Newbie.... again.

Good afternoon. Wow, it's been quite awhile since i've been here. I have been looking into Keto OS from Pruvit, has anyone heard of it, ot used it to help with a keto lifestyle ?

Can someone tell me, is a keto diet, the same as Atkins ?

My main question is, what is the best type of multivitamin or supplement to help out during a keto diet ?

Thanks for any help. I am planning on starting within the next week.

*Ronnie*

Hello Ronnie!!

A keto diet is very similar to Aktins in that the initial aim in Atkins is to get into ketosis. The main differences are that Atkins allows a person to up their carbs over time and that protein is not moderated as it is in keto.

The most important supplementing in my opinion is salt. The reasoning is that keto has a diuretic effect and many people find that they feel sluggish, headachey and various other symptoms of what is 'the keto flu'. The loss of fluids takes electrolytes with it and this is generally the reason.

Consuming enough salt will help preserve electrolytes and the best way to do so is by consuming at least 2 cups of salty broth per day.

I also take magnesium regularly because it is thought that most north Americans are deficient. I also take D3/K2 in the winter.

Good luck and be sure to check in regularly!

Regarding the Keto OS, my short answer would be no, do not waste your money on such supplements. If you want a more involved article on the matter, google Tyler Cartwright Exogenous Ketones and you will find a more detailed article. It is two years old, but much of the information is still relevant. Richard Nikoley also has a recent article that touches upon this, but his manner of delivery isn't for everyone.

As pointed out, electrolytes (sodium, magnesium, and potassium) are really the most important thing to supplement - and it's not an expensive thing to do.
