1. Read The FAQ Before Posting
Do your part. Check the FAQ and do a search of previous posts before posting to r/keto.
2. Stay on Topic / No Cheat Posts
Stay on topic. Off topic posts include: cheat posts, posts about other diets/others that are not eating keto, "farewell" posts/posts asking how to stop keto and resume a "normal" diet, etc. Please keep these in the community support thread on the main page.
2.a: Why no cheat posts? In addition to being off-topic, cheat posts are specifically against the rules of this subreddit because they are negative, defeatist, and can serve as a trigger to those who are struggling.
3. Be respectful and accurate
Personal attacks, threats, inappropriate/sexual comments, thread crapping, fear mongering, intellectual dishonesty, posting misinformation, gatekeeping, excessively aggressive posting, and sexualizing/insulting/minimizing posts on progress pictures will not be allowed.
These sorts of posts may result in a permanent ban with no prior warning. Please see the Community Guidelines for a more detailed explanation of what types of comments are in violation of this rule.
3.a: Zero tolerance will be afforded to posts containing racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, or other identity-based slurs (i.e., insulting a person's ability/disability, looks, etc.).
4. No Low Effort Posts
Low effort posts will be removed. This includes: title-only posts, posts with under 200 characters including those that contain only links to articles or images/memes, posts asking questions that are explicitly answered in the FAQ, etc. Save your memes for r/ketocirclejerk
5. No Self Promotion / Spam
Self promotion includes: posts linking to or containing personal blogs/channels/websites/social media pages/watermarks, affiliate/referral links, or surveys for market research or educational purposes. If you are posting progress pictures with a watermark we ask that the watermark contain your Reddit username only.
6. No Giving or Soliciting Medical Advice
Reddit is not a replacement for your doctor. Do not solicit or offer medical advice on this subreddit.
** All post/comment removals, and bans are at the discretion of the mod team**
