How To Reach Ketosis In 3 Days
Ketosis is a state where your body is burning fat for fuel. Usually, there will be ketones in your blood (which is nothing to panic about) and your weight will drop off much faster.
You'll want to monitor your ketosis with this keto test kit.
To reach a state of ketosis, you'll need to train your body to burn fat for energy instead of carbs. The best way to do that will be to get most of your calories from fat - not carbs.
eat healthy fat and quit carbs
You daily diet should consist of about 20 to 50 grams of carbs, and 20 to 25% of your calories should come from protein. All the rest should come from fat.
This is a very fat-rich diet. By eating the fats, your body will realize that it doesn't need to retain fat stores. It has ample amounts of fat coming in. So, your body burns your fats more readily.
This is the reason why the keto diet is so powerful. It encourages the body to release the fat it's clinging on to.
When you starve your body of carbs, it has no recourse but to enter into a state of ketosis, which can be achieved in just 3 days.
Intermittent fasting (IF)
On its own, intermittent fasting is a very powerful strategy to follow. But when combined with a ketogenic diet, it is unstoppable. You will reach ketosis in 3 days and burn off the fat at your fullest potential.
Your body will be burning as much fat as it can within a given period. While you won't see results overnight, your fat loss journey will be greatly accelerated and you'll begin to lose weight optimally.
Exercise To burn off your carbs
To reach ketosis in 3 days, you need to deplete your glycogen stores. Ideally, you may wish to consume all your carbs in one meal. In the keto diet, it probably won't be much anyway.
Once you consume the carbs, your glycogen stores will be filled. The best way to drain them will be to exercise for an hour or so after your meal.
If you consume your carbs early in the day, the training session will deplete the glycogen reserves and leave your body in fat burning mode for the rest of the day.
Let your body do the rest
Many people want to reach ketosis in 24 hours. While it may be possible, it's best to set a goal of 3 days to achieve ketosis.
If you do everything I've outlined here and on this blog, you will reach ketosis in 3 days and you will stay in this fat-burning mode indefinitely.
For ketosis to kick in and for you to be successful with the keto diet, you should not overdo it. This means no rigorous exercising or overeating too much fat. Ketosis will happen, you just can't force it to happen in 24 hours.
The goal is to approach the keto diet gradually and sensibly. If you follow the rules, you will reach a state of ketosis in 3 days. Give yourself that time to adapt.
A ketogenic diet is a slightly tricky one because you're only in control for about half of the time. The rest is up to your body. Once you master the keto diet, you'll never look back.
