    So....what is the perfect diet for getting one's body into the state of ketosis?

    Does it depend on the person?

    You can fast for two or three days to kick start things if you want... I've done that once or twice.

    Also, MTCs are your friend.

    MCT*

    medium chain triglycerides ie; coconut oil
    Time is passing so quickly. Right now, I feel like complaining to Einstein. Whether time is slow or fast depends on perception. Relativity theory is so romantic. And so sad.

    Derp is right. MCT. Typo! *facepalm*

    MCTs are medium chain saturated fats that convert to energy very efficiently. They almost always become ketones at some point down the line. Will they put you in ketosis? Probably not on a large scale, but they can tip the balance in favor of it if ketosis really is your goal.

    You have to watch your protein intake to achieve ketosis. Too much protein can push you out.

    That's my problem with the idea of ketosis: you have to have moderate proteins and mostly rely on fat for energy. I don't pretend to know whether it is healthy and I know from what I read that it helps for certain brain conditions or in the presence of a tumor (cancerous cells feed mostly on glucose ... but someone can chime in if this is wrong). However, you deprive yourself from some very good foods which would kick out of ketosis. I think that if the ketotic state exists, it means that it has been necessary in the past. Today, with the easy access to foods (for most people in rich places - far from obvious otherwise), ketosis has little chance to happen. Is it desirable ? I don't know. But once in a while, it is probably not a bad thing to experience it.

    OK, that was a long babble, and probably a bit tangential to the topic ...
