I love this recipe! I just tried it myself two days ago and was pretty surprised by the taste. I’ve been drinking butter coffee and tea for some time, but only recently have I started branching out and trying out some other recipes and ingredients.
I see and hear a lot of people fumbling when it comes to cooking for others. There’s a lot of reasons why people struggle with this, but my Oopsie Burger will both feed, and impress, whoever you are entertaining.
Pour your freshly brewed coffee in a blender or a heat-proof jar (if using immersion blender). Add butter, Octane Oil, and any suggested optional ingredients. Pulse until smooth and frothy. If you’re not using all the coffee at once, do not leave it in the French press. Instead, pour it into a jar or a thermal carafe or thermal mug to keep it warm.
What’s more, coconut oil may help obese adults lose weight and belly fat. In one study, men who ate 2 tablespoons (30 ml) of coconut oil per day lost 1 inch (2.5 cm), on average, from their waistlines without making any other dietary changes (41, 42).
The ’90s engrained the fear of fat in all of our brains. Eating fat will not make you fat, but rather using fat as your body’s primary fuel source can actually keep you full of energy and keep your hunger at bay.
Dinner, again, will be pretty simplistic. Meats, vegetables, high fat dressings are the center of our life. Maybe even a slathering of butter on our vegetables since we’re getting friskier. Don’t over think things in the first 2 weeks; simple is success.
This week we’re introducing a slight fast. We’re going to get full on fats in the morning and fast all the way until dinner time. Not only are there a myriad of health benefits to this, it’s also easier on our eating schedule (and cooking schedule). I suggest eating (rather, drinking) your breakfast at 7am and then eating dinner at 7pm. Keeping 12 hours between your 2 meals. This will help put your body into a fasted state.
With that being said, there are of course days that are very hard for me, in particular my days off of work. It seems like every second Im thinking about a carb & sugar filled meal and even as im typing I am craving something that I would normally eat when not following a Keto lifestyle. This is not a normal craving where my taste buds are buzzing or im swallowing just thinking about said food. This craving is pure mental, where I simply remember the taste of a pasta or dessert I ate months ago.
A: First take a breath, it’s not the end of the world. You may find that your weight goes up temporarily as your body retains water. You may also find that the scale goes down pretty quickly when you lose that water. If you see the scale fluctuating, please keep in mind that there’s a biological reason for it.
Have you heard of the eat right 4 your blood type diet? Changed my life. My pain, ulcerative colitis, acne went away after avoiding the foods on the avoid list. I am type O- so I pretty much follow paleo. Dr Axe is amazing. I tell everyone about him..thank you Dr. axe
Here’s a couple of our most popular YouTube videos that give an idea of how to start a ketogenic diet. We release new videos 3 times per week ranging from cooking, to grocery shopping, to taste testing new keto snacks.
Blinten advised dieters not to skip meals because your body goes into overdrive the next time you eat. That can actually cause you to eat more, not less. She suggested eating your largest meal at midday, then having a healthy afternoon snack.
Becoming adapted to using fat for fuel, known as keto-adaptation, while on a keto diet can have benefits during physical activity. If you engage in long periods of exercise, ketosis will help your body burn fat for energy more quickly when your body has used up its glycogen stores.
A randomized control study examined the effects of a ketogenic diet combined with Crossfit training on body composition and performance[*]. Subjects following a ketogenic diet lost more weight, body fat percentage, fat mass and BMI compared to the control group who did Crossfit without dietary changes. The study showed the following:
Below you’ll find a list of vegetables based on how low carb they are, so if you need help finding a certain one use the Find function (Ctrl + F). These are based on 1/2 cup (~4 oz.) or 100g servings, which is the general recommended serving size for vegetables.
This Spanish twist on a jalapeño popper is keto-friendly and delicious. Filling jalapeño peppers with manchego cheese and a paprika-laden cream cheese gives this traditional dish a deeper flavor profile, and is an easy stretch for a less adventurous eater. Manchego cheese has gained popularity the past few years and for good reason: It’s salty and nutty and basically perfect. Wrapping the pepper in prosciutto keeps the filling inside and gives the dish a crunchy bite. For more protein and taste, add chorizo to the filling. Makes 12.
It’s a little more invasive than the other keto testing methods, as it requires a prick of blood from your finger. Test kits are around $40, and blood ketone test strips go for roughly $5 each (you’ll need one for every time you test).

Some people believe that eating keto is more expensive but this isn’t true. Initially, you might find yourself needing to restock the pantry with keto-friendly items but beyond that, eating keto isn’t more expensive than eating normally.
The classic ketogenic diet is not a balanced diet and only contains tiny portions of fresh fruit and vegetables, fortified cereals and calcium-rich foods. In particular, the B vitamins, calcium and vitamin D must be artificially supplemented. This is achieved by taking two sugar-free supplements designed for the patient’s age: a multivitamin with minerals and calcium with vitamin D. A typical day of food for a child on a 4:1 ratio, 1,500 kcal (6,300 kJ) ketogenic diet comprises:
Green beans are a member of the legume family, but they have significantly fewer carbs than most other legumes. Sometimes green beans referred to as snap beans. One cup of green beans has only 6g net carbs, so they’re a great addition to many side dishes.
Both animal fats (saturated fats) and plant-based fats can be consumed on the keto diet. Healthy fat sources include butter, tallow and ghee from animals or coconut oil, olive oil, sustainable palm oil and MCT oil from plants.
Fat and protein are your allies before drinking. Reach for a keto-friendly meal abundant in healthy fats with some protein. This powerful combination helps slow the effects of alcohol, so it delivers less of a metabolic strike to your system.
As a general rule of thumb, the sweeter the vegetable is – the more sugar it has in it. You have to be very careful with the amount you consume from things such as carrots, onions, and squash. You can easily see the difference in carb counts between the above and below ground vegetables above. Of course, you can eat these in moderation, but you need to watch your intake.
No matter what your diet has been to this point, keto will be a big change. If you’re coming from a standard American diet (SAD) background, your carbs will go way down, protein may either go up or down, and fat will go way up. If you’re coming from a bodybuilding-style diet, your fat intake will jump to alarming levels, and your protein will likely drop significantly.
Improved Brain Function – Not only does green tea contain caffeine, it also contains L-theanine, which is an amino acid. L-theanine increases your GABA activity, which improves anxiety, dopamine, and alpha waves.
“In an otherwise healthy individual it can create serious complications, including infections if the tube gets contaminated, increased sodium levels, and it can cause dehydration and constipation,” Cimperman added. “What would even possess people to want to walk around with a tube up their nose?”
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 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.
If you experience symptoms like fatigue, intense hunger and cravings, light-headedness, or heart palpitations, this may be a sign your blood sugar has dropped too low. Use a blood glucose monitor to track your body’s response to the diet change and make sure your body is adapting properly. If necessary consult your physician for necessary medication changes.
Some supplement their keto diets with MCT oil (MCT stands for medium-chain triglycerides). Jadin’s opinion: It may help boost ketosis, but it’s not necessary and some people can’t tolerate the supplement.
A: First you have to find out whether you’re constipated or just not shitting as much. If you’re constipated as in you feel like you need to go but you can’t and it’s painful, some fibre supplements may help. Otherwise, if you don’t feel the need to go, you just don’t need to go lol. Since you’re eating nutrient-dense food there is probably less waste to be excreted. This is also the case if you’re eating much less food than before. Don’t worry about it unless it’s causing discomfort.
When you eat a high-fat diet, you slow down your gastric emptying and your motility, which can set you up for constipation, says Jadin. Making sure you’re getting that extra bit of sodium, eating enough fiber-filled non-starchy vegetables and drinking plenty of fluids (since you urinate more on the keto diet) can move things along.
Something that makes the keto diet different from other low-carb diets is that it does not “protein-load.” Protein is not as big a part of the diet as fat is. Reason being: In small amounts, the body can change protein to glucose, which means if you eat too much of it, especially while in the beginning stages of the keto diet, it will slow down your body’s transition into ketosis.
