Anyone drinking Ketones?



Recommended Posts

If your following low carb why are you drinking ketones?

Drinking ketones does nothing but make your pee test positive for ketosis. But if you ate a turn of carbs then drank it sure your pee will show ketosis. But that's because you've just drank ketones. Your not in real fat burning mode ketosis. All you've done is trick your pee to test positive but its not doing anything for your weight loss. And your getting back in real ketosis in the same amount of time.

Why not just trust your plan without drinking that? You don't need any extra drinks to help you succeed. You've have your procedure.

This drinking keotones fad is one of the worst things I have seen in a long time. It is just marketing and junk science.

Just eat right. You don't need to drink keotones. Don't let people rip you off.

Low carbing is all you need if that is your method of losing weight.

How do people get sucked back into fad diets after going through such a big procedure? You do not even have to do even a 2 second research to come up with the fact drinking ketones is a load of crap. So what research is people doing honestly? I am not trying to be harsh to the OP but just curious.

Not bashing OP but just in general

@dreamingsmall

People that treat WLS like another diet, keeping falling into the same pitfalls. If WLS is a complete lifestyle change for someone, this doesn't seem to happen as often.

People who regain get desperate. There is a lot of pressure to maintain weight loss, and when people regain they feel a lot of pressure. Especially people that decide to be WLS poster children.

Science education in America sucks. I do not see as many people in foreign countries with such poor understanding of science and nutrition. Like the 2 guys that tried to debate me on how much a pound of muscle weighs. :lol::lol:

I saw that thread, I left pretty quickly it was getting silly. I am wondering if OP is selling this product as she has just returned to this forum and her only 3 posts is mentioning drinking ketones, I get when someones excited about something new.. But not that excited lol.

Wow you ladies are harsh. To assume is to assume wrong. No I'm not selling the product but I'm seeing great results so no need to lash out at those who are. I'm down 25lbs in 2.5 months and feel great, which I think is pretty awesome. I'm 10 years post op and post 2 babies back to back with a total unfill from csection swelling. I by no means have gained all my weight back but like many gained with having children and needed a refocus hence my return. Perhaps you will understand 10 years post op. I was curious if there was anyone interested in what I'm interested in, you know a community.

Non ones harsh. The ketone drink isn't causing the weight loss the low carb Is the drink does nothing you can't argue with fact that all the drink is make your pee positive. It doesn't make you go into ketosis after eating carbs lol it just says your pee is positive. But you are not in real fat burning ketosis. What is harsh about the facts? If you want to drink for nothing go ahead. But I did ask if your low carb why do you need the drink? The drink doesn't cause weight loss the low carb diet did. I didn't assume I said I'm wondering if you sell the product. What was the assumption there. Your lucky you gotba response stating the facts. Most people know its its rubbish but decided not to respond. We tried to help and got called harsh. I can see why others didn't bother.

Who's lashing out lol ? Why would we lash out ? All ketone drinks do is make wee positive. Nothing else contributing to weight loss. If you drink it without changing your eating habits you wont lose weight. Just carry on doing low carb.

Its a dangerous slidy slope trying all these drinks to get on track.

You came here to refocuse and even though I'm in the hospital in trying to help you. So dont be rude just because we be rude because we are being honest that if you did two seconds of research you'd see what your drinking is rubbish.

Protein first. And leafy non starchy veggies will have you losing weight faster.

I know you had a band. But for a sleep. I eat 4 ounces at a time.

People try to help you and you acuse them of lashint out because you lost weight lol ? Makes non sense at all we are all losing weight.

This is my last response as I'm exhausted on a lot of meds and won't be insulted for trying to tell you that weight loss was done by you not that use less drink.

So actually, "Nahmy" (Normy the cheers guy as said by Cliff Claven), aside from using ketones after WLS--it's a little known fact that some of the cutting edge research being done on cancer and dietary intervention today is in the area of the application of a ketogenic diet and supplementation with external sources of ketones. Turns out it may not be "full of gump" or hocus pocus. :) ;) This researcher, Dr. Dominic D'Agostino is the one of the shiznits in the keto/low carb community.

What supplement are you using? To do it properly you need to have a combination of BHB salts and MCT (medium-chain triglyceride). This is why a lot of people who are doing a ketogenci coffee drink bulletproof coffee. Look up Dominic D'Agostino, he is the ketosis guru and many of the supplements on the market are actually his.

There are dickholes on this app now. Life is life and sometimes it plain sucks. Everybody tries to survive differently. Not a big fan now that all these assholes are in here acting like they havent touched a Kit Kat or a potato chip or God forbid ate something that contained sugar....

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
