Keto as a Way of Life
Being successful on Keto doesn’t require a lot of special products. Just read labels, keep an eye on your macros and stay focused.
There are a few products that we use, though, that make life a little easier. Some of those are listed here. Please let us know if there are products that you use that we may want to try out.
Apple Cider Vinegar Capsules
We wanted the benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar, but we couldn’t handle drinking the stuff; even mixing it with other things.
So we turned to this supplement.
When we started Keto, we noticed discomfort in our Thyroid glands; just a sort of tight feeling in the front of our throats.
Discovering that Keto can cause a slight Iodine deficiency, we began to supplement with this brand and it took care of the discomfort.
NOTE: I can't stress enough. If you notice or suspect problems with your Thyroid, see a physician. We're not doctors. This is just something that worked for us.
This is the blood ketone meter we use. We like it because it lets us check blood ketones as well as glucose.
Here's the text right from the Amazon page, and I think it's pretty spot on:
"Blood testing is the most accurate way to test for ketone and glucose levels. The Keto-Mojo Testing Kit exceeds strict FDA and International standards ensuring you get the best measurement results possible."
When you're on Keto, especially if you do intermittant fasting, it's important to make sure you get all your vitamins.
There may be better multivitamins out there, but we like this one because it's designed specifically for low carb diets.
We used this when we first started Keto because someone recommended it to us, and neither Rebecca nor I ever suffered from Keto Flu.
A Nashville-based business that sources their meat from select local farmers.
They process all their products themselves and sell those products online to make great meat available nationwide.
We were attracted to them at first because they're local to us.
We continue to support Porter Road because their service and products are amazing!
