Electrolytes, Water & The Keto Diet

Whether you’re new or old to the whole keto diet thing, you need to know about electrolytes.

What are they? Sodium, Potassium, & Magnesium

When eating a ketogenic diet it’s very possible to become dehydrated and to deplete your electrolytes. Signs your electrolytes are low: Headaches, Muscle Cramps, Fatigue, Nausea, Constipation.

You can also experience some of those symptoms when you aren’t drinking enough water. All those carbs you use to eat? They held water. So, while embarking on this lifestyle we want to make sure that you stay hydrated and keep those electrolyte levels up.

In this video I mention a few different ways you can do this:

  1. Electrolyte Tablets // https://amzn.to/2Bzsavm
  2. Foods You Consume
  3. Vitamin Supplements // https://amzn.to/2N7xYko

Most people do some type of mix of the above list, but it is possible to keep your levels in tact through food consumption only. You need to do what works for you and your body.
