Transitioning from a Standard American Diet (SAD) to a very low carb or ketogenic diet can seem like as if you’re moving to a completely different country where the currency (macronutrients) and language are very different. Although it seems that way, some of us can make the transition by swapping out just a few of our everyday favorites and by adding even more of the higher fat, tastier food we truly love!
Here’s what happened when I wrote down everything that I used to eat and then added foods that I can enjoy while following keto. I marked through the foods that I would no longer eat, highlighted the foods I could keep and then added more food ideas in the column to the right.
Notice that I can eat a lot of delicious foods! Some were foods that I ate previously while some foods I was able to add because I was no longer eating low fat (bacon and butter, yes please!).
Also notice that while you’re basic shopping list might change a little, much of the food that we eat daily on a ketogenic diet is very basic and is readily available at local grocers.

I am on day 6, I had started 3 months ago and lost 18 pounds but I didn’t really know what I was doing, I purchased your book and it explains EVERYTHING! I was counting daily totals for my macros and not meeting the percentages for each meal. Thank you so much Kristie!
Do you have a sample seven day meal plan to help me get started
Yes, there are two in the book that go along with our 28-day guide!
