Let me get this out of the way first before I begin to tell you about something that I think is the best ketogenic supplement out there….
I want to give you a little color on my background before I talk more about what I use to help me with a ketogenic diet.
This is not ANYTHING that will CURE cancer. There aren’t any cures out there. That is a fact. Sure there are some people who have gotten rid of cancer from a variety of diets but they are untested and unproven, and as I’ve said in one of my other posts, they can be dangerous since they have no guarantees since there are way to many variables with cancer just like there are way to many variables in nutrition.
The one thing you can guarantee yourself with a good diet, a good quality of life.
The therapy I used to take control of my cancer is hormone therapy. That means I have no testosterone in my body. It worked great to fight back the prostate cancer that was ravaging my body. I don’t take shots, My doc warned me against them and said he could do an operation to make sure my body doesn’t produce testosterone anymore.
There’s a whole new set up problems I have to worry about with this therapy.
Drum roll please:
- Loss of muscle mass.
- Increased body fat
- Increase risk of Type 2 Diabetes
- Decreased bone mass
- Mood changes
- Trouble concentrating
- Risk of Cardiovascular problems
You can’t win for losing huh?

Enter the ketogenic diet
There are variations of this diet like the popular Atkins diet, and other names like low carb or Paleo. The simple explanation for it is it is a diet where your body switches its primary source of fuel from glycogen (sugar) to fat. In my opinion, all the problems with zero testosterone can be solved with a diet high in fats. The toughest part of a ketogenic diet is to get your body in ketosis and keep it there. That usually takes 6 weeks since your body want to hold on to using glucose as fuel.
Then I discovered Kegenix online. Their made product Kegenix the best ketogenic supplement I ever used and make a great first impression, and to be honest the only one haha. Honestly though I don’t see shopping around for others.
I first learned about the Kegenix company from the Joe Rogan podcast where he interviewed a WEALTH of Keto information, Dr. Dom D’Augistino. Here is the podcast. Dom knows his shit.
This stuff ROCKS
It’s a power that you can mix into water, and what it does is put your body into full blown ketosis in an hour. If you ever look at reviews, many people say they get a boost of energy when they take it. I don’t feel it at all, but I do feel a slow, controlled energy if that makes sense. The other stuff it talks about like killing cravings yeah it definitely does, but it doesn’t kill the mental cravings. That is something that you have work out on your own.
I don’t have pictures of how I started to where I am now. That is why I am going to have a different blog post to show results. I’ll try to get some “before” pictures this weekend and start logging my progress. So far through I have lose about 15 lbs and it makes me feel great.
How does this help a dude with Prostate Cancer?
As I previously stated at the beginning of this blog post, with zero testosterone, a dude with cancer can get out of the frying pan and into the fire. You can go from worrying about cancer to worrying about cardiovascular problems, type 2 diabetes, and osteoporosis for starters. This stuff will balance your hormones to keep everything straight and your health good. How can I tell this stuff works? If I am not in proper ketosis, I get massive anxiety and depression, so I can tell if something is not working. I can drink this stuff and actually forget about eating the entire day. It puts my body in full ketosis and I feel like a million bucks because it balances me out. I end up feeling normal.
Wither you have prostate cancer or not, this stuff is pricey but honestly it’s working for me and I am enjoying this product, and it helps me with weight loss. I am going to get more in depth with numbers with a new project that I am going to call…..
THE ROAD TO 200 lbs.
It’s inspired by a guy I admire on youtube named Furious Pete. He had a personal challenge for dead lifting 700 lbs. He did that, and he’s on the road to benching 500 lbs. I want and need to lose weight since I am writing this on January 10th and currently I am currently 277 lbs. In the post I will keep you up to date with how I am doing and what I am using in my diet.
