Do Powdered Ketones Really Work?


If you have already tried keto, or if you are on it now, you have probably heard about powdered ketones.

The idea is appealing.

You put this pleasant tasting powder in a drink and voila! You are in Ketosis.

Not so fast. Sorry to burst your bubble. That’s not how it works.


Ketones are released in the blood when the body switches it’s energy source from sugar to fat.

It’s called being in ketosis. It’s the holy grail of the keto diet.

So let’s think of ketones like smoke coming from a fire.  The smoke/ketones let you know there is a fire burning somewhere.


The fire is ketosis


Can there be smoke without a fire?  Oh yes, definitely.

When I was a kid we played with fireworks of all kinds .  Firecrackers, rockets, cherry bombs, and …..smoke bombs.

These smoke bombs were little round balls with a fuse. Light the fuse, and smoke will pour out with no actual fire.


Powdered Ketones are smoke with no fire


If you take enough powdered ketones, also called exogenous ketones, your blood will show a higher ketone level.

But how did they get there?  Is there smoke with no fire?


Did fat cells actually get used up and create the ketones as a side effect?  No. No fat cells got used. No weight was lost. But do powdered ketones really work to lose weight?

Smoke doesn’t cause fire. Fire causes smoke. You can’t burn something by putting more smoke around it.

You have to start the fire first, then the smoke comes.

You have to get your body to start burning fat, then it will give off ketones into the blood.

You can’t put the ketones in and then think the body will start burning fat. Sorry.


There are no studies yet that show any significant weight loss benefit from powdered or exogenous ketones.


Anyway, what if you couldn’t get them for some reason? It’s much better to depend on our own system and our regular supply of food. That is something you can control.

Do powdered ketones really work? Not for weight loss. Maybe they have some other benefits. Ok.

But to lose weight, it’s Keto ON!

Keto Got Me Pregnant

Keto Got Me Pregnant

Keto Got Me Pregnant!


There are so many women who have trouble conceiving. This is not medical advice, but what I know and have experienced.

There is one major cause of many women having trouble conceiving and or carrying to full term. It is gluten and associated proteins.


The keto diet removes all forms of gluten from the diet.


Gluten intolerance is actually present in the whole population according to studies. Some people have very low sensitivity to gluten, while others are extremely sensitive.

Where you fall on that scale determines how much trouble gluten will give you.

Yes, people joke about it who don’t know about it. But I nearly died from it, so I’m not laughing.

There are other conditions that can cause problems, like PCOS. Keto has been shown to help with that also.

Being obese can affect your hormones and menstruation cycles. So losing weight through keto is a double benefit for that. Lose the weight, get your menstrual cycle back on track so you can conceive.


If you are one of the lucky ones who can say “keto got me pregnant”, don’t forget the 9 months after that.


Let’s say for example, if it was gluten that was messing with your body, then why would you start eating it again when you finally get pregnant?

Gluten is also associated with mis-carriage. A lot.

So even if you don’t stay on full keto during pregnancy, get your carbs from other sources than grains. You see, all grains have either the full gluten protein, or a part of it.  The “Non Gluten” grains like Qunoa, Amaranth, Millet, etc, are not really gluten free. They all have part of the gluten protein, and all of them will make your body react in some way.


If you get pregnant through keto, then stay pregnant through keto.


Or at least modified keto.

I have been Gluten free for at least 15 years, so yes, you can live without it. In fact, you might only live without it.

Keto is really no different than any other diet as long as you keep it balanced. You get all the macronutrients you need. If you are getting pregnant, you might want to take a good natural multivitamin supplement to make sure. Talk to your doctor or nutritionist.

Obviously, crash dieting, even using keto, is not a good idea during pregnancy.

Don’t forget the guys! High carb diet leads to low quality sperm, so he could be on keto for a while before you try to get pregnant. It could make all the difference, and it really costs nothing more than your food bill to try it.


Good Luck, and keto on!  Hopefully you are the next to say “Keto got me pregnant!”

Keto Saved Her From Diabetes

We’ll call her Jane.

She never thought much about her food growing up. Yes, she was overweight, but not all that much.

Then, at age 23, she got diagnosed with type 2 diabetes!  She had had it for several years and didn’t know it.

The doctor gave her medicine and some general diet advice and sent her on her way. She didn’t realize how serious it was.

Until she got pregnant a few years later. Then she realized it is a serious condition that needed serious attention.

Working with her doctor, she lost 50 or 60 pounds, but it didn’t help her blood sugar at all. How much you weigh is not the whole story with diabetes.

She actually was good at losing weight, but not controlling her blood sugar.


She had to take matters into her own hands. She started reading and learning and came across keto. It was a revelation.


With her doctor’s permission, she started the keto journey.


The move to keto was hard for her. But she was determined to see it through.

After a couple of months, her blood sugar improved to the point she cut down on her insulin.

Her doctors were thrilled and told her to keep it up.

Finally, she got completely free of insulin. No more injections several times a day with bruises from the needles. She also cut down on other medications. Keto saved her from diabetes.

The hardest thing for her now is when she is with family and friends. They appreciate her health and beautiful new body, it’s not that.


It’s that she can’t often eat what they eat. So, like most of us veterans, she often brings her own food to these gatherings.

She slides a little, and gains some weight back now and then. But then she recommits and gets back into the right habits.

“It’s OK if you aren’t perfect. But you do have to stay committed. This diabetes is a serious disease and I have to be constantly on guard. My advice is to not let yourself get it in the first place.”


“Eat right starting today, and the rest of your life will be much better.”


Jane’s relationship with food is the main change she has made. She was a binge eater and had to get over that. She slipped and cheated some, which led to weight gain.

But it’s a marathon, not a sprint. She never gives up and neither should you. Keto saved her from diabetes, and it could for you too.

She’s managing, and you can too. There is a beautiful, bright life of health and fitness in front of you. Just take the first step.
