This is something I WISH I would have had access to back back I first started doing low-carb eating, way back in 1992.
I was 19 years old at the time, and had been training seriously for a couple of years. I had just read through Dr. Mauro DiPasquale's classic book "The Anabolic Diet"...
If you're not familiar with it, it's basically a diet of low-carb eating for 5 days then two days "off," reloading carbs over the weekend. You will be eating a lot of meat during those 5 days...
The idea was to lose fat during the week then take advantage of the insulin rebound to gain muscle mass on the weekend.
As I was reading the book, I thought to myself "Man, this diet seems stupid...how can this possibly work?"
But I kept reading because first, I like learning new things, and second, I paid 29 bucks for it (which is a lot of money for a hungry college student).
So I read the whole thing, cover to cover.
And after thinking about it for awhile, it started to make sense...like a LOT of sense.
So I tried it.
The first week was brutal.
Having been a carb-eater for my whole life up to that point, I had a really hard time making the switch to a fat-based metabolism. I would get dizzy, I was weak, I was fatigued, I didn't feel good at all.
I considered giving up.
But the book said these things could happen and it would get better with time. So I stuck with it.
The first weekend back on carbs was an incredible rush. The carbs flooded back in and I could SEE my muscles swelling up pretty much by the minute. I was hooked.
On Monday, I went back on it.
It was a bit better. I could feel my energy levels stabilizing more, but I was still relatively weak.
It took me 3 full weeks of this approach to really start feeling normal and comfortable while eating low-carb. I found the groove with low-carb eating and never looked back.
This state is known as being "fat adapted."
And honestly, after cycling low-carb eating off and on regularly for the past 27 years, I'm so "fat adapted" that I don't even notice the slightest dip in energy when I take carbs out of my diet. I barely even see a difference in my strength and endurance.
What if there was something that could help you achieve THAT level of "Fat Adaptedness" for a keto diet in just 7 SECONDS instead of 27 years?
Imagine, no dips in energy, no drops in strength, and the "pedal-to-the-metal" fat burning you get from a low-carb/keto diet.
Now granted, the research does say that low-carb and ketogenic diets don't result in any more fat burning than you get from a low-fat diet done with the same level calorie reduction.
I'll give them that...but for me, it makes a BIG difference in how hungry I get while getting into that caloric deficit. I eat low-carb and I don't get hungry...my energy stays stable...and the process of fat-burning is just EASIER.
So what IS that thing you can do in 7 seconds to make the Keto Diet easier?
In 7 seconds, you can pour a few capsules of this supplement into your hand and swallow them. It's that simple.
It's a supplement specifically designed to make the process of fat digestion and fat-burning more efficient for your body.
1. It helps break down the fat you eat into tiny fatty acids.
2. It then assists in the transport of those fatty acids to your liver and your mitochondria so that you can burn them up at an accelerated rate.
It's called kApex, made by the same guys who created Mass Zymes and P3-OM.
They approached me a few months back about giving their formula a test run.
In fact, one of the guys who does marketing for the company actually used my "Metabolic Surge - Rapid Fat Loss" program (which uses a carb-cycling framework) a few years ago to get in the best shape of his life, so he knew I would be on board with testing it.
And the more I read about the mechansims and research behind the product, the more intrigued I became. I could see the potential.
Because the biggest issue most people have with low-carb and keto eating is that low-energy feeling (even nauseous feeling) you get while you're waiting for your cellular machinery to develop to the point where you're "fat adapted."
This can be quick for some people or it can take WEEKS for some people.
You take a few capsules with a fat-containing meal (and/or first thing in the morning on an empty stomach) and KABLAMMO.
I'm "fat adapted" and have been for years, and I noticed a BIG difference in energy from the very first dose.
I also take it on days I'm doing Intermittent Fasting and I have NO dip in energy, as I normally would towards the afternoon. It's awesome.
If you're serious about keto or low-carb eating, this is absolutely worth taking.
Because while I was intrigued about the products' potential, I was actually quite skeptical going in that I would feel any difference.
I've been "fat adapted" for so long, I figured I was about maxed out in that department.
How wrong I was.
It's not like a caffeine rush or anything like...I just feel more energized.
It's crazy but I'm even finding it makes functioning in the morning easier. I take 4 capsules immediately after I wake up, empty stomach with a glass of water.
I'm not a morning person and right now, because it's so hot in the Chicago area, I'm having to get up really early to get my dogs walked before the temperature gets too high for them (a Malamute and a Chow Chow...lots of fur).
Normally, I'd be dragging (both during the morning and for the rest of the day). I'm finding that not only can I get them walked, I'm more alert the rest of the day as well.
I'm a believer.
Honestly, even if you're not, you could take it just for the energy-boosting and fat-digestion benefits.
