What is Chronic Ketosis?

Chronic Ketosis is where the body relies primarily on ketones for energy instead of carbohydrates, for a long period.

Chronic ketosis is often associated with a ketogenic diet, where a person significantly reduces their intake of carbohydrates, forcing the body to burn fat for fuel.

In the context of sport and exercise, chronic ketosis can be a deliberate strategy for some athletes, especially in endurance sports. By adapting to a fat-based energy system, athletes may aim to better burn fat as a primary fuel (rather than fuel from carbohydrates), potentially improving endurance performance.

However, the effects of chronic ketosis on performance are still debated, and it may not be suitable for all athletes or types of exercise, particularly those requiring quick bursts of energy.
