    Depends on a few factors.
    -What's your diet look like (how many carbs/when)?
    -Genetics
    -current bodyfat %
    - insulin sensitivity

    Usually for a first time it's more like 5+ days (even up to 10 or more) but someone with really good insulin sensitivity and experience + good genetics can do it in a day or so.

    I am 24 pretty dang good genetics. I am at probably 13 or 12 percent BF. Diet is 1500 calories today I need to bump it up to around 2000 so I lose as little muscle as possible and I am currently at 182lbs. I am 5'8.

    And I am sitting at 20 carbs for the day. The rest is protein and fat.

    EDIT

    Also I am intermittent fasting from 8pm at night, through sleep, and then until lunch time everyday.

    I meant that more as an "its totally unpredictable without just trying" statement moreso then what are your stats ha. It's really just a trial and error kind of thing. No one will be able to give you an answer as to what YOUR body will do unless you find out for yourself by trying it. There's just too many unpredictable and personally specific variables for anyone to tell you how long it takes.

    something to try is taking a GDA pre bed. also your work out routine can be doubled on the first couple days to help push out the glycogen faster.

    Thanks for the info.

    Should I be switching to a more HIIT lifting routine while attempting Ketosis to more results faster?

    You can, but I adjust my split. Back/Shoulders Legs Rest Chest/Arms Legs. This I found to push pretty much all glycogen out of the body quick. For me it takes roughly 5 days after my carb up according to the ketostick. So I refeed every other weekend for this reason.

    Gotcha. I think I may have to do the same. My metabolism isn't what it used to be. Haha.

    Something that works well for me is making sure my fat is between 60-70% of total intake. I find if its closer to 50% I may stall out and if I kick it back up usually something changes with in a day or so. Drink plenty of water to help flush it out as well.
