As for branched-chain amino acids, you'll find smart people who swear that they're keto-friendly, and others who don't. One of the BCAAs, valine, can be glucogenic, meaning that it can lead to glucose production and potentially contribute to leaving ketosis behind.Research shows that there is a pretty good correlation between acetate in the breath and the level of blood ketone meters, but can vary as you get deeper into ketosis. While they are much more accurate than the urine sticks, they can vary widely against the results of a blood ketone meter. This can sometimes lead to incorrect results, which may be misleading at times.
