I got a bit different question I’d like to get some clarity on. I’m a rather fit male (25 years old).
I’ve been doing keto for a few month, and I love it. What I have been doing for quite a while now is eating one meal per day. This work really well, I get to enjoy all the good food, don’t need to worry about food during the day and have tons of energy.
From what I’ve heard, ketones levels are lowest in the morning and highest in the evening (correct me if I’m wrong, due to cortisol etc). For me however, my ketones are lowest in the evening (just before my meal) where I it’s close to zero. I use Ketonix for measure and the levels shows high values during the day.
I do not worry about it in any way but I would like to know if my theory is right. Could it be that somewhere in the evening, the fat that I ate the previous night have been fully consumed and due to my low body fat percentage (~5%) my body rather hold onto that? Strangely enough my energy is highest in the evening but I guess that could be due to like liver glycogen being released.
Thanks in advance!
