Tamra Judge Quit the Keto Diet After it Made Her Sick

It feels like every celebrity is on the keto diet these days, but not all are fansThe Real Housewives of Orange County‘s Tamra Judge said she had to quit the diet after it made her “sick.”

The bodybuilding reality star, 51, is all about healthy eating and high-protein meals, but she had to bail on keto after a month.

Judge was following the high-fat, high-protein and low-carb plan “until I got sick,” she told the Bravo blog The Feast. “They say there’s this keto flu you get, and I just fell off the keto wagon.”

The keto flu is a well-known side effect, with dieters experiencing influenza-like symptoms such as body aches, fatigue, dizziness and nausea. According to Women’s Health, doctors believe that its because the body is going through withdrawal as it switches to burning fat for energy instead of carbs, a process called ketosis (which is how the keto diet earned its name).
