How Long Does It Take to Enter Ketosis on the Keto Diet?

Benefits of the Feeding Tube KE Diet

The KE diet is a revolutionary weight loss program that helps you lose weight by taking the weight off of your shoulders. With the KE diet, you never have to worry about slipping up on your diet because you will be given a tube that delivers a low-calorie, protein-rich, and fat-rich solution with all the nutrients you need. The food solution is kept in a shoulder pack that delivers food through the nose 24 hours a day over a period of 10 days. Dieters can also complete the program over five days if they prefer a shorter commitment.

The KE diet eliminates carbohydrates and sugars, which makes it easier to adapt to a healthy diet without those substances once the ten days are over. Because the body does not receive carbohydrates during this time, it enters a state of ketosis. The amount of time it will take to enter ketosis depends on the individual, but it usually takes a few short days. For those who are good candidates for this diet, the benefits they can experience include:

  • Improved energy and strength due to receiving essential nutrients
  • Weight loss
  • Immune system support

What Is Ketosis and How Do You Know If You’ve Entered It?

The importance of ketosis comes back to carbohydrates. For those who are watching their weight and exercising, carbohydrates are a central focus. Whether you are preparing for a game by “carb-loading” or eliminating carbs to lose weight, these small biomolecules tend to play a large role in the nutritional plan. Normally, the body converts stored carbohydrates into energy to fuel the body. When there are not enough carbohydrates in the body to burn, the body burns fat and makes ketones, which are used for fuel. Once the body runs out of carbohydrates to burn and turns to fat, the ketosis process begins.

When you first enter keto, you might experience what is known as keto flu. These symptoms tend to last a few days and include fatigue, headache, irritability, difficulty focusing, lack of motivation, dizziness, sugar cravings, nausea, and muscle cramps. These symptoms are temporary, but many of the benefits of ketosis are far-reaching. These benefits include:

  • Reduced appetite over time
  • Reduced triglycerides, which reduces risk of heart disease
  • Reduced blood sugar and insulin levels
  • Potentially lower blood pressure
  • Reduced likelihood of metabolic syndrome
  • Improvement from symptoms of several brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s disease, and epilepsy

Who Should Consider a KE Diet?

The KE diet gives people the opportunity to kickstart their weight loss without undergoing major medical changes or surgeries. Before anyone is allowed to begin the KE diet program, lab work must be completed to determine if their body is in the proper condition for this diet. Halfway through the program, patients must have another appointment so we can ensure the ketone levels are ideal, check on their progress, and answer any questions they might have. It is important to note that this diet is not for everyone. For those who do make good candidates, they can experience incredible benefits and an effective launch into their weight loss journey.

Which Weight Loss Treatment Is Right for You?

If the KE diet doesn’t seem like your cup of tea, Novopelle Med Spa offers plenty of other weight loss treatments. Which treatment is best for you will depend on your individual fitness goals.

  • Is your goal rapid weight loss and muscle retention?

If so, our medical weight loss program might be right for you. This program is a hormone-based diet that involves a small dosage of Human Chorionoc Gonadotropin hormone, or HCG, which is a bioidentical hormone naturally produced by the body that works to reset the metabolism. The average reported weight loss for this program is .5 to 1lb per day.

  • Are you concerned with lowering your cholesterol levels?

If this is the case, B12 injections might be the treatment option for you. Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy and helps make DNA. Because B12 helps with red blood cell formation, it also helps prevent anemia, which can lead to tiredness and weakness. It also supports bone health and helps prevent osteoporosis. This powerful vitamin can even reduce your risk of macular degeneration, which is an eye disease that has negative consequences on your central vision. Beyond that, B12 can improve mood and symptoms of depression, can prevent loss of neurons in the brain, supports heart health, and supports healthy hair, skin, and nails. B12 injections, also known as lipotropic shots, will give you a boost of energy and help boost your metabolism. These fat-burning injections help your body break down stored fats and give you a boost of energy. Lipotropic shots can also support liver function and promote fat excretion.

  • Are you self-conscious about cellulite?

It is important to realize that cellulite is completely normal. Cellulite affects 90% of women and 10% of men, mostly in industrial nations like the U.S., Canada, Japan, and many countries in Europe. While many people believe that cellulite is the result of fat, this is not always the case. The creation of cellulite is a natural process that occurs because of inflammation of the skin, which contributes to a breakdown of collagen. Novopelle Med Spa offers two treatments that can directly help those who are self-conscious about cellulite: body wraps and body contouring. Body wraps give the skin a smoother texture and increase peripheral circulation. The process consists of a strategically designed concoction that is massaged into the areas of concern. Patients typically see a cellulite reduction within one to two weeks following the procedure. As far as body contouring, Novopelle Med Spa offers a special body contouring service called Novo Lipo. Novo Lipo is a non-invasive body contouring treatment for circumferential and cellulite reduction. It works by heating and destroying stubborn fat cells. These cells are naturally drained by the body’s filtration process. The results of the treatment are dramatic and long-lasting, and there is no downtime for the treatment.
