Grownup Gripes: I’ve got enough on my plate I don’t have enough time to start counting foods.
I hear you it’s the last thing you want to do but there are apps to make it easier so find one you like but be mindful not all calories are the same.
This is crucial when going low carb as your protein and fat have to be so high and your carb intake has to be so low to kick into ketosis.
My Pediatrician who used Keto to help with her son’s epilepsy (successfully) gave me this acronym on her MD stationary. See below.
Essentially eating PROTEIN should be your priority and everything else will fall into place.
As long as you eat protein every time you put something in your mouth, you should be good.

As for the low-carb portion of the equation you can keep those down by eating high-fiber foods.
If you don’t feel like tracking each carb the most important thing to look out for are NET carbs.
The net carbs you eat refer to the number of carbohydrates you eat minus the fiber. Even though fiber is a carb it doesn’t effect ketosis. Fiber is essential and it helps make you feel full.
Satiation on a diet is a good thing. Get as many foods below in as you can and you’ll be all good.
