Ketosis

Tweet Ketosis is a state the body may find itself in either as a result of raised blood glucose levels or as a part of low carb dieting. Low levels of ketosis is perfectly normal. However, high levels of ketosis in the short term can be serious and the long term effects of regular moderate ketosis are only partially known at the moment. What is ketosis? Ketosis is a state the body goes into if it needs to break down body fat for energy. The state is marked by raised levels of ketones in the blood which can be used by the body as fuel. Ketones which are not used for fuel are excreted out of the body via the kidneys and the urine. Is ketosis the same as ketoacidosis? There is often confusion as to the difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis. Ketosis is the state whereby the body is producing ketones.

    One day of eating carbs will abruptly end ketosis. Ketosis will probably end within a few hours of eating a carbohydrate rich meal. It'll probably take you a few days or even another week of eating low carb to get back into ketosis, because when you start eating carbs again, your body will store the unused glucose as glycogen (and fat) and then once the glycogen is depleted, ketosis will be in full swing.
    6 pounds in a week is a lot though, and I think most of it is water weight. You'd have to be at a severe caloric deficit to lose 6 pounds of fat, so you might gain back a lot of water weight, but you'd probably lose that as rapidly as you did when you first started to diet.
