Keto diet on maintenance cals
If one starts keto diet on maintenance cals, and after 2-3 weeks when brain is deriving 75% of its energy from ketones, and ketones are produced from FFA, wouldnt that 75gms of ketones cause fat loss? I mean 4.5cals/gm of ketone is being produced from 9cals/gm of FFA. Thus to produce 75gms of ketones, body will metabolise 150gms of fat. I know there is some disconnect in the theory. I am unable to find. Please pinpoint.
And sorry if this has answered before. I looked into google search and couldnt find it.
