10 Tips to Optimize Ketosis #1

Getting your body into the state of ketosis and maintaining it can be a struggle for a lot of folks. The truth is, we all trip up from time-to-time, and there’s not one of us who doesn’t need a little help or a reminder every now and again.
 
My goal in this series of tips is to identify many of the roadblocks on the path to nutritional ketosis in an effort to help you improve your ability to maintain and maximize the level of ketosis necessary for you to accomplish your goals and to see the weight loss that you desire. Many of you tend to be too hard on yourselves and are quick to assume, "Keto just doesn’t work for me, I’m different." If that’s you, listen up! You just might find the answer to your problem in the information below.
 
Tip 1: Stop Fearing Fat
 
A big problem that we routinely see is that people simply do not eat enough fat. Not eating enough fat will set you up for failure, or at the very least, HUNGER. The...

10 Tips to Optimize Ketosis #2

My second tip for getting into and maintaining ketosis is simple:
 
DON’T CONSISTENTLY EAT LOW CALORIE.
 
Being consistent on a ketogenic diet is extremely important, but consistently eating low calorie is not a good idea. Old diet mentalities, like that of cutting calories, try to creep in from time-to-time and then, suddenly, you find that your fat loss has plateaued. Restricting calories may work temporarily, but after a few weeks you tend to find your weight stabilizing, and despite eating at a calorie deficit, you simply cannot shed excess body fat.
 
Why?
 
Consistently eating at a large deficit slows the metabolism. Your body is designed to keep you alive. If you're consistently taking in a lot less energy than you're expending, the body is going to slow down the energy going out so that it has enough fuel to keep your heart and organs running, but maybe not much else.
 
Also remember weight loss on keto is not linear. Many...

10 Tips to Optimize Ketosis #3

My third tip for getting into and maintaining ketosis is easy:
 
EAT HIGH QUALITY FATS.
 
Although it’s the lowered level of carbohydrate that actually gets you into ketosis, it’s the fat that sustains you enough to keep you there. So, it bears mentioning that eating a very low-carb diet does not mean that you should skimp on the quantity and quality of the fats that you are eating. You do yourself a terrible disservice if you are keeping good fats low. High quality fats are the backbone for making new cells and brain tissue, establishing neurotransmitters, balancing hormones and aiding most bodily functions.
 
Focus on getting as high of quality fats as possible. Think whole, non-processed food choices with lots of omega-3, like grass-fed meats and their drippings, wild fish, cold-pressed olive oil, grass-fed butter, avocado and its oil, etc. Consuming low quality things like most vegetable and seed oils, processed "cheese" (like those little...
