Keto Guide – What is Ketosis?

Keto Guide – What is Ketosis?

Hello my fat adapted family! Here’s MY guide to ketosis.

Today’s topic is ketosis.

I just want to clarify that these are MY opinions (and my research) as someone who has been in ketosis for quite a few years now. You may not agree with my guides and that’s okay. This may not be the guide for you. At the end of the day, it’s your keto journey/diet/lifestyle, I’m just putting my 2 cents in here to try and help some people with the information I promote.


– Your body can only run off of either ketones or glucose.

– Carbs are little chains of sugar. Carbs and protein are both converted
into the energy source glucose.

– The liver and insulin are in charge out sorting out what we eat. The liver will store or release glucose, insulin will tell the liver when to do so.
The liver converts extra glucose into bundles called glycogen to store until needed by the body for energy.
When the liver doesn’t have anymore space for glycogen, it will change them into fatty acids and send these acids out to our fat tissues for “long term” storage. This fatty acid process is much like a bear about to hibernate.

– When heavily overworked due to constant eating of glucose and little to no exercise, the liver will panic and throw fatty acids on itself. Causing a fatty liver. A fatty liver is not a healthy liver.

– Fat has such little glucose, that it turns straight into fatty acids. HOWEVER, if you do not feed your body a lot of glucose (lots of carbs and high protein) your body will rely on these fatty acids to give your body energy.
This is known as being in ketosis. Your body will use these fat tissues full of “long term” storage as your main energy source when you’re not eating.

– Ketones are ONLY produced if you eat low carbs and low to moderate level of protein.

That’s pretty much it!
