What Is Ketosis, And How Long Does It Take To Get Into Ketosis?

Ketosis is a natural state of the body in which it is fueled almost solely by fat. This happens when a person fasts or adheres to a very low carbohydrate diet. The exciting thing about ketosis and ketogenic diets is that you can lose a lot of weight while eating a normal quantity of food. You don’t have to suffer through skimpy portions. There are other benefits of keeping a ketogenic diet as well. These will be explained in the following article. An Explanation of Ketosis The root “keto” in the word ketosis comes from the type of fuel that the body produces when blood sugar is in low supply. The small molecules that are used as fuel are called “ketones.” If you consume very few carbohydrates and only a moderate amount of protein, then the body begins to produce ketones. Ketones are made by the liver from fat. Both the body and the brain can use them as fuel. The brain cannot directly function from fat. It must convert the fat into ketones.

    So what happens during cardio when you're in ketosis?




    1 Answer







    One of the best answers to this can be found if you Google Peter Attia's presentations that give an awesome summary on the subject.
    Generally speaking, if you are healthy (not Type 1 diabetic), the energy in your mitochondria is generated from ketone bodies that get converted into Acetyl CoA and enter the Krebs cycle, as opposed to when Acetyl CoA is generated from pyruvate (a byproduct of anaerobic glucose metabolism).
    Ketone bodies are a "cleaner" and a more stable fuel for cardio/endurance exercise (no "bonking" or blood glucose/insuline fluctuations that come from traditional carb-refeeding).

    Ketone bodies typically, then, come as a byproduct of body fat metabolism. Essentially, you just ecome a "fat-burning machine", when you exercise in the state of ketosis.
