Listen to your body
While some keto diets are strict, Hannah recommends always putting what the body needs first to avoid any unnecessary health issues.
“If you are hungry or feeling low on energy, eat a keto friendly snack,” she said.
“Make sure you eat regularly through the day and listen to what your body needs.
“This can lead us to reach for carb heavy convenience food to lift our mood and banish the hunger.”
Make sure you get enough sodium
Eating less processed foods on a keto diet can lower the body’s sodium level and Hannah revealed this knocks electrolytes “out of balance”.
She said: “Sodium plays an important role in regulating our internal water balance, too little sodium can mean the body does not absorb water as well as it should causing issues like brain fog, fatigue, muscle cramps and stomach problems as well as causing the initial ‘keto flu’ side effects to be more intense.
“Keep everything in balance by adding a pinch of good quality salt like rock salt or Himalayan sea salt to your meals,” she told the Daily Record.
