The term fat adaptation refers to how efficient your cells' mitochondria are at utilising ketones for energy rather than glucose. Being "fat-adapted" isn't like an on/off switch, as there are different degrees to how adapted to ketosis you are.... (more)

One of the healthiest fat that you can get is from bones and bone marrow, which may be added while making stews. This also energizes a lot. Other good sources can be salads drizzled with macadamia or homemade or virgin oil.Dipping food... (more)

Do not, I repeat, do not make major changes to your diet without having adequate time for an adjustment period. Keep eating what you have been eating. The enzymes required for some of the adaptations take time to upregulate. I have said before... (more)

Can you define "fat adaptation"? We all burn fat, no matter what our macronutrient intake is, unless we eat every couple hours even when sleeping. Fat is the primary fuel of resting or slow activity. Most people generate ketones at about 50 grams... (more)

2-3 days to get back into keto- and 1-2 weeks to get rid of the extra lbs and water retention. Drink green tea with lemon and ginger for cleansing and digestive properties and get back on that wagon :)
