Dominic D’Agostino is an associate professor for the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of South Florida and is also a visiting senior research scientist at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition. His experience in the field is one of the many reasons why I think he’s the foremost expert when it comes to the topic of ketosis.

In this part 2 episode, Dominic will tell us about some simple and easy to do tricks to further promote ketosis in your body as well as tell us all about exogenous ketones and how it could affect the future of fitness and supplementation.


“Exogenous ketones can be used to acutely induce nutritional ketosis and then sustain it.” Dominic D’Agostino


In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • The importance of sunlight and getting a good night’s rest for your body’s metabolic health and how it promotes ketosis
  • The many physical and mental health benefits of exogenous ketones particularly on cancer and mental diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease.
  • The kind of research being done on exogenous ketones and why the military is interested in it
  • Just how fast can an exogenous ketone set your body up for ketosis
  • How beginners and athletes alike should take exogenous ketones and when should they be taking it
  • How it can prevent symptoms of hypoglycemia and still make the body and brain function optimally


Key Takeaways:

  • Exogenous ketones can then be used to acutely induce nutritional ketosis and then sustain it.
  • Exogenous Ketones make your brain more neurocognitively dynamic.
  • Exogenous ketones help prevent “glucose withdrawal” symptoms.
