Different ways to track macros on keto, macro tracking apps, alternatives to tracking on keto, the difference between total and net carbs, and so much more.

When I first started keto, I needed a way to know if I was doing it “right” — since I had never been aware of exactly what ketosis felt like in my body before, I wasn’t able to recognize the signs. Tracking my macros and getting to know which foods were more carb dense helped me better grasp what to eat to feel my best on keto, but I knew there had to be more to keto than macro tracking with MyFitnessPal and figuring out the difference between total carbs and net carbs.

Eventually, I got to a point where my keto approach became more intuitive, and I developed a few ways to track, or stay “on track” without tracking every little thing I ate. Ultimately, I think everyone should do what works for them, but if you’re in a keto rut, maybe you just need to switch up your method!
