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…)
I first found this recipe in Dana Carpenders Fat Fast cook book. It was last year when I was looking for high fat recipes. I have tried only a few recipes in that book. Curried cream of chicken soup I make daily during the winter months. It’s so fast and easy. This soup really warms you up. Curried Cream Of Chicken Soup was an important tool in my weight loss. Curried cream of chicken soup is almost 90% fat. With the coconut oil in it getting into and staying in ketosis is easy.
Curried cream of chicken soup is easily modified. The recipe I give is slightly different from Dana’s. You can change it to what you have available. The way I make it is not 100% paleo. You can swap out the butter and heavy cream for more coconut oil and coconut milk if you want. I like the flavors they add though. I’ve added some grated grassfed cheese to the top before and it was amazing. Also garnishing with bacon works. Let’s make a bowl.
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.
Up today we have an interview with Jimmy Moore from the Living La Vida Low Carb blog and Podcast. Jimmy has a new book coming out called Keto Clarity. I got in an early for review and it’s great. The book review should be out this week. Jimmy has been in the low carb field for a very long time. Years ago when I first got into Atkins I found his YouTube Channel. He had some great tips and recipes. He was also both passionate and funny. Like Jimmy though I made some slips and put back on the weight. It took a few tips from Jimmy to get it back under control. Keto Clarity has all those tips and more.
In Keto Clarity Jimmy breaks down everything you could ever want to know about being ketogenic. The book is filled with science for those that want it. It also explains very easy to understand. The chapters end with breakdown bullet points. It is filled with experts in the medical and low carb world. Jimmy shares some menu foods as well. One thing I always wonder is what people actually eat.
Today’s post might piss off some of you. Before you go off just thinking, that James guy is a dick, let my words sink in. Im not here to put anyone down, I want to us all to be lifted up. Today I’m talking about weight loss and physical fitness. Especially since healthcare and the Obamacare tax is a hot topic these days. It’s been my main concern in prepping lately. I know many don’t see health and fitness as a prep, and they are dead wrong. Literally. Neglecting a huge facet of survival, one which many others rely on, could be the last mistake you make. Today I’m going to go over some reasons why you might want to shore up this hole in your plan and how to go about doing that.
