The 2020 New Year 3 Week Keto Challenge starts on

Monday January 6th, 2020.

You Deserve to Be Healthy & Happy!

What is the 3 Week Keto Challenge?

  • The 3 Week Keto Challenge is a personal challenge where you choose to commit to three weeks of strict keto and join a group where we inspire and hold each other accountable.
  • The challenge actually lasts 28 days. There is one week of preparation and then 3 weeks of eating strict Keto.
  • I will act as your guide and help you through the hard days.
  • You will be invited to join my closed group on Facebook where you will make new keto friends who will support you as you crush keto.
  • You’ll receive daily emails during the challenge to grow your keto knowledge in just a few minutes each day.

When is the 2020 New Year Challenge?

  • The Prep Week Starts Monday, January 6, 2020.  Enjoy the holidays, then let’s crush keto together.
  • After the prep-week there are three weeks of strict keto challenge.
  • At the end of this challenge, you’ll not only have upgraded your diet and life, you’ll have the opportunity to win a $50 Amazon Gift Card if you share your results and before & after (face only) pictures.

What does it cost?

  • The challenge is FREE! There is no cost to participate, receive the emails, or be part of the support group on Facebook.
  • However, if you are new to keto, I hope you’ll consider using my No Cook Keto Meal Plan & Cookbook for at least part of the three-week challenge.  You can be successful in the challenge as a keto newbie doing it all alone, but if you want to crush keto and know once and for all if keto is right for you, the meal plan will make it so much easier and less confusing. Give yourself every advantage to succeed.

The 3 Week Keto Challenge Rules

  1. Follow the Rules of Keto
  2. No Cheating
  3. Take Before & After Pictures and Measurements (Just for yourself)

Why should you take the challenge?

If you want to lose weight, you should do it the easiest way.

  1. The easiest way to lose weight is a low carb diet.
  2. The easiest way to do low carb is keto.
  3. The easiest way to do keto is with No Cook Keto and with some keto friends.

Still not sure if keto is for you?

  • Are you tired all the time?

    1. Hi Suzn,

      Thanks for bringing this to my attention…it really wasn’t very clear before.

      I do think I’ve made it more clear now. I added a shaded box to this article outlining some options for meal planning.

      The 3 Week Keto Challenge doesn’t have a specific meal plan because we’re sure we’ll have people joining us with much different levels of keto experience. I’ve listed some meal planning options in the article. If you want the easiest plan, check out No Cook Keto. You’ll find your other options above in the article.

      Don’t hesitate to ask any other questions.


  1. I’m looking at starting a KetoTone lifestyle but have a few questions.
    I’m 62, type 2 diabetic and had a RNY gastric bipass in 2002.
    I’m 5’ tall and presently 172lbs. I would like to see 140 or less again.
    Do you see any RED FLAGS that should concern me??

    1. Hi Jerri! Good for you for taking personal responsibility for your health! I hope you are able to find a comfortable home with this way of eating that works for your particular body.

      A gastric bypass is a major deal, and the effect on your body and digestion is significant. I would definitely say you should talk to your doctor and find out if they think Keto is appropriate for the changes in your digestive system. The large amount of fat on a keto diet can be hard for some people who’ve had gastric bypass, but you could modify your macros to meet your needs.

      A low-carb diet like Keto can be great for T2 diabetics, as it will lower insulin levels, which will improve blood sugar levels. Make sure you are working with your doctor on this, as well, particularly if you are on medication. As your insulin levels change, you may need to adjust (or hopefully in the future get rid of entirely) your meds.

      Have you tried any kind of low-carb diet in the past?

    1. Ruth,

      We’d love to help you get control of your health. Being diabetic, before you start a keto diet it is very important that you consult your medical professional. A lower carb load will definitely effect your insulin levels and medications. We personally believe that the Keto Diet is the easiest way to limit carbs, but you’d have to work closely with your doctor while starting a keto diet. The easiest way to start a keto diet is the No Cook Keto Meal Plan, and you should show it to your doctor before you start.

  2. Did Atkins about 10 years ago, lost 19 lbs which have slowly come back. Looking forward to giving this a try.
    I know it’s past the start date but would still like to give it a try.

    1. Jean – You can totally start the 3 Week Challenge any time that works for you. Keto differs from Atkins mostly in that it keeps protein to moderate levels and emphasizes fat intake, particularly in the beginning. Eating lots of fat helps you feel satisfied and aids your body’s transition into ketosis. Learning how to eat Keto and adjusting to ketosis is the most important goal of the 3 Week Challenge. Good luck and let us know how it goes!

  3. Where do I begin? it all seems confusing. I find the fat intake part hard 70% fats 25% protein 5% crabs

    1. You’re not alone. Lots of people find the Keto Diet Complicated and Confusing when they are trying to start a keto diet. That’s why Angela wrote The No Cook Keto Meal Plan. It has just the basic information that you need to get started, and a super simple meal plan for the first three weeks. Then while you’re making the transition to Ketosis in those first three weeks, you’ll be getting daily support emails that will build on your keto knowledge in short bite-sized emails. Check it out.

  4. I have talked to my doctor about the keto diet before as I am type 2 diabetic. He said that I could do a modified version of the diet. What would that be? I currently weigh 326 pounds and need to lose around 140 pounds. I am 54 years old and want to live to be 55.

    1. Hi Naomi,

      I honestly don’t know what those modifications would be, but if your doctor suggested a modified keto I’d encourage you to talk more to them about what modifications they suggest. There are lots of ways to modify the keto diet.

      Regardless, as a type 2 diabetic, you must work closely with your doctor throughout your keto diet. The diet will change your medication requirements throughout and hopefully in time you’ll no longer need diabetic meds.

      When your doctor shares the modifications, please let me know what they are. I want to learn what they are thinking, and I want to help you.

  5. I shared the #3weekchallange on Facebook to all friends and family!

    I’m excited to strictly return to Keto. I feel so much better mentally and physically. Thanks for your help!

    1. Thank you for spreading the word about our Free 3 Week Keto Challenge. The more people the more fun and success!

  6. Just wanted to let you know I shared via email and Facebook, your link to a few friends that are on Keto now and some who have been asking more about it. I am excited to have an outlet that’s not just Facebook drama.

    1. Laurene, Thanks so much for sharing the challenge with your friends! Having a support network can make all the difference in our success. And our community is very helpful and non-dramatic. I’m grateful for that, too. 😉

  7. I too am insulin resistant and a brittle diabetic, difficulty controlling levels. I will see my doctor on the 28th. Hopeful this will work.

    1. Anna, Keto can be very effective at lowering insulin levels, which helps with diabetes. Please make sure you are working with your doctor and they know you are changing your way of eating. This is especially important if you are on medications, which may need to be adjusted as you progress. You can do this!

  8. Every time I click the Rules PDF it opens the keto challenge progress chart. So I am unable to print the Rules to keep on my fridge where I can see them all the time.

    1. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I’ve got it fixed now. So glad you’re doing the #3WeekKeto Challenge with us.

  9. I’ve shared via Facebook, email, and talked to a couple of my co-workers in the break room! Woohoo! I’ve been doing keto since early February, but we’re going to California at the end of June for a wedding so the timing on the 3 week challenge is perfect!

    1. Thank you for sharing! More people more fun. You’re in the drawing for the Amazon Gift Card!

  10. I have shared via Facebook, email and told a couple friends as well. I am excited to start!!

  11. I am excited to try keto for the first time and feel improved mobility and less inflammation. I shared with a few of my friends via text message and my mother in law who also has some health concerns and may benefit from keto

    1. Maggie – That’s awesome! My husband and I have both experienced less joint pain first hand and have seen lots of other folks who have, as well. If it’s not too overwhelming, consider avoiding industrially processed seed oils (soybean, corn, vegetable and canola oil are some of the most common.) These are highly inflammatory! If that’s too much at first, don’t worry about it. Once you get comfortable with ketosis, you can make adjustments like that and upgrade as you go. Good luck!
      And you’re entered in the drawing. Thanks so much for sharing!

  12. I have found the links. When I download, I get the front page and not the whole article.
    The same with the No Cook Keto freebie for one week?

    1. The printables are just single page synopsis of the main article. But it’s a great idea to have links by the downloads to the whole article. Thanks for the ideas!

  13. My husband and I are both going to try the 3 week challenge. Recipes are good for us – I will need to tweak some foods that my husband won’t eat but they are minor.

    My question(s) for you is: I find it overwhelming to figure out portion sizes for both my husband and I. He weighs in now at 277 and I am at 187. He would like to get down below 200 and I would like to get to 160 as starting goals. Using the No Cook Keto recipes how do I follow this without serving/eating too much food? Also I have read that there are pros and cons of tracking calories – our primary care physician (who does Keto)suggested we track calories also. How do you feel about this?

    1. Karen – First of all, congrats on embarking on this journey together! Having each other for support will make all the difference.

      I don’t stress counting calories at the beginning. During your first three weeks on Keto, your goal is not to lose a bunch of weight. Your goal is to get into ketosis and get used to this way of eating. Eat enough to feel satisfied but not stuffed. As you learn what Keto looks and feels like, you’ll also be learning to listen to your body. Your feelings of hunger will change when you are in ketosis. Adding forced calorie restriction at this point just makes it harder than it needs to be.

      Once you are in ketosis and used to eating Keto, if you want to lose weight, then you’ll want to pay more attention to total calorie intake and probably lower your fat intake. This article I wrote talks about changes to make to your Keto when you want to lose weight: https://www.advantagemeals.com/lose-weight-on-keto/

      For now, it’s ok eat what looks and feels like the right amount – make sure to stop when you feel full! Just keep track of your macros so you know if your carbs are below 25 net grams and your fat is at least 70% of your calorie intake. The No Cook Keto meal plan averages out to about 1500 calories per day. If you’re still hungry, first add more fat (either to a meal or increase the fat bombs or fatty snacks.) If after 20 minutes or so you’re still hungry, add some protein. After a few days, you’ll know about what is right for both you and your husband. Since I don’t know your situation, I’m just guessing, but I’d say you will want to add an extra tablespoon of fat to each meal for you. Your husband will maybe want that extra tablespoon of fat to each meal, plus an extra fat bomb and maybe 1/3 again more protein at meals.

      I hope this helps!

  14. I have kicked my pop habit now on water my body feels so much better now and becoming less fatigued and my AC1 is now 5.9 which my doctor says is excellent and now I only take 1 shot a day. This will be my lifestyle forever and a great change for men. I want to join your Facebook group too. Merry Christmas to all.
