In fact, on a successfully monitored keto diet, you should actually experience healthier rest. “A ketogenic diet eliminates spikes in insulin and large fluctuations in blood glucose, thus allowing for a more restful night sleep,” says Molly.
“Additionally, by cutting out sugars and refined carbs, we reduce inflammation throughout the body, so those that suffer from joint pain or migraines find these symptoms are reduced, allowing for more peaceful and sound sleep.”
As you continue to seek out the healthiest decisions during your day, remember that healthy decisions for your night are just as important. Whether you’re trying keto or any other diet or lifestyle change, if it’s interrupting your sleep, consider making adjustments. No matter how many avocados you eat, if you’re not sleeping, you’re not healthy. (No disrespect to avocados of every type – especially guac.)
