Let’s talk about carbohydrates. When you look up information about the symptoms or signs of carbohydrate deficiency, you’ll likely see the wrong information.

You’ll be told that our brain needs carbohydrates and that the body prefers glucose as fuel. You’ll also probably be told that cutting carbs out of your diet could lead to a lot of health issues.

Common misconceptions about what happens if you stop consuming carbs:
1. You’ll crave carbs and junk food
2. You’ll be hungry all of the time
3. You’ll experience brain fog and fatigue
4. You’ll have mood swings
5. You’ll be too tired to exercise
6. You’ll be constipated
7. You’ll get headaches
8. You’ll have bad breath
9. You’ll lose too much water and electrolytes

The real benefits of a carbohydrate deficiency:
1. No cravings
2. No appetite
3. Cognitive improvements
4. Improved mood
5. Better exercise performance
6. Better digestion
7. Fewer headaches
8. No bad breath

When you stop consuming carbs and start doing keto and fasting correctly, you can experience many incredible health effects.

Any carbohydrate that your brain requires can be made from non-carbohydrate sources like protein, fat, and ketones. Many potential issues that may appear with keto can also quickly be resolved. For example, you can take electrolytes as you lose water weight.

Keep in mind when you start doing Healthy Keto® that it’s important to lower your carbs to 30 to 50 grams net carbs per day and to give your body time to get into ketosis.
