WELCOME TO VIVICA’S KETO RESOURCES
Hi! If you are new to the Keto lifestyle you might not know where and what to get to best track your progress or make a special Keto Paleo recipe! I decided to make a handy keto resources list here so you could get you new keto lifestyle started smoothly!
My Keto Meal Plans:
Ketone tracking: Before keto adaptation you can simply track your progress with inexpensive Ketone Urine Strips
After about 3 weeks , you will become keto adapted and the urine strips will not read anymore.
Now you have the option to use 2 measuring devices:
A better long term alternative would be a Ketone Breath Meter, like the Ketonix. Which will last forever and be quite accurate.
I also recommend a Glucose Meter Kit to test blood sugar levels as you are keto adapting.
If you have to test your glucose many times a day and you are a needle phobic like me, I suggest getting a Genteel. It’s a great way to get your blood sample with no pain or trauma! USE coupon code VIV10OFF for $10 discount!!
As you get keto adapted your body will process minerals in a different way and mineral supplementation becomes more relevant.
Here are some generic suggestions for a basic keto mineral protocol:
- 5000 mg of sodium chloride (salt) Best: Celtic Sea Salt or Himalayan Salt.
- 1000 mg of potassium (chloride or sulfate)
- 300 mg of magnesium (chelated) Best: Calm or Magnesium Lactate
- 1000mg Calcium Lactate
- Chromium 200 mcgr 3x day to facilitate glucose level balance
I also strongly recommend the use of a probiotic to help heal and stabilize the gut and prevent constipation. I use one of the new generation of Soil Based Probiotics: Prescript Assist
