So, most of my readers know that I'm into hacking and self-experimentation AND that I've been involved in low-carb and keto in clinical practice, and as a researcher, for twenty years.
Despite having used keto-diets for two decades and experimenting heavily with medium chain triglycerides (MCTs) and other things to either hasten entry into ketosis or help increase ketone levels for cognition and fueling, I had never tried exogenous (from outside the body, i.e. a supplement) ketones.
Many of my students and colleagues were asking questions about exogenous ketones and so, although I could answer the questions from a scientific basis, I always think that you need to temper that with an experiential approach too.
I decided to do an initial little self-experiment using Keto//OS. A supplemental betahydroxybutyrate (BOHB) product.
