Twenty elite ultra-marathoners and ironman distance triathletes performed a maximal graded exercise test and a 180 min submaximal run at 64% VO2max on a treadmill to determine metabolic responses. One group habitually consumed a traditional high-carbohydrate (HC: n = 10, %carbohydrate:protein:fat = 59:14:25) diet, and the other a low-carbohydrate (LC; n = 10, 10:19:70) diet for an average of 20 months (range 9 to 36 months).
Ketorolac is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) chemically related to indomethacin and tolmetin. Ketorolac tromethamine is a racemic mixture of [-]S- and [+]R-enantiomeric forms, with the S-form having analgesic activity. Its antiinflammatory effects are believed to be due to inhibition of both cylooxygenase-1 (COX-1) and cylooxygenase-2 (COX-2) which leads to the inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis leading to decreased formation of precursors of prostaglandins and thromboxanes from arachidonic acid. The resultant reduction in prostaglandin synthesis and activity may be at least partially responsible for many of the adverse, as well as the therapeutic, effects of these medications. Analgesia is probably produced via a peripheral action in which blockade of pain impulse generation results from decreased prostaglandin activity. However, inhibition of the synthesis or actions of other substances that sensitize pain receptors to mechanical or chemical stimulation may also contribute to the analgesic effect. In terms of the ophthalmic applications of ketorolac - ocular administration of ketorolac reduces prostaglandin E2 levels in aqueous humor, secondary to inhibition of prostaglandin biosynthesis.
Early studies reported high success rates; in one study in 1925, 60% of patients became seizure-free, and another 35% of patients had a 50% reduction in seizure frequency. These studies generally examined a cohort of patients recently treated by the physician (a retrospective study) and selected patients who had successfully maintained the dietary restrictions. However, these studies are difficult to compare to modern trials. One reason is that these older trials suffered from selection bias, as they excluded patients who were unable to start or maintain the diet and thereby selected from patients who would generate better results. In an attempt to control for this bias, modern study design prefers a prospective cohort (the patients in the study are chosen before therapy begins) in which the results are presented for all patients regardless of whether they started or completed the treatment (known as intent-to-treat analysis).
You should not use ketorolac if you have any active or recent bleeding (including bleeding inside your body), a head injury, a stomach ulcer, severe kidney disease, a bleeding or blood-clotting disorder, a history of severe allergic reaction to aspirin or an NSAID, if you are scheduled to have surgery, if you are in late pregnancy, or if you are breast-feeding a baby.
I hadn’t tried the bulletproof coffee with Almond milk but it’s GREAT. I don’t use quite as much of the Almond milk, maybe 1/4 cup but it sure adds flavour to the coffee, which was already great. I like the less butter and MCT oil idea as I have gall stones and can’t always handle the 1 Tbsp of each but the 1 tsp. makes it perfect without the risk of a gall bladder attack. Thank you so much for all the tips and recipes you send.
In a counter mixer (i cant afford a bukket i got a 9 dollar walmart one) add 1 egg, 2oz cream cheese, 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream, dash salt, dash vanilla, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and 1 scoop protein powder and blend. I mix mine up with Quest peanut butter powder and add cocoa powder. Or I do 1/4 cup no sugar added canned apples and cinnamon and pecans and then mix with quest salted caramel protein powder. Quest is sweet enough I never add sweetener but depends on your powder you use. Best pancakes ever cooked in butter. Eat with bacon and you will never miss regular pancakes!
I am a reluctant cook and baker however since switching over to Keto woe I have been baking a lot more. I made these today and they taste incredible. So yummy. I often make substitutions and hope for the best. I did substitute a few things here and they still turned out great. I can’t eat anything with sugar alcohol so finding a great sugar substitute was a challenge. I have been using Kakato sugar substitute and it worked great. For the filling I only used 1/2 cup instead of 3/4. I also did not have lemon zest or fresh lemons. I used non-GAO lemon juice—8 tablespoons and it tastes fantastic. For those that asked about type of butter….I always use Kerrygold or another grass-fed butter. I also baked the crust for 5 extra minutes since it was still so wet. I also baked the entire dish for 5 extra minutes. The crust was awesome due to the buttery crunch with the extra baking. I hope this helps other novice bakers out there.
Similar to the BHB salts and MCT’s from the KETO//OS I discuss above, powdered forms of ketones are excellent if you don’t want to completely eliminate carbohydrates or protein (which can be gluconeogenic when eaten in excess) or eat copious amounts of fats, but want to simultaneously maintain high levels of blood ketones. It may also be used to ease the transition into a ketogenic state, because it can help alleviate the fatigue and lethargy some people experience while making the transition from a glucose metabolism (carb burning mode) to ketone metabolism (fat burning mode).
Do these taste “eggy”? I find that most keto bread-type items just taste eggy. They look like the real deal, so I will give them a try but thought I’d ask before wasting ingredients Also, I am not crazy about coconut flour (I think it’s the texture.) Is it noticeable in this recipe, or does it just improve the overall texture? Thank you! And…how would you compare these keto pancakes to the cream cheese/egg variety?
Use this medication on the skin only. Clean and thoroughly dry the area to be treated. Apply this medication to the affected skin, usually once or twice a day or as directed by your doctor. Dosage and length of treatment depends on the type of infection being treated. Do not apply this more often than prescribed. Your condition will not clear faster, but side effects may be increased.
Prior to your response, I did make a cheesecake, using your recipe for the filling (so delish, and I received all favorable comments on it). Due to the cost difference between almond and coconut flour, I did find a recipe similar to the one you shared in your response, 1/2 C melted butter (1 stick) whisked until fully blended with 2 eggs, 1/4 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Then slowly mix in 3/4 C sifted coconut flour. Kneaded for about a minute, adding coconut flour until not sticky. I simply then pressed crust into only the bottom portion of the springform pan, used a fork to punch multiple holes in it, then baked at 400° for 10 minutes. I let it fully cool before adding filling, then used your perfect instructions to bake the cheesecake. Love, love, love this recipe. I’m a happy Type-II Diabetic!

Yes, you are entirely free to disagree with me. But I have a passion for all things cheesecake and I am ever so grateful that cheesecake is easy to make sugar free and grain free. When I first embarked on a low carb diet, cheesecake was among the first keto dessert recipes I ever tried to make and it was as good as any conventional version out there.
Very new to this low carb thing and have loved your site for ideas–thank you for all of your hard work! I made these pancakes this morning adding a little bit of lemon juice and vanilla and served with butter and a little bit of sugar free all natural raspberry jelly and fresh berries. They were delicious! They seemed very fragile though so I’m not sure how they would work as a wrap for sandwich fixings.
Hi Paola, just wanted to say OMG thank you so very much for this no eggy bread recipe! It’s the best! Had to stop myself from eating the whole lot lol lucky it’s filling . Gave my partner a slice who is so sceptical , it was a hit! He keep saying you sure you didn’t put flour in it? I followed your recipe to a “T” wanting it to be a winner ( except the ginger ( didn’t have any). It rose to perfection! I was so worried that it would flop after taking it out of the oven….. nope kept it’s shape. The taste is exceptional, no eggy after taste , not slimy ….. yeasty perfection! A real winner! Thank you again I love your recipes ….. big hugs from Australia!
Hey Libby, I just want to thank you for your amazing recipes… The best one of all would be the one minute keto mug bread, which I used as like the toasted base for like a ketofied eggs Benedict and honestly… I felt like I was eating at a restaurant!! And I also tweaked your recent cupcake recipe to include cocoa powder and I was amazed at how I actually felt satisfied after just one or two at the end of a meal and I happen to have a bottomless pit for a stomach, so that is nothing short of a miracle😂
I’m new but can’t wait to use these amazing recipes. Can I use these gram cracker cookies to make a cruse for a baked cheese cake and if so would I just use melted butter like the regular crust calls for.? It is really hard to go through every recipe to go through each ingredient to change from metric to us measurements. Please put something more user friendly for us because I want to make all your recipes. It is hard enough following a new recipe let alone looking up each item.
I topped mine with sugar free raspberry preserves and sugar free syrup. I use Walton Farms for the syrup and Smuckers (I think) for the preserves. I also experimented on one pancake with some sugar free mini-chocolate chips. Everything about this recipe is a win and they cooked perfectly for me with a pre-heated skillet and letting the batter rest.
Thanks for the prompt reply! I’ve successfully conquered day two and looking forward to seeing if the keto stix work in my favor on. Monday. I lost a fair amount doing ideal protein but the thought of going back to powdered foods is completely unappealing. I’m so happy to have a plan in place! We had the buffalo wings tonight and oh my gosh (!!!) they were delicious!! My husband wants me to make them again. The recipe couldn’t be more simple. Thank you for sharing your wonderful knowledge and amazing recipes!!!
I followed the recipe to a tee, used all recommended ingredients. I’ve attempted making it twice, the first time I didn’t have a food processor and that was a complete fail. The second time, today, I bought a food processor and attempted it again. The egg whites were fluffy but never got to stiff peaks… maybe my eggs were too cold? Anyway, I baked for 30 mins, and it wasn’t even golden brown on the top so I didn’t put the foil on time and cooked it another 20 mins. I just pulled it out about 20 mins ago and it is golden brown. However, it is a very moist almost like a banana bread texture. I just popped it back in the oven hoping it will “dry up”. Any recommendations? Do I need to cook for and hour ?
I would do breath ketone measurements. That's exactly what I do and this is what I use :https://greenfieldfitnesssystems.com/product/ketonix-breath-ketone-monitor/
Ketorolac is a potent nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID) that produces analgesia similar to an opioid μ-agonist such as morphine or oxymorphone for some types of pain. Ketorolac is available in oral and parenteral formulations. The mechanism of action is similar to other NSAIDs (see Chapter 10), and ketorolac should be used with caution because there may be a high incidence of side effects.

Diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA) results from dehydration during a state of relative insulin deficiency, associated with high blood levels of sugar level and organic acids called ketones. Diabetic ketoacidosis is associated with significant disturbances of the body's chemistry, which resolve with proper therapy. Diabetic ketoacidosis usually occurs in people with type 1 (juvenile) diabetes mellitus (T1DM), but diabetic ketoacidosis can develop in any person with diabetes. Since type 1 diabetes typically starts before age 25 years, diabetic ketoacidosis is most common in this age group, but it may occur at any age. Males and females are equally affected.
The thick base allows you to add in the flavors of your choosing without thinning things out too much. In this case, strawberries have a high moisture content and if I stirred them straight into the whipped cream, it would become a watery mess. You wouldn’t have to worry about chocolate, as that tends to thicken things more, but coffee and other fruits really need to be added to the thick base for the best consistency.
5th century BC is when the first sweet ice cream-like dessert was made. The ancient Greeks would line up at Athen’s street market to buy this sweet ice cream-like treat that consisted of snow, honey, and fruit. Even Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine, encouraged his patients to eat this brand new ice-y food “as it livens the life-juices and increases the well-being.”
The present study shows the beneficial effects of a long-term ketogenic diet. It significantly reduced the body weight and body mass index of the patients. Furthermore, it decreased the level of triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and blood glucose, and increased the level of HDL cholesterol. Administering a ketogenic diet for a relatively longer period of time did not produce any significant side effects in the patients. Therefore, the present study confirms that it is safe to use a ketogenic diet for a longer period of time than previously demonstrated.
To cut the eggy taste in low carb bread I was told by someone to BEAT eggs & milk together, & it worked wonderfully…..BUT since there isn’t any milk called for in this recipe you can’t do that. So, I’m wondering if it would work to use 2 eggs, instead of 3, & then add about 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream to beat the eggs in before adding the other ingredients? The moisture content should be about the same, & the HWCwould be thicker than using water or milk. Might be worth a try.
Our chocolate and vanilla KetoMeal™ shakes are surprisingly delicious with coffee. Most people mix them with water or almond milk but coffee is probably the third most popular option. Our KetoMeal™ shakes are anchored with MCT oil powder so they can boost your ketones and enhance weight loss when consumed in place of breakfast as part of our KETO 30 Program.
I tried the keto diet a couple years ago and about 6 weeks in of following it closely I started having significant episodes of lightheadedness and anxiety like symptoms. The coach I was working with said it was keto flu so I continued on the diet for a couple more weeks but it was making life difficult so I stopped. Now every time I try to go low carb the symptoms come back. Sometimes I wonder if it’s just anxiety response or all in my head. I would love to eat low carb but haven’t ever been able to figure out why this happens. I read somewhere that keto can be harder for women’s bodies and affect their adrenal glands. Would this increase anxiety symptoms.
Yes! Originally I thought I misread the directions. I also feel 1/4 cup is too much. I talked to some friends and they were surprised about the amount. I made this two nights ago. My daughter wouldn’t eat it and I added sour cream to calm it down. I took it to work hoping others will enjoy it. I’m sure if I drastically cut back on the chili powder next time, it will be perfect!
High doses of ketoconazole are sometimes used to treat Cushing syndrome (a condition that occurs when there is too much corticosteroid hormone in the body) and advanced prostate cancer (cancer of a male reproductive gland). Ketoconazole has not been shown to be safe or effective for these uses. Talk to your doctor about using ketoconazole for your condition.
Hi Ben great science & sound advice. May I share with the group? I’m 42, in australia, have been an alcoholic for 10 yrs. In April 2016 I gave up drinking & started living strictly ketogenic. In 3 months I dropped 25 kilos. I have cheated on weekends but I go through a fast of sorts on Mondays to get back into ketosis by Tues. I work afternoon / evenings so I wake at 10.30am take a pre workout drink with raspberry ketones & a splash of mct oil & all my vitamins as well. I then do weights for an hr then get ready to go to work. I take 2 800ml protein shakes consisting of 20 ml mct & 30grm amino enhanced protein. I work in warehousing so I walk anywhere between 10 km & 5 km a nite. I feel great all the time, thanks largely to your research & advice. If have any thoughts or opinions I’d love hear them.
By cutting carb intake significantly, we can drastically reduce insulin resistance, the precursor to type 2 diabetes. In addition, low carb diets, along with exercise, can be very effective at helping alleviate the symptoms and progression of type 2 diabetes. Beyond that, ketosis itself is appetite-suppressing, meaning your hunger will naturally check itself, increasing your caloric deficit and making you lose fat even faster.
Swanson, a professor of neurology who has researched the impacts of ketogenic diets on inflammation in the brain, got curious about the ketogenic diet when trying to treat the inflammation that persists for days after a person suffers a stroke. When he tried inducing a ketogenic state in mice with stroke injuries, he said, “I was overwhelmed by the effect.” Blocking glucose metabolism worked to suppress inflammatory genes, which in turn helped stroke healing.
A simple standby, but one that ketoers adore. 2 or 3 fried eggs and some bacon might not sound like much, but it’s full of protein that will keep you full and energized all morning. Take the opportunity on the weekend to lay your bacon strips on a single cookie sheet and bake in the oven for 20 minutes at 400 degrees. The result is the best bacon you’ve ever had, in a big batch, with no sitting over a popping, hissing frying pan.
I am SO very thankful that I found your post because it answered so many questions, especially the whole uterus part. I was a little freaked! lol … I am new to Keto and I must say that I have been a little frustrated because I started this new keto lifestyle since the second week of February and I’ve been loosing and gaining the same freakin 5 lbs! I now realize that I have been overthinking the whole change and overwhelming myself. Thank you for all the great information and meal plans :)
It depends Laura – if you’re full keto then you’ll want that fat to offset the protein, but if you’re not on a ketogenic diet then you can remove some of it to keep the calories down. It also depends on how lean the meat is that you start with – I usually use 80/20 which provides some fat but it’s not completely swimming in it like it would be if you used 73/27. If you start with a 90/10 you won’t have to drain it at all. Hope that helps! :)
This is the best keto bread I have ever made! By far! My bread was a little flat, but I think my baking powder needs to be replaced. I did make two substitutions with this recipe. I replaced egg whites with whole eggs, and ghee with coconut oil. Everything else, I already had on hand. I will definitely make this again and play with it a little. Really delicious bread.
I started drinking coffee blended with butter and coconut oil for breakfast over a year ago. I loved it. Then about six months ago, I decided I wanted to go even healthier and started making it with match green tea instead of the coffee. I have a slightly sluggish thyroid and thought maybe less caffeine would be beneficial with that. My question is, what type of blender do people use for this? I have gone thru two Nutribullets and recently bought a Ninja blender. In reading the directions for the Ninja, it says in several places not to use hot liquids. In hindsight, I think that is probably why I went thru two Nutribullets in less than a year. Now I am using an immersion blender, but it doesn’t make it very frothy, plus it is messier. Any suggestions? For me, one of the joys of my morning beverage is the hotter the better, so I don’t want to let it cool before blending. Thanks.
Thank you so much for this recipe. I am a huge cheesecake lover but, like you, hate to bake one and have that temptation in my kitchen.So I baked it yesterday and followed the baking instructions, not a good result. Two minutes in my microwave produced a very over-cooked, dried out product. Today I tried it again, on 50% power, for about 80 seconds. Perfect! This will be a keeper! Thank you!
Meanwhile, beat the remaining 1 cup (236 mL) of heavy cream using a hand mixer with a whisk attachment on High for about 2-3 minutes, until stiff peaks form. It's ready when you see a pronounced trail from the whisk on the surface of the cream, and the mixture doesn't pour out when you tilt the bowl. Do NOT overmix, you want barely stiff peaks but not extremely stiff.
good advice and good information :) (i do use the real whipped cream in a can though on the occasion that im too lazy to whip my own… usually when i make coffee with lots of coconut oil and dont feel like whipping, the foamy cream on top keeps the oil slick from feeling too gnarly lol. But the important thing is being aware and factoring it in! So good job on keeping it real so no one wonders what happened after their fourth giant frappe with whipped cream ;)
One of the foods that people tell us they miss most after going keto is bread. (And cookies or cakes, but you get the idea.) We get it, bread is undeniably comfort food. Growing up, it wasn’t unheard of to eat toast for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, and maybe even a slice of buttered bread along with dinner. Not only is that ton of carbs, but it’s also a lot of empty calories when we could have been eating real-food alternatives, like this bread made from nutrient-dense ingredients!
Grass-fed butter contains hundreds of fatty acids and nearly five times more CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) than butter from grain-fed cows. CLA is a naturally occurring fatty acid found in meat and dairy products. It is a known dietary supplement said to help people lose fat, maintain their weight, retain lean muscle mass and control Type 2 diabetes[*].
While ketoconazole is most frequently used for its antifungal properties to treat infections or conditions like seborrheic dermatitis, there is anecdotal evidence indicating that it may also help promote hair growth or reduce hair loss. One small pilot study consisting of 15 people with alopecia, for example, found that ketoconazole may be able to improve hair regrowth.
Oh man, these are hands down the best keto-friendly pancakes I’ve ever had! And I’ve tried at least 5 pancake recipes…the only sub I made was using 1/4 cup Swerve instead of stevia. Only complaint is I’ve never gotten 12 pancakes out of this batter. Always 6. Maybe I make mine way too big 🤷🏽♀️ Anyway, this is a family favorite. Everyone from my 3 year old to my 80 year old grandma LOVES them!
A keto diet has shown to improve triglyceride levels and cholesterol levels most associated with arterial buildup. More specifically low-carb, high-fat diets show a dramatic increase in HDL and decrease in LDL particle concentration compared to low-fat diets.3A study in the long-term effects of a ketogenic diet shows a significant reduction in cholesterol levels, body weight, and blood glucose.

Ketoconazole is used to treat skin infections such as athlete's foot, jock itch, ringworm, and certain kinds of dandruff. This medication is also used to treat a skin condition known as pityriasis (tinea versicolor), a fungal infection that causes a lightening or darkening of the skin of the neck, chest, arms, or legs. Ketoconazole is an azole antifungal that works by preventing the growth of fungus.
acidosis accompanied by an accumulation of ketones in the body, resulting from extensive breakdown of fats because of faulty carbohydrate metabolism. It occurs primarily as a complication of diabetes mellitus and is characterized by a fruity odor of acetone on the breath, mental confusion, dyspnea, nausea, vomiting, dehydration, weight loss, and, if untreated, coma. Emergency treatment includes the administration of insulin and IV fluids and the evaluation and correction of electrolyte imbalance. Nasogastric intubation and bladder catheterization may be required if the patient is comatose. Before discharge of the patient from the hospital, the nurse carefully reviews the meal plan, activity, blood glucose and urine ketone monitoring, and insulin schedule prescribed, emphasizing to the patient that ketoacidosis may be life-threatening and is largely avoidable by strict adherence to the patient's diabetic regimen, monitoring, and appropriate action for illness or stress. See also diabetes mellitus, ketosis. ketoacidotic, adj.
Carbohydrates are like your body’s version of your first love. They provide so much comfort, sweetness, and easy energy that we spend most of our time with them. It feels so right, it feels like true love, but it is mostly lust. The kind of lust that increases our risk of diabetes, heart disease, and obesity. This is why breaking up with carbohydrates is a good idea for many people.
Thanks so much for the reply! One more question about the LivingFuel SuperGreens…I had very bad GI issues with VEGA Protein in 2011 when I tried it (quit after half a container), which scared me away from the vegetarian proteins with greens in them. Is this drastically different from VEGA? Or seeing that pea is the primary source of protein should I look towards something else? Thanks again!
Hello. I am very impressed with your blog and can’t wait to try the cream cheese pancakes. Because of having to watch my carbs, protein and fat levels established from the Keto Calculator that you link to, I plug all of my foods into My Fitness Pal. When I plugged in the cream cheese pancake recipe, I got a different carb count than you have listed. When it’s close I just assume different brands of items but mine was a net 5 carbs. The protein was close at 16 but the fat came out to 23. It’s fairly easy for me to keep the net carb count low but I really have to watch the protein level. Maybe you can share where you go to calculate your numbers??
While many, if not most, recipes are difficult to alter to a ketogenic version, we have found that concocting (and even finding) a legitimate keto-friendly chili to be especially challenging. More often than not, the protein gets a little out of control in its ratio to fat, and the net carbs are also unusually high in most chili recipes. However, we have devised one that fits into (or very close to) the ideal macronutrient range. This chili is easy enough to prepare for a beginner cook to prepare, and the flavor of the finished product is superb!
It just needed a bit more structure, so for trial number three I split the difference, using half coconut flour and half almond flour. There’s a reason they say the third time’s a charm. This was the perfect blend. The bread was moist but firm enough to hold its shape, and it didn’t taste like coconut. After that, I began experimenting: hazelnut flour worked great, and cheese and scallions added great flavor.
These were delicious but I was disappointed because when I inputted the ingredients and their amount into My Fitness Pal app and created the recipe it said each cookie (I made 20 out of the exact recipe) was 10g Carbs. I followed the recipe and only swapped Swerve Granular and used a whole egg. But that’s not enough to adjust a carb count by 7g per cookie. So I’m confused. I used 3 cups unblanched almond flour and that’s where the majority of carbs are in this recipe. Any insight would be appreciated!
Ketorolac is used during eye surgery to maintain mydriasis, or the 'relaxing' of the iris muscles that will allow surgeons to perform cataract surgery. Ketorolac is effective in treating ocular itching. The ketorolac ophthalmic formulation is associated with a decreased development of macular edema after cataract surgery and is more effective alone rather than as an opioid/ketorolac combination treatment. Ketorolac has also been used to manage pain from corneal abrasions.
These savory fat bombs are super rich, decadent, and velvety in the mouth. They’re extremely easy to eat and they’re just plain delicious. Plus, they make for really cute appetizers if you’re serving them to multiple people. Stick a slice of pepperoni underneath, top with a leaf of basil, stick a tooth pick through, and throw a slice of olive on top.
In addition to adding in precious electrolytes such as potassium, magnesium, sodium, chloride, and calcium for supporting nerve impulses and muscle contraction, the Gaspari Nutrition R&D Team have also build their Osm Technology into this product. This “new way” of looking at carbohydrate drinks utilizes a proprietary method of tuning the electrolytes in solution with pure cyclic dextrin to get an optimal osmolality (mOsm). In a nutshell, this results in lower osmolality, and lower osmolality results in faster gastric clearance, and a clean, easy burn of your fuel.
This is a distinct pathologic state that happens when insulin levels are extremely low, such as in a person with type 1 diabetes who cannot produce insulin. It is often called diabetic ketoacidosis or DKA. In this case ketone production redlines, resulting in dangerously high ketone concentrations that can exceed 20 mmol/L, an order of magnitude higher than typical values in nutritional ketosis. Except for type 1 diabetes or other conditions associated with insulin insufficiency (e.g., people with advanced type-2 diabetes who have lost most or all of their capacity for insulin production), a well-formulated ketogenic diet is associated with a built-in safety mechanism thanks to negative feedback inhibition that prevents ketones from exceeding 5 mmol/L (Taggart, 2005).
Eggs are one of the easiest keto breakfast foods. They’re quick to prepare, have well-portioned macronutrients, and you can easily add fat to them to help keep you full. I tend to eat fried eggs nearly every day, but sometimes I want something a bit more flavorful on my plate.Chorizo is a well-seasoned pork sausage that is much looser than traditional sausage. It’s packed with smoky and spicy flavor that goes well with a variety of food. One of the best things about it is it takes less ...
Miss Mellissa…. I was doing *so well* with keto eating last summer and dropped some weight, but all the old (bad, bad) habits started sneaking in and I’m in one heck of a pickle. Just wanted to say “thanks” for this jump-start… Hopefully this will help me remember what I’m SUPPOSED to be doing. Got a long slog ahead of me, but I have hope I can make it. Your site is so, so helpful, and I really appreciate all you do. Thank you.
What does it mean to be on a ketogenic (often shortened to “keto”) diet? When you’re on a keto diet, you consume a very low-carb, high-fat diet. The idea behind this way of eating and why it can work so well is that when the body gets such small amounts of glucose from carbohydrates, it can burn another fuel source — fat — for energy. This is why the keto diet is known for helping the body to burn fat impressively fast! What if you’re not trying to lower the number on your scale? The keto diet still may appeal to you since by limiting sugars and processed grains, you may lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, a disease which is becoming more and more common these days.

The researchers agree that the diet itself isn’t inherently dangerous. But, cautions Weiss, “If you have any medical condition, if you take any medicine at all – there are lots of things that change how medicines work in our bodies, and nutrition is definitely one of them. If you’re making a real change in your nutrition, you really should talk to your doctor.”
Thakn you, Yvette! The MCT oil is there to make the ice cream softer (easier to scoop). I haven’t tried it with coconut oil – it might work, I’m just not sure! If you try it, please let us know how it went and if it still stayed soft. You can also stir several times during the freezing process, which breaks up ice crystals and helps when making ice cream without an ice cream maker.
I don’t buy Swerve in bulk, but in my experience the price for 12-oz bags is always lower at Vitacost than Amazon, and Vitacost offers free shipping with a minimum order. They carry so many keto/LC staples that it’s pretty easy to make the free shipping minimum. I like to get our Lily’s chocolate there too. (Not affiliated with Vitacost at all, just a satisfied repeat customer.)

WOW…these are SO good! I made them and ate some about an hour ago, and I could do it all over again! (That’s because we shared and each only had 2 pancakes) I pureed some strawberries with a touch of agave instead of syrup, and these were to die for. I can’t wait to try a bunch of your other recipes like pizza crust and crackers?! tater tots??! OMG! I’m buying some flax meal & cauliflower ASAP! I’ve been trying so hard to cut down on carbs but I LOVE bread and potatoes! You may very well save my new way of eating…singlehandedly. Thank you SO much! :)
Next, you should know that supplementing with KETO//OS (or following a ketogenic diet) can cause a slightly diuretic, water-losing effect, and can deplete your natural magnesium, potassium and sodium stores. This can be rectified by supplementing with a good electrolyte or increasing the sodium in your diet. This is another reason KETO//OS adds additional sodium to the formulation to counteract this sodium depletion.
These were delicious! I mixed everything up in a small blender (think Nutrabullet) and everything fit. Added a bit of flavored stevia liquid drops, and a dash more cinnamon! Mmm! I did not have the 3” rings, but this recipe produced 4 large pancakes (6” diameter) that still rose nicely – better than many cream cheese pancake recipes I have tried! Not sure if it was due to the baking powder or coconut flour? Any who, I will definitely purchase the rings because I can then use them for eggs! Definitely try this if you’re low carb/Keto and are longing for pancakes!!
Many people take MCT oil and exogenous ketones when they start a Keto diet in order to boost their ketone levels. However, if you’re unused to taking these Keto supplements, then they can cause you to have the runs pretty badly. So make sure to start with a small amount at first (a few grams of ketone salts per day OR 1/2 teaspoon of MCT oil). And then gradually increase your intake as your stomach adjusts to it.
There are studies that have shown sugar has the same effect on our bodies and brains as cocaine and heroine!1 The same areas of the brain are activated when one eats sugar as when one ingests cocaine. In addition, when we eat sugar, our brain sends messages for the release of dopamine, the “feel good” hormone. After some time, the release of dopamine is more or less regulated and less is sent out each time we eat sugar. The absence of large amounts of dopamine triggers our need to want more sugar, to get that same “feel good” feeling back. Coincidentally, drug addiction is exactly that. The brain remembers what made it feel good, even if you don’t- cravings aren’t random.
I made this loaf for the first time today and I’m happy with the result. It does taste a little eggy but when you are craving something that resembles bread this loaf does the trick. I toasted a piece and that was okay to eat as well. The only change I made to the recipe was to NOT use the food processor – just mixed egg yolks, almond flour etc together by hand and folded in the egg whites. I used a loaf pan 25 x 13 cm and was able to cut 15 slices. Intend to make again.
Made this for the first time tonight, excellent! I read the comments before I started so I knew to beat the eggs well and drain the beef. Thank you to everyone who commented! I didn’t use pickles, instead I put a few dots of sweet relish on top of the beef/bacon layer then spread them out a bit. Not so keto friendly but there isn’t much in a portion and it’s much quicker than dealing with pickles. Hubby asked me what I thought of it as he went for seconds. I quite enjoyed this and he did too! I had much more beef than called for, I used all 3 eggs and beat them well before the whipping cream and yellow mustard went in.There was no eggy taste. I will definitely make this again!
In this recipe you get the fat bomb experience but without any effort as you are using only three ingredients. These make great snacks when you need something to keep you going, but you can also use them as an appetizer or as party food. Don’t skip on the lime juice though, because it keeps the avocado from turning brown and gives these bombs a real zing!
I’ve done keto off and one for about the past year and lost about 20 lbs. You may feel a little tired and have some body aches (keto flu) for a few days but after that you’ll feel amazing! I hardly feel hungry once I’m in ketosis, and I often have to remind myself to eat something. If you’re thinking about it, I would recommend doing some research before you jump in. There are ways to reduce symptoms of the keto flu and it’s good to understand the science behind what is happening to your body. I recently convinced my husband to join me and he loves it! He lost 7lbs in two weeks, and wants to keep going. Good luck!

During the 1920s and 1930s, when the only anticonvulsant drugs were the sedative bromides (discovered 1857) and phenobarbital (1912), the ketogenic diet was widely used and studied. This changed in 1938 when H. Houston Merritt, Jr. and Tracy Putnam discovered phenytoin (Dilantin), and the focus of research shifted to discovering new drugs. With the introduction of sodium valproate in the 1970s, drugs were available to neurologists that were effective across a broad range of epileptic syndromes and seizure types. The use of the ketogenic diet, by this time restricted to difficult cases such as Lennox–Gastaut syndrome, declined further.
This cheesecake tastes amazing! I made it for the first time yesterday, and the hardest part was waiting for it to cool. I did modify the recipe slightly; I only used 20 ounces (2 1/2 packs) of cream cheese just because I was mixing them one block at a time and it seemed to be plenty enough for the entire cheesecake at 2 1/2. I then used half of the batter to make the cheesecake in a pie plate and used the other half to make 24 mini crustless cheesecakes. I still used the same amount of sweetener for the filling because I like my cheesecake on the sweeter side. I loved the crust as well. I made a strawberry topping and it tasted very similar to a cheesecake biscuit with jelly. The next time I can get my hands on dairy-free cream cheese, I will make it with that. I will definitely be making this for my next family gathering. Thanks so much for the delicious recipe!
Only issue I had was the springform pan I used leaked some butter into the dutch oven. Perhaps I used a little too much or my almonds weren’t ground finely enough. I may try 6oz of almond flour next time instead. The adults seemed to enjoy it for the most part and it made one little girl happy because every other dessert served that night had gluten and this was something she could eat. 🙂
Can’t handle how good these are. The sweetness from the coconut especially when you cook them with spray coconut oil is awesome doesn’t even need syrup. Some fresh strawberries on top really makes it! If you use low fat sour cream and unsweetened applesauce instead of butter you can get the calorie count down to 40 cal a pancake. That’s o can’t handle how good these are. The sweetness from the coconut especially when you cook them with spray coconut oil is awesome doesn’t even need syrup. Some fresh strawberries on top really makes it! I used low fat sour cream, instead of heavy cream…and 1/8 cup unsweetened applesauce instead of butter it brought the calorie count down to 40 cal a pancake and bigger pancakes too. That about 1 SP per pancake!!!! If you follow WW.
In terms of chemical structure, ketoconazole is an imidazole. The less toxic and generally more effective triazole antifungal agents fluconazole and itraconazole are usually preferred for systemic use. In 2013 the European Medicines Agency's Committee on Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) recommended that a ban be imposed on the use of oral ketoconazole for systemic use in humans throughout the European Union, after concluding that the risk of serious liver injury from systemic ketoconazole outweighs its benefits. The oral formulation of ketoconazole was discontinued in Australia in 2013 and in China in 2015.
The difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis is the level of ketones in the blood. Ketosis is a physiological adaptation to a low carbohydrate environment like fasting or a ketogenic diet. There are situations (such as treatment-resistant epilepsy) where ketosis can be beneficial to health. Ketoacidosis is an acute life-threatening state requiring prompt medical intervention; its most common form is diabetic ketoacidosis where both glucose and ketone levels are significantly elevated.
The Keto diet emphasizes weight loss through fat-burning. The goal is to quickly lose weight and ultimately feel fuller with fewer cravings, while boosting your mood, mental focus and energy. According to Keto proponents, by slashing the carbs you consume and instead filling up on fats, you safely enter a state of ketosis. That’s when the body breaks down both dietary and stored body fat into substances called ketones. Your fat-burning system now relies mainly on fat – instead of sugar – for energy. While similar in some ways to familiar low-carb diets, the Keto diet’s extreme carb restrictions – about 20 net carbs a day or less, depending on the version – and the deliberate shift into ketosis are what set this increasingly popular diet apart.
