Easy Prevention of Keto Flu
Why do some people have so much trouble with “Keto Flu” and others seem to sail through.
I hate to tell you, but it’s your genetics.
But all is not lost. There are ways around it.
You have to figure out your body and how the foods you eat affect you. And how you combine foods may even have an impact.
It doesn’t have to be super complicated, so don’t get discouraged. Simply keep a food diary, with what you ate and then how you feel later. You’ll start to see patterns.
I use an app called MySymptoms. It lets me keep track of when I ate, then how many minutes or hours later, I would have a symptom.
I can’t eat Kale. I feel terrible after. A food diary will make that clear.
But back to why. Why does Keto flu hit everyone differently, or not at all?
Because of age, genetics, and Lifestyle. But we are interested in Easy Prevention of Keto Flu.
If you exercise a lot, you will probably experience few if any problems. Your body is used to moving toxins out. Plus, your hormones will be more in balance, and they pretty much rule everything.
If you are coming from eating a super high carb, sugar filled diet, you are going to have some keto flu. It really just means you needed the change of diet more than the next person. It’s a good thing, though it may not feel like it.
The main problem most people have, is metabolic inflexibility. The same way some people are just set in their ways, your body can be like that.
Remember, genetics plays a big role. Still there are things you can do.
- If you have been on a high carb, sugary diet, maybe don’t start Keto cold turkey. Add a step in the process before going full keto. You could spend a week cutting out sugar and high carb foods gradually. Kind of like a drug detox. Then, when you start your actual Keto diet, it won’t be a total shock to the system.
- Exercise. It will help everything. You don’t have to become an Olympic athlete. Just start walking, moving your arms, jump up and down a little. Anything that will move the blood around. Don’t hurt yourself, just move.
- Hydration. Lots of water, WITH ELECTROLYTES! This is super important. Broth is good also.
- Last, salt and minerals. Make sure they are in your food. Keto is not a low salt diet. (check with your doctor). Keto will drain salts and minerals and liquids from your body. Dehydration and loss of minerals will make you feel horribly drained and brain fogged.
I have been in the desert when I felt like I was literally dying. But a drink of water with electrolytes, and I was back to normal in a few minutes. It’s really that important.
That's as simple as you can get when talking about Easy Prevention of Keto Flu.
