Stuck in a slump?
Are you struggling with keeping up on your keto diet?
Don't fret. This is normal as your body is adjusting to it's new lifestyle.
Some common side effects are headaches, cramps, constipation, flu, heart palpitation, bad breath, lethargy.
Feeling lost and confused is also normal.
These symptoms are normal as expected and will be gone after a few days or a couple of weeks.
What can you do to avoid these symptoms or curb them if you already have them?
Consume enough water, fat and salt. It is assumed that the cause of most side effects is due to dehydration.
It pays to pay attention to being hydrated and providing your body with enough electrolytes to help prevent side effects.
It is recommended as well to watch your salt intake, and replace what you lose when starting on a keto diet.
Another thing to keep in mind is if in the first few weeks you are unable to fully eliminate the symptoms, stick with the diet a bit longer.
Your body is adapting and reacting to changes, be patient with it.
Your hard work will pay off and your condition will likely improve the net few days.
