Hi Keto enthusiasts -
With my week 6 of a strict Keto Diet.
I am still wondering if full adaptation is done or on the way.
While I feel some signs of adaptation (mood, lack of hunger, etc…) I’d love to understand more about the physiology behind.
Am I right saying that true fat adaptation occurs when the big chunk of our tissues do not rely anymore on Ketones to run normally but instead do tap into breakdown of free fatty acids (FFA) quiet exclusively (except brain, blood cells…).
Is this the real adaptation? I assume this switch do not come overnight and I’ve read that it’s a process of 3/4 weeks to happen. But is this to “start happening” and then the “switching” process will go on during a couple of months ? or is this 3 weeks to completely shut off ketones utilisation and being fully fat adapted via FFA?
