How to get your body into ketosis faster?
Now that you've decided on trying the keto diet, how do you get your body into ketosis as quickly as possible?
Try Intermittent Fasting
Fasting encourages our body to burn through glycogen stores faster. Ketosis only takes place when glycogen stores have been depleted. The most popular fasting duration is 16 hours.
Minimise Carb Consumption
Cut out carbs as much as possible. Aim for below 50grams. Green leafy vegetables are recommended to hit fibre and vitamin requirements. Be sure to watch out for sneaky hidden carbs in sauces.
Increase healthy fat intake
Consume around 75% of your calories from healthy fats. The rest should be derived mostly from protein.
Consume coconut oil or MCT oil
Coconut oil is high in medium-chain triglycerides (MCT), which increases ketone production in our bodies. Ketones allow the body to produce energy from good fats rather than from sugar and carbohydrates. For an even more effective result, consume pure MCT oil.

Increase physical activity
Ketosis takes place when there is an absence of glycogen. Engaging in exercise helps burn through glycogen stores faster.
