Ketosis

Ketosis is a natural metabolic state where the body burns fat for fuel. When the body does not have enough glucose (sugar) for energy, it turns to stored fat for help.

This process is called ketosis. Burning fat for energy produces ketones in the blood and urine.

There are several ways to achieve ketosis, including:

  • Eating a ketogenic diet: This is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that forces the body into ketosis.
  • Fasting: Fasting for short periods of time (such as 16 hours) can also induce ketosis.
  • Exercise: Exercise is a great way to boost metabolism and promote ketosis.

Ketosis is a powerful metabolic state that can help you lose weight, increase energy levels, and improve your overall health. Speak with your healthcare provider before trying any type of weight loss or diet plan.
