Ketones: From Toxic to Therapeutic to Ergogenic

As an athlete I always thought of myself as healthy. I followed what the “experts” suggested was my best diet for an endurance athlete;

  • High carbohydrates
  • Low Fat

Late last year and in January of this year I took a long hard look at my health because;

  • I could not lose the excess body fat I gained and carried over the last three years
  • I wasn’t sleeping well
  • I wasn’t getting the athletic performance gains that I was promised if I followed a certain workout protocol

It wasn’t until I finally took to heart something I believe in:

If I always do what I’ve always done, I’ll always get what I always got.

I finally had to look to change everything I was doing because clearly it wasn’t working. I didn’t want to go insane believing that if I did the same things I would get a different result.

This is when I discovered KETONES and a LOW-CARB DIET.

Carbohydrate Intolerance; Its Implications in Health and Fitness

Perhaps the most common cause of low quality of life, accelerated aging and chronic disease is the trio of increased body fat, chronic inflammation and insulin resistance. This white paper discusses the practical rationale for referring to the related dysfunctions associated with poor carbohydrate metabolism under the umbrella term Carbohydrate Intolerance.

Discussion

Introduction Many diseases begin to develop early in life. This happens long before most people, including healthcare professionals, would even consider the progressive nature of poor health in apparently young and healthy bodies.
