Chris Bair is a technology and computer geek. He became involved in the nutritionally complete "future foods" movement in January 2014, originally with a conventional recipe and later switching to a high fat, low carb "ketogenic" variant on October 2014. In January 2015 he created the recipe for Keto Chow and released it without restriction for anyone to use, at the same time he began mixing the recipe up for people that wanted a finished product and has seen steady growth in the business every month since.
I tried mixing the PB2 powdered peanut butter into my Keto Chow powder all at once while I was mixing a week instead of adding 12g into each individual meal. Worked out great! It simplified making the meals (only had to weigh once, instead of twice) and when mixed up fully there were less clumps […]
I cloned my Keto Chow Recipe and added PB2 to it so I could get actual numbers instead of hoping I was good with a calculator. I also put the specific nutrition info for the Rich Chocolate flavored protein powder since the different flavors have slightly different values. What I came up with looks really good. […]
Last week I posted about my disappointment with Dymatize “Gourmet” having too many carbs because I couldn’t try their Peanut Butter Chocolate flavor. I decided then to grab a 16 ounce jar of PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter (they also make a much smaller 6.5 ounce container it’s nearly the same price as the 16) and try […]
I got a message asking what the difference was between the Dymatize Nutrition Elite “Gourmet Vanilla” and Dymatize Elite Gourmet “French Vanilla” – In a nutshell: the difference is carbs. I freaked out and got super excited when I saw that the “gourmet”line has peanut butter chocolate flavor. I almost ordered some right then and […]
I posted this to /r/keto last week, decided it might be nice to have it here too. I started “Obese” (>30 BMI) now I’m just “Overweight”. First time posting progress pics. I was going to wait longer but I was just at a conference where they were doing headshots. I had a similar one taken right before […]
I still haven’t heard anything from MaxK about him launching a new place to order People Chow. To re-cap briefly: I stopped mixing people chow for new customers and am only sending it to existing subscribers. In my opinion Keto Chow is way better than People Chow, even if you’re not going full-bore with a […]
Yesterday for kicks I did a little experiment and didn’t eat anything from 21:00 the night before until 18:00, so 21 hours without eating just to see what would happen. I had read that doing a ketogenic diet my body would cope with fasting extremely well, and it did. I still drank water and some zero […]
