What Is Ketosis?
By consuming up to 800 calories a day your body enters a natural metabolic state called ketosis. Once your body uses up its energy reserves of glycogen it starts to burn fats. When fat is burned rapidly the body produces a by-product called ketones and the person is said to be in ketosis.
If you decide to follow one of Exante’s low calorie diet plans you'll consume fewer calories than your body requires on a daily basis, creating a calorie deficit. After 2-4 days your body will enter ketosis, causing your body to use its fat stores to produce energy.
You still need carbohydrates as part of a healthy daily diet, which is why our meal replacements contain a controlled amount. You should be able to stay in ketosis by having 20-50g of carbs each day, but it’s possible to be in a mild state of ketosis if consuming more than this.
A ketogenic diet is an effective way to control your blood sugar as you may experience less hunger cravings and feel more satisfied after each meal. Even if you don't follow a recommended diet plan, most people tend to enter a state of ketosis at some point in a 24-hour cycle, usually when you're asleep.
How Long Should I Diet?
The duration of your low calorie diet is entirely dependent on your weight loss goals, although we'd recommend taking a short break every so often to balance out more healthy homemade foods into your diet.
If you’re following one of Exante’s low calorie diets it's advisable to factor in some home-cooked recipes after 28 days of using meal replacements for one week before returning to your diet plan, increasing your calorie intake.
