Sorry if this is jumbled, my brain is pretty foggy. I’m 5 days in and the keto flu is hitting me pretty hard. I drink a cup of broth a day to keep my sodium up, but I feel positively sick. I’m using Myfitnesspal to track macros and so far I’ve been doing really well at hitting my daily goals and it’s really satisfying to keep at it, but today has been a real struggle.
I made a chicken taco soup with a side salad, and I barely touched it. It tastes good but I just feel so tired of eating, and my body feels exhausted. I know I need the calories, especially because I have a kick boxing class tonight, but I just do not want to eat. I’ve had maybe 400 calories today and I feel like I just can’t eat any more, this meaty, fatty food is so repulsive to me.
It doesn’t help that I’m not much of a meat eater to begin with, so hitting my 65gram protein goal every day is a real challenge. I’m already burnt out on bacon and chicken. If anyone has any good protein supplement tips it would be greatly appreciated!
Overall I know this is temporary and I’ll feel better soon, and I even have keto baking supplies on the way so I can make bread substitutes. I’m just really struggling today.
