I just went through an eight week trial on the keto diet. There are plenty of websites that educate and support keto dieters. I did not find the diet difficult, I enjoyed trying a lot of the great recipes and managed to stay in ketosis most of the time. I did loose a few pounds the first couple of weeks, just maintained the next few, then started to gain. The problem I experienced was keeping a calorie deficit. It was very difficult to eat the amount of fat required to reach ketosis and stay within the calorie ranged needed to loose weight. I have stopped trying to stay in ketosis and am adding more carbs back into my diet. One big benefit of being on the keto diet is that I no longer crave sugar and junk food. I think my diet will be much healthier now with healthy fats and protein and healthy carbs. Good luck to you.

"Are there step by step directions anywhere on Spark People?"
No, because this website does not advocate keto.
SparkPeople is about moderation, not deprivation, and no food is a bad food.
You can find people who eat that way, and you can find teams for support.
But you are not going to see step-by-step instructions for something the staff does not believe in...
