Before we dive in and talk about how you can get into ketosis fast, let’s first take a minute to explain what ketosis is.
The keto diet isn’t some magic fad diet that doesn’t work.
It is actually backed by science.
Ketosis is a natural state that occurs anytime your body doesn’t have enough carbs to use a fuel.
When this happens it forces your body to look for a different source of energy.
Whether you are following the keto diet or not, all of us have been in the state of ketosis at some point in our lives.
It can happen when you miss a meal or when you workout to the point of exhaustion.
But for those following the keto diet, getting into ketosis isn’t always as easy as missing a meal.
It takes a little more strategy than that.
Let’s start by talking about the foods you should avoid as they will hinder your ability to go into ketosis.
Avoid all grains, whole meal included (rye, wheat, oats, barley, corn, millet, rice sorghum and buckwheat). Also, avoid all products made from grains; these include foods such as crackers, pasta, pizza, and cookies.
Avoid refined fats and oils like sunflower, canola, grape seed, corn oil, soybean, and Trans-fats such as margarine.
Avoid milk (only full-fat raw milk is acceptable). For coffee, replace milk with reasonable amounts of cream.
Avoid tropical fruits such as bananas, pineapples, mango, papaya, etc., and some high carb fruit.
Avoid fruit juice.
Avoid factory-farmed pork and fish.
Avoid all artificial sweeteners containing Aspartame, Sucralose, Saccharine, etc.
Avoid alcoholic sweet drinks such as beer, and sweet wine
Avoid Soy products
