Do you have questions that you think aren’t getting answered? Did you not feel well when you started – Too Much Too Fast????
There are some simple steps to help with getting started.
- Don’t simply go cold turkey because you risk the keto flu – whether you are doing keto or low carb – cutting out all the carbs on one day and starting the next day means you are susceptible to the keto flu. My recommendation is start slow. Get rid of one of the main carb categories that we always eat each day for the first 3 days and see if that doesn’t work better. So day 1 get rid of bread, day 2 get rid of pasta and potatoes and day 3 get rid of sweets. This allows your body to adapt to a new lifestyle slowly and you are not shocking it into submission. Also allows your brain to catch up that you are changing your lifestyle.
- Make sure that you have electrolytes and pink Himalayan salt in your cabinet. As you change your lifestyle there are little things that your body requires and you may have to supplement with at the beginning – magnesium and potassium and electrolytes are those three things. Electrolytes come in a powder form or you can just add electrolyte water. Sometimes I just put some pink Himalayan salt on my finger and take it down. I got headaches and the salt eliminated those headaches right away. Potassium comes from fish, leafy greens and avocados just to name a few.
- Frustration sometimes sets in in the first couple of days because we hear all the hype and we think that we are going to lose 10 pounds in a week and sometimes our body doesn’t respond that way. I say give your self a good dose of patience. The losses will come. You are probably going to see inches disappear before pounds so make sure you measure before you start.
- Taking a supplement can also help – I take Pruvit’s Keto Nat every day. This helped me not have to change my diet quite so fast and it puts me into ketosis in under an hour. The product is amazing and so easy to mix up and drink. Some of the extra benefits of the Pruvit product is the AC11 – which is DNA repair and it gives me the energy I need to make it through a day at work. The sleep is amazing – I think I like that part the best since I used to have to take sleeping pills to sleep.
