10 Tips For Getting Into Nutritional Ketosis For Weight Loss

10 Tips For Getting Into Nutritional Ketosis For Weight Loss What is Nutritional Ketosis? Ketosis is an eating plan where the body uses ketones to fuel the brain and body instead of glucose like most people use when on the SAD (standard American diet). It can be very helpful for blood sugar and consistent energy because fat is a very stable source of fuel. We all have a few million calories of fat we would gladly burn off, right? It takes a while to get into ketosis and it can be elusive if you are not paying close attention. It can be very safe for a period of time (even forever) but each person has to decide what feels compatible with their own lifestyle. Some experts do not think it is an optimal state for athletes but others experts disagree. I think we all have bio hack ourselves to see what feels right. Of course, I believe that the paleo template is good starting place for optimal health but ketosis can be an add-on or tweak for people who get stuck or feel hopeless. It can be a powerful and effective way to lose weight without hunger and many of my friends have had success with it. Always ask your doctor before beginning any new nutrition or weight loss plan.

    I've been on the diet now for 7 days. Day 1 and 2 I dropped 2 kilos, and since that I haven't budged.
    I check my pee twice a day and am always in the top or second top keto reading...
    Is it possible to be in ketosis, but still doing something wrong ?

    Ketosis just means that you are burning fat instead of carbs/glucose for energy. If you are having too many calories (or even not enough), you may find that you do not lose weight.
    Also, if you only have a few kgs to lose, then your weight loss will be slower than someone who has a lot of weight to lose. What is your BMI?
    Are you doing a lot of intensive exercise? Sometimes you may be losing fat, but building muscle, so the scales appear to not move.
    Regardless of what diet you follow, you will not lose weight each and every day. 2 kgs in 1 week is a pretty good loss, especially if you don't have a lot of weight to lose.
    Chances are that if you continue to follow the program properly and keep avoiding carbs, you will lose more weight in the next few days. Some call it the "whoosh" effect, lol. Some people lose weight slowly and steadily. Many more of us, lose it in stops and starts. We lose a bit, then a few days of nothing and then another "whoosh".
    Keep at, and you should get results.
    Cheers

    My Bmi is 30.51. I've got about 15 kilos to lose, but on a bazillion diets I never seem to get past 6 or 7kg.
    I'm not currently exercising because I'm just too tired. I'm hoping to get back to the gym soon though.
    I'll stick it out in hopes for this whoosh hehe. Thanks Helen.
