5 Simple Steps To Get Into Ketosis

5 Simple Steps To Get Into Ketosis

I think almost everyone agrees with me when I say that the ketogenic diet is probably one of the most complex and difficult eating plans out there. Even when you’re not on a diet or trying to lose weight you still have to bring a lot of attention to detail. Getting into ketosis isn’t as important as we would think, but there are still 5 simple steps we can make to get into a ketotic state. What Needs to Happen The conditions of nutritional ketosis are: Low blood sugar levels (about <85 mg/dl) Low insulin And because of that there are going to be: Higher glucagon, which is released by the liver, in response to low insulin, to increase the amount of fatty acids in the blood stream. High serum blood ketone levels, with the optimal zone being in between 0.5 and 3.0 mMols. Here are the 5 simple steps to get into ketosis. Step #1 Do a 24-Hour Fast Ketosis is the by-product of a prolonged period of fasting. After your liver glycogen stores have been depleted already after an overnight fast, the liver then begins to create more ketone bodies. After 2-3 days of fasting, you’ll be definitely in ketosis. Your brain will adapt to using ketone bodies and gets about 75% of its energy from fat. Overall, the body’s glucose demands and protein catabolism get reduced to a bare minimum. However, to get into ketosis we don’t necessarily have to abstain from eating that long. We’re already in mild ketosis in the morning and doing a 24-hour fast will increase our ketogenic pathways by a significant amount. Step #2 Start Eating Low Carb Ketogenic Meals Once you finish your 24-hours, you can start eating keto foods. Make your first meal something extremely ketogenic, meaning: Ultra-low carbs – cruciferous vegetables, like spinach, kale, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, chard. Your Continue reading >>

The Easiest Way To Get Into Ketosis

The Easiest Way To Get Into Ketosis

What is the fastest way to get into ketosis? How long does it take to start busting out those ketones and become a fat burning machine? Let’s find out. For those of you unaware, ketosis is a metabolic state, wherein your body’s default fuel source – glucose – has been replaced by the alternative of fat molecules. This happens when several conditions are met: Liver glycogen stores (100-150 grams of glucose) have been depleted and the liver starts converting fatty acids into ketone bodies. This takes approximately 16 hours or so. The concentration of serum blood ketone levels is above 0.5 mMols, optimally not higher than 3.0 mMols. Blood sugar and circulating insulin have dropped significantly, while not causing a hypoglycemic response. There are several ways to cover these conditions and get into ketosis: Fast for an extended period of time Restrict your carbohydrate intake to close to zero for a few weeks Both of them are viable options but what we’re after is the fastest way to get into ketosis. But first, what’s the easiest way to get into ketosis? Don’t think that I’m getting sidetracked because it’s relevant and an essential component to increasing your speed of adaptation. It’s FASTING. When liver glycogen gets depleted, the liver will then start producing ketones that begin to provide energy to the body. However, during that initial phase, the brain and muscles aren’t able to utilize them successfully, yet. The reason why it takes time to get into ketosis is that the body is trying to preserve as much back-up supply as possible – to have those slabs and slabs of belly fat. Yea! If it were to start burning its own adipose tissue after just a day of no glucose, it would perish in a real survival scenario. 24 hours is not even a blink of an ey Continue reading >>

It has been shown to effectively treat Epilepsy in children, reduce healing time after a head injury, improve symptoms in Parkinson’s Disease, reduce neuron death caused in hypoglycemia in children with type 1 diabetes, and slow the progression of Alzheimer’s in mice. It is thought that using fat for fuel, which the body prefers as its primary fuel source, is beneficial to your neurons. It helps them run more efficiently, avoiding exhaust which leads to cell death. Have you ever noticed that when you have a typical high carb breakfast, of oatmeal, fruit, and toast, and feel tired, sluggish, and may experience brain fog in just a few short hours? This is caused by your body using a less beneficial fuel source in the form of glucose. But we don’t have to suffer through life like this, counting down the minutes until our next “sugar fix” in the form of carbs. That is where ketosis comes in. Ketosis is the natural metabolic state where the body burns fat, rather than glucose (sugar), for its primary energy. Ketosis is an advanced metabolic state because burning fat offers the body 225% more energy than carbohydrates. Getting into a state of ketosis isn’t easy though. Because of our conventional diet, which relies on easily burned carbs, our body is accustomed to having an overabundance of glucose at its disposal. So, when you are no longer providing your b Continue reading >>

Tim Ferriss – 3 Day Fast Protocol Details – Get Into Ketosis Quicker And Easier

Tim Ferriss – 3 Day Fast Protocol Details – Get Into Ketosis Quicker And Easier

In Tim Ferriss’ new book Tools of Titans he puts forward a method to optimize the process of fasting. In his typical 80/20 style, he aims to get the most benefits, in the least amount of time. His recommended fast is conducted in a 3 day period, spanning Thursday evening to Sunday evening. 3-Day Fast Overview Stop eating Thursday night Friday morning go for a long walk to accelerate your transition into ketosis Friday and Saturday stay fasted, and consume moderate amounts of exogenous ketones and MCT oil (as needed), to give you a boost while you’re keto adapting. Sunday evening you break the fast. Here’s the process in more detail if you don’t have Tools of Titans to hand: Thursday Evening Eat a low carbohydrate dinner around 6pm. Make that the last meal of the day. Go to bed as normal. Friday Morning Drink some caffeine if needed, then get out the door and walk within 30 minutes of waking. Bring at least 1 litre of water, with some added salt (to prevent headaches/cramping), and sip as you walk. Walk for 3-4 hours(!). Filling up/buying more water as needed. Arrange phone calls for this time, to make the time productive. The idea behind the walk is that you use up your glycogen stores, forcing your body to move quicker into deep ketosis. The quicker you get into ketosis, the less time you spend feeling sub-optimal, and the less potential muscle wastage. Friday Day (post walk) Consume exogenous ketones or MCT oil 2-3 times throughout the day, where necessary. Tim primarily uses KetoCaNa & KetoForce as exogenous ketone sources. Both these products contain 11.7g of Beta-hydroxybuterate per serving, and each contain 16 servings. The key difference is that KetoForce is an unflavoured (alkaline) liquid. And KetoCaNa is an orange flavoured powder you can mix into wate Continue reading >>

How I Fixed The Biggest Ketosis Mistakes

How I Fixed The Biggest Ketosis Mistakes

The ketogenic diet isn’t always as easy as it seems. I tried for a long time, but not until I dove deep into the research and found out how to fix all of the common mistakes was I able to enjoy the full state of ketosis. This article is to help you avoid those same mistakes. Why Try the Ketogenic Diet First, why would you want to even try ketosis? I truly enjoy trying diets and eating methodologies to research what I like and what works for me. I’ve experimented with low-carb diets, high-carb diets, and everything in between, but I’ve never cut them out to the point to achieve ketosis. What’s most exciting about the ketogenic diet to me is that, yes, it’s amazing for weight loss, but it’s not just a “diet.” Ketosis is literally a state of metabolism. You are either in or you’re out. I wanted to see and feel for myself the benefits everyone is talking about from going full Keto. My Keto Coach has a great line that goes like this: I was sold and needed to try this and commit. If you are new to researching ketosis, a quick review of the popular benefits: Mental Clarity [2] Fat Loss [2][3][4] Feeling Full [1][2] Better Sleep [1] Better Mood [1] Better Skin [4] The list goes on and on, including disease and inflammation reduction, better cholesterol, etc. For my purposes I didn’t care about weight loss or fat loss, I just cared about doing the diet the best I could, and to do that, I needed to prepare accordingly. Preparation Stage – Learning the Keto Basics Here is what I did to educate myself and prepare for six weeks of the Ketogenic Diet. I picked a start date and spent $30 at In-N-Out burger on a massive send-off to carbohydrates. A whole other post could be dedicated to the mistakes I made at In-N-Out. After this epic meal, it was officially time Continue reading >>

Quick Start Keto

Quick Start Keto

Low carbers know ketosis is the superhero of fat-burning. But what is ketosis? And how do you get into ketosis quickly? Keto FAQs and why it makes a difference in fat loss. 6 techniques to get into ketosis fast 3-Day rapid reach ketosis technique Try a few rapid keto techniques and eat specific low carb keto foods. Our quick start guide covers everything you need to reach ketosis fast. If carbs are limited to small amounts in your diet, your body relies on fat for energy. When you reach ketosis, fat burns rapidly and muscle tissue is spared. Why Does Keto Burn Fat Faster? To get into ketosis you’ll avoid sugar, leading to low insulin levels.

Everyone is different. Some low carbers must eat very low carb to reach ketosis. Typical Keto Ratio Getting into ketosis requires eating meals that are high in healthy fats and low in carbs. Protein grams should not exceed 20 % of total daily calories. Keto Calculator This free online keto calculator determines your ideal nutrient ratio for weight loss or maintenance during ketosis.

How To Get Into Ketosis In About 1 Hour

How To Get Into Ketosis In About 1 Hour

Typically it takes 3-7 days of strict, painful dieting to get into Ketosis. Fortunately scientists at the University of S. Florida have cracked the code on nutritional Ketosis. They have patented a formula to induce your body into Ketosis in about 1 hour. Ketogenic Dieters Rejoice! There really is no such thing as a “cheat day” on the ketonic diet. Why? because it is so darn hard to get into Ketosis, the last thing you want to do is go through that process… Until Now… With Ketopia you can easily come in and out of Ketosis at will. While it is not advisable to “cheat” often, it sure is nice to have your Ketopia ready after a vacation or after an indulgent weekend. For those new to ketogenic diets… A keto diet is popular for being a low carbohydrate diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be utilized as energy. It’s referred to as various names– ketogenic diet, low carbohydrate diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), etc. When you consume something high in carbs, your body will produce glucose and insulin. Glucose is the most convenient particle for your body to transform and use as energy, so it will be chosen over any other energy source. Insulin is produced to process the glucose in your bloodsteam, by taking it around the body. Since the glucose is being utilized as a main energy, your fats are not needed, and are therefore saved. Usually on a normal, higher carbohydrate diet, the body will utilize glucose as the primary form of energy. By decreasing the consumption of carbs, the body is caused into a state called ketosis. Ketosis is a natural procedure the body starts to help us endure when food consumption is low. During this state, we produce ketones, which are produced from the breakdown of fats in the liver. The main objective of a properl Continue reading >>

Ketogenic Dieting And Intermittent Fasting – It Really Works!

Ketogenic Dieting And Intermittent Fasting – It Really Works!

I’ve been combining ketogenic dieting and intermittent fasting for quite some time now. Two weeks ago a colleague of mine, who is trying to lose weight herself, put me up to a challenge. Starting on Friday the 15th of January, we both had until Friday the 19th of February to lose as much weight as possible and whoever has lost the most by then wins $50. The rules are: Weight loss must be safe, ie. healthy eating, low calories and moderate exercise. No going days on end without food and trying to exercise for hours every day. If neither of us lose at least 5kg by the end date, neither of us win. Important afternote: I ended the challenge losing a whopping 7.2kg (15.8 lb) of FAT (a total loss of over 10kg when counting the initial 3kg of water weight lost before starting the competition). I did this entirely through ketosis fasting. Read on if you want to lose weight as fast and easily as I did! My Secret Weapon As I have a trip to Japan coming up shortly after the end date and had wanted to lose a lot of weight before then anyway (I gained 5kg in 3 weeks last time I was in Japan!), I accepted the challenge. We’re now 2 weeks and 1 day into the challenge and I’d like to share my results, as well as some weight loss tips I’ve learnt in these short 2 weeks. Ketogenic Dieting and Intermittent Fasting really works! Of all the people in the world, it was my gastro-enterologist who introduced me to “the 5-2 diet“. For those who don’t know what the 5-2 diet is, it’s basically a form of intermittent fasting where you eat normally for 5 days, and eat 1/4 of your usual target daily energy expenditure on 2 days. Using the TDEE calculator I just linked, I found that for weight maintenance (neither losing nor gaining weight) I would need to consume (note: consume. Not Continue reading >>

How To Get Into Ketosis In 24 Hours: Practical Tips And Tricks

How To Get Into Ketosis In 24 Hours: Practical Tips And Tricks

Some people need to be in ketosis for medical reasons while others need to be in a fat-burning mode for athletic competitions. Whatever the reason, I’ve conjured up tips on how to get into ketosis in 24 hours. Before I begin… These tips are purely from experience. While a lot of it has been backed by research, always take things with a grain of salt. There is no one size fits all diet that will turn you into superman. Anyways.. When I first adopted the low carb high fat keto lifestyle a couple years back, I became obsessed with it. To me it felt like I just struck a goldmine. It felt like some sort of esoteric subculture that no one knows about and those that do, have a leg up on their competition. With this newfound obsession, I spent hours on researching, implementing, and documenting how to get into ketosis as fast as possible. The science is out there. Study after study showing how beneficial being in ketosis is. Through trial and error, I’ve conjured up these tips on how to get into ketosis in 24 hours. Some of it is probably obvious and common sense but that doesn’t mean it isn’t effective. Starting Tips On How To Get Into Ketosis In 24 Hours Start Intermittent Fasting (IF) I’ve mentioned it in a previous post, here. Intermittent fasting is like peanut butter and jelly, like batman and robin, like a fork and spoon, like Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump (just kidding). But seriously. By prolonging the time in which you eat your first meal, your body begins to enter a fat-burning stage (ketosis). I emphasize intermittent fasting with the ketogenic diet because it speeds up the whole process in depleting your glycogen storages. My recommendation is to skip breakfast completely. A popular protocol that many people praise is the 16:8 hour fast. This means y Continue reading >>
