Although the Ketogenic diet is the most nutritionally complete diet we’ve ever eaten, it can take a few weeks for your body to get adjusted to this new way of eating.
This adjustment process can cause some discomforts you should know about.
All of these complaints are temporary, and part of the adjustment process. Just knowing about them, and what to do about them, can make your transition to Keto much easier.
The simple tips mentioned in the video below by Dr. Berry will help you to comfortably get through the adaption process so you can enjoy all the benefits of the Ketogenic way of eating.
With a competent approach, a ketogenic diet can yield fantastic results. New research has found that Keto diet as a low-carb diet might burn 10 times more fat than other diets. Also, it helps to achieve extreme performance, crystal clarity of mind and a lot of other health benefits, many of which scientists are just beginning to study under a microscope.
At the same time as you could understand, people starting the Keto diet would experience flu-like symptoms, such as headaches and fatigue. This side effect is so common that there’s a name for it: the keto flu. You shed a ton of water weight at first, which can lead to dehydration. This can worsen the symptoms of the keto flu. To counter it, we recommend staying hydrated and loading up on electrolytes through electrolyte additives.
You should replenish your body with a sufficient number of electrolytes: salts, potassium, magnesium.
Deficiency of electrolytes
Electrolytes are important on any diet, but for ketogenic they become absolutely critical. Moreover, we would say that electrolytes are the main reason for early fail on a ketogenic distance. If you do not have enough sodium (salt), magnesium and potassium, you will suffer from headaches, loss of strength, constipation, drowsiness and inhibition – in other words, all the symptoms of the so-called “keto-flu” – and eventually you will give up.
We also recommend taking the Keto Salts additionally in the form of food additives.
Ketone salts are carefully formulated and contain the actual ketone beta-hydroxybutyrate bound to sodium, calcium, and magnesium and can increase ketone levels much higher than coconut or MCT oil and could bring about even more improvement. Using ketone salts could be part of the overall strategy to raise ketones, keeping coconut and MCT oil as the foundation too.
Ketone salts are now widely used by people with a variety of conditions who are reporting positive responses, providing an alternative fuel to the brain and other organs.
One more good way to add in more minerals to your Ketogenic diet is to drink some bone broth – it contains sodium, potassium, and magnesium.
Bone broth is an easy way to sneak more water into your diet, and it also provides electrolytes, such as sodium and potassium.
All varieties of Kettle and Fire Bone Broth fit into the Keto diet macros nicely. And don’t forget to season your broth with good unprocessed sea salt or Himalayan salt.
