When you perform physical activities, your body surprises the storage of glycogen. These are filled when they eat carbohydrates broken down into glucose and then converted into glycogen. If the consumption of carbohydrates is minimized, the glycogen reserves remain low. This increases your liver your production of ketones, which are then used as a source of alternative fuel for your muscles instead of carbohydrates. More movement leads to an increase in ketone production in our body very quickly. It takes about four weeks for a body to get used to ketones. And fatty acids as primary fuel sources. Including a lot of healthy fats in the body helps to increase the level of ketones and also stimulates the ketosis process. As we reduce the amount of carbohydrates in our body, we need to increase the intake of healthy fats in our body to around 85-90%. In order for the body to convert fats on a ketogenic diet, it is very important to have a healthy intake of fat. Choose healthy sources of fat from plants and animals. Be careful not to take in excess fat as it does not help in weight loss.
