We all know that the real benefits of this diet start once you pass that “keto flu” phase.
Honestly, I have been doing keto for a long time. In that long time, I have learned a few things including how to get into ketosis faster and in this post, I am going to share that secret with you.
What is Ketosis?
Ketosis is a metabolic state in which your body turns from glucose to fat as a fuel source.
Once you remove carbs from your diet, your body goes into starvation mode and starts using fat as a primary source of energy.
How can you get into ketosis?
Getting into ketosis is a process that starts the moment you reduce your carb intake. The lower your carb intake is, the faster you will reach ketosis.
What can you do to get into ketosis faster?
Eat more fat
One of the reasons why people doesn’t go into ketosis faster is that they are still afraid to eat fat. Fat isn’t your enemy on keto. In fact, fat isn’t your enemy on any diet as far as it comes from a natural source.
Type of Fats you should eat
- Coconut Oil– A natural cold-pressed coconut oil has 55% of MCT. It has the highest quantity of MCT compared to other natural fat sources out there.
- Palm Kernel Oil– With around 54% of MCT content, Palm Kernel oil is almost as beneficial as coconut oil.
- Ghee (Clarified Butter)- Fat from milk is one of the best fat out there. Ghee, which is one of the best saturated fat has 25% of MCT content.
- MCT oil– With 100% MCT content, MCT oil has the quality of converting into ketones the fastest way. Think it like a supplement for Keto and it is the only supplement you should consume when it comes to Keto.
