What is Keto Flu?

Not everyone experiences Keto flu, for those that do, this refers to a set of symptoms that people may experience when they start the keto diet. These are usually minor and short term, lasting between a few days to a week.

This is often due to a lack of salt. Using an electrolyte supplement or drinking a glass of water with half a teaspoon of salt stirred into it. This simple action may alleviate your keto flu symptoms within 15 to 30 minutes.

It is recommended that you aim to get in 10g of salt per day.  An easy way to know how much salt to use in a day is to add 10g (2 teaspoons) of salt to a small packet or container.  Then add salt to all your meals and your drinking water.  After a few days of this, you will have a good idea of how much to use throughout the day to achieve your salt intake requirement. 

In most cases, this simple inclusion of salt or electrolyte supplement will work.  Another option is to use an exogenous salt supplement, like Keto Fast-track. This will add ketones to your daily diet and make up the energy gap while you adjust to your new way of eating and still feel great.
