Ketosis is natural for everyone. It is the adaptation to use ketones, not sugars, for energy, especially in the brain.
As you burn fat, fat [by-products] can be converted into ketones (but does not happen for everyone all the time)
A “KETO DIET” does not guarantee ketosis.
Fat adaptation does not mean you are automatically adapted to producing and/or using ketones.
As a professional Ironman Triathlete I was very fat adapted, and very aerobic, and yet I experienced situations during/post races where I bonked because I had low blood sugar and was not adapted to producing/using ketones.
In this episode I clear up a few things
- Confusion around ketosis
- Confusion between ketosis and keto diet
- Confusion between needing to choose one diet
- And lots more!
And I answer questions from my Instagram – follow me @petejjacobs so you can ask a question next time 🙂
