How Long Does it Take to Get Into Ketosis?

hi guys dr. Burke here I want to answer
00:03
the question how long does it take to
00:06
get into ketosis that’s fat-burning
00:08
right it’s good question
00:09
a lot of times people expect it you know
00:12
to happen in like 2 minutes it’s not
00:15
going to happen that fast right I want
00:17
you to really understand you’ve been
00:20
living under your whole life okay
00:24
and now we’re going to switch over to a
00:26
completely different fuel source your
00:29
cells have to build new machines for fat

00:35
they have to build new enzymes to break
00:38
down a completely different source of
00:41
fuel that takes some time now if you’re
00:44
really healthy it can happen in maybe a
00:48
week but an average it’s going to be
00:50
about a month to six weeks of completely
00:55
switching up so your body is going to
00:56
change you’re going to feel different
00:58
but the question is how do you know when
01:01
it’s starting to work okay well first of
01:04
all when you are satisfied after you eat
01:06
you can go long periods of time without
01:08
eating and not being hungry you don’t
01:10
have sugar cravings anymore your brain
01:13
is more cognitive if you have more focus
01:15
less you know brain fog it’s basically
01:20
better blood sugars okay you’re
01:22
remembering sharper lets you know
01:26
urinating through the night so those are
01:29
all factors to look for but in the
01:31
process you might you might have any one
01:34
of these symptoms right here and those
01:36
are good things because your body is
01:37
just making the adjustment and you’ve
01:38
got to do it you can’t make the key to
01:41
adaptation like halfway like you can’t
01:46
do like a diet with some sugar every day
01:49
and expect it to adapt you got to bring
01:52
that sugar down to zero yeah to really
01:55
make this work so it’s like
01:58
all-or-nothing because in the presence
01:59
of sugar your body will always burn that
02:01
it will not go after the fat so we’re
02:03
training your body to adapt evaporating
02:06
but once you get there you will never go
02:07
back because you’re going to feel so
02:08
much better and of course you’re going
02:10
to lose a lot of weight but here’s some
02:11
things that you can do fatigue
02:13
if you have fatigue all that means is
02:16
you’re deficient in a certain B vitamin
02:18
b5 pantothenic acid it’s really easy
02:22
just go ahead and start taking some and
02:23
your energy will come up why because b5
02:26
is kind of like a helper for these fat
02:31
burning enzymes to work if you don’t
02:33
have enough b5 because you’re stressed
02:35
well you’re going to get tired so you
02:39
have to feed it what it needs start
02:41
getting cramps in the muscle that means
02:43
you deficient in potassium well if
02:45
you’re following my eating plan you’re
02:47
on about seven to ten cups of vegetable
02:50
per day so you’re not going to have a
02:52
problem with that but you cannot do a
02:55
ketose diet correctly if you’re not
02:58
consuming vegetables it’s not an
03:00
insufficient quantity because potassium
03:04
is needed not just to flesh out all this
03:07
fat from the liver but to help you with
03:10
the nervous system and the muscles
03:12
that’s an electrolyte because with
03:15
ketosis you’re going to dump a lot of
03:17
fluid weight so you need to retain some
03:19
of these electrolytes right and also
03:21
salt is that’s another one if you get
03:23
muscle like weakness you need some salt
03:27
ok bloating bile salts purify bile salts
03:31
that’s my gallbladder formula here’s a
03:34
mistake that people make they start the
03:35
ketosis but they go too heavy on the
03:38
fats too fast and it blows out the
03:40
gallbladder and the cause right shoulder
03:43
pain you just can’t handle the fat so
03:45
you want to start small with the fats
03:47
and gradually increase it so you don’t
03:50
feel too heavy in your digestive system
03:53
sleep issues that’s a calcium magnesium
03:57
issue if you if you’re going through
03:59
this so if you’re not sleeping you’re
04:01
sleeping is worse add some calcium
04:03
magnesium boom you go to sleep
04:06
okay so I just wanted to kind of explain
04:08
that give it some time be patient it’s
04:12
going to work it always does
04:15
but just increase your expectation of
04:18
the time it’s going to take and don’t
04:20
think it’s going to take a day or two
04:21
and then it also doesn’t work so you
04:23
quit all right
