Dr. Berg talks about getting headaches on a keto (ketogenic diet) and intermittent fasting. This is a hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) situation, your cells have not yet adapted to running on ketones. The brain is the first organ affected by low blood sugars because it depends on glucose.

We are going to talk about headaches in a relationship to doing Keto and Intermittent Fasting. This is really a hypoglycemic type of issue or the low blood sugar situation, your cells have not yet adapted to running on ketones, and you’re still running on glucose. If you implement intermittent fasting and you try to go in a long period of time, it drops the sugar. The problem is that low blood sugars add a tremendous amount of stress to the brain, central nervous system and the nerves overall. In fact, the brain is the first organ to be affected by low blood sugars because they depend on glucose. There is an alternative fuel called ketones but if you don’t know how to do it you are going to run in glucose and if you implement intermittent fasting, you are gonna crash and burn. Headaches are very common symptoms of hypoglycemia but to really know if your headaches are really connected to blood sugars, all you have to do as soon as you start getting headaches is to start to consume some protein because that should instantly improve your headaches and if it doesn’t then it could be another source. The solution to the headaches is to realize that it is a blood sugar thing and go into this more gradually. For example you are going this and eating twice a day and you are getting headaches, add another meal because you are not ready to go to 2 meals a day. If you are doing 3 meals a day maybe you might really need to add more protein. But again here’s the problem, medically speaking what they’ll do to hypoglycemia is they tell you to add more snacks like 5 to 6 meals a day which is a big mistake even though you’ll feel better, you’ll never correct the problem. You might go “wow, I had some fruit, protein, and I feel better” but if you are not working towards running your body on ketones you are still going to have the blood sugar situation because as soon as you eat, you are going to spike the insulin, it is gonna come down. Primarily because it is the frequency of eating that keeps the insulin very high and if you are trying to fix this problem, you are going to work towards going longer and longer without snacking. Snacking is just very quick fix, it is a temporary situation but we want to go longer without eating in general. The other bad advice would be to add some candy.

  1. Please see Angela Stanton's migraine protocol. It involves keto diet plus electrolyte management. She's helped thousands of migraineurs in her facebook group.

  2. Ok so I fasted for 3 days and only ate one time a day and drink water the rest I went 16 hours and I have head a headache since Sunday which was the last day I fast is that normal ? and it’s only in the front of my head

  3. I always feel great first 2-4 days, i can work 10hours+ crazy focus and patience. Then the world ends with crazy headache

  4. Having been keto for 9 months and still getting headaches on my 24 hour fast days, I can assure you it's not just about fat adaptation.

  5. So impressed by this channel man you got the answers to the entire universe

    Headaches have always been my biggest impediment to fasting

  6. I’ve been intermittent fasting for a long time and doing keto since January. Only recently I have a started getting small headaches which seem to go away when I eat. I don’t really want to be eating earlier than my fasting window and it seems odd that it’s only started happening recently. Any ideas?

  7. My migraine is so intense. Went to the ER twice cause of it. My blood pressure is perfect cholesterol on point…and lost a lot of weight but the migraine is so bad I called in sick 3 times already. I don't wanna lose my job

  8. I'm intermittently dry fasting, its been pretty easy, but today the headache started .. so I'm just drinking water now… dry fasting gives you a better step.. to step back to, if you get headaches… Still fasting.. just not dry fasting (or shortening my dry fast window by an hour or two)… win!

  9. Amazing. I was getting severe headaches and after watching this I ate 3 almonds and is was gone in a couple of minutes.
