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.

10 Minute Workouts I Love

I pay for a gym membership that I use do not use regularly. But I realized something recently; the reasons I don’t go may be legitimate but they don’t need to be final answers. How else can I accomplish the same thing but make it work in my life with the schedule I have, right now? I can work out from home and it doesn’t need to cost anything or take up an incredible amount of time! Some type of workout is better than no workout right?

I follow a keto lifestyle which means that regular cardio exercises aren’t really what I need to do. The best thing for this type of lifestyle is to do some weight training. Did you know that your own body weight counts as weight training… um, yeah. So I found a couple YouTube videos posted by Pamela RF that I think are just amazing.

She doesn’t spend any time talking, at all. She just starts doing the exercise, a 30 second clock starts to countdown, and you work out for 10 minutes. For real, I’ve felt more burn and experienced more sweat from these two videos than from anything else I have done in at least a year.

Check out the playlist I made of my favorites so far:
