What is a Nutritional Ketosis Diet? []

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fuelling brain function. However, if there is very little carbohydrate in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. This elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood is a state known as ketosis.

Now With Moar (more) Ketones

A few weeks ago I received a calcium ketone salt in powdered form to test. The BHOB dosage per serving is identical to KetoForce.

I took 1 serving with 1 cup of water 15 min before morning exercise. I was otherwise fasted since 3PM the day before. Exercise was 1 hour long of either indoor cycling, crossfit, or olympic lifting practice.

For cycling I exercised at the same perceived effort as normal but at the end my average power up up 10 watts.
For crossfit I used the same weights and repetitions as normal. My breathing was much easier than normal. The limiting factor was muscle fatigue not cardio.
For olympic lifting I used the same reps and repetitions as normal. My breathing was much easier than normal. The limiting factor was muscle fatigue not cardio. Perhaps I had slightly more focused attention.

I did 3 sessions of each type of exercise. I did do some Ketonix measurements, but I didn't do any blood ketone measurements.

At first I thought that the taste was spectacular. However, for the first few times I took KetoCaNa I got a little bit of a queezy feeling about 20 min after ingestion. I then started to dislike the flavor as I associated it with the queezyness even though I stopped feeling it after the first few days. I took a week break from KetoCaNa and when I came back to it I once again thought it tasted pretty good.

I think that this would make a good addition to a race day nutrition mix.


  1. What is enhanced physical and 'metal' performance? I would be concerned about any product that cannot get the outside of the packaging correct. Get the product tested to make sure it is what it says it is.

  2. Jenny, the Run Keto guys get our test run of the product with a test label. I have no doubt however that if you are a heavy metal guitarist then it would improve "Metal" Performance as well. Our proof reader misses things sometimes but our Mass Spectrometer does not. We have one and we test in house, something most supplement companies cannot do. Sorry for the typo but our product contains what the label states. Regarding the new packaging you can find it here!prettyPhoto

    Also regarding the taste, we took feedback and have adjusted the flavor down a bit. I liked it but it was a bit intensene for some. Any questions feel free to ask

  3. I have tried the Keto-OS product from pruvit and it has helped me immeasurably. I run marathon and it gives me tremendous noticeable smooth excess energy while running and reduces inflammation so that my recovery is faster and better. My joints don’t hurt as well now. My mood is amazing – it has helped me with being more happy and getting rid of the winter blues! I am sharper and more engaged and motivated in life and at work. The taste is great and I don't find problems with gi. I use the keto max maui punch for running as it is the highest amounts of ketones available. I use the other flavours daily in combination with high fat and low carb diet. I am not in nutritional ketosis however. I loved the product so much i got into the promotion side. Let the product do the talking!! or if you want to check it out more. Brian
