Ketogenic diets and fasting have gained a lot of attention and foods like coconut oil, MCT Oil, Grassfed butter and the like have come along for the ride. But some people are still worried about adverse health effects considering this movement runs entirely against conventional health "wisdom." Our biology might just *prefer* ketones to glucose/carbohydrate.

[BLINKIST] Blinkist is an app I've been using lately to discover new books and review the ones I've already read. It gives you the key points in text or audio form from tons of different non-fiction books. Since I'm always going through so many books to get these done, it's very useful to get me exposed to more concepts beforehand to know if it's worth my time to buy and read through that particular book.
