The world is shifting to healthy lifestyle patterns because of which there has been an upsurge in the number of people experimenting with alternative lifestyles. One of the most popular diets is Keto diet which predominantly focuses on high-fat, moderate-protein and low-carb food. 

In spite of having numerous research-backed benefits, countless individuals still mess up the whole dietary requirement because of their limited knowledge. From eating too much of what is allowed to restricting oneself way over the limit, following a keto diet is not a walk in the park. Here we’ve master-crafted a list of top mistakes people make on a keto diet: 



Contrary to the popular belief that focuses on reducing the intake of vegetables, a well-formulated keto diet is extensively plant-based. This is because vegetables, like celery, asparagus and bok choy, are sources of micronutrients and fiber. In fact, the insoluble fiber present in some vegetables acts as a cleaner by moving through your digestive tract without getting absorbed in the body. 


A large number of people who are on keto diet end up eating huge amounts of proteins! While eating protein is definitely a requisite and will be worthwhile, remember that mindless eating of chicken or other sources of proteins can take you down the road. It is a known fact that your body converts excess protein into glycogen which in turn is converted into fats. Thus, making you put up more instead of shedding those extra pounds. 


Isn’t it foolishly funny how we underestimate the merits of water? People usually drink lesser than the desired quantity of water on a daily basis. However, the keto diet requires one to drink more amount of water throughout the diet. This is due to the fact that keto diet cuts down on carbs thus; your body needs water from somewhere else.

 “According to one study, people who consumed 500 ml of water before a meal shed 44 percent more weight over a time period of 12 weeks than those who did not”! 


While the ketogenic diet loudly exclaims ‘Fat, Fat and fat’, people often mistake it for ‘UNLIMITED Fat, Fat, and Fat’ and end up consuming wrong fats, which disrupts the keto cycle. While the saturated fats found in dairy and meat products are no longer the devils they were once assumed to me, many credible health organizations like the American Heart Association, suggest limiting your saturated fat intake to just 13 grams a day. 


 Whether it is keto diet or any of its alternatives, processed food has never done any good to anyone. We all love shortcuts but they only end up making the road to weight reduction longer than ever. These processed foods include sauces, marinades, alcohol, etc.  In addition to this, processed fats increase the risk of heart diseases and cancer.


The biggest reason for the ketogenic diet’s popularity is its benefits. It detoxifies the body and helps you lead a stress-free life.

However, you need to fix these avoidable mistakes to fully enjoy its advantages. 

Along with these tips, you must also give your body complete rest with a good night’s sleep.

Keto is not just a fad; it’s a holistic lifestyle. All you need to do is stay true to your goal by following these tips. 

May you achieve complete physical and mental transformation with Keto. Happy Ketoing.
