Ketones have been getting a lot of hype in the media of late and we wanted to explain why. Further evidence has shown that beyond fat, carbs and protein, there is a fourth (and possibly most effective) means to fuel your body.
An American company HVMN have teamed up with Oxford University and spent over $60 million on research into Ketones and how these effect the body.
So, what are Ketones?
Ketones are what the body naturally produces when it burns fat at a rapid rate. When the body has depleted levels of glycogen, it turns to using fat as fuel instead. This is where the body enters a state of ketosis and the ketones work their magic.
Our Total Solution plan works on reducing your calorie and carbohydrate intake, in order to allow your body to enter in to a state of ketosis. A lot of the food we eat day to day contains carbs; fruit, vegetables, pasta, bread, the list goes on. All of these are broken down in to glucose and then used as a source of energy.
However, when we reduce the intake of such foods and restrict the amount of carbohydrates we eat, the body turns to fat as a source of energy instead, meaning greater weight loss results. All of our Exante meal replacement products have been specifically formulated to allow you to enter a state of ketosis, when following our Total Solution plan strictly.
