There are many different ways to get
into ketosis and to go Keto. Probably the the most convenient one is to adjust
your macronutrient levels to where you’re consuming 70 percent of your
calories in the form of healthy fats; five to ten percent, depending on your
daily caloric needs, in the form of carbohydrate and getting adequate
amounts of protein. Carbohydrate restriction for most people, that’s 50 grams of carbs or less will pretty much guarantee that your body will start to
make these adjustments. When you get above 50 grams then the body really
doesn’t get the message that we’re gonna be restricting carbs for a long period
of time. One of the things I noticed about people in the space was that they might be getting great results but there were reports of sort of extreme efforts
to get there. Suffering through the keto flu, not feeling that great for long
periods of time, and for a lot of people it’s real. The brain is sort of used to
getting a regular supply of glucose every few hours, day in and day out, and
if you don’t get that regular supply you get hangry, or you get moody, or get
depressed. That’s a brain that has become used to regular supply of glucose and hasn’t built the metabolic machinery yet to burn ketones. When you start going into
ketosis and you restrict glucose, the brain is going “Oh where’s my glucose,” and this is a transition period for a lot of people of a couple of days, and as the
liver starts pumping out these ketones you get past that hazy foggy brain fog
hangry couple of days, but it’s you know it’s not pleasant for a lot of people.
One of the ways to circumvent this keto flu is we spent three weeks just getting
rid of the crap extra sugars, breads, pastas, cereal, the industrial seed oils;
but you’re not restricting calories so you’re not you know you’re not allowing
yourself to go hungry ever. That’s one of the secrets, is just don’t let yourself
get hungry and then after three weeks – the brain and the body have already
started to get used to the fact that there’s not gonna be 300-400 grams of
carbs every day. At most there’s gonna be 120-150. At the end of three weeks then
we say okay, now if you can wake up in the morning and you have
enough energy to go a couple of hours without eating breakfast, that’s a sign
that you’re burning fat. If you have enough energy to go do a workout and not have a pre-workout meal, or a post-workout meal 20 minutes afterwards, that’s a sign you’re getting better at burning fat, and so now when you go keto
all you’re doing is finding another 60 or 70 grams of carbs that you were
eating in previous three weeks that now you’re gonna choose not to eat. And for a
lot of people that means maybe just not eating a meal. I discovered that I can get up in the morning, and I don’t need to eat for a
couple of hours, so I’ll go until 11:00-11:30 – 12 o’clock and then I have my
first meal, and then I’ll have my second meal at 7:00, and that’s kind of a normal
genesis of people being able to conveniently and comfortably enter into
ketosis you know with ease and grace
