This blog post is dedicated to folks who are just getting started with Keto diet plan and would like to continue eating delicious South Indian food.
I know there are so many keto diet articles out there that are very useful. When I first started keto diet there were very few resources with South Indian dishes. Sharing my first weeks diet plan with delicious South Indian dishes.
In short, Keto diet is a high-fat, low-carb diet. Keto diet forces your body to burn fats for energy instead of carbs. Your body breaks down fats into ketosis, instead of turning carbohydrates into glucose for fuel.
Before we start here are few suggestions to get started with Keto diet:
1. Make a plan
Make a plan and buy keto-friendly groceries for the upcoming days or a week. Keto Diet Grocery Shopping List For Beginners is an excellent resource to get started, know what to eat and what not to eat.
2. Make it your own
You do not have to follow someone else’s diet plan. Instead continue to eat same dishes that you enjoy eating but with keto-friendly substitutes.
For example, Substitute wheat flour with almond flour, sona masuri rice with shirataki rice, sugar with stevia, and so on.
