Ketosis 101

Meet The Mighty Ketone

What comes to mind when you hear the word ketoneIf it’s zero-carb snacks and super high-protein bars, you might be missing the most important part: that ketones don’t come in a package. 

In fact, ketones are tiny molecules produced naturally in our bodies. They serve as an alternate energy source for important organs like our heart and brain after we use up our body’s store of glucose. The more ketones we produce, the closer we get to a state known as “nutritional ketosis,” a natural metabolic state in which your body adapts to burning fat rather than carbohydrates for fuel.

How To Test For Ketosis

Ketone Levels And You

Guidelines for following a low-carb lifestyle are simple, well established, and easy to understand. But the truth is that people often react very differently to the same lifestyle change, and it can be quite difficult to tease out the effects certain foods have on your own metabolism. This is why measuring your ketones is essential if you want to fully reap the rewards of a low-carbohydrate lifestyle.

Ketone tracking is hugely beneficial to first-time carb cutters, as these people often test out which choices might increase their ketone levels. But it’s also useful for anyone who has already reached nutritional ketosis and strives to stay there. After all, understanding what kicks you out of ketosis is just as valuable as understanding what puts you in it!
