In the era of instant gratification, many people want to know how does it take to get into ketosis? Well, wonder no longer. We have you covered.
Your body is conditioned to running on sugar so it takes some time to switch to a new fuel source.
For a very healthy person it will only take a week. It is much more likely for it to take 4 to 6 weeks before you start to feel differently.
Many people want to know what kind of benefits you will feel when you get into ketosis? How will you know when keto is working? Well, there are several signs:
- You will be more satisfied after you eat
- Your sugar cravings will go away
- You will be hungry less often
- Focus will be increased with minimal brain fog
- Memory will be sharper
- Urination will happen less overnight
It is important to remember that all of these things happen when you are all the way committed. You cannot do keto halfway.
One way to get into ketosis quicker is by using ketones salts. While this helps you get there quicker, without the commitment from the diet it is useless.
Another way to find out if you are in ketosis is by peeing on a stick. Might sound a little ridiculous but this gives you a good indication that you are in keto. Keto sticks tell you whether or not you are in ketosis. While it is not a sure thing, if you pee on the stick the color the stick turns to is a strong indicator on whether or not you are in ketosis.
Most importantly, stick to the ketogenic diet and you will be in ketosis.
It’s not an overnight success, but once someone gets into ketosis the benefits are unbelievable. Do not let the beginning discourage you. Do not become discouraged when your friend gets into ketosis and loses weight quicker. Everyone’s body is different. Once someone gets to ketosis, it is worth the commitment.
Here is a video from Dr. Eric Berg that expands on how long it takes to get into ketosis.
