More Abundance of Energy
As I stated earlier, the human body prefers to burn ketones for fuel over glucose.
So, when you are on the keto diet and in ketosis, the body is running on ketones.
What does that mean besides fat loss?
It means that you are going to feel an increase in energy.
When you first start the keto diet, you will feel more drained, sluggish, maybe even lethargic as your body adapts to the new fuel.
It’s important not to judge the keto diet as a whole based on how you feel during this transition.
The time this transition takes for your body will depend on the person, but it generally is around 4 to 7 days.
Once it does, however, you should almost immediately feel an abundance of energy.
You will start to notice that your workouts will be better, and you will be able to train longer and harder than you were doing before.
This is one of the big reasons why more and more professional athletes have switched over to the keto diet.
If it didn’t work, you can bet they wouldn’t be doing it.
You may also notice an increase in your mental clarity – less ‘fogginess’ in general, and not feeling like you need quite so much caffeine to “wake up” in the morning.
All of these benefits are from your body using ketones as fuel instead of glucose.
