When I first started eating keto a few years ago, I was pleasantly surprised to find that the internet is full of resources. But as I delved deeper into the high fat interwebs, I found that most of the content surrounding keto pertains to a male experience, with little insight as to how a low carb high fat way of eating might differ for women.
I didn’t let that deter me because I was ready for all the bacon, so I dove in head first … only to end up feeling like hot garbage 6 months into my keto experience. I learned the hard way that while some women might do well on a classic ketogenic diet, I am not one of those women — my hormones need more support! If I could do it all over again, I would give myself the grace to experiment and do what feels best in my body.
Luckily, you don’t have to make the same mistakes. I’ve worked through the whole trial and error process and compiled a list of my best keto resources … for women!
