This is the Keto Diet Plan For Beginners and today we are going to walk you through some step-by-step tutorials to get you started on a lifelong weight journey. Remember, this isn’t a lose weight quick scheme. This is forever.
After about three weeks of writing my low carb and keto posts, I think it’s time to share a Keto Diet Plan for those of you interested in learning more about this diet. I don’t just want to share diet basics; you need to leave here with a real understanding of how keto works. That’s my job, to make this so simple anyone can do it. Although I don’t want you to just know how to make keto work, I want you to understand keto inside and out!
Right now you probably just want to know what you need to eat, how much you should work out, and what foods you need to avoid. All of these components are important, but honestly, the most important thing you can do is truly understand how your body works, which we will get to after I give you what you want

KETO DIET PLAN FOR BEGINNERS: STATS
KNOW YOUR BODY:
1) The first thing you need to do before starting the plan is to figure out where you are right now.
Weigh and measure yourself. While BMI calculators are not the best means for figuring out your body fat, most of us don’t have the money to have this done professionally.
You need to know these stats:
Weight: It is best to weigh first thing in the morning, fully nude. This will help you keep up with your true weight before eating and without clothing.
Height: Hopefully you know this, but who knows, maybe you’ve grown!
Hips: Stand with your feet about 4 inches apart and measure the widest part of your hips.
Calf: Place your weight on your dominant leg and measure your calf at its widest part – about halfway between your knee and ankle.
Thigh: Stand with your feet about 12 inches apart. Measure your upper thigh at the widest part
Wrist: Measure in the dip between the bony part of your wrist and the start of your hand.
Forearm: Tense your muscle and measure the largest part of your forearm.
Once you have your stats, you can enter them into this BMI calculator to get your BMI. As you can see, I have about 18% body fat. Keep all of your numbers in a progress journal that you can look back on to stay motivated and track your progress. Like this one – Check it out, this journal is PERFECT! It has pages for notes, goal setting, daily targets, exercise plans, measurement charts, and even a place for progress photos! How cool is that?!
