How Long Does It Take For Ketosis To Kick In ?


How Long Does It Take For Ketosis To Kick In ?


Most people transition into ketosis within one to three days. It can take some people a full week, as all bodies are different. Factors that affect how quickly you enter ketosis include your current body weight, diet, and activity level.


In order to enter ketosis, your body needs to first burn through its glycogen (glucose) supply. Once the glycogens are depleted, your body signals it’s time to start breaking down those fatty acids. 


During the next few days, the liver gets the message to begin excreting ketones. This last part of the process signals that you’re in ketosis. The early stage is a mild ketosis, as ketone levels will be relatively low until you maintain ketosis for a steady period of time. You can measure ketone levels formally (see here).


but you might start to notice some physiological changes that show you’re in ketosis, such as keto flu or keto breath. They are not as severe or dramatic as they sound, and the benefits of ketosis might outweigh the downside in this phase-in period toward your defined goals, but it’s good to familiarize yourself with the symptoms nonetheless (see here and here).
