7 Ways To Speed Up Getting into Ketosis
If you are starting Keto, which many people do in the new year, you will want maximum results for minimum effort.
There are ways to boost the keto diet to get things moving quicker.
Sometimes we need to get ready for an event, like a wedding. Or maybe that school reunion. Bathing suit weather could be approaching.
Whatever your reason, here are some tips to speed things along.
1. Lower Carbs in the diet.
This is a very common way to jump start ketosis. This is commonly done when people hit a weight loss plateau.
Lower the carbs to half of what you are currently eating. Try that for a week or so and see what happens.
2. Raise the Fat
This one is always counter intuitive. Sometimes raising the fat level compared to everything else will kick start the process.
People even do Fat Fasts where they eat almost only fat for 3 days or so (don’t go longer than that).
3. Increase Physical Activity
I don’t recommend massive changes in your exercise level. Just increase it some. If you start a running program when you haven’t already been doing it, you might increase your hunger more than usual.
Sometimes people exercise and get so hungry they eat more calories than they burn.
Just walk, or move around more. Do standing pushups leaning on the wall. As you walk through the house add in deep knee bends. Get your blood circulating.
Walking in general is a great exercise you can do for life, if you are healthy enough. All steady exercise can help clear the glycogen out of the blood. That is the first thing you need to get into ketosis.
4. Protein Intake
Always be watching your macros in Keto. If your protein intake starts to inch up, your weight loss can stall. Keep the protein to around 20% of daily calories.
5. Intermittent Fasting
We’ve talked about this a lot. It’s one of the best things you can do for yourself. Whether or not you are doing keto or not, I.F. is one of the most amazing things you can do for your long term health.
If you want to lose weight it’s amazing. If you want to have a long healthy life it’s the single best thing everyone can do. Try not eating between dinner at night, and lunch the next day. It’s that simple.
6. Taking MCT oil.
MCT oil is from coconuts. It helps the body start making ketones even if the glycogen is not out of the bloodstream! That’s an amazing thing.
It also helps the brain to function. You will be amazed at how well your mental functions improve.
7. Testing Ketone Levels
If you want to know where you stand, you can get a ketone testing device. The strips don’t work, they are a waste of money.
You have to get the one that measures levels in the blood.
Get going. Get slim. These are your 7 Ways To Speed Up Getting into Ketosis.
