Exogenous Ketones and “Keto” Products

I’m seeing this more and more these days, and I feel it’s important to educate the Keto Community, especially those just starting out on what these companies and products are really about. Multi-Level Marketing Pyramid schemes have been around for a long time.  Remember Amway, Tupperware, Avon?  Yeah yeah… I know, we don’t call them […]

What is “Nutritional Ketosis”?

IN A NUTSHELL: Nutritional ketosis is a state of health in which your body is efficiently burning fat as its primary fuel source instead of glucose.

In 2005, John Kiefer published a book called Carb Night Solution, which kind of went along with of Carb Backloading, something that is popular in the weightlifting circuits.  The idea was to manipulate insulin and leptin levels, and take the calories you’re […]

Sweeteners

While some say that sweeteners do […]

Courtesy of Keto Andie Hydration is vital in this particular way of eating (WOE). I often see posts where people are complaining they are suffering from the “Keto Flu” and the advice tends to always be drink water or drink salt water. Water is not how you stay hydrated and sodium is only one of […]

Macros, Bulletproof, ketones – oh my!

The low carb/keto world has gotten overly-complicated in previous years, and unnecessarily so. When we started out in 2006, there was very little information on the internet. Though Atkins had been around for some time, there was still a lot of skepticism about this ‘diet’ and even, rather especially, the medical community didn’t encourage people […]
