If you give a bodybuilder a cookie… this is book I’m working on. A children’s book about the moral dilemma of one man who had to pick between cookies and abs. I think it’ll be popular... Cookies are one of my weaknesses mainly because the serving size usually throws me off. If one serving is 2 cookies I will look for the largest cookie, preferable a cookie stuck to another cookie, but it’s still one cookie because even Siamese sweets need love and before long I’ve probably eaten more than one serving.

Ketogenic diets get their name from a group of unique compounds called ketone bodies, commonly just called ketones. Ketones are a metabolic by-product that your body creates when it is burning fat (either stored body fat or dietary fat) at very high rate. This generally only happens during long intense exercise, or when carbohydrates are severely restricted, because the presence of the hormone insulin (which is released by your body when you eat carbs) squashes fat burning and ketone production.
