Getting your body in the state of ketosis and maintaining this state can be a struggle for people. My goal in this article is to give you some of the best ways to get into ketosis and maintain it. These ketogenic diet tips that I am about to share are (in most cases) topics that I have written in depth about, but you probably didn’t know that these same topics can skyrocket your ability to maintain a state of ketosis.
If you haven’t read my article on the Ketogenic Diet, go back and read it. I outline what the ketogenic diet is, and then I list all the foods that you can and cannot eat while on the ketogenic diet. Now let’s dive into the 5 ketogenic diet master tips to help you find success with the diet.
1) Use Intermittent Fasting
Intermittent fasting is a very powerful tool to push your body into a fat burning mode. When I coach people, I will typically have the individual fast for a period of 16 hours and eat all their meals within an 8 hour time frame. The reason intermittent fasting works so well to help you get into and maintain ketosis is because during the fasting interval, your body turns to fat for its energy source. Though it takes your body a few days to want to maintain that fat burning status on a consistent basis, intermittent fasting will consistently push your body in the right direction, that being the ketosis state.
