A Working KETO Diet
The KETO Diet consists of eating mostly fats and proteins as a source of energy instead of carbs and sugars.
- Fish and seafood
- Meat and poultry
- Vegetables (especially low carb)
- Butter, cottage cheese
- No sweets or high carb snacks
- No grains
Some individuals feel great on this diet, and some do not. This diet may not be for everyone.
However, if you do not feel great on the diet, it could be the effect of an imbalanced gallbladder and liver.
First investigate if you have a family history of gallbladder issues. If so, that could be the culprit.
The gallbladder is a small sac that stores bile a liquid produced by the liver.
When you eat any type of fats, the gallbladder contracts and pumps bile into the stomach.
Fats are to be broken down into essential fatty acids.
The KETO diet provides fats as a fuel source instead of sugar. Fats give a slower, more long sustained energy than a short burst of energy as sugars give. It trains your body to live off fats instead of carbs.
If gallbladder function is impaired, fats are not broken down properly and energy will tank. This can cause a craving for sugar if there is no other form of energy available.
Furthermore, undigested fats can cover other food particles, which does not allow enzymes to eat up the food.
This leads to these big signs:
- Gas and belching
- Chronic jaw, neck, and shoulder pain after you eat
- Foot cramps especially at night
- Knee pain
- Chest tightness or difficulty in breath
