Lim Ai San
Wanting to lose weight after her pregnancy, Lim Ai San decided to go on a keto diet. "It worked for me because it had all of the ingredients and the stuff that I loved. I thought it was a doable diet," she says.
For those looking to adopt a keto diet, Lim notes that the first few days might be the most difficult part as you learn to adapt. However, once she learned how to make keto-friendly versions of certain things that she missed, things got a lot easier.
"Everybody loses weight differently," says Lim, telling T.Dining that she lost four kilograms in a week after adopting a keto diet, while others may only see that result in a month. Even though you're on keto, Lim stresses that exercise is still integral.
These are her 6 easy-to-cook snacks and meals made for beginners.
1. Dairy Free Keto Latte
A quick and easy keto-friendly breakfast in a glass. Coconut oil isn't only healthy but also has a high content of good fat, perfect for a keto diet. However, some stomachs may not respond well to coconut oil, a possible form of laxative, but can be replaced with unsalted butter or cream.
1 - 3 tablespoon(s) coconut oil / substitute with a dollop of unsalted butter or cream if needed
1 cup of boiling water
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
A dash of cinnamon powder (optional)
1. Put eggs, coconut oil (or substitute), vanilla extract and boiling water together in a blender and blend until mixed well.
2. Pour into a cup and garnish with cinnamon powder before drinking.
