8 Tips And Tricks For How To Get Into Ketosis Fast

Ketosis is a natural biological process that plays a key role in health. The process has become particularly relevant in a specific type of diet known as a ketosis diet or a ketogenic diet, which is powerful for weight loss.

The ketones themselves are thought to help suppress the appetite and may be a key reason why the diet approach helps with weight loss (1,2).

    I am in ketosis the very next day when i start induction. I sometimes even eat a few carbs over the 20 allowed, i use sugar free creamer (which has corn syrup) and when im craving chocolate, I have about 20 semi sweet choc chips, im on day 7 and lost 11lbs! This is why I just LOVE this diet. I eat hot dogs, I make the hidden valley ranch dip mix with sour cream and eat that with radishes and cukes...i have smoked and even cinnamon roasted almonds, never once have I been knocked out of ketosis. Just wondering if there is anyone else out there who has it this easy like I do!

    I have been in ketosis since starting in Feburary of this year. I think it took about 2 days to get there but really not sure. I now eat about 30-40 total carbs a day including low carb ice cream bars, almonds and etc. I am keeping to 30-40 carbs until I get near goal and then increase to my personal level. I do have a friend that can not seem to go into ketosis. I guess everybodies body works different. My body needs this as I was starting to see sugar increase to boreline D's. DO NOT want that problem so here I am losing weight (23 pounds) and feeling great!! Hope it keeps up and as easy as it is right now!!!
