I made this recipe and it turned out so well! It even looked pretty! Haha This was my first cheesecake I have ever made and wow! I will be making it again. Thank you so much for the recipes, you are helping me stay on track with my keto diet and still enjoy a New York Style Cheesecake! Yum! I topped mine with the Simple Berry Sauce you mentioned in the recipe. I wish I could post the photos! 🙂
Ketorolac tromethamine administered as an IV bolus every 6 hours for 5 days to healthy subjects (n=13), showed no significant difference in Cmax on Day 1 and Day 5. Trough levels averaged 0.29 μg/mL (SD ± 0.13) on Day 1 and 0.55 μg/mL (SD ± 0.23) on Day 6. Steady state was approached after the fourth dose. Accumulation of ketorolac tromethamine has not been studied in special populations (geriatric, pediatric, renal failure or hepatic disease patients).
Reproduction studies have been performed during organogenesis using daily oral doses of ketorolac tromethamine at 3.6 mg/kg (0.37 times the human AUC) in rabbits and at 10 mg/kg (1.0 times the human AUC) in rats. Results of these studies did not reveal evidence of teratogenicity to the fetus. However, animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response.
In the US especially, coconut oil and MCT oil manufacturers are legally allowed to claim that lauric acid is an MCT because chemists named it that way, even though it does not act like other true biological MCT oils. If you are relying on plain coconut oil or “MCT-labeled” oil to get enough useful MCTs, think again and check the label: odds are you’re getting very few of the potent, ketogenic shorter chain MCTs (also known as “C8” and “C10”), and instead getting mostly cheaper but ineffective lauric acid.
Low carb diet enthusiasts also commonly point to the insulin-carbohydrate hypothesis, claiming that cutting carbs will help you store less body fat. This theory is based off the fact that higher carb intake increases insulin secretion, and insulin plays an important role in distributing and storing energy by promoting glucose uptake into your body's cells - including your muscle, liver and fat cells. Because of this, insulin technically promotes fat storage. However, it is more complex than that. Insulin is not the only hormone that promote fat storage and research continues to suggest that fat storage primarily occurs when you eat too many calories, not carbs in particular (3).
Hi Melissa! I’ve been on track for 4 days now and have actually been feeling pretty good except for fatigue. I’ve been follwing the plan to a “T” but after 4 days I don’t think i’m in ketosis yet. Could some people take a few days longer than others? I’m going to test again in a couple days (or how often should you test? Does morning have more ketones than evening?) and hopefully I am up. Sometimes it is hard to read the strips but I know I am negative to minimal ketones at this point.
I am new to keto and the biggest struggle is giving up rice and beans—waaaah I don’t feel like giving up but my Caribbean palate is having a hard time adapting. I love this post as a starting point. It’s been three days so far and I’m already making mistakes. I will make some modifications to the meal suggestions and I just ordered some keto strips. Thank you for this post.
I’m going to try this but freeze half of it in ice cube trays to run it through my dessert bullet. It’d be easy to add frozen fruit with it this way, too. And I’m going to add some plain unsweetened protein powder as well (to kind of replicate Halo Top ice cream). I love HT (vanilla, chocolate, and mint are the best of their flavors, though I add crushed sugar-free chips since there’s barely any in theirs) but the inconsistent weight/fill of their containers is disappointing for the price. Poor quality control. Very excited to try this no churn recipe!!
What is the link between ketones and diabetes? Ketone is a chemical produced by the body when fats are broken down for energy. Ketone testing is important for people with diabetes, because high levels can lead to diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), when acid levels become too high in the blood and the person loses consciousness. Find out when and why to do ketone testing. Read now
Many people choose ketoproof coffee or tea in the morning to ramp up energy with added fats. While it is a great thing, it’s also important to consume flavored beverages in moderation. This is amplified when it comes to caffeine as too much will lead to weight loss stalls; try to limit yourself to a maximum of 2 cups of caffeinated beverages a day.
In addition, carbs are easy to come by in any diet - they tend to be found in the form of sugar and refined grains in just about any processed or junk food option you can think of. They are also found in just about anything that grows out of the ground and many dairy products. And because of this, it's easy to get too many. And when you eat more carbs and calories than your body needs, the remaining are often stored as body fat. By cutting down on your carbs, your body is less likely to store them as fat.
One of the main causes of keto flu is lack of electrolytes.2 Electrolytes are minerals in your body that carry an electric charge. Electrolytes affect the amount of water in your body, the acidity of your blood (pH), your muscle function, and other important processes. An electrolyte deficiency can be caused by a few things, most prevalent of which are your water intake and foods you may not be eating enough of.
I just made this keto bread, and it is amazing! It’s better than most bread I’ve tasted! I made mine with bacon, American cheese, Brie, and Camembert (because I wanted to be extra). If you use bacon, cook it to how you normally like it in a seperate pan, as the bacon doesn’t cook much extra while baking. I think I used a little too much butter, but, oh boy, was it nice and moist!
Ok, no lie, I tried this and it’s amazing! I had a random off day off work during one of Atlanta’s “snow days@ recently. I went to my best friends’ house and made these with her and her mom. The aftertaste of the Stevia/Mungfruit *dp* was very noticeable at first, so we added more cream cheese to dilute it a little. The lemon zest helps a bunch too! And just to note, we added one egg at a time into our KitchenAid mixer. Great recipe!
I made this because we are on a strict low carb diet and it is extremely hard to find satisfying snacks or desserts. OMG this is some good cheesecake!!! I used xylitol and tweaked the recipe just a little, I added a little more vanilla, a pinch of salt to the filling and the crust, I also added a bit of lime juice instead of lemon. We felt guilty after eating it because it just does not taste like a “diet” cheesecake. My only complaint is that it did not set completely solid so it’s a little more soft and creamy than I prefer. I think I need to adjust the temp on my oven so I can cook it longer next time. This will be my go to cheesecake recipe from now on.
I love this recipe! When I started keto, I was worried that there was going to be so many foods that I would no longer be able to eat. Pancakes was one of them. Who doesn’t like getting up on a Saturday or sunday morning and enjoying some hot griddled goodness? Enter this recipe! It was a keto version for pancakes and it’s delicious and satisfied my cravings for pancakes completely. Now it’s a staple in our diet.
Mild ketosis is a natural phenomenon that occurs in humans during fasting and lactation (19,20). Postexercise ketosis is a well-known phenomenon in mammals. Although most of the changes in the physiological parameters induced following exercise revert back to their normal values rapidly, the level of circulating ketone bodies increases for a few hours after muscular activity ceases (21). It has been found that in trained individuals, a low blood ketone level protects against the development of hypoglycemia during prolonged intermittent exercise (22). In addition, ketosis has a significant influence on suppressing hunger. Thus, a ketogenic diet is a good regulator of the body’s calorie intake and mimics the effect of starvation in the body.
I have successfully kept my net carbs below 25 g for most of an 8 day period; some of those days were right at 20g. I felt great... energy in the afternoon when I didn't usually have any. On day 9, however, I am having symptoms of the "flu" - headache, fatigue, mental fog, nausea in the morning... what gives? I thought if I were to have the flu, it would be right away. Is this normal? I am on day 10 right now, and don't plan to give up. I am counting my macro's using MyFitnessPal - eat whole foods and keeping my water and electrolytes up. I guess my main question is, can the flu hit after you've been on this lifestyle of eating after 8 days?
4. Switch up fats. There are no strict recommendations for capping saturated fat intake on a keto diet, so it’s easy to end up hyperfocused on adding coconut oil or butter to everything. Mix it up to get a nice a nice blend of unsaturated and saturated fats, aiming to get less than 10 percent of your total calories from saturated fat, per the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USDA). Drizzle avocado oil (unsaturated fat) to finish off roasted veggies, or add a spoonful of coconut oil (saturated fat) to your smoothie, recommends Glassman. Do the same for meats; eat a small portion of grass-fed rib eye for dinner one night and then organic chicken with extra-virgin olive oil the next.
This way of eating has made me feel better in so many ways. I just had such a craving For the texture of cake or bread last night that I had a piece of cake and a sandwich wrap! I knew I had to find a way to satisfy that craving and considered eating a sandwich once a week. Now I can do it without too many carbs. Thanks for taking the time to make it come out right. No more carb BINGES for me.
All 83 subjects received the ketogenic diet consisting of 20 g to 30 g of carbohydrate in the form of green vegetables and salad, and 80 g to 100 g of protein in the form of meat, fish, fowl, eggs, shellfish and cheese. Polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats were also included in the diet. Twelve weeks later, an additional 20 g of carbohydrate were added to the meal of the patients to total 40 g to 50 g of carbohydrate. Micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) were given to each subject in the form of one capsule per day (Table 2).
Hi Tony, It depends on the brand of stevia. Pure stevia powder would be too concentrated and you’d be missing the bulk of the sweetener since you’d need so much less of pure stevia. If you use a stevia blend that contains another sweetener as a filler, that would work, and the amount depends on the brand. I have a sweetener guide here. For a nut-free flour, you can use ground sunflower seeds, but you’d taste the flavor of them in the cookies.
Intermittent fasting is another way to achieve ketosis. This doesn’t suggest going days without food, but rather intermittent fasting. You can eat for eight hours and then fast for 16 hours, or eat a low-calorie diet for a few days (about 1,200 daily calories if you’re a woman and 1,500 daily calories if you’re a man). As you take in less food, your body uses more of its fat stores for fuel.
Hi Susan, Sometimes the thickness varies depending on the brand of coconut flour, so that could be the difference. The one I use is linked on the recipe card. Otherwise, you can definitely add a little bit more milk or oil if it’s super thick, just not a lot. It’s normal for it to be a little thicker than a typical pancake batter. I’m glad you liked the flavor, though!
The ketosis produced by fasting or limiting carbohydrate intake does not have negative effects for most people once the body has adapted to that state. The ketosis caused by diet has been referred to as dietary ketosis, physiological ketosis, benign dietary ketosis (Atkins), and, most recently, nutritional ketosis (Phinney and Volek), in an attempt to clear up possible confusion with diabetic ketoacidosis.
Before even trying the keto diet, you’ll want to check with your healthcare team to ensure the approach is right for you. It is for some: For instance, previous research has shown the diet to provide anti-seizure benefits to children with epilepsy, although it’s not given to them for weight loss. There's also a growing body of research that suggests the keto diet may be effective in adults with epilepsy, too.
Amoxicillin represents a synthetic improvement upon the original Penicillin molecule. Amoxicillin is better able to resist damage from stomach acid so less of an oral dose is wasted. While it is still susceptible to destruction by Staphylococcal enzymes, it does have a much broader spectrum against the Gram negative cell wall and is able to last a bit longer.
I’ve only one question. I work in shifts and at 4.30 in the morning I can not eat my breakfast (lazy – I manage to get out of bed and into my car in 30 minutes ;-). Not even if I make it the day before…I just can’t swallow the stuff. But I have to eat something because I’m in my car for more than a hour. Can I have a liquid breakfast at those times?
This article really bothers me in that if you do a few incorrect things with this diet, it will actually do more harm than a full carb diet. I have been in ketosis for a month or so but to what detriment? Based on the “ketosis darkside” list you highlighted, i could be doing any or all of these without realising. Could i share with you my meal plans and see if in your opinion they are beneficial and healthy or if im digging myself an early grave?
Her husband Mark Consuelos might be all about the diet (see slide seven), but for the Live with Kelly and Ryan co-host keto is “something I could never do,” she told Bon Appetit. “I just don’t have that level of discipline. Mark says that I’m carb-o, because I always eat his bun if he gets a burger. And the fries. But you know, I work out, so I feel like I’m allowed. I’m 48, I’m entitled, and I’m eating whatever I want to eat.”
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.
We, at Okanagan Rawsome have been fans of our Super (delicious) green Coffee for the past year. freshly brewed organic coffee, freshly made almond milk or organic raw whole milk ( from our neighbours) raw cacao nibs, spinach, kale or cilantro, tumeric, maca, cayenne, and a scoop of coconut oil or butter. At your suggestion we’ve recently added collagen powder. Blend until frothy and than go for a 10 km nordic ski! Don’t worry too much about exact measurements. You will know when you’ve overdone it on the greens or the cayenne!
I ran into this situation too! My daughter went grocery shopping for me, and assuming all heavy creams were the same I used what she got without checking the label. When I put the recipe into MyFitnessPal I was shocked at the high carb count! I learned you definitely need to read labels because heavy cream brands have 16 carbs per half pint (e,g, Essential Everyday) and some have 6 (e.g. Organic Valley). Don’t use the per tablespoon or per ounce nutritional values (as usually indicated on labels) because as someone already posted manufacturers can round down to 0 carbs per serving and that’s really not true. So if you’re tracking like I am and don’t want to kid yourself then look at carbs per half-pint or pint!
Because serious GI tract ulcerations and bleeding can occur without warning symptoms, physicians should monitor for signs or symptoms of GI bleeding. Patients on long-term treatment with NSAIDs, should have their CBC and a chemistry profile checked periodically. If clinical signs and symptoms consistent with liver or renal disease develop, systemic manifestations occur (eg, eosinophilia, rash, etc.) or if abnormal liver tests persist or worsen, TORADOL (ketorolac tromethamine) should be discontinued.
I’ve been on and off of my Keto diet with the primary purpose of losing weight. I’m 30 years old, workout daily – I’m in decent shape but have some extra fat around the mid-section that I’d like to get rid of, I am hoping to lose ~20 pounds of fat. However, the problem is that I am an extremely picky eater with tremendous cravings for some of my favorite carb-heavy foods – I only eat a number of high-fat / low-carb foods that help me attain Ketosis, so cycling through them multiple times a week becomes excruciating. I find myself cheating on my diet every 2 – 3 weeks, which causes a 3 – 5 pound setback that takes me a few days to overcome and get back into ketosis.

Providing adequate pain control with minimal side effects in inpatient and ambulatory settings is a continuous challenge to the PACU nurse. Ketorolac tromethamine (Toradol, Syntex, Palo Alto, CA) is a new parenteral nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) approved for use in the United States. Ketorolac is useful in the management of short term, moderate to severe postoperative pain. It is used by itself or as an adjunct to traditional opioid analgesics. Ketorolac, like other NSAIDs, has analgesic, anti-inflammatory, and antipyretic properties. Unlike morphine or meperidine, ketorolac does not bind to opioid receptors and is not a centrally acting agent. Administered intramuscularly, peak plasma levels are reached in 45 to 50 minutes. It is administered as a 30- or 60-mg intramuscular (IM) loading dose followed by 15- or 30-mg doses IM every 6 hours, with a maximum first-day dose of 150 mg and 120 mg on subsequent days up to a recommended maximum of 5 days. The lower dose range is recommended for elderly patients, patients weighing less than 50 kg, and patients with impaired kidney function. Initial studies show that use of ketorolac decreases the overall amount of opioid analgesia needed for postoperative pain control. To date, reported occurrence of side effects is low. A case study presents a healthy ambulatory surgical patient admitted for inguinal hernia repair using epidural anesthesia. Use of ketorolac has shown initial favorable results. More research is needed to further define its role and side effects in postoperative pain management.
A frittata packed with all the low-carb vegetables in your crisper drawer is a seriously solid keto breakfast. Feel free to also add some meat to the situation, like cooked shredded chicken or pork, crumbled sausage, or bacon. Cheese is another nice addition, especially harder cheese like Parmesan and aged Cheddar, which tend to be lower in carbs but still deliver on flavor. You’ll want to pay particular attention to the vegetables you use. Stick to low-carb options like broccoli or greens and be strategic about the use of sweet vegetables like bell peppers.
Ok so I made them again (for the 3rd time) and followed the recipe to a tee, but they still turned out super flat (taste good though). Should I be letting the cream cheese soften before mixing the ingredients? Maybe that makes them flat when its right out of the fridge? I don’t know, I’m just desperate for fluffy pancakes like the photo and like what many of you got! Any tips would be greatly appreciated guys!
I am new to keto cooking and I just had to try this recipe. What a winner! I doubled the recipe to feed my husband and teenaged son. It made 11 4-5″ pancakes. I layered them with fresh strawberries and whipped heavy cream for the boys and the loved them! I used a bit move sweeter and about a full tsp of cinnamon in the batch. Thanks for the recipe it really worked well!
