How to get faster into ketosis. 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.
Hey, it’s me again 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 article, 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 ketotic 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 that ketotic state faster.
Step #1: Eat relatively low-carb
The first step in getting into ketosis faster is to get into is slower. I know that sounds counterintuitive, but what I mean is that you want to gradually transition your diet from what it is know 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 #2: 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 (aka 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 #3: 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!
