There is a proven way to help you out of a rut or through a plateau. The single most important factor for long-term weight loss and health success, is having a support system. The right keto diet pal will do it.
Having a like-minded keto diet pal(s), one or more people you care about and click with, dramatically increases your chances of success.
A keto diet pal provides a powerful combination of support, accountability, and motivation to stick with your ketogenic/low-carb lifestyle.
The right keto diet pal(s) can play the role of teammate, co-coach and cheerleader — all while leading the ketogenic lifestyle together.
If you feel like you have a responsibility and commitment toward your keto diet pal(s), you are more likely to follow through on that commitment and surely increases your chances of sticking with your program.
You will find yourself connecting with your keto diet pal(s) more intimately than you might if you were just meeting over coffee.
Your keto diet pal(s) will not only get you through your keto program, but can help you through other every day life challenges as well.
We are social beings. Our need for interpersonal support is primal. We seek the company and positive reinforcement of others, especially when we face challenges. Your keto diet pal(s) will motivate you to stick with your diet when you feel like you have just had enough and want to give up.
Who Can and Should You Keto Partner With?
Typically friends or colleagues, who diet together are ideal. But remember; your keto diet pal(s) doesn’t have to be your best friend(s).
Folks who do share a similar commitment to health through nutrition are great. They are surely supportive rather than distraction.
Your keto diet pal(s) should have similar health goals through nutrition. Do not pick pals from radically different level of health.
Geographical location of your keto diet pal(s) is important. It makes sense to connect with the people you may be able to see on a regular basis. This is a great arrangement for close friends, co-workers, neighbors or stay-at-home parents.
How Do You Achieve Best Results?
Be in touch. Send reminder texts or emails.
Push your partner, then reinforce her efforts with praise.
Suggest new ideas and recipes to keep things interesting and prevent plateaus.
Remind keto diet pal(s) of his or her goals and encourage him or her when the going gets rough.
Keep tabs on each other through illness, travel and other routine-breakers. It will make it easier to get back on track.
Talk about topics other than keto. The more you care about your partner as a person, the stronger your alliance will be. But don’t wallow in negative talk. It’s an energy downer.
