If you are interested in trying a keto diet, there are a few things you'll need to grasp before you get started. In order to utilize fat for energy (ketosis), you will need to restrict carb intake and keep it low for the duration of the diet. Getting to know your keto macros and keeping track of your daily intake is key. The amount of time it takes and the number of carbs you need to switch your source of fuel to fat can differ from one person to the next. The only way to know for sure if your body is going into ketosis is to test your ketone levels regularly using keto test strips. And you will need to be extremely strict with your diet, as any "cheats" or fluctuations will pull you out of ketosis. Luckily ketosis isn't required for you to lose weight, simply cutting your calories is enough! So you should also track your calorie intake if you are looking to lose weight on a keto diet.
