Even before you begin restricting yourself and cutting back on sugar and carbohydrates, the cravings consume your thoughts. Winning the mental game of the Keto diet is half the battle. If I say don’t think about lions, what do you do? Think about lions. So, if you can’t have pizza, cookies, cake and bread, then what do you want to eat? All of the above!
That’s where FRESH can help. It’s easier now more than ever to stay on track and also satisfy those cravings with some guilt free alternatives. Wander the aisles of the store and you will see more and more products that are labeled Keto friendly. There are also several sweeteners that keep you in ketosis and are made with all-natural ingredients. The most well-known are made from monkfruit and stevia.
