Eating Keto with Sisel Thin
There is an awful lot of information out there, good and bad, about ketosis. To help clear up misconceptions and address a few common concerns, here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
Is Keto for everyone?
While most adults would likely benefit from ketosis, every human body is different and it may not be the best or the safest route for everyone. It is always recommended to visit with a physician before a major lifestyle change, especially if you have any significant health concerns.
Will I feel sick on a Keto diet?
Some individuals may experience slight feelings of sickness, commonly called the “Keto flu”, which usually comes on between 2-7 days after starting a Keto diet. Symptoms can include headaches, foggy brain, fatigue, irritability, and nausea. The Keto flu occurs due to the long-term depletion of carbs and typically lasts only a few days before going away. There’s nothing dangerous or life-threating about it, and some people may not even experience it at all depending on their genetics.
If you do have a predisposition for the Keto flu, SiselTHIN’s BHB combo, and caffeinated products – like SiselSPORT, Fire & Ice, and SiselKaffe – are great resources for combating the symptoms and getting you through it. Once you’re in full ketosis and ketones are fueling your body, not only should you feel like your old self again, but you should start feeling that sustained energy, focus, and mental clarity that so many Keto enthusiasts love.
Can I track ketosis?
While there are resources for tracking ketosis, like Keto strips, they can often be a bit unreliable. The best way to know whether you’re in ketosis or not is to simply pay attention to how your body and mind feels. If you’re cruising in ketosis, chances are you’ll easily be able to feel the difference in a positive way.
Is there a risk for nutritional deficiency?
It is totally possible to receive healthy, balanced nutrition while maintaining ketosis, but Keto is a somewhat restrictive diet and it can be a little harder to squeeze certain vitamins and minerals into the regimen. Supplementation is a good way to ensure you’re getting the nutrition you need. SiseLEAN, SpectraMAXX, and Encompass360 are three great Sisel products that are Keto-friendly and can help to that end.
