I have been on the Primal diet forum for a week now challenging some of their concepts. At the end of the day, I see it as a rehashed low carb diet.
Something interesting came up today. Using glucose or ketones for performance...
I found an interesting article: http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/...-brain-ketones
It would be great if some really experienced users could help me with this.
So my question really is, if you are in a state of ketosis, using ketones for fuel, can you keep the same energy levels mentally/physically vs. glucose?
My goals are to maybe lose about 10 lbs of fat, gain another 5 lbs in lean muscle, and have a positive mood and outlook mentally. Do you see any flaw in this if I had my body in ketosis or using ketones for energy instead of glucose? Is it arguably better to use ketones for fuel?
