Are Exogenous Ketones Good For Weight Loss?

Exogenous ketones are a hot button topic in the keto world. Some are putting them up on a pedestal like the holy grail of ketosis and weight loss…

But, as I’ve said before, there is no magic pill (or oil) you can take for instant health or weight loss.

Ketone esters, ketone salts, MCT oil…what can they really do for you? Do they help with weight loss? Or guarantee ketosis?

Check out this video for the pros and cons of exogenous ketones:

Keto Macros: Should You Follow A 4:1 Ratio?

If you poke around online for information on the Keto diet you will find a LOT of differing opinions. One particular area of controversy is how to initially set things up.

Some recommend a 4:1 fat to protein/carb ratio. Others insist that one must hit specific percentages like 75% fat, 5% carbs and 20% protein.

The blessing (and curse) of low carb eating is that doing things “wrong” can work reasonably well. For awhile…then, folks experience problems and set backs and get discouraged. Some simple tweaks and knowledge might be what’s keeping you back from success with fat loss and improved body composition. 

Check out this video to see how you should tackle keto macros:

Episode 416 – Dr. Michael Rose – Aging, Adaptation, and Diet


For Episode 416 of The Paleo Solution Podcast we have guest Dr. Michael Rose. Dr. Rose is a prolific evolutionary biologist whose work on aging has transformed the field. Evolution has described the field of aging research as “after Rose,” thanks to his influential book Evolutionary Biology of Aging. In 1997, Rose was awarded the Busse Research Prize by the World Congress of Gerontology. In 2004, he published a technical summary of his work on the postponement of aging, Methuselah Flies, followed in 2005 by a popular book on the topic, The Long Tomorrow. His most recent book, with L.D. Mueller and C.L. Rauser, is Does Aging Stop? He has more than 300 publications, and has given hundreds of scientific talks around the world. He is currently a Distinguished Professor of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology at the University of California, Irvine.

This was a super interesting episode. We talked about evolutionary changes in diet, how young people may be more adapted to agricultural diets, how that changes with age, and how your background and ancestry can affect how you handle agricultural diets and foods as well. I definitely recommend giving this one a listen.
