Is It Keto Friendly | Bang Energy Drink | Ketogenic Diet Blood Testing
After many request to test Bang Energy Drink I finally picked up some from my local gym. I tried the 6 flavors the gym had to offer and I did not care for the Peach Mango but all the others tasted great.
We started at Blood Glucose 87 mg/dL and Blood Ketones 1.2 mmol/L. I fasted for at least 10 hours before I took the test. I took 15 to 20 minutes to drink the full drink.
Thirty minutes after I finished the drink my levels were 83 mg/dL and Blood Ketones 0.9 mmol/L.
One hour after finishing the drink my levels were 83 mg/dL and Blood Ketones 1.2 mmol/L. This is a good thing. After an hour it basically had no negative effect.
After 2 hours of finishing the drink my levels were 71 mg/dL and Blood Ketones 0.7 mmol/L. This is were things get strange. I’m not sure why after 2 hours it had a negative effect. My blood sugar was lower but my blood ketones were also 0.5 mmol/L lower.
I will for sure test this drink again in a different setting soon since its the hottest energy drink on the block.
My personal opinion is that one of these a day is probably fine if you are doing well on the Keto diet. If you are just starting the diet its probably something to avoid but if you must have it, have it!
Keto is not complicated. Just eat and drink Keto Friendly things and you will end up in Ketosis.
Let me know if you want something specific tested! Also on the next video which flavor should I test?
