The Fastest Way To Get Back Into Ketosis After cheating

Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's means a lot of opportunity to indulge in carbohydrates as you celebrate the holidays with friends and family.
It's totally possible to have a perfectly Keto Holiday, but if you choose not to, that's ok too. 
It's hard to stick to Keto during the holidays, so no judgement if you indulged.
Now that's you're ready, I'm going to show you the fastest way to get back into ketosis after cheating.
Here's the fastest way to get back into ketosis when you're ready:

First of all, you need to get back to the basics

Just like when you started Keto you'll need to make sure your diet and exercise adhere to the principles of the Ketogenic Diet.

1-Drastically Cut Carbohydrates: 

How many carbs you can eat per day varies, but stick to 20-50 carbohydrates per day.  Track your macros in an app like Carb Manager or MyFitnessPal to make sure you're staying within the limits.  Going ultra low-carb is easy.

2-Load Up on Healthy Fats: 

In a Ketogenic Diet, healthy fats make up around 70% of your daily calories.  These can include fats like avocados, grass-fed butter, olive oil, ghee, coconut oil, and MCT oil.  Beyond traditional fats, you can also have fatty foods such as egg yolks, nut butters (with no added sugars), olives, and fatty meats that are grass-fed and grass-finished.
That's really all it takes for the fastest way to get back into ketosis after cheating.  But, there are some things you can do to speed this process up.

How To Get Back Into Ketosis Faster

1-Intermittent Fast

The most common way of doing this is only eating during an 8-hour period during the day, and then fasting for 16 hours.  This forces your body to use body fast for fuel, which is then converted into ketones in the liver, and BOOM, you're in ketosis!

2-Exercise Harder

by exercising while eating ultra low carb, your body will be forced to burn up the carbohydrates it has in storage.  Once those are gone, you metabolism will switch to burning fat for fuel.  When that happens, you're in ketosis!  Exercise speeds up how fast your body uses the carbohydrates it has in storage, putting you back into ketosis faster after a cheat.

3-Drink Tons Of Water And Include Electrolyets

only eat when you feel the urge and remember to drink lots of water
if you’re feeling weak or the keto flu coming back, include electrolytes like pink salt to help alleviate some of the symptoms

4-Eliminate Nuts And Dairy

leaving out dairy (cheese including cream cheese and heavy cream) at least for the first week will help speed up the process
cutting out or limiting nuts can help reduce inflammation as well as help to reduce the amount of calories that you can easily overload on with nuts

In Conclusion:

Don’t beat yourself up – try to move on and learn from your mistakes so you can be aware for the next time.
It’s not important to stay in ketosis-year round.
Don’t feel like you ever need to punish yourself for cheating or falling off the keto wagon. The most important thing is to look at your long term health goals as well as your progress and then move forward.
