Ketogenic diets are very popular right now. Many people in the high tech and finance fields have been getting on this fad diet. While there are many benefits to a ketogenic diet, staying on keto is often troublesome. The ability to get enough protein while working a full schedule is not always easy, but it is necessary to stay on the diet. There are some ways you can make this process easier. In this article, we will take a look at four of the ways you can get enough fats and protein each day while on the ketogenic diet.

Consume Fats and Proteins on a Schedule

Create a schedule for times during the day where you consume fats and protein. Most dieticians recommend that you eat 5-6 times a day. This means that to properly enter a ketogenic state where you are burning fat instead of carbs you need to eat smaller meals multiple times a day. When you are able to plan your meals ahead of time, you will also resist the temptation to break down and consume some sugar or other harmful carb products.

There is also a budgetary component to a protein schedule. Since keto is often more expensive than a carb based diet, it helps to save where you can. Making meals in bulk means you can purchase ingredients in bulk. Buying in volume from a warehouse chain like Costco or Sam’s Club can make a huge dent in your monthly grocery bills.

Break Down Your Macros

Your macros determine your total daily caloric intake. They are strict caloric numbers that guide you in determining both how much as well as what kind of food you should be eating all day. Once you are able to divide your meals into sizable portions, your fat and protein consumption should improve dramatically. Having all of your macronutrients planned out will also integrate well with your workout or physical fitness plans. You can build your macros around these activities to maximize your energy levels while engaging in physical activity.

Choose Protein Sources Wisely

When choosing the protein you intake, it is important to use the right ingredients. Not all protein sources are equal. One very common pitfall of the keto diet is going high protein. Remember, that in order to make it into ketosis you must be consuming high fat, moderate protein, and low carb. When setting up your fat and protein macros, it is best to use a wide variety of protein sources. Legumes are a very popular choice. For a slightly lower carb option, soft cheeses are also commonly consumed. Avoid items that are high in protein but not in fat. Many working professionals and fitness gurus use pea protein as well.

Use Pea Protein

You may be asking yourself, “What is pea protein?” Simply put, pea protein is any pea that has been processed into a paste for easy consumption. This tasty meal will help you hit your macros. There are also health benefits to this low carb high-fat choice. Since it is high in fat, moderate in protein and low carb it should be able to fit into most macro plans.

There is a lot of buzz about keto right now. Unfortunately, there is not a huge amount of reliable information. Fortunately, you can review the previous tips in order to help stay on the keto path. Remember, that all of these tips will work best if they are all done with the knowledge that they are all working in tandem. Aligning all of your goals will make your journey to health much easier.
