  • Powdered Cream not suitable for Keto soylent

    I guess I’m supposed to do clickbait titles if I want more traffic, but I prefer to get the conclusion out there and then back it up in the body. A question came up about how well powdered cream could be used for Keto Chow instead of the liquid heavy cream. The Amazon Page doesn’t show […]

  • The apps and tools I’m using to track my progress

    A coworker asked me a while ago about all the stuff I’m using, I figure I might as well document it. Here are the Apps, monitors and other things I’m using to track stuff about my health. Activity Monitor I grabbed a used Fitbit Flex off eBay about a month ago to see if I […]

  • Soylent anniversary – 365 days (mostly) on DIY soylent

    On January 13th, 2014 I mixed up my first batch of People Chow 2.3.0 you can read my first blog post about it here. People Chow 2.3 wasn’t very good. It had a lot of almond meal in it that gave me heartburn and specified a particular brand of corn flour that was exceptionally difficult to […]

  • For fun I tried making Keto Chow cookies

    Just for fun I decided to see what making Keto Chow into a solid would be like. I did People Chow cookies several months ago so I thought I’d try that form. I just put a meal’s worth of powder into a bowl, added the oil and the heavy cream and mixed it up. [fusion_builder_container […]

  • Blood test for a year on DIY soylent, 1/4 of that doing keto

    I just got back my blood tests and they look good (at least as far as I can tell =). The last time I had it all tested like that was March 2014 after 3 months of People Chow. So here’s how they stack up to each other: Name 1/6/2015 3/20/2014 target Sodium 141 142 […]

  • Tried Vanilla Keto Chow. I think it’s good enough, beta’s over: v1.0

    Last night I mixed up 3 meals of vanilla flavored Keto Chow, it’s really good. My wife tried some and said “mmm, that’s good!” Later she asked about the possibility of me mixing her up a few blender bottles for her to have on hand for meals. I’ve decided that after the most recent changes to […]

  • A year in review

    Hey, how about a “year in review” post? I started mixing soylent almost a year ago, starting January 13, 2014. You can read my full exploits Here (in chronological order!). It’s been an interesting year with a lot of downs and a few ups (most notably there in October when I gained back everything I […]

  • First batches of Keto Chow using Dynamize protein

    Last night I mixed up the first batches of Keto Chow using the Dynamize whey protein I’m going to start using. An adventurous soul ordered week of mint chocolate and I did two smaller 1-day batches of strawberry and mint chocolate for testing.

  • Mixed up some chocolate Keto Chow

    A commenter on my last post asked if it’s possible to mix up without any coconut flour at all. Yes but you have to increase the psyllum husk to 18g. I wasn’t sure what that would taste like but I was interested to try it. Unfortunately my shipment of Chocolate Mint, Strawberry and Vanilla proteins will […]

  • Updates on Keto Chow

    One cool thing about Keto Chow is the recipe has the added benefit of being customizable for people with different caloric requirements. Without any oil or cream it’s right around 500 calories/day and still hits all the right nutrients except calories (obviously), protein, and the different fatty acids. Following the directions you’ll get 1355 calories/day […]
