How, When, & Why To Quit Keto — #116

by | Aug 30, 2019 | ketoforwomen

Have you ever thought about quitting keto and wondering how to do it? A lot of you have requested for this topic, so in this episode, I share some tips and my own experience: I what I did, what I didn’t do, and when I knew it was time to quit keto.

Topics Discussed in this Episode:

  • Why food freedom should be your end goal
  • The potential reasons to quit keto
  • When you should potentially consider quitting keto
  • How to quit keto
  • How to not go back to eating crap

Key Takeaways:

  • Keto is a very important, very helpful healing protocol or tool for many people, but that doesn’t mean that you need to be on that forever.
  • When you know that your healing protocol has ended, now it’s time for you to start more of your intuition and going with the flow.
  • Whether keto or not, your end goal should be in this place of freedom around food; to have a healthy relationship with food; to be able to use your intuition 100% of the time with food and to just not worry about it.
  • You can’t go into keto, or any diet for that matter, wanting weight loss.
  • To be severely restricting or eliminating one food group for no reason isn’t real life. The goal, no matter what, should always be to include as much food into your diet, not continue excluding food from your diet.
  • There are still no long-term studies showing that keto does anything for weight loss. Furthermore, there are no studies of any diet showing long-term weight loss because diets don’t work.

Action Steps:

  • If you want to quit keto, let your intuition guide you and start eating more carbs.
  • Be guided by your body, your health, and your intuition rather than give in to sugar cravings.
  • Always have the widest variety of foods you possibly can in your diet.
  • Don’t force keto on yourself if you don’t enjoy it. Even if you have a medical condition that you are using keto to work on, go to your health practitioner or nutritionist and tell them you don’t want to do keto anymore.
  • How to quit keto:
  1. Notice what sounds good in all aspects of nourishment, pleasure, and satisfaction. Is it still high fat, moderate protein, and low carbs that sounds really good as far as how you’re going to nourish your body? If not, continue thinking more about what does sound good.
  2. Be intentional with your food. Experiment and be fully aware of how you feel when you start to reintroduce foods that you haven’t had since you went keto.
  3. Take your time getting out of ketosis.
  4. Work on your diet mindset in the process.
  5. Have no fear. 
  • Keep a full stock of real foods you love in your house and find real food alternatives also.
  • Be proud of yourself and what you’ve done using keto, and respect that.

“No matter what, get rid of that diet mindset. Look beyond your weight gain or weight loss and really see what’s going on.”

“You are not a failure for not continuing keto. It has nothing to do with you as a person. There is nothing wrong with you. You don’t owe anyone any explanation as to why you’re not following keto anymore.”
