Do exogenous ketones or MCT oil stop fat burning?

Is keto a possibility for wine lovers and drinkers?

Is it bad for you to keep going in and out of ketosis? Or does this mess up your metabolism?

If these questions sound familiar, it’s because they’re some of the most common ones we’ve seen from our own Perfect Keto Facebook and Instagram community.

To help put some of these common myths to rest and set the record straight, Alex Cunningham, our Head of Partnerships, joins me for another round of Q&A.

Together, we tackle 10 more of your top questions, including whether or not you can have alcohol on keto, what happens when you go in and out of ketosis, whether or not MCT oils and exogenous ketones halt fat loss, and how I ended up with food poisoning four times last year.
