I’ll give shipping Ketofood a shot

So I was asked if I am shipping Ketofood. My stance up until now was that I wouldn’t and mainly because of the logistics of getting the oil to people. MCT oil is a rather specialized product that’s very difficult to find away from the Interwebs. MCT oil is also a critical component of ketosis. It gets you into ketosis quicker, helps you maintain ketosis and is very expensive.

We talked back and forth about some stuff and I asked him if he would prefer a more expensive option that included the oil or cheaper powder without the oil. His response was something I actually hadn’t considered. He said he was looking for a low-carb option but wasn’t “hell bent” on ketosis.

Duh.

Including the oil is more convenient for the end user. It’s all there, no additional stuff is required (except some way to measure the oil). Not including the oil opens up additional options for your own customization (you want MCT+Olive? MCT+Canola? Skip the MCT and go straight canola?). It also reduces complexity and even reduces cost: the Oil is shipped once to you by amazon or whatever instead of coming to me and getting repackaged and shipped.

So this actually sounds viable. What do you think? let me know.

 

Oh, and I added https to the site for all pages. Secure server, YAY!

    Hey Chris, I might be interested in this. With my type 2 diabetes, I’m less focused on the ketosis aspect than the low-carb aspect. What kind of pricing are you considering?

    Thanks,

      For kicks I put up a product page for samples and 7 days worth. I still don’t know how much it would cost with the oil included, without I have it at $70/week. I looked at several of the various ketogenic mixes out there (none that are currently shipping include oil) and the costs involved. I’m guessing that including the oil would be another $20 or $30 depending on what I could find to package it.

    Can I order bulk? 2-4 weeks at a time?
