Keto Flu

The Keto diet is notorious for making people sick.  Symptoms usually clear up after a couple of weeks.

One reason for the problems is because, unlike most diets, this one forces the body into ketosis, burning fat instead of carbohydrates for energy. 

However, I wonder if part of the problem is making a sudden change.  Any pet owner can tell you that sudden dietary changes tend to cause gastric distress and other problems.  In some species, a switch like that can be lethal.  So while keto doesn't sound like a good approach for most people, if you have strong reasons for trying it, consider making the shift gradual rather than abrupt.
