just wanted to clear something up that has me thinking.....

alright, so when your on a keto diet, the byproduct of burned fat is ketones. (am I right so far?)

so if your on a balanced 40/40/20 diet (as an example) is the byproduct of burned fat still ketones ?

ketones are produced from fat in the absence of carbs (glucose). this has to do more with brain food than muscle fuel.

i didn't think so....

I only ask because my urine has been smelling like keto urine (have been on keto before) even though I'm on a balanced diet.

many.

I would say about 1000 cals from carbs, there's absolutely no possibility of ketosis....

it's more likely I'm just a smelly bastard...

well - the first step in overcoming a problem is admitting you have one.
