3 Day menu to get your body into #ketosis quickly

A simplified 3 Day Keto Diet Meal Plan

If you’re coming from a standard American diet, looking over the skimpy variety of foods allowed for the first three days on the keto diet might look a bit scary. A ketogenic diet is going to be a major lifestyle change, so take it slow. 

Don’t panic.

You also shouldn’t make it overly important right now. 

Switching from a typical diet to low carb comes with a huge learning curve. Don’t expect to be perfect. The name of the game isn’t perfection. The name of the game is permanent change.
