Our Brain and muscle love Ketones and function well on them. Did you know that medical science is developing a 'Ketone' product since Ketones have been shown to improve cognitive function and memory. So why not feed our bodies the Ketones it craves and needs?
Also, did you know not all normal thyroid tests mean all is well with your metabolism? Stalled weight loss may be a Thyroid issue. Even if you are certain your thyroid function testing is normal, it may not be right for you and you may benefit with a simple change to move your TSH to 1.0. Your primary care physician can help you do this. It has been proven most people feel better at a TSH of 1. If your over 35 you may noticed a metabolic change in your body. As we age the conversion of T4 to T3 does not happen consistently, leaving your metabolism with many low T3 levels, the active form of thyroid, resulting in a feeling of fatigue, poor concentration, irregular bowel activity and inability to get to your healthy weight. You can start by taking your morning basal temperature daily and record. it, graft them if you wish. If your basal temperatures are consistently low you will benefit from biological thyroid, which has T3 in it available for use immediately. This helps those that are poor converters of T4 to T3. People over sixty begin to slow down in their ability to make this conversion. For many people the conversion slows at an earlier age.
