The post was how to induce ketosis, not does your liver produce ketones. The question is related to slipping into a ketogenic state. Technically you could deplete glycogen in one workout, ever see a runner bonk?? But I shouldn't have said "all the" in regards to glycogen, just that its helping deplete. Being in ketosis you run a higher (than normal, due to water being effectively stored with carbs) of dehydration. As far as eating after an hour, I just find this better from personal experience. If there is a better way to induce ketosis I would say you should post your own thoughts.

hang on, your liver produces ketones every day. you also will not be able to deplete all hepatic and muscle glycogen in one workout. and what's with only consuming protein after that workout, but waiting 60 minutes? and why would water have anything to do with this?

Stop eating at 8 pm. In the morning, have a cup of coffee blended with 3 TBSP of butter and 2 TBSP of MCT oil. Don't eat until 2 pm. For the rest of the day, keep carbs below 20 g. Do this every day and you'll go into ketosis very quickly.

36 hour fast while maintaining your activity level. Not a recommendation, just the fastest way to get there.

Your body has to be depleted of accessible glucose (stored in muscles and liver) for you to start producing ketones.

My 2 cents to rush ketosis.

sleep wake up and fast until you workout (5pm ish) workout really hard with exaggerated effort (HIIT and/or resistance training at slow cadence till point of failure) so that your muscles are forced to use all the stored glycogen after workout consume nothing for 60 minutes then consume only protien (beef jerky, can of tuna, etc) finish out the day with zero carb (minus veggies) meals of meat, veggies and fat. make sure you drink a ton of water throughout the day and if you can stand it black coffee or caffeinated tea

go to sleep and wake up in ketosis the next day. It normally take about 2-3 days for the body to naturally reach ketosis so this doesn't cut that much time off the clock but should kickstart ketosis faster than just waiting around.

what's the point here?

okay, with that aside... you produce ketones every day. eat more coconut oil, you'll produce even more. if you want to start making them a major fuel source that your body processes efficiently as an alternative to glucose (again, why?) there's no quick answer, because it differs for everyone. you can drain your glycogen stores in a matter of days though.

Drink pure fat as your only calorie source.

I don't recommend that though..
