Yes, You Can Get Into Ketosis Even If You're Vegan. Here's How

One of the most interesting panels at this year's revitalize, mbg's exclusive event in the Arizona desert (think TED but with a lot more yoga and probiotics), was a discussion on intermittent fasting and ketosis, two buzzwords just beginning to become familiar in the health world. Mention a ketogenic diet, and those who are familiar typically picture something similar to a high-fat paleo diet, heavy in animal protein and plant and animal fat.

    Only that fasting is much easier after you become fat-adapted. Trying to fast as a sugar burner can be done, but it’s not a pleasant experience. Why set yourself up for misery and/or failure?

    Get through the adaptation phase while you’re still able to eat, then you may find yourself fasting intermittently without even trying, and from there to a longer-term fast is a very small step.
