In this video, we’re going to talk about why you might be feeling tired while doing intermittent fasting and how to increase your energy levels.
When you go from a high-carb diet to a low-carb diet, there’s going to be a stage of keto-adaptation. This is where your body is switching from using glucose as your primary fuel source to using ketones as your preferred fuel source.
During this time, you can experience keto fatigue. You’re going to be tired until your body fully adapts.
The problem is, many people start adding in more carbs because they think it will help with the adaptation process. This only makes keto-adaptation more difficult. If you cut out the carbs, adaptation won’t drag out and leave you feeling tired and fatigued for so long. It can take up to a week for adaptation.
Another cause of keto fatigue is not having enough minerals—particularly electrolytes such as potassium and magnesium.
Lastly, you may feel keto fatigue if you’re low on vitamin B1. Vitamin B1 is vital to energy levels. Fat does not contain vitamin B1, so you may have to replenish it on keto.
If you’re having a lot of coffee and tea on keto, you may have even lower B1 levels because they tend to deplete vitamin B1.
Wine can make you more fatigued because alcohol and sulfites can deplete vitamin B1.
If all of you’re only eating cooked foods, you may have low nutrients levels as well. Get plenty of raw vegetables. Keep in mind that raw fish can also deplete vitamin B1, so stay away from that.
Medications for type 2 diabetes may also be the cause of fatigue. Talk with your doctor about fatigue if you’re using any medications.
If you are low on vitamin B1, nutritional yeast is a fantastic natural source.
