Avoid This Ketogenic Rip-off

The Truth About Exogenous Ketones Ketones are all the rage among low carbers. And like most things in nutrition and performance, we've found a way to get them in supplement form so we don't have to do any actual work. What are ketones? They're a byproduct of ketosis caused by the process of converting fat to fuel. Your body makes them when it's in a calorie or carb restricted state. What do they do? The body and brain can use them as fuel without the presence of glucose in the blood. And now, you can take ketone supplements (salts and esters), known as exogenous ketones, without actually restricting anything.

    on the other hand, if i sold some seriously overpriced capsules that have nothing to do with weight loss (think $100 psyllium husk/lite salt) and included "what you need to do for them to work" manual (which would be keto), i would make a fortune and people wouldn't be nearly as opposed.
    it's a mentality thing.
