If you had one hour to teach a friend all about ketosis, press the play button and sit back.

In previous conversations, host Geoffrey Woo has touched on many aspects of ketosis: The research that has been done, the metabolic pathways that are activated, how burning fat for energy affects physical performance, and the different interventions used to reach a state of ketosis.

This episode acts as the source of truth. Geoff and Dr. Brianna Stubbs sit down to lay down the fundamentals, look back at the history, and ponder over what the future will bring. 

In this discussion, you will discover:

  • The difference between being in a state of "ketosis" and being "ketogenic"
  • How to properly implement a ketogenic diet and the common mistakes many make
  • The specific metabolic processes your body undergoes to use ketones for the body and mind
