Do carnivorous animals run on ketones or do they run on a mixture of fat and glucose (gluconeogenesis)? Are they simply more efficient at converting protein to glucose than humans? Any information would be appreciated.

Carnivores have short large intestines because the large intestine is essentially a fermenting chamber full of bacteria that digests fibrous matter. They don't eat plants so their need for a long large intestine is small. The place of fat... (more)

Before I was "keto-adapted" I experienced this. Before adaptation, your body isn't getting adequate fuel. Starvation is stressful.

Definitely agree with the comments on organ meat from time to time, also bone broth might be a decent addition? Just keep the bones of all those fluffy animals you eat and make stock... makes the next bunch of fluffy animals even tastier!
