You're Not Setting Yourself Up For Success
On that same note, you also want to prepare your surroundings. According to wellness expert Nikki Sharp, the reason most people "fall off the wagon" when it comes to trying a new diet is because they're not doing any prior preparation. When you're stuck in traffic or you're not home and don't have easy access to keto-friendly foods, you're more likely to opt for more convenient, less healthy foods.
Low-carb veggies and packets of nut butter are great snacks to keep you fueled on the go and won't spike your blood sugar.
Sharp advises meal prepping and keeping healthy snacks for life's unexpected moment. A big philosophy in her book, Meal Prep Your Way to Weight Loss, is about managing your circumstances. When you're prepared, you feel empowered to stay on track with your new lifestyle.
