Part 2 of my day in the life experiments (here is part 1). This was a much shorter experiment, and looking back I think I was mainly interested in seeing how a bulletproof coffee (upgraded coffee + grassfed butter + Upgraded MCT oil) would effect my ketones. At least in this case, it looks like it will raise them by 0.1 – 0.2 mmol in the 1-2 hrs immediately after ingestion.
Can I exclude normal ketone variation from this? Nope, but I imagine the more I test it, preferably at various times of days, the more the answer will become clear… but at this point I’m not sure this is something worth testing. I was just curious and at this point… my curiosity is satisfied.
It was interesting for me to see that the ketonix would register moderate and then high within 15 minutes apart for blood ketone readings that were only 0.1 mmol apart.
