Ketosis and Ketones w/ Dr. Dominic D’Agostino Ketogenic Diet Expert & Fat Burn

Ketosis and ketones what are they. When in a ketotic state, carbohydrate intake is so low that the body shifts over from burning glucose as a primary source of fuel to using fat and its own fat stores for energy.

Essentially, when in ketosis you become a “fat burner” instead of a “sugar burner.”

Our ancestors remained in ketosis during the cold season, eating a low-carbohydrate diet of mostly meat and lots of quality fat, and then naturally shifted out of ketosis in the summer due to the consumption of plentiful seasonal produce.
