Planning for Keto: Plan To Succeed! 

When it comes to the keto diet, your success will lie in your planning. Making sure you have the proper foods on hand when you begin your diet will go a long way toward your ongoing weight loss.

There are many suggestions for keto diet meals in the keto books, and there are plenty of resources online for keto and low-carb recipes.

Planning your meals, snacks, and even desserts will be an important part of your life when you are on this diet.

When you eat whatever you like, you gain weight. Your current weight and health problems are a direct result of letting your eating habits go unchecked which is why you are on this diet in the first place.

So instead of caving when you really want something sweet and delicious, plan ahead! 

As with all diet plans, becoming used to the keto way of eating is going to take some time and adjustment.

As much as other websites may focus on restriction, restriction, restriction, I am a realist.

I know what it’s like to crave chocolate and go on a three-day binge.

That’s why I expect and encourage you to make foods you WANT to eat. I hate tuna (most days) so I know it is a meal that I will have very rarely. I also know I only like expensive canned tuna. For those reasons I keep a few cans on hand but don’t ever put it in my meal plan. Every once in awhile I will think, man tuna salad sounds amazing right now, and I’ll eat it, but for the most part, I’d rather not. 

Nothing says I have to eat tuna, so why would I force it? The same applies to you. Eat what you love on keto. Find keto-friendly versions of all your favorite foods and keep enjoying your life. 


There are two different approaches you can take in adjusting your diet. You can find replacements for your favorite foods with mock carbohydrates. For example, lasagna made with eggplant or zucchini instead of pasta is much more carb-friendly than the regular variety. Spaghetti squash noodles make a good substitute for spaghetti noodles. There are also many low-carb or carb-free replacements for bread, pasta and sugar products.

The second approach is to find out how to make new recipes that center around meats and other low-carb foods. There are a wide variety of meats that are acceptable on the keto plan.

If you are used to just eating ground beef or chicken on a weekly basis, you’ll be surprised by the variety of meats that are out there. Try incorporating pork, lamb, and ham into your weekly routine.

You can also experiment with game fowl like Cornish hen, quail, and pheasant. If you’ve never been a fan of fish, try a different variety. Some people who don’t like trout find they have a love of salmon or another fish.

Don’t forget shellfish like mussels, clams, and shrimp. These foods are all acceptable and can add variety to your diet.

Make sure to have some easy to prepare foods on hand for snacks and quick meals. For example, thin sliced cucumbers, radishes and celery mixed with lemon mayonnaise makes a great low-carb meal or dinner salad.

Fried peppers, mushrooms and garlic served on arugula with feta cheese is another good option.

Research and try out different low-carb recipes so you have a good base of knowledge of what to prepare for meals.

The most important step you can take in losing weight is planning. Getting a good arsenal of easy to prepare meals will prevent you from hitting the drive-through or going to a restaurant and breaking your diet.

If you have delicious food to look forward to every day, you’ll be less bored with your diet. There are many food combinations that you can use. At first glance, the vegetable and meat options may seem restrictive. But this is only in comparison to what you have been used to eating. With a little planning and creativity, you can find something interesting to eat every day.

My favorite ways to really mix up my meals is by adding fats I don’t eat on a regular basis. Try to find new ways to eat avocados, coconut oil, or even add a little butter to something you normally wouldn’t.

There’s no limit to the combinations you can come up with to make delicious meals.
