In this video, Dr. Berg talks about how to overcome keto flu. Keto flu is one of the symptoms of transitioning from sugar burning to fat burning. The Ketogenic Diet cause more sodium loss and the best solution is to drink when you are thirsty and include at least one teaspoon of sea salt every single day.
Symptoms of Keto Flu: (Low Sodium or Hyponatremia)
4. Muscle Weakness
7. Loss of Appetite
I want to create a short video on something called keto flu. As you are transitioning from sugar burning to fat burning sometimes you get this symptoms. What’s interesting is the symptoms from keto flu to actual flu which is virus are very similar. Headache, lethargy, fatigue, muscle weakness, chills, nausea, loss of appetite. Keto flu has nothing to do with virus. It really has to do with the symptoms of low sodium, its called hyponatremia. You don’t need to know that but it is basically low sodium. You can get this condition also by drinking too much water and not enough salt. So if you’re doing the ketogenic diet and drinking massive quantities of water that could actually speed up the loss of sodium and actually create more of these symptoms. Because in general the ketogenic diet does cause more sodium loss. So we don’t want to combine them with too much water. I think the best solution is to drink when you are thirsty and make sure you include at least 1 tablespoon of sea salt every single day. That’s going to be important to get rid of this symptoms, pretty fast especially if you have a headache if you are doing this. Now if you are salt sensitive or have high blood pressure and the doctors are saying “Oh you can’t do salt” another way to get your sodium is through baking soda and I don’t recommend this for everyone and especially it tends to be alkaline and it can dilute the stomach acid. But if you are gonna do this in the fasting period it will increase sodium but it will not increase blood pressure. So you would take at least 1/8 of a teaspoon a day, two to three times a day to get the sodium you need to get rid of these symptoms. Okay? But generally speaking I don’t recommend this but only in this situation. Alright, thanks for watching!
