When I first started the ketogenic diet, my snoring completely stopped within the first week.
I did some research into this and found that a lot of other people also reported the same thing. Even people with severe sleep apnea on Cpap’s reported complete relief after going on the Keto diet.
The Ketogenic diet is a way of eating where one restricts carbs and sugar. Your body quickly gets rid of inflammation, excess fat around the neck and any allergies you might have.
That’s why people stop snoring when in ketosis. If your excess fat in the neck area is gone, the airway muscles does not collapse so easily at night, your airway stays open and your snoring stops.
If you have low inflammation in the body, your nasal stuffiness and allergies will be gone as well and you’re able to breath freely through the nose.
That also eliminates snoring.
Watch this video where Dr Keith explains how and why he himself stopped snoring while on the Ketogenic Diet.
Here are some comments I found all over the web from people who have stopped snoring while on the Keto Diet.
” I am in my third week of keto, and love it. I was thrilled to learn you stopped snoring after 1 week. I have been using a cpap for sleep apnea and snorning for over 10 years now, and thought the snoring and apnea was weight related.
I immediately tried sleeping last night without the cpap, using an app called SnoreLab to record any noise in my sleep. It actually records anything it recognizes as snoring, shows the results in a graph showing time and intensity of any snoring.
I slept incredibly well and the app showed on a graph that the very few instances of snoring during the night were brief and light – the lowest category. My results used to show “epic” – the highest. The benefit of the audio recording is you can hit any part of the graph and listen to the actual recording.
What Type of Snorer Are You?
There are 3 types of snorers and each need their own treatment. Take our 40 second test to see what type you are.
I could hear that there was no apnea either – that stopping of the breath for too long a pause. So no snoring, and steady breathing. Amazing. If I hadn’t seen this vid, it would not have occured to me to check it.
No more cpap. That is a major relief. Thank you so much. PS lost 7 pounds in 15 days. David Kelly”
Richard said the following..
“Same thing for me. My wife convinced me to go on the Keto Diet and after 2 weeks my snoring stopped completely. This might put sleep clinics out of business. lol”
There are a ton more case studies like these on the web. You can find some of them here.
Can you commit to a 28 day plan to stop your snoring naturally? Not only will your snoring stop, you’ll also have the energy of a 21 year old, look 10 years younger, lose weight and just feel much better overall while in Ketosis.
Have a look at this page where I explain how my unique system helps people to stop their snoring and sleep apnea naturally..

This article is true. I snored for a few years (so annoying and frustrating!!) then went keto a year ago. After literally just a week, the snoring was gone. Last summer I got lazy and fell off the wagon. The snoring came right back. Two months ago I re-committed to keto, and in a week or less the snoring was gone again. Like magic.
Awesome! I had the exact same experience
Yes, while in Keto after a few weeks my snoring stopped . Amazing. We are told so many lies . Now they want us to spend thousands of dollars on sleep research, when all we have to do is watch our weight and eating patterns!!! Have control over yourself people and just GET HEALTHY. WATCH WHAT GOES INTO YOUR BODY !!! Period !
I’ve been on the keto diet going on six weeks, not only lost 15 pounds so far but my wife noticed I don’t snore anymore. Plus I seem to sleep much better. I read some people thought it increased bags under the eyes. Myself it looks like the bags are slowly going away. After I get to my goal, I still plan on staying with keto but add a few more things I miss once and a while.
Mike it has been proven that ketosis slows the aging process and makes the skin look better and younger.
There’s no doubt I snore but what I do notice is when I try to control my nasal congestion it’s not as bad. Sleep on my back, I’ll snore my head off. Left side, yes but not as bad. If I roll on my right side it’s bad. I’m dieting and haven’t noticed a difference yet.
I have chronic sleep apnea and it has affected my relationships
Same!! My husband has always snored horribly, and this morning I realized as I was waking up that he hasn’t been snoring the last couple nights. He’s been on the keto diet for only THREE DAYS. I knew nothing about the link between keto and snoring so I just googled it and found this article. I’m blown away. I’ve been trying to convince him to do a sleep study or get a cpap or SOMETHING, but all along the cure was actually in his diet.
It’s so crazy.. I went on a Leto diet to lose weight and my husband noticed that I’d stopped snoring as well! I’ve been at this weight six month ago, and so I know it’s not because of the weight gain. I’ve also not done much else different that I’m aware of, so I believe it’s the keto diet, which is also why I googled it to see if others say the same. I just can’t believe it. This was originally a short term diet, but if it would cure my snoring, I’m willing to make this more permanent.
