6 Reasons People Quit Keto [Low Carb Mistakes] – Thomas DeLauer

1) Lack of Energy/Stiffness- How to fix – More Protein

Amino acids contribute to the development of protein within the body and are vital in promoting wound repair and encouraging healthy tissue in muscles, bones

They provide the mechanisms and stimulus for repair of injured or damaged musculoskeletal tissue


Methionine is a sulfur bearing amino acid that is necessary for cartilage formation.


Arginine is a crucial factor for bone creation as among other things, it supports the production of collagen


Taurine plays a role in combating joint inflammation – the antioxidant action of taurine produces taurine chloramine (TauCl) and bromamine (TauBr), which have anti-inflammatory properties

Hidistine & Glycine

Both possess anti-inflammatory benefits – both reduce levels of NF-κB and IL-6

Protein & Carbs

A study from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found that a piece of white bread paired with tuna (a great source of protein) led to a slower rise in blood sugar than white bread eaten alone or paired with oat cereal (fiber), butter (fat), or rice cereal (more carbohydrates) (reduced glucose AUC by 25%)

So it may be wise to pair the carbs you do consume with protein for this reason


2) Convenience of Making Family Dinner

3) Omega 3 Imbalance

Omega 3’s

Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) – main function is to produce signaling molecules called eicosanoids, which help reduce inflammation

Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) – important for healthy brain development and function

Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) – the body mainly uses ALA for energy, but this omega-3 has also been found to reduce the risk of fractures, heart disease, and type 2 diabetes as well

Omega 6’s

They can help regulate immune system function by provoking inflammation at the right times and can Improve blood pressure levels, blood clotting capacity, and brain function

Some omega-6 fatty acids are Gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) and Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA)

The most common is linoleic acid (LA) – LA is either burned as energy or converted into longer omega-6 fats such as arachidonic acid (ARA)

ARA is used to produce eicosanoids (signaling molecules) that are more pro-inflammatory

4) Boredom/Repetition (go carnivore, go vegan, switch it up)


Our memory is associative, which means we connect various pieces of information based on their relationship to each other

The more “plastic” our brains become, the more creative thoughts and connections we’re able to have.


5) Social Issues – Implement fat-fasting days, carb-refeed fasting days

Days that you choose to do this gives you more leeway on days that you have social outings

6) Depression – Link with Tryptophan and Serotonin – Solution go off keto for a couple weeks with IF + Carbs

Carbs & Tryptophan

Keto & Depression

While it’s feasible that keto could, in some instances, cause depression, or at least reduce the amount of tryptophan delivered to the brain, a study from Neuroscience found that certain fatty acids, octanoic and decanoic fatty acids (FAs), the main components in the MCT, can increase brain levels of tryptophan
