  • Is peanut butter keto friendly?

    Is peanut butter keto friendly?

    According to an article in Good Housekeeping 3 registered dieticians say peanut butter is keto friendly. In general, registered dietitian Abigail Rapaport Fay, RDN, says that natural peanut butter is absolutely keto-friendly. This is because they follow the ratio of high fat, moderate protein and low carb (and low sugar). Molly Devine, RDN, a registered dietitian and the author of Essential […]

  • Today show covers the keto diet

    What is ketosis?The body always seeks out glucose (and its stored form, glycogen) for fuel. Limiting carbohydrates mean limiting the body’s favorite fuel — and so it must adapt. The alternative solution is to burn stored fat instead. The metabolic shift from burning glucose to fat produces ketones. Ketones are important because while the body […]

  • Everything you need to know on Keto Breath and what you can do about it.

    Keto Breath is something I’ve never experienced (at least no one has told me that I offend). But I know many people do have problems with it especially when starting down the path of low carb and and the ketogenic diet. There is a product called Smart Mouth that may be able to help (not […]

  • What’s the difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis?

    One could kill you and the other is the ideal metabolic state. That’s the long and short of it. Ketoacidosis, without treatment, can kill you while being in ketosis means that your body will turn to burning fat for fuel versus glucose in your blood.

  • The cult of keto?? Uh oh…

    So now the Keto Diet has reached cult status! Why does everyone have to do this? If people want to eat this way and it’s working for them then leave them alone. While some normal people might use keto judiciously to shed a few pounds fast, it also has a host of weirdly tribal followers. […]

  • What is keto rash?

    Personally, I’ve never experienced keto rash but I empathize with those that contract it. Rashes are never pleasant. The good news is that it supposedly is easily treated. The bad news is one of the treatments is to increase carbohydrates to move out of ketosis. Keto rash is a rare form of dermatitis, or skin […]

  • Tracking ketones and GKI

    As I’ve said before, I’ve been living the Intermittent Fasting and Keto Friendly lifestyle for over 2 decades and fell into this lifestyle quite by accident. It’s only recently that I learned that it’s the latest diet craze (hopefully not a fad). As such, I have never measured my blood sugar or ketone levels (never […]

  • Who has heard of “Keto Crotch”?

    I really don’t have much to say on this. What can I say? We’ve all been there: a not-so-good odor coming from “down there.” And the truth is, vaginal odor can happen for a variety of reasons—from yeast infections to STDs—but lately, reports are coming in from keto dieters that they are experiencing a particularly […]

  • Is this the Keto Diet’s moment? Or will it fade away as just another diet fad?

    My personal experience says that this type of lifestyle works. Limiting carbohydrates and not eating so much will keep your weight stable and keep you in a good position to be as healthy as you can be. Denying yourself, however, is never a good thing. While I do live my life naturally eating fewer carbs […]

  • Are MCT and BHB supplements necessary?

    I’ve never tried any supplements of any kind because I’ve always found them unnecessary… for me. I can understand why some people might want to or might need to take supplements to get the results they want. It’s just never been something I’ve needed to explore. Part of the reason I don’t need them is […]
