CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – The keto diet has been around for centuries, but has recently become popular again. There are some common mistakes that you want to avoid if you want to follow a keto diet.
The keto diet is a low carbohydrate, high fat diet. If you have been told by your doctor to follow a keto diet, avoid these three common mistakes.
Bug number one does not drink enough water. Your body loses water because it flushes out the ketones. Drink water all day long.
Drinking water all day leads to error number 2: too little sodium. If you have to drink so much, you also lose sodium. You may need to salt your food.
Bug # 3 is not preparing for keto flu. In the first two weeks, many people get muscle cramps, nausea, pain and fatigue.
It's a difficult diet to follow and not safe for everyone. If you decide to refrain from the keto diet, you should definitely get help from a dietitian without losing weight.
