Common Side Effects

Headaches is a common side effect of Ketosis. 
It is very often the result of consuming fewer carbohydrates, especially sugar. Dehydration and electrolyte imbalance can also cause headaches. 
That's why it is important for you to follow our recommendation to drink at least 1.5 litres of water by day. If headaches persist, you can use pain killer to remedy. 
Ketosis headaches usually last from 1 day to 1 week, however some people may experience pain for longer. If your headaches persist, we do recommend you to see your Doctor. 

Fatigue and weakness are often first side effect of following a slimming diet.
When you start a Ketogenic diet, your body enter in Ketosis: it switches from burning carbohydrates to burning fat for energy. Carbohydrates provide a quicker burst of energy to your body. The fatigue occurs as your body is burning fat. You will feel more tired and weaker than usually at the beginning of the slimming diet. Most of the people notice an increase in energy levels after several weeks on the diet. 

Bad breath is the Most common side effect of Ketosis. The reason is the Ketones: they leave your body through the breath as well as the urine. The Ketone called acetone is usually the one responsible of the odor, same as Benzophenone and Acetophenone that will both contribute to bad breath. It may improve with time. We recommend you to use sugar free gum to mask the odor.

About Ketosis

Ketosis is a natural metabolic process in which your body burns stored fats rather than glucose (sugar) as it main source of energy, because it doesn't have enough glucose, and glucose is derived from carbohydrates and sugar. This results in a build-up of acids called Ketones within the body. You enter Ketosis by following a diet called the Ketogenic Diet or Low carb Diet. The Aim of the Diet is to reduce carbohydrate (50 grams per day max) and sugar. When you are in Ketosis, your body doesn't have enough carbohydrates to burn for energy, so it will burn stored fat and fat from the food you eat. Ketogenic diet (being in ketosis) is far more beneficial method to lose weight as many diets sacrifice muscle for energy rather than fat. Ketosis is the most effective way to lose weight long term as it helps to control your hunger too.
