There are countless different ways to do the keto diet, and if we’re honest, most don’t look so appealing to us.
This is why we created this set of 5 principles that we call Graceful Keto.
1. We don’t stress.
Keto should make life easier, not harder! We believe that with the right know-how and tools, you can achieve your goals, sans the stress.
If done right, ketogenic diets fundamentally have the potential to bring the body into a state of greater calm and harmony by balancing blood sugar, energy levels and hormones. Graceful Keto aims to maximize the balance-promoting effects of the ketogenic diet at every level.
2. We focus on feeling great first. (and look great as a result)
Obviously, people are able to lose huge amounts of weight on a keto diet. But we believe a focus on aesthetics only (or what your scale says for that matter...) is a game that is rarely won.
We believe the true power of the Keto diet is how it can help us to feel amazing - physically, mentally and emotionally. And, as it turns out, when we feel great, it’s 1000x easier to follow through and achieve our goals for body composition.

3. We eat beautiful foods.
Looking around Instagram at what keto people are eating, we see a lot of greasy, cheesy, grey and brown meals. If this is your thing, well, you do you - but this is not what we want to put in our bodies every day.
We believe eating beautiful, colorful foods is not only more nutritious, it’s better for the soul.
4. We eat plant based.
We believe that - as a general principle - plant based foods are cleaner, more nutritious and have a lower ethical and ecological impact. Good for us, good for the animals, good for the future of our spaceship.
Our products are always 100% plant-based. We occasionally use Organic Pasture-Raised eggs in our recipes as we’ve found these to meet our high ecological, ethical and nutritional standards when sourced from reputable farms.
5. We believe in Cyclic Ketogenic eating.
Alternating periods of ketogenic eating with periods of low-carb eating makes life easier and more enjoyable. But this is not the only reason we’re big advocates for Cyclic Keto:
The research shows convincingly that if your goal is to optimize both near-term health and longevity, there is huge benefit to regularly cycling on and off of a ketogenic diet.
