The word ‘FATs’ is taboo
As people grow they are regularly told to stay away from FAT but in keto diet you have to eat fat to shed fat. This sounds stupid but it works. After you determine daily fat macros there will be need to consume right kind of fats in massive amounts. More than 75% food consumed needs to be loaded with fats will be from natural trans-fat, saturated fats, polyunsaturated fats and monounsaturated fats. Shockingly, this is crucial for the success of this diet plan. Therefore, never be concerned about fat amount you need to eat.
Not keeping yourself hydrated
Drinking at least one gallon of water daily is the hardest thing to do. It also means frequent trips to bathroom but soon your body gets used to this amount of water drinking and will start to handle it much better. Water helps your body organs function properly. In addition, you are losing plenty of electrolytes and fluids which can be replaced through water. If you are not hydrated then the body will store fat, which is opposite of what is desired.
Insufficient sleep, not handling stress, and comparing yourself with others is also not helpful. Such mistakes are unavoidable once you gain awareness and prepare yourself appropriately.
