Save $0.80 and get the same amount of caffeine by ordering a Short latte instead of a Tall.

These fun-sized drinks (8 oz. versus a 12 oz. Tall) contain the same amount of caffeine for less money (you get less milk to espresso)!

Plan Your Meals.

One of the best keto tips and tricks I always tell people is that meal planning is a game changer. Grabbing a bag of chips, a candy bar, or a box of pasta may be easy on a high-carb diet, but sticking to a low carb lifestyle requires more planning. And that’s okay! It’s totally doable and does not have to take hours out of your day. You can make your own plan, whether that’s planning for the week ahead like I do or simply looking at the day ahead in the morning. If you use a tracking app, some people find it helpful to enter what you’ll eat ahead of time so to help you plan better. Or, you can just use my keto diet menu for beginners so I can do it for you. Planning what you’ll eat each day – at least approximately – will save you both time and money. But, it can also be difficult and time consuming to come up with that plan, making sure it fits your macros, offers enough variety, and tastes good. That’s why I create easy keto meal plan for beginners every week. They balance meal prep, super simple recipes (that even non-keto family members will eat!), and occasional leftovers to save time and money. I have options for a single person or a family of four, so that it can fit your life. Sign up for a free week of keto meal plans here!

Choose The Keto Lifestyle For You.

At the end of the day, these keto diet tips will help anyone wanting to jump start their keto journey, but it doesn’t mean there’s a one-size-fits-all solution. Different people do low carb in different ways, that’s okay! Often times people ask me about the different ways people can follow keto, and here are some of the most common:

Save $1.19 by ordering 2 Junior Roast Beef Sandwiches instead of a Classic Roast Beef Sandwich.

You get more of the same food for less money. Bonus Tip: Buy anything off the menu, then call the number on the back of the receipt to do a quick survey. Write down the survey code and get back in line for a FREE Roast Beef Sandwich or Beef’n Cheddar Sandwich.

Save $10 by ordering a large carryout 3-topping pizza with pineapple, ham, and bacon instead of a large Honolulu Hawaiian.

Technically, the Honolulu Hawaiian also has shredded parmesan asiago and roasted red peppers. Add both as additional toppings to your 3-topping carryout pizza and still save $7. Bonus Tip: Call your local branch and see if they have any pizzas that weren’t delivered or picked up. There’s a good chance you can get the pizza at a discounted price.

Split a Footlong and customize each 6-inch portion instead of ordering individual 6-inch subs.

You can’t change the meat or the bread, but you can change the cheese, produce, and condiments—which saves you a couple dollars.

Keep all the ingredients deliciously tucked in by ordering a sub “old cut style.

The subway artist just needs to make a V shape or trench into the bread, instead of slicing along the side. This will neatly hold your toppings, and keep the ingredients from slipping out the sides.

Ditch the cheap, clear water cup and opt for a medium-size cup for about $0.60 instead of paying $2 for a water bottle.

Bonus Tip: As part of their 50th anniversary celebrations, Subway is letting customers add 50% more meat to their 6-inch sandwiches for just $0.50 more.

If you’re getting a military room rate at any Disney Resort, you can actually get the dining plan too.

In case you didn’t know, in order to get the Disney Dining Plan, you have to buy a Magic Your Way vacation package which consists of your resort room, dining plan, and park tickets (only if you aren’t an annual passholder or Disney Vacation Club member). But if you’re in the military (or reserves, or retired) you can get military Disney tickets for ($180ish) as opposed to anywhere upwards $250). So when booking a Disney room, you can also opt for the dining plan minus tickets.
