New Discoveries Of The Week: Cool New Things I'm Trying, Books I'm Reading, And More!
The World's First Ketogenic Cocktail (Fantastic Alcohol Alternative)
Beer, wine, and spirits all contain the same type of alcohol, called ethanol, which is produced when either fruits or grains are fermented. If you're into the keto diet, you want to avoid ethanol, because it will kick you right out of ketosis. But if you still like the occasional drink, you need to check out the world's first all-natural, non-ethanol ketogenic alcohol from Ketone Aid. This cocktail isn't just for you “keto people.” Avoiding ethanol will make anyone's drinking habit healthier.
Well, ethanol converts in the liver to a toxic by-product. By contrast, this alcohol converts to ketones, a longevity molecule your body naturally produces after fasting or a keto diet. Ethanol also makes you more hungry, while ketones are an appetite suppressant.
The non-ethanol Hard Ketones drinks contain no sugar, no carbs, and are only 75 calories (100% from the alcohol). They're also lightly sweetened with non-GMO monk fruit, so you can be sure that any deliciously sweet background flavor is only the most nutritious. You basically *FEEL* the same relaxing or socially lubricating effect of alcohol, without any of the nasty side effects and zero hangover potential.
These things are astoundingly amazing and give you the same effects of alcohol with no actual damaging byproducts of metabolism. I’m personally pretty hooked on the Moscow Mule (photo of my nightly kitchen counter routine to the right), but the gin and tonic is really good, too. I like to serve it over ice with a squeeze of lime.
The only problem? I’m getting a big pantry full of wine now because I barely drink actual alcohol anymore. ;)
So click here to get your hands on Ketone Aid's ketogenic alcohol and never worry about staying within your net carb limit again (and use code BEN for free shipping up to $20).
Join Walk for Water by the BGL Team to Help End the Water Crisis
On June 14th, 2022, World Vision’s Global 6K for Water will unite people around the world to walk/run together to raise awareness and funds to help end the water crisis. The statistics about the clean water shortage water are sobering:
•6K (3.72 mi) is the average distance women and children in the developing world have to walk for water.
•The lack of clean water is the #1 preventable cause of death in the world.
•Clean water, sanitation, and hygiene protect kids and their families from diseases like Covid- 19.
•About 800 children under the age of 5 die every day from unsafe drinking water.
But we can change that.
Ben Greenfield Life is officially holding the Walk for Water in partnership with World Vision on June 14th, at 10:00 AM PST, and I am personally inviting you to join us virtually or donate.
We will be doing a 6k, which is the average distance people in the developing world walk to get water, sometimes not even clean/safe water. The $50 registration fee or $50 donation provides clean water for someone for life.

Asking A Quick Favor About My New Book Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits For Spiritual Stamina
I just wanted to quickly thank all of you who ordered a copy of my new book, Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits for Spiritual Stamina.
This book was written and inspired by my own personal temptations, struggles, and failures, and informed by what I’ve studied and learned along the way.
It’s my deepest wish and prayer that it touches your life and gives you the tools and tactics you need to build your own spiritual stamina, strap on your sword, trust God and experience the peace, love, and joy of His creation.
If Endure does make even the smallest impact on your life, I would love it if you could help me spread the word far and wide, by:
