I’ve been doing keto for about 10 days now. I’m 58 and I’m about 100 pounds overweight, I am diabetic and have insulin resistance.
I’ve definitely had the keto flu since starting. My macros are as per what I see on here. I drink lots of water (about 3 litres/day), I have bone broth every morning, I use electrolytes and sea salt. I eat a lot of leafy greens and my diet is mostly organic and very healthy. I’m consistent with the 20 grams of carbs.
I am in ketosis - the last few days I’ve been about 1.0 mmol and today my fasting blood ketones were 1.2, yet I still feel so crappy. So fatigued, weak, spacey, depressed. Is it normal to still feel this way even once I am in ketosis? I have been reading and it says it can take a while to get fat=adapted, but wasn’t sure if I should be feeling this bad at this point. I realize everyone reacts differently, but would like to hear any feedback or from others that had a similar experience. Thank you.
