Ketosis is different than most diets as to most diets are only focused on calories in and calories out. A ketosis diet does not require calorie restriction and actually is supported by high protein and high fat foods which are satiating and satisfying. Ketosis only requires the removal of grains and starches which are typically nutritionally devoid and starchy vegetables and fruits while in phase 1. When in Ketosis, you may also want to consider Intermittent fasting which is said to mimic the habits of our ancestors who did not have restaurants and grocery stores and would roam for food and periodically skip meals or have a longer period of time in between meals or eating.
