Feeling Tired on Keto?

Feeling Tired on Keto?

October 16, 2020

Did you start your ketogenic diet, thinking you would have an insane amount of energy because of your new eating habits? Energy levels are an indicator of how healthy you may be. Without the right amount of energy, you may not have the will to keep going.

In the early stages of Keto, your body is in the adaption phase. You are trying to adjust to all the dietary changes happening. The length of the process can differ in individuals, but eventually, your body will adapt to the diet. Remember, your body is transiting from burning glucose as fuel to fatty acids and ketones. 

If you can manage the adaption phase, you can improve your energy level. The main contributor to your depletion during Keto is the adoption phase. In this article, we will provide some tips on managing your energy levels while on Keto.

Increase in Fat Intake

Your body is in a transitional stage; you have to get accustomed to burning a larger proportion of fat to fuel you. This can be tricky because you have to burn off enough available energy to keep you active. Eventually, once your body has adapted, you can lower your fat intake if you desire. You can’t move a car without fuel, and the same can be said for your body. In this case, fat is gas, and your body is the car. 

Find the Right Keto Supplements

Vitamins and supplements are essential even when you’re not on Keto. Still, you should make sure you are taking supplements daily while on the diet. Supplements can regulate your body and give you the necessary nutrition you may need. Some of the essential supplements to take during Keto are:

MCT oil or MCT powder 

BHB exogenous ketones 

Keto electrolytes 

Magnesium

 

Move Your Body

Just because you’re on Keto doesn’t mean you should stop exercising. Exercise is an excellent way to supplement your diet but also increase your energy levels. If you feel tired, a lack of exercise will only make the situation worse. A simple walk around your neighborhood will do wonders for your absence of energy. Getting your body moving will force you to adjust faster than it would if you were just laying on the couch.
