Some people may experience keto flu, which includes symptoms like fatigue, headache, and nausea. It's temporary and can be managed by staying hydrated and getting enough electrolytes.
For many people, the keto diet can improve cholesterol profiles by increasing HDL ('good') cholesterol and decreasing triglycerides. However, individual responses may vary.
Many people combine intermittent fasting with the keto diet for enhanced results. Fasting periods can help deplete glycogen stores and speed up the process of entering ketosis.
Cheat days can disrupt ketosis and slow down your progress. If you choose to have a treat, opt for keto-friendly options to minimize the impact on your carb intake.
Counting macros (carbs, fats, and proteins) can be helpful to ensure you're staying within your desired keto ratios. However, some people find success without strict tracking.
