Did you just take a cheat day? Don’t feel guilty! Instead of feeling bad, why don’t you just focus on getting back on track instead?
In my latest video, I’ve talked about how long it will get you back into ketosis after a cheat day.
And the answer is: it highly depends!
There are many deciding factors that affect how fast one can get his or her body back into a state of ketosis.
Some of the factors may include your gender, age, your physical activities, how long you’ve been into ketosis before, and how much you cheated.
Are you a lean, young man? Or a woman over 60? Our bodies have different ways of coping based on these factors.
No matter how long it takes, your body can always go back into a state of ketosis if you stick faithfully to the diet.
When you feel like caving into your cravings, remember your WHY. Why you started keto and the health and fitness goals you’ve wanted to achieve.
First things first, in the Keto Diet, your hair should likely grow and look well. Your nails and skin included. So if that's not the case, and you're losing hair, then there's something wrong.
But before you get so worried about it, know that this could only mean you're lacking or doing something inappropriate in your diet.
So, what are the causes and solutions of hair loss on the Keto Diet?
Cause #1: Hormones shift or imbalance.
A change of diet such as going completely low carb can cause a hormone imbalance that leads to hair loss.
Solution: Try doing carb ups every seven days.
You may frequently add one carb ups to your routine such as half sweet potato. The best time to do carb ups is at night.
As for switching back to Ketosis, it's best to shift back to it on the next day. This way, it will be easier for you to become fat-adapted and get back to the Keto Diet in no time. If you want to know the signs that you're...
4 Signs That You're Fat-Adapted
The first thing you need to know is that even when you're already in the Keto diet, that doesn't mean that you are now Fat-adapted.
What is Fat-Adapted?
When you start into the Keto Diet, you'll go through this transition phase, wherein you change from being a sugar burner to fat burner. Once your body has fully transitioned from burning sugar to burning fat, then you can tell that you are already Fat-Adapted.
How long does it take before you become Fat-Adapted?
The transition phase depends on each person's body. For some, it can be quite fast, while for others, it can take much longer.
Usually, it takes about 6 to 12 weeks of regularly sticking in the Keto Diet.
What are the signs that you're Fat-Adapted?

The Ketogenic diet has been around for over a hundred years but has only been getting the media attention it deserves just recently. Keto has been used in medicine to control brain disorders such as Alzheimer's, dementia, attention deficit disorder, and drug-resistant epilepsy, especially in children.
Contrary to the popular general recommendation of dietary fat restriction, more and more health professionals are now seeing low-carb, high-fat diet or ketogenic as a much better option to treat obesity and other diseases.
To put it simply, Ketogenic or keto is a type of diet that is low in carbohydrates, moderate in protein and is high in fat. But why avoid carbs? When we eat food that is high in carbs, our body produces insulin and glucose.
Glucose is the easiest molecule to convert into energy which makes it our body’s primary source of energy. Insulin, on the other hand, is produced to process the glucose in our body by diffusing it all over.

You know that feeling, right? That feeling after you ate pizza or pasta for lunch and you feel so damn tired that you could go straight to bed. Lunchtime and you just want to sleep, but you still need to work. Isn’t that terrible? Why is it that way? You could think: Perhaps it’s me and I am just a person with no energy who is always tired, etc… But you are not! It’s the food you ate which makes you feel so tired and drained.
After you ate the pizza or pasta your blood sugar sky rockets- Why? Because they are shock full of carbs which are turned into sugar in your body.
Yeah, and what’s the problem with that? Well if your blood sugar skyrockets it will crash down soon, which will leave you tried as hell and exhausted. Your body starts craving lot's of sugar very soon to get energized again. So… you walk to that donut stand in front of your office and get 1 or 2 donuts and a coffee with sugar to get awake again and because this...

Yes, really! That’s why we are here now with my video on the healthy keto diet. Relax, grab a cup of coffee or tea without sugar and watch the video.

Because 80% of your immune system are in your gut. If you want to get fit, healthy and a skin to die for you better take good care of it! If you are eating...
