5 problems the keto diet can cause

The keto diet is the latest weight loss craze promising a relatively easy way to shed excess pounds. It has been endorsed by celebrities and requires consuming very few carbs to lose weight. If you recently started a Phentermine 37.5mg regimen and are wondering if the keto diet is right for you, learn some of the problems it can cause.

Muscle Shrinkage

Limiting your carb intake via fruits, vegetables, and grains causes the body to extract protein from your muscles and other tissues, resulting in muscle shrinkage. Quick weight loss at the start of a keto diet is subsequently due to muscle as well as fat loss.

Sleep Issues

Consuming considerably less carbohydrates forces the body into the metabolic state of ketosis, which causes a fast fat breakdown. The first few days or weeks of the keto diet can subsequently make you feel tired and cause sleeping problems. This form of carbohydrate withdrawal is known as “keto flu.”


Drinking plenty of water is essential to health no matter what diet you are on, but even more important if you start a keto program. It causes water loss because the body flushes out excess nitrogen from protein breakdown with frequent urination. This can unfortunately lead to dehydration and leg cramps if you are not continually replenishing yourself with water.

Extra Stress

Since diets are restrictive, feeling extra stressed is not uncommon. Depriving the body of nutrients creates an “emergency state” that results in more cortisol production, the stress hormone that contributes to belly fat among other problems.

Foggy Brain

Since the body relies on fat stores when it is in ketosis, it can make the brain feel a little foggy. The human brain needs at least 100 grams of carbs every day to function at an optimal level.
