Keto flu could set in between days 3-7, could end anywhere from days 5-14, and fat adaptation could begin from day 10-21.
I personally experienced a bit of keto flu, from around days 3-6 of my high-fat journey. I just felt exhausted!! I decided on those days to have a bit more carbs–so I had a cup of berries on those days. After day 6 though, I felt AMAZING.
It will pass–just be sure to make some keto lemonade, drink plenty of water, and salt your foods! And if you need a few more carbs while your body adjusts, that’s fine! It’ll take longer to get into ketosis, but dude what’s the rush? Listen to your body =)
Did you experience keto flu?
