In this video I discuss Keto cramps. Those annoying cramps that usually happen in your foot or calves and usually late at night. They can also happen if you are exercising. Electrolytes become more important on the Ketogenic Diet.
I explain some of the causes of cramps, how to deal with them and some things you can do to prevent Keto Cramps. No diet is perfect, and these cramps can happen on any diet. We are particularly vulnerable on Keto because we do not hold as much water weight. Electrolytes are stored in the water in our body, less water weight equals less storage.
Many try to drink a lot of water. Problem is most modern water sources are devoid of the minerals we need daily. Does this mean Keto is bad for you? No, it means like any diet, you need to pay attention to the foods you eat and don't eat, and your sources of electrolytes, sodium, magnesium and potassium
