Keto Flu Symptoms: Do This Before Starting A Keto Diet

I remember when I first started on my keto diet journey almost 2 years ago. I never heard anything about a keto flu until I was in the mist of going through it myself. Some things were not that bad, others were kinda strange…lol… But when it’s all said and done, you may experience a couple or maybe even multiple keto flu symptoms when starting out. So I wanted to touch on a few symptoms that I went through as well as those that I’ve worked with. I also want to give you a few tips on what you can do before starting a ketogenic diet or if you’re already experiencing keto flu symptoms to minimize the affects. What is Keto Flu? The keto flu is when you’re going through withdrawals from not eating carbohydrates. When you first start a ketogenic diet, you’re body will be in sort of a shock stage. Being that we are conditioned from birth to depend on glucose as a fuel source, our body is kinda confused on what’s happening. So when we become carb depleted, it’s natural to feel weary or have brain fog. Because we’ve depleted our glycogen storage, our body is forced to use fat as its primary source of fuel but it has to learn how to do it. You’re not going to keto adapt Continue reading >>

    I wasn’t sure which section I should post this in, my strategy is what I call the 4–2–1 plan, I fast 2 day non consecutive days a week, eat a low carb but not calorie restricted diet 4 days a week to keep the fat burning benefits of ketosis going and then I give myself 1 day a week to indulge and eat whatever I want, usually a Saturday pasta dinner and wonderful dessert. I also walk 4 to 6 miles a day during the week and 10 to 12 miles on Saturday.
    Low Carb plans such as Atkins can be very effective for some people including me, many people who start a low carb diet experience get what’s called the “ketosis flu” or the “induction flu” in the first few days while the body is adapting to burning ketones instead of glucose.
    The basic symptoms are:
    – Headaches
    – Nausea
    – Upset stomach
    – Lack of mental clarity (brain fog)
    – Sleepiness
    – Fatigue
    It’s called the “ketosis flu” for a reason: you feel sick. I’ve gone through it and it wasn’t a pleasant experience. Fortunately it only lasted 2 days but then suddenly I woke up feeling much better, less hungry and my energy level was really high and consistent throughout the day!
    The first time I thought to myself: “What the heck am I doing? I feel like I’m going to die!” but I persevered and when it was over I didn’t regret a thing because what I had gained mentally and physically was 100% worth it.
    For those of you that are going through the ketosis flu, don’t give up! I know you feel like it’s never going to get better but stick with it and you´ll be so happy you did! I’m telling you, waking up refreshed for the first time in years, not getting the afternoon “blah” feeling and stuffing my face with carbs to try to boost my energy is the best side effect of the low carb diet I’ve experienced. Okay, losing weight while eating good food, feeling full and satisfied is great too.
    First you have to understand why your body is reacting this way. Your body’s been burning glucose for energy so it’s basically full of enzymes that are waiting to deal with the carbs you eat, but now the body needs to make new enzymes that burn fat for fuel instead of carbs, and the transition period causes the flu-like symptoms.
    There are some things you can do to lessen the symptoms of the ketosis flu and to make it go away sooner (to force the body to transition sooner) Ok, let’s get to the good part – what to do:
    First of all – you’re probably dehydrated. Drink PLENTY of water while you’re on a low carb diet, and then drink some more.
    Watch your electrolytes. When the body is getting rid of excess insulin from your former carb-crazy diet you´ll lose lots of fluids that have been retained in your body. This causes the rapid weight loss most people see in their first few days of ketosis, it’s mostly water, sorry. When you lose all the retained water you also lose electrolytes like sodium, magnesium and potassium. When you’re lacking them you´ll feel like crap so when you’re feeling really ill on the ketosis flu try things like chicken/beef broth and look for foods rich in these minerals. Take a multi-vitamin and a multi-mineral.
    Ok, here is where people throw the red flag – Eat more fat – Yup, I said MORE fat. Have some butter, just not on a roll, eat some bacon and eggs for breakfast, just skip the potatoes and toast. This will force your body to hurry up the transition. You´ll think this is crazy and think you´ll never get lose weight eating this way, but you will.
    Don’t eat too much protein – The body can transform protein into glucose so if you eat too much of it in the first days it will slow down the transition. Go for fatty meat and cheese if you can, add fat to protein shakes etc.
    Drink water, replenish electrolytes (sodium, magnesium, potassium) with food and supplements, drink broth, eat fat and not too much protein.
    I hope this helps, and have a great day

    ” Take a multi-vitamin and a multi-mineral.”
    I have been forgetting to take a multi-vitamin on fast days. Thanks for the reminder.
    “Eat more fat – Yup, I said MORE fat. ”
    I will have avocado more often.

    Sounds like the Keto flu to me. The burny throat and nausea sound mildly out of place, but everybody is different so i wouldn't worry about it.
    It usually hits me sooner. Like the next day after starting. The good news is that if you're already on day two, it shouldn't last long.

  2. ClaribelLune

    It usually hits me on the 2nd or 3rd day. It does indeed feel like the 9th level of Hell, but if you drink tons of water and take some sodium (I use chicken broth) that should help alleviate the symptoms.

  3. IamIncogneato

    1-3 days. You'll feel out of it, lazy, sleepy, just have some coffee, eat something salty or drink broth, and have lots of water.

Ideally, you haven't jumped into the ketogenic diet overnight and have you slowly lowered your carbs and added fats and were gentle on your body. Click here to watch my video about how to ease into a Ketogenic lifestyle: https://youtu.be/SQmnatHONGE But since I know a lot of us will not follow the advice because we're little rebels and we want to do things our way, here is a piece of advice for you to follow to avoid flu symptoms caused by glycogen depletion in the blood stream: - Take 2 potassium supplement pills immediately after you start feeling tired, dizzy or your heart starts slowing down or pounding too fast. - Draw a hot bath and add a few cups (or a whole bag) of Epsom Salts (Magnesium Sulfate). - Grind 5 extra Potassium pills and throw them into the bath tub (these pills are very weak only 99mg when the daily recommendation for potassium by our government is 4,700... not sure if our government studied nutrition or not). - Sprinkle some magnesium onto your upper arms and rub thoroughly while your bath is drawing. - Add 40 drops of Trace Minerals onto an 8oz glass of water and drink it. This will stop your keto flu symptoms in 10 minutes or less. Trust me, I've gone throug

How Long Does A Keto Flu Last?

The ketogenic diet comes with the caveat of experiencing the keto flu. The keto flu can stop you from getting into ketosis quickly as it may place a psychological barrier in from of you preventing you from continuing with the diet. Here’s a basic outline on why keto flu occurs and the simple and effective steps you can take to minimise the negative effects. The keto flu is generally a sign that the ketogenic diet is working. There are some measures you can take to firstly, speed up how quickly you get into ketosis and secondly reduce the symptoms of the keto flu.

The keto flu describes the symptoms (flu-like) which come when people transition from using glucose as their primary source of fuel to ketones as their primary source of fuel. The body may fail to quickly enough as it struggles to use the dramatic change in macronutrient ratios effectively.
