Complete Ketosis Food List

index1xx

Do you know what ketosis is? Ketosis is a metabolic state in which some of the body’s energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood. When you restrict carbs in your diet, your body relies on fat for energy. Ketosis usually occurs when your carb levels fall to 20-50 carbs or less in a day.

Limiting the carbs in your diet is the fastest and safest way of reaching ketosis. To do this, you need to put yourself on a ketogenic diet, which is a high-fat, adequate-protein and low-carbohydrate diet. Other diets and exercise techniques such as HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training), can also help you achieve a state of ketosis.
