For Bacon Cups: Take 8 slices of bacon and cut crosswise. Invert a muffin tin and lay two halved strips on both sides. Wrap entire cup with a whole slice of bacon. Repeat for each cup. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Place inverted muffin tin on wider baking pan for easier cleanup. Bake until crispy, 20-25 minutes.
The ketogenic diet is a mainstream dietary therapy that was developed to reproduce the success and remove the limitations of the non-mainstream use of fasting to treat epilepsy.[Note 2] Although popular in the 1920s and 30s, it was largely abandoned in favour of new anticonvulsant drugs. Most individuals with epilepsy can successfully control their seizures with medication. However, 20–30% fail to achieve such control despite trying a number of different drugs. For this group, and for children in particular, the diet has once again found a role in epilepsy management.
I’ve made this with any kind of tea for 2 years and still LOVE it! Costco sells Kerrygold butter which is from Ireland and made from grass fed cows. Trader Joe’s sells it too. I add 1/2 tsp each cinnamon and turmeric and stevia and its Devine 🙂
Counting net carbs is more critical than counting calories on a ketogenic diet, but alcohol is the exception to the rule. Alcohol contains 100 percent empty calories and you can easily drink a meal’s worth of calories without realizing you are over your limit.
I use my vitamix. I tried using my magic bullet but it’s been leaking with hot coffee and sprays all over the place. My vitamix was made for hot liquids so I just use that even though it’s much larger than the magic bullet.
Fat is the cornerstone of the keto diet, making up the bulk of calories. An individual consuming 2,000 calories per day would need to consume 144 to 177 grams of fat. Fats make up 70-80% of your calories. Since fat is the main source of nutrition on a ketogenic diet, it’s important to source high-quality, healthy fats, which you’ll read about below.
The key to finding keto-friendly dairy is to look at the carb and sugar content. Regular cows milk is generally out as it’s fairly carb heavy, but heavy creams are a great and tasty substitute. Experiment with new cheese findings!
You cannot use a Nutribullet because there is no way for the hot steam to escape and you will have a mess. I have a Black and Decker high speed blender that works fantastic. I chose this blender for it’s powerful wattage, compared to the others that were available at the time in a similar price range. It also has a glass jar and is dishwasher safe. Any blender should do if it okay to use hot liquids in it.
Once you’re more accustomed to this way of eating, you can choose to lower carbs even more if you’d like (perhaps only from time to time), down to about 20 grams of net carbs daily. This is considered the standard, “strict” amount that many keto dieters aim to adhere to for best results, but remember that everyone is a bit different.
During this time, you will likely feel a significant drop in strength and ability to exert physical energy. Luckily, once you become adapted you should see drastic improvements in these areas that are even greater than when you were sugar-adapted!
This is perhaps one of the most well-known ketogenic diet side effects. Keto flu is exactly what it sounds like, the onset of flu-like symptoms that arises shortly after beginning a ketogenic diet. This includes symptoms like fatigue, runny nose, nausea, and headache.
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.
Some of the food, for example the Not Your Caveman’s Chili, is used in the first week and then again in the last week. You could use the same batch you cook in the first, which not only saves you energy and time, but also saves money. Just freeze it and bring it out to defrost as needed.

I am curious about what has been referred to as “keto rash”. I decided to shift from a GAPS Diet to a ketogenic one. I wasn’t tracking my carbs specifically and was doing well. Then I developed this rash on various parts of my body. I originally thought it might have been either pecan or MCT (C8) that I started having, but I have eliminated both of those. Then I did some research and realized that others have also experienced this rash after starting a strict Ketogenic Diet. There are a few solutions running about–most of which include introducing carbs at higher levels. Antibiotics were also listed. Anyway, I was wondering if you have run across this type of rash as it relates to starting a low-carb diet? Any thoughts, Dr. Jockers?
Thank you Dr Jockers! I recently came across your website and i absolutely love what you do. I am an advanced practice nurse and just started a part time keto coaching practice.I am already amazed by the changes i see in my clients. Do you have by chance a training program for keto coaches. If not, is there one out there that you recommend? Thank you in advance.
This is where we have to depart! Sorry to say but you’re on your own. You should have plenty of leftovers that are frozen, ready, and waiting! I know a lot of you out there have trouble with timing and are busy people – so making sure that some nights you make extras to freeze is important. All those leftovers you have in the freezer? Use them up! Create your own meal plan, at first using this as a guide, and then completely doing it yourself. Once you get the hang of it, it’ll be a sinch – I promise you 🙂
Lean body mass is calculated by taking your current weight and subtracting your body fat %. The daily protein goal of a ketogenic diet is based on lean body mass because fat mass does not take protein to maintain. The 0.6g-1.2g number is based on your activity level. If you’re sedentary you’ll be closer to the 0.6g number. You want to hit this goal as much as possible to prevent muscle loss.
Ketosis is actually a mild form of ketoacidosis. Ketoacidosis mostly affects people with type 1 diabetes. In fact, it is the leading cause of death of people with diabetes who are under 24 years of age.
Note: If the vegetable you’re looking for is not listed, it’s most likely too high carb and shouldn’t be consumed on a ketogenic diet. Double check by comparing the vegetable with a credited nutritional database to see if it fits in with your daily macros >
A: The most common ways to track your carbs is through MyFitnessPal and their mobile app. You cannot track net carbs on the app, although you can track your total carb intake and your total fiber intake. To get your net carbs, just subtract your total fiber intake from your total carb intake. I have written an article on How to Track Carbs on MyFitnessPal.
Option 2: Whole milk, unsweetened yogurt mixed with full-fat sour cream, a few raspberries, chia seeds, and walnuts. “This type of combo requires careful carb- and portion-counting since all yogurts naturally have lactose, which is a carb,” says Stefanski. “Pairing it with a carb-free protein like two eggs can help balance out the macros.”
Have you gotten your thyroid tested? Many of those symptoms sound a low thyroid. The Root Cause, by Izabella Wentz, another one is Thyroid Healthy, a great book by Suzy Cohen. The Autoimmune Fix Dr. Tom O’Bryan. Dr. Datis Kaarrazian have 2 great books for thyroid and the brain.
Everything else hits the pause button, including properly digesting your alcohol, including the carb-heavy meal you may have considered a solid base for drinking. When this happens, your body stores that excess energy of sugar and carbs as fat.
The ketogenic diet, better known as keto, is a diet where you eat high amounts of fat and small amounts of carbs to enter ketosis. In ketosis, your body burns ketones (instead of glucose) for fuel, which provides numerous physiological benefits for your body.
Within the first two weeks of starting keto, some individuals experience adverse effects known as “keto flu.” This is the result of the sudden removal of carbohydrates from the brain and body. These are minor but uncomfortable symptoms that might include:
While these three causes are seemingly different, they are actually all related. When becoming keto-adapted initially, your body has been running on sugar for years. When you suddenly switch to fats, your body has to essentially build the cellular machinery necessary to generate and utilize ketone bodies as a fuel source.
In more moderate amounts, foods that are high in protein but low- or no-carb, including grass-fed meat, pasture-raised poultry, cage-free eggs, bone broth, wild-caught fish, organ meats and some full-fat (ideally raw) dairy products.
My son who is 38 years old, started a Keto Diet about three months ago. In September and October of 2017, we found number 4 and 5 fast-growing astrocytoma brain tumors. In February of last year, they found brain tumor three. It was treated with a high 30-minute dose of radiation, followed by 5 days on and 23 off, oral chemo plan for 12 months and it has shown no growth (The first and second tumors were surgically removed in 2008 and 2013 and these were given 5 weeks of radiation treatments, the second received a 6 month oral chemo treatment).
“Macros” is a shortened version of macronutrients. These are the “big 3” – fats, proteins, and carbs. You can use a calculator to find out how much or how little of each you need in order to attain your goals. You can find the calculator on the navigation bar of the site!
Dorma, u are lactose intolerant cuz im sure u are not taking raw milk, raw butter, etc. If u take them pasteurized, the digestive enzymes that come naturally with milk, are killed so thats why people cannot tolerate milk, cuz the enzymes that God created are not there to digest it.
