Ketogenic Diet Plan in 30 Days

Ketogenic Diet Plan in 30 Days
Ketogenic Diet Plan 

Ketogenic Diet Plan in 30 Days - The following pages consist of my 30 day ketogenic diet meal plan that you can follow for a whole month. Naturally, it’s up to you if you want to follow it precisely or make changes here and there. You can mix and match these meals as you like.

At the end of this section I include a list of ketogenic-safe ingredients you can add or subtract as you like.

Points to Keep in Mind When Following the Meal Plan
My 30 day meal plan is only a sample, of course. It’s meant to show you that there are many choices for meals with this diet. While the Ketogenic Diet may seem quite restrictive, it still leaves you quite a few foods.

When planning your meals, it’s a good idea to get creative. Otherwise you might get bored eating the same foods every day. For example, eggs are a staple for many people on this diet. There are, however, many ways to prepare eggs. Scrambled, fried, hard boiled, deviled, in omelettes and so forth.

When it comes to cheese, you also have a huge range of options. Where it recommends “slice of cheese” for a snack, that doesn’t mean you have to eat the same variety of cheese every day!

Naturally, meat also can be prepared in many different ways. There are all kinds of fish to choose from, and many ways to cook seafood as well. You don’t want to get into a rut with your Ketogenic Diet.

You probably noticed that I included an optional glass of wine with dinner in the above meal plan. You can also have this later in the evening if you prefer. Wine is full of beneficial antioxidants such as resveratrol.

One glass of wine is not going to provide you with many carbs or sugar and some people find it pleasant and helpful for digestion and relaxation.

On the other hand, if you are sensitive to alcohol, allergic to it or have a history of alcoholism, you should obviously avoid it.

Other types of alcohol are far less beneficial than wine. Beer, for example, is very high in carbs.

Stay Hydrated
Drinking plenty of water is a must when you go on the Ketogenic Diet. This is a good topic to mention after side effects, as this is something that can help you reduce or prevent many such symptoms.

You don’t have to go to extremes with drinking water, but you should make sure you drink the recommended 8 glasses of water per day. That number is often cited, but it’s not precise. It varies depending on your own metabolism and level of activity.

Your climate even makes a difference. If you’re in the desert in summer you will obviously need more water than someone living in a cooler region.

Make sure you are drinking enough water. A good guideline is to double your daily intake of water when you start the Ketogenic Diet -unless you normally drink a large amount of water already.

If this seems excessive, you can modify it, but remember that hydration is extremely important when dieting.
