In this video we are going to talk about how you know that you are fat adapted or keto adapted. And what is the difference between ketosis and being fat-adapted. Im going to tell you about my personal experience about being on the keto diet for almost 3 months now. Being in ketosis means that you have between 0,5 to 3 level of blood ketones. You can be in ketosis but still not being fat adapted or keto adapted. If you fast for an extended time like you stop eating at 6 in the evening and you fast until the morning you will have a light for of ketosis, but it doesn't mean you are fat adapted. Fat adapted means that your body prefers using fat as the primary fuel source for the body. You can go back to eating carbs on a cheat day but then your body very fast will go back to burning fat again. There is a lot of co

What Is Fat Adapted?

Being “in ketosis” and being “fat adapted” are two different things. Being in ketosis simply refers to a state in which your body is producing ketones. Most people can get into ketosis fairly quickly but it takes longer to become fat adapted. Fat adapted, also referred to as keto adapted, is the state in which your body is accustomed to using fat as its primary source of fuel. Our bodies are always using a combination of glucose and fat for energy, but in someone who is a “sugar burner” (using carbs as the primary source of energy), the body will turn to glucose first. Once you’re fat adapted, the body no longer looks for energy from glucose because it now knows it can burn fat. When you first start a keto diet, your body will burn through its glycogen stores (glucose stored in the body). This is what causes the rapid weight loss experienced in the beginning stages of a keto diet: each gram of glycogen is stored with 3 to 4 grams of water, so all of this water gets flushed out of the body as the glycogen stores are used up. But don’t be discouraged if people tell you you’re “just” losing water weight! All of this is necessary for your body to become fat adapte Continue reading >>

    Hi fellow ketoers of Reddit!
    I've been doing Keto for about a month (practice what you preach, eh?) so I'm still a noobie. I've been pretty strict recording everything and keeping carbs <30g. I've noticed the changes as to where I know I've entered ketosis. I've been on (an active) vacation for a week, doing lazy keto. Think I've stayed under 30g a day in food, but might have gone over a bit with alcohol (red wine), though I don't think I've gone over 50g total. The thing I'm finding difficult to figure out is if I can tell if my body is out of ketosis or not. A lot of people here say stuff like they can eat up to 80-100g on an active day and still be in ketosis. I gather this is different for everyone, especially if you're not Keto adapted yet, but my question is: how do you KNOW you're still in ketosis when you eat that many carbs? What happens to your body and how you feel when you go over?
    TL;DR: how can you tell if your body is out of ketosis? What changes do you experience?
    Thanks!
    Edit: thanks for all the responses! To clarify: I'm not worried at all! Just curious! I'm on a vacation where I hike all day and visit vineyards. I know I'm not gonna be strict Keto at the moment. I will be when I get back. I just noticed some bodily changes, and wanted to know what people experienced when they're out of ketosis. KCKO!

    Most don't, they speculate. If they gain any water weight or feel more hungry than usual, they conclude they are not in ketosis when that's not necessarily true. I wouldn't stress it, avoid the ketosis anxiety and focus on how you feel.

EXCESS Salt in Body Symptoms:4 SIGNS YOUR BODY SENDS WHEN YOU EAT TOO MUCH SALT;salt eating signs Thanks For Watching This Video: EXCESS Salt in Body Symptoms:4 SIGNS YOUR BODY SENDS WHEN YOU EAT TOO MUCH SALT;salt eating signs : https://youtu.be/A9dt-cmtdww Don't forget to Subscribe for updates: https://goo.gl/WqO5fo When your doctor diagnoses you with hypertension it is a clear sign that you are eating too much salt. Still, eating too much sodium has many other negative effects on the health besides increasing the blood pressure. Eating a meal that is rich in salt can make you feel weird or uncomfortable. These 4 symptoms are usually felt after eating too much salt. FREQUENT URINATION The need to urinate often usually comes after drinking plenty of water. Did you know that the same happens when you eat too much salt? Consuming lots of salt makes the kidneys work overtime in order to remove it from the body which results in frequent urination. PERSISTENT HEADACHES The BMJ recently published a study that included adults who ate 3,500 mg of sodium every day and adults who took only 1,500 mg. Those who got the larger amount suffered more frequently from headaches then those who took

Top Five Signs Your Body Is In Ketosis

When starting a ketogenic diet the end goal is to establish a state of ketosis. If you are new to this whole keto thing, being in ketosis means your body has switched over from using glucose (sugar from the carbs we ingest) for fuel to an alternate fuel called ketones (ketones are made from the breakdown of fatty acids in the liver). One of the first questions I always get is "How will I know when I am in ketosis"? Below are my top five indicators your body has switched over to ketogenic state. 1. Keto Breath Known to only last a few weeks, this can be an annoying side effect. Caused by an elevated level of acetone (specific ketone offender) released through your sweat, urine or breath. Keto breath has been known to have metallic or even over ripened fruity taste. Be sure to drink plenty of water, and have an extra stash of sugar-free gum. 2. Mental Focus Ketones are an extremely potent fuel source for the brain. With your brain running more on ketones than glucose; the high amount of fats that you are consuming (75-80% of your diet should be coming from high-quality fat sources) your liver is converting into energy for your brain. Mental focus can differ from person to person. How Continue reading >>

    Hello, Keto veterans out there! How do I know if I'm in ketosis? I know it's not overly necessary to know, but I'm curious.
    I've been sticking to Keto faithfully for 5 days now, keeping my macros at 5%C-25%P-70%F. I've never been over 20g of net carbs since I started, and I have been hitting my 70-75% fat macro almost perfectly.
    I have read about the "ketosis" signs to look for ('fruity' breath, different smell to urine, metalic taste in the mouth, more energy), but I haven't noticed any of these. The only thing is that I lost 2 lbs. overnight. I also haven't been experiencing the dreaded "carb flu" that everyone talks about, but that may be because I've been keeping my fat intake quite high (70-75%) and drinking plenty of water (10-12 glasses at least). Also in the past month I have been reducing my carbs gradually down to about 100-125g/day, until I started keto five days ago.
    Is there anyway to know for sure?
    (Unfortunately, I don't have any Keto strips, at the moment - they don't sell them near here, so I had to order them online. They're in the mail.)

    My personal glucose-to-ketones transition may be unique, but I remember sitting at the dining room table, doing homework on my laptop, when I got the sudden urge to go for a run or exercise or something.
    I ended up cleaning up the whole apartment (at the time I was attending college and had 4 housemates - I'm sure you can imagine how messy it was). I literally could not continue sitting and clacking away at the keyboard. I had to move.
    That was my transition and I knew, without a doubt, I had entered ketosis. Perhaps your experience will be similar.

    Hello, Keto veterans out there! How do I know if I'm in ketosis? I know it's not overly necessary to know, but I'm curious.
    I've been sticking to Keto faithfully for 5 days now, keeping my macros at 5%C-25%P-70%F. I've never been over 20g of net carbs since I started, and I have been hitting my 70-75% fat macro almost perfectly. It would be virtually impossible to NOT be in ketosis at this point. You're well on your way to being fully keto-adapted.
    I have read about the "ketosis" signs to look for ('fruity' breath, different smell to urine, metalic taste in the mouth, more energy), but I haven't noticed any of these. Many people do NOT experience those. Those are signs during the initial entry into ketosis usually experienced by someone who's done a much-more drastic dietary change than you've done.
    If you're used to eating 50-60% carbs, then go into ketosis, you'll likely experience some or all of those symptoms for a day or two, sometimes more. For someone that's reduced carbohydrate more gradually, and is already relatively low-carb, the shift is often asymptomatic.
    The only thing is that I lost 2 lbs. overnight. I also haven't been experiencing the dreaded "carb flu" that everyone talks about, but that may be because I've been keeping my fat intake quite high (70-75%) and drinking plenty of water (10-12 glasses at least). Also in the past month I have been reducing my carbs gradually down to about 100-125g/day, until I started keto five days ago. The weight-loss is likely a result of lost water/glycogen as you push further into keto-adaptation. Because you were already quite low-carb, you'll likely not experience the 'keto-flu' or other symptoms.
    Is there anyway to know for sure?
    (Unfortunately, I don't have any Keto strips, at the moment - they don't sell them near here, so I had to order them online. They're in the mail.) Ketostix sometimes don't even register, especially for those of us that stay well-hydrated. If you test on a day when your water intake is lower, you'll most definitely get a pink result. Purple would mean you're very dehydrated ...
    If you've already been under 100g and at a reasonable caloric intake, it's also quite possible you already WERE in ketosis and didn't know it. Many people mistakenly think you need to eat 20-30g to be in ketosis, and that's not necessarily the case.
    It's easier to GET ketogenic starting at 20-30g a day, and some find best glycemic control, etc., at very low levels, but most people eating 2000+ calories a day can easily maintain ketosis/keto-adaptation at 100g a day of carbohydrate if they're not sedentary.
    As an anecdotal example, for me to get OUT of ketosis takes 2-3 full SEDENTARY days of 150g + carbohydrate intake. There are some people that think I'm not ketogenic at 50 or 70g of carbohydrate a day . . . they're simply misinformed.
    Lyle McDonald - a leading expert on ketogenic diets - states:
    "Since many books give the 30 g/day value for a ketogenic diet, folks get a little anxious about carb intakes that are higher than that.
    However, strictly speaking, any diet with less than 100 g/day of carbohydrate will cause ketosis to develop to some degree (more ketones will be generated as carbs are lowered)." Those who engage in exercise, especially strength-training, can often eat a little more than others without issue. Lyle did some calculations (rough, by his own admission) and states:
    "The carbohydrate requirements for weight training actually aren’t that great. I did some rough calculations in The Ketogenic Diet and concluded that, for every 2 work sets (assuming a set length of 30-45 seconds) or so, you’ll need 5 grams of carbohydrates to replenish the glycogen used.
    So if you did a workout containing 24 work sets, you’d only need about 60 extra grams (24 sets * 5 grams/2 sets = 60 grams) of carbohydrate to replace the glycogen used." 24 sets is 4 sets of six exercises ... which is a fairly heavy day for many of us. I typically do 5 sets of 4 exercises every-other-day. This would be 20*5/2 = 50g ... however I'm a little larger than most so I'll typically have 50, 70 even 90g of carbohydrate on my strength-training days, depending on the effort.
    So, what I'm saying is if you were exercising, especially doing strength-training or any anaerobic interval training, etc., while eating 100-125g of carbohydrate a day, you were quite-possibly already IN ketosis . . .

Signs Of Being In Ketosis

The ketogenic diet has really begun gaining awareness and acceptance as a successful way not only to lose weight, but also to improve overall health, reduce cardiac risks, and as a treatment for many medical conditions, including diabetes, metabolic syndrome, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and more. When you follow a ketogenic diet correct – consuming about 80% of your daily calories from fat, 15% from protein, and less than 5% from carbohydrates – your body will enter into a state known as ketosis, where it adapts from burning carbs/glucose/sugars for energy to burning fats for fuel. In that “fat burning” state of ketosis, the liver turns fats into ketone bodies, which is the actual fuel source for the body’s cells. Many people do their research on how to properly change their diet to a high-fat low-carbohydrate ketogenic diet, learning which foods to eat and which not to eat. They set out on the new plan, confident they’ll be in ketosis and losing weight in no time…but then find themselves wondering, “How do I know if I’m in ketosis or not?“. Sound familiar? If that’s you, don’t worry, you’re not alone! Let’s talk about some of the signs you can watch f Continue reading >>

    I wasn’t sure which section I should post this in, my strategy is what I call the 4–2–1 plan, I fast 2 day non consecutive days a week, eat a low carb but not calorie restricted diet 4 days a week to keep the fat burning benefits of ketosis going and then I give myself 1 day a week to indulge and eat whatever I want, usually a Saturday pasta dinner and wonderful dessert. I also walk 4 to 6 miles a day during the week and 10 to 12 miles on Saturday.
    Low Carb plans such as Atkins can be very effective for some people including me, many people who start a low carb diet experience get what’s called the “ketosis flu” or the “induction flu” in the first few days while the body is adapting to burning ketones instead of glucose.
    The basic symptoms are:
    – Headaches
    – Nausea
    – Upset stomach
    – Lack of mental clarity (brain fog)
    – Sleepiness
    – Fatigue
    It’s called the “ketosis flu” for a reason: you feel sick. I’ve gone through it and it wasn’t a pleasant experience. Fortunately it only lasted 2 days but then suddenly I woke up feeling much better, less hungry and my energy level was really high and consistent throughout the day!
    The first time I thought to myself: “What the heck am I doing? I feel like I’m going to die!” but I persevered and when it was over I didn’t regret a thing because what I had gained mentally and physically was 100% worth it.
    For those of you that are going through the ketosis flu, don’t give up! I know you feel like it’s never going to get better but stick with it and you´ll be so happy you did! I’m telling you, waking up refreshed for the first time in years, not getting the afternoon “blah” feeling and stuffing my face with carbs to try to boost my energy is the best side effect of the low carb diet I’ve experienced. Okay, losing weight while eating good food, feeling full and satisfied is great too.
    First you have to understand why your body is reacting this way. Your body’s been burning glucose for energy so it’s basically full of enzymes that are waiting to deal with the carbs you eat, but now the body needs to make new enzymes that burn fat for fuel instead of carbs, and the transition period causes the flu-like symptoms.
    There are some things you can do to lessen the symptoms of the ketosis flu and to make it go away sooner (to force the body to transition sooner) Ok, let’s get to the good part – what to do:
    First of all – you’re probably dehydrated. Drink PLENTY of water while you’re on a low carb diet, and then drink some more.
    Watch your electrolytes. When the body is getting rid of excess insulin from your former carb-crazy diet you´ll lose lots of fluids that have been retained in your body. This causes the rapid weight loss most people see in their first few days of ketosis, it’s mostly water, sorry. When you lose all the retained water you also lose electrolytes like sodium, magnesium and potassium. When you’re lacking them you´ll feel like crap so when you’re feeling really ill on the ketosis flu try things like chicken/beef broth and look for foods rich in these minerals. Take a multi-vitamin and a multi-mineral.
    Ok, here is where people throw the red flag – Eat more fat – Yup, I said MORE fat. Have some butter, just not on a roll, eat some bacon and eggs for breakfast, just skip the potatoes and toast. This will force your body to hurry up the transition. You´ll think this is crazy and think you´ll never get lose weight eating this way, but you will.
    Don’t eat too much protein – The body can transform protein into glucose so if you eat too much of it in the first days it will slow down the transition. Go for fatty meat and cheese if you can, add fat to protein shakes etc.
    Drink water, replenish electrolytes (sodium, magnesium, potassium) with food and supplements, drink broth, eat fat and not too much protein.
    I hope this helps, and have a great day
    Charles
