how to get your body into ketosis

Answered on August 19, 2014

i have been told that reducing carbohydrate intake at all levels will get my body to ketosis. does this mean i have to remove vegetables from my diet as well? i am trying to increase my dietary fat intake so that it will take up more of my caloric ratios instead of protein because i have relied on protein a little too much. i want to get into ketosis because my belly has gradually gotten bigger after switching to crossfit. i used to run and eat paleo and that did wonders for me. i went from 155-128 running. i decided to switch to crossfit and now am around 140 and have significantly more belly fat and it looks very bad in the mirror. any help?

Yep. Also muscle meats are a particular set of amino acids. Gelatinous meats and organ meats are important to balance those out, perhaps enabling your body to use more of the protein you are taking in rather than converting it to glucose.

In order to get into high ketosis, you need to restrict both carbs and protein. Start with 0.8 g protein per kg lean bodyweight per day. For you that's about 40 g which is the amount in a can of tuna or half a pound of raw beef. Sugary or starchy vegetables will keep your ketosis close to zero. You may find that you can remain at your desired level of ketosis while eating a moderate amount of green leafy (non-starchy, non-sugary) vegetables. Or you may find that you can't. You'll have to try. Be aware that it can take several weeks for the level of ketosis to adjust to a changed diet

Most people advocating ketosis have significantly more belly fat than you do.

Also, If you eat too much protein, your body will convert the excess into glucose using gluconeogenesis.

I started by firstly stopping all FRUCTOSE (sugar - the sweet stuff). It is my belief that anything you trying w.r.t. your health, could fail in the presence of sugar. I do this for a week. (See "Sugar the bitter truth")

Then in 24 hours I gradually stop carbs. In fact, I eat a cross over meal (only once) that is high in carbs and fats. Then that is the last time I eat carbs.

After that I eat vegetables (no sauces) and chicken.

Now where I live, I am lucky that there is a meat section that sells meat scraps :)

There I buy it because it has a lot of fat, and I want more fat than meat.

Within 3 more days (10 in all) I am in ketosis. PS: I also supplement.

I am in ketosis, day 15. I limited my carbs to 20. I used a keto calculator to give me the fat protein ratio to stick with found here. http://keto-calculator.ankerl.com Then I use a mobile application called, myfitnesspal, to keep track of my carb/fat/protein intake... When I first started,it took me about 3 days to get into. No problem sticking to the diet, no hunger or cravings for me.. but I was already adapted to a paleo lifestyle. I did have a low carb flu for about four days. But than felt wonderful! It was almost unbelievable how well I felt. Still do! Good luck with your journey!

Basic answer would be: USE THE SEARCH FUNCTION ON THE TOP RIGHT. Simple answer below...

Start with eating less than 50g day NET CARBS...this is total carbs MINUS fiber (so veggies still count but many have a lot of fiber so you can eat more).

Protein should be between .6g-1g per lb of LEAN BODY MASS.

You might hit a low carb flu after a few days, can last about a week. Your pee will smell funny and your mouth will taste kinda gross. Takes ~2 weeks for your body to truly be efficient at using fat for fuel.
