After you’ve started your Keto Zone journey, there may be times when you find it tough to stay on track with Keto Zone. Sometimes, it’s simply a lack of know-how, preparation, or accountability. Other times, your body simply needs a nudge to get going again.
Here are 10 tried and true tips to stay on track with Keto Zone, derived from successful keto eaters!
Sometimes, too much information can be a bad thing. The internet offers us a lot of free information, but if you feel confused with Keto Zone, a definitive guide is usually more helpful.
The best guide? Dr. Colbert’s Keto Zone book – it will guide you through Keto Zone from the start. Or, you can start with a free option, our Keto Zone 21-Day-Challenge. It’s a great jump-start!”
One of the best things about Keto Zone is that it’s a simple eating plan. There are only 2 directives:
What does this look like in a meal? Eat vegetables, healthy meats, and add a lot of healthy fats.
When entering and maintaining ketosis, your body simply needs more fluid than normal. Drink water throughout the day, and aim for a minimum of 80 ounces per day for women, and 100 ounces per day for men.
Along with adequate hydration, a body in ketosis needs more electrolytes than one not in ketosis.
While entering and eating within the Keto Zone, add Instant Ketones every day. These exogenous ketones will help you stay within ketosis, get back in the Keto Zone, and enjoy the energy and mental-clarity benefits of being in the Keto Zone.
In addition, try adding bone broth. It is a high-sodium, healthy fluid that can help those in the Keto Zone feel great and hydrated.
Sometimes, our bodies readily lose weight. Other times, they lose fat, gain muscle, but do not really show a difference on the scale. If you’re only looking at the number on the scale, it can become very frustrating.
In addition to weight, look at:
If you’re struggling with staying in the Keto Zone, make sure to track your carbohydrate counts. Many successful Keto Zone eaters find that a food diary app is an easy way to track.
The My Fitness Pal App and the Carb Manager App are two favorites. You can track each food, and even set target daily eating goals.
When you know the numbers, you can make sure you’re eating less than or equal to 25 grams of net carbohydrates per day.
A great way to boost weight loss and health is intermittent fasting (1). And a simple way to intermittent fast is to simply not eat between 7 pm and 11 am each day.
To make it (much) easier, you can drink coffee and tea with butter, MCT oil powder, and collagen while fasting. This will keep you satisfied and give you intermittent fasting results.

If you have a family and/or cook for others, you may find family-friendly meals to be a Keto Zone hurdle. But, you can stay on track with Keto Zone eating with a few tweaks to meal planning.
Try making normal meals for your family, and simply omitting the carbohydrate/grain for your own portion. Yours will include vegetables, proteins, and fat. Theirs may have added rice or potatoes.
Preparation is the key to almost any successful Keto Zone eater. To stay on track with Keto Zone, try planning out your meals ahead of time.
In order to keep it from being overwhelming, try just a 3-day plan to start. Figure out what you want to eat for 3 days, and then shop for all the needed ingredients.
As you get better at it, you can extend the time to a full week, start doubling and freezing meals for subsequent weeks and form a meal pattern that makes it much easier and less stressful.
If you don’t like what you’re eating, if there’s no variety, or if you fixate on the foods you “can’t have,” you won’t stay on track with Keto Zone.
Luckily, most any recipe can be turned into a Keto Zone dish, and we have many resources to get you started:
