    Keto Drink Mix

    Anyone using keto drink mix before or during rides?

    KetoCaNa for example.

    I am not. I don't think your body can use Ketones for glycolitic activity even if exogenous? So, only makes sense if not producing enough ketones. If in ketosis, I just don't see it. Don't need exogenous source of energy for low level workouts.

    Benefits I have read are easing transition into ketosis.

    That said, I went from a winter of lifting weights at sub 100 grams carb (total, weighing and measuring food; I think people grossly underestimate their carbs) and have eased back up to 200-300 grams. Training at any level of intensity beyond minimal was just not there.

    I take Ucann Superstarch pre-ride (1-2 hrs on trainer) and cannot say I notice anything. I started taking it concurrently with bumping up carbs. So I feel better, but not sure if it is the Superstarch or general increase in carb; or settling back into a training plan.
