Why does my heart beat so fast on keto?

On a keto diet, you eat a lot of fats and proteins. These require a lot of water to get digested. Fats and proteins may drain out the body’s water content and other fluids. To maintain your blood pressure, your heart starts to pump the blood more vigorously, leading to a faster heart rate.

Regarding this, can keto raise heart rate?

If you are on the Keto diet, it’s actually “normal” for you to experience a slightly higher heart rate during the first few weeks of the diet. Now, if you continue to experience high blood pressure and heart palpitations it can be due to dehydration and lack of salt content in the body from the diet.

Similarly one may ask, can a low-carb diet cause heart problems? Yet many doctors warn that low-carbing is dangerous. They point to large-scale population studies linking low-carb diets to increased risk of heart attack, stroke and premature death.
