So my keto experiment has come to an end after 50 days, mainly because it is not ideal for my current goal, which I’ll explain in more detail soon. However it was a pretty fascinating experience, and I’d always recommend trying new things and keeping an open mind. There’s a lot of misconceptions and lesser known benefits to each diet strategy, keep experimenting until you find what works best for you.

There’s a lot of dogmatic thinking out there which can easily stop you finding better solutions. Question everything!

I’m by no means the Keto expert and this is obviously an experiment of one person, but I have done a lot of research and tracked many parameters including:

  • Ketone levels

  • Macros / Calories

  • Bodyweight

  • Body Fat %

  • Gym performance

  • Mental performance

  • Sleep (using Oura ring)

  • HRV

  • Neurotransmitters (using Braverman test)

I’ll write a completely unbiased post detailing the effects of the Ketogenic diet on the following areas:

  • Training

  • Body composition

  • Health

  • Nutrition

  • Lifestyle

  • Pros and Cons summary

If you’re interested in the Ketogenic diet and want to know how I got on in any other areas than don’t hesitate to ask, and I’ll do my best to answer.

Just some background, I was already pretty well fat adapted before starting keto as I regularly do 24 hours fasts (8pm to 8pm etc..) and as such had an easier and quicker time transitioning into ketosis than the average person. The posts will be mainly written from the point of view of someone who is already fit, healthy and looking to squeeze the last few health benefits out.
