Get Out Your Running Shoes
It’s no secret.
Running, exercising, and breaking a sweat will improve your health and help you lose weight.
Did you know walking, running, and other aerobic activity boosts ketone production as well?
According to a study designed to evaluate the power of ketones, walking for 30 minutes triples blood ketone levels! Yes, you heard that right. Walking triples ketone production.
So, if you’re tired of fat bombs and want to boost your ketone levels, you can simply take a stroll!
Amp Up the Fat
Having a hard time getting into ketosis? If so, how much fat are you consuming?
It’s no secret, fat boosts ketone production. That’s why it plays a central role in ketogenic diets.
If you’re trying to amp up your ketones, embrace healthy fats and make sure you’re getting enough butter, animal fats, eggs, avocados, and other naturally high fat foods. When on a keto diet, most of your calories should come from fat and these food sources.
To get serious about your ketone production and do everything right, try incorporating more coconut and MCT oil into your diet. Both of these are easily converted to ketones for maximum fat burning efficiency.
Cut Back On Protein
Are you eating too much protein? Your body converts a percentage of the protein you consume into glucose each day. If you want to produce more ketones, you need to cut back on your protein to help minimize glucose production.
If you’re following a keto diet, you need to calculate the suggested amount of protein needed daily for your body. Not sure how to do this? Don’t worry, you can learn all about calculating your macros on our How Keto Works page.
When cutting back on your protein, it’s important not to go overboard. Although less protein will result in higher ketone numbers, you’ll also be hungrier and more susceptible to both protein and carb cravings.
Ditch the Carbs
If you want to benefit from ketosis, carbs are your arch enemy. Carbs from grains and sugar are broken down into glucose, which blocks ketone production. By eating more fat and seriously limiting your carb consumption, you’ll lower your blood glucose levels and begin transitioning into the state of ketosis.
Unfortunately, for most, this is easier said than done. With carbs taking up valuable shelf space almost everywhere you go, you need to resist temptation everywhere you look. This is why ketone supplements are such a big help!
Everyone knows caffeine increases energy and boosts metabolic rates. However, very few realize caffeine also acts as a ketogenic agent.
In a recent study, researchers found caffeine increased the beta-hydroxybutyrate ketone production of the study participants by 88 percent per 150 mg and 116 percent per 300 mg. This is equivalent to the ketones produced after an overnight fast.
So, when you’re ready to place your Prüvit KETO//OS order, you may want to get the charged up version.
