When I first started the ketogenic diet I did lots and lots of research, which I highly recommend for everyone to do. Below you will see all the resources I used and still use to have success with the ketogenic diet. To learn more about my journey, tips, advice, and over 100 EASY low carb recipes check out my first book, Simply Keto.
Learn about how ketosis works, what foods to eat and other helpful advice. I highly recommend reading Keto in a Nutshell and Reddit’s FAQs which are both linked below from Reddit.
Set up your macros by visiting to the Keto Calculator!
Easily calculate your personalized macros here!
(The keto calculator is also linked in the top menu on the homepage, so feel free to revisit it anytime for easy calculations!)
Remember, the macros you calculate will be a starting point. Feel free to make adjustments as needed to find what works best for you!
Food Diary – Tracking Macros
- Sign up/Log in to MyFitnessPal (aka MFP – which is FREE!) You can also use LoseIt, but I really love MFP!
- Once logged in, click on goals, then customize and use your personal macros from the Keto Calculator to update your new goals! While you are logged in to MFP, go to community, and groups and find the Keto group! Having a support system is a HUGE benefit. There are lots of people there willing to help keep you on track and encourage you, so add some Keto friends! You will also get to see what other people are eating and get some great meal ideas. You can change your diary settings to friends only or public if you want to share your food logs. (I HIGHLY recommend sharing your food logs because it holds you accountable!) Log your food every day. I absolutely hated logging at first but after two weeks I got used to it. MFP has a barcode scanner, which makes life so much easier! This will take some getting used to, but you are worth the extra effort!
Support System/First 1-2 weeks
I can’t stress how much building a support system for myself (with other people doing keto) has helped me. You can vent, get recipes, feedback, tips, and get general support. I have lots of friends on MFP and Instagram, and they encourage me every single day! I added most of them from Reddit or the Keto group on MFP. There are often posts from people looking for friends and support. Add some friends, you won’t regret it!
The first 1-2 weeks focus only on keeping your carbs below 20g and meeting your protein goal. Keto is an adjustment to your body and you don’t want to set yourself up for failure from the start. Ease into being on point about staying below your caloric intake. The rule that I follow is carbs below 20g (Net: which is carbs minus fiber, read more about this in FAQs), meet your protein goal (So you’re burning fat and not muscle tissue), and fat to satiety. Some people have mixed feeling about the fat, but I have had success using my fat macro as a max instead of a goal. Remember to be kind to yourself, if you mess up don’t give up, just learn from any mistakes and move forward.
Preparing – Food Shopping
Now that you know what foods will nourish your body while on Keto, it’s time to go food shopping! If everyone in your household is doing Keto then go ahead and donate those carb loaded foods. I personally have a two year old, and my house has lots of carbs, so it was just something I had to overcome. Having the proper Keto friendly foods at your fingertips is a HUGE key for success! I recommend using a food scale and measuring cups so that you are accurate when logging the amount of food you are eating. Before Keto I had no idea what 6oz of chicken looked like. Sometimes you will have to take a guess, but when you’re cooking at home this just makes life easier! I use the Ozeri Pronto Digital Multifunction Kitchen and Food Scale, Elegant Black
*Disclaimer: I am by no means an expert, these are the tips, settings, and resources that have been recommended and helpful for me. Please consult with your personal doctor or dietitian if you have any medical issues or questions about starting Keto. I hope this information will help if you are starting Keto for weight loss!
Have a great day!

Thank you for your website!!! I so enjoy your weekly YouTube videos. You are a great inspiration to me!!! Lmk what is the main thing you have never strayed from? It is your ‘must do’ daily????????????
SuzanneJuly 16, 2015 at 12:45 am
Thank you so much! The main thing I haven’t strayed from is logging and staying on top of my macros. I always stay below 20g net carbs and track everything I eat. Success is found in what you do daily. : )
AnneFebruary 24, 2020 at 3:09 pm
Started yesterday. This is my last hope.
Deb BrownMarch 17, 2020 at 11:27 am
Ann, I’m just starting as well so good luck! Getting those first two weeks in is a challenge indeed. You got this!

Thank you so much!
MarySeptember 14, 2015 at 7:00 pm
Hi, so glad I found your site
You have so much Information
Tracking is key
SuzanneSeptember 15, 2015 at 11:32 pm
Thank you. I totally agree…tracking is a HUGE help!
EvelynSeptember 16, 2015 at 5:17 pm
Hi I have been wanting to start the keto lifestyle and bumped into your YouTube videos. And website. All the information gathered will help me greatly!! Day one is today. Thanks for sharing your story very motivating! !!
SuzanneSeptember 16, 2015 at 5:30 pm
Thank you so much, glad to be able to help! I’m here if you need anything! : )
JenNovember 1, 2015 at 1:25 pm
Hi-under Food Preparing you say your favorites sites for recipes are linked below but I don’t see them. Can you post or point them out if I’m just missing them? Thanks!
SuzanneNovember 9, 2015 at 6:58 am
The main ones I use is ruled.me , ibreatheimhungry.com and cavemanketo.com
KOREANNovember 20, 2015 at 4:24 pm
Your so beautiful . So i will diet haha god bless you
SuzanneNovember 25, 2015 at 7:57 am
Haha, Thank you!
Diana WNovember 23, 2015 at 5:38 pm
Hi Suzanne! I somehow stumbled on this website and became very intrigued. Struggling with my weight forever! (5’4 233 lbs) I used the keto calculator to find my macros and at 20g of net carbs, 85g protein, 118g in fat, total calories at 1486, the result is it will take one year to lose 29 pounds. Is that right? What am I doing wrong That sounds so defeating.
SuzanneNovember 25, 2015 at 7:36 am
Thank you! It truly depends on each person. I think age, sun exposure, and height have a lot to do with it for each person. I definitely have areas with loose skin, but I’m okay with it! I would much rather have loose skin than be overweight!
AmeliaNovember 24, 2015 at 9:24 pm
Hi Suzanne. I have followed you on IG for a while and you look fabulous. Its time I take a diff approach to weight loss so here I am. I have a quick question. The carbs I was allotted was 25 should I stick to that or change it to 20? I want to make sure I am doing this right. Thanks for your help.
SuzanneNovember 25, 2015 at 7:28 am
Thank you! I personally recommend 20g, but I wouldn’t stress over 5g if you prefer 25.
CathyNovember 29, 2015 at 2:13 pm
Im an instagram follower and enjoy watching your progress. I want to give it a try but entered my info in the ketocalculator (i followed your recommended settings). It says i will only lose 2.9 pounds in a month. That seems low. Sort of the same issue diana w, above, is having. For less than 1400 calories a day i would think it would be more weight loss.
SuzanneJanuary 4, 2016 at 6:08 am
Thats basically a minimal from what I’ve seen. My weight loss has always been way more than that chart says.
ValentinaDecember 4, 2015 at 7:33 pm
I’m a little scared about this diet.
I tried it once like a year ago, for 30 days. I lost a lot of weight and was very happy about it, but when I started to eart carbs again I gained all the weight I lost and a few more kgs!
Since I did the keto diet I am stuck on my weight and nothing works for me 🙁 I feel dissapointed.
I want to try it again but I’m really scared. Are there any advises you can give to succeed? Thank you!!
SuzanneJanuary 4, 2016 at 6:01 am
Keto has to be a lifestyle change, its something that you’ll have to incorporate in your day to day or you will gain the weight back. For weight loss to be permanent you need to make livable lifestyle changes and stick to them.
HeatherDecember 16, 2015 at 7:54 pm
Hi Suzanne! I’ve been inspired by all you’ve accomplished. I’m really interested in the keto lifestyle and I’ve tried it recently. The first week I dropped 5 pounds and since then I’ve either gained or maintained every day. I haven’t been tracking my food though. Do you think that would make a difference? I started to think maybe I was retaining water…
SuzanneJanuary 4, 2016 at 5:59 am
Shoot me an email at [email protected] and we can take a look at your macros.
NatachaJanuary 4, 2016 at 9:59 pm
Hi! Do you still use MyFitnessPal? Is it the app on your phone that you use or is it the webpage? I just checked the app and now they want 9.99 for a subscription… So sad. It looks like UnderArmor purchased them. I see sparkspeople looks pretty user friendly. Oh if this isnt a hassle. Can you please post what your food looks like for the day? I think I watched a video like that in the past.
Thanks for your videos!!!
SuzanneJanuary 5, 2016 at 5:44 am
I use MFP, but I just use the free features. You can see most of my food on my instagram @ketokarma or follow me on MFP, ketokarma2015 Thank you!
JulieJanuary 22, 2017 at 12:06 pm
Hi, how to I follow you on MFP Suzanne? I’ve tried to find how to add you as a friend but can’t seem to do it? Thanks to you I’m enjoying the kero lifestyle and the great rewards! Love all that you do xx
SuzanneMay 31, 2017 at 11:46 pm
Hey there. I actually don’t log my food anymore, but you can see most of what I eat on my Instagram page @ketokarma
NatachaJanuary 4, 2016 at 10:01 pm
I started tracking today. I thought I was doing great until I started tracking. Just with breakfast and lunch alone I’m at 40g carbs…. Wasnt doing as well as I thought I was.
SuzanneJanuary 5, 2016 at 5:45 am
There’s a learning curve, so don’t get discouraged. You’ll learn that some foods have higher carbs and you’ll get the hang of it.
TJanuary 21, 2016 at 12:41 am
What do you do if you accidentally go up in carbs from eating out or being at a dinner party during 1 to 2 week induction phase?
SuzanneJanuary 21, 2016 at 3:25 am
There isn’t really anything you would do, except just get right back to under 20g daily.
patricia prattFebruary 1, 2016 at 2:00 am
Hi Suzanne…..what is the name of the scale you use for your weekly weight ins….I really like the way the numbers display. Thank you Pat
SuzanneFebruary 1, 2016 at 8:16 pm
The brand is called Thinner
Katie KFebruary 4, 2016 at 6:20 pm
I am 35 days into Keto and have recently found your blog and social media posts. You look amazing and are such an inspiration! I was wondering if you did anything to combat loose skin along the way or if you had heard of any good methods to use during the weight loss process?
Thank you! Katie
SuzanneFebruary 7, 2016 at 12:23 am
Thank you, Katie! I have done LOTS of research on loose skin and elasticity. Sadly there isn’t much you can do, its all based on sun exposure, genetics, age, and weight loss amount. Surgery is something I will consider at some point, but I don’t know of any products that really work.
catherineAugust 19, 2016 at 2:12 am
Suzanne, do you drink water daily? If so, how much? Do you think that plays into loose skin issues? Thanks!
SuzanneOctober 30, 2016 at 5:30 pm
I do drink water daily, not exactly sure how much, but a good amount. I don’t think it plays into my loose skin. Loose skin is a result from skin elasticity and genetics. My highest weight was likely around 310 and my skin was very stretched out.
melissaFebruary 15, 2016 at 10:55 pm
Hi, I found your site a few weeks ago, it is very inspiring. i started my keto diet with almost 2 day fast. this tuesday night makes 2 weeks on it. My question is, if you go over your calories, will you gain weight still? I lost 2 lbs. the first week. I was kinda disappointed. thought I would lose more….. I am 5’2″ and carry most of my weight from my weist down, sooooooo it is so hard to lose 🙁 ANY suggestions would be great. THANKS
SuzanneFebruary 19, 2016 at 10:14 pm
Hey there. I personally feel that calories in vs calories out will always be a factor in weight loss. I had an issue with overeating, so I know I will always need to keep my caloric intake in check.
SerenaFebruary 23, 2016 at 8:18 pm
Hi there! Questions about MFP. Since it doesn’t calculate net carbs only total carbs, won’t my %s on the macro tab be off? Also, the leafy greens I eat don’t usually add up to net carb daily goal. Things like bok choy, cabbage, and spinach are so high in fiber. In your experience will that become an issue?
SuzanneFebruary 24, 2016 at 10:19 pm
All you have to do is add Fiber to your top tracked macros and then do the math yourself by subtracting your fiber from total carbs.
BarbaraMarch 7, 2016 at 8:00 pm
Which website do you recommend for meal plans and shopping lists for a beginner?
SuzanneMarch 15, 2016 at 9:30 pm
I honestly didn’t use and shopping lists or meal plans. I think its best to learn about the foods that you like, search recipes and make things that work with your time frame and family.
LjGohMarch 28, 2016 at 2:18 am
You look incredible & your Cholesterol results are good too. I am new to Keto so will use yr ketokarma as a guide teacher!!
SuzanneMarch 28, 2016 at 5:48 am
Thank you so much!
BrandyApril 9, 2016 at 4:09 pm
Hi! My name is Brandy, you’ve really inspired me with your progress. I started the ketogenic diet on March 21st and managed to lose 15 pounds! I’m really excited about it but I am at a standstill…do you have any suggestions? Can I eat eggs all day to make sure I get into ketosis?
SuzanneApril 12, 2016 at 5:59 am
Hey there! Congratulations! Stalls do happen, so sometimes you just have to keep on track and stay the course. However if you are in a stall longer than a few weeks you can try to limit things like dairy, artificial sweetners, nuts/nut butters, and or caffeine. You’ll have to just do some trial and error and see is something is slowing you down. I don’t recommend making changes that you don’t plan to stick to, so eating eggs for a day doesn’t do much.
BrandyApril 12, 2016 at 6:01 pm
Great! Thank you! I feel a little confused…I’ve purchased Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cooking and Ruled Me online cookbooks and diet plans. Maria doesn’t recommend coconut flour during weight loss but ruled me does…also, is there such a thing as having too much fat? Today for breakfast I went over and that was just for lunch…Sorry for all the q’s. Thank you for replying. I feel really confused with everything at the moment. I actually gained two pounds since my last post to you.
AngelaMay 3, 2016 at 1:47 am
Hi Suzanne! Just wanted to congratulate you on your success! I started my keto journey back on March 21st, so I’m basically a solid 6 weeks in. The first few weeks were confusing being in some FB groups dedicated to keto, so many opinions and charts, it was overwhelming. Your blog, videos, and instragram have actually been the biggest help. I was wondering your opinion on something, I lost a big bucket of weight in the first 12 days losing 12lbs. While exciting to be sure, i knew it was primarily water weight. So in the last 4 weeks I’ve lost 11.4 lbs which is an average of 2.85 lbs per week. I’m maybe just a little concerned that is too much too fast. Did you encounter this in the beginning weeks? I’m wondering if I should tweak my macros to result in a bit higher caloric level. I know that I’m bound to stall at some point, but I also don’t want to lose too fast either.
SuzanneMay 19, 2016 at 4:52 pm
Hey there. I recommend a 20% deficit for weight loss. It’s normal to lose more at first due to water weight, so it’s likely your weight loss will slow down, and thats perfectly normal!
ChrisOctober 26, 2016 at 1:36 am
oh wow….light bulb moment. I changed the deficit to 20% and now it all makes more sense. Sorry about my long winded question before.
TammieJanuary 13, 2017 at 6:56 pm
I’ve scoured your website for a “day in the life”. Do you have a sample one day eating plan that includes meals and snacks that you eat in a day?
SuzanneMay 31, 2017 at 11:47 pm
I will be glad to film some of those. Most of what I eat is on Instagram.
AngelaJanuary 31, 2017 at 4:35 pm
I’m a 52 -year-old breast cancer survivor gained over 70 pounds in the last 10 years I feel out of control ???? Just seen you now on Instagram and I’m following you ????
thank you so much for your inspirational story,as of today I will start on the same plan wish me good luck!
BeckyMay 28, 2017 at 12:10 pm
Suzanne, just found your site. It’s wonderful. I have been trying to start Keto so many times and have fallen off the wagon. Do you think someone that only has 15lbs to lose can be successful on Keto? I so wish I could get to my goal. But feel like it is impossible.
SuzanneMay 31, 2017 at 11:36 pm
Hey! I think anyone can be successful with keto, some people do it just for health reasons without any weight to lose.
YuliyaJuly 21, 2017 at 1:47 am
You look incredible, congratulations on your success!
I wonder if you ever struggled with protein intake. Being 3 weeks on keto, I have no problems sticking to 20 g of net carbs daily, but having hard time limiting my protein intake to 15 g per meal totaling 45 g a day. I’m trying to control myself, but sometimes I do binge on meat/fish, especially after workout. Have you ever experienced this challenge and if ‘yes’ how did you overcome it?
SuzanneSeptember 22, 2017 at 5:05 pm
Hey there! From time to time I was over on my protein, but if you are working out regularly it’s likely not going to be as big of a deal as it would be for someone who is sedentary. I recommend eating fattier cuts of meat, and pairing with fresh green veggies and a side sauce or butter.
jen pleasantsSeptember 2, 2017 at 5:38 pm
hi i am doing the diet for chronic migraines and am only one week into it and starting to feel better. have you heard of any success w/ keto and migraine that might inspire me?! oh and i love your site and i am so happy for you on your success!! xoxo jen
SuzanneSeptember 22, 2017 at 5:10 pm
I’m so sorry to hear that, I truly hope this lifestyle helps! I don’t know of anyone specifically, but if you ask on Instagram or in the forums on reddit, etc, I’m sure you’ll find someone! Best of luck to you! Thanks!
MandyOctober 10, 2017 at 7:32 pm
Hi there I just found your blog via Daily Mail (via Pinterest) and am loving it! I’m still doing research to start Keto, planning on starting in just a few days, and I love how you put things in such simple terms. Keep it up!
MyiaOctober 20, 2017 at 1:38 am
I have followed you on Facebook and Instagram for a while now. I have attempted to eat keto off and on for 2 years now. I was doing great for about 2 months when I was first diagnosed with insulin resistance. I lost over 20 pounds but as soon as I had a cheat meal for my birthday I completely fell off the wagon and over the next 2 years gained it all back. I am ready to get started again, and am so glad I found your blog. I have 4 young kids, work part time and am working on my Masters degree which leaves very little time for myself…however, I have over 100 pounds to lose, and seeing all of your posts has been very encouraging. I’m ready to make a change for myself and for my family.
SuzanneNovember 8, 2017 at 4:33 pm
Thank you so much! Life can get crazy sometimes, but you have to take care of yourself first before you can really take good care of others. I learned this lesson the hard way myself, but I’m so proud of your effort and I wish you the very best!
SonyaOctober 26, 2017 at 9:35 pm
Hi there, I have been binging on your you tube videos (currently up to week 16) and I cant get enough!
This is my second week on Keto – week 1 I had an amazing loss off 3.1 kg (6.8lbs) and into this second week I am 300 grams up its driving me insane – although perhaps I did have a few too many vodkas and diet sodas 🙁 I really struggle to meet my macros but i always manage to remain under 20 grams of carbs and 5 grams of sugar (I track everything). Can i have some ideas on what you ate to reach your protein because i am just not sure how to up it. Thank you and you are amazing
SuzanneNovember 8, 2017 at 4:32 pm
Hi there, thank you so much! Alcohol can be stalling, so just try to find a balance, remember this has to be livable! For Macros I view protein as a goal to reach, fat to satisfy and carbs as a max. I generally didn’t have issues getting enough protein as I usually have chicken or steak or eggs, etc.
ISABELLA VILAZA DALLAGODecember 9, 2017 at 1:32 am
Hi… you are such an inspiration. I love your blog and I would love to read all of your posts in order. (I am a nerd). Is it possible that you include an “Archive” section in your blog. Thank you very much. Love from Chile.
SuzanneDecember 10, 2017 at 5:33 pm
I will be sure to consider that! Thank you so much for your feedback! Lots of love to you!
SandyFebruary 13, 2018 at 7:41 pm
Just got your book (awesome by the way!) and am surfing your Instagram pics – and am curious about one thing. Did you start out strict and then add in some of the more sweet treats and things made with gooddeesmix, etc? Or did you allow yourself stuff with artificial sweeteners from the start as long as you were within your macros? Not criticizing – just curious if you were successful eating that from the beginning – thanks!
Lisa BedardFebruary 17, 2018 at 4:35 pm
After being keto for a month now and losing 15 lbs I find that I’m really not as hungry and typically can have my keto coffee and sometimes not be hungry til dinner time…my weight loss has stalled for a week now and I’m just wondering if not forcing myself to eat three meals a day and reaching my calorie macro is to blame? Did you always eat 3 meals a day and meet your calories. I never get even close to my carb max. Just wondering if I’m hindering myself by not eating enough because of my satiety during the day? Congrats on your success and thanks in advance
MarleahMarch 2, 2018 at 7:19 am
Hi, I was wondering what you suggest the carbs be for someone who is nursing. Also, I love your website and Instagram!!!
SuzanneApril 10, 2018 at 4:02 am
Check with your pediatrician but I would personally hold off on diet changes while nurses due to possibly causing a decrease in milk production. Thank you so much!
LindsayMarch 2, 2018 at 4:54 pm
Hi, I am sorry, I am sure you answer this question somewhere but I am a little confused. In the macro calculator, it tells me I can have 15g of carbs per day. This is net carbs, correct?
In the Fitness Pal app, does it only calculate total carbs? For example, it says I have consumed 16 grams of carbs but I have only had cheese, eggs, avocado, mushrooms, etc. today
Thanks for the help!
SanaApril 15, 2018 at 11:35 am
I think it most likely calculates total carbs! Try to find out the amount of fiber (in grams) in whatever you eat and subtract that from your total carbs to get your net carbs! 🙂 I think MyFitnessPal has a way to set fiber as one of the macros as well so that the amount of fiber you eat can be calculated for you, but double make sure on that, I’m not too sure. All the best!
Tracy LloydMarch 9, 2018 at 10:40 pm
Hi Suzanne I’m writing from Sydney, Australia. I have just received your book in the mail and I just wanted to tell you what a beautiful book it is? So well done! I have started the keto journey in January but have been researching on finding the best balance and info that I can sustain. There is a little conflicting info out there but your macro calculator and comments about eating enough protein and fats just to satiety make absolute sense! Thank you so much and will be looking forward to the journey cooking your yummy & easy recipes! Love Tracy????
AurelioApril 23, 2018 at 7:06 pm
Thanks for finally talking about >How to get started on the
ketogenic diet – everything you need to know! <Loved it!
JenniferMay 10, 2018 at 12:50 am
Does your keto calculator show net carbs or total carb?
SuzanneMay 10, 2018 at 5:49 pm
That is a personal choice, but I track net.
AudreyMay 24, 2018 at 4:07 am
You’re such an inspiration to many! I have a question about macros. Another keto website I have looked into says protein amounts for a woman should be 50-70g a day- 70g being for active women. The calculator on your site suggests I should do 80g, and a little over 1400 calories. Right now I have been doing 50-55g protein, under 10g net carbs, 100g fat, and between 1200-1300 calories. I’m not losing very much, and I am very overweight for my age and height. Thank you for any help and guidance you can provide me. I am stuck and am wondering if I am doing anything wrong. I have been tracking everything, cut out dairy/cheese, limited nuts, never cheated, and very strict keto. Thanks again for your help!!
susanJanuary 15, 2019 at 11:59 pm
Love your book! Thanks for the inspiration!! I’m 2.5 weeks in and lost 7,5 lbs. Starting back to my 5 mile walking tomorrow. Heading out on a Caribbean cruise next week and bringing your book along to keep me focused and choose foods wisely. They have a nice gym and jogging/walking path around the ship that I will utilize. I can do this!!
Stephanie M FinchSeptember 20, 2019 at 8:51 pm
Hi! I had been contemplating the Keto diet for awhile now. My future MIL told me about her experience (Lost 40 lb in 6 months!) and that convinced me. I bought your book and a digital kitchen scale. Reading your story was like I was reading my own!!! Today is my 5th day. My cravings for sugar are horrible!! How long does it usually take to overcome this? I want a Twinkie sooo bad right now! Lol
daNovember 12, 2019 at 7:47 pm
I really love vegetables, but they seem to have a lot of carbs, any tips?
SuzanneDecember 11, 2019 at 6:28 pm
Generally it’s just best to stay away from starchy veggies (or eat them in moderation, like a carrot in a stew). I mostly stick to eating green cruciferous veggies and count their net carbs.
LuzMarch 22, 2021 at 2:30 pm
HI Suzanne I really loved your book and all what you shared in it!
I was wondering, whether you knew or not about Collagen peptides messing with the state of ketosis… I do want to continue taking them, but not if they will mess with all the effort on starting a Keto lifestyle
Thank you again!
SuzanneMarch 23, 2021 at 5:18 am
Hey there. I personally take collagen peptides and have no issues – most brands should be a ok!
