5 Biggest KETO Tips For Faster Weight Loss
These are the 5 biggest keto tips for faster weight loss. You’ll learn how to start a ketogenic diet and how to change your meal plan to enter ketosis faster. If you’re a beginner looking to lose weight or for fat loss then you can learn a lot from this video as well.
Let’s move on to my third tip for speeding up weight loss with keto and that’s through intense exercise or prolonged exercise. Now prolonged exercise where you train for a couple hours can wind up doing more harm than good so instead, I’d like to focus on intense exercise which can provide all the benefits without the drawbacks. Once again you’re going get to ketosis and begin producing ketones essentially burning fat as your primary source of fuel only after you’ve already depleted your glycogen stores. One of the best ways by far to deplete your glycogen stores with your workout is by lifting heavier weights and in general, increasing the intensity of your workouts. As opposed to aerobic workouts like jogging anaerobic workouts will preferentially use glycogen for fuel. Not only will focusing on anaerobic training help you burn through your glycogen stores but it’ll also prevent muscle loss while you burn fat.
So this is once again a win-win situation because muscle loss is a very common threat to anyone that’s trying to cut. While you’re cutting regardless of whether you’re doing the ketogenic diet or some other diet plan, it’s going to feel very difficult to match the same weight load that you were using for your exercises before you were trying to lose weight or burn fat. And over a long cut, you’re inevitably going to be sure to drop the amount of weight that you use for at least a couple of your exercises. But I need you to do everything you can to fight for every last inch before decreasing the weight that you’re using. What I mean is push yourself to maintain the same weight as long as you can. an example of this would be if you normally bench press 225 pounds for 8 reps when you start cutting 225 pounds may feel significantly heavier then before you started. But instead of giving in to the urge of immediately dropping the weight you want to fight for every last pound. Meaning you might only be able to do 7 reps the first week and then the following week only 6 and then two weeks later you might only be able to do 5 but push yourself to stick to the same weight until your rep range gets really low.
Then you can drop down in weight. Again the reason for this is because as a natural your muscle strength is directly tied to how much muscle you lose during a cut. So if you easily give in every time that you’re feeling weak you only accelerate the process of you getting weaker faster while cutting. If you can somehow increase intensity during a cut that’s ideal but that’s something that’s really only going to happen to beginners so at the very least do everything you can to match it. Since we’re on the topic of exercise let me give you the next tip. You can reach ketosis faster, consistently deplete your glycogen stores, and burn more fat by adding cardio after your weight training sessions. Like I already said by performing an intense weight training session with heavy weight you’ll deplete the majority of your glycogen stores. By doing cardio directly after your weight training workouts you’ll be able to deplete even more glycogen stores and if they are already depleted you’ll switch over to primarily using ketones and fat for energy.
If you do cardio even low intensity steady state cardio before your weight training session you won’t have the energy to work as hard as you can while lifting weights. We’ve already discussed how that could negatively impact the amount of glycogen you deplete, and how a less intense workout will produce more muscle atrophy throughout a cut. But another thing you should know is that a less productive weight-training session can impact EPOC. Epoc stands for excess post-exercise oxygen consumption which essentially occurs because your body needs the energy to repair your muscles after you’ve challenged them with some heavy weight training. It allows your body to continue burning fat after the workout is over. You can create more epic by doing weights first and then be finishing off with cardio. This way you get the fat burning benefits of cardio after depleting glycogen stores from weights and you still continue burning fat after your done.
Now for the last tip I know I already spoke of fat fasting, but you can do more of a regular combination of Keto with traditional fasting for a very powerful effect. This is by far one of the best ways because when you have periods of not eating throughout the day not only do you drop insulin to very low levels allowing you to burn more body fat but you’re also not taking in any carbs in fact you’re not taking in any calories at all.
My passion for fitness began when I was 14 years old. I naturally fell in love with training and haven’t stopped since. At 18 years I acquired my first personal training certification from ACE after which I opened my first gym in 2011, Gravity Training Zone. I'm now in the process of opening up my third location! I love to share my knowledge through personal training, my online courses, and youtube channel now with almost 1,000,000 subscribers!
