How to Read Labels When You’re Doing the Keto Diet

As you adopt more of the keto lifestyle, you become more aware of what you're eating. This means that you spend more time reading labels. And let me tell you, labels can be very confusing. Many products that are labeled "keto-friendly" because they are lower in carbs aren't really keto-friendly.

Why You Should Go Grain Free

When many people adopt the keto diet, they do “dirty” or “lazy” keto; they take the “If It Fits In Your Macros (IIFIYM)” approach.
