What Is The Best Way To Get Into Ketosis?

Getting into ketosis is the goal most low carb dieters have. But it requires that you drastically reduce the number of carbohydrates you consume daily. If you are on Atkins induction phase, that allows only 20 grams of carbs! Even when I was strictly following Atkins, it would take me 4 – 6 days to reach ketosis. What’s All The Fuss Over Ketosis? A ketogenic diet causes the overall insulin levels in the body to reduce, which creates favorable conditions for the process of ketosis. When the body is in the state of ketosis, there is a breakdown of fats in the liver, which in turn lead to the formation of ketones. These ketones act as the alternative energy for the body when there is a moderate intake of carbs. How Long Does It Take To Get Into Ketosis? Typically, when consuming a keto diet, your body will go into a state of ketosis within 3 to 6 days. The number of days you will take depends on your daily intake of the net carbohydrates.

    How to get deeper into Ketosis?

    I've been doing keto for about 2 weeks now. I want to get deeper into ketosis. I'm always on the moderate side when checkin with ketostix.
    My diet is simple
    Breakfast - 3 fried eggs with butter + shredded rotisserie chicken from costco + tapatio sauce
    Snacks - cheese, peanut/almond butter, silk almond milk
    Dinner - 2 hamburger patties grilled with my george forman grill. + cheese + lettuce to wrap it with.
    im hittin ~65/~30/~5 everyday. I lift 5 times a week.
    I'm thinking of adding cardio in everday. just 20 minutes of HIIT or MISS on a fasted stated in the morning.
    Any suggestions would be great. I want to lose fat. ASAP. The first week I lost ~8 pounds. But I know that all water weight. I want it to be fat weight.
    Thanks for your time.

    As far as i am aware and correct me if i am wrong but the colour of the keto sticks doesnt indicate how deep you are in ketosis, if i drink a lot of water its pale pink and if i dont its darker.
    In answer to your question about deep ketosis, and again correct me if i am wrong please, its about time spent in ketosis and possibily the volume of fat consumed with fewer carbohydrates.
    As for losing fat ASAP i think you need to understand that its going to be a long game and its not a quick fix. 2 weeks is nothing, you wont even be fat adapted yet until that happens dont expect huge amounts of fat loss
    Why add cardio so soon, you have only just started, i honestly think you are being impatient here
    I would imagine someone like Lawrence and Alex would be able to give you some more sciency stuff behind this when they read this!

    True. I think the sticks are just an indicator of how much ketones are in my piss. Not of my body is using ketones.
    I don't feel any of the side effects of being in Ketosis. I know im in it though. I haven't eaten a carb in a while.
    I'm just starting cardio because I want to build up my cardiovascular system and for health. At what week should my body start shedding the weight?

    Short Answer: 2-7 days In order for your body to get to the point where it is breaking down stored fat into ketones for fuel, it must first use up all stored sugar. The body stores excess sugar in the muscles in the form of glycogen. It is stored there to give the muscles access to a quick source of energy should the need arrive. You must first deplete the glycogen so the body is forced to use fat for fuel instead. There is about 2-3 days worth o ...
