My Thoughts On Exogenous Ketones

Should you supplement with exogenous ketones? What are the benefits? Which product is best? Are there people that shouldn’t use exogenous ketones? There is so much health information out there that when you want to determine whether or not something is good for you it can be challenging to know what’s what. Magic pills, super supplements and promises to a better life are yours for three payments of two hundred dollars. I do not wish to add to the aggravation, which is why I never endorsed exogenous ketones. Then, my mind was changed by many of you. Now, I can say that I’ve personally experimented with this ketogenic supplement and see that it can be helpful for some ketogenic people. Not sure what exogenous ketones are? Basically, they’re a supplement that deepens your state of ketosis by providing supplemental ketones. They can be especially helpful for kicking keto flu and assisting your body in becoming adapted. If you decide to supplement with exogenous ketones, my personal choice is Perfect Keto exogenous ketones. Why Perfect Keto? Well, to start, they are offering us an exclusive 15% off your first order of their exogenous ketones with the coupon code HEALTHFUL. So th Continue reading >>

What Are Exogenous Ketones: When And How To Supplement With Ketones

You can’t deny it. Exogenous ketones are one of the hottest products on the market right now, especially for those interested in ketosis and the ketogenic diet. But what exactly are exogenous ketones, and what do they offer? We’ll dive into that in this in-depth guide about how to benefit from supplementing with exogenous ketones. Exogenous ketones come in different forms and even more importantly can be used for several different applications. Fat burning, reducing ketosis symptoms, enhancing physical performance and mental performance are some of the ways that ketones can be used. WHAT IS KETOSIS? If you are new to ketosis and don’t know much about it, it is a metabolic state, where your body preferentially uses ketones (instead of glucose) for energy. This can lead to a host of different health benefits.

    I regret the day I discovered low carb. It destroyed my health in two short months, here I am struggling to eat normally again yet suffering the consequences and side affects harshly.
    I feel vacant, depressed and detached. I’ve already posted here http://180degreehealth.com/180forums/topic/months-carbing-destroyed
    I’ve been following Matt Stone’s protocol of restoring metabolism, restoring insulin sensitivity and utilising my glucose metabolism efficiently. Honestly low carb ruined me, it destroyed my glucose metabolism.
    I can’t handle starches, fruits, carbs, nothing. I’ve added them back slowly, transitioning from low GI to high GI gradually, over a period of two months. I just can’t handle carbs any more, whereas prior to low carb I never suffered with dizzy spells, hypoglycemia, brain fog, lethargy, low energy etc.
    For the past five days I’ve been following Matt’s protocol of more starches, sugar, saturated fat etc. I’m exceeding 2500 cals a day, and all my carb sources are from very starch dense foods, white rice, potatoes etc. and dry fruit like bananas and dates. These foods make up about 65% of my cals, the rest is protein and sat fat.
    My hypoglycemia episodes improved slightly on day 2, but they havent subsided and returned, especially after carb heavy meals. I have random moments of severe brain fog throughout the day and blood sugar swings erratically. I may be talkative and happy for a few minutes and suddenly crash really badly without warning.
    All this induced by a low carb diet, and all the symptoms I’m describing appeared on day 2 of my initial ketogenic approach. They have NOT improved since, despite gradually increasing my carbs back to sanity levels.
    I know I need to be patient but the frustration of feeling like shit for the past 3 months and not noticing any improvement is basically stressful. This constant zombie state is affecting every aspect of my life, socially, academically, mentally.
    I’m 23 with no known prior health problems. I thought my body would adapt better. Months have been wasted trying to correct my issues. I can’t progress. I really wanna stick it out. Right now I’m just binging out of pure frustration, of course it’s worsening my symptoms. I still get chills after eating and severe disorientation.
    I’ve tried every suggestion. More salt, less sugar more starch, more sugar less starch.
    I want to move on and ditch any type of restricting dieting for good. Felt like shit on low carb, eating MORE than prior to any dieting and still feel like shit. Should I be patient? My patience is wearing extremely thin.

  2. Hiss

    Ok like, I ate zero carb for 14.5 months. And when I started eating carbs again I experienced a lot of the symptoms you’re describing: fatigue, super fun mood swings, digestive issues, did I mention fatigue etc. They lasted for months. Like 6 months sounds right. Was it worth it? Absolutely yes.
    You mentioned you’ve been following Matt’s protocols for 5 days. I mean, I’m assuming you’ve been eating carbs again for longer than that but even so, this shit takes time.
    One thing that helped me was just sticking to mostly starch at the beginning. It was a while before I could eat sugar without it making me feel crappy.
    Also hi first post on this forum.

  3. Cody

    Interesting. It usually takes quite some time for people to have issues on low carb.
    Have you read eat for heat? I’m guessing you haven’t.
    If I were you, I’d find a way to calm down (maybe find a good therapist) and re-evaluate from a logical, calm perspective.
    How much water are you drinking?

What Are Exogenous Ketone Supplements And Are They Worth The Cost?

**all supporting articles are linked in text Great question. Yes we are seeing exogenous ketone supplements all over the place now largely because of the growing popularity of the ketogenic diet. Let’s get into what they do and how to use them. What are Ketones and What is Ketosis? Ketones are fatty acids that your liver produces in mass quantities when you are in a state of ketosis. There are two main ketones that we produce: beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) and acetyl-acetate (AcAc). AcAc is created first and get’s converted to BHB creating Acetone as a byproduct that gets released through your breathing. Your body’s preferred source of fuel for your brain is glucose, but if that were all our brains could survive on, we wouldn’t be here. Our primitive ancestors often saw shortages of food and blood glucose, so we developed the ability to burn ketones for fuel. So when our bodies are short on carbohydrate to supply blood glucose, our livers begin converting our fat stores into ketones. You are said to be in a state of nutritional ketosis when your blood ketones rise to between 0.5 and 5mM. To get into a natural state of ketosis, you need to do one of two things: 1) fast for seve Continue reading >>

    I thought this might help in understanding Ketosis.

    I thought this might help in understanding Ketosis.
    How does it work?
    Ideal Protein works by putting you in a “fat burning state”. This is more technically known as ketosis. Ketosis is a stage of metabolism where your body has depleted the reserves of its main form of energy – glycogen. Once those reserves are gone, your liver will being breaking down stored fat in the body for use as energy. Breaking down the fat yields fatty acids and three types of ketone bodies (hence, the name ketosis). The ketones are then burned by the cells in your body as an alternative fuel.
    Getting Into Ketosis
    Arguably, the worst part of being on the program is getting into ketosis. Our bodies have done what they’ve always done for millions of years – they’ve adapted to life as they know it. Our lives have led to us being overweight by indulging in bad foods in bad quantities. Our bodies are now used to that type of existence. Introducing a new nutritional paradigm (ketosis) to our bodies will necessitate it’s adapting to the new condition. This adaptation is stressful for the body and we will feel the effects.
    First, your body will notice a dramatic drop in caloric intake at first. We’ve gotten our bodies used to abundant calories and carbohydrates for long periods of time or to an up and down pattern of calories/carbs which our bodies see as “feast or famine”. Either way, when we take the calories/carbs away, our bodies will react:

    Hunger – you’re going to feel hunger because your body is used to having more than it has now. Not a typical for dieting in general.

    Fatigue – you’re taking in dramatically less fuel (food) than you used to and your body will probably try to compensate by getting you to slow down your expenditure of energy. It does this by decreasing your metabolic rate. This can make you feel tired, even dizzy. It’s a type of warning that your body’s giving you saying “if you don’t get some food, I’m going to start burning fat!”

    Headache – some report headaches associated with “carbohydrate withdrawl”. Whether it’s truly withdrawl or not, I don’t know. However, it certainly seems that way to those who suffer its effects. The typical headache relief methods (ibuprofen, acetaminophen, aspirin) are allowable while on IP, however your stomach may seem more sensitive to them because it’s no longer loaded with food. Try to use such products soon after having a meal and drink plenty of water.

    Irritability – when your hungry, tired and/or have a headache…you can be understandably irritable. Try to keep in mind that you may be more inclined to react negatively to things during this short time and don’t go off on those who don’t deserve it. The good news is that this transition generally lasts only 3-5 days. Once you’re in ketosis, you’ll feel a difference in your energy level. It will go up significantly as your body begins to enjoy having an alternative fuel source – ketones!
    Being in Ketosis
    As the ketones pervade your bloodstream to supply the cells with energy, your state of ketosis begins to manifest some side effects. Some of those side effects are disquieting, but they’re not bad for you. Ketones will show up in your urine, which are sometimes able to be detected with Ketostix, but the state of ketosis that IP evokes is so mild that often such tests won’t show a positive result on the Ketosix.One of the three types of ketones is permeable to the lungs and can pass from the blood through the lung walls and becomes incorporated into your exhalations, the same way that carbon dioxide passes out of the body. This can cause “ketosis breath” and a slight metallic taste in the mouth. This is unpleasant, but can be easily overcome with frequent brushing of teeth (a few times a day) and sugarless gum/mints.
    Menses can also be affected while in ketosis. Your cycle may be disrupted or cease all together. While this is an odd occurrence for a woman, it is not completely unexpected while in this state.
    You may occasionally feel hunger while in ketosis, but it should be more mild than normal. Since you’re eating every few hours, you shouldn’t feel that gnawing sensation associated with hunger prior to being in ketosis. As your body adapts to the new circumstances, it may even develop an internal clock that will make you mildly hungry right around meal time. For some, there is no hunger at all and people need to remember or even be reminded that they need to eat! Another side effect for some is an increased sensitivity to cold. Hands and feet can be particularly effected. I am normally very hot blooded, yet my hands and feet became ice cold when in ketosis. Hot drinks (tea, coffee, IP cocoa/chai tea/mocha/cappuccino), sweaters, heat packs, etc can all help with this.
    Breaking Ketosis
    Staying in ketosis revolves around keeping your body from getting excess carbohydrates. If your body comes to the conclusion that there are enough
    carbohydrates available to use as its main fuel source, it will end the ketosis state and resume using carbohydrates. This crash out of ketosis has some side effects as well:

    Hunger – your body will assume that since you’re getting enough carbs to end ketosis, there must be ample food available. Coming out of ketosis and having food available is exactly the type of situation that the body has adapted for over the millennia - “Feast or Famine”. Now, it sees it as a time to feast so that you can replenish the glycogen that you depleated while getting into ketosis. That replenishment requires more fuel – more food! Therefore, your body tells you to eat, eat and eat. You’ll be almost insatiably hungry.

    Immediate and dramatic weight gain – As your body restores its glycogen, you’regaining weight…quickly. Several pounds in a period of a couple days is not uncommon.
    Resuming Ketosis
    If you fall out of ketosis for some reason, the best thing to do is to start working to get right back in it. Follow the program as if you didn’t do anything to fall out. If you “cheated” and had a candy bar or a hoagie or whatever, resume the program as if you hadn’t had it at all. Keep on your meal schedule. Don’t abandon the day, weekend or week by just giving up on it because you’ve “screwed it up”. Just get right back into the program immediately. Doing this helps to significantly reduce the amount of time it takes to get back into ketosis. The longer you stay out of ketosis, the longer it takes to get back into it. So, hop right back on the wagon!
