More studies should be done to truly determine the effect. Hyperketosis, or high levels of ketones in the blood, may cause adverse symptoms such as nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, headache, lethargy, irritability, muscle cramps, and dizziness. These symptoms are typically related to fluid loss and electrolyte imbalance and are sometimes referred to as keto flu or carb flu.
Lemon juice contains citric acid, which can naturally control blood sugar levels, especially right after eating. Try to add lemon juice to your water, as well as over salads and cooked veg, smoothies etc. Excessive protein consumption is one of the easiest ways to accidentally kick yourself out of ketosis.
In ketosis, the body produces ketones at an increased rate. Ketones or ketone bodies are synthesized in the liver from the fats consumed, as well as from the fatty tissue of the body itself. The three types of ketones are beta-hydroxybutyrate, acetoacetate and acetone . Ketosis is a metabolic state in which fats and ketones are used as the main source of energy, rather than glucose.
Biologically, the human body is a very adaptable machine that can run on a variety of different fuels, but on a carb-heavy Western diet, the primary source of energy is glucose. If glucose is available, the body will use it first, since it’s the quickest to metabolize.
