For those that have tried to fast for a few days or starting on the keto diet will recall how physically challenging it feels when leaving a carb- and glucose-rich diet.
So here is a little hack, dear friends, on what you can do:
First off - why should you do this?
Getting into ketosis as quickly as possible helps to skip muscle wasting.
And on top of that, the more often you enter ketosis, the faster the transition, so its worth practicing this regularly.
By getting into ketosis quickly, it also maximizes your time in ketosis to get the weight loss and other health benefits faster.
So how, you ask, can this be done?
Here is one great protocol recommended by best-selling author and human guinea pig Tim Ferriss:
How Deep in Ketosis am I?
Knowing how deep you are in ketosis can help you reach the feeling of mental clarity as well as reap the health and longevity benefits. A generally accepted “threshold” for ketosis is a blood level of beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) above 0.5 millimolar (mmol). The most reliable way to measure this is using the Precision Xtra by Abbott (INSERT AMAZON LINK) as it can measure both glucose and blood levels of beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB). A less expensive alternative are Ketone Urine Test Strips (INSERT AMAZON LINK). From 0.5 mmol you are lightly in ketosis, with most people feeling increased mental clarity at 1mmol or above. Dr Dominic “Dom” D’Agostino, PhD, a known Keto Expert and Scientist, likes to be in mild to moderate ketosis for health and longevity at 1 to 3 mmol (levels which help protect DNA from damage as well as other benefits).
