Once you’re a week in full ketosis, I woke up like a new born human. However the flunctuation of carbs can offset that on days you eat a little bit kore carbs. To counteract that I’ve always taken a ketone supplement on those days to bring me back to level


I usually go keto for 6 weeks, and follow a low carb high protein diet for another 2-3 months. While I do keto, I’ll occasionally have cheat carb days and eat around 50-75 grams followed with some ketone supplements I usually never fall off cycle.


Energy was the best part honestly. I used to need coffee/ supplements before my morning workouts but found I was wide awake and energized from the get-go. I’d say I noticed it after a week


That's awesome, thanks for sharing!
Getting me pumped.

I need to cut down on stimulants


I remember having a lot of insomnia in the beginning. Make sure you are keeping up with your magnesium (and other electrolytes), especially if you are also working out.

Too sleepy or not sleeping well enough???

I started 4 weeks ago. I’ve been waking up early in the morning (5 or 6 am) feeling full of energy. Took probably 2 weeks to get there.

Perfect. OMAD. As long as I get enough sleep. It lasts all day without highs and lows that driven by glucose up and down.

Does anyone have itchy ears and have you found a solution? I’ve seen multiple ENTs and have tried ointments. I’ve seen a dermatologist and my primary. Nobody has been able to identify the problem. The inside of my ear itches as if someone were swiveling a feather in there slowly to torture me. Sometimes the skin flakes and peels out but usually it’s just dry and itchy and no skin ointment has helped.
