In this video, we’re going to talk about the best foods for the keto flu.

The keto flu isn’t quite like having influenza—it doesn’t involve an infection or virus. Instead, it is the result of low electrolytes while your body adapting to ketosis.

Symptoms of the keto flu include:

• Lethargy

• Weakness

• Aches

• Brain fog

• Nausea

• Headaches

The best remedies for the keto flu are:

• Salty foods (add sea salt!)

• Bone broth

• Foods high in potassium

• Greens + sea salt

• Avocado + sea salt

In summary, the cause of the keto flu is a deficiency or imbalance of electrolytes, including sodium and potassium.

When you first start Healthy Keto and intermittent fasting, one to two of your meals should include a large salad or other vegetables with sea salt. This will help replenish your potassium and sodium.

Avocados with sea salt are one of my favorite things to have for low potassium and sodium.
