10 Carb Up Meals #lowcarb #keto #carbup #hflc #ketogenic

10 examples of what a carb up looks like in a ketogenic eating style(with pictures) and how I carb up. Plus, a plate guide so you can do it, too.

My success with low-carb, keto living came when I embraced CARB TIMING.

So many women that I speak with about eating keto (low-carb, high-fat) tell me that they “can’t do it,” they often feel “off” and only, “last 30 days” or, “start losing their hair/energy/mind” and stop before the going gets good.

Upon further investigation, it ALWAYS comes up that these keto ladies did not practice carb-ups. Maybe this woman is you. Maybe you’re eating keto but not feeling right? Maybe you’re convinced that carb-ups are the way to go, but you have no idea where to start? Or, maybe you’re deathly afraid of carbs and confused why the “low-carb, keto girl” is recommending we eat carbs.

Lucky for you, you’re not the only one. Of all of the keto questions I receive on a daily basis, there are the most common (and they’re all about carb-ups!):

  • Why should I have a carb up day on keto?
  • Should women have carb nights while eating keto?
  • Who benefits from carb ups?
  • If I decide to do this carb up thing, what do I eat during a carb up?

If your brain is a mess trying to figure out this whole carb-up thing on keto, today’s keto video is a must-watch.

  1. Hello! I love your video and your story. You are very inspiring! I have a question, when it comes to hair loss, how often should I do a carb up? I have been eating a ketogenic diet now for four months and my hair has been falling out quite a bit over the last month. I lost almost 20 pounds, but have stalled. I don’t want to lose all of my hair, but I also don’t want to get sucked back into eating carbs again because my whole life seemed to revolve around them. Do you have any advise? Thank you so much!!

    • 1-3 times a week is a good place to start, but I’d just experiment and see what works best for you. You may need more, you may need less. Carb ups often help break weight stalls too ;)

  2. Hi Leanne! I’ve been watching your videos and reading your book and learning a lot. I started eating keto 3 months ago and have lost almost 35 lbs. In the last month I’ve noticed significant hair loss and within the past 2 weeks I’ve noticed a drop in energy and have been feeling fatigued. Do you think carbing up would help with both of these issues?
