What Is Keto Flu?
More often than not we need to get a little uncomfortable to reap the benefits of healthy changes. That is almost certainly the case for most people who take a step over to the low-carb side.
Depending on how hard and fast you go with a low carb approach, it’s common to feel a little “off” for a few days. In some circles, this response is called “Keto Flu.” If a flu-like reaction happens for you, don’t panic, take it easy. This is part of the process of your metabolism becoming fat-adapted.
I was interview on “Keto Flu” for both Shape.com and Bodyandsoul.com.au. Our top tips from Julia’s article for Shape.com are:
- Hydrate with liquids high in electrolytes.
- Take OTC meds if needed.
- Take it easy.
- Check in with your doctor or dietitian.
