What is Lazy Keto? How To Start?

Lazy Keto is a simplified version of the traditional ketogenic diet. It is a high-fat, moderate-protein, very-low-carbohydrate diet that focuses on limiting carbohydrate intake to a minimal amount, usually 20-50 grams per day, in order to induce a state of ketosis in the body. The “lazy” aspect of the diet refers to the fact that there is less emphasis on tracking macronutrient ratios and monitoring food intake, and more on simply reducing or eliminating carbohydrate-rich foods.

How To Start Lazy Keto?

Here are the basic steps to start a lazy keto diet:

  1. Reduce your intake of carbohydrate-rich foods. This includes grains, sugars, and most fruits. Instead, focus on eating non-starchy vegetables, healthy fats, and moderate amounts of protein.
  2. Limit your daily carbohydrate intake to 20-50 grams. This may require some experimentation to find the right amount for you.
  3. Don’t obsess over macronutrient ratios. While traditional ketogenic diets recommend a specific ratio of fat to protein to carbs, lazy keto simply involves reducing carbohydrate intake.
  4. Be mindful of your electrolyte intake, especially sodium, potassium, and magnesium, as they may become imbalanced due to the decrease in carb intake.
  5. Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated.
  6. Monitor your progress, including body weight and ketone levels, but don’t obsess over numbers.

It’s also important to note that it’s always a good idea to consult with a medical professional before starting any new diet, especially if you have any pre-existing medical conditions.
