Clean & Healthy Keto Tips: 9 Common Mistakes Everyone Makes Doing Keto (Ketogenic Diet)

I started a CLEAN KETO diet this week. You know me, I love my research. So, in the spirit of my new eating plan, I decided to delve into the world of keto and find some videos on healthy and CLEAN keto eating! I hope you enjoy!

For today’s morning video we have:

9 Common Mistakes Everyone Makes Doing Keto (Ketogenic Diet)

In this video, Dr. Berg tells us the top 9 mistakes to avoid when doing a keto diet. Number 4 is a pet peeve of mine – “omitting vegetables”. This is a HUGE HUGE HUGE mistake, and Dr. Berg explains why in this video. He recommends 7 – 10 cups of vegetables every day.   Since really delving into this keto world, I’ve seen a disturbing trend and discovered the dark side of keto – AKA-dirty keto.

About Tamara Hoerner (1303 Articles)
Welcome to The Purple Almond! My name is Tamara Hoerner. I am a student at Hawthorn University working toward a Master of Science in Health and Nutrition Education. For me, the name Purple Almond symbolizes “Good, nutritious, whole food bringing light and life to the body, awakening the inherent healing mechanisms within.” I'm all about getting back to the basics, good old fashioned traditional organic, whole food, the kind your great-grandmother used to eat. You'll find no processed foods here. Just good food to heal your whole body. I also believe a healthy body isn't just about food. Stress plays a large part in the physical health of our body. I, therefore, believe in using anything that relieves stress and heals the body, including: mediation, yoga, music, laughter, inspiration and helping others. You'll find all these included in my blog as well.
