Keto Diet – What to Expect while on the Ketogenic Diet
If you are on a normal diet, your body is used to the routine
of breaking down carbohydrates and using them as energy.
Over time the body has built up an arsenal of enzymes ready
designed to process carbs and only has a few enzymes for
processing fats – mostly to store them.
Once you switch your eating habits all of a sudden your body
has to deal with the lack of glucose and increase in fats,
which means building up a new supply of enzymes designed
to process the healthy fats.
As your body moves into a ketogenic state it will naturally
use what’s left of your glucose first. This means your body
will be depleted of all glycogen in the muscles, which can
cause a lack of energy, and a general lethargy. In the first
few weeks, some people report:
– Feeling tired
– Flu-like symptoms (known as the “keto-flu”)
Most of the time, this is the result of your electrolytes being
flushed out of your body (getting rid of the bad) as ketosis
has a diuretic effect. Make sure you drink plenty of water and
keep your sodium intake up. In fact, you should go
overboard with the salt –EVERYTHING! This will help with
water retention, and help replenish the electrolytes.
For a normal person starting a ketogenic diet eating 25-40g
of net carbs a day the process will take about 2 weeks. To
jumpstart your journey cut your carbs to fewer than 15g to
make sure that you are well on your way into ketosis within 1
