Tip: This post is a bit dense. If you just want to know what I’m eating on a day to day basis, skip to the bottom. I’d suggest reading the whole thing for context though 🙂 If there’s any saying that I try to live by, it would be always learning. This is something that I’ve […]

Without a doubt, the biggest health trend of 2017 is the ketogenic diet. Everyone is looking how to get “keto” for magical health benefits, but I’m here to tell you something different. Ketosis is not healthy. That’s right, I said it. Elevated ketone levels do not equal elevated health levels. A ketogenic diet certainly can […]

Keto is so hot right now. Ketosis is the new kale, paleo, and superfood trend all wrapped up into one. The keto trend is also impressive as it is making a somewhat complicated nutritional approach that provides tons of health benefits something buzz-worthy that is now getting attention.  However, because of the booming growth, everyone […]

  Would you like to lose some fat? A ketogenic diet is a pretty good tool to help you reach your goal. You can use exogenous ketones which have been a popular way to help get people into ketosis and comply with the transition from eating carbs to eating fats. Once in ketosis, use real food to […]

  You’ve been on a short fast, but your mental energy is lagging, your physical performance is struggling and you feel like you need a pick me up. You reach for some exogenous ketones as this is what the benefits of the products claim, but wait! Won’t that kick you out of your fast? Won’t […]

We’re nearing the end of the ketosis experiment I started two months ago, so it is time to recap the data and see where we’ve come. Before you piss your pants with excitement, I have some bad news for you.  Unfortunately, last week is the first time that I got a lot of the initial lab […]

Are you making a critical mistake when it comes to ketosis? I’ve been extremely guilty of it in the past.  One of the biggest mistakes for people trying to improve their health is the misconception that a low carbohydrate diet equals a ketogenic diet. Unfortunately, this isn’t the case and could be killing your efforts to […]

Beta…hydro…what? Technical and “science-y” words can be super intimidating, but we’re here to break down one of the top buzz words in the ketogenic diet community — betahydroxybutryate (or BHB). We’ll chat all about what BHB is, why you’d want to use it for energy, and all about side effects and benefits of BHB. WHO […]

What mistakes are you making when it comes to your health? I know I’ve been making plenty. That’s why I’m tracking my data in this recent ketosis experiment that I’m doing. What about you? Most people think that the ketogenic diet is just “low-carb” which leads them to make many mistakes that prevent them from […]

Having high levels of ketones doesn’t mean you’re automatically getting all of the benefits. Luckily, research shows us that there’s an easy way to know if you’re in prime therapeutic mode so you can be confident you’re getting the best results.  Ketosis can already be complicated if you don’t test and figure out what kicks […]

I have to be honest with you. I’ve been making some critical mistakes. I was assuming that I was in ketosis for months but I’m now finding out that isn’t the case. Not even close. I’ve finally hunkered down and have been measuring my ketones the right way and the results have been pretty surprising. […]

The results are in! Here are the results of my ketosis experiment. This post will detail my four-day fast ketosis kickoff period. So… if you think I’m going nuts and wondering why the hell I would fast, well, one, I can assure you I’m not and two, I suggest you read my highly informational article on why I […]

  I’ve already gotten a lot of questions from people on how I’ve been eating while I’m running my ketogenic diet research experiment. The answer? Not that much differently than right now. As I wrote in the original article, I had already been doing about 60% ketogenic diet, and the main differences will be an […]

Why the hell would anyone want to fast?! This is a question I was blasted with when I mentioned recently that I’d been fasting. I’m used to pushback from people when something I do goes against a strongly held paradigm. This time the challenged belief is “humans need to eat every few hours or else […]

At this point, I consider myself pretty immune to what internet trolls say to me. I have a pretty tough skin, usually laugh off nonsensical comments, and carry on with my day. This last time was different.   When checking the social media account for my ketosis supplement company, Perfect Keto, I noticed a rather […]

Truth-be-told, I probably went a little overboard when explaining why I decided to ditch “paleo” . Yeah, I included a lot of words, and one hell of a fancy graph. But…after the article made a few rounds, I realized I was missing something important – I never mentioned my replacements for “paleo.” If you read my last article, […]
