Do Low Carb Diets Cause Early Death? (video)

This entry is part 204 of 204 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

Flavor of the Week August 13-August 19: 10% off sale on Natural Strawberry 2.1 week packs

For the next week, you can get 10% off the 21 meal “week” size of Natural Strawberry 2.1. We introduced the Natural Strawberry as a way to test out using monk fruit as a sweetener instead of sucralose. Occasionally we’ll get someone that likes the concept of Keto Chow but personally is avoiding certain sweeteners – this gives them the option of doing so. Monk Fruit does not taste the same as sucralose though; it’s far better than stevia in the taste testing we did, but it does only work with certain flavors and strawberry was a good fit. Check out the flavor reviews of 2.1 Natural Strawberry!

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

Tastes great, priced just about right. Speedy shipping, and the sample packs are perfect for trying flavors, and for portability. Super people to work with. 🙂

Kinda mad at @ketochow right now because their heavenly luscious, scrumptious, melted icecream tasting chocolate shake is so fantastic that now my @atkinsnutritionals chocolate “delight” tastes like someone filled a kiddie pool up with hose water, 12 toddlers played in it, and someone mentioned chocolate 3 houses down. Then they bottled it. I. Am. Ruined. I LOVE #ketochow 😍😍😍😍 #ketoaf #ketochow #chocolate#whyisitsogood #isthisdrugs#notsponsored #wishiwasthough#imhooked #iwanttobatheinit

Large 21 meal bags of Root Beer Float Keto Chow now available

It’s the day I’ve long awaited: Root Beer Float Keto Chow in the large bags is now available. Root Beer is one of my favorite flavors of all time and it was at the top of my list for flavors I wanted to get into Keto Chow 2.1. What does it taste like? According to Buddy R.: Root Beer Bottlecaps candy, I agree =).

Super delicious! Actually enticed me to purchase some other flavors as well as the new 2.1 sample pack that just became available. I am a huge fan. Smooth mix, great flavors, keeps me full and with sustained energy. I definitely recommend the Orange Cream!

Natural Strawberry (sweetened with monk fruit) now available in the 21 meal bags

We actually got the Natural Strawberry yesterday but I didn’t have a chance to do a blog post about it then, didn’t want the weekend to pass without making the official announcement!  The smaller samples came in earlier this week and now we have the large 21 meal “week” bags. The Natural Strawberry is the same flavor and everything else as our regular Strawberry but it uses pure monk fruit as the sweetener instead of pure sucralose. We tested using monk fruit on all of the new flavors but the additional expense and difference in taste made us decide to start smaller and see how it goes.

Chocolate Toffee and (most of) the 2.1 Samples are now available!

This entry is part 203 of 204 in the series Ketogenic Diet

We actually got in Chocolate Toffee this morning but didn’t do an announcement until we had the samples in-hand and available so we could announce both at the same time (otherwise people who wanted both would have ordered just the Toffee and then been frustrated to have to do another other and get them combined, this is easier =)

So without further delay: we now have available the Chocolate Toffee (21 meal bag) plus we also have the individual samples of all the flavors except Chocolate Peanut Butter (there was a problem running it, they’re running it through the mixer again and we will try it at the next available slot in a week or two),  and lastly we the new variety bundle: Sample the New Things. The original sample bundle will be coming just as soon as we get the Chocolate Peanut Butter samples.

Using Keto Chow while camping, hiking, traveling, etc…

I have people asking for solutions they can use for doing keto while camping, hiking, staying in a hotel (with or without refrigeration), or otherwise traveling. I thought I’d share some of my recent experience. The headline image above is from when I was making Keto Chow for 2 of my kids and my wife.

July 2018 has been a little crazy for me; with Keto Con, a 4 day-30 mile hike, family vacation, scout camp, Ketofest, and Low Carb USA all strung together. Particularly challenging was the hike, and later the scout camp with my oldest son since I wouldn’t have any refrigeration nor anything resembling a kitchen. The camp also wanted $6 a meal for amazing dishes like spaghetti, or grilled cheese sandwiches. My plan for the days I would be at camp was to bring:

They did have lots of clean, cold, mountain spring water available. The basic routine every meal went like this:

  1. I would grab my dry blender bottle.
  2. I’d put in the amount of avocado oil I wanted, it was marked on the side of the blender bottle with a marker to make measuring super easy.
  3. Add a scoop of Keto Chow powder.
  4. Add the water.
  5. Shake it up – from step 3 to step 5 you want to minimize time as much as possible to avoid clumps, try to hit fewer than 5 seconds.
  6. Go help some kid with something for 5 minutes (this lets the protein dissolve more so it’s not gritty).
  7. Drink
  8. Use the soap, water, and bottle brush to wash out the bottle – this is easier with hot water but I’ve used cold without problems.
  9. Leave the lid off and let the bottle dry.
  10. You’re ready for the next meal.

In the cases that I had access to refrigeration, using heavy cream was also an option instead of avocado oil. That entire sequence (steps 1-10) only takes maybe 5 minutes, not counting however long you take to drink the meal and it’s super handy when it’s raining but you already have your Keto Chow in your tent with you

So, there you go – a week’s worth of Keto Chow weighs around 1000g with 21 meals worth of avocado oil clocking in around 2000g (about a half gallon worth). Provided you have access to water, you can stick to a strict Ketogenic diet easily (oh and depending on the flavor you get, your net carbs for the DAY will be around 1.5-4g (more for chocolate compared to salted caramel and the others).
