A Device to Tell Keto Dieters When They’re in Ketosis?
(audience clapping) When it comes to diets, it’s hard to find one hotter right now than the ketogenic diet. It’s popularity has lead to the keto breathalyzer, called the Keto. Why didn’t we think of this? Keto is such a big fad, it’s almost like a game, like, “Well I’m in ketosis.” Are you in ketosis? Well I think that’s the whole idea. Guess how much it costs? How much? $100. Yeah so, what it does reportedly tells you whether or not you’re in ketosis. If you’re doing your keto diet correctly, and you’re really limiting your carbs, don’t you think you would just be in ketosis, like do you really need this? (talks over Nita) Here’s the deal. I am not a big believer in this concept, mainly because I have always, always attested the fact that I think you need to have a positive relationship with food. And I am not big believer in highly, highly limiting diets over long-term, So I understand why someone would try it and be interested in this. But the other thing, if you’re in ketosis, your body will start creating these ketone bodies, and you smell your breath, a lot of times you can smell if you’re in ketosis. It’s interesting because, I’m passionate about this partially because it’s one of the ways, if someone is in diabetic ketoacidosis, for instance, type 1 diabetics will go into diabetic ketoacidosis, and sometimes you will smell that on their breath. How do you describe that sort of, that sweet, sweet… Sweet, but something else. Like sweet acetone. Like sweet alcohol. Yeah and that’s how you can symptomatically gauge. I think that this is probably going to sell in certain circles. It will. I mean dip-sticking your urine is cheaper. (audience laughing) It’s a little messier. It’s a little messier. (talks over others) Hey, I’m with you. My whole point was I think there are going to be people out there that get this. Yeah, just because it’s gonna be cool, and trendy. But even if you eat a bunch of carbs and you do it, then it’s not going to register. You do this, people are going to think you’re vaping. (audience laughing)
Well that’s, yeah. That’s true. It is! One more device through the parents, “Wait a minute, what’s going on over there?” “I swear, mom. “I’m just trying to see if I’m in ketosis.” (laughs) I don’t know, I don’t think it’s necessary. I don’t think it’s a necessary device. I could not agree more. I just think people need to be a little bit cautious with this craze. We concur doctor. When people are starting to make breathalyzers for it, it’s when we all need to take a deep breath… I’ve just seen way too many devices on this stage today, are trendy as can be. Could be something for a diabetic, because if their insulin levels aren’t right, they’re not processing
And hey again, you wanna buy it? Go for it. Go for it. If you’re doing the keto diet and you wanna buy it, go for it. You know what we’re gonna do? What are we gonna do?
Go on a break? We’re going to go to commercial break.
