The best way to stick to a health plan is to set yourself up for success by making simple and ready to go food to help keep you on track with your nutrition plan.
While following a Keto diet is easier at home, what about those times when you’re on the go and don’t know what’s REALLY in the food dishes at the restaurants you’re visiting?
My sweet and hard-working husband has successfully followed a ketogenic diet for 3 months now and is down 30 pounds. He has a job with frequent travel and one of the best ways for him to stick to his keto program, is by prepping low carb food at home and taking it with him.
What works best for me is by sticking to a whole foods plan, but I admit, so many of the keto recipes he creates or reads about online have been delicious!

I truly think one of the reasons my husband’s been so successful with the Keto diet is because of fried cheese.
