From what I've been reading on it, it's almost like the higher the fat in the first day, the quicker you'll get into it. Some people suggested like 50-60 (or even more) percent of your calories coming from fat and as little carbs as possible. Like down to 15%.Ron J

Try to get a little bit more of saturated fats."Bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into, but hard to get out of." - Anonimus -

Recovery is key. Massages, epsom salts baths, foam rolling, sleep masks, contrast showers, it all adds up. Get a foam roller, The Stick, a tennis/baseball, use them and stay healthy, pain and injury free.

Getting into ketosis quickly is about dropping liver glycogen levels quickly.
The best way is to do low intensity cardio which will drop liver levels without dropping muscle levels too much.
Obviously, the lower your carbs the better but no need to go lower than 20g IMO. Don't take more than around 150g of protein, as conversion to glucose can occur.
Having said all that, try doing a heavy leg day (even better do a GVT routine, 10sets of 10rep squats), that'll see you back in ketosis pretty quick

so working large muscle groups helps to deplete liver glycogen levels quickly? I thought that this sort of anaerobic activity would deplete muscle glycogen more. and what are you taking as a shake after your leg workout?
My shake uses grape juice, to tryy and avoid preferentially repleting liver glycogen.
Remember, the liver will give up its glycogen to help maintain plasma glucose levels, so really anything that reduces plasma levels will help you get back in ketosis.
The reason for low intensity cardio being used is to induce ketosis and save muscle glycogen levels for your weighlifting days.
