What Is Keto Flu

The “keto flu” is a label given to a set of carbohydrate withdrawal symptoms that may occur in people who start a low carb diet that results from altered hormonal states and the electrolyte imbalances that may occur with it. In other words, it describes a cycle in the body adapting to a newly started low carb diet. 

Keto stands for ketogenic, a very strict low carb eating plan. The term should really be “low carb flu” since the ketogenic diet is not the only low carb plan.

Experiencing Keto Flu is a normal, temporary and manageable situation. There have even been studies that compare carbohydrates (sugar in particular), to addictive substances such as cocaine in regards to their effects on the brain. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23719144).


No two individuals are alike, so the symptoms can range from nothing to mild to a full-blown flu-like condition, and include

  • Lightheadedness
  • Nausea
  • Fatigue
  • Mental fog
  • Cramps
  • Headaches
  • Diarrhea
  • In some extreme cases, high blood pressure and arrhythmia
