Keto Research Expert Dr. Ryan Lowery’s Top Tips to Being Successful With a Ketogenic Diet 

For most people, the ketogenic diet is just a low-carb, high-fat diet; however, according to the world renown keto research expert Dr. Ryan Lowery, there are immense benefits the majority of people are not even aware of.  Much of this information can be found in the Ketogenic Bible, which is a must-have book authored by Dr. Lowery and Dr. Jacob Wilson. In this article, I am going to let you in on a secret – Dr. Ryan’s top tips to being successful with a ketogenic diet, but first, let me introduce him. 

Who is Dr. Ryan Lowery? 

As CEO of Ketogenic.com, Dr. Ryan Lowery, Ph.D., is both an entrepreneur and a leading expert in the health, nutrition, and fitness industries. He is also a celebrated baseball champion having won the 2014 national championship. Ryan Lowery is heavily focused on the impact of a ketogenic diet and exogenous ketones on performance, cognitive function, and longevity. Ryan Lowery is the recipient of several coveted awards, including the National AAHPERD Exercise Science Major of the Year Award. He is a proven achiever, and now dedicates most of his time to help you live happily and healthily ever after.

Dr. Ryan Lowery’s top 5 tips to being successful with a Ketogenic diet

1. Start With Some Baseline Knowledge

Don’t go in without a plan. You need to understand what a well-formulated ketogenic diet looks like and the importance of things like electrolytes, hydration, etc. when starting a ketogenic diet. This is, however, not meant to scare you. Keto is definitely the way to go, but you need to understand the basics first.  Websites and resources like www.ketogenic.com are a great place to start.  Don’t get overwhelmed with information but build your foundation before starting.  

2. Getting Past the Adaptation Period

Often referred to as the keto-flu, the adaptation period will come and go. Think about it this way – your body has been primarily running off of glucose/carbohydrates for 30, 40, 50, 60, etc years.  It’s going to need some time to adapt to using fat/ketones as fuel so give yourself some time to go through that adaptation. Making sure you are bumping up your sodium, potassium, and magnesium intake during this period will help you sail through your first few days/weeks of getting accustomed to the new lifestyle.

3. Do Not Fear FAT

For decades we’ve been taught that fat was the enemy.  We were sadly mistaken with this simplistic statement. High amounts of fat COMBINED with high amounts of carbohydrates (think fast food) are what the issue was.  Fat itself is extremely important for everything from brain function to hormone levels. Getting in a mixture of fats can be beneficial on a ketogenic diet as long as carbohydrates are low.  Avocados and fat is back! 

4. Stick to Whole Foods as Much as Possible 

Early on, people try to get fancy with it; they run to the store and buy numerous snacks and supplements labeled as “keto”. Start with the foundations first. Whether you are vegan keto, carnivore keto, or just a traditional ketogenic dieter, start simple and build up from there. Stick to things like eggs, avocados, fattier cuts of meat, etc.  That is how you turn a diet into a lifestyle. 

5. Get Creative

A ketogenic diet is not meant to imprison you. Although the goal is to stick to whole foods as much as possible, you can get creative and enjoy some nice, unique options as well. Anything you enjoy, that you may think is not available on a ketogenic diet, is possible. From pasta to bread to crackers and cookies – there are always low carbohydrate alternatives.

What the Future Looks Like for Dr. Ryan Lowery

There is so much that Dr. Ryan is looking into. This translates to a bright and better tomorrow for all who live the ketogenic lifestyle. There are two major areas that Dr. Ryan is looking to continue working on. The first is offering himself as an expert and trusted resource for nutrition, particularly the ketogenic diet and all of its potential areas beyond body composition, like its application against Alzheimers and Parkinsons. The second is advancing the #makepositivitylouder conversation on a daily basis, towards the realization of a paradigm shift from close-mindedness and negativity to perspective and positivity.  Dr. Ryan’s focus is expanding internationally to help startups in the health and wellness space grow and make an impact. There is life beyond the money, and that is what each one of us should look into. If you are new to the ketogenic diet or are considering taking it up, Ryan Lowery’s resources are just what you need to make the best out of it.
