Are you just getting started taking Pruvit’s KETO-OS? If so, here are some tips and guidelines to go by, as well as a few things to expect.
Above all, don’t rush into making extreme changes. There’s no need to make drastic dietary changes. Don’t skip meals that you would normally eat. You can certainly expect reduced cravings, which will help you eat less if that is one of your goals. But eat real food! If you have a sensitive stomach you might want to start off with a half-dose for the first couple days. Drink plenty of water, which your body needs anyway.
Don’t overdo exercise. You are probably going to feel extra sustained energy since the ketones in KETO-OS are used by your body as energy without the need for insulin (this has HUGE implications, by the way!). But don’t rush right into an intense workout that your body isn’t used to.
Understand that KETO-OS is an external fuel source. When we eat food, our body breaks that down into glucose, and insulin, produced by the pancreas, gets the glucose into your cells for energy. Ketones are an external food source just like food, but ketones are almost immediate energy. It’s not stored because it doesn’t require insulin. This is real energy, not a stimulant. Ketones have a caloric value (roughly 4 to 66 calories per gram) just like fat, carbs and proteins.
So, we’ve already talked about the appetite suppressant benefits. If one of your issues is cravings, pay attention to your body and notice when you are and are not hungry after taking KETO-OS. Many people notice a significant increase in mental clarity. Some describe it as reduced fogginess, increased alertness or focus.
Also pay attention to your energy level. For a few days you might want to drink KETO-OS at different times, just to test when you feel like you need the extra energy. Everyone is different. Listen to your body and just ease it into your routine.
KETO-OS is also great for preserving muscle while you are reducing calories and if you are reducing carbs and sugar. The idea is to burn fat, not muscle. KETO-OS is a terrific aid in achieving a ketogenic-type diet that is high on fat and low on carbs. But please don’t feel like you have to jump right into a change like that. Ease into it. Start simple. Use it where you think it fits best.
When throughout your day do you need energy? When do you need to curb your cravings? Pay attention to your body!
