In this video, we’re going to talk about the best way to handle a cheat day on keto and cheat day recovery. Can I do cheat days on keto?
Some people may have a keto cheat day if they’re on vacation, going to a party, it’s a holiday, etc. The main thing is to understand the mechanism involved. When you have a cheat meal, and you eat carbs, you spike insulin which then reacts to store glucose. You now end up with a low blood sugar situation.
This is when the hunger sets in, the cravings start, and other negative effects like anxiety happen.
Of course, when you eat carbs, you will feel better…but…not for very long. Soon after the carbs, you’re left wanting more and more. You’re also depleting a lot of essential nutrients.
How to recover from a cheat day on keto:
• Drink apple cider vinegar with water • Start fasting • Exercise • Take electrolytes (B-vitamins (nutritional yeast), potassium (electrolytes) sea salt)
