Chad: 00:06 So we're getting a lot of questions regarding the proper way to live life in ketosis. We have you covered in our midweek mini series called Sunday supps. Every Sunday we have a quick, simple supplemental episode where we answer your questions on all things Keto. So our question today comes from Kelly and Kelly asks, I've been seeing keto Diet pills popping up everywhere. What are those and what are they trying to sell? Have you seen these Eric?
Eric: 00:33 Yeah, I'm getting lots of questions, uh, from our listeners and you know, I've uh, yeah, I knew it was going to come. I knew it was coming because you remember we have the exotic ketones Beta. I'd actually be the molecule. We have those ketone esters which are more pure. We had the ketone salts. Okay. And I even take us a year or so ago, I kept saying, wait till all these diet pill people just figure a way to say, hey, let's burn fat. Okay. Cause everybody knows ketosis. keto is burning fat. And sure enough, I remember I had mentioned to you that maybe will I have to do a podcast on this and really dive deep into it. Um, but yeah, there it's out there. In fact, I looked up on the Google trends and like for this year, since January when everybody made their resolutions to, um, lose weight, uh, the couple of them were like the, I think it was a rebel in keto. Burn was like at breakout, I mean the slim fast keto. Then there's the, um, the popular one that someone's had been asking me about is a cue to burn extreme, uh, that took off keto advanced weight loss pills. They're out there. Um, so they're really, you know, they're going to start capitalizing on this. And so what the thing you need to be aware of in Ketosis, we produce our own beta.
Eric: 01:59 Okay. And we do that by burning our own fat being delivered. You know, fatty acid been delivered to the liver to produce ketones Beta. So that's, you know, that's the precursor is your own, your own fatty acids. What they're doing here is they're throwing in some Beta salts, okay? Ketone salts. It could be calcium, magnesium and sodium salts. Um, so they are getting you a little bit of Beta. But remember when you take a true exotic in his ketone, most of the time it's 11 grams, okay? 11,000 milligrams. But I looked at these, uh, just a little while back and they're pushing these pills for two capsules a day, 700 milligrams. So you're really getting nothing. So, and when you take them and then air mixing some stimulants in them. So you're going to get a little buzz, a little push, a little pop, and you're going to have 700 milligrams of Beta ketones. And they have some MCT in there too. But that's what you're going to burn. Your body's going to use that as an energy source before your own fatty acids as an energy source. So what's the point there? It really is, unless you just need a little energy, okay? Which you'll get a little beta and a little MCT in a little, you know, pop from the stimulant. It might give you a little energy, but as far as a fat burner, no, no, not at all. I mean, they say, well this could be a catalyst to initiate your fat burning, no calorie restriction and lower insulin is your catalyst for that. So I guess I could go on and on, but let's, let me do a podcast on this and I think I'll take it really a little bit deeper if you want me to do well, that's interesting.
Chad: 03:51 I haven't even heard of these yet, but it sounds like a lot of people are running across them.
Eric: 03:56 Yeah. It's, you know, this, they're just in keto. Pills was a big search earlier in the year, just keto pills. And so people are, you know, we're back to looking for the easy and you know, a way to do it. Okay. Just take a pill and you're, you're good to go. You know, diet pills are huge and I'm afraid something is great as Keto going to bring back a lot of that.
Chad: 04:24 Yeah. Well, pills for everything is huge, right? I mean that's kind of our mo, um, in this specifically in our western culture is there's a lot of lot of desire to just take a pill and be okay. Um, and not put in the hard work, not enjoy the journey and really get in tune with who we are, what our body is, the gift that it is, the amazing things that they can do when it's dealt with naturally. Um, and that's as big of a soapbox that I'm going to get on. Uh, but yeah, this is very, very interesting and I'm glad we, I'm glad we got this question cause I think it's important for people whether they choose to use it or not, just important for people to understand, you know, what, what this is and I can only assume they're probably pretty expensive.
Eric: 05:10 Yeah, they are. And yeah, there like for a bottle of 40 something bucks I a little more and then you're going to get celebrities pushing him obviously, you know, uh, as always, I just say save your money, create your own because you know it's coming from your fat. Okay. And that's the most people want to use fat as your energy, so make your own, save your money. So spend your money on bacon people. You got it. avocado and Bacon. Those two go really good. Right?
