6 Common Keto Mistakes You're Probably Making

The ketogenic diet, known as “keto” for short, has exploded in popularity thanks to its quick weight loss results. Many people turn to this low-carb, high-fat dietary plan to aid in weight loss by forcing their body into ketosis, a state where you burn fat instead of glucose for energy. 

(Here’s everything you need to know about the science behind keto.) 


However, the keto diet isn’t exactly the most balanced approach to weight loss, and many people regain weight if they’re not eating the right foods — or are making common keto diet mistakes. Like many highly restrictive diets, affordability, convenience and long-term sustainability are the biggest roadblocks to maintaining ketosis. 


Here are six of the biggest keto diet mistakes and how you can avoid them by making healthier choices. Regardless of which diet you’re following, all of these tips can help support your weight loss efforts. 


Remember to always consult your healthcare provider before beginning a weight loss program.
