4 Ways To Get Into KETOSIS (#1 Is The FASTEST)

November 4, 2019 19 By William Morgan


hey guys so in today’s video I’m just
gonna quickly talk about how to get into
ketosis right so what is ketosis exactly
because you’ve heard this a lot
maybe you attribute it to the ketogenic
diet maybe you attribute it to other
things that’s what I’m gonna clarify
first so ketosis is basically where
you’re using a different source of
energy for fuel so our primary source of
energy for fuel in the body is going to
be glucose right which is going to be
metabolized through things like
carbohydrates and protein that consuming
and some fats like glycerol
but basically glucose is as fueling our
muscles in our brain for the most part
so what ketosis is is when you start to
produce something called ketone bodies
like acetone and beta-hydroxybutyrate
and these ketone bodies are metabolized
from fat when you run out of glycogen in
the body and so when you run out of
glycogen because of a number of reasons
on your body begins to produce these
ketone bodies in order to fuel your body
your brain and actually some of your
muscles as well so um
ketosis is a perfectly normal metabolic
state and everybody has slightly
elevated ketone bodies when they wake up
in the morning because they’ve been
fasted for a while right when you’re
sleeping you’re not eating your glycogen
is getting depleted and so ketone bodies
begin to be produced in a higher amount
so that brings me to my first point on
how you can actually get into a state of
ketosis before we get into that let’s
talk about why you’d want to do this in
the first place because that’s important
right so ketosis is actually been shown
to be good for some neurological
diseases
um and it’s good for type 2 diabetes
it’s been shown to be correlated with
lessen obesity and that’s a very
complicated topic and more studies need
to be done especially in in the realms
of neurological diseases like depression
schizophrenia ADHD um but there is some
potential there with animal studies and
being in a state of ketosis is really
good for things like mitochondrial
efficiency biogenesis different things
like BDNF or neurogenesis brain derived
neurotrophic factor the growth of new
brain cells that’s something which seems
to kind of flourish when you’re in a
state of ketosis so there are many
different benefits and it’s worth I
personally think as long as you’re
somewhat healthy is to um slip in and
out of a state of ketosis through
different changes to your nutrition and
lifestyle habits
the first way is obviously to stop
eating right too fast and when you fast
after a certain point you will begin to
enter a state of ketosis when you need
the energy from ketone bodies and how
long this takes is gonna depend on a
number of different factors for example
what the last meal you ate was if you
ate less carbohydrates more fat and a
moderate amount of protein for your last
meal before you start to fast you’re
going to slip into a state of ketosis
much more rapidly than somebody who ate
a bunch of potatoes and sugary foods
right generally it’s gonna take about 48
72 hours for that kind of process to
really begin and for your ketone levels
to increase to what one would consider
light to medium ketosis so another way
is to eat in a way that’s going to mimic
not eating right so let me explain what
that means you’ve heard of the ketogenic
diet right and basically that’s very
high fat moderate protein and low in
carbohydrates and that’s to reduce the
glucose in your body and it’s moderate
and protein and high in protein because
too much protein is actually going to
metabolize into glucose through a
process called gluconeogenesis
so that diet or the ketogenic diet
promotes a state of constant ketosis
basically you’re fasting but you’re full
and that’s kind of the way I like to
look at it so increasing the fat and
lowering your carbohydrates to a very
very very low amount is going to help
you enter a state of ketosis you don’t
necessarily have to do that and that’s
why fasting is a great option but again
like I said you’re going to enter a
state of deep a ketosis much easier in a
fast if you’re already eating a
ketogenic based diet it doesn’t mean I
recommend it but that’s just the truth
of the matter so you can also do things
like increase coconut oil consumption
and that’s because coconut oil is
special because it has something called
MCTS or medium chain triglycerides now
medium chain triglycerides are different
than other fats because they’ve
metabolized very quickly into energy and
become ketones you can also by MCT oil
straight in a bottle which is
concentrated from things like palm oil
and coconut oil for a harder hit you
could say so the main idea here for
ketosis is to deplete glucose so that
your body must begin producing this
alternative
fuel source so that brings us to
exercise right because exercise is gonna
do a very similar thing after you’re
done with exercise you’re going to be
producing your ketone bodies as long as
you’ve depleted some of that glucose in
your body so yeah physical exercise may
help ramp up your ketone body production
but it doesn’t necessarily mean that
being in a state of ketosis after a
short-term fast or just up in your fat
for a day or engaging in physical
activity is going that’s not going to
mean that the ketones are going to be
effectively used for your body right
because your body’s been so used to
glucose as its primary fuel source and
that brings me to the distinction
between nutritional ketosis and keto
adaptation so nutritional ketosis for
example would occur if I just eat
ketogenic type foods for like a few days
maybe a week and I enter that state of
ketosis
Paquito adaptation basically refers to
the idea of ketone bodies increasing to
the point where they become your primary
source of fuel and that happens after a
month or two or sometimes more and
continuously over the months as you eat
in a ketogenic style your body becomes
more efficient using a ketone bodies for
fuel so that’s a difference that you
should keep in mind so that’s it for the
video whether you should do this is
completely up to you but there have been
some benefits shown when it’s done
correctly so thanks for watching and
I’ll see you guys in the next video be
sure to subscribe and let me know down
below if you’ve ever experimented with
any sort of ketogenic diet or you find
there are certain advantages for you
such as cognitive thinking or endurance
performance when you’re in a state of
ketosis so put your comments down below
I’ll see you guys next time peace
