How Long Does It Take To Get Into Ketosis

For those of you interested in the Keto Diet, you may be wondering how long it takes to get into ketosis. Since burning fat and losing pounds is on your mind, while doing the Ketogenic Diet, this is essential information. So, how long does it take to get into ketosis? If you are new to the Ketogenic Diet, I highly suggest you start with this article: Simple Way to Start the Ketogenic Diet to understand how this diet works and the best way to start it when you are brand new. Know What Ketosis Is To know when you’re in Ketosis, you need to know what it is. To keep it simple, it’s a metabolic state in which your body gets in. Your body starts getting its energy from ketones in the blood. This is the opposite of the body’s normal glycoses state. Knowing what ketosis is can help you recognize when your body hits that stage. Ketosis Takes Some Time Most people that are trying to get into the ketosis state are switching their diet over completely. It can take anywhere from a month to six weeks for your body to get into this metabolic state. If you are already switching over from a healthy diet, it can take up to a week.

    since last week when I messed up and had some ad carbs one day, I basically started over Tuesday. I was really good all day Tuesday and Wednesday. Wednesday night I used a ketosis stick and it came up "trace". is that normal?should it take longer to get into ketosis? I was doing good the first 3 weeks (however not measuring my ketone levels) then all of a sudden I gained 2 pounds at which point I got aggrivated and screwed up for one day. the next day I got right back in the groove. I know my carbs are low, Ihaven't gotten on a scale,but this trace amount of keytones is concerning me. DO you think I should do some kind of fast (could onl really stomach the macadamia nut one) or wait it out a bit longer?
    thanks

    I would not be too concerned about the Ketosis Stix....they have been known to not be accurate. If you are drinking a lot of water (as you should be) or eating a lot of fat & protein, they can give you false readings.
    Eating something you shouldn't, can definately knock you out of ketosis. Getting back into ketosis can vary depending on the person.
    As far as "fasts" are concerned, personally, I woudn't consider a fast unless I was in a very serious stall (not losing lbs OR inches). My best advice to you is to do a clean induction (only real foods..meat,eggs,cheese, veggies, etc) and be patient. Sometimes we get so anxious to lose the unwanted pounds we forget that we didn't gain them overnite & we aren't going to lose them overnite.
    All the best to you,

    For me, it depends on the amount of water and foods that I consume. Ketosis makes my mouth really dry....so I don't go into a deep ketosis like I have before with the meat/egg fast.
