Symptoms Of Ketosis:

If you are considering the ketogenic diet or have already started down this carb-free road, you may wonder what you can expect. Here’s the thing. Ketosis looks different for everyone, but I will share many of the most common symptoms with you today. If something other than what’s listed here is happening to you, just do a quick Google search for that symptom and keto. You should be able to find what you’re looking for! The Early Signs: The early signs of ketosis vary from person to person. The biggest impact on how quickly you notice the symptoms of ketosis will have a lot to do with how you ate before you started the diet. If your diet was very high carb, you might get hit pretty quickly and furiously with what we like to call the “Keto Flu.” This can last anywhere from 3 days to a week or more. Once your body has adapted to burning ketones for energy instead of glucose, you’ll be golden so don’t give up! Here’s what you can expect within the first 2-3 days of starting the Ketogenic Diet: Fatigue & Weakness (lack of concentration) Headaches Metallic taste or sweet taste in your mouth (I experienced this, and it tasted like blood in my mouth) Lightheaded / Dizzy upo Continue reading >>

    Jacque- I'd love to know the answer to this question, too! Years ago when I first started taking (lots of) meds for hypertension, I had that taste in my mouth all the time! I was pretty ill at the time, and was losing weight like crazy (ended up at 118, which is small for me). Just generally unwell due to adjustments to meds. I asked the doctor about it several times, and he didn't have an answer (except to treat me as if it was all in my imagination)... Eventually adjusted, and started feeling well again, but from time to time the taste comes back for a few days. I always thought it was related to the meds, but now I wonder if it might be related to the rapid weight loss, change in foods, or as you mentioned-ketosis... Hmmm, it will be interesting to hear what others think... Thanks for bringing it up. Tess.....

    It probably is ketosis. Some CADers get into ketosis better than they ever did on Atkins due to the control of insulin. Remember, CAD fools your body that the carbs at RM aren't there.
