7 Signs You Might Be In Ketosis When Doing The Ketogenic Diet

One of the main goals of starting the ketogenic diet is to get your body into a metabolic state known as ketosis. Note: If you don’t know what the ketogenic is all about then check out the Ketogenic Diet: Beginner’s Guide to Keto and Weight Loss. This is when your body starts to produce a lot of ketones to supply energy for your body. Why is this good? Because it means your body has converted from a sugar-burner to a fat-burner. If your body is burning fat for energy then something amazing starts to happen. The fat on your body starts to disappear. But how do you know when you’re in ketosis? Besides using test strips or an instrument there are some signs that your body will give. 7 Signs You Might Be in Ketosis These don’t 100% guarantee that your body is in ketosis but if it is in ketosis then these signs will appear. 1. Weight Loss One of the obvious signs of ketosis is weight loss but this can also be pretty deceptive because many people don’t experience the kind of weight loss that they expect.

    On the initial stages of a ketogenic diet you typically keep your carb intake per day ideally less than 25g. Eating one serving of kamut therefore nearly doubles that budget all by itself, so it’s not surprising that it might interfere or disrupt ketosis.

    Hi,
    Kamut is high in carbohydrates and subtraction of its fibre content (which is essentially what the ‘net carbs’ means) does not negate its high carbohydrate contents effect on the body that much.
    To be in ketosis you need to have around 30g of carbohydrates per day (or less but some people can stay in ketosis at higher levels)
    So let’s assume you’re in the average range of needed 30g of carbohydrates to stay in ketosis. Kamut has 70g for one 100g serving. It’s simply too high in carbs for most people.

    Great question. In general the idea of net carbs is a farce. Net carbs are calculated taking total carbohydrate content and subtracting the fiber portion to come up with a net carb total. Unfortunately, the net carb is usually underestimating real carb intake and thus kicking you out of ketosis. It’s important to understand how the food you are consuming is impacting your body specifically. Some can tolerate 20-gm or 50 gm or 100 gm before being kicked out of ketosis, while others who are quite insulin/leptin resistant will need to significantly reduce their carbohydrate intake to achieve real ketosis. My advice would be to avoid grains in general if trying to maintain ketosis. Hope that helps!
