    I've just started Keto (moving from a moderate to low carb diet) - Friday was my first full day, and I felt a tad under-the-weather yesterday - typical headache and low energy. In my head, I'd got today written off as a do nothing and ride out the symptoms sunday. But I feel quite spritely.
    I am thinking of going to the gym and doing an hour or so with the weights, and maybe do a quick yoga class. Too soon? Or suck it and see?

    My stress levels are insane at the moment, and the gym has been really helping... So I'm feeling a bit twitchy as I haven't been since Thursday.

    Nothing too strenuous is the usual recommendation but if you feel ok then go for it.

    Make sure you have enough salt and electrolytes as not enough can cause headaches. I have found the gym helps
