“How do I start Keto?”
Ever since I started Keto, I’ve been asked several times each week what I recommend people do to get started. I wanted to share what I did to prepare for Keto, knowing it’s a major change, and what I recommend others do so they are better set up for success.

Step 1: Research Why and How Keto Works
For some, this includes watching the documentary “The Magic Pill”. For me, I waited until I was five weeks in to watch it because I have a bad taste in my mouth when it comes to documentaries and how one-sided they are. If you like documentaries and can watch this one with a grain of salt without being a crazy person about it, watch it. But don’t use it as your basis for starting Keto. The documentary is great, but know that the results are not going to be the same for everyone. Truly dig around on the internet for reasons why it works, who it works best for, the risks involved for some people, and then decide if it’s worth trying for you. Do not just say “I’m starting Keto to lose a bunch of weight” and then jump in without doing your research. Read message boards where people ask questions and share their experiences, including blood test results. This is crucial before starting Keto.
