Hey everyone, welcome back to the Heal Nourish Grow Podcast. Today we're going to discuss how to get started on keto. We're getting close to the beginning of a new year and what happens every single year is people set New Year's resolutions. Quite often, that revolves around getting healthier in some way, or losing weight, or changing habits. So I wanted to give this to you as a resource so if you're not doing keto or low carb yet, you'll hae some more information on why it might be something to try, some of the benefits, some of the things that it can do for you. If you already are low carb or keto, you might start getting questions at the beginning of the new year from your friend that might want to lose a couple of pounds or change some of their habits. They might ask you how they should get started and quite often, that is a difficult position to be in because you can tell them sort of how you do it or how you think that they should approach it, but sometimes it's just easier to hear these things from somebody else. So I thought I would just give you this resource so that you have it and share it with anybody that's interested in starting to live a lower carb lifestyle. This will give them a good idea of how to get started on keto. How to Get into Ketosis Quickly So I've talked about this subject multiple times in the past and getting started on keto really comes down to  wo ways to approach it. There is the "Rip It Off Like a Band-Aid" and go all in approach. With this method you start really restricting your carbohydrates very strongly from the very beginning. This is how to get into ketosis quickly. Although I might argue there is no real reason to get into ketosis quickly, this is one way to do it. Then there's a more gentle approach and that is really the approach that I recommend. Getting into ketosis with this approach means going lower carb in a slow manner. It gives your body more time to adjust. It gives you time to adjust your mindset and it gives you time to make some changes in your household. For example, planning what types of foods you'll have in the house. Those are the two approaches to getting into ketosis. Either one you choose, you'll get into ketosis eventually and the difference is really only a couple of days to a week.
