5) Optimize Thy Sleep
Sleep is one of the most under-rated nutrients that our bodies need in today’s world. Yes, I called it a nutrient because your body requires it in healthy doses. I personally have seen huge struggles in my own health due to a lack of sleep. This is what led me to write an e-book, to teach people every sleep strategy I utilized to regain my health.
When you don’t get adequate sleep, stress hormones are driven through the roof, causing blood sugar deregulation. Sleep alone can cause your ketogenic diet to go completely off the rails and leave you clueless as to why you cannot get it right. Clinically, we can see a cascade of unfortunate health events when you don’t get enough sleep and try to maintain the ketogenic diet. It just isn’t a good combo.
