11 Months Keto Update, MCT oil experiment, and carb up opinion

I’m trying out a new format this month for my ketogenic diet update – video!


If you are new to this series, you can catch up on all my monthly updates: Month 1, Month 2, Month 3, Month 4, Month 5, Month 6, Month 7, Month 8, Month 9, Month 10


What do I talk about in my 11 month update?

  • My weight
  • What I’m eating
  • Update on dairy-free: will I continue dairy free?
  • Hair regrowth: does hair loss mean keto is bad for my thyroid?
  • Ketone blood strips: Have I been doing keto wrong all this time?
  • MCT oil vs. coconut oil: which is better in coffee for ketosis?
  • Why do some people get hungry after drinking Bulletproof coffee?
  • My opinions on carb ups (spoiler alert: don’t do it!)
  • Continuing health issues after car accident: leg pain and central apnea

Here is the Keto Talk with Jimmy Moore and Doc Nally, that I reference, where they talk about carb ups being unnecessary for women.

Keto Chat: Bacon Buffet Taste Test

The Keto Chat crew is back with another taste test for you. It’s a hard job, but someone has to do it: taste all the bacon! In this episode, we taste 6 different kinds of bacon – from high-end, sugar-free paleo bacon to good ol’ Oscar Mayer bacon, plus a bargain bacon that I picked up while shopping and a couple of others. Which one stands out above the rest? Which one falls so flat (literally falling on the floor) that even my cats won’t touch it?

What would you like to see us taste-test next?

Lowest Carb Caesar Dressing with Garlic Coconut Oil

I’m launching a 90 Day Keto Challenge in January 2016. Would you like to join me? It includes weekly webinars, meal plans and shopping list, a workbook, and private online support group. For more info, click here.


 

I’ve been playing around with Nature’s Way’s new flavored liquid coconut oils and created this Caesar dressing from their garlic flavored one. Typically, Caesar dressing calls for up to 6 cloves of garlic, which is a lot of carbs. By using this garlic flavored oil, you can avoid all the carbs while still getting that super garlicky flavor. Don’t let the anchovy paste scare you. It is used as the salty, umami component, so it should not taste fishy, only delicious.

In a small bowl, whisk together the mustard, vinegar, mayonnaise and anchovy paste. While continuing to whisk, add the coconut oil in a slow, steady stream until completely incorporated.

Yield: 3/4 cup, about 6 servings (2 tablespoons each)
