In 2016, the crew that makes up the Central Coast & Midwest Ketones team were each in their early and mid-30s and busy with life, jobs and families. We had plateaued in our personal fitness regimen, and had started researching diets and nutrition with the hope of finding a way to keep enough fuel in our tanks to support our busy schedules and lives.

After reading Grain Brain by David Perlmutter,  and watching a Ted Talk by Dominic D’Agnostino from TEDx Tampa Bay on the ketogenic diet and starving cancer, our focus shifted to the ketogenic diets and exploring the benefits of exogenous ketones.

There is a lot of conflicting information out on the web, so we wanted to provide a go-to place for exogenous ketone supplement information.

Adhering to a strict ketogenic and very low carb (VLC) diet is extremely tough, especially when training for long distance cycling events, but also when sitting behind a desk during the day! This got us looking into keto supplements. We’ve tried exogenous ketones from all manufacturers, and we personally use the KetoOS products from Pruvit. 


Check back because we are working on a video on our story. We are located in Des Moines, IA, which is the Central Coast of the US!

Thanks for checking us out!
