The point of the ketogenic diet is to shift your body from burning glucose as fuel to burning compounds called ketone bodies. From an evolutionary perspective, this ability to shift fuel was a hedge against starvation, for when food wasn’t available and the body needed to burn its own fat.

The majority of biohacking tools, technology, and products are geared towards a male audience and most of the major players in the industry are men. But that’s starting to change. Women are an emerging market in the biohacking space. There are just as many women out there who want to hack their way to maximum human performance, and the biohacking industry is starting to take notice.
