We have many resources for people who need guidance on their low-carb journey. I have two free guides at the top of my mind, and both are especially useful if one is struggling with weight loss:

Other than that, we also have many helpful videos. Here are the top ones right now:


2. Eat enough fat

Don’t be afraid of fat! It is healthy and helps you stay satisfied and on track with your low-carb diet.

A tip is to try to eat enough to feel satisfied and not hungry after a meal, but avoid adding fat beyond that.

If you hit a weight plateau after having followed a low-carb diet for a while, the solution isn’t to drink more Bulletproof coffee or eat a dozen fat bombs a day. I’ve been there and done that, and it didn’t help me lose weight.

But don’t be afraid of fat either, as it actually helps you keeping the fat-storing hormone insulin low. It’s about finding a balance and getting to know your body.

Does this make you confused? Are you not sure how to eat fat on your low-carb diet? Do you want more advice on how much fat to aim for? Then the guide below is for you.

3. Try fasting

If you have been eating low carb for a while, but don’t get the results you sought after when it comes to weight loss or type 2 diabetes reversal etc., then intermittent fasting might be a good next step. Many people report that it ramps up weight loss and other health benefits.

So are you ready to try it? Just make sure to check out this guide first:
