What is ketosis and how does it work?

Ketosis occurs when your body burns fat for energy. In normal circumstances, your body uses glucose (blood sugar) as its primary energy source.

A majority of your glucose intake comes from carbohydrates (carbs) such as starches and sugars. The carbs are broken down into glucose by your body, which is then used as fuel. The rest is stored in your liver and released as needed.

Low carbohydrate intake depletes these glucose stores. Fat is burned instead of carbs when your body does not have enough carbohydrates to burn for energy. Components called ketone bodies are produced as your body breaks down fat. Ketones, or ketones bodies, are your body’s primary source of energy.

Ketones are created by your body using fat stored in your body or fat in your diet (nutritional ketosis). It is the liver that produces the majority of ketones in your body. Conversely, as your glucose level declines, so does your insulin level. Your liver produces ketones at an accelerated pace to ensure your brain receives enough energy. Thus, your blood contains a high level of ketones during ketosis.

It is critical to keep in mind that ketosis can be beneficial for a number of people. 

What is the duration to get into the ketosis stage?

If you eat less than 50 grams of carbs each day, it will usually take you 2 to 4 days to enter ketosis. However, the time it takes to enter this state varies based on several factors. It may take you a week or longer to get into ketosis. Factors that may influence how long it takes you to achieve this state include your:

  • Age.
  • Carbohydrate, fat and protein intake
  • Physical activity level
  • Metabolism
  • Sleep health
  • Stress level
