Default Keto adaptation takes time (article by Phinney and Volek)

On the blog of Stephen Phinney Md, PhD and Jeff Volek PhD, RD
Keto Adaptation - Some clues to its complexity.
Bottom line: keto-adaptation will likely be defined as the net effect of many parallel responses to a well-formulated ketogenic diet, with these various responses occurring on differing timelines, and to differing degrees across individual phenotypes/genotypes. These many variables aside, however, the timeline for full keto-adaptation will likely be measured in months rather than days or weeks.
Lots of details, and well cited. A bit over my head, but understood most of it.
