Time to leverage the information from the previous shows and try out a ketogenic eating period! First, be sure you are highly fat adapted, ideally with months under your belt of primal aligned eating. In particular, you want a virtual elimination of grains, sugars and refined vegetable oils, and definitely an average daily carb intake under the Primal Blueprint standard of 150 grams of carbs per day or less. Make a minimum 6-week commitment to going keto, where you will limit carb intake to 50 grams per day or less, and limit protein intake to a range of 0.5 to 1 gram per pound (1.1 to 2.2 grams per kilo) of lean body mass. Essentially, your macronutrient profile will be high/very high fat, low/moderate protein and very low carb. 

Avoid chronic training patterns and overly stressful lifestyle behaviors that will tip your ship in the direction of carb dependency. Consider using supplements like Kegenix, KetoCaNa, Pruvit, etc. to turbo-charge your ketone burning and perhaps get you over humps like energy lulls and you recalibrate your metabolic machinery in the direction of ketone burning.
