A mature-aged reader reached out to me on my website, requesting clarification on how to transform themselves into a fat-adapted state. He asked for step-by-step guidance based on my experience. I explain my approach to fat-adaption, using fat as the primary energy source to lose fat and keep the lean muscle. This article is not advice but aims to share my experience in my fitness transformation journey.

Unless we get a fat-adapted state, ketogenic diets and intermittent fasting initially can be very challenging. Once the body learns how to use the stored energy in absence of food, most of the discomfort from fasting disappears. With the production of ketones, we may feel better physically and mentally.

I share my perspectives and experience in this short article.

Below, I summarize the request from this valued reader.

Dear Mehmet,
