into the Keto diet I was off for six
weeks
I took a six-week break I went on
holiday and came back, it took me a little
bit to get my head around, work out when
I’m going to go back onto keto set the
date as first of May, stuck to it, first of
May, documented the day, I shared the other day
in my full daily eating, first day back
on keto I love it I’m feeling awesome
and what I did was I measured with keto
sticks because in the comments you were
asking me about how long does it take to
get ketosis how long did it take me and
remember each person is different so
what works for me and what is my
situation might be different for you so
what I did was I used my ketostix
and I measured from first thing first of
May, first thing in the morning every few
hours or so I wouldn’t recommend usually
measuring every few hours but I wanted
to know as accurate as possible the
exact moment that I went into ketosis
so I started Monday morning on the first
of May and on the second of May, so on the
second day at 2:00 p.m. 2nd of May I got
a positive reading on a keto stick that
I was in ketosis, so it took me a little
over a day and I’ll put a little picture
of here of my keto stick what the
positive looked like so it took me 1 and
a half days barely to get into ketosis
following the tips that I’m going to
share today, for me, I was keto adapted
for six months so having six weeks off
it took me a day and a half to get back
into keto. First time around I didn’t
track and I didn’t use keto sticks until
about a month into it so I can’t say for
sure but knowing now how I feel on keto it
probably took me about a week or so
first time around
and now like a day and a half so my body
is obviously used to being keto fat
adapted so getting straight back into it
was a lot easier than I thought it would
and I haven’t had any Keto flu symptoms
if that’s something as well first time
around I definitely suffered from Keto
flu symptoms and so yeah so on to my
five tips, tip number one lower your
carbs, it’s obvious low carb high fat diet
but I find it easy to track in a
notebook I shared that in my full day of
eating video I’ve got a handwritten
notebook I just write down all my foods
and the carbs next to it, you can go into
it with a cab figure in mind or you can
kind of go for as low as possible I like
to start my day a lot of the times with
just eggs so then there’s like virtually
no carbs and once am more into it I do
eggs and a veg or two and if you’re
just when I was just starting out at the
very beginning I had eggs with loads of
veggies to adapt and ease into it so
play around and work out if you’ve never
done it before start with higher carbs
so maybe eggs and a few veg and just sort
of cut out the breads and the pastas and
the rice and the chips and the sweets
and all of that just start as as low as
you can cope with and then go lower
until you get to a point of being in
ketosis, that’s what I found and also
actually definitely have a chat with a
health professional don’t just go and
take my advice I’m sharing the
experience and what’s worked for me but
definitely huge disclaimer go and speak
with a health professional with your GP
with your health professional of choice get
some blood tests done and make sure that
you are in a healthy space and that you
have your doctor’s support, it can be
difficult with the whole low fat
dogma going around but people are
switching on to high fat and get just
speak with a doctor before going and
rushing into changing your diet okay
disclaimer over, so I’m sharing my
experience take from it what you want
what you will and experiment and see
what works so yes definitely lower carbs
and I managed to on the first day back
to 18 net carbs but first day when I
started six seven eight months ago I
was having
having probably around the 50 gram mark
when I was starting because I wasn’t
used to it now I’m kind of used to
having 18 net grams of carbs it’s
definitely on the low you wouldn’t want
to go any lower than that it’s
definitely on the lower side of carbs but
between 18 and 50 once you’re starting
out and find your sweet spot that you
feel good you get into ketosis and you
lose weight and that’s going to be
different for everybody so yeah number
one lower your carbs number two increase
your fats because this is a low carb
high fat and as I said before the whole
low-fat dogma the whole low-fat industry
its kind of brainwashed us all into
thinking that fats are the devil and bad
for you, well I lost 16 kilos or
30-something pounds on low carb high fat
way of life I feel awesome I’ve never
been healthier never been happier
so that is thanks to lowering my carbs
and increasing, my the cat has just come
and he’s bumped me you don’t want to see
the mess of this room but he’s just done
to me so I get distracted easily…
lower carb high fat, so I cook
everything in butter and I add more
butter I have hot chocolate in the
morning I add butter to it through the
day I have mayonnaise, sour cream, cheese.
I’ve shared heaps of videos on
increasing your fats and ways to increase
your fat just have your meal your meals
on low carb high fat your macros, oh he’s
trying to jump him up, Oh cat okay he’s
had his moment, and your carbs are about
5% your protein 20 to 25% and then the
rest is fat so we’re talking 70 to 80
grams of fat everyday 60/70/80 depending on
exactly how your macros and so that’s fat
high, carbs low that’s number one number
two, okay number three is your
electrolytes so important for your
electrolytes I’m talking salt potassium
magnesium you need to keep these up when
you’re on keto because processed foods
and all the foods that you eat that are
carb filled are full of all of those
ingredients, made up of all those elements there’s
salt in everything and that’s process
when you’re having unprocessed foods and
you’re not eating packaged
snacks and foods you are going to miss
out on your salt magnesium potassium and
again speak to your health professional
and get some supplements it is so
important otherwise you will feel awful
I take a supplement every day with
magnesium and potassium in it and other
vitamins and minerals and then I have
vegetable stock, I went searching for a
vegetable stock that had as little nasty
ingredients with as natural as possible
and it’s full of salt I found the
highest salt one I could and I find
having, I have a cup of stock cubes
in half and I have half the stock cube
in a cup of boiling water and I have it
pretty much every day and I feel good
and days when I don’t have it sometimes I
actually wake up through the middle of
night with cramps or I’ve woken up feeling
really dizzy and it’s because I didn’t
have my salt so yeah definitely is so
important to hit your salt levels up so
electrolytes is number three having your
electrolytes good will help you get into
ketosis and help you feel amazing and
awesome and not have awful keto flu
feelings and number four we’re moving
through this nicely, number four is water
no matter what diet you’re on and no matter
what you, you’re doing for drinking water
is important but even so, more so on keto
we need to flush out our system we need
to just it’s so important to drink water
and I always have a bottle of water with
me and I’m drinking water like a crazy
person I find I’m thirstier yeah but I’m
also just I just know it’s so important
so drinking water is so important to get
into ketosis to stay in ketosis and to
keep you healthy so just drink water
have a bottle of water with you at all
times
drink a cup of water with meals just
drink water, water is so important, number
four and number five is one which I am
always hesitant to, that if you know me and
even following my channel, that is to
move to try, and do a smidge of exercise
I very very late to adding exercise into
my keto diet journey it’s only been the
last month or two that I’ve had the urge
to move and it’s really, my exercise
has been walking and yoga and I have
this DVD of ten minute kickboxing
workouts which for me ten minutes is
like
maximum of exercise activity time, so I’m
not talking go out and go crazy with
exercise I found the last few days just
doing my 10 minute workout just moving I
feel really good and it helped me also I
feel get into Ketosis so it can just be
walking it doesn’t need to be crazy I
know that people do cardio and
weightlifting
I personally haven’t gotten to that my
Husband does that side of things
I don’t, yes I know I said before I
probably should do a little more
exercise or do exercise at all but
definitely moving is another
element of the whole package of getting
you into ketosis and of staying ketosis
of getting healthy and staying healthy.
So there you go those are my five tips
to help you get into ketosis to stay in
ketosis I’m in Ketosis now and I just
love this feeling this energy I wake up
with energy rather than feeling
exhausted I’ve been waking up the last
six weeks I’ve forgotten how it feels to
wake up and feel exhausted to have a
10:00 a.m. slump and 3:00 p.m. slump now
I’m just no more slumps I feel energy I
feel awesome and I’m looking forward to
getting back on the weight-loss train
