Any energy-laden food you eat will delay the burning of your internal store of fat. Eating ketones may trick your ketone meter, but you're only fooling yourself. If your goal is to lose fat, then eat less food.

Ultimately fasting, especially avoiding carbs works best.

I don't notice much difference between ketone salts and MCT oil energy/ketosis wise.

There is a lot of research however that indicates sodium butyrate is really great at fixing a lot of issues such as fatty liver, so it may be worth taking because of that.

Dave Asprey had a doctor on who said that ketone salts may have issues because they provide too many minerals all at once and that will put on excess load on your kidneys.
