42 Days of Keto Chow – Day 33 – finalized plans for “carb week”

Based on the way I’ve been feeling the last few days I think I was “lucky” enough to have a run-in with the stomach flu at the same time I started the liquid coconut oil. Anyhow, I am feeling better today, likely in no small part from me doing the Savory Chicken Soup flavor of Keto Chow for breakfast and lunch.

I mixed up the 191g of dextrose I was planning on using for each meal next week… yeah, it was a LOT, so much that it wouldn’t even dissolve in the water and it was WAY too sweet. So I’m going to take a page out of Dave Feldman’s book and use some candy. I spent a bunch of time at the 7-11 across the street and ultimately decided that I’m going to use skittles, sprite, unsweetened almond milk, and a daily bag of M&Ms. It’s funny to me that using dextrose straight is unpalatable but put it in soda and candy and it’s just fine.

  • Why candy and Sprite? Same reason I’m using dextrose: pure carbs with no other nutrients. My other nutrition is covered by Keto Chow, I’m just looking for calories (in this case from carbs).
  • Why the Almond Milk? to make the Keto Chow taste better in the absence of heavy cream.
  • Why the M&Ms? to break things up a bit but mostly to add some fat, otherwise my fat intake is excessively low and I might start to get weird effects. I’ll be hitting 16% fat which is about right per the AHA and ADA recommendations.

Here’s what each day should look like:

    Chris,
    Went via Lehi last Saturday and could not find the bakery which makes Keto Deserts. Stopped at Country Bakery on Main st. but they did not know what I was talking about. Can you provide the name and address of the Keto Bakery in Lehil
    Thanks,

    Would you provide an overview of what your goals were/are with your 42 day fast? I have trouble following why you change what you have each week with your KetoChow powder, especially this week, with the addition of dextrose. People that want to use your product are trying to live keto. Even adding the dextrose as a control does not make any sense to me.
