Pruvit KETO OS Review & Results – Lose Your Muffin Top (2019)

Hello world! If you’re looking for a detailed Pruvit Keto OS review review driven by education and results, you’ve found it!

My name is Rachel Vrabel and you can find me on Instagram @womensblogtalk or on Facebook.

I started drinking ketones in 2015 when Pruvit first brought exogenous ketones to the market when the only flavor was Orange Dream, and now there’s a buffet of delicious flavors!

It’s 2019, and I continue to drink them daily since it gives me so many benefits and want to share my journey with you!

Pruvit Keto OS (Ketone Operating System) is an exogenous ketones powder you mix with water that comes in charged and decaf in a variety of YUMMY flavors!

Pruvit Keto OS review
Before & Better! Results may vary.

One serving of Keto OS elevates your ketone levels and puts you into therapeutic ketosis.  The skinny is – you help your body burn fat rather than glucose. It suppresses appetite, and is a great tool for intermittent fasting.

What I love most about drinking ketones is how they make me FEEL – happy and with sustained energy throughout the day, focused, and much better workouts!

Pruvit Ketones Vs. Ketogenic Diet

The Ketogenic Diet will also put your body into ketosis, however it’s very strict – less than 20 grams of carbs per day. To put that in perspective – one cup of rice has about 48 grams of carbs. Yea….three bites and you’re out of ketosis.

When you lower carbs to that level, your body makes “endogenous” ketones through a process called Ketogenesis. Your body is literally turning fat into a fuel called a ketone body (BHB).

A ketogenic diet has many therapeutic applications aside from fat loss, and while it’s not new, it has however become a very popular way to lose weight quickly.

Fasting and other Keto diet regimens date back to 500 BC, and the ketogenic diet has been used to treat epileptic seizures since the 1920’s (NCBI study).

My younger sister was diagnosed with epilepsy at 8 years old (she’s 35 now), and following a Keto diet has not been something she can stick to. It’s tough to do, even when you know you could benefit greatly from it! (More on my sis…keep reading).

Me and my sis! Best friends and #PruvitSisters

So what if you still want the benefits of being in a state of ketosis but don’t want to be perfect with diet?

Less hunger, amazing energy, fuel to intermittent fast, fat loss?  Or what if your body just doesn’t produce a ton of ketones on its own? This is where using a ketones supplement is hugely beneficial! 

Ketosis in Under an Hour

The definition of KETOSIS is having elevated blood ketone levels. By drinking Pruvit Keto OS “exogenous” ketones you put your body into a much higher therapeutic state of ketosis and give your body a FUEL SOURCE, in under an hour. 

You DO NOT have to follow a ketogenic diet to benefit from drinking ketones!  Ketones bring compliance to any healthy eating plan since they help so much with energy and appetite suppression. And some people just drink them for all the other benefits. 

Benefits of Drinking Ketones:

  • Sustained energy
  • Increased focus
  • Suppressed appetite
  • Better mood
  • Better sleep
  • Muscle preservation
  • Clear skin
  • Fat loss

Pruvit Keto OS Results – My Initial Fat Loss Results

The first time I started drinking Pruvit Keto OS (Orange Dream) was in Oct. 2015 and it helped me to eat healthier, snack less,  and get some fat loss going.  I lost about 11 lbs in six weeks!

keto os before and after photo
Results may vary

This was huge for me since the prior year I’d gained a little extra padding 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. No matter WHAT I did, I couldn’t seem to get any fat loss going, not to mention my mental state, I felt depressed.

However, after starting the ketones I noticed my clothes started to fit differently, I wasn’t as hungry, and my mood did a 180!

Like many lifestyle changes we get excited about starting, I got complacent after a while. I got out of the habit of drinking ketones, and I started eating bad again.

Sometimes you don’t realize how much something has helped you until you stop, can you relate?

I started drinking ketones again when the Maui Punch came out in 2016, and haven’t stopped since. I made the realization that a daily dose just helps me, well… age better.

Long Term Benefits of Drinking Ketones

When I recommitted to drinking ketones, I made some other lifestyle changes as well. I not only wanted to lose fat, but I wanted to shape my body.

I joined Orange Theory Fitness (which is HIIT training – run, row, weights) and I do that 2-3x per week and  play some beach volleyball on the weekends.

I did eat a strict ketogenic diet my first six weeks getting back on the ketones which helped a lot to get my body burning some serious fat for fuel.

But after a while, I just didn’t feel like following a strict Keto diet was for me. I missed fruit (and carbs) and I’ve never liked fatty meats. So now I just try to eat healthy “most of the time” but I still eat carbs and have my cheats!

The combination of drinking ketones, eating healthy and exercising helped my body fat drop from 25% to 18% in four months and I lost 17 lbs!

Since being back on ketones, I have my energy back, my mood is lifted, my skin is clear, and I’m a LOT more focused and productive in life.

As I write this (and I update this blog frequently), I’m still going strong. I keep my results and stay on track drinking 1, sometimes 2 servings per day and feel great!

What Inspired me to Try Ketones

As I mentioned before, my sister has had epilepsy since the age of 8 and her Dr.’s have always recommended a Ketogenic diet, but she has a hard time with diet restrictions, who doesn’t?

Drinking Keto OS gave her energy and helped suppress her appetite so she was able to make better food choices and get to those yoga and Orange Theory workouts. She lost a little over 11 lbs in 3 weeks!

I thank her all the time for introducing me to ketones! We have both kept our results by continuing to drink them daily! Ketones are really good for your brain!

How to Drink Ketones

If you’re just starting to drink ketones, don’t make any major diet changes overnight. This is a new lifestyle, give yourself time to adapt!

Don’t be that person who cuts all carbs out of your life overnight, eats a mega fatty meal, drinks a Keto OS and says, “ahhh man, these ketones gave me the worst belly ache.” *insert face palm here*

For your first week, just add the ketones once a day and see how it changes your appetite, and how it helps you FEEL. Then gradually move on to lower carb or Keto diet if that’s your goal.

There is really no right or wrong way to drink ketones – some just drink them in the afternoon to get rid of brain fog, or as a pre-workout. Others enjoy the intermittent fasting routines, especially if FAT LOSS is your goal!

I recommend trying all of these methods to see how you feel best, or just to switch it up!

Best Ways to Drink Ketones:

  1. Drink 1 serving of Keto NAT in the morning on an empty stomach, and delay eating until you’re hungry – until between 11 and 1 pm. This is intermittent fasting. Keto NAT does NOT break a fast. Drink a second serving in the afternoon for optimal therapeutic ketosis throughout the day!
  2. Drink 1 serving of Keto NAT in the morning on an empty stomach, but but break your fast with Keto Kreme and coffee (fat coffee) instead of a meal. Continuing fasting until you get hungry, then eat. Drink a second serving of Keto NAT in the afternoon for optimal benefit.
  3. Start your day with a Keto Kreme in coffee (or tea). This does technically break a fast since the fats in the Keto Kreme contain more than 50 calories, but some people do VERY well “fat fasting.” You can also use the plain MCT//143 in coffee (I love the MCT!) Drink a Keto NAT once you start to feel hungry and delay eating. Or, eat your first meal then drink your Keto NAT about 30 minutes later and conquer the rest of the day!
  4. You CAN eat first before drinking a Keto NAT, and if your stomach is sensitive to the ketones right off the bat, eat something first then drink a Keto NAT for energy and for help with appetite the rest of the day.
  5. As a pre-workout, drink one serving of Keto NAT an hour before your workout. Drink water during your workout. You may notice a much better, stronger, more energized workout with better endurance! Ketones help bring oxygen to those muscles!
  6. Simply add to your day! Whether or not you’re using ketones to intermittent fast or not, and whether you’re following a low carb or Keto diet – just add at least one Keto NAT wherever it fits in to your day and see how things change!

Additional Tips to Drinking Ketones:

  • Don’t guzzle your ketones – sip on them over 20-30 minutes.
  • Use a big shaker cup (20 oz) and fill with ice and water to mix your ketones. Sometimes I make mine more concentrated so I can drink them faster. Mix to suit your taste.
  • Add the Mito//Plex electrolytes either right into your ketones, or in your Keto Kreme coffee. It does “slightly” change the taste of the ketones but not by much. Electrolytes are so important, especially if you’re also eating low carb or Keto.
  • Drink decaf ketones for your second serving if it’s late in the day if you’re sensitive to caffeine.
  • Drink decaf ketones am and pm if you simply can’t have caffeine or want to avoid it.
  • If you CAN have caffeine, I recommend CHARGED, at least for your morning drink – caffeine does help the ketones to work better and also helps with appetite suppression. If I have two, I usually drink two charged! But that’s me 🙂

Pruvit Keto OS Flavors – from Past to Present

Pruvit Ketones

The Original Pruvit Keto OS Flavors

Pruvit brought their exogenous ketones to the market place using Dr. Dominic D’Agostino’s patented formula of ketones + MCT (medium chain triglycerides, which is fat extracted from coconut). The first two original flavors were:

  • Keto OS Orange Dream tastes like an orange creamscicle and contains MCT.
  • Keto OS Chocolate Swirl tastes like a tootsie roll but the only way I liked it was mixed with iced coffee and heavy whipping cream.

Keto//OS Orange Dream and Chocolate Swirl flavors have come back in the Keto//OS Pro + MCT shake and are now available!

Keto Max Flavors

Max salts are different from the original OS salts. Max contained the most pure, most bio-available form of ketones, meaning your body can more easily absorb it so there’s a faster uptake, quicker peak, and provides more energy – Keto Max is 40% stronger than the original Keto OS.

All Keto Max/NAT flavors are gluten-free, dairy-free, Vegan and Kosher Certified and contain CMed 100 (AC-11) for DNA repair.

Many Max flavors were released like Raspberry Lemonade, Splash, Heart Tart and Swiss Cacao…too many to list but I’ve tried them all! Some are gone, but most are now in the new Keto NAT formula, Pruvit’s upgraded formula.

Keto Max samples

Pruvit Keto OS NAT Flavors

What is Keto NAT?

Keto NAT is Pruvit’s brand new formula – the worlds first all natural, fermented ketones and even more bioavailable.

Most of the former Keto Max flavors are now in the Keto NAT formula, so think of it as a “Max Upgrade.”

Keto NAT Flavors:

  • Keto NAT Maui Punch tastes just like a fruity punch! One of my all time faves, fruity deliciousness like a Hawaiian Punch

  • Keto NAT Splash is a light, citrusy, watermelon-grapefruit fusion. Splash is my sister’s favorite!
  • Keto NAT Lime Time is probably my favorite flavor of all time – it reminds me of lemon/lime gatorade – it’s soooo good! So light and so refreshing.
  • Keto NAT Heart Tart  reminds me of strawberry jello or a strawberry sweet-tart, it’s DELICIOUS! People ADORE Heart Tart.
  • Keto Unleashed Blue Ocean – If you like Pina Coladas….:) Aside from the Lime, Blue Ocean is my favorite! Tropical blue Pina Colada flavor.

Keto NAT vs. Keto Unleashed

Pruvit’s Unleashed line of ketones is their “amped” ketones, with 30% more ketones and more caffeine than Keto NAT (Unleashed doesn’t come in decaf).

You will definitely feel the difference drinking the Unleashed line – it’s got over 17 grams BHB where Keto NAT has a little over 12. 

I LOVE the Blue Ocean Unleashed…and I drink this one every day now. I just love the extra energy.

Pruvit Keto NAT and Keto Unleashed Special Flavors

Here are some of the latest new unreleased flavors that you may only catch on a special sale or being a Smartship customer.

pruvit special flavors

  • Unleashed Ruby Rush tastes just like a red, juicy grapefruit, it’s delicious!  AMAZING clean and sustained energy! Literally one keeps me going all day (same energy as the Blue Ocean).
  • Keto Unleashed Eclipse is a black cherry flavor, and very smooth and with some hints of grape. I’m not a huge grape fan of anything, so it’s not my favorite but some love it. Eclipse is a revamped version of the original Black Midnight/White Midnight.
  • Keto NAT Fairy Dust – tastes like a “berry tea”
  • Keto NAT Celebration – light pear/champagne flavor.
  • Keto NAT Holy Grail – coconut lemon, I taste more lemon than coconut! Some say it reminds them of a lemon bar. I feel this one has a stronger flavor than most.

Keto Reboot 60 Hour Fast

Pruvit Keto Reboot for sale

Pruvit’s new Keto Reboot (on sale each month from 1st – 5th) is becoming a very popular way to reset your metabolism for a full body reset. A lot of changes can be made in 60 hours and bad habits broken.

The Keto Reboot was an AMAZING experience, and I’ve done it several times. Some people do it monthly and if you have weight to lose, do it!

Keto Reboot is a 60 hour fast (no food) using Keto Max, Keto Kalm Tea, Keto Broth, and Signal-OS capsules for DNA repair.

But don’t think of the Keto Reboot as a quick fix, you’ll definitely want to just drink ketones on the regular as well.

Testing your Ketone Levels

Drinking one serving of Pruvit’s Keto OS “Bio-hacks” your body into ketosis in under an hour. 

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, and you can read about testing for ketones here.

pruvit results

However, don’t get too hung on on peeing on stuff. Blood ketone tests are far more accurate than urine strips but they’ll give you an idea when you’re first getting started.

Once you’re in ketosis for a while (especially if you are following a keto diet), your body will start to utilize the ketones more efficiently.

On an average day (before drinking ketones) my blood ketone level is around 1.1 – I’m usually in a mild state of ketosis anyway from simply intermittent fasting everyday (even eating carbs, yes!)

After drinking one serving of Keto OS, I shoot up to about 3.1. I’ve even shot up to 7 with the Unleashed products when I was fasted just on black coffee and ketones (sometimes I do some longer intermittent fasting days). 

This is how ketones raise your levels to an OPTIMAL benefit even if you’re not following a ketogenic diet. I don’t count calories, macros, etc. Who has time for that? I eat when I’m hungry….and I try to eat healthy, enough said. It’s what works for me…

The Keto Mojo is really good if you’re looking for a true blood ketone/glucose meter and they offer free shipping. I also test my fasting glucose levels with the same kit (just different strips).

Keto Max testing with Keto Mojo

testing ketone levels with blood

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 Charged version late in the day, then you may have trouble falling asleep, just like coffee may keep you up.

I can tell you I can drink a Keto NAT charged late in the day and have no trouble falling asleep, Unleashed will keep me up so I make sure to drink it earlier.

Some people report an upset stomach when they are adjusting to ketones. It’s ok to just use half a pack for as long as you need to if this happens, or eat a little something first.

Other side effects could be fat loss, inches lost, cravings under control, and getting more work done! 😉

How I Feel Drinking Daily Ketones

keto os reviews
Keto OS gives me a ton of energy for Volleyball!

I’ve been sailing through each day no longer experiencing those slumps of energy like I used to. No more brain fog, and no more afternoon coffee. Much more focused!

My workouts are much more powerful and I push myself harder whereas before I might just stop when it got too tough.

It gives me energy to get my butt to the gym when I would sometimes blow it off.…you know how that goes. Half the battle is getting there!

Even my volleyball game has improved. Having the endurance to play game after game has been easier, more fun, and made me more competitive! I never go to play ball without drinking a full Charged on the way!

It helps my MOOD tremendously…my outlook and productivity has completely changed. Happy, happy!

Everyday,without fail if I didn’t have a two bag cup of tea at three thirty, I would literally be like a car running out of gas, I would just peter out.(I am 72) Since I have been taking your ketone (Pruvit) lemonade , I have been able to comfortably get through the day without sweet tea, and as icing on the cake (forgive sugar pun) I am able to accomplish more and strangely I can focus on the tasks at hand without effort. We sent a man to the moon decades ago, it’s about time something equally impressive happens, and your Pruvit products are also a giant step for mankind. Honestly I used to think this product was expensive, but.. for the benefits I personally get from your ketones, I consider the cost negligible. Thanks so much. Dr. Michael Williams, Auburn.Alabama

Let me just say that I started drinking ketones for fat loss. Lost 27 lbs in four months which I’m ecstatic about. But I wasn’t expecting to feel so good. I feel much happier and have energy for my demanding job and for my family. Even my skin looks so much better. I’m thankful I found these products as it’s been life changing.

Thanks Rachel for the ketone trial. I really enjoyed all the flavors but found that I liked using the Keto Kreme in my coffee and maui punch best! My results have been great! I actually lost 7 lbs in those 10 days and I've gone on to lose 8 more the following month. They keep me energized and not as hungry!

I was drinking the Max Maui for a couple weeks and seeing results, but when I started mixing the Maui and Orange half and half my fat loss increased and it tastes like fruity pebbles! I think there's something about the MCT oils in the Orange that my body seems to respond to. Real happy. Down 18 lbs in about one month...I haven't been under 200 since I was a teenager. yayy

User Questions and Answers



Q: How much weight should I expect to lose daily? -Terry

A: Hi Terry, everyone is different, but if you have more than 20 lbs to lose, some have reported up to a pound a day when they get started. For someone who is already closer to their goal weight, maybe closer to 1/2 lb. It also depends on your diet and whether you exercise. While you don't have to change your diet to lose weight using Keto, you'll always get faster results if you try to eat a moderate protein/high fat/low carb diet. Rachel-WomensBlogTalk.com

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

A: Tiffany, sometimes I do that, drink in the morning and then don't eat until I'm hungry. It is called intermittent fasting and it's ok to do. Just make sure you eat by lunch time if you're going to skip breakfast. Rachel

Q: I'm a 50 year old female. I had a large brain tumor removed August 4th. As a result I've lost a lot of cognitive ability, memory issues, and focus problems. I also gained 40 pounds from no activity. Steroids and stress eating. I heard Keto/os might help. I purchased and notice I am in ketosis an hour after taking it but get not a trace within 2-3 hours. Does this mean it's not working for me? is it safe to take several times a day? -Michelle

A: Hi Michelle, first of all, I'm so sorry you've had to endure so much! Are you peeing on the keto sticks? I never bothered.... I knew it worked for me because it suppressed my appetite, I lost weight, and I have great mental focus and energy. You can drink up to two per day (no more). This will definitely help keep you in ketosis longer and I've read that drinking 2x per day should keep you in ketosis for 24 hours, so maybe try again but don't get focused on the strip. One a day worked for me but everyone is different, and with more weight to lose, I would recommend two. I would do the decaf in the afternoon - the charged version may keep you up at night and you need your rest :) Good luck to you and I'd love to hear back from you to see how things progress.

Q: Hi there. What kind of workouts did you do to lose 10 pounds in 4 weeks on keto? -Heather

A: Hi Heather, thanks for your email. I usually went to the gym 1-2x per week and I mostly did plyo body weight stuff in the back room along with some kettlebell swings (15 lbs),  and I like the ball slam (only use 10 lbs).  Some free weights also, but nothing with super heavy weights.  I also play beach volleyball 1-2x per week so that gives me my cardio. So I'd say on average, I was active at least 3 days per week with a pretty vigorous workout. But like I mentioned in my article, I had been doing all this and more and the scale was not budging! When I started drinking the keto, I got fired up with energy and it helped me to push myself a little harder in the gym and the weight finally started coming off. I'm not a gym rat by any means, but I do stay pretty active.   I will email you one of my plyo workouts, in case you're not familiar. I have a ton of these if you're interested in more. I find that if I go to the gym with a plan in hand, I do everything. I hate just wandering around the gym and never get as good of a workout in.    Thanks! Rachel

Q: Ca I add a scoop of protein to my drink. -Jackie

A: Jackie, you can, but it's more effective if you drink it separately. I actually asked this question recently...it's not a huge difference but every bit helps! So if drinking it separately was 100%, maybe mixing it with a shake it would lose some strength so make it 80 or 90%. Personally I would drink 30 minutes before or after. Good luck! ~Rachel

A: Hi Libby, I don't see why it wouldn't be safe for migraine sufferers...but I'm not a Dr. so I can't be sure. Keto OS has many health benefits other than weight loss. You can take it for life, lots of people make their lifestyle Keto friendly and use Keto OS as a supplement for a ketogenic lifestyle. Check out all the Q&A at the bottom of the Keto OS Research page on their website, there is a ton of good info here regarding how Keto OS affects and/or helps certain health conditions.

Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, Rachel

Q: do they take money automatically ouy of your account monthly -michelle

A: Michelle, only if you sign up for the auto-ship program. You can just buy it outright as well as a one time purchase. If you buy it and decide you like it, auto-ship can save you about 15% but it's only an option. My first purchase was a 15 pack, then I switched over to the 30 pack on auto-ship because I drink it regularly. Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

Q: Hi there, I'm currently in the middle of an IVF cycle and wondering if it's safe to do consume this? -Jade

A: Hi Jade, I'm sorry for the delay, I've had some issues with my blog Q&A for the past few days. I know of girls who have used the decaf during an IVF cycle, but most Dr.'s will tell you to stop once you start stimming (start the injects). Personally, I don't see how it can do any harm since being in ketosis is anti-inflammatory but you should check with your Dr. and see what he recommends. Sometimes it's best not to rock the boat, especially since you're mid cycle already.  Keto does not contain any hormones. If it were me and I was mid-cycle, I would probably wait to see how it turned out. Good luck, I've been through that and it's tough. Rachel

Q: Currently I'm on day 7 or taking product, I started with the choc charge and now on the orange charge. I am not really taking to the orange as well as the choc as I'm guessing it has something to do with the dairy as I still feel bloated. Currently I'm taking half orange charge in morning and half orange non charge before bed to help sleep. I am wanting to start taking a full sachet of a morning as I'm needing the energy during the day with my kids. Can the sachets be mixed around? Also I found the choc better for my stomach as I am gluten intolerant, IBS & inflamed intestines Can you u offer any suggestions? -Kirsten Marshman

A: Hey Kirsten, both the Chocolate Swirl and the Bio Max Maui punch are gluten free, dairy free, vegan and Kosher certified. The Orange does contain the MCT oils from coconuts and a tiny bit of dairy. Not usually enough to bother someone but you never know. The oils can sometimes bother some people as they adjust to it but any upset tummy usually passes, that's why they say to start slowly. If you need more energy than I would definitely start drinking a whole Chocolate swirl in the morning on an empty stomach and don't eat until you're hungry. You can eat first if you like as well, either way works well. And continue with the half of the Orange Dream before bed. You can always work up to half of a pack of the decaf orange if you like. Since you mentioned your gluten intolerance, IBS etc I do feel that the chocolate is the best solution for you but you may do just as well with the Maui. You could always get some decaf chocolate for evening if you have any trouble with the MCT oils in the orange. I find the Maui extremely easy to drink as well. Good luck, and you should have more energy by drinking a whole pack for sure!! That'll take your energy and focus to the next level. Let me know if you have any more questions and keep me updated.

Q: Do you drink it in the morning and afternoon or does the one hold you over? -jenn

A: Jenn, I only drank one in the morning. That did the trick for me. I basically never got hungry until dinner. If you have more weight to lose, then I can see how drinking it twice per day could speed things up and also suppress your appetite throughout the night, especially if you're a late night snacker. I would try one to see how you feel, and after a week or so you could try two and go from there. Good luck! ~Rachel

Q: Hi Rachel, I recently started drinking Keto/os and started eating a low carb diet with it and already seeing results but I was wondering if I could use Keto/Os while doing the Weight Watchers program? Thank you! -Rachel

A: Hi Rachel, thanks for your message. I'm glad you're starting to see results! My question is....since you're seeing results on your current diet, why do Weight Watchers and spend all that money? I'm honestly not a fan of WW. I've never personally done it, so I'm not judging at all, I just think if you stick with a low carb/high fat diet you're going to see the best results. I don't think WW counts macros do they? They just want you to eat within a certain calorie range while eating what you want? Have you thought about doing more of a ketogenic diet? Eating this way is the optimal method for losing weight while drinking Keto OS. WW is good for some people since it forces you to stay accountable, this I totally dig, it's a real motivating factor. You could certainly give it a try, but when you choose your foods try to incorporate good fats and eat lower carb, while staying within their calorie range. I like doing the intermittent fasting and only eat two meals a day plus a snack. Good luck whichever way you decide and you can email me at [email protected] if you'd like to talk more about diet privately. I'm happy to help! Rachel

Q: Hi there. I've been using the chocolate keto for a week and a half. I haven't lost any weight. I'm following a low carb diet. What gives? Also, I'm never hungry, like ever. I have to force myself to eat. Is this normal? I work a very busy schedule and have 7 kids to attend to, so without hunger to remind me i need to eat, I end up forgetting to eat... I know that must be really bad for me, but how do I remedy it? -Stefanie

A: Hi Stefanie, you have to give it a little longer:) Some people take a week or two to "keto adapt." There are many processes in the body, even in the mitochondria of our cells when we switch to fat for fuel and go into ketosis. It sounds like you are definitely starting to feel some of the benefits of ketosis however, a suppressed appetite is one of them, and I hope that it's given you some energy to manage 7 little ones, wow! I do an intermittent fasting method, so I drink it in the morning and don't eat until I'm hungry, usually 1:00pm. Then I'll have a snack around 5 then eat dinner around 9. I don't eat 3 + meals a day like I used to. When you tap into your fat stores you have so much fuel! This is why you still feel good even though you're not eating as much, you don't get those crashes from not having carbs/sugar to constantly give your body more fuel. It's way more efficient burning fat for fuel and we feel better. Just give it some time. Experiencing fat loss will come, but do try to eat. Just eat high fat, low carb if you can - fat is very filling in small quantaties, and fat calories add up more quickly than you think, so you won't be starving yourself by any means. Good luck and feel free to email me at [email protected] if you'd like to talk again in a week or so. I'd love to hear from you to see how you're doing. Good luck! Rachel

Q: I have been on Prufit since March but I don't feel like I am not getting into ketos now ! Do u have any ideas to help -Sherry

A: Hi Sherry, so you've been on Keto OS for about a month? I don't understand your question though - you don't feel like you're in ketosis? Are you testing with a urine strip? Are you drinking two per day? Drinking two per day will keep you in ketosis for 24 hours. If you're just drinking one, it's going to wear off at some point in the afternoon. Try drinking two, which is the optimal dosage, and get back to me. Also, try to eat high fat, low carb. Increasing your healthy fats will get you in deeper. The Keto Kreme is a great way to start your day with a high fat content (it's like Pruvit's bullet proof coffee), then drink a Keto OS, and another one in the afternoon. Good luck! Rachel

Q: Is this safe to drink if you have high cholesterol? Or high triglycerides? I know fat is not good for me. I have been exercising st the gym everyday, and no fried foods, and lots of water. I am getting tired of salads everyday... -Sherry

A: Hi Sherry, a ketogenic diet should help someone with high cholesterol since it increases HDL which is the good cholesteral. Have you talked to your Dr. about a ketogenic diet avoiding the bad fats? The key is to eat a low carb, higher fat (good fats) diet. You would want to avoid the bad saturated fat (fried foods, processed foods) but eating healthy fats such as salmon, avocado, olive oil and balsamic on your salads, cooking in coconut oil - those should help. Drinking Keto OS promotes ketosis, and you will still burn fat and  still drink it without changing your diet if you're already on a diet plan that you're happy with.  I'd say go for it! It's 20% off today and tomorrow for March Madness Final Four sale, you can visit the Keto OS Website here. Good luck! Rachel

Q: I have 2 jugs of Keto I am anxiously awaiting to get started with. I do not know what to eat, nor how much or how often. Please instruct me on what to eat, how much, how often. I need to get rid of 100 lbs. I do not/can not exercise due to chronic COPD....I am anxious to get started. I didnt want to start w/o a food plan because I did not want to "waste" the Keto....thinking eating right and keto go together....THANK-YOU so much for your time!! -Nicole

A: Hi Nicole, the people at Keto OS "recommend" a more ketogenic diet which is low carb/moderate protein/high fat (good fat), but you don't have to do a strict ketogenic diet to lose weight drinking Keto OS, that's the beauty of it. Of course if you eat clean you'll have better results, faster results, and feel better all around, but my recommendation to you is to start slowly. When you do things drastic overnight oftentimes those habits won't continue. Start small. If you normally eat a lot of carbs at dinner, cut that in half. If you don't normally eat fruit at breakfast, add a piece of fruit before you eat your normal breakfast. If you don't normally eat healthy fats, try drizzling some olive oil on some steamed veggies, eating half of a small haas avocado in your salad, or sprinkle some nuts on some oatmeal in the morning. Small changes turn into habits. Give yourself time to adjust to drinking the Keto OS while you research some meal plans. Just try to cook one or two healthy meals during the week if you're not used to cooking. You get what I'm saying? Don't shock your system too much it never works. Start drinking the Keto OS slowly, half a pack per day for at least 3-4 days. If you feel fine, then drink a whole one on the 5th day. Stay at one pack for about a week. Then slowly add in half a pack in the afternoon in addition to your full one in the morning. Do that for a week. Finally you should be drinking one in the morning and one in the afternoon for optimal weight loss. Once you're drinking two packs per day, you should stay in ketosis for up to 24 hours and that's when you'll really start seeing results. I hope this has helped. I can't really give you a detailed meal plan.... just some tips. Keep in touch and let me know how it's going, and good luck!! ~Rachel

Q: So my main question is what happens when u stop taking KETO OS? I mean I would love to try it but it is sooooo expensive I could never do it long term. Also I'm torn between the Maui Punch and Orange Creme....suggestions?? -Christy

A: Hi Christie, you won't gain weight unless you go back to a standard american diet which is very high in carbs and sugar...you can drink Keto to lose the weight you want and then continue to eat a healthy, lower carb diet and keep your results. This really applies to any diet right? Use the Keto to adapt some healthier eating habits and stick with them so it's no longer a diet but a way of life ;) If price is an issue, go with the Orange Dream, it's great for weight loss and keeps you feeling full since it contains the MCT oils. It does take some adjusting to if you're not used to MCT or a high fat diet. The Maui is great also, their best product and it doesn't contain the MCT so it's easier to adjust to in my opinion. It's 15% off through Friday at midnight so it's a good time to grab some. Visit my Pruvit store here. Thanks and good luck! ~Rachel

Q: I have been following a keto style diet and started keto is today I'm excited but I've noticed a faint headache all day , now I'm worried :( -Danette

A: Danette, be sure and drink plenty of fresh water as you start your keto os journey. A ketogenic diet plus Keto OS really flushes the body so you could just be a little dehydrated. Be sure and keep your electrolytes up as well. I've been using Himalayan salt on my foods to keep up my sodium and minerals. Also, you should have started with a half of a pack and do that for a few days while your body gets used to it. You didn't mention how much you drank but that's something to consider. Good luck! Rachel

Q: Hi...so far all the information reads really well. I'm just wondering what happens when you stop taking the product. Say for example you reach your goal weight and feel great at about the 12 week mark so you stop the product. Will you gain that weight back ? I presume you go back to normal burning of carbs instead of fat and I am asking presuming you maintain a healthy diet, are you likely to put the lost weight straight back on? thankyou -cheryl

A: Cheryl, the answer is no. Even if you took it for 12 weeks, lost the weight you wanted, if you continue to eat a healthy low carb diet and exercise regularly (the key to keeping any weight loss off) you should not just gain weight back. When I first lost the 12 lbs, I stopped after a while...I was feeling good and happy about the weight loss. However, old habits crept in, I started eating unhealthy i.e pizza on Sundays, too many cheese and crackers, etc. Just too much carbs and crap. I decided this year I'm tired of gaining and losing the same 15 lbs. I'm back on Keto and I'm drinking the Maui Punch flavor now. I'm also trying to eat a more ketogenic diet but not going crazy with it. Getting into nutritional ketosis from diet alone is very tough, and tough to stay there. I'll be staying in ketosis with help of keto os and eating good. I've lost 4 lbs since this past Sunday and I'm committed to making keto a lifestyle. I think a good maintenance plan is to drink a couple a day until you lose the weight you want, and then maintain with just once a day in the morning. But just stopping the keto is not going to make you gain weight, unless you pair that with pizza haha. Good luck! And let me know if you have questions.

Q: Can you clarify something for me if possibe. I wanted to find out if the Keto//os chocolate swirl in fact has chocolate in it?? I have been told Natural Chocolate Flavour & NO cocoa but not clearly stated what Natural Chocolate Flavour actually is? & also is it chocolate?? I am allergic to chocolate due to migraines so don't want to get it if in fact it is chocolate. Can you clarify please :) -Libby

A: Hi Libby, thanks for your question. The chocolate swirl doesn't contain chocolate, just natural flavoring. If you visit the chocolate swirl page, and then up towards the top click on "Use and Ingredients" then it will show you a picture of the label. You should be fine :) Rachel

Q: Hi Rachel, Have currently been on Keto for a month. I have been taking the Orange charge of a morning after a coffee and some mornings I will have the chocolate charge. Sometimes at night I will have the orange nin charge before I go to be. Currently at 71kg (wanting to get to 64kg) I am struggling to break past 70kg. I do struggle quite a bit hormonally with PCOS and lately by lunchtime I am very fatigue already and struggle to get through the afternoon then when it's bedtime I struggle going to sleep. I have just received my chocolate non charge today which I've heard is better to help sleeping. My query is should I try taking choc non charge at night or trying having the choc non charge in the afternoon/after lunch to get me through? -Kirsten

A: Hi Kirsten, Thanks for your message. Trouble sleeping is the worst! I would say if you're drinking the charged early in the morning, try doing half a pack of the chocolate non-charged in the afternoon and maybe drink the other half after dinner to help with sleep. Or, if you really feel like you're struggling in the afternoon drink another half charged to give you a little energy then some non-charged before bed. If I drink mine early enough in the morning, I'm craving more charged come 2 or 3:00. But I try not to drink any charged after that time because it will keep me up.  Have you ever tried a very small dose (3 mg) of melatonin to help you sleep? I try to avoid any sleep aids, but if and when I do need any help, if I'm just tossing and turning, I'll resort to a 3 mg melatonin. 1 mg is even better if you can find that dosage. I've read studies where they talk alot about how we really only need a tiny dose for sleep, and it comes in larger doses which we don't need at all. Anyhow, just thought I'd mention that as well in case you were ever really desperate. Keep at it, also about the plateau - how's your diet? I was eating a pure ketogenic diet for about 5 weeks and hit a plateau. I added back some carbs (protein shake with ground flax and handful of blueberries) and also a little sweet potato on the nights I work out, and I busted right through it. Sometimes confusing the body helps shake things up. Let me know if you have any more questions, or you can email me directly at [email protected] if you'd like to chat privately. Keep it up! Rachel

Q: Rachel, if I have gut issues, which flavor would be the best choice? Thanks -Jessica

A: Hi Jessica, that's a good question. The Keto OS Chocolate Swirl is best for people who have gastrointestinal issues since it contains a prebiotic.  The Orange Dream does contain MCT oils and that's usually the culprit for any upset tummy, even though I never had a problem. This is also the reason it's best to start slowly with half a pack per day for a few days to see how you do. Also the BioMax does not contain the MCT oils and it's the product with the most pure form of ketones and salts being the most bioavailable. Good luck! Rachel

Q: Does this put you into full ketos? How long do you stay on it ? -Jessie

A: Hi Jessie, thanks for your question. Yes, if you drink two servings per day, you'll stay in ketosis for up to 24 hours. If you're also eating a low carb diet, you may be able to stay in ketosis with one serving if you eat really clean. For best results, you can start with one serving and see how you do, and add a second serving if you need to see increased results. I've always done really well with one serving per day, but I eat a fairly clean diet and exercise regularly. If you have more than 10 lbs to lose, I recommend working your way up to two servings per day until you reach your goal weight. Contact me here via private email if I can answer any other questions. Thanks! ~Rachel P.S. Watch the video that's on the Bio Max information page, it really explains ketosis well and it's easy to follow (there's a small box above the order box, just click "watch video.")

Q: I’m confused about which ketones to drink? There seems to be so many options (which is good!), but how do I know which ones to drink and when? -Melissa

A: Hi Melissa! They're all good, Pruvit doesn't make a bad flavor! They just released Keto Splash to the permanent menu today! It's a watermelon-grapefruit Max formula, light and citrusy. Tastes great and has some extra B vitamins. I usually advise people to grab a couple flavors so you can mix it up. Raspberry Lemonade is also one of my faves, but they are all very good in flavor and easy to drink. You can drink it in the morning, or an hour before your workout, and you can slowly add another half serving in the afternoon and work up to 2 a day if you'd like to stay in ketosis longer. There's really no right or wrong way, drink it when you feel you need the energy! Feel free to email me at [email protected] if you'd like to chat more or if I can help. Thanks! Rachel

Q: For fasting, you stated that you drink keto kreme in the morning - I thought the keto kreme will break your fast. Please clarify. -geri

A: Hi Geri, some people do "fast" even while having a fat coffee in the morning since fats naturally increase your ketone production. Sometimes I'll just have the ketones and not the Kreme. You could try it both ways. The fats will really fill you up so it makes it much easier to fast if you typically get hungry. If you don't have an issue with hunger, you could just drink the ketones then when you get hungry drink the Kreme.  The new Kreme has so many benefits and I get so full when I drink it... Good luck!

Q: Hi there, I worry about what happens when you stop drinking Keto and if significant rebound weight gain is seen? I am very active and work out 6 days a week but struggle to tighten up my mid section. I am interested in Keto but worry if I get the results I want if you continue to drink it or if you stop you will gain all the weight back plus some. -Maggie

A: Hi Maggie, no not at all, there is no  rebound weight gain. So a year ago, I started drinking Keto and that's when I lost 12 lbs....I was quite happy so eventually I slowed down drinking it and then stopped for a while. I continued to eat pretty good and I'm active and I didn't gain any weight back. It wasn't until I started eat a bunch of crap like pizza my husband ordered, and went nuts over the holidays that I did start gaining some back. It wasn't stopping the Keto that made me gain weight, it was all the crap I was eating. I should have kept drinking it and I wouldn't have gained it back!! So, this time around now I'm on the Maui Punch and I've lost 6 lbs in the past WEEK. I'm more focused this time, I know a lot more about the other health benefits of the product besides weight loss (like fighting inflammation because I have other issues with that). I don't plan on stopping drinking it anytime soon. Once I lose the weight I want I will probably go into my own maintenance mode. But absolutely there is no "rebound" weight gain if you stop drinking it. Good luck and let me know if you have any more questions. ~Rachel

Q: Hi Rachael, I've started one full week on keto//os orange dream but I did not start half portions for the first few days.I don't feel nauseous but did I do it wrong?Also I totally have been eating normal, carbs and all, no immediate change in my diet, maybe it will change from tomorrow my second week on keto//os? -Jarrod

A: Hey Jarrod, you're fine! If you didn't get an upset stomach at all from not starting slowly, you're probably just fine with it, some people are more sensitive. I would continue to drink it daily. You should feel your appetite suppressed and fewer carb cravings. Keep it up! Rachel

Q: Which one of the 3 flavors is the best for weight loss -Valerie

A: Hi Valerie, this is a question I get a lot and there is no definitive answer because all three flavors work! I find that the Bio Max works better than the Orange, it seems to give me more energy and I'm rarely hungry on it. However, the orange can give some people an "edge" on appetite suppression since it contains the MCT oils. Others don't like it as much since it's "heavier." The chocolate is great for anyone who has a sensitive stomach since it contains a prebiotic. It's really a personal preference to taste. The Bio Max formula does provide an edge since the formula was improved and is more bioavailable (more easily absorbed) by the body. I think this is why I love it so much, and it's also "lighter" in taste. So to answer your question, they will all put you into ketosis, give you energy, burn fat, give you better focus, and fight inflammation - but which flavor you will love the best is a personal preference. Based on feedback, most people seem to love the Maui, followed by orange or chocolate. It's really a toss up and you can't go wrong. Since you're wanting to lose weight - and the recommended dose to stay in ketosis for up to 24 hours is to drink TWO per day, I would buy a little of each of the two flavors you think you will like the best! :) Rachel

I'll copy and paste what I just wrote here, you probably didn't see it yet. Let me know if you have more questions.

Q: does the decaf work as well as the regular does -Linda

A: Hi Linda, Yes the decaf has the same amount of ketones it's just without the caffeine so you won't get the extra caffeine boost but you'll still get energy by way of the ketones. The brain loves ketones so you'll feel the mental energy and focus from the decaf and it still works the same to put you into ketosis to burn fat and experience all the other health benefits. Let me know if you have any more questions. ~Rachel

Q: How long do you stay in ketosis after 1 full dose of ketone os, orange ? -Marilyn Chambless

A: Marilyn, you should stay in ketosis for up to 24 hours. To be sure to stay there 24 hours, I believe you need to drink 2 per day. That's the recommended dose. I got by with one but I didn't have a lot of weight to lose. So depends on your current goals. Thanks for your question! Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

Q: My state of ketosis only last a few hours after taking 1 full scoop of ketone os orange . Why is that I wonder ? Bennett taking every morning for about almost 2 months. Have only lost 10 lbs. I am thinkin that I won't order next month. Not being ugly but just not worth the price for the results . -Marilyn Chambless

A: Marilyn, if you have more than 10 lbs to lose, you should be drinking it 2x per day. Congrats though on 10 lbs lost! Hey, that's progress! Slow and steady sometimes is the best kind of weight loss. I can understand that you're frustrated after two months and not seeing a bigger loss, but I would keep at it and shake things up. Have you cleaned up your diet? Can you cut carbs at night? Are you exercising? Drink the charged in the morning and a decaf Keto in the afternoon and see if that boosts your results.

Q: Hi, so I was wondering how much water you should drink in a day? Will exercising help also with the drink, along with eating right? How much weight should you loose in a week? -Christine

A: Hi Christine, you should always aim to drink half of your body weight in ounces per day in fresh water. I'm 130 so my goal is 65 ounces. I don't always do it, but that's what my goal is! :) Exercising always helps because it increases your metabolism, and eating a low carb diet is best. I lost 6 lbs in my first two weeks on Keto. Thanks! Rachel

Q: I have read elsewhere that keto is good for kids too. I have also read that it can help with symptoms of ADD. Do you have any extra input on this topic. Thanks -Chris

A: Hi Chris, yes it's safe for kids too (decaf), it's also safe for pregnant and nursing mothers. There's a lot of research about the ketogenic diet specifically being good to help with ADD symptoms. I'm not aware of Pruvit publishing anything specific for this condition but Keto OS puts you into ketosis and it's the state of ketosis that provides benefits from being on the diet, so it's same principle. My sister has epilepsy and this is a supplement that she's able to take. The ketogenic diet was hard for her to follow. I would give it a try with the decaf and see how your child does. Keep me posted I'd love to know if it helps!  Rachel

Q: I have osteoarthritis and don't exercise. Is exercise necessary for this product to work? -Tammy

A: Tammy, no you don't have to exercise to see results. Keto puts your body into ketosis so you're burning fat instead of carbs. Of course exercise would help anyone's cause trying to lose weight, but I can understand your situation. Rachel

Q: I don't normally eat alot of fats in my diet. Is eating fresh fruit and salads during the day going to diminish the effect of the Keto OS? Also, can I mix it with almond milk and alittle yogurt for a breakfast drink? -Michele

A: Michele, eating salads and fruit is great, don't stop doing that. Just drizzle some olive oil and balsamic on your salad and maybe add some avocado if you like it, and that's going to give you a healthy serving of good fat right there. So will the almond milk in the morning. It definitely won't diminish the Keto. They only recommend a higher fat diet for best results. Good luck! Rachel

Q: im 66 years old am type 2 diabetic ,am on anti seizer medication,active bladder medication, high blood pressure medication and 70 lb. overwieght,live under a great deal of stress.am very anxious to use this product,is it safe in your opinion to take ketoosÉ -marge

A: Hi Marge, there's a lot of research that it's good for diabetics, and as far as seizures, my sister has epilepsy and she was fine taking it, her Dr.'s said a ketogenic diet was best, but taking ketones is a little different. With so many medications and things going on, it's really best to check with your Dr. I am not a Dr. and I can't tell you for certain if this is a safe supplement for you to take. If you do decide to try it, get the caffeine free (Non-charged) version. If you're anxious already, then too much caffeine with exacerbate that. Start very slowly also, take half a pack per day for four or five days before you drink a full pack. Good luck and let me know how it goes if you do decide to try. Rachel

Q: Hi, I need a product that is diary and gluten free, but I can't tolerate caffeine, am I out of luck? -Lisa

A: Hi Lisa, I believe we emailed yesterday, but I'll answer this question so others can see. Currently, the Chocolate Swirl is both gluten-free and dairy-free, and so is the new BioMax fruit punch flavor. However, neither one of these comes in a decaf version yet. Only the Orange Dream comes in both charged and decaf. The Orange dream is gluten-free but it has a small amount of dairy. I hope that they'll come out with a decaf version of the Chocolate Swirl soon! Rachel

Q: I am on blood pressure medicine. Can I use this? Also, does this help reduce cholesterol? -Nancy

A: Nancy, blood pressure medicine is such a sensitive thing. I would definitely run this by your Dr. and see what he thinks. I would think the non-caff version would be fine but it's always best to check when you're on other meds. I don't think it's a cholesterol reducer by nature. Rachel

Q: Do you know anything about mixing the drinks with high pH water instead of regular water and any advantages/disadvantages? -Jeanette

A: Jeanette, I have heard of drinking alkaline water since it has more minerals but haven't heard anything specific to using it with Keto OS.  Just getting enough fresh water in is a battle, and I just drink the water from my fridge that is filtered. You're better off trying to eat a more alkaline diet in general and avoid acidic foods. :) Just drink the keto the rest will follow. Rachel

Q: So I have done keto in the past and lost weight. But have a hard time restarting the lifestyle again. If I was to drink this daily for a few days and eat low carb would my body remain in ketosis after I stopped drinking the keto/os? Very expensive but if this would kickstart I would be very willing to try the sample pack to get my body use to ketosis again and avoid the keto flu. -Meghan

A: Hey Meghan, you and me both need to get back on it! ;) I've been slacking and I've gained a little weight back. Just like you, I'm kind of dragging my feet committing to drinking it again, even when I know it works!! I've just been in a rut. So to answer your question, no you won't stay in ketosis. If you're drinking the full serving of two packs per day, you'll stay in ketosis for up to 24 hours, and that's it. That's why you need to drink it every day. Eating low carb will definitely help with weight loss, just make sure you're also eating healthy fats i.e. avacado, salmon, olive oil, nuts, etc. That sucks that you got the Keto flu....I never got it. Be sure and start slowly if you restart. Drink half a pack per day until you no longer feel sick then drink a full pack, then when you add the afternoon dose, do the same. Add half pack, etc for a few days until you feel fine.  Let me know if you have more questions. p.s. they no longer sell those 3 sample packs. The smallest order would be a 15 pack. Thanks! Rachel

Q: Should you take this instead of breakfast or as well as brekkie? I've been told it can be taken instead of brekkie but that goes against my thoughts that brekkie is the most important meal to have.. what do you think? thanks! -Mia

A: Hi Mia, I've done it both ways. With intermittent fasting method, you would wake up, have your coffee (if you drink coffee), have a fresh glass of plain water, and then drink a serving of Keto OS. Then, don't eat until you're hungry, which for me was around 1:00. However, I've also done it to where I eat brekkie, then about an hour after that drink my Keto. Both methods work, so do what makes you feel best. I'm not a huge breakfast person, and usually eat a very late breakfast anyhow. But don't be afraid to eat your healthy breakfast and then drink keto, you're still supplying ketones to your blood so it's going to help you switch to fat burning mode instead of using carbs and sugar. Thanks for your question, it's a good one. ~Rachel

Q: My issue is blood sugar levels. What product would you recommend. I am on a high fat low carb diet. I stopped taking my insulin. Want to be on a keytone diet with IF. -Jerry

A: Hi Jerry, thanks for your question. All of the Keto Max and new Keto NAT have the same ingredients - so really it's just about choosing a flavor you think you'll enjoy. You can use any of them for intermittent fasting. The new NAT Raspberry Lemonade and NAT Splash are very good, definitely fan favorites! All of the Max flavors will soon be NAT - it's basically a Max upgrade to the new fermented, all natural ketones. You may want to include either the MCT//143 or the Keto Kreme in your coffee or tea in addition to a Keto Max/NAT as your daily routine to help increase those healthy fats and for fasting. This is what I do and it works very well. I usually don't eat my first meal until about 2pm every day. Ketones are on sale today if you'd like to get started, you can visit my Pruvit website here. Thanks! ~Rachel

Q: When I eat breakfast in the morning how long should I wait to drink my max? Thanks in advance! -Sarah walter

A: Hi Sarah, isn't the Bio Max awesome? I love the flavor! Just tried it yesterday for the first time.  To me it's a little easier to drink. I actually drank mine before breakfast today and ate like an hour after. If you eat first, maybe just wait for it to settle about 15 minutes. There's no right or wrong way to do it really. I just drank mine earlier today because I was a little hopped up last night because I drank it at 3. I need the decaf in the afternoon ;) Good luck! ~Rachel

Q: Which product is better providing energy during an evening run? Does it cause the heart to beat fast? -Mary

A: Mary, you don't get jittery on Keto OS, even with the charged with caffeine. It's more of an alert, focused kind of energy - you just feel great! Ketones are a great fuel source, and it does come in caffeine free. I usually drink a charged in the morning and that keeps me going until afternoon. If I'm going to go do an evening or late afternoon workout, I'll usually drink another half a pack of the charged or a full decaf. If you don't want to drink it in the morning, and you're just looking for an energy boost, I would recommend drinking a charged one early afternoon like around 2 and you'll still have plenty of energy for your evening run. I say 2 because if you're sensitive to caffeine, I would try to limit caffeine after 2 or 3 so you don't have trouble sleeping. I drink pretty much nothing but the Bio Max Maui punch now. I just think it tastes better and is easier to drink, and I get the best energy from the Bio Max. Good luck, and let me know if you have any more questions. Rachel

Q: I started taking 7 days ago.., I haven't noticed weight loss but have noticed lack of appetite. Recommendations? -Lyndsay

A: Hi Lyndsay, at this point I'd say keep drinking it and trust the process, because it can take some a little longer to fully Keto adapt. And I always recommend drinking two per day if you have more than 10 lbs to lose. I also recommend eating a low carb diet, especially starting out. You'll be fueled on ketones so you should not have those carb crashes and if it's suppressing your appetite then it's doing it's job. Only eat when you're hungry and a little intermittent fasting is great to do. Email me at [email protected] if you'd like to chat more in private. I also have a ketogenic eating guide I could send you if you're interested! :) Thanks, Rachel

Q: Leg cramps...can’t sleep. What can I do? -Donna

A: Hi Donna! If you're following a low carb or ketogenic diet and drinking ketones (or any of the three), you need to take an electrolyte supplement or at least magnesium at night before bed. The Mitoplex is great, this is Pruvit's new electrolyte powder and is has everything you need. The ketones themselves have all the sodium content we need, and the Mitoplex gives us everything else plus the DNA repair which is great for anti-aging. I mix them right into my ketones daily and it's helped a lot just to feel more balanced. I get restless legs at night sometimes and I haven't experienced that since I've added electrolytes. If you're working out it's even more important. But leg cramps can definitely be a sign of dehydration and/or being low on minerals. Good luck! Rachel

Q: is it safe for people who have had a heart attack in the past and are on low dose blood pressure meds? -Barby

A: Hi Barby, thanks for your question. I'm going to link you to an interesting article posted on the Pruvit Keto OS site called "It's not Salt's Fault." They discuss the importance of salt in the diet and how it gets a bad rap. The problem people usually have with too much sodium is when they eat a very high carb diet, your body hangs on to the sodium. Eating a low carb, high fat, moderate protein diet (which is a ketogenic diet) flushes your body and you typically experience fluid loss, and with it you lose salt. It's actually recommended to add Himalayan salt to your diet when you're eating a ketogenic diet or drinking Keto OS. Keto OS is high in sodium but this is the reason why. It's important to keep your electrolytes up when following a ketogenic diet or drinking Keto OS.  Hope this helps but it may be a good idea to run it by your Dr. just to make sure it would be suitable for you. Pruvit promotes their products as being extremely safe and helping with many health ailments, but you may have a delicate situation and I may not be aware of everything that's happened with you so it's always better to just double check. Nothing that I know of would lead me to believe it would unsafe for you to try however. Keto OS can help burn fat so I would think if you're overweight (I don't know if you are), then losing weight would be overall better for your health and maybe over time you could actually lower your blood pressure medication. I hope that's the case for you! Here is another source you may be interested in reading: Pruvit Keto OS FAQ.

Good luck! ~Rachel

Q: Hi! I wanted to know is this something you will have to drink forever in order to stay in the state of ketosis? Or after you have reached your goal do you tend to not need to drink it every day and maybe every few days? Just wondering how the body maintains ketosis. Thanks! -Nicole

A: Hi Nicole, that's a very good question! To get into ketosis by way of diet alone (following a strict ketogenic diet of low carbs/high fats/moderate protein) it can take 3-7 days and that depends on the individual, what you're eating and how often you exercise. By low carbs I mean less than 20 grams per day. To give you an example of how few carbs that is, there are about 45 grams of carbs in one cup of rice! So, when I say the ketogenic diet has low carbs, I am not kidding! :) My point is, it's very difficult for some people to adhere to such a strict diet. That's where the Keto OS supplement fills the gap. If you're drinking two servings of keto per day you can stay in ketosis for up to 24 hours, even if you're not following a ketogenic diet. Your body will be flooded with ketones and switch to burning fat instead of carbs. To further answer your question, you don't have to drink it forever but some people have made it part of their ketogenic lifestyle or for health reasons. If you drank the Keto OS and reached your goal weight, and stopped drinking it, you would only gain weight if you started eating poorly and had an excess of calories which will of course cause you to gain weight. You could continue with a low carb diet and keep the weight off. The body will only maintain being in the state of ketosis by either a) following a strict ketogenic diet or b)drinking Keto OS. You don't "have" to change your diet to reap the health and weight loss benefits of drinking Keto Os. Will you get better/quicker results if you follow a lower carb diet or a ketogenic diet? Absolutely! I think most people, if they're willing to spend money on an excellent health supplement, they're naturally going to want to eat better. There so many additional reasons to drink the Keto, it gives you such good energy all day, and helps you focus tremendously, and fights inflammation in the body. I've lost weight and maintained by drinking mostly one serving of Keto OS per day, but my diet is fairly clean and I exercise regularly.  I hope I've answered your question...please contact me here privately if you wish to talk about this more! :) Thanks for your great question! ~Rachel

A: Hi Patricia, we spoke by email today, nice to meet you! But I'll answer you here as well so others can see. Keto OS can help some people reduce their migraines since it has anti-inflammatory properties and it can also help you sleep better. And yes, it does promote fat loss since being in ketosis you're burning fat instead of carbs (sugar). And drinking one serving puts you into ketosis within 30 minutes even if you're NOT eating a ketogenic diet, which is awesome! That's a very hard diet to follow. Hope this helps and have a great day!

Q: After drinking the keto os how long do you stay in ketos ?what happens to those carbs that are in your system? Do they come back after the drink is out of your system? -Rhonda

A: Rhonda, if you drink two servings per day you can stay in ketosis for up to 24 hours. So one serving will usually keep you there most of the day. In ketosis your body switches to burning fat for fuel as its primary source, but the body always has a secondary source, and it can and does "dual fuel" as well on carbs in your system so you would just expel them. Hope this helps! Rachel

Q: Has anyone else every had issues with constipation will taking these products? A freind gave me some samples and this is the 3rd day using it. I have never had an issue with constipation but am definitely experiencing some problems. \could be a fluke and its just me but thought I'd ask. -Michelle

A: Hi Michelle, thanks for your message. Did you also change your diet to a ketogenic high fat diet? That's usually the culprit, when you increase your fats and don't get enough veggies to process them. You could also be dehydrated. Ketosis flushes your body of water and with that goes electrolytes, so you need to be sure and drink plenty of fresh water and it's a good idea to add a little Himalayan salt to your foods. But if you're constipated, it's not from the ketones themselves, but either not enough fiber and/or water. Honestly usually ketones have the opposite effect when you're just getting started - it can clean you out a bit. Good luck! Rachel

Q: How many comes in a box and how much is it and how much weight will I lose in a month -Erica

A: Erica, thanks for your message. I think a good start would be to go back and read my personal review of Keto OS. I do talk about the pricing and quantities at the bottom. Or, you can visit the Keto OS website and take a look at their packages. Typical price would be $160 for 30 servings for the Chocolate Swirl flavor or $85 for 15 servings. Same price for the Orange Dream flavor. Everyone's different, but I lost about 10 lbs in 3 weeks. It all depends on how clean you eat, and how active you are. I'd say the average person should be able to easily lose at least 10 lbs in one month if they drink it daily. I know that I didn't change my diet all that much when I lost the weight, had I been eating really clean and drinking it I know I would have lost more, probably 15 if I had to guess.  ~Rachel

Q: Does Keto OS help with wt loss if someone is on an antianxiety med? -T

A: H T, if you're sensitive to caffeine (or caffeine increases your anxiety) it would be best to choose the decaf version, it works just as well! I do love the energy of the charged, but you still get energy from the decaf. The Charged does not give me the jitters at all, so you may be fine with it. It has about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee...so if you already drink coffee, you'd probably be fine.

Q: I’ve been using the Pruvit drinks but I’ve always been a little bit confused about the intermittent fasting while drinking the drinks. If I have a drink for breakfast and one around 3 PM is that considered intermittent fasting? I believe that I read you could have bulletproof coffee in the morning and that Is still intermittent fasting but I wasn’t sure about the Pruvit OS or the max. Sometimes in the morning I put some heavy whipping cream in with my drink is that OK and is that still considered intermittent fasting? Thanks -Lora

A: Hi Lora, intermittent fasting is when you eat within a window - say from 12:00 pm - 8:00pm. Keto Max/NAT does not break a fast, so what most people do is wake up and drink their ketones on an empty stomach and fast until anywhere from 11:00 am and 1:00 pm. Then either eat a low carb meal - or - drink a Keto Kreme mixed with coffee. The fats in the Keto Kreme do technically break a fast so if you want to remain in a true fasted state it's best to drink the ketones in the morning.

However, some people do enjoy "fat fasting" which is when you wake up and have a fat coffee (Keto Kreme) and then fast on that until you get hungry and then either a) drink ketones and continue fasting longer until you get hungry or b) eat a low carb meal and then drink ketones after lunch.

I've done fat fasting on coffee with the MCT//143 for a couple years now and it's always worked very well for me. It keeps me full and keeps my brain sharp, and then I drink Keto Max around 2. But I am going to switch things up soon and go back to black coffee then ketones so I stay in a fasted state until I decide to eat, and then drink a second serving of Max in the afternoon. I do feel much better when I drink two servings a day.

So to answer your question, the heavy whipping cream will technically break your fast. Can you still intermittent fast this way? Sure, if you're seeing results and you feeling good then there's no reason not to. Having those fats in the morning does help your liver make it's own ketones.  It's just a different way of doing things.

Simply drinking your ketones in the morning and again at 3 doesn't mean you're intermittent fasting, there would have to be a withholding of food, and it's also known as time restricted eating. I would try both ways and see which way you feel best, and which yields better results. Hope this makes sense - Good luck! xo Rachel

Q: Can you drink alcohol while using the keto os? Our group has happy hour daily. Just wondered what effect this would have. I also exercise 6 days a week and eat a healthy diet but do not follow the keto diet. -Daralyn

A: Daralyn, there are no rules that say you can't drink, unless you're following a strict keto diet (which you're not). Drinking keto will still keep you in ketosis during the day until you drink alcohol. I think you'll find that ketones make you want to drink a lot less. Your brain loves ketones and you'll feel very satiated and happy on ketones, which makes the desire to drink less. Not sure if that's a goal of yours, but just thought I'd mention it. I used to drink a cocktail every night, now I drink maybe one per week...I just don't crave it anymore an I feel much better.  I think you'll will still gain a huge benefit from drinking ketones daily. Good luck! ~Rachel

Q: I started pruvit 3 weeks ago. I take 2 a day. I wanted to lose weight. I have changed some of my diet. How long before I see and feel changes? -Donna

A: Hi Donna, everyone's experience is different but most people "feel" the energy either after their first serving, or it can take a week or so to fully keto adapt to really feel it. If you're not losing weight on two keto's a day, then I have to think your diet is the culprit. I would track your foods in My Fitness pal or another free app for a week or so and see how many calories you're taking in. A low carb diet works best for weight loss with ketones, but if you're still taking in too many calories and not creating an energy deficit this could be why. Also, exercise is important, even walking is good. Good luck! Rachel

Q: Interested in trying ketones. Are they all sweet? Don’t have a sweet tooth at all, even the smallest amount of stevia will give me headache. -Sarah

A: Hi Sarah, thanks for your interest. Yes they are all sweetened with Stevia. Ketones are BHB salts so they have to be masked with a sweetener to taste good, otherwise they'd taste too salty. Maybe just try a 5 day experience to sample some of the flavors to see how you like them. I love how they taste! I'm not a fan of stevia, I never use it in anything else but the ketones taste delicious. Thanks! Rachel

Q: I don't like the taste at all. What can I mix it with to taste better? I used the orange creme and water -Cheri

A: Cheri, here are some recipes for Keto OS. Try mixing it with LaCroix or adding fresh lemon juice. Orange is my least favorite flavor because it tastes a bit thick since it contains the MCT oils. I've switched to the Maui punch and I like it better! Rachel

Q: How effective is the Keto Max Raspberry Lemonade Max caffeine free? Does it still give you energy and assist with my concentration levels? Is it as effective as the Keto raspberry lemonade Max? -Rosa

A: Hi Rosa, the decaf still puts you into ketosis just like the charged and you will still experience the benefits such as increased focus, better mood, energy, fat loss. Decaf still gives you a little pep since it is a fuel source but not quite like the charged with caffeine. Caffeine also helps with appetite so paired with the ketones it works even better in my opinion. But if you can't have caffeine, the decaf is still an amazing product! Thanks for your question, Rachel

Many kids need help with controlling appetite and of course all the other benefits that come with drinking ketones, energy, focus, better sleep, etc. If you'd like to email me privately I can add you to our keto group so you can see how other mom's use it for their kids.

Q: Can you mix the ketos cream with the keto//os or should you drink them separately. If you drink them separately how long should you wait before you drink the next one. How long does your body stay in ketosis until you kicked it out of it? Thanks. -Brittany

A: Hi Brittany, I do know people who mix the keto kreme with the chocolate swirl and add a little heavy whipping cream and coffee and ice to make a big iced coffee, that may be too sweet but she seems to love it! Normally you would drink the keto kreme in your coffee, then once you start to feel a little hungry drink a Keto OS. Two Keto OS's per day is optimal if you want to stay in ketosis up to 24 hours. If you drink a keto kreme that's going to help promote the production of ketones in your liver, and then drinking the Keto OS you're putting exogenous ketones in your body. You'd have to test on a keto stick, but you should stay in ketosis most of the day! It would depend a lot on your diet. If you eat a carb-rich meal for lunch or dinner, then your body will probably get kicked out a little faster even though it can dual fuel on both fat and glucose. Hope this helps! ~Rachel

Q: what is the difference between 3.0 and 2.1 producks -camille

A: Hi Camille, thanks for your question. The Orange Dream 2.1 is the latest version of the Orange (the original one when they launched was 2.0). The Chocolate Swirl is the 3.0 which is a different formula from the orange. They both contain the ketone/salt blend but the orange contains MCT oils (from coconuts) and the chocolate does not. The chocolate contains a pre-biotic also so it's better for anyone with stomach issues. They both give you all the benefits it's just formulated a bit differently. The Bio Max Maui punch is the newest flavor and most advanced blend and most bioavailable amount of ketones. Bioavailable just means your body can probably absorb and use more. I drink the Bio Max Maui punch, I love the flavor and it gives me great energy all day and for workouts. Let me know if you have any questions. Did you read the whole review? I do talk about each flavor in great detail if you'd like to read some more. thanks! Rachel

Q: How often and when do you drink these? I know I have to watch my budget but I've heard people drink a few a day. Is that what these testimonies below do? Looking to get an idea to see and feel results. Thank you! -Dori

A: Hi Dori, the therapeutic dose is one per day, and two is optimal. I normally do MCT in my coffee each morning and do very well on one Keto-OS per day. Everyone is different. I would try one a day and see how you do, one will last 5-8 hours depending on what you eat. It's best to eat low carb for weight loss, but you don't have to follow a strict ketogenic diet. Thanks!

Q: I'm so disappointed. I've been drinking this for 2 months, along with a low carb paleo diet and daily exercise and so far- not one pound. How is that even possible??? And I've had a headache pretty much every day since starting. -Jamie

A: Jamie, did you take your measurements before starting? I would be willing to be you've lost fat and inches, and you've put on lean muscle so the scale hasn't moved. Are your clothes fitting differently? This has happened to me before, and if you're just starting a new exercise program it's a very common scenario. I know it may seem frustrating, but do you think this could be what's happening? Also, are you drinking plenty of fresh water? This can stall weight loss, be sure and drink half of your weight in ounces in fresh water per day. And one more question, are you drinking one or two per day? Two per day yields the best results. Try switching up your diet to ketogenic and see if that helps. I know paleo is similar but I believe they allow fruit? Good luck and you can pm me at [email protected]com if you'd like to talk about this more in private. Thanks! Rachel

Q: Will I have to continue to take KETO's? Is this something that I will have to take for years to come? -Holly

A: Hi Holly, you don't have to drink it forever if you can eat a clean diet and continue exercising. There is no rebound weight gain effect from stopping Keto OS, the only thing that will make you gain weight is if you start eating a high carb diet with unhealthy choices and don't exercise.  You can certainly drink Keto OS until you reach your goal weight and then taper off. I have no plans to stop drinking it anytime soon, I love the energy, focus and anti-inflammatory benefits way too much. And it helps me eat smaller meals since it suppresses my appetite. It's completely healthy to continue drinking it for as long as you need to or feel like it. Some people are on it for life for health benefits. Good luck! Rachel

Q: I want to start the Ketos program but I had a full hysterectomy in November and I am taking B-12 Magnesium and wear a hormone estropatch would that be ok is anyone else doing this that has a patch on? Thanks -Nancy

A: Hi Nancy, Keto OS does not contain any hormones and will not interfere with any therapy. I want to link you to the Pruvit article here on hormones. Keto (decaf) is also safe for pregnant and nursing mothers. Ketones naturally exist in the body so it's a very safe supplement. Magnesium is a recommended supplement to take (I take it) when following a ketogenic lifestyle since it can flush the body of excess water and with that goes electrolytes. Western doctors don't seem to like to give a thumbs up or thumbs down to any supplements, but it wouldn't hurt to ask if it makes you feel more comfortable. I hope you can give it a try. I'll link my Pruvit website here and if you scroll all the way down to the bottom and click on Help Center/Health there are a ton of informative articles on Keto and health. I've felt a lot better overall and I've been on Keto six months. It helps me keep a more level mood and helps keep me balanced. Thanks! ~Rachel

Q: What is the difference in you taking the Keto Orange Dream and the Keto Max drink packets? I saw they are more expensive. I recently purchased the Orange dream. But may need a little more energizing drink to keep me going. -Suzette

A: Hi Suzette, the Keto Orange Dream is the only flavor that contains MCT which aids in feeling full and fat burning. But I love the Keto Max flavors - they are 40% stronger. They are more bioavailable, and you have a quicker spike and quicker uptake in the ketones to your blood. If you need energy, I would definitely suggest trying the Max. I love the Maui Punch and the Raspberry Lemonade. I also just add a tsp of the MCT//143 right into my Max. I get a lot more energy from the Max, it's all I drink! :) You can check out the Keto Max flavors here, there are three. Let me know if I can help! Thank you, Rachel

Q: Hi I need to have something in my stomach for breakfast, or I feel faint, so I usually eat a bowl of whole grain Cheerios. Then I have a coffee and then at about 10:30have my Keto. An hour later I have lunch. I feel like this is not a good time for my drink. I don’t have a choice as to when I have lunch, but if I don’t eat I will feel faint again before work is done. Confused? -Teresa

A: Hi Teresa, thanks for your question. Sounds like your body is used to running on carbs and sugar (carbs are sugar - your blood reacts the same to eating Cheerios since those carbs turn to glucose in your blood)... your probably getting insulin spikes which is making you crash.

Instead of Cheerios try eating some eggs (or some other Keto type meal with plenty of protein and maybe some fats like cheese), then drinking your ketones and waiting a little longer to eat lunch. Another way you could try it, if you really need food in the mornings is eating a keto/low carb/higher fat breakfast, having a low carb lunch and THEN drinking ketones around 1:00 so you have energy for the rest of the day. This is when I drink mine although I fast all morning.

Ketones are a fuel source so they should be helping to reduce those carb cravings so you can make better food choices. It may be that you just haven't been drinking them long enough to experience the full effect, or your body is just used to the sugar, but the goal of either a lower carb or a more Keto (low carb/high fat) diet should keep you sustained a lot longer than cereal without the spikes.

Try the afternoon time and see if that helps, you don't have to drink them in the morning and if you're eating right after you're not really utilizing the ketones best. Good luck! Rachel

Q: Hi I just received an envelope of the chocolate swirl caffeine charged by a friend who is a trainer and he advised me it is safe to take during pregnancy.. Is this true? Also I have only had half the envelope and I feel like I've had 20 cups of coffee and I usually have a really strong coffee daily... Thanks -Lisa

A: Hi Lisa, Thanks for your question. I do have a friend who drank it all through her pregnancy, she's also a promoter of the product. They do say it's safe for pregnancy however I would definitely drink the DECAF. Caffeine is not good when you're pregnant. I'm surprised your trainer gave you the caffeinated version. Especially if it made you feel like you drank 20 cups of coffee, that's probably not good for you. You don't want your heart racing or your blood pressure to rise. Good luck, get the non-charged.

Q: I have been taking the supplement for two weeks and had no results. I feel great but no weight loss. I have been careful about eating a reduced carb diet and walk about two miles daily. Any thoughts? I take two scoops daily of the orange cream. One in the morning and one mid afternoon. Thanks Kelly -Kelly

A: Hi Kelly, I'm glad your feeling great, but I'm sorry you haven't had any weight loss - that's frustrating. Are you eating also high fats along with low carb? You could try the intermittent fasting method which is what I do.  I drink coffee, then drink Bio Max then I don't eat until I'm hungry which is usually around 12:30. Drink a second keto around 3, then eat a small snack/lunch around 4 and then dinner by 8. Also make sure you're drinking plenty of water - it's so important. You should be drinking half of your weight in ounces of fresh water daily. Sometimes it feels forced, but when you're drinking keto it's flushing your body of fat and if there's no water to flush out what you're working so hard to get rid of, it won't have anywhere to go but to stay in you. I hope you can make some tweaks and keep going on it. Let me know if I can help further. Thanks! Rachel

Q: Is this product safe for pregnant women and their unborn child? -Monica

A: Monica, yes it is. If you visit the official Keto OS website  and scroll all the way down to the very bottom of the page and click on "Browse FAQ" this very same question is asked. I'm going to copy and paste the answer here. I do know a girl who drinks it while being pregnant, she's actually one of the promoters.
KETO//OS is quite safe during pregnancy and while breastfeeding. It is recommended to choose the caffeine free Keto//OS and drink plenty of water. Ketones naturally exist in the body, and are created as a normal process of fat metabolism. KETO//OS simply provides these ketones from an exogenous source, but they have the same beneficial impact. However, if you suffer from any medical conditions, it is always safe to consult your health care provider prior to starting any new nutritional supplement.

Q: I started on Keto OS approx. 2 weeks ago, I have been eating a low carb diet, and I have seen no results at all. I like the product. I need to know what I maybe doing wrong. Help!! -Eva

A: Eva, there is a Keto adaptation period and it's different for everyone. Have you felt other benefits such as energy or better sleep? Inflammation is a big one and that's happening on a cellular level which you can't see right away. Trust the process and eventually you'll adapt. Sometimes women hang on to the sodium for a couple weeks and the fat cells fill up with water, then there will be a "whoosh" effect when those fat cells will collapse and you'll see the scale go down. Also, are you drinking one or two per day? If you have more than 10 lbs to lose, I always recommend drinking two per day which is the optimal dose. One will keep you in ketosis roughly 6 hours and is therapeutic but if fat loss/weight loss is your goal, try drinking two per day. Or try adding the Keto Kreme in the morning and waiting until you're hungry and drink your Keto OS or Max and then wait to eat. Intermittent fasting can really get you burning. Don't give up yet! My brother took 3 weeks to adapt then went on to lose 18 lbs the following month. ~Rachel

Q: What foods can you eat and how many carbs or calories do you count? -Cindy Mitchell

A: Hi Cindy, I always tell people to just drink the Keto and the diet will follow naturally...it's going to make you eat less so it's easier to eat smaller, healthier meals.  If you want to eat a ketogenic diet the macro breakdown is 70% fat - 20% protein - 5% carbs, which is not a lot.

If you want to try to eat more ketogenic, try cutting your carb intake down slowly and increase your fats. It's a good idea to track your foods for a week or so in My Fitness Pal to get an idea of your calorie count plus it shows the macros. A pure ketogenic diet has 50 grams of carbs or less which is not a lot considering one cup of brown rice is about 45 grams.

The beauty of Keto OS is that you don't "have" to follow a strict ketogenic diet to experience the benefits of ketosis. Drinking exogenous ketones puts you into ketosis. However, if weight loss is your goal, then it is a good idea to try to eat a low carb, high fat diet for optimal results.

I also only eat two meals a day plus a snack...I do a lot of intermittent fasting so wake up and drink Keto and don't eat until I'm hungry and don't eat much after 8pm (on a normal schedule). Hope this helps and let me know if you have more questions or you can email me at [email protected] Thanks! ~Rachel

Q: I don't really understand what is in the Keto drink? Also what type of a diet goes along with the Keto drink etc. Is this like the Atkins diet ? I really need to loose weight for health reason . I am an older woman on meds and my metabolism is very slow . Before I go ahead and spend money to order this program I need all the information . Thank you for your help . -Helga

A: Hi Helga, Keto is "exogeneous Ketones." Your body naturally produces ketones but only during periods of fasting which we as Americans, never do. You don't have to change your diet to see results from Keto but you will get optimal weight loss results if you drink Keto OS twice per day and eat a low carb, higher fat diet. If you haven't already, go back and read my review - I really lay it out in detail there, how ketosis works, how keto works, etc. Thanks! Rachel

That's so strange! Maybe there are other factors at play because the charged has caffeine and ketones wake up the brain.

Q: does it really clear your skin and will it help to reduce puffiness under eyes also give me a flat stomach -donna newton

A: Hi Donna, yes it's really good for skin because ketones are anti-inflammatory, it's cured my blepharitis of the eye which is condition that causes a lot of redness, basically rosacea of the eye which is inflammation. It could help puffiness as well because it helps to push the water out of your body, for this reason it's very important to drink a lot of plain, fresh water and stay hydrated. Being in ketosis does help with fat loss, so it can help with the tummy. Rachel

Q: I am trying to lose some weight before my FET. Is this safe to take ? -Catherine

A: Hi Catherine, I think I responded by private email last night. I think this is something you'd want to run by your Dr. Most Dr.'s suggest that you don't take anything on top of the protocol they give you during fertility treatments. Decaf Keto OS is however safe for pregnant or nursing moms to take. I don't know that it would hurt anything to take prior, but I can't give medical advice and would hate to advise anything that could affect your outcome or even leave you wondering. Maybe you could just do a low carb diet to shed some weight, I know that's a lot easier drinking ketones but maybe you should wait. Good luck! Rachel

Q: Do ask- the mixes have to be mixed with only water, except the Kreme I saw was ok for coffee...? I need coffee in my life, lol. I'm drinking my first keto profit now, raspberry lemonade. I used only half the mix, which was suggested by my sister who bought a 10 day supply of various flavors for $80- is that standard pricing?

Thanks for sharing your journey. It's very inspiring. -Detta

A: Hi Detta, thanks for your message. Yes, typically you would just mix it with ice and water - I like to use a big shaker cup with about 18 oz water and ice just to get extra water in. Sometimes I'll drink it with just like 10 oz if I'm in a hurry or on my way to workout. You can also mix with sparkling water be careful shaking it - better to stir but a little hard to mix that way. Yes, Keto Kreme is meant to be mixed with hot coffee or tea, and some people even mix with Ketones to make like a creamy fat, keto drink. I prefer my ketones with water and the Keto Kreme with tea. Have you seen my Keto Samples blog? I have a 10 Day Rainbow package for $80 with all the standard flavors and I'll be making some updates to packages today so let me know if there's anything that interests you. Thanks! Rachel

p.s. be careful with too much protein as excess protein can turn to glucose. Keto diet is low carb, high fat and moderate protein. I usually eat about the size of a deck of cards when I have a serving of protein.

Q: I've heard the decaf Keto is safe for pregnant women, is this true? -Peggy

A: Hi Peggy, that's a great question. Yes, Keto OS decaf is safe for both pregnant and nursing mothers. I'll link to the research section here where they answer this specific question. I know a girl who drank the Chocolate Swirl decaf throughout her pregnancy and felt great...she also didn't gain that much - a healthy amount yes but not much excess. Also, my sister in law started the Orange decaf when her baby was about 8 months old and still nursing...it gives her energy and is helping her to eat less and burn fat to lose the baby weight. As soon as the baby weans from nursing, she's going to switch to charged. Thanks! ~Rachel

Q: Does it take some people several weeks to feel the benefits consistently on Pruvit ketones? -Karen

A: Hi Karen, most people feel it within 3-5 days, however everyones Keto adaptation period is different. My brother was a tough nut to crack! He seemed to not feel too much for several weeks, then called me one day and was like "wow, I feel different" he went on to lose 18 lbs the following month and his blood pressure went back to normal. It just depends on a lot of things, what kind of shape your in (health wise), how much inflammation you have/issues, and what you're eating. I would say it's best to continue because the results will come with consistency. If weight loss is your goal, it's really important to eat a low carb diet. Not saying your diet is bad (because I have no idea) but those who continue to eat a high carb diet may not see the results they are looking for. If you'd like to chat privately, send me an email to [email protected] I have an eating guide I can send you. Also, if you're just drinking one per day, you may need two. Good luck! Rachel

Q: Is this product gluten free?? -Louise

A: Hi Louise, thanks for your question. All 3 flavors, Orange, Chocolate and the new Bio Max fruit punch are ALL GLUTEN-FREE. The Chocolate and the Bio Max are also dairy-free and vegan as well as being gluten free. However, the Orange Flavor does have a small amount of dairy, but it's still gluten free. I thought I'd explain them all just in case.... Let me know if you have any more questions. Rachel

Q: Do I take my keto pills with breakfast in the morning and how often do I take the keto pills and a day -Lena

A: Hi Lena, go back and read my review when you have a chance, it really explains the whole process and how to use. Keto OS is not pills, it's a powder you mix with water and drink twice daily. It's best to drink it in the morning on an empty stomach and then again in the early afternoon. Great for fat loss, energy, anti-inflammation, and stabilizes blood sugar. It's the best supplement I've ever tried. I'm down 11 lbs and feel the daily benefits of being in ketosis. It's like a happy drink! Rachel

Q: Hi Rachel, I have 8-10lbs to lose so can I do a low-carb diet & use only one package per day & expect results I need? It's very expensive product ... Calc at $8 per package! -Joan

A: Joan, if you buy a 30 pack it's $5.30 per serving, or a 15 pack it would be about $5.60. No where near $8... You can definitely see results using one per day. Drink a full one on an empty stomach and don't eat until you're hungry, high fat, low carb diet is best! :) I usually tell people if they have more than 10 lbs to lose it's best to drink two servings per day. You should do fine! By the way, it's 20% off through midnight tonight only! Review the packages here. It's a good idea to jump on this, this will bring your cost down and you'd save over $20 on the 30 pack. ~Rachel

Q: I drink 1 full package of Max KETO-OS in morning how does it stay in my system? I take furerosomide every day ( water pill) do high blood pressure KETO-OS has 950 of sodium that's an awful lot people with high bp should not have added salt any suggestions? -Jackie Oliver

A: Hi Jackie, I'll link an article here on blood pressure from the Pruvit website. Keto OS has a diuretic affect so you need to drink plenty of water, this is why they add salt to Pruvit because since it flushes the body of water, with that goes sodium and electrolytes so that's why they add the sodium back in so you don't have to. Carbs make you hang on to salt which is the real enemy. Here's another article on salt called "It's Not Salt's Fault."  Best to talk to your Dr. before starting any supplement if you're on medication for high blood pressure. Rachel

Q: Does this stuff make you pee a lot? -David

A: Hi David, my first couple weeks on it, I did notice I went more frequently. I only noticed it at night because I was getting up an extra time or two before falling asleep. This is normal though because being in ketosis flushes your body of excess water... once I got used to it and keto adapted, I adjusted and stopped going so much. First couple of weeks your body is going through a lot of changes. Good luck. ~Rachel

Q: I have adrenal fatigue, and I am trying to lose weight as well. I only have about 10 or 12 pounds to lose, but it won't seem t budge even though I am eating a ketogenic diet and being super strict. I am wondering if this product will work for me and be safe for my adrenal fatigue. Thanks so much for any input!!! -Joanna

A: Hi Joanna, I'm not a Dr. so I can't advise you if Keto OS will help your condition, it's best to double check with your provider in the case you're on other medications. I don't see anything specific to adrenal fatigue on the Pruvit website, but you can double check the Pruvit research section here.

Q: Hi Rachel, I was wondering which flavor gives you the best energy? I mainly want to use it as a preworkout supplement so I can work out more intensely and with more energy. I am looking to get lean in a short amount of time. Also can you tell me more about the Keto Kreme, how often should I drink? Thanks -Marybeth

A: Marybeth, thanks for your question. I've used all of the flavors and the best one for a preworkout supplement is the new Bio Max Maui punch. It has the most bioavailable amount of ketones and gives me really clean, long lasting energy. Not to say the other ones don't, but I am loving the Bio Max for workouts. I've been doing Orange Theory Fitness circuit training and it definitely gives me that edge to push harder when before I may just slow down or quit. As far as the Keto Kreme, it's a great way to add fat to your diet so you burn even more fat. Wake up, drink your coffee with the keto kreme and it's going to give you 16 grams of fat to help you feel full and start your day. Then have some plain water, then drink a full serving of the Bio Max Maui punch and don't eat until your hungry. If you're going to be working out late afternoon, I would drink another charged (with the caffeine) or even one half of a pack. Otherwise you can drink a whole serving of the decaf. It depends how sensitive to caffeine you are but I found that after a week or so, I could tolerate another charged in the afternoon and it keeps me going all day! Good luck and keep me posted on your progress. Keto is 25% off today and tomorrow only! (2/1 and 2/2) so it's a good time to stock up. ~Rachel

Q: Do they make chocolate swirl in caffeine free? Can you take all caffeine free and lose weight? -susan

A: Hi Susan, yes! Chocolate swirl comes in both Charged and Non-Charged. All of the flavors have a decaf option. You will have the same weight loss results whether it's charged or caffeine free, you just may not have quite the energy buzz. All of the formulas have the ketone blend in common. You'll still get energy from decaf because it makes you more sharp and focused. It's 25% off today and tomorrow in case you didn't see that. It's a great time to grab it because they don't do sales very often. ~Rachel

Q: What are your recommendations for weight loss? I’ve been doing Keto max and 2.1 for about a week. Any advice? thanks. -Morgan

A: Hi Morgan, thanks for your question. I did eat a strict ketogenic diet my first month and weight fell off. Now I mostly do a lot of intermittent fasting everyday starting with MCT in my coffee, and try to eat low carb/high fat during the day. I do usually eat some carbs on the nights I workout and I've kept the weight off. Orange Dream is the best flavor to use if you're looking specifically for weight loss, twice a day, since it contains the MCT. You can try mixing the orange and maui half and half, it tastes like fruity pebbles. :) My brother lost a lot of weight mixing the two, the MCT is key. Good luck! Rachel

A: Hi Tammy, I usually make mine with about 16 oz water...the directions call for 12-16 oz, so if you're using 29 ounces - that's quite a lot for one drink. Try decreasing your water so you can drink it within about 30 minutes or so and then be sure to drink plenty of fresh water. Good luck, and thanks for your question! Rachel

Q: Do you have to be on keto diet Can you be on a low fat healthy diet for it to work If you are on Keto’s what if you can’t get all macros in?? Please help -Chandra Washington

A: Hi Chandra, no you don't have to follow a strict keto diet, not at all. Low carb is best for fat loss, but any healthy eating plan will work. In fact, I think some people get really confused by keto diet and with macros, etc. It's really easy to overeat fat calories because they are so dense so you have to be really careful. Losing weight still comes down to having a calorie/energy deficit so whatever "diet" plan you will follow, is the one you should do. Ketones just make everything easier and definitely help suppress appetite! Good luck! Rachel

Q: This is far to expensive for my limited income, I was injured 6 yrs ago and have put on weight from inactivity, now feeling better & want to lose this extra 40, yes 40 lbs, can you suggest something like the keto os that works almost as well & not so expensive? Please help, I don't even resemble my old self of a size 7/8. Thanks, Noni -Noni

A: Noni, if budget is an issue for you, then my best advice is to eat clean foods. Cut out all processed foods, anything white, cheese, and eat whole grains, lean proteins and tons of veggies and fruit. Try to eat organic especially when it comes to meats, as toxins settle into animal products more. You mentioned being injured, are you able to exercise? Eating right and exercising is the BEST way to lose weight naturally and safely. Even if it takes a little time, commit to a new routine and a new you! Rachel

Q: What should your diet be while using this product? -katelynn

A: Katelynn, they say you don't "have" to change your diet to lose weight, but obviously you'll get better results if you do. The recommended diet is ketogenic, low carb/moderate protein/high fat for optimal results. Keto is ketogenic, putting you into ketosis, so it goes hand in hand. Rachel

Q: Have you done the 60 hour max fast and if so what results and benefits? -helene

A: Hi Helene, I haven't tried a Keto OS fast yet - but I know a girl who did and felt great. I think it would be so easy because I'm seriously never hungry anymore. What she did was drink a 2.1 Orange Charged in the morning (it contains MCT oil), then a Keto Kreme "fat" coffee when she got hungry, then a second serving of decaf Max Maui in the afternoon. And either another fat coffee or a half serving of another decaf. Results were that she felt amazing and refreshed, and lost several pounds. Let me know if you try it! I'm sure I'll do it eventually. I do the intermittent fasting method most days which is where I drink a Max in the morning and don't eat until I'm hungry, usually 1:00. Then I'll have a decaf in the afternoon or another charged if I'm going to workout, then try and not eat after 8pm. You can visit the Pruvit website if you'd like to buy some and give it a try. Keep me posted if you do! Rachel

Q: I have PCOS (insulin restiant). How would this help me. I only carry weight in my mid section and needing to lose. Would this cause me to lose weight -Crystal

A: Hi Crystal, here's a snippet from the health/research section of the Pruvit website.

Yes, being in ketosis switches your bodies fuel source from carbs (sugar/glucose) to fat, and when you drink the ketones you're forced into ketosis.  It can cause some pretty significant fat loss for some, especially if you try to eat lower carb, higher fat. It also helps stabalize hormones. I hope you can give it a try! It's actually 22% off until midnight tonight (Memorial Day). ~Rachel

How does KETO//OS affect insulin utilization and sensitivity?


KETO//OS can enhance insulin sensitivity.  In preclinical studies, exogenous ketones have been shown to do this.  Richard Veech (scientist at the NIH) showed that feeding exogenous ketone supplements lowers blood glucose while simultaneously lowering blood insulin "research has demonstrated “ If more glucose is removed from the blood with less insulin that suggests that insulin sensitivity has been enhanced. We are experiencing this from testimonies of KETO//OS. As with any medical condition we recommend you consult with your physician.

Q: Can you drink alcohol while taking Keto OS? -Heather

A: Hi Heather, sure there's no issue with alcohol and ketones per say, but if weight loss/fat loss is your goal, then obviously drinking is empty calories and doesn't help but I certainly have a glass of red wine now and then or a vodka/club! :) I was very strict my first month and did not drink any alcohol. Alcohol can kick you out of ketosis...so just to let you know. And I won't say I've never mixed maui punch with a little vodka when I went to a wedding one time and wanted to stay up and alert (much better than a red bull) but I wouldn't recommend it often! Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks, Rachel

Q: I am gaining weight taking keto os and this is disturbing. Also have heard something about hair loss associated with this product. Any information about these issues? Thank you. -cheryl

A: Cheryl, I haven't heard of anything related to hair loss from taking Keto os. However, nutritional deficiencies from too extreme dieting could cause hair loss. If you're doing a low carb diet along with the Keto you definitely need to be eating lots of veggies. Some people who do the ketogenic diet (which you don't have to do while drinking Keto) weigh too heavily on fats and proteins and eat little to no veggies so that would not be good for anyone.  What's your diet like? I only know of one friend who gained her first week on Keto, but that was due to hormone fluctuations and she's super sensitive to foods causing inflammation so for her it was more about learning which foods to avoid and she seemed to have a bit of adaptation period on the keto os before she starting losing. If you'd like to talk about this in more detail send me a personal email to [email protected] Thanks! ~Rachel

Q: Can we use orange juice or other juices to mix it as well as adding fruits to it. I don't have any suggestions on what I can do with it. -Darlene

I would not add Keto OS to any sugary drinks such as OJ...it's best mixed with water or sparkling water and taken separately from food. I'm going to link the <a href="https://pesmby.pruvitnow.com/keto-recipe-ideas/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Keto OS Drink Recipes here</a>, there are some creative ways to drink it but mixing with fruit juice or fruit is not one that's recommended. It's recommended you avoid sugar and high sugar fruits if you're going to try to follow a more ketogenic diet which is low carb/high fat.  Hopefully something here looks good to you! :) Let me know if you have more questions. ~Rachel

Q: Hi! I purchased the Keto OS// in orange dream, and started it yesterday! I love the taste, BUT I feel quite fluffy and have had to take off my wedding rings because my fingers are chubby and I just weighed myself and have gained 5 lbs... In only on day! Is that normal?! I'm scared that this is doing the opposite for me and I am going to balloon. -AMANDA

A: Amanda, hi! That's crazy, I've never heard of gaining 5 lbs overnight - what else did you eat yesterday? It doesn't even make sense that you gain 5 lbs of water weight overnight.  The orange can cause some bloating and sometimes upset stomach if you're not used to high fats. There's something called the "whoosh effect" where your fat cells are filling up with water while you're keto adapting and once they release, it'll "whoosh" all the water out of your body. So my best advice is to trust the process and keep drinking it. You could just be one of those responders who do get bloated at first but after a week or so it'll start having the opposite effect. It's frustrating I know...I'm sorry, and it's not common but it does happen. When are you drinking it and what's your diet like? Drink LOTS of water - half your body weight in ounces in fresh water per day. If you don't drink enough, you'll retain water. Good luck! Rachel

Q: While taking Pruvit KETO - I understand that we do not need to go on a strict diet but do we have to exercise in order to lose weight? - or we do not need to exercise as well. Thanks, Flora -Flora

A: Hi Flora, for weight loss results, you don't have to go on any strict diet, but a low carb diet is best. Some like following a ketogenic diet or a lesser strict version of it. You don't have to exercise but any weight loss plan is going to be more successful with a healthy dose, even if it's walking. It really helps activate those ketones and you'll have extra energy! :) But if you're limited in some way to exercise, the answer is no, it is not required. Some people drink ketones just to help with pain and inflammation and are not concerned with weight loss, but if weight loss is your goal, then try to at least lower your carb and sugar intake for best results. Good luck! Rachel

Q: I have been using the keto OS two times a day for almost 4 weeks now I have only gained weight I have not lost any weight at all. I’m trying to watch my carbs I’m not exercising frequently but I’m always moving I’m a very busy person. I have another two months of the product and will continue to use it. I am just wondering why am gaining weight. My husband is also doing this and gaining weight. We eat protein and try to stay low carb. I feel like I have less joint pain and I have more energy but I spend a lot of time in the bathroom also. It’s very upsetting to my stomach. Any suggestions on why we would be gaining weight would be helpful. We will probably stop using the product after the next two months if this is still going on. -Lisa

A: Hi Lisa, are you drinking the Orange Dream flavor? Sometimes that one can cause an upset stomach if you're not used to a high fat diet since it contains MCT oil. I would back off to half a pack am and pm until this subsides. If you're drinking a different flavor, I would still back off, or, eat a little something first if you're been drinking it on an empty stomach.

As far as the weight gain, this can happen to some at first but that usually resolves itself after a couple weeks (if it happens) when you become fully keto-adapted. It's called the "whoosh effect" and it's when your fat cells fill up with water and causes temporary bloating but when you're body adjusts to the ketones, it releases that water and you'll usually see a drop on the scale. It's also extremely important to drink plenty of fresh, plain water - half of your body weight in ounces per day. You could retain water from being dehydrated.

It does take longer for some to fully keto-adapt. I'm one of the lucky ones who adapted right away, but my brother for example took 2-3 weeks, then he went on to lose 18 lbs the following month. Stay committed and trust the process, and I think you'll find you're going to start feeling a lot better. I'd also have to see your calorie intake and macros.... if you're eating a high fat diet those calories can add up quick. I felt like I was hardly eating anything when I ate a ketogenic diet, but my calories told a different story.

Good luck and feel free to email me if you'd like to chat privately, [email protected] Thank you! Rachel

Q: I have tried the Orange flavor and like it but it looks like the chocolate may have more benefits. Which do you recommend? -Denise

A: Denise, honestly I like the orange better, the chocolate is good when you're in the mood for chocolate. If you ever feel like mixing the orange with something like flavored la Croix or something else, I find the orange mixes better. Chocolate could be tasty with maybe a strawberry la Croix.... They both have the benefits so don't get too hung up on the differences.  Here are some highlights on the chocolate. I think they've upgraded the orange as well, but the chocolate is vegan and dairy free, whereas the orange is only gluten free.

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.

Q: WHY does Keto OS work? I suffer a stroke which has damaged my hypothalamus & therefore put out my production and utilisation of all neurotransmitters and hormones. My problems are chronic fatigue, brain fog and not being able to burn body fat for energy. Is it going to work for me? I do not have high blood pressure, nor do I suffer from blood clots -Maree

A: Hi Maree, sorry to hear about your stroke :( Keto OS works by flooding the body with exogeneous ketones which puts you into ketosis which is where you burn fat for fuel instead of carbs. It will definitely give you energy, helps lift brain fog, gives you mental focus and definitely helps me be a lot more productive with work and stuff at home. I love the energy it gives me. You should be fine giving it a try! I think it will definitely help you. Rachel

Q: Can Pruvit Ketone/OS be used once or twice daily pre-workout without following the diet but just healthy eating? Next I have had elevated liver enzymes in the past which are normal now and currently have very low potassium levels which my physician is treating with RX supplements. Would it be safe for me to use Ketones? Thank you. -Gina Whitmore

A: Hi Gina, you can drink ketones twice a day for the optimal benefit, yes. And you don't have to follow a ketogenic diet to experience benefits. Any healthy eating plan or lower carb diet works. Ketones do flush excess water from the body and with that goes electrolytes so it's a good idea to supplement with some basic electrolytes. I take magnesium and also a trace minerals supplement. You should ask your Dr. if it's safe for you just to be sure. Feel free to email me privately at [email protected] if you'd like to chat more. Thanks!! Rachel

In a nutshell, when you add ketones to the diet, you need to add salt to keep the balance of sodium that is lost through ketone supplementation. Here is the article explaining What are BHB Salts and Where do They Come From. And there's a second Q&A answered called Why is there Sodium in Keto OS.

I hope this helps! ~Rachel

Q: I started taking Keto Os on last Thursday and had a stomach all day. I am taking half a serving around 11 and a second between 3 and 4. I figured out that I cannot take it on a empty stomach or I will have a stomach ache all day. Is taking it after breakfast and after lunch effective? I have 30 pounds to loose and I need something that works. No weight loss to report. ; ( -Karen

A: Hi Karen! Thanks for your question. Hmm, did you order the 3.0 Chocolate Swirl? That's the new formula and has a prebiotic in it so it's supposed to alleviate the stomach issues from the previous versions. However, if you have a tummy ache that's just your body getting used to the MCT oils (from coconuts), and it should pass. Don't stop. If drinking it after a meal is what works for you, then continue to do that. Did you start with just 1/2 pack per day? I always recommend that for at least 4-5 days so the tummy upset will pass. Once you get used to it, I think you'll be able to play around with it and try it on an empty stomach. This will work if you stick with it, just give your body time to adjust to it. Are you active otherwise? Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

Q: I pretty much eat what I want but in moderation. I exercise 6 days a week religiously. I do have 2-3 captain morgans nightly. I want to try the the max- charged. Can I expect to tone or lose any inches with my regular diet and alcohol consumption? -Daralyn

A: Hi Daralyn, thanks for your question and for your honesty. Three rum drinks per night is a lot only because it has such high sugar ....you could certainly try! I will say, both my mom and my brother have kicked their alcohol habits completely and drinking daily ketones has helped tremendously.

I just posted a new blog post a couple days ago on My Family's Results with Keto OS, specifically about my mom and brother. They both have lowered their blood pressure to normal levels in a matter of weeks and Keto really helps curb sugar and carb cravings which includes alcohol. It's helping them both stay sober. I don't know if your goal is to cut down on those...but wanted to share the info.

Keto gives you a feeling of satiety so it helps all around with cravings. I used to drink a vodka and club every night, and now I never even crave it. I will drink one or two on the weekends.... Maybe drinking ketones can help you cut down, if that is your goal. You will definitely feel benefits so I would recommend giving it a try to see how it can help you. You just won't know until you try! :)

The Maui is my fave! Although the new Raspberry Lemonade has quickly become another favorite!  If you decide to try it, you can buy the Max Maui here from me. I would love to continue to keep in touch on your journey and offer my help if you'd like! You can email me personally at [email protected] if you'd like to chat further. Thank you and good luck! ~Rachel

Q: Do you haveb to change your diet for keto os to put your body into ketosis? How long does your body stay in ketosis? -Teri

A: Hi Terri, I think I answered you more thoroughly via email, but I'll reiterate - you don't "have" to change your diet for Keto OS to work. Will it work faster if you clean up your diet? Of course.  If you're drinking two packs per day you should stay in ketosis up to 24 hours. Personally I don't follow the "ketogenic" diet, but I have tried to eat fewer bad carbs (bread, pasta) and increase my good fats (more avocado, salmon, olive oil on salads, and cooking eggs in coconut oil, although a little organic butter is also OK). I made really just a few small changes to "lean" towards a ketogenic diet which I think did help me shed a few more lbs more easily, but I haven't gotten nuts with it like putting butter and heavy whipping cream in my coffee to make it "bulletproof"  and I really don't eat bacon. I HAVE to eat carbs because I lead an active lifestyle, so I've tried to add a couple of healthier grains to my diet such as millet and quinoa instead of eating breads, white pasta or even rice. Both millet and quinoa are high in protein and high in carbs but sometimes you just need carbs! :) I will never eat an "all fat" diet. ~Rachel, WomensBlogTalk.com

    I would really love to try this product!! But before I spend this kind of money, I was wondering if you have samples? I’m 60 years old and doctor’s have said I need to lose weight, due to blood clots. I hope you can help me. Thank you so much!!!

      Hi Karen, absolutely. Check out the packages I offer on my Keto Samples blog, I have 5 and 10 day experiences you can choose from so you can try the flavors before committing to a whole box of one flavor. They’re not free but I just try to cover the cost of product and shipping, and you can check out via PayPal. Thanks for your message! Rachel

      Hi Sheila, sorry you didn’t see the results you were looking for with Ketones… can I ask, how long did you take them and did you change your diet to cut some carbs? For weight loss it’s important to eat lower carb, and ketones make this easier. But I’m surprised that it did nothing for you. Inflammation is a biggie and we can’t exactly see that in the body, and most people feel the energy right away. Maybe you didn’t drink it long enough. Or if you just had samples you can’t really make that the deciding factor. If there’s anything I can do to help you have a better experience let me know, you can email me directly at [email protected]. Usually if you tell me your routine, how you were using and what your diet was like, I can tell you where you could maybe make some adjustments and see huge improvements. It’s not a magic pill, nothing is, but it’s a great tool for many health benefits if used the right way. Thanks! Rachel

  • Sania Keto Diet

    Thank you a lot for this article!
    It really helps me to understand some things about Ketogenic diet!
    I also saw that you got a lot of books about Keto diet.
    Will you make any giveaways soon? Pleaseee 😀
    Have a nice day!

  • jenna

    I need to clear with the schedule. Help me to understand when to drink KETOs and when to eat meals. I need a visual schedule where I’m able to follow it through. I’m not able to locate the FAQ on the bottom. I may overlook. Please assist me with this one. Thanks!

      Hi Melanie, I always drink my Keto about an hour before I work out, but I work out usually at 4:30 pm. Might be hard to get in before 5 am! It does help you have better workouts and burn more fat drinking beforehand but you’ll absolutely still benefit drinking it after for recovery and energy to keep going…. being in ketosis anytime of the day is beneficial. Maybe you should drink it when you feel you need it most, like after lunch when most people crash. Hope this helps! Rachel

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Dolan, I can’t give medical advice…it’s best to check with you Dr. first. Keto does have a lot of sodium in it but it’s put there for a reason. When you eat a ketogenic diet or drink ketones, your body releases excess water and with that goes electrolytes. A high carb diet with high sodium is really the problem, not sodium itself. Email me if you’d like to purchase a 5 day experience [email protected], they are $35 and I can do decaf as well if caffeine has an effect on your blood pressure. Thanks! Rachel

  • Brandon

    Love the Maui punch, my workouts have really improved and are much stronger. Can’t wait for the Splash to be offered as a regular flavor, thank you for the samples it was delicious! Let me know when it’s for sale on the website. I want that AC-11 benefit. Thanks.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Par, I do know a customer who mixes the Maui punch with the Keto Kreme and loves it! You’re getting both the ketones (BHB) and the benefit of the MCT, coconut oil, and four different types of collage from the Kreme when you take both. Even if you don’t mix them, it’s good to drink both. ~Rachel

  • Sara

    Keto OS Raspberry Lemonade is really tasty! It gives me level energy throughout the day, and motivation to workout. It suppresses my appetite like crazy, and it’s helping me lose this stubborn baby weight – finally something that works!

  • Jody

    I am starting a low carb life style change and need this push but it seems like a lot of money to throw out there on something I haven’t tried. Is there a starter package or samples? I have right at 100 lbs to lose and need a good kick to get it going.

    Thank you!

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Jody, thanks for your message. I do offer a 5 day experience to try all the flavors, this is a great way to determine which flavor you like best and would enjoy committing to. I offer these for $35 and that includes mailing. So it would be one of each: Max Maui Punch, Max Raspberry Lemonade, Max Swiss Cacao, OS Chocolate Swirl and OS Orange Dream. I can do all charged or a mix of charged and decaf. Please send me an email to [email protected] if you’d like to go ahead. Thanks! Rachel

  • Mike

    Hi Rachel! Thanks for all the great information. I too along with my wife are doing Orange Theory. Just a week into the workouts. Quick question, I am very interested in the Keto OS product for fat burning. With this product in the body when you work out are you burning fat or just the OS supplement that’s been put into the body? Reading reviews it looks like there has been great success with this product. I am thinking in my case there is still sugar stored in the fat/muscle that would get burned before the fat does. Not sure how that works? I may have the terminology wrong. Once again thanks for the wealth of information and congrats on the success you’ve had in journey through health.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Mike, thanks for your message! That’s awesome you’ve started OTF, I absolutely love it, it’s the best workout and the most fun I’ve ever done…I’ve done boot camps before and they’re just too intense, I really don’t like flipping tires OR doing 100 burpees, LOL. Keto OS will throw you into ketosis which is when you’re body uses fat for fuel, so you’ll be burning fat. However if you have carbs/glucose in your system (which most of us do unless you’re following a ketogenic diet), then on Keto you’re body is able to duel fuel and use both. So you’re right, in the presence of both glucose and fat, the Keto will use both. Exactly which one first and how much is getting too scientific for me to explain. Dr. Andra Campitelli does discuss this, take a look at these Keto U videos, they’re all short like one minute. I know she talks about dual fueling in one of these, and you’ll probably have a few other questions answered by listening to these. I usually drink my Keto about 30 minutes to an hour before going to OTF, great energy! I definitely push through the hard stuff and keep running so much easier using ketones as fuel. Ketones are a superior fuel source, with more energy/oxygen than carbs. Let me know if you’re interested in a five day experience before purchasing. Email me at [email protected]. Thanks!! Rachel

  • Katy

    Hi there – some people in another company (health and fitness but NOT ketones) claim that its unsafe to push your body into ketosis with this product. Is there any truth to that or research to back that?

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Katy, they’re just trying to sell their product… ketones are very safe. Ketones are a fuel source just like carbs and protein, your body uses them as fuel. Babies are born into ketosis and stay there if they are nursing. Ketones are also safe to drink if you’re pregnant or nursing. Being in ketosis is our native state, we were meant to be in and out of ketosis and our bodies make ketones naturally. Check out some of the articles in the research section of the Pruvit site. There’s a ton of third party research. If you see someone or a company bashing ketones, you can bet they are just trying to bait and switch you to their product. Ketones are amazing! I’m going on 9 months of drinking them daily and never felt better. 🙂 Rachel

  • Rhonda

    Can I drink it in a shot? What is the least amount of liquid recommended to mix it with? I just don’t like the taste and want to down it quickly.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      12 oz would be the minimum…and you should sip on it slowly over 20 minutes, not chug it. Have you tasted all the flavors? Raspberry lemonade is amazing…I crave it. 20% storewide until midnight in case you didn’t see. Thanks! Rachel

  • Tracey

    I am very interested to try this product but don’t see anyone offering a free starter package to know I want to spend that much money on it? Any ideas.

  • BJ

    What is KAN 30 and OTC 30?
    I had three knee surgeries, last one two years ago but I am still in extreme pain and have a lot of weight to lose. I read your blog and it said to use the Orange dream, which is great advice because I had no idea where to start on this Pruvit.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi BJ, thanks for your question. The Kan is literally a can of powder that comes with a scoop, and it’s more economically priced vs. the OTG (On the Go) envelopes, those are individual servings. It’s the same formula whether you get in a Kan or envelopes, but only the Orange Dream and the Chocolate Swirl come in either a Kan or OTG. The Maui Punch, Swiss Cacao and Raspberry Lemonade (once it’s released) are only available in OTG envelopes. The Orange is great because it contains MCT, however if you’re in a lot of pain you might consider the Chocolate Swirl – it contains a short fatty chain butyrate which is really good for inflammation. My fibromyalgia customers use that one mostly when in a crisis. They all work….there’s just some differences. Let me know if you have more questions or you can email me directly at [email protected] Pruvit is on sale today 20% off. Thanks! Rachel

  • Lucretia

    Curious how long can the headache portion last. First four days I felt great. These past two days a constant low to mid grade temple headache. I’ve upped my water intact
    Thank you
    Lucretia

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Lucretia, you’re more than likely dehydrated, so definitely up your water intake to half your body weight in ounces.Remember ketosis flushes the body of water so with that goes electrolytes. Good to add a little Himalayan salt to your foods and/or a magnesium supplement. If you also changed your diet to a low carb diet, that could be a contributing factor, but Ketones themselves should not cause a headache. Good luck! Rachel

  • Casey

    Hi Rachel!
    I started out on Herbalife in January and lost 25lbs. in 4 months, but have plateaued the last 3 months. Thinking maybe my body has just gotten accustomed so I’ve been looking at ways to shake/shock my body and start losing weight again. I’m interested in trying Keto-OS but it’s super expensive and I’d rather try before I buy. I saw you had offered samples to some people and was wondering if you’re still doing that? And if so, may I try some?
    Thank you!

    • Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Casey, thanks for your message, yes I do have samples! I’m going to email you personally, thanks! Rachel

  • Irma

    I am trying to take the Decaf Orange Keto OS. I started taking one in the mid morning after I have my caffeinated coffee. 30 minutes later, I want to take a nap. No energy at all. It does help with my constipation, which is good. That being said, if I am staying at home, I do take it before bed and it does help me sleep. As for energy or Ketosis (I have the sticks) have not seen any of that. I also do have to add that I have not started a routine due to the fatigue and what my plans are for the day.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Irma, I would definitely recommend drink the Charged for your morning dose. If you’re a coffee drinker already, I doubt the caffeine in the charged will be too much. It’s got about as much as a cup of coffee. The MCT powder in the orange also makes you feel more full which is great for suppressing appetite but it sounds like it’s just making you sleepy. Test with the sticks 30 minutes after drinking a full serving, you will see it register on the stick. If you wait for hours to test, it could be out of your system by then. Good luck! Rachel

  • VM

    I have hypothyroidism which means I have an under active thyroid. My metabolism is slow as a result and I have a sensitivity to caffeine. Do you have any info regarding results with people having metabolism issues? I also would like to know if the decaf products are as effective as those containing caffeine?

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi VM, thanks for your message. Keto can help with thyroid and boosting metabolism. If you have the time, watch this FB live video with Dr. Heather Carden. It’s on the JustPruvit corporate Facebook page, so you may have to “like” their page first. She is super informative on all things Keto OS and she also talks about thyroid….it’s a 30 minute video and I’m sorry I don’t know exactly at what point she discusses thyroid, but it’s worth listening to and will probably answer a ton of other questions you may have. The decaf works just as well to put you into ketosis. You won’t get the caffeine “buzz” but you’ll still get mental energy and increased focus since the brain loves ketones, so you’ll still get some energy from it as well. I’ll also link you to the Pruvit Research section, if you scroll all the way down the page, there are a ton of great articles. Let me know if you still have questions. Thank you, Rachel

    I stumbled across this product and have been researching, thus seeing your site.

    How can I get samples as I am very interested to try this product.

  • Ginny

    Thanks for this great information. But, please stop saying that muscle weighs more than fat. A pound is a pound is a pound. Whether it’s a pound of feathers, a pound of lead, or a pound of muscle. Muscle is more DENSE than fat, so it takes up much less space, but it still weighs 16 ounces…and so does a pound of fat.
    Your review was great otherwise. Thank you!

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Ginny, you’re right a pound is a pound…I guess it’s a figure of speech that most can relate to while not technically correct. I think many people focus too much on the scale and may not lose weight but lose inches and still get frustrated. Thanks for your comment! Rachel

  • Dorothy Batton

    i haven’t drank coffee in over forty years, so in using this product with charged caffeine, it did a number on me elevating my blood pressure. I’d like to exchange for the regular and continue with the program. I am 85 with more than average energy for my years. I’m impressed with the information I have been given.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hello Dorothy, I’m sorry I am just seeing your message. I can see how the Charged maybe was a little too much for you since you’re not used to caffeine. You’ll need to send an email to [email protected] and tell them what you’d like to do, they are great about refunds and can help you figure out what you need to do to get some decaf. Let me know if you need any more help getting this accomplished. Thank you! Rachel

  • Rosa

    Hi I was liking the Max but I cannot tolerate Stevia, I think I am allergic to Stevia…Are they planning on making a Max with no sugar substitutes, it would be really good because there are many people whose stomachs do not tolerate Stevia…maybe monk fruit???

      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Rosa, thanks for your comment. I know they are always working on new products and I wouldn’t be surprised if they added a new flavor sweetened with something else. That stinks you have a stevia allergy…I have not heard from anyone else with this issue. Sorry! Rachel

  • Carmen

    I thought you said that when your sister took it her stomach was upset for a couple days then she was fine and now you’re saying it took her about a week.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hey Carmen,
      I’m confused…did I say somewhere that it took my sister a week to keto adapt? I don’t remember that…some people do take longer however, depends how bad your diet is and what you’re used to eating. My sis did have an upset stomach for a couple days from the Orange Dream and then she was fine. Rachel

        • Rachel Vrabel
          Rachel Vrabel

          A few days….a week. I don’t feel that was a glaring discrepancy or intentional to mislead anyone, my point was that if you do get an upset stomach (which most people don’t at all by the way), it usually doesn’t last long, but everyone is different. If you are concerned about the orange giving you an upset stomach, or you’re sensitive to fats, the chocolate is the one I recommend because it doesn’t contain MCT oils and contains a prebiotic. Hope that helps. Rachel

    Tonya, I just want to say – I love you! 🙂 I really appreciate your comment and support on this, you totally made my day – thank you! Pruvit is an MLM, so you do have to know someone if you’d like to purchase it, so why not from me? I promote it because I LOVE the product for so many reasons and I don’t hide the fact that I’m a promoter – I’m very proud to be! Some people are just miserable and love to complain. The same woman started commenting on a bunch of other posts so I decided to take the high road and ignore any more communication – just a Negative Nancy. I’ve worked hard on this blog for six years to make it what it is today and feel good about my recommendations. Thank you again for your encouraging support! ~Rachel

    • Tonya

      🙂 Absolutely! And chances are this Negative Nancy thought she was going to get rich quick by joining one at one time and expected it to “just happen” and when it didn’t, she got ugly. You are doing the work and hopefully have much success. Be blessed!

  • Casey

    Hey Rachel – you mentioned dealing with IVF and pregnancy loss, I’m in the same boat. I’ve done 1 retrieval and 3 transfers ending in 2 miscarriages and 1 failed cycle. Same as you experienced my body is kind of a wreck from all of it. I’m doing another retrieval in May and a transfer in August. Have you done Keto os while doing IVF cycles? Did you ever talk to a doc about it? I’m curious to try but I also don’t want to anything that may have a negative impact on our IVF.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Casey, thanks for your message. I’m really sorry for your losses, I know how painful that is…I’m not sure how being in ketosis would affect a cycle. I wouldn’t recommend drinking in once you start injections, but I don’t see any reason not to use it to your benefit up until then. It’s very safe in fact it’s safe for pregnant and nursing mothers. And for what it’s worth, drinking keto makes me feel happy again, I am seriously always in a good mood. I was extremely low after more than a year going through 3 cycles of IVF, so it definitely has made me feel like my happy, energized self again! You could talk to your Dr. about continuing on it once you start your meds (like decaf) but most Dr.’s like to say don’t add anything to the mix once your stimming. Good luck with your next cycle!! I know it’s so rough! Rachel

  • Sarah Murphy

    Hi there,

    I just started taking this product this week. I am very active and at an ideal weight but am doing this more for energy and focus. I work out at 5am (HIIT and weights) and do my coffee post workout and then my keto OS chocolate swirl at 8am. My struggle is that I am usually hungry by 9-10am. Am I decreasing the effectiveness by eating so soon after? It is 3 whole eggs and cauliflower rice so still keto but I am wondering if this is okay or if I should switch the time I take my keto OS.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hey Sarah! Thanks for your question. You won’t decrease it’s effectiveness but if you want to do more of an intermittent fasting method, try drinking your keto in the morning before your workout and keeping everything else the same. You may not be as hungry so quickly if your goal is to wait a little longer to eat. Also, you’ll have a lot more energy for your workout! I realize this means probably drinking it at 4:30 and finishing up on your way to the gym but I love the maui as a preworkout. Sometimes I’m not quite finished with it yet and I’ll finish the rest during my workout, adding a little more water along the way if I’m thirsty. If you’re doing this more for the energy and focus, just give it a try pre workout one day and see how you feel. Either way is great! Personally I don’t really eat for several hours at least after I drink my keto….I like to be fueled by the ketones alone for a while because I feel great when I do that. Good luck and keep me posted. I’d love to hear how your workout is fueled by keto! 🙂 Rachel

  • Valerie

    Tried it for the first time today. My friend swears by it and sent me samples. I am experiencing the worst stomach cramps ever. I tried advocare products in the past and it didn’t help. I was able to lose almost 40 on my own without suplements and keep it off for about a year but then started regaining and hit a plateu so tried this. I don’t think I will continue.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Valerie, are you drinking the Orange Dream? That is only flavor that contains MCT oils which for some can cause some stomach upset. It should pass if you’re able to push through it, but this is the only flavor I’ve ever heard of giving anyone stomach upset. You should try the chocolate flavor – it includes a prebiotic and anyone that has a reaction to the orange is better suited on the chocolate. You can email me at [email protected] if you’d like to talk more about or privately. Let me know if it’s the orange. Thanks! and I’m sorry…my sister had an upset stomach for a couple days on the orange but then it passed. Your body is adapting but I would recommend chocolate for you.

  • Tonya

    Hi Rachel! Thanks for the review, very informative. I already purchased some Keto Kreme and the Max but then read somewhere that the Ketone OS stuff isn’t in the kreme?? So if I drink the Kreme in the morning with my coffee, I’m still going to need to take the Max in the morning as well? I was planning on Kreme in the morning, Max in the late afternoon before my workout.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Tonya, thanks! You’re right, the Keto Kreme is a companion product just to get a nice healthy fat serving, it doesn’t contain ketones like the other Keto OS flavor (max, orange and chocolate). You can drink that in your coffee in the morning (or make pancakes with it for a meal), and then normally you’d want to drink your Max a short while after that. The keto kreme will help keep you full and rev your metabolism but it’s not going to put you into ketosis like the Max would. Personally, I would drink some plain water after you have your coffee with Keto kreme and then I’d drink a full serving of the MAX so you’ve got energy throughout the day and you’re burning fat. Then I would drink another half serving of the charged by 3 for energy for your workout if you feel you need an energy boost. This is exactly what I do most days. I’ll drink another half serving of the charged if I’m going to Orange Theory class or I’ll drink a whole decaf. I would not delay drinking your max until late afternoon. You’ll miss out on the all day energy and focus, fat burning, and it could keep you up because of the caffeine. Let me know how it goes! Rachel

    • Rachel Vrabel

      A – not it’s not….it does not contain protein like a protein shake, it’s a drink you take in between meals.

  • Deanna Zryd

    Thank you for reviewing this product. I just ordered the chocolate swirl for a.m. and caffeine-free for p.m. I attempted to follow the keto plan back in early December and while I lost 5lbs, it was hard for me to reach ketosis. I’m excited to give this a try and will follow the low-carb lifestyle.

      Deanna, thanks for your message. Following a strict ketogenic diet is very difficult, if not impossible for most people. This is where Keto OS is really going to make things a lot easier for you to stay in ketosis! And if you follow a low carb diet, you’re going to get great results. Even if you cheat with extra carbs, the Keto is going to stay in your system and keep you in ketosis for up to 24 hours. Best of luck with it and I’d love to hear back from you to see how you like it. ~Rachel

    Hi there, if I exercise in the afternoons is it ok to still have the keto OS in The morning? Or should I have it an hour before training? Do you know how long our body stays in ketosis after having the supplement?

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Lisa, absolutely it’s great (and best) to start your day by drinking Keto OS. If you’re drinking it early (between 7 and 9am) then you should have a second serving in the afternoon (between 1-4) and then go train. If you drink two servings per day your body will stay in ketosis for up to 24 hours. You can drink the decaf in the afternoon if you’re sensitive to caffeine or you find you have any trouble getting to sleep. I’m usually ok as long as I drink it before 3. Good luck and let me know if you have any more questions. ~Rachel

    Hey John, I appreciate your comment even if you are giving a huge thumbs down to Keto OS. Kudos to you for losing 100 lbs! I’ve never been able to stick with a ketogenic diet, it’s extremely difficult. Like you said, even more restricting than Atkins. I disagree with you that 10 lbs in 3 weeks is not great progress, at least for me. Being only 10-15 lbs away from my goal weight, it was much harder to lose. I think it’s a pretty well known fact that those last 10 lbs are the most stubborn. And if you have a lot of weight to lose, as you did, then I could see losing 10 lbs in a week of water weight. Losing 10 lbs in a week for someone like me would be completely ridiculous, impossible without starving myself, and losing 10 lbs in a week is not even recommended. Losing 2-3 lbs per week is a reasonable amount for me to lose safely and effectively. You’re right that Keto OS can help with alzheimer’s, there’s a lot of research on the Keto OS website about it in their research section. Obviously, trying to eat clean while consuming Keto is the way to go. This supplement isn’t a miracle drink, I always recommend trying to eat a healthy diet and exercising to achieve your overall health and fitness goals. I think of this supplement as a boost, a boost to get off my ass when I don’t feel like going to the gym, an energy boost to power through workouts with more energy, focus and less inflammation afterwards, a little help to suppress the appetite when I feel like stuffing my face with cheese and crackers, and it does help your body burn fat quicker. This all still takes willpower, determination and a huge desire to better myself. I know I’m getting off track, but to me Keto OS is not “snakeoil” and I would probably not enjoy drinking a $3.99 jar of coconut oil 😉 Anyhow, it’s not for everyone but it’s helped a lot of people, including me and my sister… But I do appreciate you taking the time to comment. I don’t just approve “the good comments.” I feel there is value in these discussions. Have a great day and keep up the good work with your weight loss! ~Rachel

    I am concerned about the use of Keto OS (I ordered the chocolate swirl w/ caffeine for myself) for my husband who has diabetes. If the product is getting you in ketosis (more ketones) would this be dangerous for a diabetic? I need to lose 40-45 pounds myself, have no thyroid due to thyroidectomy bc of thyroid cancer, so I’m hoping this will help me loose the weight as nothing else has helped me significantly.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Sherri, thanks for your question. I want to refer you to the Research section of the Keto OS website. Scroll all the way to near the bottom until you see the section called “Still Wondering?” and there is a section under this called “Improving Insulin Insensitivity.” This is where you can read the Pub Med research regarding a ketogenic, low carb diet and its affect on insulin. Keto OS is not a replacement for a ketogenic diet but a supplement to help you stay in ketosis. It should not be dangerous for a diabetic, in fact it should help, but you should always check with your Doctor before starting a new supplement, especially if you’re on other medications. As far as it being safe for you with no thyroid, it shouldn’t be a problem for you. If you decide to try it, both of you should start very slowly, only drink one half of a pack (each) per day mixed with water. See how you feel on it for several days, 4-5 days before you drink a whole pack. If your husband checks his insulin he should keep a close watch on it for any changes. I would still recommend talking to your Doctor first. Good luck! Rachel

      Carro, you can take it to reach your desired weight, and then stop. However, just like with any diet plan – if you go back to eating bad you’ll gain weight back. Some people like the other health benefits of Keto OS so they continue drinking it long term. It has a lot of other benefits besides weight loss such as energy, mental focus, fights inflammation and protects the brain. But you can certainly just drink it for weight loss. Rachel

  • Catherine

    Hi! This question is kind of more for your sister. I’m also epileptic and have been struggling with the keto diet for a while. I was just wondering if the keto os has been successfully keeping her body in ketosis and if it has helped decrease the number of seizures she’s had. I appreciate any kind of response you can give me. Cheers!

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Catherine, thanks for your email. I’m sorry you’re dealing with epilepsy, it’s a very difficult road at times. The Keto OS had no effect on her seizure activity that we could tell, since she’s been seizure free for about 5 years from finally finding the right cocktail of meds (thank God). She hasn’t been drinking it every day since she lost some weight. She drank it pretty faithfully to lose some weight, and then she really upped her yoga activity so that’s been keeping her on track for the most part, although she’s gained back a few lbs so she’s been wanting to restart the Keto. She always did real well tolerating it and never had any side effects. As far as using it to stay in ketosis long term, I think you certainly could, but I don’t know that it “replaces” the ketogenic diet that Dr.’s recommend for epilepsy, in fact I know it doesn’t, it’s more of a supplement to the ketogenic lifestyle. It’s always best to talk to your Dr. about starting any new supplements when you have epilepsy, so I would just run it by him/her for some guidance. Good luck to you! Rachel

  • Jody Seaberg

    Hi, I was on their website and I don’t see the sample pack option anywhere. So I’m guessing they no longer offer that??? I really want to try this but is too expensive for me. ? Have the terrible over 50 menopausal weight gain and totally do not feel good about myself or like the way I look anymore…. Ugh…. ?

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Jody, I’m sorry but I can’t find it either. I was actually searching for it the other day and it doesn’t appear that they offer it any more. I would recommend ordering a 15 pack of either the Orange Dream or the Chocolate Swirl to try it. They have a money back guarantee with good customer service so if you try it for several days and don’t like it, you can call and tell them you want to return it. They stand by their return policy 100%, but I guarantee you’ll love it! Rachel

  • Juliet

    I’m very interested in starting these supplements, I just want to know what happens when you reach your goal weight and stop taking the suplemments? Will it have an adverse effect on your motabilism?

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Juliet, Keto OS won’t stall your metabolism at all. I took it and lost the weight I wanted, and then stopped. I didn’t gain any weight back until I started REALLY slacking on my diet again. So at that point, I started drinking it again. This is a great product that works! Good luck, Rachel

  • Elizabeth

    Does the chocolate with caffeine make you jittery? Is it safe product? I need to loose 30 lbs and am wanting only something safe that want make my heart race..

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Elizabeth, no the Chocolate Swirl Keto OS does not give me the shakes at all, nor does the Orange charged. It has about as much caffeine as a cup of coffee but it gives me more of a steady all day energy rather than a quick, jittery buzz. That’s what I really like about it. You could always order the smaller package to make sure you like it, but they do offer a money back guarantee, just to let you know. Great company and customer service. Good luck! I can’t say enough about the effectiveness of this product, it really works for weight loss, energy, and mental focus. Rachel

  • Deborah

    Hi Rachel, wondering what is the exact difference between the original Keto-OS and the new product. Are they both as effective? Appreciate your input. Have had the product for over a year and started taking it but didn’t notice much change and felt nauseas so stopped it. I had bought the 300. supply when the company was just taking off. So I have quite a bit of it left. Wondering if I should give it another try. But I’m curious as to the changes they made in the newer version and the difference in the effectiveness if any. Thanks for all the info you share.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Deborah, thanks for your question. There is a difference between the old Orange 2.0 and the new Orange Dream 2.1. They changed the ratio of the salts and the MCT powder and added a few things. I’m going to link a picture here of all three showing the ingredients on the back of the packets (Orange 2.0, Orange Dream 2.1, and Chocolate Swirl 3.0) so you can see the difference. I can only say they have improved the formula based on their science and research.

      The new Chocolate Swirl 3.0 has a much different formula, and I just got mine (it’s delicious!). You may do better on the chocolate since they added a prebiotic and it’s supposed to not give you an upset stomach. I’m going to copy and paste here a clip from my review that talks about the new 3.0:

      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.

      You can read more about the Keto OS 3.0 Chocolate Swirl by clicking here.

      I’d hate for you to waste all that orange you have. You could give it another try. Try drinking half a pack for a few days, then go to a full pack. Did you start slowly last time? It’s very important. You should get over that stomach upset fairly quickly, that’s your body getting used to the MCT oil. I never had an upset stomach but my sister did, but only for a day or two.
      Let me know if you have any more questions, and good luck! Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

      Hi Patrice, drinking two packs per day you’ll stay in ketosis for up to 24 hours. Glad you like it! I would love for you to leave another review in a week and let me know how you’re feeling on it. Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

  • SUSAN HARDY

    I have the original Keto OS. I heard that if you drink coffee before taking it, then it won’t work. Is this true? I need to lose 50 lbs, but the very first thing I do in the morning is have a cup of coffee. I don’t want to waste the Keto OS. But I do want to start taking it.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Susan! This is not true. This is exactly how I drink it. When I wake up, I drink my coffee and use cream in it (no sugar), then drink one plain glass of water, then drink the Keto OS and it takes me about 45 minutes to drink it slowly. I still have a bunch of the old formula that I’m using as well, nothing wrong with it. My next order I’m getting the 3.0 Chocolate Swirl though! If you put a lot of sugar in your coffee, that will hinder weight loss but the Keto will still work. Good luck! Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

  • Lisa

    Just wondering…do you feel/believe/think that this is something that you will have to continue to take for life, like for maintenance? or is it a shorter term thing, like when you reach your goals, then you discontinue? I have looked for an answer but haven’t been able to find one…
    Thanks!
    Lisa

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Lisa, you don’t have to drink it for life. It’s a great weight loss tool to reach your goals. Some people like the energy and continue at smaller doses. But you could certainly take it for a few months, lose weight and then stop. The only thing that will cause you to gain the weight back is if you go back to an unhealthy lifestyle to be totally honest. I’ve taken it and lose weight but also taken breaks from drinking it and haven’t gained any weight back but I have to continue to eat fairly clean and stay active. 🙂 I just started drinking it again because I like the energy and I want to lose another 5 lbs. it also helps me to be a lot less sore between lifting weights and volleyball since it helps with inflammation.

  • Helen

    Is there a special diet as well? Or just take Keto//os, I am sick of diet plans that don’t work and deprive me of food, hate feeling hungry.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Helen, there is no special diet. That’s why people are raving about this product! They do have some information on their website about pairing it with a ketogenic diet (moderate protein/low carb/high fat) for optimal weight loss, but you don’t have to. Keto suppresses my appetite like crazy so you won’t feel hungry. Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Neal, that’s awesome! You’re going to love it. The best diet to combine with Keto-OS is to follow a ketogenic diet, and there’s a ton of information and links if you look around on the Keto website: http://pesmby.pruvitnow.com/ Moderate protein/low carb/high fat (good fats mostly). This is what brings optimal weight loss. But I wouldn’t go nuts with it….try to eat clean, no processed foods, no white flour, no alcohol, no added sugar or fake sweeteners. Add some good fats such as salmon, avocado, drizzle olive oil on steamed veggies or salad (oil and balsamic on salad), hummus and veggies, small handful of nuts. These are the things I eat when I want to increase my good fats. You can also cook your eggs and stir fry veggies in coconut oil. If you like smoothies, add some flax seed oil or ground flax seed, that’ll add some good fat too! Good luck and keep in touch. Let me know if you have any more questions. Rachel

  • Julie

    I wanted to order this product, I’ve been doing research (which is how I found this review) and would like to try this but I have to have an invite/invite code (?) to do so. How do I get that if I found the information on my own?

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Julie, hmm I’ve never heard of that. When I initially purchased, I just ordered from my sister’s website. You can go directly to http://pesmby.pruvitnow.com/ and order from me. Keto is sold as an “MLM” structure (like Beachbody) so you just have to know someone who promotes it, which I do. Let me know if you have any more questions. Rachel

  • Loretta

    Hi! I’m only on day 4 of drinking 1/2 a pkg of Keto in the AM (upon waking) and the other half later in the afternoon. Yesterday and today I’ve noticed a lot of stomach upset and not feeling the best. It kind of feels like what your stomach would feel like when it’s empty and hungry – with a lot of gurgling and growling, yet I don’t feel hungry. I’m just wondering if this will pass. I like that I have more energy and it’s definitely hunger suppressing. I’m just not enjoying how much stomach feels these past 2 days.

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Hi Loretta, thanks for your question. Tummy upset can happen in the beginning but it should pass. My sister had that experience when she started and it passed after about a week. Honestly from what they explain on the website, it’s your body getting used to the high fat content (the MCT oil) which is extracted from coconut. Did you start by just drinking half a pack a day for at least four or five days? You could always taper down to half until this feeling passes and then go up to a full pack. It’s also my understanding that the more gut issues you have, the more upset tummy you’ll have. So it’s probably not a bad thing entirely if that makes sense. Good luck! Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

      • Loretta

        Thank you very much for your response! I was doing 1/2 a pack in the AM and half in the PM, but yesterday I only did 1/2 the pack. I’m on day 5 now. I have always had other stomach/digestion issues so that would make sense as to why I am now. 🙂

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Reba, Keto should keep you in ketosis for up to 24 hours. Half a pack won’t though, that’s just the starting dose to get used to it. Some people need to drink up to two packs per day for optimal ketosis and weight loss. Honestly I never did the pee strips, and I only drink one pack per day. I never took two since I didn’t have as much weight to lose and one works for me for weight loss and energy. Try going up to one pack and test again. Rachel~WomensBlogTalk.com

  • Carmen

    Hi, Rachel, I just got totally engrossed by your review of the Keto OS. This sounds like a product that would be my saving grace! I am, like the Dr. says “morbidly obese”.. those are such dirty sounding words.. and honestly makes me want to cry even now as I write this message. How could let myself get to this point??..I have also just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.. my Dr. wants me to have lap band surgery.. for quicker results.. although there are lots of hoops to have to jump through to even get that surgery approved through my insurance..do u think a person such as myself could benefit from this product?.. thank you for listening.. and good luck to you and your sister!

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Carmen, thank you so much for your email. I’m so sorry, I know it must be upsetting to feel the way you are right now, but you can change it! There is always hope and I would want to try everything before I resorted to surgery. I think Keto-OS could absolutely help you. Not only to lose weight, but to help with your diabetes. This is an excerpt from the website regarding insulin resistance and how keto can help.

      KETO//OS can enhance insulin sensitivity. In preclinical studies, exogenous ketones have been shown to do this. Richard Veech (scientist at the NIH) showed that feeding exogenous ketone supplements lowers blood glucose while simultaneously lowering blood insulin “research has demonstrated “ If more glucose is removed from the blood with less insulin that suggests that insulin sensitivity has been enhanced. We are experiencing this from testimonies of KETO//OS. As with any medical condition we recommend you consult with your physician.

      If you go to the home page of Keto-OS and scroll down all the way until you can scroll no further, you’ll see the “FAQ” section. This is where I quoted from, one of the questions. If I were you, I would get started right away, for your health and for your well being. I have seen some amazing results from some of the other posters, in fact one of the guys who started Keto was “morbidly obese” and that’s one of the reasons he wanted to get this product on the market. It’s very safe and it works quickly. You don’t “have” to change your diet, but it would always be of more benefit to eat clean while taking the keto. You don’t have to go nuts and follow the ketogenic diet (they recommend it) but that’s the beauty of this product – you will still go into ketosis within 15 minutes and stay there for 24 hours.

      There’s a lot more I could say, but you’ve read my review. I would encourage you to browse the website some more and watch some of the videos. Yes, it’s a bit pricey, but this is your health…there’s no price you can put on that in my opinion.

      I’d be happy to help you along in your journey, in fact I would love for you to try it and see how you like it. Be sure and keep in touch!

    Hi Rachel, I’m 36 years old and need to lose 15-20 lbs of post baby weight. I could relate to what you said about hormones. I only have time to exercise once maybe twice per week with two kids.Do you think Keto OS could work for me? How much would you recommend I buy? And will I have to change my diet? Thanks, Stacy

    • Rachel Vrabel
      Rachel Vrabel

      Stacy, thanks for your question. I KNOW this product will work for you. I’ve seen it changing many lives! With not a lot of time to work out, it’s easier to lose weight by diet/supplements, but even those 1-2 days of exercise can always help 🙂 To answer your question, I would start with buying a Go Pack since this is the best bang for your buck in the long run, and I know you’re going to like it and see quick results. Start by drinking half a packet for a few days to see how you feel, then go up to a full pack. You could drink one a day in the morning and see results, but if you want quicker results, you can drink up to two per day, but one is working for me! You don’t have to change your diet, but a ketogenic diet would melt the fat off even quicker. I haven’t adapted it yet, but Keto-OS does recommend it for best results. Good luck!

      Hey Lauren, thanks for your question. I drink my coffee first thing in the morning (well actually around 9 – I have a very late schedule), drink a glass of plain water, then drink the Keto-OS, then I eat around noon.

      This is more of the “intermittent fasting” method, however Keto-OS can be taken on an empty stomach or with food. You will still go into ketosis.

      I’ve also done it where I drink coffee, drink a green smoothie or eggs and toast for breakfast, then drink the Keto.

      I would recommend you read the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)- scroll down to the very bottom of the Keto website and it’s under Questions/Browse FAQ. There is some great info there!

      Would you like a sample? I’ll send you a separate email! 🙂

      Alana, thanks for your comment. No doubt Paleo can work if you can work around the food restrictions i.e. mostly meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit, and excluding dairy or grain products and processed food. I’m not knocking it, but a lot of people don’t want to have to eat such a strict diet. 😉 Keto-OS brings an alternative to that, and it also has so many other health benefits. But that’s some awesome weight loss you’ve accomplished, congrats!
