KetoHK gave me a sample of their Keto OS formula. They were also very informative and guided me through exactly how to take it and what to expect.
- Take it in the morning as it has caffeine
- Take it with 500ml of water
- Drink it slow: 30min
- Your stomach will feel funny especially if you’re not used to ketones
My other suggestions are to avoid taking your morning cup of joe because you will feel the gradual kick and you may not need the extra caffeine and to eat 30min after you finish Keto OS. The reason why I say that is because it generally takes, on average, 30min for stuff to move through your stomach. And with any change to your diet, it’s best to do a slow introduction.
I was surprised at the colour because it looks like a yogurt drink whereas it’s chocolate flavoured so I expected a deep brown colour! But hey, less colouring.
Overall – it’s easy to drink – it tastes like a less thick version of a chocolate protein shake. You do have to remember to keep stirring it because the supplement sinks to the bottom.
If you aren’t used to the chocolate taste in protein shakes, you may not be used to the taste.
What really surprised me was how focused I was for the entire morning. It felt like I was on Red Bull. I drank it at 8:40AM and by lunchtime, I was still quite alert. The feeling did fade a while after lunch. It also kept me quite full. I actually didn’t feel hungry until around 11AM. If you have a light breakfast with it, it can take you straight to lunch without snacking.
Even though my body has gone through cycles of ketosis before through my training, this time, I felt less tired and my body didn’t seem to reject it because I wasn’t trying to force ketosis through carb restriction.
Your digestion system will feel different. Mine felt like it was working harder so there were some grumbles in the morning but no bloating.
Let’s see what the effects are tomorrow.
