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.

how many grams of carbs are u eating daily?

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...
