Flavor of the Week Nov 12-Nov 18: 10% off sale on Root Beer Float 21 meal packages

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”:

I love Keto Chow. As a cancer patient it provides me with the nutrition and convenience I need. It also taste amazing.

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.

I admit I was kinda skeptical. I’m not one for “fake” flavors, especially banana. But I gotta tell you all of the flavors I have tried have been amazing! It did take me a minute to get the ratios right but once I did Wowza!

Flavor of the Week Nov 5-Nov 11: 10% off sale on Vanilla 2.1 week packs

Let’s try this again, with the right dates this time. For the next week, you can get 10% off the 21 meal “week” size of Vanilla 2.1. Vanilla is a really versatile flavor and lends itself to all kinds of hacking and tomfoolery =) A month ago, in a thread in the KetoChow subreddit We had a bit of awesomeness from MrCharismatist about Vanilla:

What’ll really blow your mind is that all you need is Vanilla and some bottles of Torani sugar free syrup.

Vanilla + Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough syrup is fantastic.

Vanilla + Orange tastes strangely like Froot Loops in a good way.

Vanilla + Red Raspberry is dead on “Red Snow Cone”.

As to Chicken Soup, there’s no need to overthink it and boil water in a kettle to a certain temp. As long as it’s still warm after you put cream or butter in it, it’s fine. My kitchen sink is shockingly hot and I just use it straight.

I’ve got six weeks of chocolate, sevenish of chicken Soup left. When I reorder it’s going to be all Vanilla and Chicken Soup.

To which LavernicaDeLuca replied:

Absolutely agree with the vanilla is all you need. It’s an amazing base for adding flavors. I love adding peanut butter to vanilla, it’s a dream come true for a peanut butter fanatic like me, I just use PB as the oil, it’s amazing. And of course, vanilla is great on its own too. It’s definitely my favorite KC.

There’s also this entire thread just about Vanilla Keto Chow and how versatile it is, give it a read. There’s even more fun, check out the flavor reviews of 2.1 Vanilla!

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

I will admit, my expectations for these shakes regarding flavor want that high. I’ve used lots of shakes pre-keto and most were pretty awful. When I took my first ship of Raspberry Cheesecake this morning I quickly grabbed the package to make sure it was the right thing. It was so good! I can’t wait to tri the other flavors! Plus it kept me satiated for several hours. I’m so glad I found this!

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.

These are SO yummy!!! Like eyes-rolling-back-in-your-head delicious!!! They take all the guess work out of keto meal planning and I LOVE it!!! They are so convenient for a work day and VERY filling!! I will DEFINITELY be ordering more!! Thanks KetoChow!!!

Flavor of the Week Oct 29-Nov 4: 10% off sale on Salted Caramel 2.1 week packs

For the next week, you can get 10% off the 21 meal “week” size of Salted Caramel 2.1. Check out the flavor reviews of 2.1 Salted Caramel!

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

This is the best product on the market for keto!!! This gives me the chocolate i need when i crave something sweet AND gives me everything I need !

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:

When I was researching protein powders and stuff after I decided to start the keto diet I fortunately stumbled across keto Chow. This stuff tastes great unlike a lot of other products and is nutritionally balanced for someone on a keto diet. In addition it’s not just a hundred calorie protein powder but a full meal replacement which is unusual.their custom nutrition calculator makes it super easy for me to meet my macro and caloric goals each day and the product itself taste amazing extremely smooth the longer you let it refrigerate before you drink and reminds me of a rich melted ice cream. I would recommend it to anyone on the keto diet and to anyone in general who’s looking for a great tasting meal replacement.

Comparison of Keto “Meal Replacement” nutrition, costs, net carbs, fat, and more

in 2017, when we went to our first KetoCon in Austin Texas, I noticed that quite a few of the vendors that were going to be there offered “meal replacement” products marketed to the keto eater – so I decided to do a comparison of the available options, mostly for myself so I could speak intelligently about what’s out there but I thought it would be of value to the community at large.

You can view the spreadsheet I’ve put together here. The table is sorted by whether it’s nutritionally complete and then by cost for 2000 calories. I put “meal replacement” in quotes for a reason: many of the mixes do not give you a nutritionally complete meal, rather they are more of a snack – honestly, you’d be better off grabbing some string cheese (you’ll notice I have an entry in the table for string cheese! =). You cannot use any of the non-complete products for more than an occasional “meal”, once a day at the most though you might want to limit consumption to 2-3 times a week.

The ones that are nutritionally complete are designed to give you all your nutrition for any given meal. Meaning you should get all your vitamins, electrolytes, fats, everything. In theory, you could replace a single meal, multiple meals in a day, or even go nuts and replace all of your meals without suffering from nutritional deficiencies. Personally, I like to call them “engineered staple foods”.

Earlier today, we got an email from a guy using Keto Chow that thought it was remarkable the change in how many supplements he no longer takes when using Keto Chow, you can see that at the top of this post. That email got me thinking about a photo someone posted on Facebook showing the difference in nutrition between their old “meal replacement” and Keto Chow using Cron-O-Meter (which I think is the BEST app for tracking a keto diet, period). I thought it would be good to show a similar comparison, I simply loaded up Cron-O-Meter and selected a meal of 8 different “Keto Meal Replacement” options to compare with Keto Chow, here’s what you get:

None aside from Keto Chow even come close to providing 1/3 of your daily vitamins and minerals, and most are extremely low calorie and low fat – like they’re not sure about this whole “keto” thing. I have no problem at all living for weeks or months on Keto Chow alone, I doubt that any of the creators of the other “Meal Replacements” would even attempt such a thing (and for good reason). I believe that if a product isn’t good enough for me, it isn’t good enough to sell to other people either.

Two of the nutritionally complete options require you to buy your own fat source (Keto Chow and Keto Fuel) and that’s included in the cost per meal based on Great Value Heavy Whipping Cream for Keto Chow, Chosen Foods Avocado Oil (also for Keto Chow), and Great Value Olive Oil for Keto Fuel. Your costs may be higher or lower depending on how much you use. Putting in the cost for 2000 calories on these two was weird. If you use 157ml of heavy cream in Keto Chow, it costs $10.86 – use 118ml (for 1600 calories a day) and the cost for 2000 calories goes up to $13.10. The same sort of thing happens with Keto Fuel (which could also use heavy cream instead of olive oil, that’s just what’s in the directions). You could also use your own fat source to amp up the other products to a higher calorie. Anyhow, because of this confounder, I’ve also included a cost per day for how much it would cost to get a full day’s nutrition based on the number of meals per day the manufacturer recommends.

Others using Keto Chow to conduct science!

Siobhan Huggins recently posted about her half of an experiment where she was tracking biomarkers while changing around the amount of fat she was using. We were super happy when she approached us about using Keto Chow for the experiment. I (Chris) have done my own experiments using Keto Chow to tightly control variables, which is difficult to do with nutrition unless you’re using something like Keto Chow – it’s cool to see others using Keto Chow for science as well.

Siobhan was going for 6000 calories a day during parts of the experiment. That’s a REALLY difficult thing to do unless you’re using something like Keto Chow:

I’d say, in this case, the inconvenience of having to drink 6 shakes a day was far outweighed by the data I got in the process. Lipoprotein(a) coming from a baseline diet to a high calorie/high fat phase provided some useful information that – of course – leaves me with even more questions, and possible future experiments in mind, for sure. Plus, it wasn’t too bad, as the very kind staff at the hotel where the conference was taking place offered to store my shakes in the front office fridge so they could stay refrigerated until I needed them. I’m extremely grateful, as this made the whole process much less of a hassle, and allowed it to go as smoothly as it did. The food served at the conference actually did look quite appetizing, but in this case the sacrifices of citizen science won out over the freshly carved meat they were serving.

Even with that said, I must say that my diet over the conference weekend was definitely more appetizing than what Dave was eating – as he expressed multiple times! I’m sure he’ll be mentioning that himself, however, in part 2

Sometimes science is hard =) You can read about the entire experiment and see all the cool graphs and data over on cholesterolcode.com.

Keto Chow Facebook Live from October 23, 2018

We did our weekly Facebook live video last night. I finally figured out how to get the a6000 to record more than 23 minutes at a time so it was WAY easier to edit together, and higher quality:

Or, if you prefer to see all the Facebook comments, here’s that version with the (somewhat) lower quality video
