Are you new to keto? Or have you tried keto and experienced symptoms like muscle cramps, headaches, brain fog, dizziness, or fatigue? Then this article is for you.
In the decades that I’ve been educating on how to achieve success on a low-carb diet, the keto flu is undoubtedly the #1 reason folks “fail” on keto. And while the keto flu is very easy to overlook, it is just as easy to prevent.
Keto Flu Symptoms
WHAT CAUSES THEKETO FLU?
The ketogenic diet is diuretic in nature - meaning that your body excretes electrolytes at an increased rate.
While the keto flu is the body’s natural reaction to a ketogenic diet, suffering from it is not a forgone conclusion. You can mitigate, or even wholly avoid, the keto flu by listening to the advice my coaches gave me: “You need more electrolytes - ESPECIALLY SALT.”
Decreased Carb Intake
Lower Insulin Levels
You need to pay as much attention to your electrolytes as you do your food.
How to Avoid the Keto Flu
Fortunately, the keto flu can be reduced within 15-30 minutes of properly replacing electrolytes. In general, you should be consuming electrolytes at the levels below. It’s worth noting that these are generic ranges and that your exact level of optimal electrolyte intake will be affected by things like age, body mass, daily activity, and hot weather. If you can relate to any of the symptoms above, there is a good chance your electrolytes are out of balance.

We developed LMNT Recharge because we were frustrated with the lack of healthful electrolyte products on the market. We were fielding questions daily from people in our communities struggling to get adequate electrolytes, but the hard truth is that available electrolyte products are high in sugar and woefully lacking in actual electrolytes. We created LMNT Recharge to to provide an option for these people and was formulated based on the latest nutritional science.
Each stick pack 1,000 mg of sodium, 200 mg of potassium, and 60 mg of magnesium. What you DON'T consume is as important as what you DO consume, so LMNT Recharge will NEVER contain sugar, artificial ingredients, gluten, fillers, or other BS ingredients.
