Keto Rapid Max Review
The ketogenic diet has been around for a century. For most of that time, it was little known and used strictly for medical purposes. About a decade ago, however, that all changed.
As people's lifestyles became increasingly sedentary and waistlines began expanding all over the world, the keto diet emerged from the shadows to offer hope. As more and more people got on the keto bandwagon, more and more products emerged from the shadows with it.
Many of them promising the benefits of keto without the hard work of restricting carb intake. Keto Rapid Max is just the latest in a long line of such products. But can it succeed where so many others have failed?
What is Keto Rapid Max?
Keto Rapid Max is a dietary supplement that claims to be able to deliver the user to a state of ketosis.
Science tells us the only way to produce a ketogenic state (where your body is burning fat for fuel) is by drastically restricting your intake of carb-heavy foods.
The makers of Keto Rapid Max say "Not so fast."
Their supplement can allegedly produce many keto-like side effects without the user having to restrict their carb intake to 30 or 40 grams for days at a time. But is that possible?
Let’s get something out of the way right at the start: It’s not possible for even the most powerful keto supplement to produce a state of ketosis if the user continues to eat their regular high carb diet. What a keto supplement might be able to do, particularly if it leverages BHB ketones, is:
- Help a person on the keto diet achieve ketosis quicker
- Burn fat faster and
- Compensate for those times when they may exceed their daily carb limit for whatever reason
So, can Keto Rapid Max do any of those things? The ingredient list will tell us a lot.
What are the ingredients in Keto Rapid Max?
The makers of Keto Rapid Max boast their supplement contains a number of all-natural ingredients that will initiate rapid keto-style weight loss. But what are those all-powerful ingredients?
- Forskolin - The primary weight loss ingredient in Rapid Max is forskolin. Forskolin has long been popular with practitioners of traditional medicine.
It’s derived from the root of a particular type of mint that grows in central Asia. The thing is, there’s virtually no credible evidence linking forskolin to ketosis or ketogenic diet type weight loss.
- Apple cider vinegar - A few years ago a Japanese study suggested that if you loaded up lab rats with lots of acetic acid (a compound found in apple cider vinegar), they lost weight.
That caused a flood of apple cider vinegar products to hit the market. Keep this in mind though: unless you're willing to take several grams a day of pure acetic acid, you don't stand much chance of losing weight. In Keto Rapid Max, you only get a tiny dose.
- Caffeine - Now we get to the real meat of the issue. Caffeine is used in many diet pills to cover up for the shortcomings of other ingredients. That seems to be the case here as well.
How to use Keto Rapid Max?
This is a basic capsule-style supplement. The manufacturer suggests you take 2 pills with water twice per day.
Because it contains caffeine, however, we'd caution against taking it too close to bed time.
Perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind is that if you don’t make changes to your diet and continue to load up on carbs, Keto Rapid Max won’t produce ketosis or help you lose weight.
Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels.
Does Keto Rapid Max Work?
Keto Rapid Max works in a very limited way that isn’t going to satisfy most people. It’s never going to produce keto diet-style weight loss.
But there is a slim chance that Keto Rapid Max could enhance your low-carb diet weight loss efforts if you stick to your low-carb diet.
What it won’t do is shield you from being bounced out of ketosis if you exceed your carb limit for the day the way a product like Keto Bodytone will. Nor will it initiate ketosis if you are still eating lots of carbs.
The thing to remember is that there are no shortcuts to ketosis. Like the keto flu, it's the result of restricting carbohydrate intake. There are, however, some supplements (like Keto Bodytone) that will essentially work like fuel injectors for ketosis. But Keto Rapid Max is not one of them.
