You are more than just a number on the scale you check every two days. Health isn’t just your weight; it’s about how well you feel, and how much energy you have. Whether you keto or not, wellness and healthy weight loss starts with basic and sustainable choices that become lifelong habits.
If you want to make the most out of your weight loss journey like we have before, then please consider adopting some of these habits and/or choices that will help you unleash your limitless potential in 2021.
We want you to make the most out of the new year, and we want you to do it right.
1. Go Low-Carb
Among all diets, the unsung hero is the low-carb diet! Unlike other trends and diets, the low-carb diet offers flexibility when it comes to food choices. You simply keep carbs to a minimum and get your energy from a high fat and protein diet.
As your body takes fewer carbohydrates, you will feel fewer food cravings, improved brain function and a more balanced level of blood sugar.
Too easy? Then bump it another level and put your body into ketosis on a keto diet. Check out our 101 on what the keto diet is here. '
Keto can boost your overall health and cut those pounds like there is no tomorrow. Start your year the right way with an increased ability to focus/concentrate and look/feel the way you want to.
Both these options are a great way to start the year off right, and to feel the way you want to. You can make the most of these two alternatives by adding some MCT oil into your morning coffee or shake; it'll make your body a fat-burning machine!

2. Become a Morning Person
Don’t just dream about your ambitions, wake up and actually achieve them. You can’t climb the ladder of success by tapping on your snooze button multiple times and sleeping in. Get your seven hours of sleep, wake up early and make the most of your day. Got work at 7 in the morning? Go to sleep earlier the night before, wake up at 5.30, and go do some exercise. Hitting exercise before work removes any schedule conflicts and frees up your evenings to socialize or be a vigilante.
Remember that before and after your strenuous morning workout, rejuvenate with electrolytes! It improves exercise, performance and muscle recovery. What’s even better is – if you are fasting – Keppi electrolyte powder contains no sugar/calories! Smash goals and shed pounds without feeling weak in the morning.

3. Make Some Simple Changes
Look at what you are doing on a day-to-day basis right now. Is any of that holding you back from becoming your best self in the new year? You may think that swearing off no sugar or no bread is a health goal, but it really isn’t – they are restrictions. We suggest more sustainable changes in your daily routine. For instance, a healthy swap is having wholemeal bread instead of white bread. You aren’t cutting carbs here, but you are having a lower glycemic index (GI) option, which releases blood sugar slower into the body. Thus, you have more energy throughout the day. Think smarter and don’t punish yourself. Here are some of the changes we recommend to help you start 2021 off right:
- Swap soda/alcoholic beverages and replace them with soda water. Want more flavour in that soda water? Mix in lemon-lime ketone powder or raspberry lemonade electrolyte powder. Keppi ketones will help you achieve ketosis, and one serving of our powder contains a mere 30 calories per serving. Also, our electrolytes are free of calories! Look good and feel your best with this simple swap.
- Replace high GI foods with low GI foods. With any diet (especially keto), lower GI foods are the way to go. Examples of this include nuts, soy products, milk, and fish – just to name a few. As aforementioned, the energy from the food releases slower in the body, leaving you less hungry and fuelled for longer.
- Add collagen to your coffee. Collagen is a beautiful supplement that supports your entire body, from anti-wrinkle properties to joint pain relief. All you have to do is add one scoop of collagen to something you have every morning (coffee if that’s you), and you are delivered with a whole bunch of health benefits.

4. Aim for Better, not 'Perfect'
You’ve made it this far, and you are ready to set some serious goals. Are they unrealistic? We know that people can be a bit hard on themselves sometimes. Becoming ‘perfect’ is an unrealistic and lousy goal to set.
At the end of the day, it’s not about being ‘perfect’. It’s about gradual and continuous improvement. Don’t get down on yourself if you miss a workout – you haven’t failed your new year resolutions if you have!
Instead, look back at the week and be proud of yourself for the great work you did put in. After that, tell yourself that you can do better the next day and the following week after. Success is the small steps you take into becoming a person you are proud of. No one is perfect, after all!
With Keppi, it is easy to make delicious choices and changes that will help you unleash your limitless potential and start 2021 the right way. Remember… to increase your motivation, be compassionate with yourself. Ask yourself what led to this decision, strategize about what you can do differently in the future and commit to making a better choice next time.
