What is Keto Adaptation?

Woman standing on a scale with a measuring tapeA ketogenic diet is designed to significantly minimize the number of carbohydrates you eat and increase the level of healthy fats. As your carbohydrate levels fall, your body is forced to burn stored fat as fuel instead, which results in weight loss.

Keto-adaptation is the process your body goes through as it changes from using carbs to fat for energy. Though your body is always using a mixture of the two for energy, it tends to reach for glucose, or carbs, first when in a non-keto-adapted state. As your body enters ketosis, it starts to reach for fat instead, causing quicker weight loss than many other diet plans.

Though this short process of entering a keto-adapted state can often be somewhat long and unpleasant, the benefits you experience once the switch has been made are well worth it. At Figure Savers Diet & Weight Loss Center, our Ideal Protein weight loss program helps you achieve this state while still feeling full and energized.
