Just started on Keto Chow after my sister told me about it. She had done a 40-day challenge of 3 shakes a day and said it was the easiest thing she’d ever done! Already experiencing the keto lifestyle over the past year, I decided to give it a try. I want to lose 50 pounds. I’m a 52 year old male, 6’ tall and weigh 240. When I started researching Keto Chow I came across the 100-day challenge where the founder lost 50 lbs in 100 days (and improved his blood panels!). I thought, this is for me! What’s 100 days out of my life to reach a goal I’ve had for so long but never managed to reach. Just shakes is a challenge because there is so much psychological chatter that goes on when not eating “real food” (meaning food you have to chew). However, I’m working through it and finding some success. For one week I did two shakes a day with a sensible dinner to prime myself (hadn’t eaten keto for a good six months). Three days ago I started the shakes only. My goal is 100 days, however I’ll evaluate as I go along, and if at any point I want to go back to two shakes and a healthy, keto meal, I’ll do that. But for now, I’m finding the three shakes a day satisfying. The flavors are all incredible and varied so you’re not feeling like you’re drinking the same thing over and over. The transition back into ketosis seems less abrupt this time, and I attribute that to the electrolytes in the shake powder. I’m using grass fed butter as my fat source, and that makes the shakes satiating and extremely satisfying. The only concern I have is the low fiber count in the shakes. Three shakes provides roughly 25 grams of fiber which is the daily requirement for women, however men’s daily requirement is between 35-40 grams. So I’m playing with the idea of adding ground chia seeds (which provide 0 net carbs and 5 grams of fiber per tablespoon) to my shakes to up the fiber. I’ll keep checking my ketones as I do this to make sure it allows me to stay in ketosis. I’m hoping that by the third week of December (when my 100 day challenge is up) I can proudly say I weigh 190 lbs!
