Switching from low carb to keto can be a drastic departure for many people, including both sedentary dieters and highly active lifters. For starters, if you’ve been in low-carb mode specifically to keep body fat low, you’ve likely also been keeping dietary fats fairly low, dedicating the bulk of your macros to protein.
With keto, you have to adjust your approach. A keto macro split looks more like:
Many lifters look at this and think: "Wait, 70% fat! Only 25% protein? How can I make gains, stay lean, and not feel like I'm going to die during a workout?"
How does the body survive, let alone perform at a high level, with so few carbohydrates? It switches operating systems.
Without carbohydrates for fuel, the backup mechanism for the body is to tap into fats—your body’s other preferred energy source.
The liver converts those fats to ketone bodies. As the body streamlines the production of those ketones and they become your primary fuel source, you enter into full ketosis.
Many people describe ketosis as a sharpened state where you feel mentally and physically on top of your game, but it's worth noting that there's a lot of metabolic diversity, meaning that some people run better off carbs or fats than others.
