Getting Started

We want to set-you up for success for your Ketopia Program. The goal is to shift the body into Ketosis to the fat burning stage both morning and evening. When first starting on Ketopia, your body is working hard to burn through the carbohydrates and sugars you have previously eaten so it may take 2-3 days to get into ketosis in the late evening. We recommend you limit your carbohydrate intake to no more than 50-net carbs per day which forces your body to use more of its glucose stores, called glycogen. When the body’s glycogen level drops to about half of what it was from the start, the liver dips into your body’s fat stores in order to provide the energy you need to function. Then you are in ketosis and the fat burning will begin.

STEP 1

Purchase ketosticks (for urine testing) and Magnesium Citrate or Magnesium Oxide (250 mg) (for healthy bowels) at a pharmacy.

STEP 2

Mix your Ketonx with 20 oz of water and ice. Start drinking on an empty stomach in the morning. Drink it over a 45 – 90 minute time frame. Don’t gulp it down. 

STEP 3

3-4 hours later, have your KetoCream shake for lunch. Men should add a snack to their lunchtime to ensure they are eating sufficient calories. Free Meal Plans with your purchase.

STEP 4

Be sure to drink plenty of water!

STEP 5

2-3 hours later, have a healthy evening meal which will be high fat, moderate protein and low-carb. 

STEP 6

Coffee drinkers should drink their coffee in the morning, 1 hour before their shake or later in the day. Coffee spikes insulin and should be used in moderation. We recommend you do not drink coffee in the first few days of the program or add 35% whipping cream to your coffee, or have Bullet Proof coffee. 

STEP 7

Snack on 1 oz. cheese, celery sticks, 4-6 almonds, macadamia nuts or walnuts.

NOTE: Check the ingredients and carbohydrate counts when choosing food.

5 tips to shift and maintain the body into ketosis 24/7

Your KetonX drink will start your day off in ketosis, however the ketones will dissipate throughout the day and you will not necessarily be in ketosis your first 3-5 evenings until your glucose stores are used up. So the fewer carbohydrates you eat and the more active you are during those first few days, the faster you will achieve ketosis in the evening.

  1. Stick to green salads the first 3 days.
  2. Do not have any of the limited higher carb vegetables.
  3. Try and keep meals 3 hours apart and have small high fat snacks if you are hungry. (purchase extra Doughbites to combat hunger or have 1 oz. cheese, with a few pieces of celery, or 6 almonds)
  4. Ensure you are having high fat protein or adding fat to your protein. Add a pat of butter (not margarine) to your meat.
  5. Avoid any processed drinks or food. Manufacturers are allowed to say 0 carb or 0 sugar if it is under 1 gram. That means it could have .9 grams of sugar! Even a little sugar will throw you out of ketosis and all those extra carbs can add up and raise your carb level and keep you out of ketosis.

Once you are in ketosis every day, morning and evening, then you have burned through all your glucose stores and can introduce higher carb vegetables into your evening meal. Every individual is unique and the time it takes to achieve ketosis on a 24/7 basis will depend on a variety of factors. Age, health, activity level, % of body fat, medications and lifestyle can all affect the time it takes for the body to achieve nutritional ketosis.

Ketopia has been designed to get you there every day, but you need to give your body time to become keto-adapted. It is normal for many individuals not to test positive for ketones in the evening for even their first 5 or 10 days. Keep your carb count low, and keep going.

If you have lost 3-5 pounds in the first week and have other “symptoms” of ketosis such as decreased hunger and improved mood and energy, then you may be in ketosis even if it’s not showing on your ketostick. Medications and even drinking large amounts of water, prior to checking the ketostick may dilute the urine enough to cause a false negative reading. As long as you are experiencing a good weight loss and the other signs of ketosis mentioned above, you can assume you are in ketosis. If not, you can assume that your ketostick is negative due to your high carbohydrate or protein intake or accidental sugar intake. Reduce your carbohydrates, or protein, eliminate any processed food and increase your activity and you should see the results.

Some individuals experience mild nausea, headaches, constipation, diarrhea, fatigue or muscle cramps. This is commonly called the keto-flu and should only last 2-4 days. This is your body adapting to burning ketones instead of glucose. Drink plenty of water to combat these symptoms. If you experience dizziness or extreme nausea you may be severely dehydrated, drink 3-4 glasses of coconut water per day. This will replace lost electrolytes and fluid loss.
