Keto Chow Review Finally A Keto Meal Replacement Shake
I love it when I find a cool product. Keto Chow Is definitely a cool product. For years I have looked for a meal replacement product that is keto friendly. Think Slim Fast only not full of sugar and crap. When your busy and on the road having a keto meal replacement would come in handy.
When I first saw the product soylent I thought “SOYLENT IS PEOPLE! IT”S PEOPLE!”. Hopefully, you get that joke. After looking over the ingredients in soylent and the macro nutrient profile I had no interest. It is just more carb-laden junk. I could save money and get some Atkins frozen meals or shakes. Although they are low carb they are not the best.
What Is Ketosis? How To Follow A ketogenic Diet Plan
I get asked what is ketosis pretty often. My girlfriend asked me recently about it. I was on my way and out the door and knew I couldn’t answer it properly. What is keto and what is a ketogenic diet plan is both a simple and very complicated question. For such a fundamental part of the human physiology to still have so little known is mind blowing.
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates.
Being in ketosis means that your body has switched from a glucose burning system to a fat burning one.
How To Get Into Ketosis
The super easy answer for you nonreading mongoloids is this Eat under 20 grams of carbs, Eat between .6 and 1 gram of Protein per Pound Of Bodyweight and Have the rest of your calories come from healthy Fats.
That is a very simplified version of What is ketosis. To be more specific you will need to use a macro calculator to determine your actual macros to aim for. Also, you will need to track the food you eat on a ketogenic diet plan.
How To Make Foolproof Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Fat Bombs
These Foolproof Chocolate Peanut Butter Keto Fat Bombs are amazing. I tried to make fat bombs once before. I used coconut oil and sugar-free hazelnut coffee flavoring. They were an abomination. The hazelnut flavor globed up in little bubbles. So not every bite had any sweetness. They were too hard to eat. It was a total failure. That’s why I have never made them again. Not even these ones. Nope, My girlfriend Serenity made these.
She said it was super easy and wrote down her recipe. So easy even a caveman like me could do make them. Little did she know I would take her hand written recipe and make it into a blog post. She’s probably turning red right now reading this. (more…)
This week Mike and I discuss Survival and diabetes. With Mike recently being diagnosed with Diabetes we tackle how it can affect your survival. We begin by defining some terms. Like what exactly is diabetes. Everyone knows someone with it yet many have no idea what it is and how it affects you.
We go on to talk about some ways to manage it not just now but in a disaster scenario. Most of the strategies focus on type 2 diabetics. There is not much to be done for a type one insulin diabetic.
We hear from listener Matt on alternatives to toilet paper. Both short term and long term. Mike and I begin by talking about a funny book by a 16th century French writer. In it he list the many things you can wipe your ass with. The top thing to wipe with is a gooseneck. The whole thing is crude and hilarious.
If you want to be heard on air and have your question answered give me a call at (615) 657-9104 and leave me a voice mail. Yes the msg is funny and it will mess you up.
Yesterday I interviewed Jimmy Moore on his new book Keto Clarity. Today I’ll publish my review of Keto Clarity. If this is your first time hearing the word Keto I’ll explain it. I’ll convince you why you want to check out Keto Clarity. Even if you are not overweight. There is a lot more to the ketogenic diet than weight loss. That’s icing on the low carb cake.
What is this keto diet anyway. Well I’ve talked about is any times before on my journey of weight loss. Our good friends over at Wikipedia define it as such.
Ketosis/kɨˈtoʊsɨs/ is a metabolic state where most of the body’s energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to a state of glycolysis where blood glucose provides most of the energy. It is characterised by serum concentrations of ketone bodies over 0.5 millimolar with low and stable levels of insulin and blood glucose.
So it’s an alternative fuel source for the body. Switching from glucose to ketone bodies. Switching to high-octane in my opinion. How do you get into a ketogenic state? In easy terms you eat low carbs, moderate protein and high fat. Notice I didn’t give specific numbers there. For each person those numbers will be different. In Keto Clarity Jimmy covers the many ways to measure ketone levels. He goes over which ones work best and which are not that good. You can wing it but it’s best to test.
With Keto Clarity Jimmy knocked out a tome of wisdom. He gathered the best and brightest in the low carb field. He researched all the science. He himself conducted a year-long experiment with thousands of data points. I do not have the patience to weigh myself everyday. Measure blood glucose and ketone levels more than once a day. His N=1 experiment was detailed and impressive. In Keto Clarity he not only covers the basics of getting into ketosis but some great tips of optimizing it. He digs deep into the science on why it works and is better for humans. How does a keto diet affect different illness like epilepsy and schizophrenia?
If you geek on the science behind why things work you will love this. If you just like to know what to do you will love this book. With shopping lists and sample meal plans you can hit the ground running. I like that the chapters are short and to the point. The end of every chapter is a bullet point list of that chapter. That is the best thing I’ve seen in a book. If you’re not familiar with Jimmy’s work you don’t know how entertaining he is. That comedy comes out in this book well. I learn best when It has some humor in it. I could never learn from Ben Stein. So go check out Keto Clarity and give it a try.
