Get Excited About Keto
You should be as excited as all get out about starting a Keto diet. Why? Because it works. And quickly too. I’ve averaged a pound a week in weight loss. For the record, I’m only 5’-1/2” tall… so I can’t eat as many calories as a “regular-sized/height” woman of, say, 5’-5”… I’m sure a larger lady would lose weight at a faster speed!

All your macros are figured out for you inside of Cronometer. Read more about Cronometer here in Part 1 of this 3-part series.
Starting A Keto Diet Is Only As Hard As You Make It
Starting A Keto Diet Is
Only As Hard As You Make It
Going "Keto" is only as hard as you make it. I tire of reading that it’s “hard” starting a Keto diet—and staying on it. What’s hard about eating your favorite formally fat-banned foods and eating Keto sweet treats that are Keto-friendly?
OK, at first, if you find it difficult to reduce to 13 NET carbs a day (that was my Cronometer recommendation for my height, age, and weight), aim for 20 NET carbs. That’s what I am aiming for.
Read more about how to calculate the all-important NET CARBS here.
If people think it’s “hard”… maybe they’re still hankering after bread. Fair enough. As mentioned above, that’s why I’ve been eating ThinSlim Rye Bread and "Everything Bread"… you can make fabulous BLT’s and have ZERO guilt and zero net carbs (bread-wise).
Realizing you have to give up sugar-laden sweets can be gut-wrenching. But NOT ANYMORE! That's why I provided you with that long list of keto sweet treats that you CAN consume!
Sometimes it's ice cream that we miss. Not so much now with the Keto sweet treats we'll discuss below.
Sweet-Tooth Satisfied With Keto Sweet Treats!
With Keto Sweet Treats!
Get your fill of Keto sweet treats by buying the “Enlightened” brand of KETO ice creams. I’m actually sat here eating Keto-friendly Peanut Butter Fudge Ice cream by Enlightened… it’s dang delicious!
Another Keto-friendly brand to try: Rebel and the flavor shown on the right is Triple Chocolate.
I get both the Enlightened and Rebel ice cream brands from our Publix grocery store (in Florida). They cost the same per pint (just under six bucks). I'm pretty sure they'll be available in your neck of the woods, too.
