Keto flu

This absolutely sucks.  My appetite is gone and my energy level is really low.  I’d been warned to stay away from strenuous physical activity, but I attended three dance classes this morning.  I could hardly keep up by my third class.  By 3 p.m., I had a hard time keeping my eyes open and my son Sebastian kept pulling my arms up to get up and play with him.

Eric and I started the keto diet on Tuesday evening upon our return from Montreal.  It’s been three full days and we’re almost halfway through a full week.  Supposedly, the first week is the hardest as your body adjusts from using energy from sugar to burning fat for energy.

We are now experiencing what I think is the keto flu, but apparently there are ways to cope with it as your body adjusts to not depending on a high carb diet.  Here are some suggestions.

Did you know you can eat this and this while on this diet?  My next mission: to find some yummy recipes and hope to charge through our committed two months!
