Back in 2019 I did a built bar review that I titled “Honest Built Bars Review | The Best Low Carb Protein Bars I've Ever Had“.

Since then that review….and BUILT BARS itself have taken off. So I'm back with another Honest Built Bars Review for 2020.

This review includes all of their NEW flavours and improved bars. Not only that, they've also released new products like NEW built boost flavours and an entirely new protein + energy product that we'll discuss in a later post! Continue reading “Honest Built Bars Review 2020 | NEW Flavours”

How Do You Calculate Keto Macros?

Disclaimer: This post contains some affiliate links

I cannot even begin to tell you guys the amount of times I've heard this question asked or the amount of times I wished I'd written a post on it because it's something that I think confuses a lot of people and prevents them from starting a ketogenic diet.

In reality, macros really aren't THAT complicated and once you get the hang of counting them, you'll wonder why you ever found it difficult in the first place! Continue reading “How Do You Calculate Keto Macros?”

The Ultimate Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies Guide

The Ultimate Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies Guide

the ultimate keto chocolate chip cookie guide

Here we have it. After what seems like an endless amount of cookies and 2 days of experimenting, I have developed The Ultimate Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies Guide.

This guide will discuss my successes and failures as I attempt to create the perfect keto chocolate chip cookie or the “Ultimate Keto Chocolate Chip Cookies”.

The perfect keto chocolate chip cookie to me has to be chewy on the inside with just a slightly undercooked center, but also crispy on the outer edges and filled with delicious pockets of rich bittersweet chocolate.

To some the perfect chocolate chip cookie might look different and that's why I love experimenting. I'm now able to give recommendations on how to alter the following recipe to fit your tastes so you get YOUR perfect keto chocolate chip cookies…not mine. (But I'll give some suggestions along the way).

Is Vital Wheat Gluten Keto ?

Is Vital Wheat Gluten Keto ?

What is Vital Wheat Gluten? Is Vital Wheat Gluten Keto? Does Vital Wheat Gluten have carbs?

These are the questions I get asked most often when I include Vital Wheat Gluten in any of my recipes labelled “low carb” or “keto”.

I often get comments similar to these:

“It includes wheat, it's not keto”

“Can I replace the vital wheat gluten with something low carb?”

“what's the purpose of vital wheat gluten?”

I've finally decided it's time to put these questions and concerns to rest! Let's get into it.. Continue reading “Is Vital Wheat Gluten Keto ?”

How do I get into ketosis.. FAST?

This is the question we're all here for.

I'm going to go ahead and assume you are really here for one of 4 reasons:

  1. You've heard about the Keto Diet, you're interested, you'd like to try it…but you want results FAST. Thus, you want to get into ketosis FAST.
  2. You've already been on the keto diet for a while but you've recently knocked yourself out of ketosis via a cheat day, vacation or maybe even a planned splurge.
  3. Your planning on a Holiday or vacation cheat ahead of time and want to know how to come back from it correctly & quickly.
  4. You have no idea what you're doing and happened to click this link. You're slightly interested and have continued to read this far…so you might as well stick around.

No matter what reason you are here for, WELCOME. I hope you find this information helpful and useful when it comes to your future keto endeavours.

5 Benefits of MCT Oil on a Keto Diet

5 Benefits of MCT Oil on a Keto Diet

MCT oil has recently taken off in the keto world of dieting. It's a supplement that not many know about before stumbling upon keto groups and forums.. So why is it that MCT oil is so pertinent in the keto community? What makes it so special? Here's what I've come to conclude..

Supplements I Take on a Keto Diet (Prevent dry eyes, hair loss, headaches etc.)

Supplements I Take on a Keto Diet (Prevent dry eyes, hair loss, headaches etc.)

Hey guys! Today I wanted to do something a little different..no recipe but I promise you I'll be back to the food posts in no time, haha.

I wanted to discuss the importance of supplementing on the keto diet and what I personally take.

I've been on the keto diet off and on 3 times in my life. The first couple times I struggled with several issues.
 

Attempt #1:

-I had MAJOR keto flu for the first 5 days (aka, pounding headaches, no energy to do anything, felt nauseous after eating)

Attempt #2:

-I went through less of a keto flu as I started taking some supplements but started experiencing hair-loss and red, dry eyes about a month in.

Attempt #3:

-I experienced almost NO KETO FLU(maybe a slight headache occasionally), I supplemented regularly and have had no hair loss and minimal dry eyes.

So what did I do differently this time around?

Well, I actually did my research (scouring the furthest corners of the internet). And I've finally come up with an awesome supplement regime that works for me and will likely work for you as well if you've experienced any of the symptoms I went through! You don't have to follow this to a T but I hope it gives you a better idea of a healthy low-carb supplement regime.

My Current Routine:

Waking:

    • Drink at least 2 cups water
    • Coffee with 1/2-1 tbsp MCT oil (Helps to give you an immediate energy boost!)and a bit of cream

  • Breakfast heavy in sodium (aka eggs and bacon OR just have a cup of salt water OR a pickle with your coffee! haha)

Supplements:

During the day:

  • Drink as much water as I can
  • Eat a few pickles or drink a cup of beef broth throughout the day
  • Aim to eat foods high in potassium like spinach, avocados, almonds

Supplements:

  • 1x potassium 100mg pill with each meal and another if I feel muscle spasms or cramps

**Take-in additional potassium and sodium if working out**

End of day:

  • Take another potassium pill if needed
  • Optional: decaf coffee and MCT oil (I find it helps me fall asleep!)

And that's it! There's my day of supplementing.

Of course you also want to make sure you are taking in adequate fat and protein and keeping your NET carbs under 50g a day at least… and then you are good to go!

Happy Keto-ing! 🙂
