12 Keto Diet Blogs to Watch in 2020

These blogs are going to be your saving grace when you’re tired of Googling recipes and dreaming of pizza.

Beginning a new weight loss diet is not always a simple transition. And the ketogenic diet — a trendy low-carb, high-fat plan that may produce quick results — is no exception.

One of the biggest hurdles of going keto is putting and keeping your body in ketosis. Ketosis is a natural metabolic state that tricks your body into burning fat instead of carbs for fuel (when it doesn’t have enough carbs). So, naturally, to achieve ketosis, you’ll have to say goodbye to most carbohydrates and hello to fat — and lots of it.

RELATED: 8 Steps Beginners Should Take Before Trying the Keto Diet

It depends on which version of keto you’re doing, but generally, you’ll aim to get 5 to 10 percent of your total calories from carbs on the diet. The goal is to consume only 20 to 50 grams (g) of net carbs per day — or less than the equivalent of ½ cup of long-grain brown rice, which contains at least 26 g of total carbs, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). Net carbs, which are an unofficial term, are defined as total carbs minus fiber and sugar alcohols, according to the website for the Atkins diet, another low-carb plan. For most people, going that low won’t be easy: The typical American woman over age 20 gets nearly 50 percent of her calories from carbs, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). For example, on a 1,400-calorie diet, this would be equivalent to about 175 g of carbs daily.

Meanwhile, you’ll need to reach for lots of healthy high-fat foods, like fatty fish, avocado, olive oil, nuts, and eggs. Butter, bacon, and cheese are also allowed, though these are among the less-healthy choices for fat. The goal is to get about 60 to 80 percent of your daily calories from fats overall.

That’s just part of the struggle when following keto. You’ll likely also see various side effects especially in the first few weeks, such as headaches, fatigue, and drowsiness — all signs of the so-called keto flu.

But as any keto diet beginner knows, the possibility of losing weight may be worth enduring temporary physical aches and carb cravings (as long as you’ve cleared trying the diet with your doctor, that is).

Even so, it’s apparent that what a keto dieter really needs is resourceful information, and tons of encouragement. “One reason why the keto diet has continued to be popular is that it fosters a sense of community,” says Melissa Mitri, RD, owner of Melissa Mitri Nutrition in Milford, Connecticut. Keto blogs can help you feel as if you’re supported in the diet, which you need since it can be restrictive and there are many hurdles to overcome when starting. One thing to keep in mind, says Mitri, is that these blogs are limited in that the authors are not nutrition experts but are speaking from their own experience. “Remember that everyone is different and there is no one diet that works for everyone,” she says.

That’s good perspective. While it seems as if everyone is on the keto diet, a low-carb, high-fat plan isn’t necessarily better than another diet for weight loss or managing type 2 diabetes, notes a review published in the September-October 2019 issue of the Journal of Clinical Lipidology. Because the keto diet limits or eliminates foods known to be healthy and heart protective (for example, beans, whole grains, and most fruit) and encourages those that can increase cardiovascular risks (red meat, for one), the authors recommend that people work closely with their healthcare team when following keto.

Many people jump into keto because they’ve seen friends and loved ones have rousing success on the diet. Indeed, a review of research shows that one iteration of keto, a very low-calorie plan, helped overweight and obese adults lose an average of 22 pounds in four weeks or less, per a November 2019 issue in Reviews in Endocrine and Metabolic Disorders. Still, not everyone is in favor of the diet going mainstream. Medical experts in the July 2019 edition of JAMA cautioned that the diet isn’t a slam-dunk fix for obesity or type 2 diabetes — and more research is needed to examine the long-term health implications.

Making an informed choice, rather than riding the keto trend, is important to ensure that you start safely and get the most out of the diet. The blogs below are exemplars in the keto category. Whether you’re struggling with exercise motivation, diet logistics, or looking for out-of-the-box keto recipes, you can be sure to find all of that and more here.

My Keto Diet Results

0 Flares Filament.io 0 Flares ×

I hope, you’re following me on Instagram, because if you’re not, you’re missing out on a whole lot of hilarity, snark, exclusive first look at my recipes, and a healthy dose of my adorable daughter, Jessica.

Seriously, go follow me!

If you have been following me, then you’ll know that a couple of weeks ago I wrapped up my #60daysketo experiment.

I documented the whole journey, from dropping weight very quickly in the first two weeks, to being sidelined on day 18 by emergency surgery to take my appendix out, my first carb-up, and finally, my results from it.

Of course, if you haven’t been following along, those posts are all still there, so feel free to scroll back and take a peek. Or, just search the hashtag #60daysketo to see everything I ate and did!

I’m going to dive into tons of into about the why+how of my Ketogenic Experiment, but first I’m sure you wondering:

What were my results on a Ketogenic Diet?

I’m so glad you asked, because I’m super excited to share them with you!

The picture on the left is after 75 days on Keto (I was very busy when the 60 days ended) and the picture on the right was before I began the experiment:

So here’s the thing: the pictures obviously speak for themselves, even though I hated having my picture taken before going Keto, so I don’t have a ton of great ones to compare the “afters” to.

The state of my midsection.

The shape of my thighs.

My face….

My arms.

Just so many things, and even things you can see like not sleeping well, lacking energy, not much mental focus. I could go on, and on, and on.

But, there are some pretty compelling stats about my weight and measurements that seal the deal that Keto was so, so good for me:

I lost, in 60 days:

  • 23 pounds
  • 2.25 inches on each arm
  • 3 inches on my waist
  • 5.5 inches on my pooch
  • 3.5 inches on my hips
  • 1.75 inches on each thigh
  • 1.5 inches on each calf

Ya’ll, I lost more than 20 inches in 60 days without my energy levels dropping, losing sleep, my hair falling out, or even drinking any of those magic pills or potions that so many people are hawking on Instagram.

Yeah, we all KNOW those don’t work…….

My Keto Plan:

I used the Ketogains Macro Calculator to come up with my daily macros. Here was my starting plan:

  • 1600 calories/day
  • 116 g protein
  • 25 net carbs
  • 113 grams fat

These numbers were designed to help me lose fat by taking in to account my weight, body fat percentage, activity level, and exercise amount each day.

However, a few weeks in, my energy levels started falling, so I adjusted my calories and macros for increased activity (maybe I wasn’t as sedentary as I thought) and used these macros for the remainder of the experiment:

  • 1950 calories/day
  • 146 g protein
  • 25 net carbs
  • 121 g fat

I started feeling much better, albeit a bit full at the end of the day, but my body seemed MUCH happier with these numbers.

Why Keto? (Not THM, Low Carb, Carb Cycling, Paleo, etc?)

After doing Trim Healthy Mama for almost 2 years, I started noticing some patterns in my eating, my energy levels, and even my mental focus.

And to be honest, I was burnt out making sure that each meal fell into an E, S, or FP. I am a numbers person, so I would put all the foods into My Fitness Pal and make sure that I wasn’t eating too many carbs, too much fat, and that I was eating enough protein.

The other big factor in deciding to do Keto for 60 days was noticing how I felt doing Trim Healthy Mama (some people call it carb cycling). When I ate lots of healthy fats, especially in the morning I felt amazing. My mental focus was amazing and I felt bulletproof. Often, I would eat an E lunch with carbs and very little fat, which, while perfectly in line with THM guidelines, left me feeling mentally foggy, tired, and lethargic.

I was eating really clean, complex carbs, but I just couldn’t deal with the energy levels dropping.

So, I decided to switch it up, and put fats and protein at the center of my lunches, trying out E meals for breakfast, lunches, or just throwing in an E snack every day.

And ya know what happened?

Every time, no matter how careful or when I timed my E meal, my energy flagged and my brain got foggy.

So a lot of this was just noticing how my body treated all sort of different carbs vs. fats.

The final straw was realizing my cravings were out of control. I was fueling my body really well, but still being able to stress eat THM treats was not a healthy habit.

So I took on the 60 Day Keto Challenge to help with all of these problems.

What is a Ketogenic Diet?

I want to put a little blurb in here about what a Ketogenic diet (known as Keto) is, in case you’re not familiar. If you are, feel free to skip this little Keto 101, and skip down to see what I ate.

A Ketogenic diet is one that is high in healthy fats and proteins, and extremely low in carbohydrates. Typically, it takes around 100g of carbohydrates per day to keep up with the average person’s brain and organ function. When you eat between 20-50 g of net carbohydrates (total carbohydrates – fiber) your body has to switch over to using fat to fuel itself instead of carbohydrates. This process is called Ketosis, and it’s a perfectly natural state of humans to exist in.

Typically, it takes between 3-7 days for Ketosis to kick in, but once it does, most people on Keto notice their energy levels rapidly increasing, cravings diminishing, and of course, they start to rapidly lose body fat.

I did, that’s for sure!

Even better, Ketogenic diets have been linked with helping to prevent or drastically reduce the symptoms of diabetes, cancer, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy and more.

And not once did I feel deprived on Keto.

What did I eat on Keto?

The best part about Keto?

Eating All. The. Food.

Seriously, here are some of the foods I ate:

  • Steak with Zoodles and Cream Sauce
  • Fathead Bagels with Cream Cheese
  • Butterfinger Fat Bombs
  • Keto McGriddles
  • Giant Chef Salads with Bacon, Eggs, lots, of meat, cheese, and ranch dressing
  • Ketologie Chocolate Shakes (YUM!) (10% off your first order through my link)
  • Brownies with Ice Cream
  • Pork Rinds with Ranch & Guacamole
  • Prime Rib with Asparagus
  • Jimmy John’s Unwiches
  • Bulletproof Coffee with Brain Brew MCT Oil
  • Drop an F-Bomb Nut Butter Packs
  • 90-Second Mug Cinnamon Roll FatBomb
  • Cheeseburger Salads

I was introduced to many new foods…

And developed some of my favorite recipes, which I’ve linked to above!

Over all, I felt great, lost more than 20 inches, and 23 pounds in 75 days of doing Keto.

My mental focus increased, I started sleeping better, I had energy to keep up with my daughter, and not ONCE did I feel deprived.

From here, my plan it to keep up with Keto, but as I get close to my body fat % goals, to start incorporating some carbs before my workout because I want to build more muscle.

My body is an experiment, but my 60 Days Keto Experiment was a huge success!

Hi guys!

We’re Chad and Karly – high school sweethearts with a love for food (and each other, still, even after almost 20 years).

Karly has been a food blogger over at Buns In My Oven since before it was cool to be a food blogger, way back in 2008. (Quick question – has it ever been cool to be a food blogger or are we just dreaming?) She started out creating simple recipes for buys moms and Buns In My Oven quickly grew into a trusted resource for millions of people every month. Karly is the Recipe Creator, Picture Taker, and Writer in this little collaboration.

Chad has been working in the ethanol industry since 2008. He likes to geek out about the process and is a bit of a magician when it comes to fixing the problems in an ethanol plant. Social media life is new for him and he just published one of his first Facebook posts a couple of months ago. This should be fun. Chad is the Chief Recipe Tester, Tech Guru, and Head Business-y Guy behind this blog.

Together, they’ve added on a few pounds over time and when Karly started experimenting with a low carb diet, it quickly became obvious that this was the lifestyle made for them. Butter, bacon, and cheese are always what draw people in, but they also enjoy the freedom that living a keto lifestyle gives them. It’s fairly simple to eat out, travel, and cook low carb recipes without feeling deprived.

This blog is a place for Chad and Karly to share their passion for that low carb life with all of you.

We’re so glad you’re here for the ride.

Get in contact at [email protected]!

She believes that “beauty starts on the inside, and it’s never too late to be, who you want to be.”

Her blog is about “Real food and natural beauty.”

Visitors will find a broad range of recipes in categories like keto, low carb, and primal paleo.

Diet help is also on the menu, along with DIY skin care and natural remedies.

Stacey offers readers a free e-book of low-carb, gluten-free bread recipes. Her paleo English muffin recipe video is one of her most popular videos. Also on offer: Her Easy Low Carb Snack Recipe Book.

If you’re thinking of launching a food blog, you’ll want to check out Stacey’s tips on using your smartphone to make recipe videos.

Kalyn Denny, Kalyn’s Kitchen


After Kalyn Denny lost over 40 pounds on the South Beach diet she started getting requests from friends for her recipes. Keeping up with all those emails was a struggle.

That’s when her brother said “Maybe you should just put your recipes on a blog.”

Kalyn’s launched her blog in 2005 and it quickly expanded to cover a number of diet types: low-carb, Whole 30, meatless, vegan, gluten-free, low-glycemic, keto, and dairy-free.

Thirteen years later, Kalyn has left her salaried job and is now a full-time food blogger.

Kalyn’s Kitchen is nicely organized. Visitors can search recipes by diet type, or via helpful categories like “Can Freeze,” “Kid Friendly,” “Spiralizer,” “Air Fryer,” “Slow Cooker” and “Easy to Cook.”

It’s been quite a journey from “accidentally” becoming a food blogger (as Kalyn likes to put it), to speaking at conferences like SXSW Interactive and Blogher, and appearing in the Salt Lake Tribune, Womens’ World, and Reader’s Digest.

Q&A With the Keto Blogging Experts

We asked these blogging experts the same five questions.

There’s nothing like learning from experience, and their willingness to share theirs provides a unique opportunity to learn what makes for a successful blog.

Why did you start blogging?

Antya Markin, Queen Keto

My home-made keto recipes seemed to be a hit with everyone and over time I was encouraged to share them with the world.

Vivica Menegaz, The Nourished Caveman

I needed to create a resource for recipes that I could send to the patients of the nutrition practice I was working for.

As I could not find the right recipes I decided to start creating my own.

Lezlee Parrish, The Lazy Keto

I had been doing Keto for about 6 months and was compiling a lot of recipes and thought it might be helpful to share them with others doing keto!

So I started an Instagram page and then later I created my website.

Luis Villasensor, Ketogains

Having a resource to inform people on how to do a proper keto diet for body recomposition.

Chris Bair, Keto Chow

Mostly I was just looking for a way to share my experience trying out nutritionally complete “future foods” – that later morphed into documenting my experience with a ketogenic diet.

Libby, Ditch the Carbs

It began purely as a hobby so I could collect all my low-carb family recipes in one place.

I then started writing articles to summarize the research I had done into why low-carb was such an effective way to prevent the big 3 – obesity, type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.

Elizabeth McDowell, Meat Free Keto

In 2012, there were very few other people eating the way I was eating (veg keto) and so I wanted to share my recipes and experiences.

Kyndra Holley, Peace, Love and Low Carb

It first started as a hobby, born out of a need to lose weight. I started recreating all of my favorite dishes into low carb versions and documenting it. From there, it sort of took on a life of its own and turned into a passion-driven career.

Lisa MarcAurele, Low Carb Yum

I was looking to lose weight with a low carb diet and wanted a way to keep track of recipes I was making as well as my progress.

Kim, Low Carb Maven

There weren’t many recipes available when I started my low carb lifestyle, so I did a lot of experimenting.

I wanted to share the low carb recipes I was developing at home for my family — finding ways to reinvent old favorites and creating new ones.

We were enjoying the food and I hoped others would, too.

Megan Ellam, Mad Creations

I have always had a passion for recipe developing and missed working in an environment that allowed me to do that.

So I started blogging and sharing my recipes with as many as people as I can

Dr. Adam Nally, DocMuscles

Enjoyment of writing; need to provide a space for people to find answers to medical questions.

Cristina Curp, The Castaway Kitchen

A need to create food art and share it with others.

Stacey Crawford, Beauty and the Foodie

I started blogging on the suggestion of my 7-year-old son as a way to share my recipes online for people that also have a restrictive diet or food allergies like I do.

Ryan Lowery, Ketogenic

Our goal was to provide information and tools for people to live a ketogenic lifestyle.

We saw there was a desperate need to get more of this information out to the world and we wanted a great platform to share it on.

Elviira Krebber, Low Carb, So Simple

When I found help from a gluten-free, sugar-free low-carb lifestyle, I didn’t find simple enough recipes so I had to develop everything from scratch.

I’m a very impatient person so reading long ingredient lists and making complex recipes was painful.

At some point, my husband suggested I could start blogging so that other people would also benefit from my recipes.

In 2012, I started my Low-Carb, So Simple blog where I have been sharing recipes with 5 ingredients or less. I love challenges and keeping the recipes simple but delicious is challenging but very rewarding.

Kalyn Denny, Kalyn’s Kitchen

I started blogging when I had lost over 40 pounds and people were asking for my recipes.

It soon became a pain to send them by e-mail, and then one day my brother said, “You should just put those recipes on a blog!”

Is 50 the new 30? Vivica Menegaz, (left) one year shy of 50, and Antya Markin, photographed in 2016 at 53. Both make a natural appeal for their food philosophies, blogs, and books.

What’s your secret to staying motivated & inspired long term?

Kyndra Holley, Peace, Love and Low Carb

I started in 2011 and I just never gave up. I took a giant leap of faith and quit my job in 2011 to do it full time.

I definitely wasn’t ready financially or emotionally, but I just knew that I had to keep going.

It took literal blood, sweat, and tears to get Peace, Love, and Low Carb where it is today. I just refused to give up, no matter how hard things got.

It turned out to be the best decision I have ever made.

Stacey Crawford, Beauty and the Foodie

I enjoyed blogging as a creative hobby at first and never expected to make an income from it.

I found that I loved it even more than my day job and just kept learning as much as I could about every aspect of it.

To motivate myself, I told myself that once I could consistently earn more on my blog than my day job income, I would quit my day job. I retired from my day job last year.

I stay motivated by continuing to learn new skills and hone older skills. The job is always changing and never gets boring.

Ryan Lowery, Ketogenic

It boils down to the community.

Developing content isn’t easy. We spend hours and hours creating infographics, writing articles, and creating video content each week.

However, every story we hear and all of the feedback we get back from people on how this information has helped change their life — that what makes us keep going.

Vivica Menegaz, The Nourished Caveman

My nutrition practice and the needs of my patients.

Luis Villasensor, Ketogains

The results from our clients and members.

Libby, Ditch the Carbs

I receive emails every single day from readers who have transformed their life through low-carb nutrition.

I have helped more people in the last 4 years regain their health via my website than in the last 25 years as a pharmacist dispensing their medication.

I am inspired each and every day by the people in my free support group who completely turn their life around.

There are even two babies who were born to women who were told they were infertile because of hormonal issues, which were resolved when they addressed their insulin resistance (caused by a high-carb diet).

Antya Markin, Queen Keto

The keto lifestyle can be simple. Think meat, fish, cheese, eggs, fibrous veggies, some fruit.

But most people miss the delicious, albeit terrible, foods they used to eat, so I set about recreating classic dishes that have been healthified and low-carbified, such as pasta, gnocchi, pizza, cakes, biscuits, etc.

I have an Italian heritage, so many of my re-inventions are based on high-end patisserie and real Italian traditional foods.

There are many keto recipe bloggers out there, but I guess I bring a different keto experience to discerning readers who want more than the usual bacon poppers or zoodles with marinara sauce.

Lisa MarcAurele, Low Carb Yum

I actually stopped blogging a couple years after I started the sugarfreelowcarbrecipes.com website (which is what Low Carb Yum started out as).

Then, a couple years later, I realized that my posts were being shared and helping a lot of people make it through a low carb lifestyle.

So what motivates me to keep it going is the feedback from the audience on how they have improved their health with the help of my blog.

Kalyn Denny, Kalyn’s Kitchen

One of the things that inspires me most is the frequent comments and e-mails I get from readers who tell me they are losing weight using my recipes.

That kind of communication always makes my day and inspires me to keep going!

Elizabeth McDowell, Meat Free Keto

The veg keto community is absolutely amazing. Every kind email, comment, direct message or random shout-out made me realize how many people are actually using these recipes and really keeps me motivated and inspired.

Plus, it’s food and health, which are two of my favorite subjects.

Megan Ellam, Mad Creations

I am very passionate about the ketogenic lifestyle and really it is my followers that help keep me motivated.

Without their support and feedback, it would be a lot harder

Kim, Low Carb Maven

I find motivation in my love to cook and create in the kitchen, but I have to do it spontaneously or it isn’t fun.

Many bloggers have their editorial calendars planned months in advance. I find planning stifles me. I need to wing-it or it feels like a job.

I’m inspired by regional cuisine, my mother’s recipes, and my taste buds.

Cristina Curp, The Castaway Kitchen

I truly stand behind what I do. Cooking, recipe writing they are my hobbies, but helping people is my passion.

Finding my voice and really connecting with others and inspiring them is what has kept me going.

Lezlee Parrish, The Lazy Keto

Honestly, it’s the community that keeps me going. Everyone is so supportive of one another and it’s just so inspiring to me.

Elviira Krebber, Low Carb, So Simple

I think the simple answer is that I just love blogging so much!

I love to develop recipes, write text and shoot photos & videos. It also makes me happy and inspired that people like my recipes so much.

Dr. Adam Nally, DocMuscles

Engagement with audience

Chris Bair, Keto Chow

Dunno, I just keep posting whatever new and interesting comes along!

Hot! Seven of Chris’s Keto Chow flavors are sold out. Bookmark our free Blogger’s Guide to Selling Online to get information on how to sell your own products online.

What do you think had the biggest impact on making your blog a success?

Lezlee Parrish, The Lazy Keto

Probably the simplicity of my recipes.

I hate finding a good meal idea online only to find it requires 10+ ingredients and some you may have never even heard of! So I strive to make my recipes as simple as possible. Hence, The Lazy Keto!

Keto doesn’t have to be difficult to be a success.

Luis Villasensor, Ketogains

Keeping it evidence and science-based.

Chris Bair, Keto Chow

Well, it was pretty small until I started using my blog to document product development of Keto Chow. It’s something I’m passionate about so it just kinda happened organically.

Kim, Low Carb Maven

I can’t attribute my success to any one thing. I think that persistence (publishing regularly), continuing to improve (photography, styling, writing, SEO), and befriending bloggers in my niche have all contributed greatly.

Antya Markin, Queen Keto

Number 1: PASSION!. Number 2: TIME!

A lot of time was needed to start the blog site from scratch, especially as I had no prior web knowledge or help from anyone.

Nowadays most of my time is devoted to my recipe development, sourcing new low-carb products, testing, etc. etc.

I work totally on my own and do absolutely everything, including site maintenance and photography.

It can be overwhelming at times. I couldn’t do any of it if I had a ‘day’ job. My keto-husband has got used to it – he loves being my initial tester.

Kyndra Holley, Peace, Love and Low Carb

Being authentic and genuine with my readers. I believe that transparency is the key to connection.

Instead of only sharing the highlight reel of my life and weight loss journey, I shared the good, the bad, and the ugly, in an attempt to help people feel less alone.

Being candid and staying true to my integrity, mission, vision, and values, has been key.

Libby, Ditch the Carbs

Integrity. I refuse sponsored posts so I can remain independent and trusted.

This was a difficult financial decision to make, but I believe my reputation is key to my amazing readers placing their trust in me.

Megan Ellam, Mad Creations

Consistency and determination. I plan each week with everything from marketing, recipes, social media and track my conversions to see what works well and what doesn’t.

Lisa MarcAurele, Low Carb Yum

The popularity of the keto diet in recent years has certainly had the biggest impact on the success of Low Carb Yum. And, all the success stories of my readers in their weight loss journeys has certainly kept the momentum of the site going.

Elizabeth McDowell, Meat Free Keto

I think perseverance is the main thing. I’ve been blogging for over 6 years now but it definitely took some time to get going.

Dr. Adam Nally, DocMuscles

Consistency providing answers.

Cristina Curp, The Castaway Kitchen

Connecting with like-minded bloggers and brands. It’s really hard to grow your audience without the help of friends.

Fostering authentic relationships with brands and bloggers, supporting each other. Teamwork makes the dream work.

Stacey Crawford, Beauty and the Foodie

I think that continually learning and not being afraid to fail at new projects, and being willing to fail at something until you get better at it has been the key to success.

Ryan Lowery, Ketogenic

Being authentic and transparent. Our goal is to protect and help this community as much as possible.

We haven’t sold anything in three years. Our goal is to help foster this conversation and bring people together.

The ketogenic community has always been supportive and the Ketogenic.com team feeds off of that energy

Vivica Menegaz, The Nourished Caveman

Networking with other bloggers in my niche, bloggers are amazingly talented and resourceful people.

Elviira Krebber, Low Carb, So Simple

Decidation. Taking the trouble. Walking the walk.

The readers know that they get very carefully developed and high-quality recipes when they browse my blog.

It’s a whole experience with all those mouth-watering photos, clear instructions, text, and videos.

Kalyn Denny, Kalyn’s Kitchen

I started Kalyn’s Kitchen when I had lost weight following the South Beach Diet, and at that time there wasn’t another popular site in that same niche.

When South Beach became less popular, I quickly changed my site to focus on all types of carb-conscious eating plans, and I think the ability to sort recipes by the type of diet you’re following is one thing that has kept the blog popular all these years.

Lisa’s recipe videos are featured on YouTube and on her Low Carb Yum blog. Shot from above, these appealing videos feature upbeat music and no talking. Viewers on YouTube will find a link to the recipe placed below the video.

What lesson about blogging do you wish you’d known before starting out?

Cristina Curp, The Castaway Kitchen

That you have to learn Pinterest and SEO to monetize.

I was really late in the game in optimizing those two and I’ve had to play catch up.

Ryan Lowery, Ketogenic

It took us a while to figure out the impact of video content.

We put out a ton of infographics and articles, but videos allow people to connect on a whole other level that I think we could have started earlier.

Stacey Crawford, Beauty and the Foodie

I wish I had invested in classes and learned to use my camera sooner in my blogging career.

Sometimes my being frugal does hold me back.

I just didn’t want to invest money in my blog until it was making money. But I would have benefitted from the knowledge sooner.

Megan Ellam, Mad Creations

Find your target market and cater to them. My way isn’t always right.

After looking at who I was aiming to capture the attention of and changing my style my business took off in a positive direction.

Libby, Ditch the Carbs

It’s tough! You have to be the writer, photographer, developer, email marketer, author, researcher, financial controller, social media whiz, and the coordinator of all things.

Lezlee Parrish, The Lazy Keto

Oh, my! it is definitely a full-time job!

When I started out I never wanted to be one of those blogs/accounts that doesn’t respond to anyone. So, I strive to make time to reply to messages and comments.

We’re all here to help and learn from each other, so I try my best to always be available.

Luis Villasensor, Ketogains

How to engage the audience more properly.

Chris Bair, Keto Chow

Get a scalable/performant platform, learn how to take good photos.

Kim, Low Carb Maven

Having a food blog is more than taking a picture and writing a recipe.

It’s important to make connections with your readers. I don’t have a large personality or share much about myself or family in posts, but I manage to connect with readers in comments, on Facebook, and in Newsletters.

This builds trust and repeat traffic.

Dr. Adam Nally, DocMuscles

Importance of writing regularly.

Antya Markin, Queen Keto

Firstly, I wish I had started out with an SSL certificate for the blog. Instead, I will soon have to embark on a demanding and challenging technical conversion and I’m not looking forward to it.

Secondly, I wish I had invested time to learn about photography before I dived in. I’m still rubbish at it, but I’m getting better. Some of my earlier recipe photos are cringe-worthy!

Lisa MarcAurele, Low Carb Yum
I wish I knew about search engine optimization and the importance of good quality photos when I first got started.

Elviira Krebber, Low Carb, So Simple

It takes time to get known. At some point, I was already about to throw in the towel but I’m glad I didn’t!

The success came with time and constant devotion.

Kalyn Denny, Kalyn’s Kitchen

It took me a long time to realize that you don’t have to do everything other bloggers do to be a success.

Now I give myself permission to do it my way, and I’m much happier and still plenty successful.

Elizabeth McDowell, Meat Free Keto
Don’t get caught up in metrics and start judging the success of your blog based on views/visitors/comments.

Obsessively checking your visits every two hours doesn’t really accomplish anything in the end (I’ve been there). Just keep chugging along.

Kyndra Holley, Peace, Love and Low Carb

I wish I would have started to learn more about SEO earlier on.

You leave a lot of money on the table when you are not appeasing the Google gods. I just didn’t know any better because everything I have done to build my blog has been self-taught.

Vivica Menegaz, The Nourished Caveman

How to delegate and hire the right help.

Libby’s blog also features YouTube video embeds. This one is her “channel trailer” – a video that introduces viewers to her blog and low-carb diets.

Best advice would you give a new blogger?

Kyndra Holley, Peace, Love and Low Carb

Don’t give up!

If you really want to do this as a profession, or even as a passion project, or side hustle, you have to treat it like it is a career while it is still a hobby.

Just keep going!

Kalyn Denny, Kalyn’s Kitchen

The food blogging field is so crowded with talented people that it’s more important than ever to pick a niche you’re passionate about and stick with it.

Vivica Menegaz, The Nourished Caveman

To focus on a specific niche, being too generic does not work in blogging.

Dr. Adam Nally, DocMuscles

Just start writing about what you love and then don’t give up.

Chris Bair, Keto Chow

Find something you’re passionate about, interested in, and are going to stick with so your blog doesn’t have 15 posts and then just lay there dormant for a few years collecting dust!

Lisa MarcAurele, Low Carb Yum
Spend the time to learn all you can before jumping in.

It isn’t as easy as just writing a post a few times a week. There’s a lot of technical things that happen behind the scenes as well as learning how to promote content so that your target audience actually sees the site.

And, it’s a lot of work to get traffic to a blog so be prepared to put a lot of hours in. However, it can be very rewarding once you’ve passed that initial stage.

Lezlee Parrish, The Lazy Keto

Just to be present and put out content. Whether it’s big or small, fancy or simple. It will be helpful to someone. Even if it’s just one, it’s all worth it.

Luis Villasensor, Ketogains

Read, learn, and always stay in the loop of the latest topics of your sphere of influence.

Antya Markin, Queen Keto

Read. Learn. Practice. Ask questions. Prepare. Make time. Enjoy.

Elizabeth McDowell, Meat Free Keto
Stay passionate! It’s this fire and joy for the subject at hand that will keep your blog interesting and worth visiting.

If you find yourself becoming bored with the subject matter, then your readers will be as well. Give yourself a break and find an angle that inspires you to post about.

Megan Ellam, Mad Creations

Plan what you want to achieve in the first 12 months.

With a clear picture, focus, and monthly goals you can achieve whatever it is you want to achieve.

Kim, Low Carb Maven

Establish a supportive network of bloggers in your niche who are blogging at the same level or a little higher than you.

You can learn a lot from each other and help one another grow.

Libby, Ditch the Carbs
There is no quick answer to anything in blogging — every problem requires time or money. You just have to choose which one.

Elviira Krebber, Low Carb, So Simple

Be prepared to post to your blog consistently and for a long time before you see the success. Consistency is the key!

Appreciate your readers by providing them high-quality content consistently.

Stacey Crawford, Beauty and the Foodie

Don’t be scared to learn something new and don’t be afraid to fail.

Everyone fails and tris again until something works.

Try to invest in yourself and your blog a little (what you can afford) by taking online classes or worshops.

Cristina Curp, The Castaway Kitchen

Be authentic. The internet, social media… it’s flooded with curated content.

You can create beautiful content while still staying true, being real and connecting with people. Don’t sell out.

Ryan Lowery, Ketogenic

Find something you are passionate about and document it.

Be authentic and transparent — the world will see through you if you aren’t.

Ryan Lowery of Ketogenic interviews Cristina Curp of The Castaway Kitchen. Interviews conducted using Skype or Google Hangouts may display some visual latency, but it’s a popular format nonetheless.

Final Notes and Resources

A big thank you to our interviewees, who persevered to accomplish more than they imagined was possible.

We encourage you to visit and become familiar with their blogs. You’ll learn so much by experiencing their work first-hand.

Key Takeaways

Our bloggers were motivated by their own personal experiences to make success on the ketogenic/low-carb path easier and more enjoyable for others.

Some of their creative ideas included:

  • Providing quick-start guides to help newbies get onboard with the diet.
  • Making it easier to maintain the diet by providing quick and delicious recipes or, in Chris’s case, grab-and-go shakes.
  • Creating a connection and two-way conversation with readers via comments, social media interaction, forums, and opportunities to share testimonials.

Regarding your own blog — no matter the topic — ask yourself: “What might make my target audience’s life easier or more enjoyable?”

Sherrie is a former magazine editor and marketing executive who helps small businesses identify and solve their biggest digital problems. That includes helping clients discover the power of a good blog.

Welcome! I’m Lisa MarcAurele, the author of the cookbook Low Carb Yum 5-Ingredient Keto and the founder of Low Carb Yum LLC. I live in Connecticut and I’ve been creating low carb recipes for over a decade. You can contact me at:

Low Carb Yum is all about making it simple to ditch carbs no matter how busy you are or how much experience you have with cooking. The site has been visited by well over 40 million people worldwide. And there’s over two million total followers on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, and Twitter.

With millions of visitors coming to the site each month, the low-carb recipes featured have been enjoyed by millions of people. And with hundreds of recipes to choose from, you are guaranteed to find one you’ll love.

Sticking to low carb has never been easier!

If you want to follow a low carb eating plan and don’t know where to start, you’ve come to the right place! Following a lifestyle where you eat very few carbohydrates is easier than you think, and I’m here to guide you every step of the way!

I created Low Carb Yum to show others that following an eating plan low in carbs doesn’t have to be complicated, restrictive, or boring. You can still enjoy many of the foods you love. It’s all about using the right ingredients to get similar tastes and textures.

But don’t worry, you don’t need to be experienced with cooking. I like to create easy recipes made with everyday foods… and you will too. With most of my recipes, you get in and out of the kitchen as quickly as possible. So even beginners can have success with the keto friendly recipes on this site.

In fact, when I first got started on low carb, I wasn’t much of a cook. I also relied heavily on convenience foods that come in a box or can. But cutting carbs changed all that and I learned how to make simple dishes from scratch.

About Me

I’m the recipe creator, food photographer, writer, and main recipe tester here. I have a keto cookbook in the works with HMH Books too!

I’m also a writer at Parade and a low carb recipe creator at Diet Doctor. My work has been featured in various publications including the following:

How my love for cooking began

Growing up, I was amazed by all the dishes my father could create from leftovers and ingredients on hand. He was a cook in the Navy and went on to manage the kitchen in a nursing home. However, it wasn’t until I was on my own in college that my dad taught me how to make a couple of his signature Filipino dishes.

Even after learning how to make wholesome meals from an experienced chef, I often turned to convenience foods. Frozen pizzas, boxed mac & cheese, and spaghetti with canned sauce were frequent dinner items. But that all changed when I made the commitment to move to a low carb way of eating. So I had to figure out how to make my own meals easily from scratch!

Why I follow a low carb diet

I have Graves’ disease, a thyroid disorder that results in an unusually high metabolism. The condition used to allow me to eat whatever I wanted without gaining weight. However, swallowing a radioactive iodine pill prescribed by my doctor changed all that. The radiation destroyed most of my thyroid and took away my revved up metabolism.

Without the help of an overactive thyroid, I gained weight quickly. So I went on various diets to lose the excess weight. A diet low in carbohydrates and high in fat was the only eating plan I was able to stick to and lose weight with long term. The other diets I tried only left me hungry and miserable.

Low carb convenience foods didn’t exist when I made the move to a low carb lifestyle. Therefore, I had to go back to my father’s training and cook my own meals from real food ingredients.

My education and professional career

I have an associate’s degree in nuclear engineering technology and a bachelor’s degree in nuclear engineering. After college, I spent twenty five years working various engineering jobs in nuclear power.

As an engineer, I was always looking for better ways to do things and how to solve problems. Those are things that I continue to do as a recipe creator and low carb food blogger.

Why I created a low carb food blog

I’ve always been obsessed with food. And although I made the move to a low-carb lifestyle, I did not want to eliminate all the foods I love. So I began experimenting in the kitchen back in 2001 to figure out how I could lower carbs in my favorite recipes.

I discovered that with the right combination of ingredients, it wasn’t difficult to make low carb versions of my favorite dishes. Since there were others having trouble with low carb cooking, I launched this blog in 2010 to share my recipes with the world. It was something that was really needed back then because low carb recipes weren’t easy to find online.

Even today with keto blogs being more common, I still get requests from others on how to make their favorite foods after moving to the low carb lifestyle. And I love the challenge of creating delicious keto friendly versions of popular high carb foods.

About the Recipes

I try NOT to make recipes that are overly complicated and I like to stick to wholesome natural ingredients. My motto is to keep it simple.

All the recipes at Low Carb Yum are…

  • Keto friendly
  • Low in carbohydrates
  • Very low in sugar
  • Gluten-free
  • made with natural based ingredients

There are also recipes here for those with food sensitivities. I know how difficult dairy and egg whites due to food sensitivities. That’s why I also offer many recipes that fit special dietary needs including the following:

  • Dairy-free
  • Paleo (including the AIP autoimmune protocol)
  • Nut-free
  • Egg-free
  • Vegetarian
  • Vegan
  • Kid-friendly

With over 700 low carb recipes, there’s sure to be something for everyone. But it can be a little overwhelming so be sure to start at the recipe index which makes it easy to find a particular type of dish.

Why Low Carb?

A natural based diet low in carbs has made it easy to maintain my weight despite the fact that most of my thyroid no longer functions. My energy levels during the day have also improved and I find that I’m a lot more focused.

If you’re just getting started on low carb, I offer a free 3-Day Keto Meal Plan that was developed by a dietician to make it easy to start on the right track. I also outline the basics on how to move to a low carb diet as well as provide a list of keto friendly foods along with the best low carb sweeteners.

Although keto seems to be very trendy these days, I’ve never been that strict with carbs. And I like to get the majority of my carbs from plant based vegetables and fruits. Keto is a low carb diet but a low carb eating plan isn’t necessarily keto. It’s a bit confusing at first so be sure to check out my post on low carb versus keto.

If you’re ready to jump in and get started, grab my 3-Day Meal Plan to get going right away!

Perfect Keto by Dr. Anthony Gustin.

Perfect Keto was co-founded by Dr. Anthony Gustin, a certified sports chiropractor, functional medicine provider and entrepreneur.

Over the last few years, he has treated thousands of patients with movement rehab, internal diagnostics, and natural interventions, including everyone from weekend warriors to NFL, MLB and NBA champions. He grew his sports rehab and functional medicine clinics to six locations in San Francisco before shifting his mission to help as many people as possible achieve optimal health and well-being.

Along the way, he learned that there are four essential pillars of health: nutrition, movement, stress and sleep. Without all of these in check, you’ll never fully optimize your life.

Throughout working with injured and sick patients, he noticed that most clients had the hardest time with nutrition: the most important and impactful pillar.

That is why he created Perfect Keto.

What is your favorite keto blog?

Prevention is always better than cure when we’re talking about health. One of the many ways we can achieve optimum nutritional status, aside from fighting the urge to go through that drive-thru, is to stick to a certain type of diet. We all have different body compositions and metabolic rates. With this, we need to consult with health professionals which type of diet will best work for us with our current situation. One of the few popular but science-based diets we can rely on today is the low-carbohydrate diet.

Review – KetoDiet App

With the rise in interest in Low Carb and Paleo diets it is great to see an app available to help people make the right decision on what to eat which will comply with this new way of eating.

For so many years we have been pushed by dieticians and other health experts to value and chose food according to the amount of calories or fat in the food but for a low carber the issue is not about calories but carbs. This becomes even more key if you are looking to achieve nutritional ketosis which is triggered by keeping your carbs down to below 60-50 grams a day. So quickly working out the carbs in each portion of food is critical to success. The KetoDiet App does just this. Thank you!

The Keto App provides reliable information in an easy interactive way.. Not only that the keto diet website provides fantastic recipes which work with the App to make it truly supportive to a low carb/paleo lifestyle.


One of the areas that does cause much confusion is the term Net Carbs. The Keto Diet App has been originated in the USA and that is why the term Net Carbs is the term used for calculating carbohydrates. In the UK we do not have this phrase but do not worry as you should treat the carbohydrate count in the UK as the equivalent of Net Carbs.

This is because the USA government defines carbohydrates including fibre but for some reason in the UK our government defines carbs as those carbohydrates excluding fibre. As a consequence our carbohydrate value is the same as the term Net Carbs as used in the USA.

For example:

If an item, in America, contains 5g of Total Carbohydrates, out of which 2g consist of Dietary Fibre, then the Net Carbohydrate content of this product is 3g.

Here in the UK Net Carbohydrates are already calculated within nutritional labels as simple/complex carbohydrates are one entity (Carbohydrate) and dietary fibre is separately labelled as Fibre. Hence there is no need to calculate Net Carbohydrate content for a product that follows EU labelling rules.

For example:

If an item, from an EU country, is said to contain 3g of Carbohydrate and 2g of Fibre. Then the amount of carbohydrates that will affect blood sugar levels is 3g.

Overall Verdict

Everyone here at Natural Ketosis loves this App. It is simple to use, looks great and the recipes are easy to follow (not to mention the food photography which is enough to get your stomach rumbling). We would certainly recommend this application for individuals who are looking at maintaining their weight as well as looking to get back to a clean ketogenic eating pattern after a few too many nights out.

Best Keto Apps In 2020 To Make Your Keto Journey Easier

Table of Contents

Technology is here to make your life easier. Where computers used to be the thing of science fiction, now most of us carry one in our pockets – a smartphone. Because of technology I can sit and write this article in a coffee shop instead of an office, and you can read it no matter where in the world you are. Technology is AWESOME!

You can also use this technology to make sticking to your keto diet easier. In this article, we reveal some of the best keto apps designed specifically to make your low-carb diet as easy as possible.

In the old days, if you wanted to know whether a food was keto or not, you’d have to look it up in a book. Talk about tedious! Diet apps make identifying keto-friendly foods and tracking your calorie and macro intake as easy as sending a text message. The easier your diet is, the more likely you are to stick to it.

Don’t make things harder than they need to be – download a ketodiet app today!

Best Keto Apps

These apps work on iOS or Android phones and tablets, and some offer online access too. Many are free (with or without ads) or cost no more than the price of a cup of fancy coffee. Considering how useful they are, even the paid apps are excellent value. Once you get used to using a nutrition tracker, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without one!

Here are ten of the best food tracker apps!

1. Total Keto Diet app

They say there is no such things as a free lunch, but this app is the exception to the rule! The Total Keto Diet app is entirely free and works on Android and iOS devices. It has a macro tracker so you can record your protein, fat, and carb intake. However, this is more than just a nutrition tracker; Total Keto Diet app also has lots of other useful functions including:

  • A vast database of low-carb recipes with new recipes added weekly
  • The ability to save your favorite ingredients and recipes for easier access and convenience
  • Keto resources such as beginners’ guides, shopping lists, meal plans, and recipe suggestions
  • Offline functionality so you can keep on using the app even when you don’t have an internet connection

The Total Keto Diet app comes with a free 7-day trial for a meal planning service. This may be a useful addition for those who find planning their keto diet tricky or time-consuming.

Download it here: https://www.totalketodiet.com

2. My Fitness Pal

MyFitnessPal has been around for years, and each year it seems to get better and better. Available as an app and also online, MyFitnessPal is a very popular nutrition tracker and offers a massive database of foods so you will have no problem identifying keto-friendly things to eat.

It’s not explicitly designed as a ketodiet app, but it is completely compatible with low-carb dieting. You can set up your target macro percentages to reflect your personal nutritional needs, making staying in ketosis a breeze. Users of MyFitnessPal can also add foods to the database so that it’s always growing.

MyFitnessPal also allows you to track your weight and body measurements so that you can monitor your progress. This is useful for motivation. You can also use MyFitnessPal to record your workouts and activity levels too. This means you can easily adjust your food intake based on how active you are.

The basic version of MyFitnessPal is free, but you can get the more comprehensive premium version for just $9.99 per month.

3. Chron-o-meter

Chron-o-meter allows you to track over 300,000 different foods. It’s one of the more precise diet trackers currently available. That’s good news if you are a detail-focused keto dieter. The food lists are linked to the latest USDA databases so you can always be sure of getting the most up-to-date information available.

Where most nutrition trackers cover the macros, Chron-o-meter also allows you to track 60+ micronutrients. This is good news because, when doing keto, it’s all too easy to focus exclusively on your fat, protein, and carb intake, and forget all about the importance of vitamins, minerals, and fiber. With Chron-o-meter, you never need to worry if you are eating enough potassium, vitamin E, or eating too much sodium – it’s all there on the app.

Chron-o-meter is available for iOS and Android, and there is an online version too. There are basic free and paid premium versions available. As well as being a great diet tracker, you can also record your workouts on this app.

4. Carb Manager

Carb Manager is designed specifically for keto dieters. Where most diet trackers cater for keto dieters as well as people following calorie-counting diets, Carb Manager is all keto, all the time!

This diet app offers lots of useful functions and features that will make starting and following a keto diet much easier. These functions include:

  • A database of over 1,000,000 foods listing carbs, net carbs, protein, fat, and micronutrients
  • 1,000+ exclusive keto-friendly recipes and over 10,000 user-submitted recipes plus access to 350,000+ web recipes
  • Customizable meal plans and shopping lists

5. FatSecret

FatSecret is a very versatile diet tracker app that is perfectly compatible with keto dieting. It works on virtually every platform, from smartphones to tablets to PCs, and it’s super-easy to use. Best of all, unlike many diet apps, this one is 100% free. There is no basic or premium option – it costs nothing, nada, zilch!

Don’t think that, just because it is free, this app cuts any corners or is in any way inferior. It’s a quality product that makes sticking to your keto diet much easier. Functions include:

  • A food diary so you can track your meals and macros
  • A vast database of healthy-eating recipes
  • Database for foods, brands, and popular restaurants
  • Exercise diary
  • Weight tracking chart and weight loss journal
  • Community support for all users via an interactive forum

FatSecret might not be as polished as some of the other apps, but that’s more than okay when you consider the price.

6. Senza

Senza is much more than a ketodiet app that helps you track your macros and calories. Instead, it’s like a keto diet expert in your pocket and is designed to guide you step-by-step through the intricacies of keto dieting.

Fat bombs are very useful for successful keto dieting. Eating enough fat is not always easy, but if you don’t eat enough fat, your diet will fail. Similarly, most diet snack foods are loaded with carbs. As any keto dieter knows, carbs are to be avoided during the ketogenic diet.

Fat bombs are the perfect solution to both of these problems. They make eating enough fat a breeze, and they are filling and nutritious too. They don’t just contain fat either. Most fat bombs are also high in keto-diet-friendly superfoods like protein, cocoa, and coconut.

Download the Android version here: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.appktchn.fatbombs

Download the iOS version here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/keto-fat-bomb-recipes/id1252501365?mt=8

9. Lazy Keto app

Technology is a double-edged sword. While it undeniably makes life more comfortable, it’s also part of the reason so many people are overweight in the first place! Labor saving devices mean that physical activity can be hard to come by, and food is more abundant than ever before. Some foods only exist because of technology – especially junk food.

But, while all that technology may be partially responsible for weight gain, it’s good to know that it can also be part of the solution. Diet apps make keto dieting much more manageable. No more sitting with a pen and calculator trying to work out how many calories or carbs you have eaten. Just use an app!

You can make progress without a ketodiet app, but you’ll find things go more smoothly if you embrace technology and use one. You don’t even have to spend any money – many of the apps in this article are free or allow you to try them before you buy. Even the most expensive ones cost less than a few cents a day.

Make keto dieting easier by using a food tracker app. You won’t regret it!

What is Keto?
When you follow a ketogenic diet by reducing your carb intake to less than 50 grams of carbs a day, your body will start producing ketones in the liver. You will enter ketosis and start using fat and ketone bodies as energy source. One of the main benefits of ketosis is its ability to suppress appetite. While your ketone levels will increase, your blood glucose levels and insulin levels will drop, leading to satiety. You will naturally eat less and the number of calories eaten will drop.
