How do you know if you’re following the ketogenic diet or intermittent fasting properly?

You might feel the subjective benefits of ketosis, but quantitatively measuring ketone levels is always the most accurate (via breath, blood, or urine). Blood testing has been the standard for academic literature.

However, practically speaking, many people aren’t going to be pricking their finger for blood to check if they’re in ketosis.

Keyto is aiming to make the ketogenic diet more accessible through a breath meter device & phone app. Dr. Ethan Weiss, the founder of Keyto, hopes to fill that gap with the right balance of accessibility and science. Dr. Weiss, who is also a cardiologist and professor at the UCSF, is our guest this week.

In this episode, you'll discover:

  • The ketogenic diet as a viable option for improving metabolic and cardiovascular health
  • Best practices to determine risk-factor for developing cardiovascular disease
  • The Keyto device & overall mission: Consideration of tracking ketones via acetone & how they aim to drive positive behavioral change
