Does more ketones equal more fat loss?

Having more ketones in your body will not help you lose more weight. The level of ketones in your bloodstream won't tell you how much fat you are burning but how much energy you have.

The main reason people lose weight on a ketogenic diet is well they will feel more satiated and eat less due to stabilized glucose levels and low insulin levels. To lose body fat, you need to stay in calorie deficit so your body needs to burn your body fat for the energy it can’t derive from food. If you sit still and don’t burn any calories your fat loss will be slower than if you take some exercise and use up energy, think of it like a bank account, you need to ‘spend’ the fat!

Normally, one aims to achieve high ketone levels for therapeutic or top-level performance purposes, not enhanced fat loss.
