6 Steps You Must Do To Be Fully Prepared Before Starting Day 1 

Step 1 : Learn The Keto Basics

Familiarize yourself with keto-approved and restricted foods by downloading our free food guide (click here to download) – you'll be referencing this handy resource throughout the program, especially if you need to substitute ingredients in any of the delicious recipes we'll be sharing!

Step 2: Clean up Your Kitchen

Remove any tempting high-carb foods from your fridge and pantry. Donate or discard anything sugary or starchy – the fewer carbs around, the better! Think chips, candy, chocolate, cookies, crackers, sugary drinks, and juices. Here is a list:

  • Breads & Baked Goods: Including bagels, muffins, pastries, cakes, pies, donuts.

  • Breakfast Cereals: This includes all sugary cereals, granola, and oatmeal.

  • Fruits: While some berries are allowed in moderation, most fruits like bananas, apples, grapes, peaches, cherries, oranges … etc have to go!

  • Starchy Vegetables: potatoes, corn, peas, and sweet potatoes.

  • Sugary Drinks: fizzy drinks, juice, iced tea, energy drinks.

  • Condiments & Sauces: Ketchup, BBQ sauce, honey mustard, and other high sugar options.

  • Sweeteners: Honey, maple syrup, brown sugar, molasses.

  • Alcohol: Beer, wine, and sugary cocktails

Step 3: Grocery Shopping for Week 1

Stock up on these essential ingredients for the first week's recipes

  • Item 1

  • Item2

  • Item 3

  • Item 4

Step 4: Prepare Keto Snacks

Having keto-friendly snacks readily available will help you stay on track, especially during the first week. Choose at least two options from our list and make sure you have them in your kitchen before starting Day 1:

  • 5 pieces of raw pecan

  • 5 pieces of raw walnuts

  • 10 pieces olives (green or black)

  • 10 grams sunflower seeds.

  • Pickles (cucumber, cauliflower, turnip,...etc) up to 10 pieces. 

  • Ketolicious Bread Sticks (2 pieces) - Sesame or Zaatar.

  • Ketolicious Moajanat Section (1 piece)

  • Cheese Sticks or Bite

Step 5: Take Some Measurements

Take these measurements & record them so they act as a reference point. 

  • Weigh yourself in the morning (after using the bathroom) and take a picture of the scale's reading. 

  • Measure your waist just above your belly button, preferably in the morning. 

  • Take full-body photos from the front and side to visually track your progress.

Step 6: The Pre-Launch Night

Tonight marks the eve of your keto transformation! Let's make the most of these final hours before you officially embark on your journey. Here's your pre-launch checklist to set yourself up for success:

1) Fuel Up:Tonight's Dinner

Tonight, you'll enjoy your first keto-friendly dinner, a fully balanced meal designed to fuel your body and prepare you for tomorrow's journey. Please choose one delicious option from the list below. You have two categories to choose from: home-made recipes or food delivery, the choice is yours. 

2) Digest: 4 Hours to Bed

Finish your chosen meal at least 4 hours before bed to allow your body time to digest and avoid any interference with your sleep quality.  

3) Sleep: 6+ Hours in Bed

Tonight you must aim for at least 6+ hours (the more the better) of quality sleep to recharge your body and minimize stress hormones that can affect your appetite tomorrow.

4) Manifest: Before Bed

As you wind down for the night, take a moment to set a clear intention for a healthier, happier, more vibrant you. Visualize your goals with deep focus and let this intention guide you towards success on your keto journey.
