2018 year in review, National Keto Day discount

In case you were unaware, January 5 is “National Keto Day.” Sure it’s a bit contrived and all but whatever! In celebration of National Keto Day, here’s a coupon for 5% off any single order: KetoDay2019 (only works once per person and expires tomorrow night, January 6 – midnight central time I think). Go eat some bacon and avocados today… unless you’re doing like I am and only eating Keto Chow for the next 96 days =)

2018 was an interesting year for all of us at Keto Chow.

More stuff happened, this is what I easily found by looking through my blog posts! I’m suspecting that 2019 will be just as exciting.

Coming Keto Conferences (and Festivals!)

We’ll be going to a variety of Keto centric conventions, conferences, festivals, and such this coming year. To start it off, today only (April 20) you can get $100 off a conference pass to KetoCon in Austin Texas (June 15-17, 2018). You need to use the coupon code 3DAY100 when buying a 3 day pass:

OK, so That’s KetoCon in June, just like last year Keto Chow will be there as a vendor. A month before that (May 20), Miriam will be on the Low Carb Cruise.

In late July we’ll be at KetoFest – we went last year and it was a blast, this year we were invited to be vendors so we will be kicking sampling Keto Chow 2.1. A few weeks later is Low Carb USA San Diego – this one we’ll just be attending for fun.

Next year we will be doing FitCon here in Utah again. It was really nice to do this show since it was local to us, we just drove down the freeway to the other side of town!

People ask us if the shows are successful. That depends on the metric you’re looking at. Do we sell enough product to break even? Haven’t ever once. Do we get to meet a lot of cool people, make new friends, and “network”? Yes – and that’s my criteria for success. We met doctors using keto to treat their patients, professional rugby players that use a ketogenic diet, MMA trainers that have all their students doing keto. We got to hang out (and have dinner with) the Keto Kookie, Keto Mojo, Heads-up-Health, and Ketolent crews. It was pretty awesome and this was just a fitness expo – dedicated keto events are usually even better.

Dave Feldman – Cholesterol research reality check

This entry is part 186 of 209 in the series Ketogenic Diet

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 185 of 209 in the series Ketogenic Diet

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 184 of 209 in the series Ketogenic Diet

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!

Keto Chow at KetoCon (September 1-3, 2017)

Keto Chow will be at KetoCon coming up September 1-3, 2017 in Austin, Texas. We’ll have a booth and everything – planning on having samples to taste. I’ll have the booth number later, but you’ll be able to come by and talk to Chris and Miriam in person! Remember that fist bumps are less likely to communicate disease compared to hand shakes =)

Here’s a list of the people who will be talking at KetoCon, and here’s the announcement video from the crowdfunding campaign that was originally used to launch it:

https://vimeo.com/176885616

and the KetoVangelist podcast where it was announced. So hey, if you were thinking about going to KetoCon, be sure to stop by and say “Hi”. If you didn’t know about KetoCon: surprise!

We’re also going to be at KetoFest in July but just as regular Keto people, not vendors.
