Discover Exactly What To Eat To MakeYour Body Burn More Fat

Reasons Why People Fail on Keto

Mike | April 3

Hello Dear Friends,

This is Mike Miryala here again.

Today’s topic is a unique and tough one for me. It was asked in our Keto40 community and I had to do some research on it, talk to Keto Gurus, and do a customer survey. I generally stay away from negativity but I had to answer the question.

The topic was – Why do people generally fail on Keto?

Now, I want to remind you that this is not one-size-fits-all. There are a lot of things at play when you switch to the “Keto Lifestyle”. So take these with a grain of salt, maybe BHB.

One thing I do want to call out is “the last reason” on this list is the top reason.

Lastly, one humble request – please let me know on any topic you want me to do a deep dive from the below list.

Why People Fail on Keto:

  1. Not consuming enough fat: The ketogenic diet is high in fat, moderate in protein, and low in carbohydrates. If you don’t consume enough fat, your body will not enter ketosis.
  2. Eating too many carbs: Even small amounts of carbs can kick you out of ketosis, so it’s important to keep track of your carb intake.
  3. Not getting enough electrolytes: The ketogenic diet can cause an electrolyte imbalance, which can lead to symptoms such as fatigue, cramping, and headaches.
  4. Not drinking enough water: The ketogenic diet can cause dehydration, so it’s important to drink plenty of water.
  5. Skipping meals: Skipping meals can slow your metabolism and make it harder to enter ketosis.
  6. Eating processed foods: Processed foods often contain hidden carbs and other ingredients that can kick you out of ketosis.
  7. Not getting enough sleep: Lack of sleep can make it harder to enter ketosis and can also lead to weight gain.
  8. Not exercising: Exercise can help boost your metabolism and make it easier to enter ketosis.
  9. Not measuring ketone levels: Measuring your ketone levels can give you a better idea of whether you are in ketosis or not.
  10. Giving up too soon: The ketogenic diet can be challenging, and it may take time for your body to adjust. It’s important to be patient and not give up too soon.
