Should I try to start a Keto diet?
I started reading about keto and its benefits sometime during the mid 2016. This was a quest to find out a weight loss plan that actually worked. Trust me when I say that I have tried a lot of diets in the past. Here are a few issues I found with the calorie-restricted plans.

You can put this in the microwave for a minute if you want to drink the coffee hot.
Some people also add a chunk of butter to the coffee. I did not like the taste.
Breakfast 10 AM
You can skip breakfast if your coffee still feels full (Remember you have added full-fat coconut milk to it!). If you do feel hungry, feel free to eat 2 eggs for breakfast. I always had eggs for breakfast but created variations in how I ate them.
Some days it was an omelet, other days simple boiled eggs. Unleash your creativity here. Use butter or ghee to cook your omelets and half boils.
Lunch 1 PM
Here are some options I tried for lunch.
Snacks 4 PM
You shouldn’t be feeling hungry at this point. However, if you do, the choices are:
