Staying in Keto through a Pandemic

Fridge magnets spelling out 2020

Have you been struggling to maintain a healthy keto lifestyle this year? If so, you’re not alone! With many people facing changes in their personal and professional lives, it may be challenging to stay on top of your game and that’s okay.  

While the keto diet provides a realm of benefits, sometimes it requires a little extra planning. With a busy schedule, you can easily forget to put aside time for yourself and remember what being happy and healthy really feels like. 


These 6 tips will push you in the right direction!



 Get back to the basics


When you feel as if you’re slipping up with your keto diet, break it down and simplify the process. Refamiliarize yourself with how the diet works, how it will impact your life in a positive way and the types of food you should focus on eating more and less of! This  quick guide for beginners can help remind you of why you started your keto journey in the first place. 


It’s also helpful to return to your goals and make adjustments where needed. Did you know that writing your goals out on paper makes you more likely to take action and complete them? Use this time to check in with yourself and get clear about what you’d like to achieve with your diet and overall health. 


Remember, no one is perfect so take it easy on yourself and you’ll be back on track before you know it!


 Boost your immunity


With flu season upon us, there’s no better time to give your immune system the boost it needs. A healthy immune system will ensure you’re able to take on each day and work towards better physical and mental wellbeing. It’s not easy to find the motivation to stick to the keto diet if you’re sick with a cold or flu or finding products that will aid in immunity buildling is key!


That’s where immunity support steps in. Our  Elderberry Immune Support uses natural ingredients to provide you with peace of mind. You can also add foods that are rich in antioxidants, vitaminds and more to your everyday diet. Bell peppers, broccoli, ginger and garlic are just a few that will help support your immune system. 


 Give Your Workouts All You’ve Got


2020 has been filled with more home workouts than most of us would’ve imagined. Incorporating daily exercise into your routine is important if you want to reap all of the rewards of sticking to a ketogenic diet! 


With that being said, it’s often easier said than done to muster up enough energy at the end of the workday to squeeze in a workout. Taking advantage of pre-workout can help you find the motivation to get enough exercise in and maintain a healthy lifestyle. 


If you’re familiar with BHBs, it’s something your body produces when entering a state of ketosis. It’s  one of three bodies produced when breaking down fat and it can be used to help you along your ketogenic journey. Finding the right keto BHB can be overwhelming with so many different products to choose from. 


Vitamin Bounty’s  Crush on Keto - Cherry BHB Pre-Workout will not only assist you by supporting you with additional BHBs but it will also provide the energy needed for a killer workout! Recovery is just as important and this pre-workout improves recovery time so that you can maintain a healthy keto lifestyle. 



Find Solutions to Your Cravings


Since most of us are working from home right now, it can be a little too easy to fall into the trap of reaching for a sugary snack in the middle of the day. Opting for snacks that are high in fat instead of sugar or carbs will give you the energy you need to keep you going while maintaining your keto diet. 


Some quick keto snacks you can make at home are:


  • Coconut Chocolate Cream Cups - Calling all sweet tooths! This recipe only uses a few ingredients and is sure to curb your sugar craving. 
  • Parmesan Zucchini Fries - You can never go wrong with fries. Playing around with new vegetables when making fries from home is a great way to spice up your snacks.
  • Keto Crackers - Who knew making crackers could be so easy? This snack is delicious and perfect to munch on throughout the day. 


If you find yourself on the move, it’s always best to have a few snacks handy. This will help stop temptation in its tracks and satisfy your cravings. Try making a large batch of snacks to last you throughout the week so you don’t have to worry about going hungry or losing sight of your goals as the workweek goes on. 


Keep an Eye on Your Digestion


Whether or not you’re experiencing digestive issues while on the keto diet, it’s important to be aware of your digestion and acknowledge certain foods that may not agree with your body. Everyone is different so what works for one person, might not work for another and that’s fine. 


If you find you’re having trouble with digestion, supplementing with probiotics is a great way to regulate your system! Incorporating more greens is another way you can ensure your body is digesting foods properly but let’s face it, you don’t always feel like reaching for a plate of veggies. Greens for Keto is a delicious berry greens drink that is packed full of fruits and vegetables. It’s the perfect way to start your day and keep your stomach happy! 


Never Skip a Meal


It’s far too easy to skip meals and find yourself snacking all day long. When this happens, you don’t get the proper nutrients you need to fuel your day and provide you with lasting energy. 


Don’t let cooking feel like a chore! Dedicate time each week to prepare lunches or dinners ahead of time. This can be as simple as putting a few ingredients in an instant pot and knowing you’ll have a nutritious option waiting for you. Not having to think about what you’re going to make for lunch or dinner will create less stress in your life and help you maintain a healthy keto lifestyle. 


When you have a busy day ahead and you haven’t prepared anything, reach for  Meal for Keto instead. This chocolate protein shake is a meal replacement including healthy fats, minerals and vitamins that help you power through your schedule for the day! 


You’re Doing Your Best!


This year has brought about uncertain times where staying on top of your health is more important than ever. It’s natural to fall out of healthy habits because it’s so much easier to give up but you’re stronger than that! Put yourself first and don’t compromise when it comes to your health. 



Keep doing your best and you’ll be happy you kept going!
