The Challenges of Summer!
I am sure some of you have wondered how to stay on track with Keto in Summertime.
All those tomatoes and zucchini, those giant watermelons, those ripe peaches and nectarines….Then the parties, the BBQs, the ice cream socials!
Seems like you could never succeed with your Keto plan in such a mine filed of temptations.
Summer is actually a great tie for Keto, like any other time, but we can use some little strategies to make staying on track even easier.
1. Stay Hydrated!
Lots of times cravings and hunger are nothing but a symptom of dehydration and lack of electrolytes. Make sure you drink plenty of water through the day, about half your body weight in ounces is the minimum you should drink, I would double that in hot days where you spend lots of time outdoors.
So if you are 120lb = 60 Oz of water in a day = That is about 8 glasses of ounces of water!
Good choices for drinks are water with a pinch of Sea Salt , iced herbal teas, or the occasional flavored sparkling water (with no sweetener!!)
I also use Peppermint Spirits a lot: a drop or two in your glass of water for a fresh minty flavor with no sugar and no guilt. It is actually a medicinal and helps the digestion!
PS I also got myself a cool glass bottle (like this one) to take with me everywhere!
