Four New, Cutting-edge Ways To Easily Shift Your Body Into Fat-burning Mode & Ketosis.

Great article. You actually answered my question as to the ratio of the 3 BHB salts which is quite helpful for me. For me, I had Keto O/S and found it quite good – my favorite was the chocolate swirl. But it was and is very expensive. Only 15-20 servings and would break the bank. So I turned to KetoCaNa and I’ve tried two flavours. Both of them were so salty that I almost threw up every time. Like flavoured sea water. Also only 15 serving per bottle. Then I turned to Ketond which is okay – Tigers Blood and Caramel Macchiato. What I like about Ketond is that it has a full 30 servings and is very transparent with it’s ingredients. It’s also the same price as Keto OS but you get 30 servings. But still, not the best taste. So in the end, I ordered 1kg of pure BHB Magnesium from a supplier in China and I will be developing my own Ketone product with 30 servings as a lower price than all the competitors, and with more Magnesium, and Calcium in it than Sodium so that it tastes the best and actually helps with weight loss (which Magnesium is proven to do at the right amount). What the companies don’t tell you is that actually Sodium BHB is the cheapest, then Calcium BHB and the Continue reading >>

    Unfortunately, biochemistry is not the kind of topic that can be easily researched online without formal training. There are a number of points you make that are incorrect. I keto myself, so don't think I am trying to attack your general position here.
    Starvation and the keto diet are actually nearly identical from a biochemical perspective. The key pathway is fat mobilization, where fatty acid chains are broken down two carbons at a time to produce energy. When this process starts to happen faster than your body can manage it, some of the chemical constituents of the process actually break down to become the ketones that can be detected in the urine and breath. In other words, ketones are a side effect, rather than a major player.
    The idea that a calorie deficit, ie starvation, is somehow bad, is incorrect. Anybody who is using diet and exercise to become more lean is doing the same thing. There is no magic method to lose weight without some form of starvation. The reason why the keto diet does not cause significant lean tissue loss is that the starvation involved is not sufficiently severe.
    An important point that you bring up is the idea that the keto diet stabilizes insulin levels. This is basically correct. Insulin signals cells to take up glucose from the blood, and also tells the liver to begin glycogenesis - the process of packing glucose into glycogen. High blood sugar triggers this. These effects are basically reversed by adrenaline, which tells the liver to start breaking glycogen down to make glucose.
    Part of the difficulty with this is that with a normal diet, blood sugar spikes after meals. This leads to cyclic variance in levels of glucose, insulin and adrenaline. As the cycle progresses toward the adrenaline end, you start to get cravings for foods that will once again spike your blood glucose.
    However, when you are relying on fat mobilization to make glucose, these spikes are greatly reduced. Fat mobilization is not efficient, and is not able to provide sudden bursts of glucose. It is more constant. This makes athletic activity much more difficult aswell.
    But this is the real reason why the keto diet works - it mitigates the cycle of spiking and lowering blood sugar, providing a more level and constant supply. This reduces the propensity for craving food.
    In essence, the keto diet is not unique in terms of the basic biochemistry of metabolism. It simply makes 'starvation' more tolerable, and easier to manage. For many of us, that is exactly what we need.
    Edit - swapped 'gluconeogenesis' with 'glycogenesis'.

    Insulin signals cells to take up glucose from the blood, and also tells the liver to begin gluconeogenesis - the process of packing glucose into glycogen. High blood sugar triggers this. These effects are basically reversed by adrenaline, which tells the liver to start breaking glycogen down to make glucose.
    Insulin inhibits gluconeogenesis (creation of new glucose), you probably meant glycogenesis (conversion of glucose to glycogen)?

    You are right on that one. The word I was looking for was glycogenesis. It can be a little tricky to remember that between glycolysis, glucogenesis, and gluconeogenesis, one means glycogen synthesis, and the other two mean glycogen breakdown.
