If you have finally acknowledged the benefits of Ketogenic diet and gung-ho to start the diet, you must be wondering what is the fastest way to get your body into ketosis. Since, Ketosis resembles the body’s starvation survival mechanism, many people ask if fasting to get into ketosis really work?

For those who don’t know, Ketosis is a natural process in which the body starts burning fat for energy instead of the usual source carbohydrates, thus allowing faster fat burn and quicker weight loss.

If you are desperate to get onto ketosis, for whatever reason, the answer for you is extremely simple. Go on a complete 3-day fast!

Yes, if you fast completely i.e., absolutely zero food over the next 3 days, your body will go on survival mode and automatically trigger ketosis. However, we wouldn’t recommend it as it is not healthy and you may develop some health concern in the process.

Your motive is to reach this concentration of Ketone in the body:

However, we recommend a rather gradual, more effective, and healthier way to get into Ketosis. Try our 3-day program to get into Ketosis for free.

Although complete fasting might give you the desired result, it might lead to more complications. Thus, it is better that you stick to intermittent fasting instead.

Begin with a 16 hour fast by skipping all meals from the night of Day 0 till 4 PM on Day 1. This will allow your to burn the existing carbs in the body and prepare your body for ketosis.

You should continue intermittent over the next few days as well. But, you can reduce the hours of fasting. For instance, you may choose to skip any 1 meal within the day.


Additionally, during your intermittent fasts you may include exogenous products into your diet to quicken the process.

Though we usually recommend our clients to use natural methods only, many people have spoken highly of exogenous products that drastically increase blood ketone levels within a short period of time. Products such as the ones offered by Perfect Keto and Keto Os are good examples.
