You have to fast, do a lot of dietary interventions, or work out to make your body turn its own fat reserves into ketones. In ketogenesis, your liver has to convert fat stores, it takes a long time. You can get really good at it and get you natural ketones up in 18-24 hours. If you're a carb-eater, you're going to take multiple days, and you're going to get keto flu because your body has to readapt its enzymes and all of its metabolism to focus on being a fat burner.
But if you can have a drinkable ketone, you skip that conversion step. So you can have something that you directly consume that gives you ATP but it's not protein, fat, or carbohydrate. - Geoffrey Woo

"You hear about people bonking out when they're doing marathons or bike rides. You're eating sugar but at a certain point, your body doesn't digest the sugar quickly enough so you bonk out, and your muscles freak out. The way I look at exogenous ketones is that we want this specific signal to happen at this specific time that would not normally be achievable by a diet. It's a metabolism tool to turn fasting or keto diet on for you now while having other substrates." - Geoffrey Woo
"A lot of early research saw that ketones were looking like a very good replacement for glucose. We don't just go brain-dead when we run out of stored glucose for glycogen. It's very clear that when we were hunter-gatherers, we were not just constantly having sugar bombs in our pockets. These people would do multi-day endurance hunts. In some sense, we almost forgot that ancestral wisdom." - Geoffrey Woo
"I've heard a very interesting combination synergy with ayahuasca plant medicine with ketones. There's fasting, purging, and a very clean diet. You're essentially getting the ketogenic state. In a plant ceremony, all these neurons are firing, you need energy, and you need substrate to fuel all that neurotransmitter release. Ketones are very efficient to fuel the power of all of those synapse firing." - Geoffrey Woo
