A Week of Keto: Day 3
Haiiii and welcome to day 3 of my 7 Day Keto Sample Menu! If you’re feeling particularly sh!tty today I recommend starting to take some electrolytes to help with the ‘Keto Flu’ symptoms. For those of you who don’t know, keto flu is a sign that your body is entering ketosis and that it is getting rid of all the stores of glycogen! You feel very lethargic and almost as if you have a cold. I also get insane leg cramps 😯To combat this, I recommend you take some electrolytes which will make you feel all better. This one is especially good as it tastes like lemonade and helps with leg cramps! You can find it on Amazon.
Below is Day 3 of my Sample Keto Menu for beginners and remember it is based on a 1,600 calorie diet plan.
Shopping List 🥩
- ✔Leftover Cauliflower Bake
