5. Try Fasting To Get Into Nutritional Ketosis Faster
Perhaps the best way to turn on your bodies fat burning process, is to fast. It couldn’t be any easier. Just don’t eat, and make sure you drink lots of water. You can take MCTs with grass-fed butter, but otherwise don’t eat for a set period of time.
After about 8 hours, your body begins to enter ketosis. The longer you go between meals, the quicker you become ketogenic.
Don’t worry, you won’t starve to death or lose every pound of muscle you’ve worked to gain. You won’t feel weak or tired either.
Sure, there will be a few uncomfortable moments, but after approximately 12-16 hours or so, you begin to get that second wind of energy. Welcome to the world of being in nutritional ketosis and your body using fat for fuel.
Intermittent Faster To Get Into Ketosis Faster
My wife and I use ‘Intermittent fasting’, the official name of this method, to get into and stay in nutritional ketosis. It took some time to adapt to, but we now only eat one meal every day. Consequentially, we fast for about 20 hours between meals. A few times a week we’ll skip our dinner and go 36-40 hours before eating again. It’s like your body getting a reboot … and it feels great!
