To get into ketosis, you need to lower your carb intake. If you are consuming large amounts of food or 10,000 calories a day, you will still get into ketosis. The only catch there is the ketones come from your dietary fat not your stored fat being burned. This is the reason why you will only see minimal keto diet-induced weight loss. But, the good thing about low-carb keto diet is it’s still very difficult to gain weight, especially if you are pairing the diet with intermittent fasting.
What is intermittent fasting? This is an eating pattern that follows a cycle between fasting and eating periods. It follows several eating schedules like 16/8 method (fasting for 16 hours and eating within the 8-hour window), fasting for 24 hours once or twice a week, and fasting every other day.
To sum it all up: to achieve keto diet-induced weight loss, keep your carbs low, maintain your protein in moderate amounts, and adjust fat intake to your metabolism. Ketosis doesn’t guarantee a significant drop, but it can help prevent you from gaining more weight.
