When you’re going from sugar burning to fat burning, there is a transition phase that can last from 1 to 3 days to 3 to 4 weeks.
This all depends upon how glucose adapted your body is how used your body is to running on carbohydrates and sugar. You have to give your body time to adapt to burning FAT for fuel – ketones for fuel. Be patient. This WILL happen.
But keep in mind, you have to grow and develop whole new enzymes in the body to burn fat for fuel. So, if you’ve been a junk food, pasta, French fries, bagels, cereal, crackers, muffins, and Little Debbie’s junkie for decades, this might take some time.
As your body is adjusting, you may develop some symptoms such as:
Fatigue: This is usually a sign you need MORE B vitamins. I highly recommend nutritional yeast for this it’s packed with B vitamins and you can buy this anywhere online and in good food stores.
I don’t recommend a synthetic B complex. I do like nutritional yeast but make sure to get non-fortified nutritional yeast or it will have the synthetic vitamins.
Keto flu: This is typically a sign you need more potassium.
You need 7 to 10 cups to get that 4700 mgs of potassium you need, especially right now to fuel the body with energy. Eat more dark leafy greens like beet greens and Swiss chard and try my Wheatgrass Juice Powder. This is packed with potassium. Same with gout and kidney stones.
Weakness in the muscles: when you’re doing low carb, you need more sodium Sea salt. 1 teaspoon.
I put together a handy kit with all of these compounds to make sure you can easily adapt to burning ketones for fuel, get into ketosis, start burning fat, and losing weight.
The first product: A Nutritional Yeast in Tablet Form:
Most nutritional yeast is in a powder and it tastes horrible and clumps. It’s very hard to mix with food. Plus, most of it has synthetic vitamins. My Nutritional Yeast Complex is in a tablet form. It’s NOT fortified with synthetic vitamins, which your body cannot absorb fully, and added some natural B12 to make it a full B complex.
To make sure you get your potassium, I put together an electrolyte powder that has all the trace minerals, without the maltodextrin sugar added, and has 1,000 mgs of potassium citrate, the most highly available form of potassium.
Wheat Grass Juice Powder
I also put together a Wheat Grass Juice Powder. I tsp. is equal to an entire tray of wheatgrass. There are many benefits to the wheatgrass juice powder:
- 100% certified organic
- It’s raw
- 1 tsp = an entire tray of wheatgrass
- It neutralizes overly acidic urine, as being in ketosis makes you overly acidic
- Gives you tons of green nutrition and electrolytes.
The kit comes with 2 books which give you all the details to do this program correctly
- The New Body Type Guide
- It’s Not Lose Weight to Get Healthy, It’s Get Healthy to Lose Weight
These are quick reads, full of handy diagrams and pictures, to help you get all the knowledge you need to put your new program into ACTION.
