Keto Supplement MUST HAVES!

Switching to Keto is a huge life change! It requires determination and patience but it is so worth it! My goal every week is to give you the tools to make Keto Successful for you!

Some of the most useful tools in my Keto Toolbox are KETO SUPPLEMENTS! I've put together a list of my four favorite Keto Supplement that I can't live without. My four favorite Keto Supplements are all from Brands that I absolutely trust. They are made with Pure ingredients and designed with a Ketogenic Lifestyle in mind. 

Whether you are just starting Keto and looking for exogenous Ketones to help you sustain Ketosis or you are a Keto Vet looking to get more nutrients, this list is perfect for you! I love a good smoothie! These Supplements all incorporate really well into Shakes and Smoothies, but you can also add them to your morning cup of coffee or bake them into Keto Treats! 

However, you choose to use them; I hope these supplements help you feel your best on your Keto Journey.

Keto Base

Perfect Keto sells the best Exogenous Ketones around! The supplement is called Keto Base. It comes in 5 different flavors: Vanilla, Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Peach, Coffee. This powder incorporates well into Water, Coffee, Smoothies and Baked goods and tastes great.

Perfect Keto’s Keto Base contains BHB. “Beta-hydroxybutyrate (BHB) is a naturally occurring molecule called a ketone body. It is one of the main molecules that provides your body with energy in the absence of glucose.”-Perfectketo.com

It gives your body Ketones to help you get into Ketosis and give you a long lasting boost of Energy. I like to add Keto Base into my coffee in the morning to give me an energy boost and curb my hunger while Intermittent fasting. It gives you great energy before a workout or if you find yourself in an afternoon slump.

Perfect Keto just redid the formula for their Keto Base to eliminate some bitterness in the old recipe. It now tastes better than ever! If you tried Keto Base before and didn’t like it, I would encourage you to give it another shot.

MCT OIL Powder

“MCT's are a unique type of fatty acid found in coconut oil that are a much faster source of energy than most longer chain fatty acids. MCTs support mental clarity and sharpness.”

Lots of companies sell MCT Oil, but this is the only MCT Oil Powder I’ve ever found. Perfect Keto takes their premium C8 MCT Oil and puts it in powder form for more versatility. Instead of just whipping it up in your coffee, you can now bake with MCT and make creamy and delicious shakes.

The MCT Oil Powder also comes in a bunch of Flavors including regular unflavored, Vanilla, Chocolate, and Matcha. Matcha is one of my favorite flavors- it combines all of the goodness of MCT with the antioxidants and caffeine of Matcha.

MCT’s give your brain a quick boost in energy, help you think clearly and stay focused. They also keep you full longer.



Prime Protein

I have never found a protein powder with so few ingredients! Equip’s Chocolate Prime Protein has Just Grass Fed Beef Protein, Cocoa Powder, and Stevia! Are you kidding me?!!!

The Craziest Part? It tastes delicious! It is chocolatey and creamy and rich!

The grass fed beef protein has naturally occurring collagen and gelatin that keeps your body happy and your belly full!

It is so simple just 24g of Protein and nothing else! For me, this protein powder is a no brainer. If you are looking for a plant based protein powder, check out Prine Plants also made by Equip!

Micro-Greens

One of the things that we have to be mindful of when starting Keto is getting enough vitamins and minerals from Fruits Veggies!

Most Fruit has a ton of sugar! And Although I try to eat Veggies at every meal, I could still use some help. Equip Food’s Micro Greens is a powdered supplement made from 100 percent Whole Foods.

Micro Greens is a green supplement that gives you 14 servings of 22 different Fruits and Veggies in every serving.

Micro greens has no fillers or chemicals- so it has a slightly bitter taste. But it blends up really nicely into smoothies!

When you are feeling under the weather or inflamed you can double your serving for extra nutrients.

Transitioning to a Ketogenic Lifestyle is not always easy. It’s important to fill your Keto Toolbox with things that make living a Keto Lifestyle easier!

My favorite Perfect Keto Products for Summer

I was chatting with my friends over at Perfect Keto this week and they offered to let me share an exclusive discount just for Keto in the City.

Don’t know who/what Perfect Keto is?

Perfect Keto is one of my favorite brands. I’ve been using their products for years! It was founded by Dr. Anthony Gustin to make eating low-carb easier. He even has a podcast (The Keto Answers Podcast).

Perfect Keto offered to give Keto In the City an exclusive 2-day sale on all of their products. You can get 20% off of your entire purchase when you use the code KETOINTHECITY20.

Keep reading for a list of my favorite Perfect Keto Products.

My Favorite Perfect Keto Products for Summer

  1. Keto Collagen: The Perfect Keto Collagen is awesome. It is my favorite addition to summer shakes and smoothies. It adds amazing flavor (it comes in Chocolate, Vanilla, Salted Caramel, and Unflavored) and a rich texture. Perfect Keto’s Collagen is great for joints and gut health as well as skin, nails, and hair.

  2. MCT OIL POWDER: I love MCT, but a lot of times I don’t want it in an oil form. The Oil makes it difficult to add into smoothies, desserts, and baked goods without changing the recipes. I love Perfect Keto’s MCT Oil Powder because I can incorporate it into anything. It’s the same high quality MCT Oil you expect from Perfect Keto just in a powder form.

  3. Keto Base in Peach: One of my favorite summer fruits used to be Peaches. However, they are naturally extremely high in sugar and definitely not KETO! That’s why I love this Peach flavored Keto Base! I Exogenous Ketones help your body get into Ketosis and stay there. They give you easy accessible energy and get rid of brain fog. Perfect Keto Base comes in a bunch of different flavors: chocolate, Salted Caramel, Vanilla, Peach, and Coffee! The Peach flavor is my favorite for summer. I even add it to my Keto Pancake Batter for Peaches and Cream Pancakes.

Perfect Keto has a bunch of amazing supplements. Check out their pre-workout and Microgreens supplements too! You honestly can’t go wrong with Perfect Keto products!

Hurry! This sale is only available July 30-31!!

Perfect Keto's Improved Keto Bases are Here

Perfect Keto’s amazing Ketone Base just got BETTER. Today, Perfect Keto released their new base recipe. Their new exogenous ketone mix is just as effective as before but with better flavor. 

I have used the Salted Caramel and Peach flavors for years. I love the long lasting energy and easily accessible Ketones, but I always had to mix it in with some other flavored liquid like coffee or a smoothie. Last week, I got to try the new Keto Base Formula and I didn’t even need to stir it up in my coffee. This new formula tastes delicious with just water and ice!

I’m so glad that I don’t have to plan out a smoothie or a cup of coffee anymore when I want some extra Ketones. I can just stir a scoop or two of Keto Base into a glass of water. I like that I can drink this to quench my mid-morning snack cravings and be full all the way into the late afternoon when I finally get a chance to grab lunch.

 

The new Perfect Keto Base still comes in all of your favorite flavors: Chocolate, Salted Caramel, Peach, Coffee, and Vanilla. It still has the same amount of Exogenous Ketones per serving, 11.38g of BHB and no garbage ingredients. Now, It just tastes a lot better.


The folks at Perfect Keto have been kind enough to offer a 20% discount to any body who uses the code KETOINTHECITY at checkout!

 I have a feeling that this new Perfect Keto Base is going to sell out quickly. If I were you I would grab a couple tubs of your favorite flavor this week before they are gone.

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.

Perfect Keto - My Four Essentials

One of the things that is so amazing about our Keto Community is the awesome Keto Products that now exist to help you transition to and maintain a Ketogenic Lifestyle.

Yes, Switching to Keto has its challenges, but I’ve found that investing in some Keto Supplements can really help.

That’s why I’ve decided to share 4 Perfect Keto Products that are worth your while! Learn how to incorporate these 4 Perfect Keto Products into your everyday routine. 

Do you need a Ketone Base? What's the difference between MCT Oil and MCT Powder? Why and When should you take electrolytes? And what in the world are Nootropics? 

Get all of your questions answered! 


MCT OIL and MCT OIL POWDER

Hopefully by now, you’ve experienced the joy that is Fatty Coffee. If you haven’t read all about it on this recipe blog. MCT Oil in my coffee with some butter keeps me fueled well into the afternoon. It is an essential part of my Ketogenic Life.

Perfect Keto has Pure C8 MCT Oil. It is the highest quality MCT made from C8s. This is the type of MCT that won’t upset your gut.

Perfect Keto takes this amazing MCT Oil and turns it into a powder so that it is easier to incorporate into Shakes, and Baked Goods. They even make single packets so that you can carry MCT on the go.

My favorite part of Perfect Keto MCT Oil Powder is that it comes in 4 different flavors: Matcha, Salted Caramel, Vanilla, and Chocolate.


EXOGENOUS KETONE BASE

Getting your Macros calculated is the first thing to do when switching to Keto. After that the goal is to use these calculations to get your body into Ketosis- the state in which your body burns Ketones for Fuel.

Exogenous Ketones are a great way to help your body transition. Now that I am in Ketosis, I use Perfect Keto’s Ketone Base when I I’m feeling a little sluggish or need a little energy boost before or after a work out.

It’s great to add to your coffee in the morning to set yourself up for a “good Macros” day! It can also help get you back into Ketosis after a higher carb meal than you were anticipating.


NOOTROPICS

Perfect Keto has created a multivitamin for your brain. It’s called Nootropics and it is awesome!!

This Chocolate Flavored supplement contains few select herbs, amino acids, and lipids that support mental alertness, clarity and concentration so you can operate at full capacity. It also contains Exogenous Ketones, MCT Oil Powder and Collagen for Soft Tissue Support.

Perfect Keto Nootropics keeps my brain engaged and clear for the entire day!


ELECTROLYTES

By now I am pretty much a broken record about Electrolytes!

Avoid the dreaded “Keto Flu” by upping your Electrolytes. The process of transitioning to Keto flushes out a lot of your electrolytes making you feel horrible.

Grab a smart water, increase your Himalayan Pink salt intake, and if all else fails, try an Electrolyte Supplement.

This one from Perfect Keto is my favorite.


The folks at Perfect Keto have extended the Keto In the City community an amazing 20% discount when you use the code KETOINTHECITY at checkout! SO Stock up Now!!!

It's Perfect Keto's MCT Oil Powder is what really sets them apart from other companies who sell MCT.

MCT Oil Powder is that same high quality MCT Oil made into a powder. The powder allows you to use it in many different ways. It also allows Perfect Keto to make several different flavors.

MCT Oil Powder comes in many different flavors including: unflavored, Chocolate, Vanilla, Salted Caramel, and Matcha. I love adding the Salted Caramel flavor to my coffee for a warm keto treat that also gives me amazing energy to start my day.

Recently Perfect Keto did us all a huge favor and started making MCT Oil Powder Single Packets. These handy little guys travel everywhere with me.

KETO TIPS AND TRICKS: Keto Starter Bundle

Starting keto can be daunting. I constantly get questions about how to calculate macros, avoid the “keto flu”, and how to know if you are on the right track.

The first thing to do when switching to a keto lifestyle is calculate your macros. I use this Macro Calculator by Perfect Keto. It allows you to input your goals for Keto and takes them in to account as it calculates your target fats, proteins, carbs, and calories for the day.

I’ve head a lot of talk about the “keto flu” that some people experience in their first week of keto. Transitioning to the keto way of eating can be hard for everyone. The body goes through a lot transitioning from carb/sugar burning to become fat/ketone burning. However, I am certain that this “flu” has to do with a lack of electrolytes.

To ease the transition, be proactive about consuming:

  • Water with electrolytes (I use Smart Water)

  • Pink Salt (it is better than table salt), you need extra salt on Keto because you are not eating processed carbs that are full of salt

  • Extra salt: sip broth, take a shot of pickle juice, add pink salt to your water, you need extra salt on keto

  • Potassium rich foods (avocado and spinach have way more potassium than a sugary and very non-keto banana)

  • Magnesium rich foods (dark chocolate, nuts, artichoke, spinach, fish) and/or take a supplement.

So you’ve calculated your macros, stalked up on smart water and pink salt, and you are still nervous? Don’t be. You are on the right track. The next step is to grab a Perfect Keto Starter Bundle. It comes with my four favorite Perfect Keto products for great energy, recovery, and managing/maintaining Ketosis.

The Perfect Keto Starter Bundle comes with: 

  • Exogenous Ketones -This base helps raise your ketone levels at any time of day for more energy and helps you get back on track after an unsuccessful day.

  • Keto Collagen Protein –This protein is paired with fats for slow absorption and the collegen is great for nails, skin, hair, and GI tract.

  • MCT Oil Powder- I love how versatile this MCT is: add it to anything for a mental boost and to satiate cravings.

  • Ketone Test Strips- These help so much in the first weeks of Keto.

Starting today you can save $28 dollars off of the already reduced price of $147. You can get all four products for $119 dollars. Just pick if you want Vanilla or Chocolate. 

Perfect Keto products ensure that you are on the right track while starting or continuing your Keto journey. I hope they help you as much as they help me.
