Keto Clarity Academy – Keto Coaching

While we were in Austin for Keto Con we met a bunch of really awesome people. Among those were the team doing Keto Clarity Academy.

If you’re somewhat seasoned in all things Keto you will likely have come across the book Keto Clarity by Jimmy Moore and Dr. Eric Westman. Really good stuff and one that the Ketovangelist recommended on a recent Book Recommendations podcast.

Jimmy, along with his wife Christine Moore, Julie Jordan, & Melanie Miller, are the leadership for a new service offering keto coaching. I’ll go ahead and steal their own description:

KETO Clarity Academy is a professional keto lifestyle school specializing in helping clients achieve their personal goals and improving their health gains, knowledge of the science of a ketogenic lifestyle and success. The scope of our business offerings covers areas such as KETO Lifestyle Coaching, personal improvement coaching, motivation, weight loss, online coaching, personal accountability offerings and health coaching.

We are in business to help the everyday average person that is struggling with health issues, weight gain and needs a clearer understanding of why their body is not responding to diets.

Our goal is to teach simple, practical ways to implement a whole-foods, nutritional ketogenic diet for optimizing weight-loss and health.

This video does a good job explaining what they offer:

You can also check out an (admittedly goofy) Facebook Live video that Melanie and Jimmy did to announce the project. They also have a Facebook page.

So, if you think they would be of help to you on your Keto journey, I recommend you check them out. We’ve interacted quite a bit with Melanie and Julie since KetoCon and my personal take is that they are deeply committed to helping people succeed at Keto. They’ve experienced many of the problems first hand and know how to help. From what they’ve said, the entire impetus for starting this was they wanted to be able to directly help people and previous programs they worked with didn’t allow for that as freely as they would like.

Anecdote time: At Keto Con we had 3 different people who were working at the convention and not doing Keto that really keyed onto Keto Chow (because, frankly, it tastes awesome!): an Austin City police officer doing security detail drank a half dozen “sample” cups for his breakfast, the Director in charge of the presentations and streaming actually bought a week bag after trying it, and a custodian lady tried Keto Chow and had been listening to many of the presentations. The custodian was an exceptionally nice and very humble woman that said her doctor said she absolutely needed to lose weight, after hearing what she did at the conference she said that she wanted to give Keto a try. Melanie and Julie heard that and jumped right in, offering to coach her for a severely reduced rate due to her financial circumstances. The Keto Clarity Academy team appears to sincerely care about helping people change their lives.

Mocha Back In Stock

Just wanted to let you know, we have Mocha back in stock now. The bags say 2.0.1 but they were made with the new protein powder that uses Sunflower Lecithin instead of Soy Lecithin, which technically makes them version 2.0.2. It’s a really small change and only really important to people who get anxious about anything having anything Soy in it.

Flavor of the Week September 11-September 17: 10% off sale on Strawberry 2.0.1 week packs

For the next week, you can get 10% off the 21 meal “week” size of Strawberry 2.0.1. Check out the reviews of 2.0 Strawberry!

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

This is great! When the instructions say to “stick it in the fridge for 30 minutes, but over night is preferred”, read and heed! First time, I tried 30 minutes and it was ok but I was left with that nasty artificial sweetener after taste that we all know and hate. Every time after that I’ve left it in the fridge for AT LEAST 4 hours and it’s been nothing but great since then. Highly recommended.

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:

Quick shipping, great customer service in updating me where my shipment was. Happy with my keto chow; easy to mix up the night before for a grab and go breakfast shake. Would definitely purchase again.

Dave Feldman – Cholesterol research reality check

This entry is part 185 of 185 in the series Ketogenic Soylent

In case you aren’t familiar with Dave Feldman, you may want to check out:

At KetoCon he unveiled the results of his new experiment. He hasn’t done the full-write up on the experiment and results yet, though if you purchased the KetoCon presentation video download, they just posted all of the presentation videos late last night and you can watch the presentation. I’m not going to spoil Dave’s big reveal so you may have to wait for him to do an update.

So what does all this have to do with Keto Chow? Way back in October 2015, Dave ordered a week’s worth of Keto Chow. In April 2017 he tried doing an experiment using keto meal replacement shakes to reduce variables and picked Ketolent instead of Keto Chow but said he would try Keto Chow later, which he did (Dave actually got the very first shipment of Chocolate 2.0)  I made sure that there was absolutely no expectation of favoritism or quid-pro-quo – more than that I saw it as an excellent opportunity to get some detailed feedback on how Keto Chow affected insulin levels. Dave reported back that he didn’t see a spike in insulin in his preliminary testing, SCORE! We got to meet up with Dave at KetoFest and talk about his experiments, which is always fun.

In Dave’s Keto Con presentation he thanked PTS Diagnostics, Ketolent, and Keto Chow for helping out with his experiment:

And on his experiment diary slide, well you can see what he was eating:

Straight up ketogenic meal replacement shakes. It allowed him to hit exactly 3000 calories a day including the days that he was adding in the “mystery ingredient” he used to drive down his cholesterol – it was still 3000 calories a day just with a different macronutrient mix. It’s pretty cool to be helping out with some really cool science and making Dave’s experiments easier and more accurate!

Peanut Butter samples out of stock, temp change to sample bundle, Mocha availability update

This entry is part 184 of 185 in the series Ketogenic Soylent

Here’s a quick update on product availability. We are currently out of stock on the Chocolate Peanut Butter samples. Because of this, we just pulled Chocolate Peanut Butter from the “Sample all the Things” bundle – it’s either take out PB or not have the sample bundle at all until we get the Peanut Butter samples sometime in October. So we took it out. The price has been lowered accordingly.

Mocha week bags are going into production either today or tomorrow with delivery to us sometime early next week. We should be getting some Mocha on Monday anyway when the stuff we took to Keto Con gets back to us (there’s a dozen or so Mocha in that).

Speaking of Mocha…. I’m not a coffee drinker but if you are, you should really check out Tokelau coffee. it’s essentially “Bulletproof” coffee in a K-cup, complete with MCT oil and everything!

Keto Chow at KetoCon 2017

This entry is part 183 of 185 in the series Ketogenic Soylent

I’ve attended, and even worked, booths at a fairly large number of trade show/conferences. This marks the first one I’ve ever PAID for. We really had a lot of fun, met some awesome people, and raised awareness of Keto Chow. Because of the number of photos, I’m going to point you over to this Google Photos gallery. All 4 of us at the conference were able to pop our photos into a shared pool, worked really well to gather them all up =)

Looks like next year Keto Con will be August 24-26, 2018. I’m guessing we’ll be there!

Update on Update on Base Powder Availability

Earlier today I posted that it’s going to be a while before we have the printed packaging for Base Powder, then I talked about trying to get an interim solution (brown bags with thermal printed labels, kinda like the image above^) and that we might have them in a few days.

Just Kidding! Surprisingly the packaging facility pulled off an amazing feat and got us 164 of the base powder TODAY as in: it’s already in stock and available right now. Booyeah.

Update on Base Powder availability

Update: surprisingly the packaging facility pulled off an amazing feat and got us 164 of the base powder TODAY as in: it’s already in stock and available right now.

We got a nasty surprise last week: we were getting quite low on Base Powder so we asked the packaging facility how long it would be before they had the rest of the Base Powder pouches we ordered a few months ago. Blink, blink, blink. We then found out that they didn’t have any more of the bags or labels for the bags.

Crap

A few days prior I had asked the place doing our bag printing for a quote on doing full printed bags for the Base Powder, I got the quote for those right about the same time I received the bad news. So the decision was to either try to get labels printed and buy stock bags… or get bags printed. The cost was about the same so we decided getting the printed bags was the direction we planned to go anyway – So we put in an order with the bag printing place and waited for info on when it would be ready.

This morning I got the confirmation and estimated ship date, I’m hoping in a few hours I’ll get the layout proof to approve so they can start production. Anyhow, the estimated ship date for the printed bags is:

September 18, 2017 – should be easy to remember, that’s Fiestas Patrias and the day before International Talk Like a Pirate Day. After printing it’ll take a few days to arrive at our warehouse, get over to our packaging facility and start production. The most probable date we will have Base Powder available is going to be sometime right around the end of September or very beginning of October 2017. So, sorry for the bad news and the delay =(

Now to give you some hope: we’re working on a potential stop-gap solution. We have some of the old bags (as seen in the image above) we used to package the Base Powder in (shout out to the Sav-On Bags team!), we’re currently labeling an interim batch of these and we’re planning on taking them down to the packaging facility later this afternoon. Once there we’ll have to contend with scheduling – I’m unsure if it will take just a few days or if it will take a week or longer for them to get it going but, it’s going to be faster than a MONTH. Either way, we should easily have the interim packages relatively soon. As soon as I get a solid estimate of production date I’ll update this page.

Flavor of the Week August 28-September 3: 10% off sale on Salted Caramel 2.0.1 week packs

It was only a few weeks ago that we didn’t even have Salted Caramel in stock, now it’s available and on sale. For the next week, you can get 10% off the 21 meal “week” size of Salted Caramel 2.0.1. Check out the flavor reviews of 2.0 Salted Caramel!

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

Easy to mix with a blender bottle. I love that I don’t need to worry about nutrition or supplements when I use Keto Chow. I feel much better about the Keto diet while using this to supplement one meal a day. Although, it tastes so good I could use it for all meals. But, I like to eat and it is partially a social thing.

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:

My bag of Keto Chow powder came very quickly; the website was easy to use and navigate. I found the video helpful and informative. I am looking forward to see how Keto Chow works for me. I mixed up my first bottle tonight after work; will enjoy it tomorrow morning for breakfast. I did sneak a small taste before bed-delicious.

Keto Chow at the “Zombie ApocEclipse”

This entry is part 181 of 185 in the series Ketogenic Soylent

Yesterday we packed up enough food (Keto Chow =), water, cash, fuel, and portable toilets to last for at least a day and drove to Idaho to watch the Eclipse. To start: yeah, it was totally worth it. If you’re around in 2024 or 2045, do not miss the next one!

We left at 02:19 and arrived at our destination just before 6 AM in Terreton, Idaho. We had originally planned to go to the exact center-line of the path of totality in the middle of nowhere but after talking with my dad, who was doing a photography workshop for the eclipse in Wyoming, we decided to use his “backup location” and try for either the High School (which was blocked off), or a church (which wasn’t blocked off, had a nice lawn to sit on, was free, AND had a bathroom we were able to use) – so we went to the church =).

The orange in the map above is when we were driving faster than 70 miles per hour (112 kph) – which actually made up the majority of the trip. In all we drove 666 miles over 11 hours and 33 minutes. If we had tried to go home through Idaho Falls it probably would have taken just as long (or longer) – and we got to see Craters of the Moon National Monument as well.

Anyhow, how does Keto Chow fit into this? I brought along 8 meals of Keto Chow in a cooler, enough to last myself and my wife for 4 meals each. We ended up having two each. They were easy to pack and I didn’t have any worry at all about finding keto friendly food. Salted Caramel was quite tasty after a morning spent waiting for the eclipse!

This is the shortened version of the 360 video I recorded yesterday – only 4 minutes long. Covers about a minute before totality, totality and just after.
