Chris on the C-Realm Podcast, “Keto Chow in the media” page

I was using the website “Live Chat” to talk to a guy that uses Keto Chow, turns out he does a podcast, not one that has anything to do with Keto or nutrition but, well I’ll just quote from his subreddit:

The C-Realm community concerns itself with such topics as peak oil and resource depletion, the manufacture of consent and worldview management by the corporate media, social transformation, accelerating technological development, and the varieties of psychedelic or entheogenic experience.

The podcast I was on was one of his “Members Only” Vault podcasts. After a month or so he posts them to the Internet Archive which is where you can find the interview I did. Added win that he found a screenshot from Futurama of “Batchelor Chow” which is where the “chow” in Keto Chow comes from. Anyhow, check out the podcast.

 

In other news, I added a “Keto Chow in the Media” page where I can link podcasts like this, news stories, and the like. You’ll find my recent press release about the 4 week experiment there too.

Cryptocurrency (Bitcoin and more) Keto Chow payments expanded

In the past, we’ve had the option of paying for Keto Chow using Bitcoin (BTC) – it’s a pretty manual process where I need to send a payment request via email. Ideally, the shopping cart would have a QR code on the checkout page but the service I was using kept losing payments and was terribly buggy. Yesterday I had a customer ask if we support other cryptocurrencies. We didn’t, but we do now. Here are all the ones we support:

  • Bitcoin (BTC)
  • Bitcoin Cash (BCH)
  • Etherium (ETH)
  • Litecon (LTC)
  • Dash (DSH)

The payment process will stay the same: if you select that payment method you’ll need to message me for the wallet info, I’ll send it over with a QR code you can scan. Once the payment confirms, I’ll change the order status and we’ll ship out your order ASAP (which is typically the next business day unless you do it early in the morning).

N=Me – (week 1 results) 2 weeks of Keto Chow, half heavy cream and half avocado oil

My previous experiment where all of my calories for 4 weeks came via Keto Chow brought out some interesting data in my 3rd week. That week I changed my fat source from heavy cream over to avocado oil, this resulted in some remarkable blood tests. A question arises as to whether my elevated triglycerides, lowered LDL, lowered HDL, and more oddities are a result of the reduced carbohydrates (under 2g net a day average), or the composition of the fats I was eating: Saturated vs. Monounsaturated, vs. Polyunsaturated. I’m planning on doing a more in-depth experiment in early 2018 but this shorter experiment will serve to further solidify a hypothesis and steer the latter test.

I just got back my week 1 blood tests and have those posted on my Experiment Results page. I expect I’ll get the final blood tests on Wednesday of next week.

For the most part, it’s been nice to be back on exclusively Keto Chow. The only real downside is that this experiment falls right in the middle of the run-up to Christmas with the accompanying parties and dinners. That sucks in that I’ve passed on some really awesome Keto food that I normally would have eaten, but what better time of year to skip all that? =)

Nothing says “Happy Holidays” quite like bringing a blender bottle to a big dinner and not eating anything else =).

Flavor of the Week December 11-December 17: 10% off sale on Base Powder

For the next week, you can get 10% off the 21 meal “week” size of Keto Chow Base Powder. What’s “Base Powder”? Check out this post! The short version is: you add a little scoop to your chosen protein powder and it makes Keto Chow, with all the vitamins, minerals, etc… Want to save even more? Order exactly 5, 13 or 18 and get an additional 5% off – this is how many Base Powder packages fit into our standard boxes. If you order 7 or 19 or another number other than those EXACT quantities, you won’t get the 5% (and shipping will cost more).

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

Keto Chow is the best keto meal replacement product I have ever tried. And I’ve tried my share. I now need to look no further. These meal replacement shakes are customizable to an individual’s dietary needs, which is very important to some people. The instructions and options were a little overwhelming to me at first but the product was worth it and everything seems so simple now. Keto Chow is my go-to meal every time.

Here’s another, 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:

I’ve tried Soylent (powder and liquid), Schmilk, Jimmy Joy, Feasy, and Keto Fuel. Keto Chow is easily my favorite meal replacement regardless of diet. The flavors are amazing, the texture is perfectly smooth, and the packaging is convenient and really professional looking. If I had any complaint, it would be that some flavors are a bit too sweet for me, but YMMV.

Flavor of the Week December 4-December 10: 10% off sale on Vanilla 2.0 week packs

Yep, I realize we recently had Vanilla as the flavor of the week, but it’s the flavor we have the most on-hand! For the next week, you can get 10% off the 21 meal “week” size of Vanilla 2.0. Check out the reviews of 2.0 Vanilla!

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

My doctor has been trying to get me to go ketogenic for health reasons for over a year but it seemed too complicated. Keto Chow makes it possible to go keto very easily. I have been on keto chow for 3 weeks and have lost 20 pounds so far. I have more energy and feel great. I could not have stuck to a ketogenic diet so easily if I did not have my keto chow shakes! I’m very grateful. As a plus, they taste great!

Sample *ALL* the things has Chocolate Peanut Butter again

We just received a bunch of samples, among them we finally now have Chocolate Peanut butter back in stock (it’s been out since September 7, which is sad). That means that the “Sample all the things” bundle really is ALL the things again! For any that are worried: I did raise the price back up to account for it having 8 samples again. If you got a sample bundle between September 7 and now, you didn’t accidentally pay for a sample you didn’t get. That would suck.

Sample availability update, after thanksgiving mayhem

TL;DR: More samples should be available on Thursday.

We’ve had an interesting few days! Our Black Friday sale went quite well, much better than last year, and Saturday and Sunday the orders kept coming in… then Monday happened.

One of our Keto Chow users (and the guy that started me down the rabbit hole that is using avocado oil) posted to the /r/keto subreddit some pictures of himself and his girlfriend and their transformation doing Keto. He also did a shout-out to Keto Chow which he says has been instrumental in helping him do keto effectively.

The thread went a little nuts, traffic to our site went a little nuts, orders for Keto Chow went a lot nuts. I posted on the thread:

In case there was any doubt that /u/JohnnyRockets911 is NOT shilling for Keto Chow: there’s no way I would have told him to post this on the day we were doing free shipping plus a sale on the sample bundles =)

Problem with all this is, now I can’t tell what’s the result of Cyber Monday, what’s the result of the Reddit thread, and what’s a combination of the two! Yes, it’s a good problem to have =) By 2:00 pm, the 8 foot bed of our pickup was completely full and orders were still coming in faster than we could ship them. So we called it a day and will ship the rest that came in today.

Now, as for samples: The “Sample all the Things” bundle sold out last night, it was based on the number of Chocolate samples we had remaining. The bad news is that it can take weeks or even months to get more. The Good news is: I ordered more a few months ago and we are supposed to be getting them on Wednesday afternoon. As soon as we actually for realsies have them on a truck I’ll mark the samples and the sample bundles as back in stock so they can start shipping out on Thursday.

I was iffy at first about this produc before tasting it, but one sip and I immediately ordered a week bag and several other flavors to try. I will definitely order again.

Here’s another, 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:

Very easy to order. Shipped immediately and arrived promptly and in good condition.

N=me experiment, final results – Dave’s making me do it again =)

OK, I got the blood test results for my final week back – you can see all 5 results on this spreadsheet. I haven’t done a thorough write-up on the results of the experiment yet because I have indeed convinced Dave Feldman to give me his thoughts. The short version is: my week 3 results (pure avocado oil, spiked my triglycerides, tanked glucose, etc…) got Dave pretty excited. Something about hypothesis validation or other =) He asked me if I was willing to go back and try it again. For Dave? Absolutely.

So, I took a week off experimenting and I’m going to start it right back up again: this time I’m going to do a week of Keto Chow only with 1/2 of the fat from avocado oil and half from heavy cream – the idea is to see if I hit a half-way point relative to the lunacy of my 3rd week results. Then I’ll get a blood test, do it for another week, and another blood test.

Meanwhile, Dave has promised to analyze my results. It may be a week or more as he’s busy with family and I don’t want to call down the wrath of his wife upon me =)
