When you are changing your lifestyle or changing your diet, from a high carbohydrate diet to a ketogenic diet that is a low carbohydrate diet. It’s a big transition in your life and your body.

Your body was used to eat in one way and the change can give you some side effects that are totally normal because your body is in the process of adaptation.

Here are the side effects that your body can present, and how you can fix it:
