"Plenty of people jump right in, thinking all they have to do is cut carbs and increase fat. All of a sudden, they hit a wall and get 'keto flu.' They feel tired, lethargic, and experience headaches," Wittrock says. "The primary reason they get these symptoms is lack of the three primary electrolytes: sodium, potassium, and magnesium. If you're deficient in any of these, you'll suffer mentally and physically. This is the single biggest reason people fail on the keto diet."

There are theoretically no restrictions on where the ketogenic diet might be used, and it can cost less than modern anticonvulsants. However, fasting and dietary changes are affected by religious and cultural issues. A culture where food is often prepared by grandparents or hired help means more people must be educated about the diet. When families dine together, sharing the same meal, it can be difficult to separate the child's meal. In many countries, food labelling is not mandatory so calculating the proportions of fat, protein and carbohydrate is difficult. In some countries, it may be hard to find sugar-free forms of medicines and supplements, to purchase an accurate electronic scale, or to afford MCT oils.
Upang maunawaan kung paano gumagana ang ketogenic diyeta, kailangan mong maunawaan ketosis, ang proseso kung saan ang iyong katawan ay gutom sa glucose para sa gasolina at dapat tumingin sa mga pinagkukunang taba sa halip. Kadalasan, pino-fuel mo ang iyong katawan sa pamamagitan ng pagbibigay ito ng glucose sa anyo ng mga carbs, na matatagpuan sa harina, butil, gulay, tsaa, mga produkto ng dairy, at prutas.
