Most people cringe when they hear the words keto because they think it means boring, repetitive meals, tons of bacon, and always feeling hungry. And while bacon is never a bad thing in my book I could see how the idea of eating it day in and day out may not sound appealing. Lucky for you, that’s not what it’s all about; keto is all about balancing healthy fats and low carbs so you look and feel your best.
I should know- I’ve been following a keto diet for the past 7 years. Fact is, there are a variety of foods you can eat and yes, you can feel full while taking in fewer carbs. Don’t believe me? Then check out, and try my favorite keto diet recipes and see for yourself.
