  1. [Recipe] Keto Bounty Bars (20 minutes | 2 hours in fridge): Bounty bars were a hit back in the 90s in Europe. Creamy coconut wrapped in chocolate..what is not to like? This recipe is a favorite when you truly miss chocolate while keto-ing. Ingredients like coconut, coconut oil, and stevia go a long way. Store in refrigerator.

  2. [Resource] Break Your Weight Loss Plateau on Keto: Not tracking your macros and/or your calories is a common reason for plateauing. Boring, we know. Exercise also helps break through them. This checklist helps to correct course when you’ve veered off slightly. Ellen Davis wrote this, who has a Master’s degree in Applied Clinical Nutrition.

  3. [Science] Diabetes is incurable… Right?: How many times have we heard that this “condition” is manageable with medications but you have to live with this for the rest of your life? Time to question the status quo. This newly published (2017) randomized control trial just proved what some doctors have been doing - “curing” Type 2 diabetes by prescribing a low carb diet. Send this to someone who has diabetes and have them find a low carb doctor near them.

  4. [Recipe] Coconut Lime Chicken (40 minutes total): A solid dish that can be enjoyed by families with both keto-ers and not. It has all the essential keto ingredients. Add rice for non-keto-ers. We didn’t use arrowroot starch, added more coconut cream and it came out well.

  5. [Resource] How much protein is bad for ketosis: Rule of thumb: eat 0.7 to 0.9 grams of protein per pound of lean body mass. But these numbers are quite vague and hard to calculate without knowing your specific measurements. Eating too much (or too little) can affect your weight loss and muscle.
