Just take it an hour before you want to work out and enjoy a nice boost as you step into the gym.

I’ve used Perfect Keto Ketone Base powder for years and love the effects. I’m so excited that the same product I’ve come to rely on now comes in a convenient and mess free capsule.

Just Thrive Probiotics


Let’s talk about Gut Health!

When I decided to switch to a Ketogenic Lifestyle, I was hoping to reduce the inflammation in my body. I was on a mission to boost my immune system and reduce the symptoms of my autoimmune conditions.

Gut health is a big focus for me because I know how tied it is to my overall health. I started using Just Thrive probiotics and noticed a big difference in my gut’s overall happiness within days.

As you probably know our GI tract houses bacteria that contribute to more than just digestion. These beneficial bacteria help our bodies digest food and absorb nutrients, produce vitamins and vital nutrients, stimulate healthy immune function, destroy disease-causing microbes, promote healthy skin, and boost our mood and brainpower.

Pretty much everyone I know has some sort of GI issue. Environmental toxins, antibiotics, stress, and many other factors can decrease the amount of healthy bacteria in our bodies causing an imbalance.

This is where probiotics come in.


Probiotics are spores of good bacteria that occur naturally in foods or can be taken as a supplement to get your gut balanced. Foods like Yogurt, Kimchi, and Kombucha have natural occurring probiotics. But if you have a bacterial imbalance, a probiotic supplement is your best bet.

I’ve recently discovered the brand Just Thrive. Their probiotics have a better survivability than those found in yogurt and other brands. This means that the good bacteria will stay alive long enough to get all the way into your GI tract where it can do the most good. Their products are vegan and Keto friendly. And they have a 100% money back guarantee. Just Thrive probiotics contains a unique blend of four probiotic spores that have been strategically designed to give you the most health benefits.

Get Exogenous Ketones with Perfect Keto Base

Need a little extra boost?

Try adding Perfect Keto's Base to your routine. This exogenous ketone base increases energy and helps you become fat adapted.

Exogenous Ketones are basically like Ketone freebies. They are an amazing fuel source that replicates the natural effect of the ketogenic diet in your body by giving your body ketones to burn.

This helps your body transition in to Ketosis and gives your brain extra fuel leading to a boost in energy and overall mood.

It was developed by the folks over at Perfect Keto for people who are already fat adapted and for people who are just starting out. It can be used through out the day to help raise your blood ketone levels.

In this video below, Perfect Keto’s founder Dr. Anthony Gustin talks about the benefits of adding Keto Base to your daily routine.


I love to use Perfect Keto Base in my morning coffee. The salted caramel flavor is my favorite. You can also add Keto Base to a pre-workout smoothie for added energy throughout the day.

Perfect Keto base also helps reduce carb cravings when you are first starting out on keto. Mix up a little ketone base in your favorite milk. It tastes delicious and will actually help you towards your goal of being fully fat adapted. (If consumed too late in the day, Exogenous Ketones may affect sleep- it is brain fuel after all )

Perfect Keto’s Ketone Base also comes in individual serving packets. They are great for traveling or to keep in your desk. Perfect Keto Base comes in five flavors: Chocolate, Coffee, Salted Caramel, Vanilla, and Peaches and Cream. The single packets are also a great way to try out a new flavor without having to commit to an entire tub.

What is Krill Oil, and is it good for you?

As you know, the folks at Perfect Keto offer 20% off to anyone who uses the code KETOINTHECITY. They recently introduced a new supplement called Krill Oil. But before I gave it my endorsement, I had to figure out what in the heck it was!!!

Aren’t Krill the little animals that whales eat?

Yes They are!

As it turns out Krill Oil is a Fish Oil alternative. Most people take fish oil for the Omega 3 fatty acids. Our body does not make Omega 3 and has to get it from our diet. The Benefits of Omega 3 are:

  • Brain Health and Development

  • Reduced Risk of Heart Disease

  • Reduced Inflammation

  • Helps Build Lean Muscle Mass

Fish Oil is derived from fatty fish. “Most fatty fish used to produce fish oil do not produce omega-3 fatty acids, but instead, accumulate omega-3s as a result of consuming microalgae or smaller fish rich in omega-3 fatty acids.” (Perfect Keto)

Krill Oil is different. The Fatty Acids found in Krill are structured differently and have been found to work with you body better. In addition to really high levels of Omega 3, Krill oil also conains other healthy fatty acids, antioxidants, and vitamins A, E, B12, and Folate.

Krill Oil can also be more sustainably harvested than Fish Oil. It doesn’t contribute to overfishing.

Here’s my take away. If you aren’t getting enough Omega 3 in your diet and would like to see some of the benefits of adding a supplement to your daily routine, try out Krill Oil!

Remember, supplements take some time to start working. So be patient and give it about 6 weeks. Also don’t forget to use the code KETOINTHECITY at check out to get 20% off your entire Perfect Keto Order.

Why You Might Want to Add Whey Protein to your Keto Lifestyle

At first on a Ketogenic Diet, we are so focused on cutting carbs and getting fat adapted that we often forget about the other macro that is essential to a healthy life, Protein!

Depending on your goals and your activity levels, you might want more or less protein in your Ketogenic Diet, but no matter how many grams of protein you are consuming it is important that you get it from the best possible sources. Healthy Protein is an essential part of the Ketogenic Lifestyle.

As always, I recommend trying to balance your macros with fresh whole foods first by adding more grass-fed beef and Wild Caught Salmon to your diet. But if you are still having a hard time getting enough protein, Perfect Keto’s new Whey Protein might be the way to go.

Whey Protein isn’t just for young dudes trying to bulk up. It actually helps build lean muscle mass. That lean muscle mass boost your metabolism. Studies have shown that supplementing a Keto diet with Whey Protein can help you maintain muscle as you loose fat. Read more about that science here!

Perfect Keto is launching a new Whey Protein and I get to be one of the first to tell you about it! It comes in three flavors Chocolate, Vanilla, and unflavored.

Whey Protein is the most popular type of protein powder out there. That being said, it is extremely important that you find the cleanest most Keto Healthy Whey Powder you can. Perfect Keto’s Chocolate Whey Powder has only these ingredients: Whey protein isolate (90%) from grass-fed dairy, MCT oil powder, cocoa powder, sea salt, stevia leaf extract, gum acacia.

This whey protein can be mixed into smoothies and shakes, mixed with Perfect Keto Nut Butter to make protein fat bombs, and baked into Keto Treats. Enjoy it any time of day for a filling and delicious meal!
