I like the thought of KETO since you can have a small amount of certain fruit and veg.

Anyone with any tips?

These are the basics and deciding what type of keto you want to do. The Facebook groups called Keto UK community and Easy Keto UK are good to join. I’d start off by using Carb manager or Fitness Pal to track in the beginning. Use a carb calculator to decide your protein, fat and calorie intake but carbs should be under 20g per day

Thanks! Not on FB but will download the app - is it My Fitness Pal?

That’s the one- you can set the carbs manually on there without the premium membership. Drink loads of water! I have found Keto makes me very thirsty

Cat I'm so grateful to you. Thanks for your advice! thanks

I've downloaded a KETO app as well - am having conflicted messages re mushroom. Does anyone know what the carbs are for mushrooms? Also, I read online that to work out your carbs, you have to minus fibre - am confused as to whether this is already done in many of these apps/recipes.

Carbs in the UK already have fibre deducted. When you use any app to look up the carb content of food- put the name of the supermarket before it (e.g. Tesco mushrooms). Mushrooms are great for Keto

These books are great for recipes

Thanks again Cat. Have stocked up in supermarket and am starting tomorrow. DH dusting off the bathroom scales and am weighing tomorrow morning (just as a starting comparison). I'll get those books tomorrow - The Works isn't far from work.

Can anyone suggest a free app that helps
Track KETO? I downloaded one and after just a day, it's telling me to ugrade.

Not really the right place - this is a specific low carb plan we're following. You're probably better off posting in the low carb topic for keto ideas.

Ok, thanks BIWI.
