How To Get Into Ketosis: Tips To Burn Fat

Published October 03, 2018 (Revised: August 13, 2019)
<article> <section> <p>Everyone sticking to the ketogenic diet has one goal in mind: stay in “ketosis.” But what does that mean, and why do they want to do that? It sounds like a science experiment in your body, right? It does involve science, but only in the best way: being in ketosis means your cells are only burning fat as energy. No carbs, no sugar — just fat!</p> <p>It’s not about counting calories, but about eating the right foods as your source of fuel. This is why the keto diet is ditching all traditional advice and changing the lives of millions of people around the world right now. It’s helping change what people think life and health “should” be.</p> <p><b>But, one of the most common problems people have with eating keto is knowing how to stay in ketosis—and more specifically, knowing what they can and cannot intake in order to stay in ketosis.</b></p> <p>So to help you learn, I want to give you both some general rules-of-thumb and an extensive list of foods to stay away from. This way, you’ll be confident you’re always breaking down and melting fat, 24 hours a day.</p> </section> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium mx-auto"> <section> <header>What Foods Do I Stay Away From?</header> <p>Tip: knowing what groups of foods to stay away from can help you just as much as memorizing every single food that’ll knock you out of ketosis—and it will probably be easier too!</p> </section> <section> <header>Here are the types of foods to steer clear of:</header> <div class="sub-head">Carb-Heavy Foods</div> <ul> <li>Breads… </li> <li>Starchy vegetables </li> <li>Chips…</li> <li>Beans…</li> <li>Traditional pasta (<a target="_blank" href="" rel="noreferrer" title="Keto-Friendly Pasta">Here’s Some Delicious Keto-Friendly Pasta</a>)...</li> <li>Beers…</li> </ul> <div class="sub-head">Sugar-Filled Foods</div> <ul> <li>Desserts (<a target="_blank" href="" rel="noreferrer" title="Keto-Friendly Treats">Here’s A Cookbook Full Of 77 Keto-Friendly Treats</a>)…</li> <li>Candy…</li> <li>Most fruits have too much sugar (But there’s a couple that still work)…</li> </ul> <div class="sub-head">Dairy (Not all of it, though)</div> <ul> <li>Coffee creamers...</li> <li>Milk (even most almond and soy milks!)… </li> <li>Even fat-free butter substitutes!</li> </ul> <picture class="lazy-load"> <source data-srcset="" type="image/webp"> <source data-srcset="" type="image/jpf"> <source data-srcset=""> <img src="" class="img-fluid" alt="donut-pink"> </picture> <p>These are some very general rules for staying safe on the ketogenic diet. What you need is to seek out high protein, high fat foods (there’s a list of foods to eat at the bottom of this page) and you’ll be good to go. Now, like I promised, here’s an extensive (directly from our Head Chef at Warrior Made) list of foods to stay away from until your “cheat day.”</p> <p><i>Not sure how a “cheat day” works?

The only downside? Sugar is not an option. This cuts out just about every dessert, which is completely unsustainable! Imagine never eating a piece of cake again! Or a ooey-gooey brownie?
