In this video, Dr. Berg talks about how to get into ketosis and the confusion that comes along with it. The type of ketones that is most accurate to test is the blood ketones – urine and breath ketones are good to test if you are just starting out because the ketones on this are not being metabolized or broken down.

Ketone Test
• Blood Ketones
• Urine Ketones
• Breath Ketones

What is Ketosis?
Ketosis is a condition where your body is creating ketones for fuel. Ketones are the byproduct of fat burning and it only represents 40% of fat and 60% are fatty acids. It is a combination of ketones, fatty acids and a very small percentage of glucose which can be created by the liver from the fat and protein that you consume. Ketosis is a state where it has to be created by lowering your carbohydrates.

Exogenous Ketones
If you are going to take straight ketones, you are NOT going to lose weight because your body’s stored fat is not being tapped into. You are basically taking ketones as fuel so your body doesn’t have to use your own ketones and fat.
Two situations where Dr. Berg recommends taking exogenous ketones:
1. If you are a long distance runner where you want extra energy.
2. Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, very frail and you don’t have a lot of fat to burn.

Ketosis Indications
• Hunger
• Cravings
• Energy
• Cognitive Function
• Mood
