How tracking ketones can help you reach your fitness goals

A ketogenic diet allows your body to enter ketosis, its natural fat-burning state. If you’re combining a keto diet with regular exercise, whether that’s high endurance exercise like running, or high intensity exercise like weightlifting, it’s important to closely monitor your body’s level of ketosis:

By tracking your ketones with KETOSCAN you can:

  • Ensure your body’s rate of fat burning matches your fitness goals
  • Prevent your body entering a dangerous level of ketosis
  • Track exercise and ketone results to find the most effective workout for your body
  • Ensure you have access to the right type of energy for your sport

Keto diet and athletic performance

Athletes’ bodies endure high levels of stress. With intense training constantly pushing the body to its limits, most professional or competing sportspeople follow specialist dietary plans which ensure that their bodies can recover from high stress levels and reach peak performance when it matters the most. 

Originally developed as a nutrition plan for sufferers of drug-resistant epilepsy, the high protein and fat, low-carb ketogenic diet has become incredibly popular in recent years, appealing to a huge range of people, from those wanting to lose weight or control type-2 diabetes, to gym-goers looking to promote muscle growth and fat loss. 

“KETOSCAN Mini is the most accurate ketone analyser on the market, owing to its replaceable electrochemical cartridge. With Bluetooth connectivity to the KETOSCAN App, you can track readings instantly and upload photos of meals and progress. Data syncs with iOS Health, Google Fit and Samsung Health.”

Ketone testing for endurance exercise

The effect of a ketogenic diet can be beneficial for endurance sports and long-duration events like jogging, cycling and running.

After an adaptation period, the keto diet can help to prevent burnout – when the body runs out of glucose. On a ketogenic diet, the body becomes adapted to burning ketones (released from the body’s fat stores) for energy, rather than glucose from carbohydrates.

This unlocks access to your body’s fat stores, containing over 80,000 calories. This can help the body to sustain energy levels for long periods of time and decrease the amount of refuels needed during an event like a marathon.

To prevent energy fluctuations and disruptions to training, it is essential for anyone following a ketogenic diet plan to track their ketone levels. Using Ketoscan Mini or the Ketoscan Lite ensures you can do this in the most accurately and effective way, with no need to test your blood or urine.

Ketone tracking and exercise

Ketone tracking for high intensity exercise

A recent study by St Louis University found that the keto diet worsened performance for athletes taking part in high intensity, low duration sports – such as sprinting and weightlifting, who traditionally use carbohydrates to access the quick energy they need for their event.

For those practicing weight training or competing in high-intensity, short duration sports, it can be useful to check your ketone levels to make sure you are not in ketosis – particularly if your nutrition plan is already relatively low in carbohydrates, because eating this way long-term can cause your body to go into early-stage ketosis without you realising.

When performance is so linked to nutrition, it’s vital for athletes to carefully monitor any nutritional changes. Anyone wanting to make changes to their diet should consult a doctor before beginning any new dietary plan.
