As you can see, the keto diet has legitimate health benefits and doesn't have to be overly complicated or restrictive (there's plenty of room for loads of fibrous veggies on your plate). But the truth is, everyone is different, and because of this, you may find you need to tweak your keto approach slightly after evaluating how you feel on a more conventional ketogenic diet. For example, women may want to practice carb cycling once a month to support healthy hormone production and minimize side effects. Focus on eliminating the carbohydrates first, before focusing on adding the fat. The carbohydrate restriction is really the most important component of the diet if you want to enter ketosis.
