How To Use Exogenous Ketones

How To Use Exogenous Ketones

Exogenous Ketones were introduced in 2014, about the same time as I was recovering from having my daughter, and therefore very concerned about weight loss. But let’s back up for a bit, because if you’re here reading about Exogenous Ketones, and how to drink ketones for weight loss, let’s start at the beginning so you have a firm foundation to build if you do decided to take a ketone supplement for weight loss. First of all, Exogenous Ketones (we’ll get to exactly what those are in just a sec…hang in there) were introduced as the Ketogenic Diet started gaining popularity among the health and fitness community, as well as with the scientific community. Why? Well, it’s all about health. For so long, doctors and researchers have preached the benefits of a low-fat diet to prevent and correct all sort of things like heart disease, high cholesterol, obesity, etc. But….they may have been wrong. I am not a doctor, and do not have a medical degree, but I’ve done my homework, and I’ve lived (and am currently living) a ketogenic lifestyle. So I’ve done this, I’ve read loads and loads about it, and I’ve even been able to help many of my friends use the things I’ve learned to lead healthier lives. But, as with anything concerning your health, please make sure you have a discussion with your doctor before making a drastic change. Related: I lost 23 pounds in 60 days of Keto. Here’s how. Ok, legal stuff over, here’s what a Ketogenic Diet is: A Ketogenic Diet, also know as the Keto Diet, is a very high fat, very low carb, moderate protein diet that is very popular because it can cause you to lose body fat very fast, and study after study after study has linked Keto with benefits against cancer, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, epilepsy, and more.

Bpi Sports Keto Weight Loss Fat Burner // Is It A Scam?

Bpi Sports Keto Weight Loss Fat Burner // Is It A Scam?

My BPI Sports Keto Fat Burner First Look: Falling foul of the standard corporate face of the latest BPI Sports incarnations this is as similar to their other product line which can be great to identify a brand you may like, but an absolute shit to sometimes identify the correct product when in a hurry. I guess it is similar to when you take home your new born from the hospital. I mean they are all babies, great, but they all look the same. This particular product tries to cash in on the Keto diet which has regained popularity but has been in’service’ since the 1920’s, so the diet at least isn’t a new thing. However, this is the first fat burner aimed at those on the diet, particularly when those on the diet are entering the phase whereby they feel sluggish and generally deathly. Sounds fabulous. Ingredients Vitamin D – A great Testosterone boosting vitamin that must be taken advantage of to trigger further production of Testosterone in your body. However, there are two types of Vitamin D. There’s calciferol (vita min D2) and cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) – we are only interested in cholecalciferol which is D3; this is the type our skin synthesizes from the sun and becomes a hormone which results in the increases in our testosterone. Research by the US Library of Medicine has shown that testosterone productions are increased with Vitamin D3 supplementation. BETA-HYDROXYBUTYRATE (BHB) – The “BHB salt” is simply a compound that consists of sodium (Na+), potassium (K+), and the ketone body β-hydroxybutyrate. Ketones will also naturally act as a diuretic, so you lose salt, potassium, calcium and magnesium, and it is generally encouraged to increase sodium intake with ketones. Hence why there’s also Sodium, Magnesium and Calcium supplemented too. When yo Continue reading >>

7-keto: Supplement To Speed Metabolism?

7-keto: Supplement To Speed Metabolism?

The supplement 7-keto DHEA is being widely promoted as a means of revving up metabolism in order to lose weight, specifically belly fat. Other claims for the product are equally extravagant – that it can improve lean body mass, build muscle, increase thyroid gland activity, boost the immune system, improve memory and reduce the signs of aging. Very little scientific evidence backs up any of these claims. DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone produced in the adrenals and is available in synthetic versions over-the-counter. The supplement 7-keto-DHEA is a derivative of DHEA, but unlike its “parent” hormone, it does not affect sex hormone levels in the body. (I do not recommend that anyone take DHEA without medical supervision. It poses an increased risk of heart attack and breast and prostate cancer.) Proponents say 7-keto DHEA promotes weight loss by speeding metabolism – the rate at which the body burns fat. However, we have limited knowledge of this effect since there have been very few clinical trials of the supplement and no long-term investigations have been performed. All of the studies reported so far have been quite small; the largest included only 30 participants when it ended. As far as the effect of 7-keto DHEA on weight loss is concerned, the supplement has been shown to increase resting metabolic rate in participants who already were on weight-loss diets and were engaging in regular exercise. In the study, which lasted eight weeks, participants who took 100 mg of 7-keto DHEA twice a day lost about 6.3 pounds compared to a little over two pounds for those who received a placebo. Based on what I’ve read, taking 200 mg of 7-Keto DHEA daily seems safe enough. None of the studies found any significant side effects. However, since all of the studies Continue reading >>

Pruvit Keto Os Exogenous Ketones Review – Miracle Supplement?

Pruvit Keto//OS Ketone Operating System Review Hello! Hi, my name is Rachel Vrabel and you can find me on Instagram @womensblogtalk or on Facebook. Today I’m reviewing a supplement made by Prüvit called Keto//OS (Ketone Operating System), which is a powder you mix with water and drink once or twice daily that tastes delicious! Keto OS puts your body into a fat burning state of ketosis within 30 minutes by flooding your body with exogenous ketones. The skinny is – you’re burning FAT rather than carbs. Good for weight loss? Heck yes! And extremely safe. But what’s even more amazing is how you FEEL (remember that, because ketones are NOT just a fat loss aid, that’s just side effect of being in ketosis!) Remember the Atkins Diet – high fat, low carb? It’s a tough diet to follow, but one that works to shed weight quickly if you can endure the food restrictions. A similar diet is the Ketogenic Diet which is a high fat/moderate protein/low carb diet and there are plenty of restrictions. But what if you don’t want to follow a strict diet but you still want the benefits of being in ketosis? This is where Keto//OS sets itself apart from every other supplement on the market!

Bpi Sports Keto Review: How Safe And Effective Is This Product?

Bpi Sports Keto Review: How Safe And Effective Is This Product?

BPI Sports KETO Overview BPI Sports KETO provides the most effective fat burner in the weight loss* industry. The need to control weight gain or cut off excess weight cannot be avoided. Due to this, various weight loss* supplements have been developed besides the routine exercise and diet prescriptions. As a result, many people have fallen prey of various supplements that do not live up to their promises. Therefore, for any person willing to lose* weight, understanding the working ability of the product is key. Additionally, one should choose a supplement that suits his/her schedule. BPI Sports KETO provides the easiest and most effective ways to cut some pounds. How BPI Sports KETO Works? BPI Sports KETO, like many other weight loss* supplements, facilitates weight loss* through acting on fats. This product is thermogenic, meaning it reduces* weight through increased metabolism. In the body, weight gain is caused by the accumulation of fats through conversion from excess carbohydrates, proteins and those naturally absorbed from the diet. Excessive availability of proteins leads to deposition in tissues such as the skin and other organs. Metabolism is the process that facilitates the destruction of accumulated fats. Naturally, the body cannot account for maximum metabolism of these fats. This is why you require BPI Sports KETO to stimulate this process through its thermogenic effects. BPI Sports KETO Ingredients BPI Sports KETO is made from all natural ingredients including the following: Vitamin D3 – Specifically, cholecalciferol, this element has similar structure and functioning with testosterone, cortisol, and cholesterol. It is used to treat* vitamin D deficiency, softens bones and stimulates metabolism. Conjugated linoleic acid – CLA is a molecular compound th Continue reading >>

Avoid This Ketogenic Rip-off

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. According to those promoting this nasty-tasting supplement, that means you can have a brain and body fuelled by ketones, along with all of the supposed health benefits that come with running on fat. Well, don't fall for it. Exogenous Ketones = Endogenous Fat Storage? The problem with ketone supplementation (EXOgenous) is that it's not even close to the same thing as being in ketosis (ENDOgenous ketone production). And just like the butter-blended-into-coffee trend, it's a farce. Ketones may be depressing dieters' hunger and giving them a hit of energy and cognitive enhancement, but it's INHIBITING their ability to burn fat, providing zero nourishment, and doing nothing for their metabolic health. There's an assortment of evidence suggesting that it's probably making things worse. Think of exogenous ketones kind of like alcohol. When they're consumed, everything is stored and nothing else is burned. So any lipolysis (fat burning) that would be taking place is halted; any glucose and fatty acids in your blood that were circulating are stored; and the ingested ketones are burned until there aren't any left. More importantly, this clearance of alternative fuels (glucos Continue reading >>

Keto Weight Loss Fat Burner Review

Keto Weight Loss Fat Burner Review

KETO Weight Loss is a new introduction by BPI Sports, which promises to be the best fat burner supplement out there by supporting weight management and improving endurance and focus to fuel your workout sessions. But does it really live up to the expectations? Is it worth your money and time? Did it make it to our list of top 3 fat burners? Keep reading to find out. Packaging KETO Weight Loss was a serious let down in terms of packaging. It has a combination of light blue and white on its label, and a black lid with bright yellow lettering- not exactly a combination you’d expect to see in a weight loss supplement. Ingredients While the packaging turned out to be pretty okay, KETO Weight Loss seems to be interesting when it comes to ingredients. It seems to contain a good set of ingredients, but on the downside, it is a proprietary blend, and the proportion of the ingredients is not revealed. Let’s take a closer look at the ingredients and decide if it is worth it. KETO Weight Loss Blend This proprietary blend contains ingredients such as Beta-hydroxybutyrate, Calcium Beta-hydroxybutyrate, Magnesium beta-hydroxybutyrate, Sodium beta-hydroxybutyrate, Caffeine anhydrous, Guarana extract, Medium chain triglycerides, Coconut oil powder and cocoa extracts in varying quantities. KETO Weight Loss also claims to be the first ever ketogenic weight loss formula that is specifically designed for low carb eaters who are looking to increase their fat burning power. When taken in the right quantity, it can help support weight loss, enhance mental focus, control appetite, improve endurance and do a lot more. The MCTs and BHB salts help compel the body from burning glucose to burning fat for energy, thereby giving you that bout of sustained energy to help your workouts get better. I Continue reading >>

Using Supplements To Maximize Your Ketogenic Diet

Using Supplements To Maximize Your Ketogenic Diet

Science shows that the ketogenic diet is an effective way to lower blood sugar in diabetes, control insulin resistance, and optimize cholesterol. One of the most common questions we get from people is how to utilize supplements to further reap the benefits of a carbohydrate-restricted diet. Below we outline some science-backed supplements and reasons you might want to use them in order to optimize your carbohydrate-restricted diet. About 145 million Americans use nutritional supplements each year—that’s almost one-half of the population. [1] Fight Triglycerides with Fish Oil Supplements According to Nutrition Business Journal, Americans spend over 1.2 billion dollars on fish oil supplements per year. But what are they exactly and can they benefit your health? Fish oil supplements are capsules that contain various oils derived from the liver and skin of fatty fish such as salmon, sardines, and mackerel. They are rich on a special kind molecule called omega-3 fatty acids, a polyunsaturated fat which helps protect against heart disease and potentially a variety of other health conditions. Omega-3 fatty acids come in one of three varieties. The first one is called alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), which is found in foods like canola oil, soybean oil, walnuts, and chia seeds. The other two, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), are only found in fatty fish and fish oil supplements. Omega 3 fatty acids are an essential food; this means that it isn’t naturally produced by the body and you must obtain it through dietary means. Unfortunately, many American don’t get enough of any of these three types of omega-3 fatty acids in their diets. Recent research suggests that fish oil supplements may lower levels of triglycerides, fat molecules found in the blood Continue reading >>

What is KETO OS Side Effects Our Personal Results Testimonial New flavor Where to Buy Recommendation User Reviews Prüvit Keto OS Review This is a personal review, Click here to visit the official KETO OS website You’ve probably heard of “being in the state of ketosis” which is when your body is burning fat for fuel instead of glucose (sugar/carbs). Or, maybe you’ve heard of the Ketogenic diet which is the high fat/low carb diet used in medicine to put your body into ketosis.

Weight Loss Supplement

TESTIMONY OF THE DAY From a phone client who is a body builder and was stuck at a plateau: “Good morning!! I have great news!! Even though I am still waiting for the results from my blood work I weighed myself this morning and I lost 3.5 pounds since Wednesday!! I don’t know why I wasn’t losing weight before I haven’t changed anything. I have been feeling great too, I don’t think I’ve had anxiety at all this past week!! Thank you!!” Jessica If you want to get past your plateau, click HERE to get started! You deserve it! CLA and Weight Loss CLA (Conjugated Linoleic Acid) helps increase lean muscle mass. It is a fatty acid that is found in some of the foods we eat. At one time, beef, turkey, lamb and dairy were exceptional sources; however, when we changed their diet from grass to grains, the levels of CLA dramatically decreased in meat and dairy products. If CLA is present, it is found in the fatty portion of milk. Drinking skim milk will never provide the benefits of CLA. CLA not only reduces fat but also preserves the muscle tissues. The most amazing part is not that it makes fat cell smaller but it prevents a small cell from becoming fatter. A low calorie diet often helps a person lose weight for a short period, but once the cravings take over and the diet comes to a halt, that person is even more likely to gain back the weight. CLA seems to stop this undesired weight gain from happening because it causes you to hold onto valuable muscles during weight loss. Studies show that CLA is also helpful in lowering blood sugar levels. In one study almost 2/3 of the volunteers had a reduction of blood glucose level and triglyceride levels. This supplement helps in reducing fat at a faster rate. At least 3.4 grams per day must be taken in order for it to show its Continue reading >>

Is The Ketogenic Diet Right For You? Nutritionists Weigh In

Is The Ketogenic Diet Right For You? Nutritionists Weigh In

You may be hearing a lot about the ketogenic diet as a way to slim down while noshing on butter and heavy cream. This way of eating is suddenly hot among venture capitalists in Silicon Valley, who believe it will help them live longer and healthier, CNBC reports. Some praise the high-fat/ultra low-carb plan for helping them to lose weight and have energy all day long. Other advocates say it finally helped them to get control of their body. How does it work and could it help you? We asked Bonnie Taub-Dix, a registered dietitian nutritionist and author of “Read It Before You Eat It”; and Keri Glassman, nutritionist, registered dietitian and TODAY Tastemaker. To start with, both said they would never advise the ketogenic diet for weight loss. “Cutting out carbs is usually an invitation to overeat them at another point,” Taub-Dix said. “For a diet where you’re looking to lose weight, look good and feel good… I would not recommend a diet like this.” “For safe and effective weight loss, the carb reduction is too extreme,” Glassman added. RELATED: Read inspiring stories of ordinary people slimming down in TODAY's My Weight-Loss Journey Here’s what you need to know: What is the ketogenic diet? It’s a diet fine-tuned in the 1920s to help treat epilepsy. It does help to control seizures in some children, but it’s not recommended for adults “mostly because the restricted food choices make it hard to follow,” the Epilepsy Foundation says. The diet has just recently begun to be touted as a weight loss plan, Glassman noted. She described it as eating “mostly fat with a teeny bit of protein and carbs.” How does it work? Your body normally relies on carbohydrates for energy. It breaks them down into glucose, which is your main source of fuel. If that Continue reading >>

The Insider’s Guide To Fat Burning Pills: An Evidence-based Review

The Insider’s Guide To Fat Burning Pills: An Evidence-based Review

If you want to know which fat loss supplements actually work, which don’t, and why, then you want to read this article. “Fat burning pills” are one of the most controversial supplements on the market, and for good reason: most are junk and some are downright dangerous, but not all are completely worthless… If you’re looking for pills and powders to help you lose weight, I have good and bad news for you. Let’s start with the bad: No amount of weight loss pills and powders are going to make you lean. Trust me. If you’re trying to lose fat, pill popping, even to excess, is not going to be enough. There just aren’t any safe, natural “fat burning” compounds powerful enough to, all on their own, cause meaningful weight reduction. Now the good news: If you know how to drive fat loss with proper dieting and exercise, certain supplements can accelerate the process. Based on my experience with my own body and having worked with thousands of people, I feel comfortable saying that a proper fat loss supplementation routine can increase fat loss by about 30 to 50% with little-to-no side effects. That is, if you can lose 1 pound of fat per week through proper diet and exercise (and you can), you can lose 1.3 to 1.5 pounds of fat per week by adding the right supplements into the mix. Another big benefit of taking the right fat loss supplements is they are particularly effective for reducing stubborn fat, which is usually belly fat for us guys and hip and thigh fat for girls. So, as you can see, even the best “stack” of fat loss supplements isn’t game changing, but I think it’s worthwhile for both the lean looking to get really lean and overweight looking to get lean. It makes the process of fat loss faster and more enjoyable and has no downsides or negative Continue reading >>

Keto Os Review

Keto Os Review

Created by Prüvit, Keto OS, which stands for Ketone Operating System, is a “revolutionary drink mix based on a proprietary ketone energy technology. It delivers advanced macro nutritionals and promotes optimized cellular regeneration, energy and longevity.” [1] Also known as the keto diet, KETO OS is a line of supplements that promise to turbocharge your metabolism and send your body into ketosis without resorting to the draconian no-carb, all-fat diet. The History of Ketones Known for centuries, it wasn’t until a hundred years ago that ketones (Beta-hydroxybutyrate) were used to treat seizures in kids with epilepsy. A “neuroprotective effect” was produced, which calms the nervous system. Soon researchers were exploring an expanded use of ketones to help with mental, emotional and cognitive health, according to Prüvit spokesperson Andra “Dr. Andy” Campitelli , a naturopathic doctor. She says ketone use was expanded as a tool to enhance athletic performance. Ketones result when the body burns fat for fuel. [2] Prüvit on Better Business Bureau There are two Prüvit profiles on the Better Business Bureau site, one in Indiana and one in Texas. Both sell Prüvit products, but have no website link. The Texas profile has an F rating, mostly for lack of response to customer complaints about return issues. The Indiana profile has an A rating, but no reviews or complaints, and it’s only been open a year. Neither profile lists the CEO the same as the website. There is no phone contact on either the Prüvit website or the Texas BBB profile, only an “Ask a Question” form that goes via email. The Indiana profile does have a phone number: (812) 631-4282.

5 Supplements For Ketogenic Dieters

5 Supplements For Ketogenic Dieters

When you make the decision to embrace ketogenic dieting—or "go keto"—you need fat and plenty of it. After all, all those calories that you used to get from carbs have to come from somewhere, right? And as Dr. Jacob Wilson pointed out in his "Ketogenic FAQ" article, eating excessive protein (at or above .67-.81 grams per pounds of body weight) can actually produce enough glucose to kick you out of the desired state of ketosis. Where the fat comes from, well, that's up to you. For many people, bacon, avocado, and heavy cream can found on the menu eaten at almost any meal, and never do you need to think twice about choosing egg yolks again. But even with the mouth-watering menu, the adaptation period to a ketogenic diet can be challenging. Many have felt compelled to quit before actually entering ketosis—which is when the pure fat-burning and benefits begin! These three supplement staples can help you make it through the dreaded "induction flu" that many experience during the early days of ketogenic diet, and help you and come out stronger and leaner on the other side! 1. Electrolytes Transitioning your body's preferred fuel sources from carbohydrates to fat can be tough. Not only does it take time to do so, but along the way, you're likely to have a few headaches, perhaps some nausea, and for some, day-long fatigue. This is the so-called "induction flu." As carbs get kicked to the curb, so do key electrolytes such as sodium and potassium. To prevent headaches and fatigue, consider an electrolyte supplement. If you're dehydrated or low on electrolytes, all of these symptoms are going to be worse. Compounding the quandary is that many people end up cutting out electrolytes such as sodium and potassium as their carb consumption goes down. Particularly if you're trainin Continue reading >>

Best Keto Supplements To Take For Weight Loss

Best Keto Supplements To Take For Weight Loss

Supplements can help promote good health or fill in any “gaps” we might be missing on a ketogenic diet. We’ve already talked about vitamins and minerals you may need to supplement on keto, but what about supplements specifically for weight loss? Below, we’ll cover the top supplements used by those eating ketogenic for weight loss and how to best use them. Exogenous Ketones Exogenous ketones are externally-made ketones you consume, meaning they aren’t created inside the body. Taking them can help you get into ketosis faster. And the faster you get into ketosis, the more you’ll aid weight loss efforts. There are three ketones created when we’re in ketosis, but beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) is the form used in exogenous ketones. By taking BHB, you’re giving your body an instant supply of ketones to use for fuel. They can also help you avoid some of the side effects of transitioning from eating carbs to eating fats. With the right exogenous ketones, you can get into ketosis more quickly than just eating a ketogenic diet alone (but you still must be eating for ketosis). However, not all ketone products are created equal, so let’s talk about the differences. How to Find Quality Exogenous Ketones Don’t just Google and purchase the first exogenous ketones product you find. The details matter. Here’s what to consider: Clean ingredients. Some products include a bunch of artificial flavors, fillers, gums, or binders. In fact, some will even contain carbs! This is neither good for you or good for ketosis. There’s a reason Perfect Keto Base has absolutely NO fillers, gums, sugars, or carbs—just pure ketones. 11.38 grams per serving, in fact. Quality ingredients. Source and quality matter! There’s no point in spending your hard-earned money on a ketone produc Continue reading >>
