What You Need to Know About Keto
Ketogenic or keto diet has gained traction in recent years, widely talked about by celebrities and touted on social media as a remedy for various health ailments. In a nutshell, the keto diet is a diet that is high in healthy fats, moderate in protein and extremely low in carbohydrates. As a general rule, the macronutrient breakdown is typically around 75, 20, and 5 percent of our daily calories, respectively.
What are the health benefits?
By restricting carbohydrates, your body enters ketosis — a process in the body that burns fat for energy instead of glucose. When our bodies enter a ketogenic state, it means that we have created an ideal fat-burning situation.
What is the Keto Flu?
However, because of its restrictive nature, many may find the keto diet hard to stick to. People have reported feeling unwell after starting a keto diet, a phenomenon known as the “keto flu”. It is common for people starting the diet to experience symptoms such as headaches, fatigue, dizziness, nausea and brain fog. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and vary from person to person. The duration of keto-flu could range from 2 – 4 weeks and tends to wear off as one adapts to the low carb intake and keto diet’s continual benefits.
