In this video, we’re going to talk about how to really become fat-adapted.

It’s good to have the right expectations about how you’re going to achieve your health and weight loss goals on keto. It can take time to become fully fat-adapted and begin to lose weight.

Before you give up and quit keto, check out these points, so you know what to expect.

If you aren’t familiar with keto already, the goal is to go from burning sugar (glucose) for fuel to burning fat (ketones) for fuel.

When you first start keto, here’s what to expect:
• Around 3 days in, you begin burning ketones (instead of glucose)
• Around 1-2 weeks, you lose a lot of water weight
• Around 3 weeks, weight loss may slow down temporarily
• Around 4-12 weeks, most people become fully fat-adapted (weight loss increases)
• Around 12 months, athletes become fully fat-adapted

How do you know if you’re fat-adapted on keto? Here are the signs:
• You can exercise without a dip in energy
• You can go a long time without feeling hungry
• You don’t feel tired after meals
• You can hold your bladder through the night

To speed up the keto fat-adaptation timeline, get your carbs as low as you possibly can and increase your fat consumption.
