Healthy Keto Diet Tips for Fall

Goodbye summer, hello fall!

This is my favorite time of year because of the crisp mornings, the leaves changing colors, and the holidays are getting closer and closer!

Here are 6 tips to help you enjoy this fall season, while still staying in ketosis. 

 

 

Tip #1 Go Full-Fat with your Hot Drinks

This may be the most important tip for staying in ketosis this fall. Avoid the sugar, but add the fat. This will keep you full and satisfied, so you aren't tempted by all the sugary treats and baked goods associated with fall.

Starbucks has become the keto coffee shop of choice due to their accommodation of the needs of keto dieters. A couple drink options to try are;

  • Americano- An Americano is an espresso and water (which is naturally low-carb) You can order it as is, or add heavy whipping cream to add fat. To make it a latte, request foam on top. Or go one step further, and add 2 pumps of sugar-free vanilla syrup to create a vanilla latte. 
  • Cappuccino- Replace regular milk with half water, half heavy cream for less carbs and more fat.
  • Mocha- Replace mocha sauce with sugar-free mocha sauce, and replace milk with half heavy whipping cream, half water.  
  • Chai Brewed Tea- When requesting a keto chai, you have to ask for the brewed tea, otherwise it comes in powder form, full of sugar. Add heavy cream and 2 pumps of sugar-free cinnamon dolce for added flavor. 
  • Other tea options- Get creative with your teas! You can add heavy whipping cream and sugar-free syrup to any of the brewed teas. 

Or avoid the overpriced coffee all-together, and make hot chocolate at home that contains actual ketones!

Tip #2 Avoid the Halloween Candy by Offering Your Kids a Trade

Halloween has become so hard when you are avoiding sugar. Because all the candy is miniature sized, its easy to rationalize eating just a couple pieces. Though once you give your brain that sugar high, it will crave more and lead to more rationalizing!

So it's best if you avoid buying candy for trick-or-treaters until the last minute.

And to be even more safe, buy candy you don't enjoy. If you feel confident enough, you can nix the candy all-together and just hand out stickers, toys, or pencils. As long as it isn't toothbrushes, you should safe from being "egged". 

Now onto the next battle. Your children have brought home pillow-cases full of candy.

What do you do?

You offer to buy the candy from them, that they can spend on new toys! Genius, right?

This works great! You can give them 5-10 cents per piece of candy. When it is all added up, it should give them a couple of dollars they can then spend at the dollar store, and you can toss the candy out. 

Battle won parents.
