In Module 3 is Keto for Everyone Robb says that it is not for everyone. That is the first time that I have heard a diet claim like that. All the diets that I have ever heard of tell you that they are the only one that will work for you. Which we all know is a bunch of bologna! Every person is different and what works for one person doesn’t work for another.
If you are pregnant or breastfeeding you have to make sure that you are eating enough because keto will make you feel not hunger. You need to keep that milk supply up. High stressed people may not find it works for them right now or maybe need to make a slow move into ketosis. For super workout people you may need more carbs than what the diet says is normal. You just have to learn what your body is telling you.
Another thing this one talked about was electrolytes. It is saying the FDA recommendations are far less than what you need daily. This is what Robb recommends, but he does say try to shoot for the higher end.
• 5000-7000 mg/day sodium
• 300-500 mg/day magnesium
• 1000-3500 mg/day potassium
I always thought that just athletes were the ones that needed all those electrolytes. You learn something new everyday.
He also said we should taking the minerals in a form that is easiest for our body to absorb. He recommends these:
• Sodium: sodium chloride
• Magnesium: choose magnesium citrate, glycinate or threonate. ***Avoid magnesium oxide—it’s been known to upset stomachs and cause frequent bathroom trips.
• Potassium: Potassium chloride or potassium citrate
He gave a couple of recipes to make your own electrolyte drinks that you can sip on all day. He also said you can get them from things like; pickle juice, bone broth with extra salt, bouillon and add a magnesium pill or salt stick vitassium. I will give a couple of these a try to let you know how they work out for me.
Also in the module what things might occur when going into Ketosis. In the beginning it could be rough the first few days as your body learns to burn fat instead of sugar. After this things start getting better. You start feeling better. Long term you body adjust to running on fat and life is good.
It also talked about rapid water loss. Yes, you will pee a lot. I may lose weight fat at first but just don’t get depressed when this stops because it was just the water. You will still loose weight but it might be at a slower rate.
The module also talked about problem and solutions to the diet. Most of the problems can be easily solved by adding more electrolytes to your day or drinking enough water.
It was an interesting module and I learned some new stuff. Let’s see what the next module teaches us.
Talk to you soon.
