I posted a few weeks back about my experiments with exogenous ketones compared to MCT and coconut oil, and comparisons between different dose protocols (e.g. Keto+MCT, Keto+MCT+protein) [HERE]. And also a look at how (my) blood ketone levels responded to the way I habitually eat, which is to be low-carb, high protein, high fat during the day, and higher carb at night (some people call this Carb Backloading). [HERE]
So, a few people have asked what happens over the day when you have exogenous ketones in the morning, and follow this type of plan....
Always happy to oblige with a bit of N=1 self-experimentation I have sporadically charted BOHB results throughout they day when having either a sachet of Keto//OS in the morning OR a 1/2 sachet of Keto//OS with 1 x Tbsp. of MCT oil (XCT by BulletProof) in conjunction with Carb-Backloading.
