Chocolate Peanut Butter samples expected around September 19

I’ve been calling the place doing the packaging for the Chocolate Peanut Butter samples several times a day trying to get more details on their schedule. Yesterday I finally got some info: 3 weeks estimated completion date. Dang. That puts it in mid-September, and oddly close to International Talk Like a Pirate Day – I guess that’s cool but it sucks that it’ll take so long. The only possible positive is they often are able to do jobs faster than anticipated so it might be a bit faster, Arrrr – just don’ be holdin’ yer breath matey.

Flavor of the Week August 27-September 2: 10% off sale on Chocolate Toffee 2.1 week packs

For the next week, you can get 10% off the 21 meal “week” size of Chocolate Toffee 2.1. Chocolate Toffee (Heath Candy Bar) is somewhat unique among the flavors: most of the flavors are a result of Chris saying “I want this flavor”; Chocolate Toffee was an unconditional mandate by Miriam and is consequently her favorite flavor. Check out the flavor reviews of 2.1 Chocolate Toffee!

Speaking of reviews, you should check out our store reviews on Google, and the reviews of Keto Chow. Here’s a “taste”:

Toffee scent is exact, pleasant. The chocolate flavor is pretty is light, to me it tastes similar to ( my favorite) Snickerdoodle flavor, with a toffee finish. Probably going to be one of my go-to flavors.

Here’s another review, it should be noted that I publish all of the reviews that come in – bad or good – as they are, typos intact. The only ones I remove are spam posts from people wanting you to buy pills to “enhance performance” and such. This particular review actually comes from a recommendation on Facebook:

I ordered a the sampler of the 10 new flavors, and there hasn’t been a single one that I didn’t like! I love how easy they are to prepare, and I look forward to drinking them everyday! I just placed my second order. Shipping is super fast, and I highly recommend this product and company to anyone!

Is it fall already? Apparently so! Pumpkin Spice Caramel and Eggnog 21 meal bags now available!

Some people are really excited about Pumpkin Spice Caramel Keto Chow (we think Kristina is adorable BTW),

Personally, I’m more excited about the Eggnog =) Regardless of where you stand on the debate, it’s like the holidays came early today! Both Eggnog and Pumpkin Spice Caramel just passed quality control and are available right NOW. This actually is a big moment: ALL of the 18 flavors are now in stock and available in the big bags and everything but Chocolate Peanut Butter is available in the samples. I’m super stoked!

Cookies and Cream 2.1.1 Now in Stock!

We just received a new shipment of Cookies and Cream 21 meal bags. Interestingly, this shipment is the first v2.1.1 Keto Chow we’ve gotten (we switched protein to one that doesn’t have sunflower lecithin and tastes a tiny bit better, Chris is the only one that can tell the difference).

Eggnog 21 meal packs are currently in packaging and should be arriving Monday or so with Pumpkin Spice Caramel later that week or the week after.

Fixed Savory Chicken Soup Keto Chow now in stock

In case you missed it, we received a bunch of the Savory Chicken Soup (you mix it up HOT and you can use butter!) some time ago that had extra riboflavin to make it more yellow. The problem was: that also gave it a metallic aftertaste for some of our users. Now we have the fixed version back in stock in the large 21 meal bags. It’s the same stuff that’s in the samples.

We’ve had people doing all kinds of things with the Savory Chicken Soup – adding veggies, using it to replace cream of chicken soup in recipes, adding hot sauce and chicken. Most just add some salt and maybe some pepper to get it to where they like it and call it good but we’d love to hear what YOU do with it!

Do Low Carb Diets Cause Early Death? (video)

This entry is part 204 of 205 in the series Ketogenic Diet

So there’s been a big to-do the last few days about a new study that purports to indicate that a low carb diet will cause an early death. The news headlines have been rather extreme, and it seems that everyone has forgotten the PURE study from 12 months ago. Regardless: our friend @kendberry.md Ken Berry, MD, put out a video discussing, at length, everything going on in this study.

From the description of the video:

Do low-carb diets really lead to early death? Here is my response to the recent article published in the Lancet Journal of Public Health. I’ve included links below because I want you to actually read the study and verify what I’m saying. This topic is so important, and this field of science is so dubitable, that you can’t take anyone’s word about it, you need to read it yourself.

Harvard University currently is highly esteemed in the fields of medicine and nutrition research. The Lancet is currently highly esteemed in the fields of medicine and nutrition publication. But, if they don’t both stop publishing rubbish such as this as valid science from which we can glean valuable information, the reputations of both will suffer soon. Main-stream media’s blind, thoughtless parroting of whatever Harvard and the Lancet say is actually crippling both institutions, and destroying their credibility.

Your one life and your health are too important to entrust blindly and thoughtlessly to “expert opinion” you need to read and watch and research for yourself, and listen to your own body.

Second Flavor of the Week August 20-August 26: 10% off sale on Root Beer Float 21 meal packages

So earlier today we did a (flavor) of the week BONANZA on the remaining v2.0 samples we still had – after fewer than 4 hours they were all sold out. Actually, they sold out and then the website might have sold a little extra, we’re still figuring that out. Anyhow, they’re all gone now so we decided to run a SECOND sale this week:

For the next week, you can get 10% off the 21 meal “week” size of Root Beer Float 2.1. Really the only thing missing is the very slight hint of carbonation that’s left over after adding ice cream to root beer, other than that, it’s awfully close! Check out the flavor reviews of 2.1 Root Beer Float! Or even better, see what people are saying about it on Reddit: Here and Here

Speaking of reviews, you should check out our store reviews on Google, and the reviews of Keto Chow. Here’s a “taste”:

Great selection… Superior customer service and support… Fast shipping… Special offer weekly and on bulk orders of 4 weeks or more… Great tasting product s

Here’s another review, it should be noted that I publish all of the reviews that come in – bad or good – as they are, typos intact. The only ones I remove are spam posts from people wanting you to buy pills to “enhance performance” and such. This particular review actually comes from Instagram (please note that we do NOT recommend bathing in Keto Chow, no matter how good it tastes =):

I wasnt sure if a meal replacement shake ass for me, I like food and I have hovered my weight for a decade.

After deciding to jump head first into Keto I needed something easier that met my macros but also tasted good.

These where a godsend.

I tried each of the available flavors and found ones I enjoyed and ones that where a pass, but this was the perfect way to determine which I woild want for my “week”

(Flavor) of the Week August 20-August 26: $1 BONANZA on the remaining 2.0 samples – 78% off

OK, to start, let me explain the “bonanza” – it’s from a TED Talk by James Veitch about replying to spammers, you should watch it, I’ll wait =) OK then:

SAMPLE BONANZA!! For the next week, you can get 78% off the remaining Keto Chow 2.0 samples (which is Vanilla 2.0 and Salted Caramel 2.0) – they’re cut down to $1 each. Yes they’re the older version of the product but hey: convenient packaging to take anywhere an all that. Plus they’re quite literally below our cost to make them (like WAY below cost).

UPDATE: um, that went really insanely fast. We’re already sold out of the 2.0 samples.

You should check out our store reviews on Google, and the reviews of Keto Chow 2.0 Samples. Here’s a “taste”:

Great selection… Superior customer service and support… Fast shipping… Special offer weekly and on bulk orders of 4 weeks or more… Great tasting product s
