The Dietitians Association of Australia recently weighed in on the controversial diet and revealed the three things people need to consider before jumping on board the Keto bandwagon In a recent media alert, the DAA first explained the thinking behind the program and how it works. 'As fat is the main source of energy being consumed, the body must then use this (that is, break it down) as its main energy source or "fuel",' they explained. 'When dietary fat is metabolised for energy, by-products called "ketone bodies" (molecules that are made by the liver from fatty acids) are produced which are used up by the body’s tissues, muscles and the brain.

    Hello everyone,
    I have some questions regarding symptoms of the Keto flu.
    I have been experiencing the following for about 2 weeks, and I am not sure it they are typical symptoms of the Keto flu or something else.
    Runny nose. My nose has been dripping water for about 2 weeks. I am not sure if it is allergy related or if it might be linked to getting into Keto.
    Abdominal pain: Again for about 2 weeks I have a mild pain in the abdominal muscles (obliques and lower part of the 6 pack). In day to day, it doesn’t really affect me, just feel a slight pain when I move but at the gym it completelly prevents me from doing sit-ups or any abs exercises. When I try the pain shoots up and it feels like a muscle cramp. Keto related?
    Otherwise I have some general muscle fatigue and pain that I usually have when I work (I am a car detailer so I do some light cardio work for hours on end) and I started going to the gym so that doesn’t help either.
    I am not experiencing headache, coughing or anything serious.

    So what do you guys think?
