2. Cutting Carbohydrates

Reducing the consumption of carbs is the prime focus of a keto diet. Aim to reduce your carb intake to no more than 15 to 30 grams per day or five to 10% of your total caloric count. Cut out bread and other foods made from grains, as well as apples, oranges, and other high-sugar fruits, and forgo using sugar or products containing sugar. Swap carb-heavy vegetables such as potatoes for lower carb options like bell peppers, zucchini, and spinach.
