The word keto comes from ketones
Ketones are made from fat, not protein, not carbs only fat
A keto diet typically has a 70% fat 30% carb/protein macro mix
Proteins do not make ketones they make glucose, the opposite of the goal of a keto diet
There is no such thing as Keto protein powder
What's worse is that a protein in powdered form spikes insulin much more than protein in other forms
Adding fat (mct's or otherwise) to a protein powder does not make the protein convert to ketones - protein converts to glucose always
Mct's convert to quick fuel, they act like a carb
Eating glucose in any form, ketones, mct's or fats will always prevent the body from using body fat because it takes work to break down body fat and any other readily available fuel source will be used before body fat
water, glycogen, muscle, and waste are all weight and none of them are fat
The popular keto phrase fat for fuel should be body fat for fuel as eating fat does not make tyou loose body fat. The opposite actually. I'm not saying you can't loose fat opn a keto diet. It is a good tool but the supplement companies and health practitioners pushing this as a one size fits all diet are just making money.
A keto diet done unintelligently will make you loose weight and maintain fat through fat consumption
Anyone who incorporates intermittent fasting will target body fat
Fake health companies can't make money off fasting but they can make money off things like "keto protein" playing on the ignorance of the population
the sad thing....it works
there is no such thing as "keto protein" just glucose protein because that what all protein converts to in the same way there is no such thing as keto carbs because they don't convert to ketones either.
