One of the most important contributors to weight loss success, especially while on a ketogenic diet, is ensuring your bowels are healthy and regular.
The ketogenic diet is well-known to increase energy, improve concentration levels, and stabilize mood. Unfortunately, many people experience the opposite effects when first switching to a ketogenic diet. They feel exhausted, suffer from headaches, and are irritable. They go through the so-called keto flu.
Depending on your diet before starting a Ketogenic diet, people can experience changes in their bowels when they start out on Keto, particularly constipation.
But, there is no need to get concerned or stop a Ketogenic diet if you are experiencing this side effect, as there are a number of options available to clear your bowels and get you regular.
In the last few years, both the Ketogenic and low carb diets have come under a lot of scrutiny for supposedly trashing your thyroid; resulting in symptoms such as fatigue, sleep issues, and stalling weight loss. Is the solution to dive into a stack of carbohydrate-rich sweet potato pancakes?
Not necessarily – Let’s separate fact from fiction.
