Sodium & Potassium And The Ketogenic Diet

The ketogenic diet eliminates carbohydrate-rich foods, replacing them with those high in fats and proteins. The absence of carbohydrates forces your body to burn fat for energy, converting some to ketones, which fuel your brain. The diet is commonly implemented by health-care professionals to help lessen the occurrence of epileptic seizures in patients and by individuals seeking weight loss. Ensuring sodium and potassium intake is sufficient during a ketogenic diet might help lessen negative effects on your body. Video of the Day About the Ketogenic Diet The ketogenic diet typically consists of meats, high-fat dairy, oils, low-carbohydrate fruits, eggs and vegetables. That excludes common foods such as potatoes, peas, corn, bread, crackers, milk, rice and sugar. The meals eaten on a ketogenic diet differ widely from what is considered normal by most individuals. To prevent deficiencies, including sodium and potassium, nutritional supplements are usually incorporated in the ketogenic diet. By depriving your body of carbohydrates, its main energy source is forced to change. While this has the potential of decreasing physical performance, proper sodium and potassium intake combats thi Continue reading >>

    Yesterday I had eaten roughly 70 g of complex carbs, roughly working out on treadmills 12min, cross trainer 15mins, rower 10 mins, cycle for 15 mins, 24 pushups and supported pull ups roughly 10(roughly 1:30 -45 hr). Before start of another round of pull ups i totally got tired and unconscious, i had to take some help in laying down.
    Its been my 4th Day of the start of keto Diet.
    Please let me know whats went wrong?
    Also if i had to do same workout tomorrow so if i increase my carbs up to 100g, considering the workout i do unmodified will it help me to move towards ketosis?

    Thanks in advance.

    Did you pass out, or just feel faint and have to sit down.
    If the former then that’s something you should discuss with your doctor. I’d suggest they look into your blood pressure under exercise load and look into electrolyte supplementation.
    If the latter, I had the same experience for the first couple of weeks. I used to cycle to the gym (15 min) and I’d be fine, and then about 10 mins in to a PT session (Cardio and light weight bearing like yours 2x a week, heavy lifting 2x a week) I would feel like someone had pulled my cord out of the socket and I had to sit down on a step for just 5 secs and then I was good to go for 5 mins before I’d get the sensation again.
    In my case I was hypertentive before keto and normotensive after - so the problem was likely that I was drawing through my limited reserves of energy in my muscles and my transports to get more in weren’t keeping pace with demand. That got gradually better until I became better adapted to using fat for energy.

    You do realise that under 20g of carbs is the recommended amount to get into ketosis? If you’re consuming as many as 70g - 100g a day then it unlikely any of your symptoms will be connected to keto as the chance of you being in ketosis are very small.

    Are you used to that amount of work in the gym? Is it possible you just pushed yourself too hard?
