Up carbs or up fat? Or just go thru it, I heard this is what most people go through during the first couple weeks on keto.
haha theres no way you are keto man, it takes like zero carbs for ~3 weeks to get there. I did it this summer. Could definitely be your insulin sensitivity raising and body getting used to less carbs for sure though.

Some people complain of headaches during the fast, any idea what causes this and better yet, how to solve it?

The most probable cause in this context is hypoglycemia and the headaches are likely to occur after low carb (rest) days. I rarely encounter this among my own clients, but I'd wager a bet that most people experiencing the headaches are eating very low carb/ketogenic on rest days, which is why hypoglycemia may occur early in the fast on the next day. If that is the case, I'd then suggest to up carb intake on rest days - 1 g cho/kg body weight is a good starting point. The goal is not to hit ketosis on rest days like some people seem to believe; if you do, then you're doing it wrong (and shifting in and out of ketosis isn't exactly ideal for mental performance either). Make sure protein and carbs are high enough to not go ketogenic on rest days if you're having problems with fasting headaches.

Another factor that plays into this is the caloric surplus and deficit; if you're having headaches, make sure that the gap between training days and rest days isn't too steep in terms of calorie surplus/deficit. Large swings, i.e eating +50%--50% maintenance/ on training/rest, can also cause headaches and other mood disturbances during the fast.

Other possibilities not related to hypoglycemia include dehydration and caffeine withdrawal, both easily solved by drinking more and keeping your regular caffeine habits intact.

If all of the above can be ruled out as explanations to your headaches, studies show that there is a pretty strong genetic predisposition to migraines, which can be triggered by very small fluctuations in blood glucose - if that's the case, well, fasting simply isn't for you, and you may in fact be better off with more regular meals.

Wrong. It takes about 4 days to start ketosis

Picked up some more from the local farmers market, this stuff is half the diameter of the last ones I got.

Even though I put on some garlic and fresh parm, I couldn't really taste any of it.

How do you prepare yours, and how much do you have to eat for your pee to stink

It's a So.Cal based fast food joint (..centralized mainly in the Inland Empire). It's really popular out here.
