Default Ketosis vs keto adapted vs fat-adapted

From what i have read it can take 2 to 6 weeks to become keto adapted.

What is the difference between though between ketosis and being keto adapted and fat-adapted and how do you tell if your keto adapted?

This is something i read...

Quote:
ketosis is the state of burning fat instead of carbs/sugar for fuel.

Being fat-adapted means you can switch easily between both fuels. From sugar, to fat, back to sugar, back to fat.
Also from another...

Quote:
Being fat-adapted means your body can utilize both ketones and sugar as energy. You want to be fat adapted rather than ketone-adapted. Ketone-adapted means your body is so used to utilizing ketones that it might have trouble utilizing sugars should they be reintroduced in significant enough quantity.

Once you're in ketosis and you've adapted and you then eat enough carbs to where your body will refill it's glycogen supply you will no longer be in ketosis. But you will still be keto adapted.
Just wondering if this is right?

Zuko? Please put up the links to this data - one of them I know is Mark's Daily Apple - put up all the rest too. This is not negotiable. 'Something' you read is not sufficient, you must show where you read it.

If you insist on using copy/paste from other websites without providing links to where you got it, I'm going to start deleting your posts for not providing the links.

Unsolicited promotional links are prohibited, yes. But rule #7 expressly requests that you post links to the source of any text you intend to copy/paste.

And we still need the links to Mark's Daily Apple, if you please.

Couple different processes going on when trying for ketosis. Ketosis is when your liver is taking in cleaved particles from lipid oxidation and forming ketones. Ketones are used to provide energy to all cells that can not make energy on their own, no mitochondria. When ketoadapted your brain and other cells that can not burn lipids directly use ketones. Your muscles utilize fat directly.

The more one reads about all these the more he gets confused its unreal

Quote:
“Ketosis” is almost impossible in a normal person! Don’t waste your
money on the highly promoted “ketosis strips.” Adapting to a higher fat,
higher protein diet will almost never produce ketosis. From the Textbook of
Medical Physiology, page 869, we learn the truth:
“ On changing SLOWLY from a carbohydrate diet to an almost
[even] COMPLETELY FAT diet, a person’s body adapts to the
use of far more acetoacetic acid than usual, and in this instance,
ketosis normally does not occur. For instance, the Eskimos, who
sometimes live almost entirely on a fat diet, do not develop ketosis.
Undoubtedly, several factors enhance the rate of acetoacetic acid
metabolism by the cells. Even the brain cells, which normally derive
almost all of their energy from glucose, after a few weeks can derive
50 to 75 percent of their energy from fats.” (emphasis added)
This is the truth based science. Next time you hear about the “horrors of
ketosis,” give them this information, and once again, stop wasting money
testing for ketosis–you won’t find it. The solution is to stop gaining fat by
minimizing carbohydrate consumption. It’s that easy.

If I find one more reference to Brian Peskin, I'm going to delete the whole thing.
