How To Get Into Ketosis FAST! (UNDER 24 HOURS GUARANTEED) 5 Easy HACKS

How to get into ketosis fast.
Under 24 hours, guaranteed.
Five easy hacks.
In the last few years,
ketogenic diets have taken
the health and fitness industry by storm.
Why?
Because they promise swift weight loss,
and incredible surges of energy.
Not to mention all the
other health benefits,
like better cardiovascular health!
Unfortunately, getting
into ketosis can be a true
challenge, if not an
absolute pain in the neck.
And perhaps that’s why many
people who want to shed
some weight shy away from it.
If you’re one of those people, boy,
you’re in for a treat.
In this video, I’m going to
show you how you can fire
your metabolic engines and
rapidly kickstart ketosis.
Hi there folks!
I’m the founder and CEO
of Activated Potential,
as well as the author of the
Ultimate Energy Crash Course,
the definitive guide that
helps people optimize
their biology and improve their energy.
In this video, we’ll go
over five steps you can take
to get into ketosis fast!
If you’re watching this video,
I’m guessing that you
already know what ketosis is,
and that you know you
need to maintain a very
low-carb diet to be able to
get into a ketogenic state.
When we’re in ketosis,
many of us experience
unbelievable energy, and ketosis
has numerous health benefits.
But getting into ketosis can be a hassle.
It takes some time for your
body to switch from using
carbs as energy to using fat as energy.
And during the transition,
you might feel fatigued,
and just all around crappy.
But luckily, we can take
effective steps to help us
achieve ketosis faster.
Step number one: Eat relatively low-carb.
The first step in getting
into ketosis faster is to
get into it slower.
I know that sounds counterintuitive,
but what I mean is that you
want to gradually transition
your diet from what it is
now to what it would be
under a full ketogenic diet.
You can think of this step
as a preparatory step.
You’re warming up your engines
before accelerating all out!
So what should you do?
For a couple days, eat a
relatively low-carb diet
before tackling a full ketogenic diet.
This will help you gradually
decrease your glycogen
stores so your transition
is smooth and gentle.
Personally, if I’m planning to get into
ketosis, I never skip this step
because it helps me tremendously.
Granted, I already do eat a
pretty low-carb diet most of
the time, so my body’s used to it.
Therefore, when I cut
out carbs a little more,
there isn’t a big shock to my system.
Anyway, the key here is to
decrease your carb intake so
you don’t completely fill
up your glycogen stores.
Eat an amount that will
allow your glycogen stores
to slowly get used up.
That way, when you go full keto,
you don’t have to wait so
long for them to deplete.
Step number two: Exercise.
The second step in achieving
ketosis faster is exercise!
But not just any exercise.
You should engage in some
high-intensity exercise like
high-intensity interval training,
otherwise known HIIT.
But because high-intensity
exercises can initially
spike up your blood sugar,
you want to follow it up
with some longer, lower-intensity cardio.
This would be your typical
slow, steady-state cardio.
Doing this will allow your
body to deplete its glycogen
stores faster, and ultimately
reach ketosis faster.
Do this every other day
until you reach ketosis.
Let me quickly add another
reason why exercise
will be so effective.
If you do it regularly, it
will give you a significant
energy boost to help you
combat the fatigue you might
feel while transitioning into ketosis!
Plus, you get all the added
health benefits of exercise
as a bonus!
Step number three: Love the fat.
I’m not referring to your love handles,
though of course we at Activated Potential
know how important it is to
fully accept and love yourself.
But if you have love handles
and want to get rid of them
using ketosis, this step will help a lot!
Now we’re getting into the exciting stuff.
What I want to talk about
is a natural fat that can
increase the ketones in your blood.
This fat is a neutral oil called MCT oil.
I absolutely love this
stuff, and I feel a definite
energy boost when I use it.
I take it with almost every meal I have,
and when I’m trying to get into ketosis,
I ramp up my intake!
But not all MCT oils are created equal.
There are four kinds of MCT oil.
First one is C12, second is C10,
then C8 and finally C6.
C12 doesn’t work to raise your ketones.
C10 does, but it’s pretty inefficient.
And C6?
Well, it’s pretty hard to get a hold of
and can be quite harsh on your stomach.
So you want to try to get C8!
Or, a mix of C8 and C10
if you can’t get pure C8.
But definitely aim for pure C8.
As a side note, MCT oils can
also be found in coconut oil!
Now, using only coconut
oil is ineffective.
But if you like, use it in
conjunction with C8 and C10
for a little help.
Back to MCT oils.
Let me insert a word of
warning: MCT oils can cause
gastric problems and give you diarrhea.
So be careful and start
with small amounts.
So your stomach gets used to
it, then it’s not a problem.
You should be able to build up
to larger quantities over
time without any issues.
Step number four: Go exogenous.
Now if you want something a
bit more advanced than MCT oil,
you could go for exogenous ketones.
They aren’t as natural as MCT oil,
so they could be a little riskier.
But if you want to get into ketosis fast,
then this is something you might consider.
So what are exogenous ketones?
Well, exogenous means they
come from outside your body,
and you already know what they are.
Most exogenous ketones are
in the form of BHB salts.
Most of them are, these are fine.
There are a number of
different manufacturers,
so you have many to choose from.
Let me add another quick warning though.
Exogenous ketones taste pretty bad,
so manufacturers usually add in a lot
of flavorings or sweeteners.
But I’d recommend going
for the most natural
exogenous ketones you can find.
Check the ingredients list!
Now, you can find exogenous
ketones in both liquid
and powder form.
Choose the one that suits you best.
Supplementing with exogenous
ketones is truly one
of the most effective ways
to get into ketosis faster,
and the best part is that
you feel the energy-boosting
benefits almost immediately.
If you’re feeling adventurous,
definitely try it out!
Step number five: Fast.
So this is the last step
I have for you today.
It’s the most extreme
one, but it might also be
the most effective.
And that is fasting.
You probably already know what fasting is.
But I just want to emphasize
that when you fast,
you should not consume
anything else other than
water, black coffee, and tea.
And you can’t add any milk or
sugar to your coffee or tea.
But if you were fasting
for longer periods of time,
then you could add in some
salt or broth if you wanted.
If you fast to speed up ketosis,
you’ll usually only need
to fast for 24 to 48 hours.
And most people won’t
need anything but water.
Since you’re not consuming
any carbs, protein or fat,
you’ll get into ketosis
faster than you would
on a very low-carb diet.
But if you don’t want
to go for a full fast,
then you could also do
something called a fat fast.
This is where you consume
water, black coffee,
and tea as before, but
you also consume fat.
Now, we don’t exactly know
how this affects getting
into ketosis, but since
you’re still not consuming
any carbs or protein, it
shouldn’t slow you down.
But as always, the body
is extremely complicated,
and it might have some
effects we don’t exactly
know about yet.
But if I’m planning to get into ketosis,
I usually prefer to do a fat fast.
That’s because I’ve observed no difference
between a water fast and a fat fast,
at least in terms of achieving ketosis.
In fact, when I do a fat
fast and consume MCT oil,
I feel that I can get
into ketosis even faster!
If I follow all the steps in this video,
I can get a very big rise in
my blood ketone levels in as
little as one day.
And I’d say that it never
takes longer than two days
for me to get into full-blown ketosis.
Now, we’re all different
and it might take you
longer, but these steps
will definitely help you.
Now, I want to add in a quick note
about measuring your ketosis.
Stay away from keto strips.
Measuring the ketone
level in your urine is
ineffective, and you’re
better off just saving your
money and measuring by feel.
But if you want some
quantifiable way of knowing
if you’ve achieved ketosis,
then get a blood checker.
You can get them pretty
inexpensively these days,
and as a bonus they can be
used to measure your blood
glucose levels as well.
But again, you don’t really need one.
You’d be fine just going off how you feel.
Well, we’ve gone over a lot!
