When looking to activate ketone production, each individual has their own limit of carbs to consider. That can also change for each person from day to day. There are many factors involved. Most people can get to the desired state if they restrict their carbohydrate number to less than twenty grams. Staying at this mark is often enough to ensure ketosis occurs reliably. Avoiding grains and sugars, including fruits, in favor of meats and green vegetables, and some nuts and fats, is also recommended.
- Limiting one’s carbs to -35 grams a day helps one take advantage of ketosis, ketones, and keto adaptation.
- Certain exercises done at the right time will bolster one’s ketosis
- Avoid stress and conditions related to stress to maintain one’s ketosis.
“If net carbs are further limited to less than 20 grams, then most people will get into ketosis even more quickly. Keeping one’s carb consumption at this level and rarely going above it is a reliable way to stay in ketosis (as long as one eats the right amount of protein — more on that later).”
