Speed Keto is a way to speed up the ketosis and (re)enter the keto diet sometimes within 24 hours. Here are four ways to speed up the process.
Fasting and resistance training can speed keto
Fasting is the best way to put you in a state of ketosis and speed up the fat-burning process. Working out in a fasted state, especially resistance training, empties the glycogen stores in your muscles. If you weren’t in ketosis before you started, you almost certainly will be when you are done.
Medium-chain triglycerides (MCT) oil, carnitine, and black coffee:
Black coffee stimulates the release of fatty acids, and MCT oil is converted to ketones by the liver.
Carnitine is an amino acid that helps shuttle fat into the mitochondria to be used as energy. Ingested together, they can give you quick energy and a sustained energy boost, while not causing any glucose or insulin increase.
Macadamia nuts and apple cider vinegar before and after a fast
Macadamia nuts are a great keto-friendly nut to eat as the last meal right before you start a fast, and a perfect choice as the food to eat to end your fast. Macadamia nuts have more Palmitoleic acid than any other food. They have also been shown to improve insulin sensitivity. Additionally, macadamia nuts are the highest in fat, and the extra fat can help you achieve the state of ketosis.
The apple cider vinegar is also beneficial because it can help stimulate bile acid release, which helps digest fat. Additionally, apple cider vinegar has been shown to help improve insulin sensitivity.
