Ok so keto is going well. Because I am soon to enroll in a severe hectic 6 week camp with 3 exercises daily I feel a little inadequate. My life has been sedentary for more then two decades now. My fear is that I will not have the mental strength or the physical ability to endure this 6 weeks camp. And I really need that camp to break all my old habits and patterns, if I can power trough all 6 weeks I would likely do wonders for my self doubt, self image and give me back the core belief that I can actually can be in charge of my own life and my own future.
Because this camp is so important to me, I feel I need to look at any and all supplements I can get my hands on that can help me without harming me. I don’t care if there ain’t no documented cases yet, or if there are only small studies that shows benefits. At this stage if it might work I will put down the money and give it a try - as long as it is not harmful to me. And I don’t bother with any illegal substances so there is a line I don’t cross.
What I look for are faster recovery, more energy, mental boost and less chances for injury.
Any studies or own experiences about these supplements are welcome. I know most people will not need this, but for the camp will be a high stress situation that my body and mind is not really ready for. And to work out three times a day, it is crazy really for a man of my size and composition.
I would like to get some insight to supplements. There are are some that I take already, a few by doctor’s order. And a few because I think they can help me forward. Here is what I am currently taking, or have put in order for. Ketone supplements I have already paid and ordered so those I will take. Brain octane might be a hype, but I’ll give it a try along regular coconut oil to get quick energy and more slow energy from coconut oil.
Supplements I already take/ordered
- Vitimain D on docotors orders.
- Vitamin B B6/B12/folic acid
- Brain octane mct 8
- coconut oil mct 10
- Ketone supplements on order.
Supplements I consider:
- Collagen protein
- Qo10 ***
- nositol ***
- choline ***
- Magnesium ***
The ones marked with *** is because I am not sure of the benefits, what impact I can expect or if they are or should be part of the keto life for en shorter or longer period.
I don’t think I will be taking all these long term. But I will be taking them during the camp to have any little edge possible that might up my chances to make it to the end.
