The Beginners Guide To Ketosis: Investigating Low-carb, High-fat Eating

The only hard and fast rule of health is that health is personal and what works well for one person may not work for someone else. Aside from that rule, there are “frameworks” that seem to benefit large groups of people. One more level down from that are alternative strategies that benefit smaller groups. Ketosis is likely one of those alternative strategies that works well for certain, smaller groups of people. So, right off the bat I want you to understand that Ketosis might not be for everyone. I’m going to lay out the case for potential benefits of Ketosis. If it sounds interesting and beneficial to you, then consider trying it. (see our free cheat sheet to help you). What is Ketosis Ketosis occurs when liver glycogen gets depleted and the body burns fatty acids for fuel. The primary driver of this state is a very low carbohydrate intake. Often, it also requires a low protein, higher fat intake. You can also achieve a state of ketosis by not eating altogether. The creation of ketones is a byproduct of this metabolic state. Ketones are a source of fuel, just as glucose is a source of fuel. Ketones tend to have some added benefits, though. What role does Ketosis play in hum Continue reading >>

    OK So I was trying to learn more about Ketosis and came across a forum where a guy claimed you could reach ketosis in just 24hours of water fasting. I really wish I could start it right now but I already had a cliff bar today so I may not start this until this weekend but here is what you do.
    - The day before you want to start your water fast you eat only fruit, so that is the only carbs and glucose in your system. He says to preferably eat it for 2-3 days in advance.
    - On Day 1 of the fast you drink 8oz of orange juice and then you walk for 2-3 hours or around 5-6.5 miles. He claims this will burn all of your carb reserves and go directly into ketosis by the next morning.
    - After the first day you do not exercise and just continue on to the normal water only fast.
    I need a weekend day to be able to walk around for 3 continuos hours & a few days planning so I think I am going to try and start fruit fasting tomorrow or Thursday and then start the fast Saturday. I really want to get into Ketosis for awhile because I have plenty of fat to burn. I am also a highly toxic person and I know this so it would be nice to really flush stuff out.
    If anyone wants to trade kik names & join me this weekend hit me up!

    Sounds a little complicated? You will reach ketosis within 24-48h by simply water fasting.

    Yeah it's not a big secret. It's very easy after a day of fasting. Heck the hours of walking sound terrible to me. Maybe 30 mns of running or on the elliptical while fasting. Also, depending on how long you're planning on water fasting, you will barely be able to do anything and you will lose all muscle mass. Plus fasting/juicing does not make you detoxify.
    I mean, don't get me wrong. I've done this before successfully so you will shed weight but better have the facts. And if you ever feel you're getting too weak, just remember just some protein and fat can go a long way in strengthening your resolve and it will not ruin the diet.
