As a sport parent you are always on the go.
Between work, running errands, taking care of the family, chauffeuring kids to various social events or practices & competitions you may not always be taking care of yourself as well as you should.
Have you noticed any of the following?
- Low energy level
- Inability to focus
- Weight gain
These are all a sign of a mind and body that may need some help.
Ketones may be the answer!
What are ketones?
A byproduct of your body breaking down fat for fuel are ketones. Ketones are transported through your blood stream to different parts of your body to be used as energy.
What are the benefits of ketones?
There are many benefits that include:
- Increased energy
- Increased focus/concentration
- Improved cognitive ability
- Changes in body composition (weight loss)
- Manage inflammatory issues
- And more….
By adding additional ketones into your system, is like adding a fuel booster resulting in increased focus, cognitive ability, and energy.
With a crazy family schedule it may be difficult to prioritize and focus on what needs to be done now and what needs to be done later. With the clarity provided by taking ketones, organizing your day may be that much easier.
In addition, the increased energy provided by ketones may just be what you need to get yourself over the late afternoon slump when you begin running family around town and doing errands.
The added ketones in your system also allows your body to move into a state of ketosis; a state where your body uses fat as fuel. This state of ketosis can show improvement in body composition, weight loss.
Melissa Brugh states, “I’ve just started on it [ketones] and I like the energy it gives me and also curbs my appetite mid day. I like that!”
Those individuals looking for increased weight loss can add a ketogenic diet (low carb, moderate protein, and high fat) and exercise into your daily routine.
How long do added ketones stay in your system?
Ketones are water soluble and can stay in your system between 3-6 hours. Ketones that are not absorbed into your system are eliminated through your urine.
In short, ketones can be taken as an energy booster to help you get through your day or to help you maintain focus and concentration. For those looking to loose weight, ketones with the addition of a ketogenic type diet and exercise may be the route to go.
Note From the Author:
I started using ketones because I found that my energy level wasn’t where it needed to be to keep up with my toddler and also do the work necessary to promote and expand my blog and new t-shirt company. I had trouble prioritizing projects and/or completing them because I had so many things going on.
After my first day of taking ketones, I noticed a huge difference in my energy level, in my focus/concentration, and noticed my snacking urges decreased.
I am relatively satisfied with my body weight but as I reach 45, I have noticed some weight gain in my mid-section, “Dad Bod”. I hope that with taking ketones and a small change in my dietary habits, I can hold the “Dad Bod” at bay!
