What’s the Point?

Video Log


Stories from the John Muir Trail

I got an email from a guy the other day asking how often I was in ketosis.

I said "I don't know."

I didn't hear back from him but I'm sure he was like "What do you mean you don't know? Aren't you measuring your ketones?"

No, I don't measure them. I never have.

You see, being in ketosis is not the point for me. I don't care.

I just want to be healthy and fit so I can do things I enjoy and live long enough to create some cool memories with my kids and their kids.

If you poke around keto blogs and forums you'll hear everyone obsessively listing their ketone levels and back-slapping each other for the highest reading.

Let me be clear. Being in nutritional ketosis is fine, actually it is good. It's healthy and you'll certainly be burning stored fat along with the ketones.

But you don't have to achieve ketosis to lose fat.

I'm sure I go in and out of ketosis all the time. I just don't measure it because, again, for me, that's not the point of why I eat what I eat and how and when I exercise.

I care about other things, more practical things.

Seth Sponsler gets it. He knows what is important.

I've never met Seth in person but I know a few things about him:

  1. He's a good father (which is the point)
  2. He's an adventurer and won't give up just 'cause he's over 50
  3. He's a fun guy
  4. I'm sure he's honest and trustworthy
  5. He doesn't measure his daily ketones (he may but I doubt it)
  6. I could be friends with him if we lived in proximity to one another
Check out Seth's adventure video and be inspired.

Then be like Seth. Make great memories.

That's the point isn't it?
