I continue to fuel my body with ketones because of its effect on brain function. Ketosis’ main attraction to most people is its ability to produce smooth, almost effortless weight loss.

Ketosis makes weight loss quicker and easier.

Fat Loss and the Role of Insulin

When a patient asks for weight loss help, it often goes without saying that they are asking for help to get rid of their excess fat. No one has ever asked me to help them shed weight by trimming muscle tissue. Weight loss means getting rid of the contents stuffed in your fat-storing cells.

These cells fall under the commanding leadership of a mighty ruler: INSULIN.
If insulin is present, glucose molecules evacuate from your blood- mostly in to your fat storage. If there is insulin near a fat storing cell, all fat stays locked inside. If you want to use the energy of your fat cells, insulin must leave the scene. Insulin is also the chemical messenger that allows glucose into the cell. Without insulin, those extra glucose molecules never gain access to your furnaces. They remain in your bloodstream, outside your cells.

Using Exogenous Ketones is a great little boost to help get your body burning ketones, give you a quick hit of energy and I’ve even been told it’s a nice little mood booster.

Here’s what one reviewer on Amazon said:
“I have tried many different exogenous ketone drinks and supplements. This one was one of the best that I have tried. Do yourself a favor and add a little heavy whipping cream to it. It will not disappoint.”

Thanks for tuning into my channel.

GKI [GLUCOSE KETONE INDEX] = Glucose divided by 18 : Ketones

DR BOZ RATIO: Glucose divided by ketones.
This math was easier for my mom to do … and for my patients.

Dr Boz RATIO LESS THAN 80 [ comparable to a GKI of 4:1] = This is the weight loss zone. Some autophagy may be happening.

Dr Boz RATIO LESS THAN 40 [ comparable to a GKI of 2:1] = This zone has strong benefits with deep tissue/organ inflammation and auto-immune problems. (Leaky gut, brain fog, Crohn’s, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Hashimoto’s) More autophagy should be happening.

Dr Boz RATIO LESS THAN 20 [ comparable to a GKI of 1:1] = This is the zone I use for patients with Cancer & extreme health issues. This was my mom’s category. This zone is really hard. No playing around. Make sure your doctor is watching you closely. Almost all that reach this zone are likely to have autophagy at this stage.

The two most common question I get …

1) “Doc, what BLOOD METER do you recommend?”

ANSWER: FORACARE: http://bit.ly/2QKGmKG

For years my diabetics told me this system was great. I tried several others before I bought this one. I can’t count the number of times I have tested my blood only to get an ERROR message from the strip. Grrr. I hate that. FORACARE gets my vote because it is accurate and takes only ONE test strip to get the results. YES!!
