Hello! Today I’m reviewing a supplement called Keto OS, which is a powder you mix with water that throws your body into a fat burning state of ketosis within 30 minutes.
I’m going to warn you, this is a very long and thorough review, but I think it will answer all the questions you may have on Keto OS and you’re going to learn a few new things.
What is ketosis? Ketosis is when your body is burning ketones for energy instead of glucose.
The skinny is – you’re burning FAT rather than carbs. Good for weight loss? Heck yes! And extremely safe, by the way.
Remember the Atkins Diet – high fat, low carb? A freaking miserable diet if you’ve ever tried it, but one that works to shed weight quickly if you can endure the food restrictions.
A similar diet is the Ketogenic Diet which is a high fat/moderate protein/low carb diet and is all the craze right now, and there are plenty of restrictions. It’s similar to the induction phase of Atkins.
But what if you don’t want to follow a strict diet but you still want the fat burning/weight loss benefits of being in ketosis?
Or what if you’re following a ketogenic diet and you’re having trouble staying in ketosis or want to be able to cheat and live a little?
This is where a Keto OS sets itself apart from every other supplement on the market.
Why Am I Writing About Keto OS?
The reason I chose to review Keto OS is because my sister is drinking it, and now I am too! She lost 12 lbs in 3 weeks and looks amazing! It’s also helped her energy level, mental clarity and focus, and it’s safe for her to drink with her medical condition.
My sister has epilepsy and her Dr.’s have always recommended a Ketogenic diet (which is anti-inflammatory diet), but she has a hard time with diet restrictions.
Drinking Keto OS has been a safe and effective way for her to lose weight – weight that’s been impossible to lose since she’s on so many meds that cause weight gain!
I haven’t seen her this focused and feeling good about herself in years.
So what is Keto OS and how does this first-of-its-kind supplement put your body into ketosis?
What results can you expect with Keto OS? And does Keto OS have side effects? Let’s find out!
What is Prüvit Keto OS and How Does It Work?
Prüvit’s KETO//OS (Ketone Operating System) is a proprietary formula which delivers ketones into your system and allows you to “Bio-hack” your own body to go into instant ketosis to lose weight.
It’s the first natural consumer product to provide elevated blood ketone levels to the body.
Keto OS contains a patented and proprietary engineered ingredients formula of ketone mineral salts and MCT oils (extracted from coconuts) for optimal protein synthesis that equals high energy fuel, and the recommended dose is to drink it once or twice per day.
Ketones produce 38% more energy than glucose and is an ideal choice to fuel the body with more power by burning fat.
Normally, ketones are only produced in the body during periods of fasting, but when’s the last time you fasted?
When we were hunter-gatherers, we would have an energy surge when we were low on food (fasting) by way of ketones flooding the body.
We would go into ketosis and burn fat instead of muscle until we found our next meal. This is the body’s physiological method of survival.
But think about it – when’s the last time you had to endure a prolonged period of fasting? Give up pizza or bread? Yea, never, let’s be real!
We are a carb-loving society for sure, and that’s why our waistlines have gotten out of control.
Metabolic syndrome is projected to surpass cigarette smoking as the leading factor for heart disease. Obesity and lack of activity are to blame.
We, as a population (me included) love all the carbs that are so abundant. We don’t eat enough good fat (salmon, avocado, omega 3’s) and we surely don’t eat enough veggies and fruit.
We will never go into a state of ketosis naturally unless we follow an extremely strict ketogenic diet and even then it takes weeks to get there.
The long of the short is, drinking Keto OS twice per day can allow your body to safely go into ketosis and burn fat without having to restrict your diet.
In fact, you can pee on a ketone test strip 45-60 minutes after you drink it to “pruvit.” These are available at drug stores.
Do You Have to Eat a Special Diet to Lose Weight on Keto OS?
Would following a clean eating diet boost your results? Absolutely, that’s a no-brainer, but you don’t have to change your diet for this product to provide results.
The folks at Pruvit recommend a ketogenic diet for optimal results, but you certainly don’t have to follow this diet for Keto OS to put you into ketosis and provide results. That’s the beauty of it!
If you’re following a ketogenic diet already and have trouble staying in ketosis – drinking Keto OS can keep you in ketosis for 24 hours.
If you want to cheat with carbs now and then, you will stay in ketosis if you’re drinking Keto OS! In other words, live a little while staying on track!
I highly recommend at least trying to clean up your diet a bit and exercise if you want to get better results from drinking Keto.
The ketogenic diet is in fact the diet recommended for many health ailments (such as my sister’s epilepsy) since it’s an anti-inflammatory diet.
How Do You Drink Keto OS and What Does It Taste Like?
Keto OS Orange Dream Version 2.1
Keto OS came out with the new new Orange Dream 2.1 version in April 2016 which is a newer, more optimized version. Here’s a picture of the Orange Dream Ingredients. This is the flavor I first started with!
The Orange Dream Keto OS comes in two versions, the “Charged” version, which has about the same amount of caffeine as a cup of coffee (120 mg), and the “Non-Charged” decaffeinated version.
They offer both On-the-Go (OTG) individual envelopes or you can also buy the KAN which is a big container with a scoop. You simply mix one envelope with 12-16 oz of water, shake, and drink!
The Orange Dream flavor tastes just like a creamscicle, and if you add a squeeze of lemon it tastes like lemonade! It’s yummy!
The recommendation (and what I did) is to start by drinking only one-half of an envelope per day to allow your body to adjust to it for about 4 days. Now I’m drinking one full envelope of the Charged in the morning mixed with water.
It also tastes really good mixed with a sparkling water, like La Croix! The Keto OS website offers some fun recipes you can whip up with your Keto powder.

New Flavor: Keto OS Chocolate Swirl Version 3.0
Keto OS has just unleashed a new flavor in a new 3.0 edition of Keto OS – Chocolate Swirl! And with it, a new and improved formula. Here’s a picture of the Chocolate Swirl ingredients.
So if you’re a chocolate lover, you’re going to love how this tastes!
It tastes like a light chocolate milk, and if you add some ice to it, it tastes like a chocolate milkshake – so good!
Chocolate Swirl only comes in a “charged” version with caffeine.
What’s Different about Chocolate Swirl 3.0?
- Ratio of BHB salts for faster peak into the system which creates sustained ketone levels throughout the day
- Added Ketogenic Amino Acids and Short Chained Fatty Acids which use the same transporters as ketones so you’re getting that same direct quick uptake into your system
- Includes a Prebiotic – a food source for the good bacteria in the gut making them stronger and more able to fight off the bad bacteria and also helps with gastro intestinal upset
- Vegan, Dairy and Gluten Free so now there’s a product suitable for everyone.

Keto OS Bio Max Maui Punch Flavor – Most Advanced Version
**UPDATE 1/10/17** I just got the Bio Max Maui Punch today
I tried the Bio Max this morning for the first time and it’s hands down my favorite flavor – it tastes just like Hawaiian Punch! It’s also a bit lighter than the other flavors which I like, it’s very easy to drink.
As I sit here sipping on the Bio Max Maui Punch “Charged” version, I’ve only finished about half and I am one big ball of energy! I have an Orange Theory Fitness class scheduled at 4:30 and I’m raring to go!
The Bio Max version is the latest and greatest from Keto OS. It has the most pure, most bio-available form of ketones.
Bio Max is gluten-free, dairy-free, Vegan and Kosher Certified (like the Chocolate) and is the most advanced ketone delivery drink they offer.
Bio Max comes in both Charged and Non-Charged. My advice is to drink charged in the morning and non-charged in the afternoon.
**UPDATE 1/18/17** After a week on the Maui Punch, I’ve lost 6 lbs!!
This stuff is absolutely amazing. I’m energized all day, and I have so much motivation to work out and eat healthy. I almost have to remind myself to eat (in fact I do), since it suppresses my appetite so much.
I’m going to admit, I do like it better than the Orange Dream, but I still love the creamscicle flavor of the Orange. I have a friend who actually mixes these two flavors together so I definitely want to try that.
I’ll continue to update on my progress! I still have some weight to lose and some muscle I want to add! 😉

Keto Kreme – Healthy Fat Source for Your Coffee
Just a quick mention, Pruvit offers a companion product called Keto Kreme which is a powder you mix with your coffee or other hot beverage. Here’s a picture of the Keto Kreme ingredients.
It contains a healthy serving of FAT, yes fat (16 grams). Fat burns fat. Keto Kreme is made from coconut oil, MCT Powder and is sweetened with stevia and also contains cinnamon.
I add it to my hazelnut coffee sometimes and it’s delicious! This is a supplement that goes hand in hand with a ketogenic lifestyle.
Recommended dose is once per day, in additional to drinking Keto OS up to twice per day.
If you’re following a ketogenic diet, this is a GREAT addition to get a healthy serving of good fats which will rev up your metabolism.

Does Keto OS Have Any Side Effects?
Like any supplement, not everyone will have the same exact experience. If you’re sensitive to caffeine and drink the Keto OS Charged version late in the day, then you may have trouble falling asleep, just like coffee would.
But if you’re a regular coffee drinker like me, then you probably won’t have any issues.
Some people report a slight upset tummy when they are adjusting to it, and this is the reason to start with half a pack for at least a few days.
I did not experience this but my sister did the first couple of days she drank the Orange Dream it but it didn’t last. This is your body getting used to the MCT oils.
Maui Punch does not contain MCT oils, just pure ketones. And the Chocolate Swirl contains a prebiotic if you have gastro issues.
How I’ve Felt on Keto OS
What I’ve felt since I started drinking Keto OS is increased energy and my ability to focus on tasks without becoming distracted is remarkable.
I’ve been sailing through each day no longer experiencing those slumps of energy like I used to, or staring into space when I got bored or didn’t feel like working.
I haven’t even been drinking my afternoon cup of coffee at all. I just don’t get tired so I don’t crave it.
The Keto keeps me fueled and energized all day, but definitely NOT in a jittery-energy sort of way. Just an awake, let’s conquer the day feeling!
I want to add that it’s a very level feeling of energy, unlike coffee where you might feel pepped up for a little while but then crash.
I’ve also been powering through my workouts at the gym and pushing myself through those somewhat painful moments but gaining strength because of it, whereas before I might just stop when it got too tough.
Even my volleyball game has improved. Having the endurance to play game after game has been easier, more fun, and made me more competitive!
How Much Weight Have I Lost on Keto OS?
After the first week, I shed 5 lbs EASILY. Why is this huge for me? Well, over the past year I gained about 15 lbs going through fertility treatments. I went through 3 IVF cycles, lost a pregnancy, and went through a D&C surgery.
The hormones were no joke. I have never “not” been able to lose weight if I tried, but no matter WHAT I did, the scale did not budge. For months!! It was very discouraging and I didn’t feel like myself.
I would go running/walking (4-5 miles 3x per week), weight train, play beach volleyball, nothing worked. When you hit a plateau where the scale doesn’t budge, it can be very depressing.
However, after starting the Keto OS I have found that I’m losing weight easily and never hungry! It does suppress your appetite and what I’ve noticed is that I’m not snacking anymore at night and a smaller meal fills me up.
Maybe it was a little premature writing this review, because I haven’t lost that much weight, but often it’s harder to lose weight the closer that you are to your IDEAL weight. So that’s why this has been such a big score for me personally.
So if you have a lot of weight to lose, I can definitely see how a product like this would make it really easy. Not only because Keto OS is engineered to put you into instant ketosis, but it’s going to make you eat less, have more energy, and feel more focused.
**UPDATE** My Keto OS Before and After Photos
Ok so I promised to do this….I’m putting myself out there so you can see for yourself what Keto-OS can do.
My before pictures were taken four weeks before my after photos. So in 4 weeks, I’ve lost about 10 lbs total. Whoop!
You can tell by my photos how my body composition has changed. I have replaced fat with some muscle and I’m a lot less bloated.
I lost the most weight around my middle, my back, rear end and top of my thighs. My face also feels slimmer and less puffy.
I would be willing to bet I’ve lost 10 lbs of fat but added 5 lbs of muscle. So I can’t go by the scale anymore, I’m going by how my clothes fit.
This is progress! I know I’m already small framed, but the last 5-10 lbs is always the hardest. I would actually like to add more muscle, but for now I’m happy because my love handles are gone and I can fit into my size 6 skinny jeans again!
Keto OS N8TIVE ZONE – For the Hardcore Athletes
If you’re reading this and you consider yourself more hardcore, i.e. you’re a weight lifter, crossfitter, triathlete, someone who wants to get completely shredded, willing to eat a ketogenic diet and do some intermittent fasting for optimal results, read about Pruvit Keto-OS’s plan for getting into the N8TIVE ZONE.
My Ketogenic Goal for 2017!
My goal for 2017 is to eat “more” of a ketogenic diet. I’m not going crazy with it, I’m just going to try to lower my carbs and eat more healthy fats like salmon, avocado, nuts, cook in coconut oil and commit to drinking Keto OS daily.
Am I going to cheat and eat carbs? Of course! There’s no way I could personally follow a strict ketogenic diet ALL the time, I like good carbs too much (and occasional pizza!).
But this is where the Keto OS helps – even if I cheat I’m going to stay in ketosis and continue to burn fat for fuel.
I also joined Orange Theory Fitness and at 44 years old, I plan on getting in the best shape of my life!
What Other Ailments/Illnesses Can Keto OS Help With?
Aside from the obvious weight loss benefits, Keto OS has many other health benefits and the research section of their website has a ton of published PubMed research and clinical trials to back up their claims.
For me personally, inflammation is an issue. I have blepharitis of the eyes (ocular rosacea) and my eyes have definitely improved from the anti-inflammatory benefits from drinking Keto-OS.
Rosacea is inflammation, so if you treat the root of the problem, you’re going to see an improvement. For the first time in a while, my eyes actually look white instead of red!
Here are some highlights of what Keto OS can help with aside from weight loss:
- Keto OS fights chronic inflammation, which for some can mean chronic pain or achy joints
- Provides cognitive improvement and neuroprotection for the brain, which can ward off Alzheimer’s disease.
- Improves insulin sensitivity for the treatment of diabetes.
- Improves cellular health and longevity, along with anti-aging benefits.
- Weight loss – fat loss without muscle loss.
- Cancer inhibiting – cancer cells can’t live using ketones as fuel.
Keto OS has been seen on ABC, NBC, Fox news, and studied at Yale University and Oxford. Keto OS is lab tested, Doctor approved, has its CFA (Certificate of Analysis) and has a patent on its proprietary formula.
Where Can I Buy Keto OS & How Much Does it Cost?
As of right now, the only place to purchase Keto OS is online from their official website and it comes with a 100% 90 day money back guarantee – basically risk free!
The cost varies depending on how much you buy, and if there’s one drawback to this product, it would be that it’s a bit pricey! But you can’t put a price on preventative health.
The Smartship option does provide 17% savings – this is where they’ll automatically send it to you each month (but this is just an option and you can cancel anytime).
With each package, you’ll pick which flavor you want, and whether or not you want the charged or the non-charged.
- 15 servings (OTG) = $85 ($76 w/Smartship)
- 30 servings (OTG) = $160 ($144 w/Smartship)
- 30 servings (Kan) = $144 ($133 w/Smartship)
- 60 servings (Kan 30 + OTG 30) = $300 ($255 w/Smartship)
- 90 servings – *Family Pack (90 OTG Mix Pack, Orange Dream & Chocolate Swirl) = $408
- 200 servings – *Experience Pack (200 OTG Mix Pack, 80 Maui Punch/60 Chocolate Swirl/60 Orange Dream) = $928
*Family Pack and Experience Pack are available to promoters only
A word of warning – I don’t recommend buying from Amazon or ebay. This is someone’s leftover product and there are a lot of fakes out there. Just like fake designer purses, there are fake supplements and skin care products galore! And you won’t be eligible for money back guarantee.

Which Keto OS Package Should You Buy?
After my sister gave me a couple samples, I first bought the 30 OTG Pack in Orange Dream Charged and did well with that for a few months. I did the Smartship and saved $16 off the $160 price so it came out to $144 per month.
Since my husband also started drinking it with me, now I get the Family Pack. The Family Pack is 90 OTG servings and it has both flavors with a mix of everything (30 Orange Dream Charged, 30 Orange Dream Non-Charged, and 30 Chocolate Swirl Charged).
Now that I’m love with the Maui Punch flavor, I changed my order online to include the smart ship of the Bio Max so I can save on it since it’s a bit more expensive than the other flavors.
For those days that I want to drink two, I like drinking the charged in the morning and non-charged in the afternoon, and I like having the option of different flavors!
Good luck and I encourage you to try it! I have quickly become passionate about this product not only for the weight loss, but how great it’s helped both me and my sister to feel!

Maui Punch Bio Max
I was eating a low carb diet but my energy levels were low. Started drinking the Biomax fruit punch flavor and my energy levels are incredible and I’m staying in ketosis. I needed something to help me with energy mostly but it’s also suppressing my appetite which is a nice side effect. I’m a very happy customer.
I drink a combo of the Orange and the new Bio Max. If you like to lift weights, having a serving before the gym can really help you lift heavier, stay sharper and eases inflammation, I don’t get as sore as I used to. This stuff has helped me lose about 5% body fat in a few months. Bio Max is more expensive so I also get the Orange flavor to keep the price down, I like both.
I am impressed so far. I mostly lift weights and wanted to get “shredded” or lean out. Keto is giving me energy to push through the burn and suppress my late night munchies, which is probably what was keeping me from meeting my goals. For only being on it two weeks, I’m already seeing a difference. I feel leaner and less bloated for sure. I also seem to not get as sore from my workouts. Great stuff so far so good.
I’ve lost 10 lbs in 3 weeks drinking Keto, the decaf. I also have been eating better and walking 3x week. It reduces my appetite a lot. I don’t have cravings anymore at night.
I started drinking Keto a couple of weeks ago, bought the 30 pack to try for a month. My energy is through the roof and I’ve lost 6 lbs. It gives me steady energy throughout the day and I don’t crash like I used to. Good stuff. I know this review was from a women’s point of view, but it works well for guys just the same. Do some research on this product and you’ll see it does a lot more than weight loss.
I work in an office of overweight people. I’ve lost 15 lbs this month drinking keto twice a day. Charged in the morning and decaf in the afternoon. People are asking me my secret so now we have a keto os weight loss group at work. Some of us have also been walking for 30 minutes during lunch. My joints also don’t hurt as much anymore and my blood pressure is lower. I’m still new to keto but it’s exciting to be the start of something great and we are all eager to get our health back!
Great for energy
I have loved how much energy I have since I started the keto. I have energy all day and never get sleepy in the afternoons. I used to go for coffee but don’t feel the need anymore. It gives me energy to take care of my kids when I get home also. I’m losing weight and feeling great!
I lost 2.5 lbs my first day…
I started drinking Keto yesterday and wanted to share my experience. I drank half a pack of the charged at 7:30 am. I wasn’t hungry all day but forced myself to have small snacks and a healthy, low carb dinner. I don’t know if I was bloated before but I woke up this morning and had lost 2.5 lbs! I had a little trouble going to sleep last night probably because I didn’t exercise to burn off any of the caffeine affect. I am going to drink half another couple of days before drinking a whole one. I’m loving this stuff so far! I am over the moon how it helps to kill my appetite and late night snacking!

Q: When I drink on an empty stomach in the morning I don't get hungry until sometimes 1:00. Is this bad to not eat for that long? It suppresses my appetite so much I almost have to remind myself/force myself to eat. I did read something about intermittent fasting but I wasn't sure if that was the best way. Should I eat even if I'm not hungry? I've lost 10 lbs in two weeks! And easily! Thanks. -Tiffany
