Recently, ketogenic diets and intermittent fasting have become increasingly popular as a means to lose weight. The fat loss magic coming from keto and fasting happens because your body will start to use primarily fat for energy instead of carbs. When fat is burned at a high enough rate, the body will start to produce ketones, putting you in the state of ketosis. Ketones have been linked in countless studies to having a plethora of health benefits. Some people do ketogenic diets and fast without the intention of losing weight simply because they feel more alert, focused, have more energy, or want to cure some health problem they’ve been dealing with.

In this video, we’ll give you everything you need to know about getting into deep ketosis quickly. We’ll start off by breaking down how ketones are actually produced in the body, and then discuss several ways you can stimulate the breakdown of fat, and how to start converting that fat into ketones. At the end, we’ll give you the ultimate protocol guaranteed to get you into deep ketosis.
