Learn one of the essential steps and outwit the keto flu with this homemade electrolyte drink.
- The #1 Contributor To The Keto Flu Is Dehydration
- Drinking Water Isn't Enough
As your body burns through your glycogen stores, it sheds water from the muscles. Essential minerals are shed along with this water. Learn more about the keto flu by watching the video at the end of this blog post where I cover a number of things that are helpful to understand about the keto flu.

What Electrolytes Can Do For You On A Ketogenic Diet
Prevent Muscle Cramps
Muscle cramps are a common complaint when eating a high fat ketogenic diet. These may become especially prevalent during and after workouts due to magnesium and potassium depletion.
Prevent Keto Flu Symptoms
In “The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living”, it is recommended we add 2-3 grams of salt (sodium) to our diet daily. This is especially important if you workout or are in a hot climate. An electrolyte drink is a clean and easy way to work towards this goal.
This is why I developed this quick DIY electrolyte drink which I drink daily to support my ketogenic diet.
