Hello all, I’m new to the forum but sure glad I found it!
Am I going through the Keto Flu?
On Thursday I started feeling really fatigued. But I thought it was due to working on my truck in the brutal Texas heat…although it was only late afternoon when I started (90 degrees’ish?).
Woke up Friday AM preparing to go out of town for a quick weekend getaway but had to get my truck running, so more work in the now 100 degree heat while feeling tired from the night before. I’m 49 btw. Got finished and ate a grilled chicken breast from Chik-fil-a and almost immediately threw it up. Took an hour nap. Was exhausted after that, but we packed and left for the cabin. Got there late and went to bed.
Saturday spent 6 hours in the local pool having fun. Got home and was completely wasted. Zero energy and a little sun burned but not really bad at all. But I was so weak, I went to bed at 8pm while my wife and kids wen t and played at the lake a little more.
I slept all night and woke up at 8am this morning. Definitely have some more energy back. Nothing like last night or Friday, but I’m taking it easy and not sure how much I have yet.
So, is this Keto flu I’ve heard about? Can one actually FEEL when one switches from burning sugar to burning fat?
Or was it something from that chicken breast I ate? Or exhaustion from working in the heat?
