In this video we’re talking about how to get
into ketosis fast.
On average it takes 2 to 3 weeks, 2 to 4 weeks
to make that metabolic shift and get into
ketosis and a lot of people are trying to
do that in a shorter duration, do it much
more quickly.
I have some different strategies that I share
with people in order to help them do that.
I’m gonna share those with you.
But real quick before we jump into those,
let’s do a quick recap on ketosis.
Now ketosis is when you make a metabolic shift
from burning sugar for energy to burning fat
and ketones for energy.
Now a ketogenic diet is a diet that is high
in fat, moderate in protein, and low in carbohydrates.
On average it should be 50 grams of carbohydrates
or less when you’re following a ketogenic
diet.
Now that we covered that, let’s go ahead and
talk about some of these different strategies.
Now the first thing that you can do to get
into ketosis fast is do a fast.
You can do this by doing a water fast or you
can do a bone broth fast.
If you do this fast and you do it over a three-day
period, your body is gonna have no other choice
but to basically jump into that ketogenic
state and start burning fat for energy because
it’s gonna burn through the glycogen stores,
burn up all that blood sugar and it’s going
to go to that fat on your body and start using
that.
Doing a water fast or a bone broth fast over
a three-day period is a great way to kick-start
that state of ketosis.
The next thing that you can do is increase
your workout.
If you do a really heavy workout, then that,
almost like the water fast, it’s gonna burn
through those glycogen stores, burn through
the blood sugar.
If you’re not refilling your your glycogen
stores by consuming carbohydrates, then it’s
going to switch over to that fat-burning state
and start really throwing you into that ketosis
much more quickly than if you were to just
follow the ketogenic diet over a couple-week
period.
I mean when I’m doing a really intense workout
like I am right now because I’m training for
a big race, it is so easy for me to stay in
ketosis because I’m flying through that blood
sugar, burning through that glycogen store
and then I’m going right to those ketones
for energy and it’s that simple.
If you want to really throw yourself into
ketosis, launch into ketosis, really increase
your workouts and it’s going to be very simple.
The next thing that you can do, is use the
fasting mimicking diet.
If you’re not familiar with this essentially
what it is, is you eat an avocado in the morning
and a green drink in the morning and then
at night you eat another avocado and have
a green drink and you do this over a five
day period.
While you’re following this fasting mimicking
diet, it really launches you into ketosis.
For people who are well-adapted and can go
in and out of ketosis and do it in a quick
period of time, you can follow the fast and
mimicking diet and you can be right in ketosis
in a 24-hour period.
For people who are not in ketosis and they
really want to get in, if you follow the fasting
mimicking diet, you can actually launch right
into ketosis in a five day period and it works
very well.
A fasting mimicking diet, simply eating an
avocado and green drink in the morning and
night, doing it for five days in a row and
that really launches you into ketosis and
then jump on the ketogenic diet from there
and you’re good to go.
The next thing that you can do and the last
tip I’m going to give you, is if you want
to really push ketosis and you’re on a ketogenic
diet, what you can follow is a regimen that
really pushes a high amount of fat and also
consumes some sea salt in order to help give
you the electrolytes, give you the minerals
that are needed in order to really boost that
ketogenic state.
Now the way that we do it, is we use two tablespoons
of butter, two tablespoons of coconut oil
and a teaspoon of sea salt once a day.
Do that once a day well trying to get into
ketosis following the ketogenic diet and it’s
really going to help launch you forward it
as well.
These tips right here are all going to be
very beneficial.
Some of them you can combine them.
Some of them should be done on their own.
If you go ahead and implement these, you’re
going to be able to shorten the gap and shorten
that duration of time in which it takes to
get into the state of ketosis.
