BCAAS: Take 2 scoops during or post exercise. These help tremendously with muscle recovery.
Ketone BHB Salts (exogenous ketones): These are optional for pre-exercise energy. You can take one scoop 15-minutes before exercise. These are exogenous ketones-your body will produce ketones but this gives you extra in the beginning.
Nuun- this electrolyte tan has zero sugar and is available Sprouts
keto/low carb specific:
Electrolyte Supplement/Keto Vitals: Electrolyte balance is crucial. Drink 1-2 cups of bone broth/day and/or supplement with plenty of pink Himalayan sea salt (sodium, potassium, and magnesium). Take 2 Keto Vitals/day as an insurance policy. If you have any headaches or muscle cramps, we will talk about adding more. If you have runny stool, let me know- it is likely Mg.
MCT Powder: Powder is easier on the gastro system that MCT oil. I recommend starting with the powder. It also travels easily in baggies. If you want portable convenience, order the Fat Coffee Packs below instead of MCT powder.
Blood Ketone Meter: (this is optional but allows you to test your blood ketone levels). You can also use Ketone Urine Strips but note: they only work in the beginning as your body is becoming fat adapted.
