What should I be drinking and how much during ketosis?

You must make sure you’re drinking enough water, ideally with electrolytes (special salts which you usually sweat out). This will help your body metabolize fat, combat water retention and maximize ketogenic diet weight loss [1]. Ideally 1.5 to 2L per day, but this varies by individual body composition and environmental factors like temperature [2].

When you start drinking more water, you may find your thirst actually increases as the body learns to expect it. The best measure of hydration is the color of your urine. It should be very pale, like light straw, or even colorless. Hydration is a key factor in preventing keto flu symptoms and feeling energized throughout the day [3].
