The lowdown on Keto (and how to make it work for you…)
Whether you’re in it for weight loss, health or simply fancy giving it a go, we’ve stacks of healthy meal ideas to help you navigate your keto journey with ease.
As with any healthy diet, it’s important to take a balanced approach and factor in plenty of nutritious vegetables, protein and healthy fats to ensure your body gets the nutrition it needs.
Tips for success:-
- Try to keep your daily net carb intake around 25g or less
- Plan your meals to help you get organised for the week ahead

- Be vigilant about food choices and aim for nutritious food sources – there are plenty of low carb options out there.
- Track your macros with an App to help you hit your targets
- Cook from scratch so you know exactly what goes into your food
- Working on weight loss? Aim for a calorie deficit each day (burning off more calories than you’re consuming)
