A Shortcut Into Ketosis
Getting into ketosis is the goal of the keto diet. Ketosis is when the body is flooded with ketones.
When the body has used up all the glycogen (blood sugar) in the system, then you will start burning up fat. The ketones in the blood facilitate the burning of fat.
The keto diet is designed to force the body to switch how it gets energy and uses energy. To switch from using sugar to using fat.
We talk a lot about how the diet is the only way to get into ketosis. And that is true…mostly.
There are a couple of shortcuts to help the body switch over to ketosis.
One of the shortcuts is intermittent fasting. Leaving at least 12 hours between dinner and breakfast or lunch the next day will let the body start producing ketones. That way, every night your body practices going into ketosis.
There is another dietary hack that you can use as a shortcut into ketosis..
It is MCTs.
MCT stands for Medium Chain Triglycerides. It is derived from coconut oil.
We have a powdered form, which tends to be easier on the digestion. You can find it at https://rockthatketo.com/mct.
Back to what MCT oil does for you.
MCT is a form of healthy fat that helps your body produce ketones. The sooner your body produces ketones, the sooner the fat starts disappearing.
So while you are doing the keto diet, this is one of the very few ways to help it along. Adding MCT will speed up the process.
Speed Is Important
Speeding up the process is really important. Why? The sooner you start actually losing weight, the more likely you are to stay the course, stay on the diet.
And losing weight is the goal, not the diet. The diet is the way you get to weight loss.
MCT’s will help you get a shortcut into ketosis quicker.
