Today we’re going to talk about Fatigued in the Keto diet, and when you’re doing in intermittent fasting, why would you possibly be tired when you’re doing this.

Keto diet supposed to give you energy right.
Please take a look at what’s occurring. We’re getting into the state of ketosis, so we’re trying to burn our fat. There’s a lot of energy in our fat cells. In other words, this fat will turn into ketones, and ketones theoretically have more energy than glucose per gram.
So that means there’s something wrong in machinery now when we convert from sugar fuel, the fat energy it usually takes about three days a little longer sometimes a little less of what we’re trying to do is convert into this new machinery where our bodies can easily burn fat. Then when you get into four days five days six days two weeks a month now, you’re burning fat.
The energy should increase with Keto diet.
Unless there are hidden sugars, okay if you’re having a cheat meal every other day or having little carbohydrates as snacks or even protein in between the meal that could keep your blood sugars up and down.
and prevent you from getting into the full ketosis.
So you have full energy.So this is one thing to look at right here
The next thing I’m going to talk about is EMF. Even though it’s not necessarily related to your diet, it’s something important because I noticed a lot of people sitting from the computer way too.
Long so they have their computer their screen their cell phone it’s giving off electromagnetic fields when they go to bed at night some of the electrical wires in the wall could be right at your the head of your bed.
I will say that this will make you tired as well, and this is causing fatigue, and you keep changing your diet.
This won’t work.
You have to find out what’s causing the fatigue so at this point we’re going to pretend that this is not a problem and we’re going to focus on your diet but let’s say you work all this out and you still have fatigue take a look at this, make some changes there’s a lot of
But reducing the amount of exposure to this can significantly increase your energy, especially in your head.
Now the next thing we’re going to talk about is the key to fatigue because that’s what we’re talking about.
there could be certain nutrients that you’re missing in your diet because when you do keto, and you’re burning more fat your body requires certain nutrients more than others the big one is b5, and b5 is intimately involved in supporting your adrenal glands, and the production of energy and so nutritional yeast would provide this very nicely kind dietary yeast that’s why I’m going to recommend because not only will it provide b5, but it’ll also offer D which is b
okay, b1 deficiency, which is very common, especially with.
Keto and without keto will make you tired, and also, it makes you nervous, restless leg syndrome is one symptom, but it could give you some fatigue if you don’t have enough of this, but if you take nutritional yeast, you can kill two birds with one stone.
Okay, be having enough potassium and sodium.
Okay, when you’re on keto and in minute fasting, you need a little bit
more sodium and chloride okay salt, and I recommend sea salt I’m not going to get into why but you need more and if you’re deficient in salt that right there can make you tired.
Now there’s a little pump in all of your cells and is called the sodium-potassium pump. You have billions of these little pumps in
every section, and the main job of this pump is to keep the potassium inside the cell and the sodium outside the cell to form a little battery to power the nervous system and the muscular system.
So without enough potassium and sodium, the nerves and the muscles will fatigue, and that right there will make you tired, and so when you’re on a ketogenic diet. You’re not consuming enough of let’s say vegetables you’re not going to get enough potassium or let’s say you’re not consuming enough salt then this thing also won’t work so you need a good amount of potassium 7 to 10 cups of vegetable and about 1 level teaspoon of sea salt, and that should help that right.
There should handle your fatigue, but also magnesium could be deficient, and that’s a real common deficiency with a lot of people this is intimately involved in making ATP energy currency of the body.
So you need magnesium well it just so happens when you’re consuming vegetables you’re also getting magnesium so you can kill two birds with one stone you can also take these as an electrolyte powder and a lot of people.
Will instantly start feeling more energy simply because their body has been deficient in these minerals.
