This past Christmas my husband gifted me a KetoMojo. I used it a few times, and always my ketones were low. Frustrating, but I’ve been told my body is just more efficient at making/using them and has fewer to waste. Makes sense.
Then I ran across a video by Carnivore’s Angel where she shares her talk with Dr. Bozworth and was advised to reduce her protein, raise her fat consumption and keep her carbs below 20 total. I had been consuming a high amount of fatty protein while keeping my carbs below 20. Dr. Boz told her, (Carnivore’s Angel), that she wasn’t in ketosis because she was eating so much protein. She tested and had very low ketones, barely registering any.
I decided to apply that advice to myself since I have been gaining fat this year and my own ketones had been registering very low (.2 - .5). It’s still early in testing, but I have found that when I reduce my protein (1 gram of protein to 1 lb of desired body weight goal) and fill up on fat, my ketones have increased steadily. I’m only a few days in, but am finding this very intriguing and will continue to see if it results in fat loss.
Anyone else have a similar experience? I know one size doesn’t fit all, but I suspect that because I started out (almost 4 years ago) at over 350 lbs and was certainly diabetic (although undiagnosed) I may be more sensitive to protein.
