11 mistakes in keto should not fall into them
keto mistakes, At this point I’ve been living a Keto lifestyle for about a year and a half and I’ve lost 82 pounds by walking and eating keto at Disney World. And in writing that one short sentence I immediately find myself guilty of the first keto mistake I want to share with you: Comparing yourself to others.
ACTUALLY, the BIGGEST mistake I’ve made was mistaking a jar of jalapeño juice for pickle juice one morning when I needed to do something about my legs cramping up, and I took a big swig of the jalapeño juice by mistake!
…but we’re not talking THAT kind of keto mistake here. lol.
I’ll be the first to tell you I’ve been open to making mistakes along the way so I could make this weight loss journey a success. Yes, making mistakes are a part of achieving success with keto just like it is in every other area of life. What has surprised me are the mistakes that I’ve made which people warned me about. I’d love for my mistakes to help you avoid them as you go on your keto journey.
Let’s jump right into these 11 keto mistakes to avoid!
Keto Mistakes To Avoid
Mistakes Keto 1 – Comparing Yourself To Others
The truth is, you already know this, just like I did (and do). Yet, for some reason, we seem to torture ourselves by comparing the weight others have lost to our number. While I am proud of the 82 pounds I’ve lost on keto, I also know others who have done this in less than a year.
Everyone’s body is different. Everyone approaches keto in their own unique way. It never does any good for you to compare yourself to others. The best way to combat this is by comparing yourself to who you were before.
All it takes is a quick thought remembering how awesome I feel now compared to how I used to feel to snap me out of the comparison game! Don’t allow this keto mistake to keep you down.
Mistakes Keto 2 – Freaking Out Over The Scale
In the early months, I thought I should be losing more weight than I was. My food consumption was on point, my activity level was on point, but the scale was not moving fast at all and I began to wonder if I was going to be able to lose the weight.
Mistakes Keto 3 – Too Many Nuts & Too Much Cheese
Yes, on Keto you can have nuts and cheese. But I found myself eating these by the pound and by the jar. I was simply substituting prior to bad eating habits with food that was “keto-friendly” making them “bad” from the amount I was consuming.
