    Just wondering if people in here have much experience on ketosis diets and the supplementation with BHB salts to help induce ketosis
    A mate of mine is doing the ketosis diet ATM , he claims all the benefits, rapid body fat loss , increased cognitive function , better endurance etc
    I'm tempted to give it a crack , Gona be hard though as I do love a good carb ,
    So if you have thoughts or experience with ketosis and or BHB type supplements I'd love to hear your opinions
    Cheers

    Grab some Keto sticks from the chemist too so you can do a urine test to see if you actually kick into keto mode! :)

    Yep I've got the sticks , I'm going to buy a BHB supplement and see how I go , pretty interested to see how well I can cut body fat , from my reading I understand the BHB salts will get me into ketosis immediately without having to be too strict on diet , it also aledges more energy , increased endurance , improved cognative function
    Anyway I'll give it a crack and see what happens

    My limited understanding take BHB salts ( or any ketone type supplements) piss on stick ketones show up you are not in ketosis. You are simply seeing presence of ketones in your urine from the supplement you have just taken.

    Reduce your carb intake to less than 50gr a day piss on stick in a week and you will be in ketosis.

    Raspberry ketones will do exactly what your bhb salts above will do and they have been around for years and years

    I've bought some BHB salts and also mtc oil , I will start next week when I get home ,I am to lean out and not loose muscle mass
    . I will be trying to add lean mass , so yeh I am actually going to try and loose fat and gain muscle , I know the general consensus is that you can't do this but I have read several articles on keto and they claim that once your body adjusts to its new fuel that it is indeed possible , it's claimed that protein synthesis is possible without or on a very low carb diet, time will tell .
    In the very least I should get very cut and go for lean bulking from that point , I don't think I've ever really got very lean ( not fat though )
    I will post back and report how things have gone

    Is it possible to move this whol thread ?
    Mabey to weight loss ?
    I’ve got updates I’ll post here but if someone can tell me if I can move whole thread
    So been on BHB for a 3-4 days also taking MTC oil daily
    I did reduce carbs a lot on the 2 weeks leading up until now so I was pretty close to been in ketosis ( Mabey )
    General feeling of well-being is up ( not like I’m off my face with a glowsitck and whistle and being a general dick ) but yeh feel good
    Haven’t lost any aggression or power , having said that I have changed my workouts a lot , focus on body weight compound moves and hill sprints ,
    Haven’t lost any weight on the scales but lost body fat around torso ( really my go to area for fat storage ) I’ve almost got abs and from the sneaks peaks I do get a pretty fucking ripped torso aka some buff cunt that looks strong ,
    However I’m not as thick , I do look pretty lean but it’s kinda a nice change .
    My goal is to get lean as I can , 10% bf would be sweet , then slowly build/ maintaine a strong lean bod .
    I’m 41 and can’t be fucked being huge
    For big dudes that want to cut it might be worth a crack though , keto up for 4 weeks while running test and var or some such shit
