End Fatigue Naturally With Ketosis

Needing less sleep, having a clearer mind and being in a better mood have one thing in common: these are benefits of ketosis – and they happen fast. How ketosis energizes When keto clears the brain fog Why good moods happen on keto A main benefit of ketosis is lower insulin levels. Tiredness disappears and energy increases. Is Food Making You Tired? Low carb diets end fatigue simply because they are low in sugar. It’s that easy. Toss the sugar / starch, and toss the naps.

    I'm 8 days in and steadily progressing. Other than some small foot cramps on day 2, I have not experienced and of the headaches or other less desirable symptoms of Keto Flu. However, day 7 and day 8 (today) I seem to be a bit foggy, sluggish and less focused.

    For those of you that have experienced the brain fog piece, on average how long does that last.

    I didn't get serious about being ketogenic to the point of testing blood ketones for positive confirmation of ketosis, so I can't comment on my initial adaptation and the elimination of brain fog, but I can address the time periods when I've gotten out of ketosis and back in, which takes a solid 24 to 36 hours for the fog to clear up.

    I'd say that if you're 8 days in and only now experiencing brain fog, it might be coming from something else such as stress in any form such as lack of sleep, etc. and abnormal cortisol levels. That's as long as you've been keeping your carbohydrates below 20 grams - if not you might still be adapting. You could also be getting sick or just not sufficiently hydrated.

    Make sure you are drinking plenty of water. You might also need to up your salt and I would think about taking some magnesium too (citrate or glycinate best IMO).
