    Have you read the book?
    Eating primal is not a diet, it is a way of life.

    here are mark's two recent posts on the topic:

    What Does it Mean to Be Fat-Adapted? | Mark's Daily Apple

    How to Become Fat-Adapted and Other Questions Answered | Mark's Daily Apple

    he gets right into how to become fat adapted right after the intro on the second one, using these suggestions:
    Ramp up your fat intake.
    Reduce your daily carb intake to about 50 grams if sedentary, 100-150 if you are highly active.
    Avoid lean protein.
    Reduce your workout intensity.
    Be nutritionally replete.

    but, still, you should really read the book.

    I highly recommend the book "The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living" by Phinney and Volek. It gives you the why and the how.

    So that is it?

    I just started reading the book. But I just wanted to get jump start on this.

    Right now I am doing the NSNG, so my carb consumption is very low. The biggest thing is adding an apple and blueberrie to my smoothie. I do add coconut oil to it too. So if I take out the apple and blueberry, and scale back on intense workouts should be good?
