  • Single day packs are coming

    Single day packs are coming

    Some time ago I asked for feedback on the viability of doing 3-meal single day packs of Keto Chow. Then I went on a couple vacations but now I’m back and ready to go. I sourced the bags back in May and have had them for quite a while but I just didn’t have the […]

  • Glycemic Load and Index

    There is a pretty interesting thread on Reddit about the glycemic load of the official Rosa Labs Soylent 1.5 and how it has twice the  glycemic load as Coca Cola. It got me thinking: I wonder what the glycemic index of Keto Chow would be. I already know that it has virtually no detectable impact on […]

  • Great write up about mixing Keto Chow

    Same guy who did that excellent review of Keto Chow posted another (hilarious yet informative) write up about how he mixes up Keto Chow: http://www.insignificant.info/blog-native/2015/6/29/ketochow-prep-accessories It’s a good read, make sure you don’t miss the footnotes.

  • Coconut Cream as a possible substitute for heavy cream in Keto Chow

    A comment on another post asked about the feasibility of using coconut cream for Keto Chow. It just might work. I looked into “Trader Joe’s Coconut Cream”: I calculated for 250ml of this Coconut Cream for a target kCal/day of 1300 (same as 50ml of heavy cream. It ups the NET carbs from 12g to […]

    On on /r/keto /u/rhoymand has done a series on testing his blood sugar response to various foods (here is one on a Quest Bar). I’ve been curious what effect Keto Chow has on blood so I got a glucose meter (cheap as free!) and some test strips (holy cow, these are expensive!). Today I did a […]

  • Really, really short version of “Why we get fat”

    Found this today via random chance. It’s an article that appeared in Reader’s Digest following the release of Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It – which was a condensed version of Good Calories, Bad Calories. So if you want a really quick summary, from the Author himself, here you go: http://garytaubes.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/WWGF-Readers-Digest-feature-Feb-2011.pdf

  • For my own future reference: Exporting custom data from MyFitnessPal

    I got a ketonix breath acetone meter and I’m wanting a way to track stuff. I also have arriving shortly a blood glucose/ketone tester (with the way overpriced test strips) and I wanted a way to track blood ketone levels and breath acetone levels. After looking for tools that do this that aren’t just an excel spreadsheet […]

  • Recommended Reading: Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It

    I read Gary Taubs’ earlier book Good Calories Bad Calories a few weeks ago, I followed it up with his newer book Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It. While it doesn’t have the same breadth of information as Good Calories it’s more clearly delivered and easier for non-technical-medial people to understand. […]

  • Great opinion from The Times – Cholesterol and Saturated Fat are OK now.

    You can read the full thing here: http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/opinion/columnists/article4449967.ece?shareToken=7dba4f3ccd918bfcc1a900e04c14f6bb Quick quote: Indeed, the evidence that insisting on low-fat diets caused people to eat more carbohydrates, and that led to the explosion in obesity and diabetes, looks pretty strong — so far. After all, the main route by which the body lays down fat is to manufacture […]
