One of the most common (non-food-specific) questions I get regarding ketogenic diets is whether or not keto can cause thyroid problems. Like many health and nutrition questions, there really is no simple answer here. As most of the questions I receive ask about hypothyroidism and ketosis, that is what we’ll address here. I recently […]
Today, Stevie and I explore the topic of dairy, and the all important question, should you eat dairy on a ketogenic diet? Notes and links are listed below! If you’ve got any questions you’d like us to answer in a future podcast, leave a comment, or contact either of us via our social media channels.
Hands down, one of the questions I receive the most is “Can I eat [insert food here] on keto?” This is a totally understandable question for a few reasons: Keto is often presented as a strict, rigid diet with a lot of rules, and even more dogma There are so many conflicting reports on what […]
This week, I got a great question from a reader asking about the relationship between vegan or vegetarian ketogenic diets and high triglycerides. More specifically, they wanted to know if a ketogenic diet would be appropriate for someone with high triglycerides. In order to explore this further, let’s take a look at just what triglycerides are, […]

Suddenly, “intuitive eating” sounds like some sort of no-diet miracle, and less of a basic survival mechanism that somehow managed to be ingrained in most species. Well, it’s […]
I’ve posted before about hormonal issues that are often resolved by a ketogenic diet (PCOS and endometriosis), but I have yet to talk about a predominantly male hormonal issue: testosterone. I was recently asked to write an article about natural ways to boost testosterone for work, and thought it would be interesting to explore the relationship […]
We all metabolize carbohydrates differently, and in this episode, we’ll take a look at the factors involved with carbohydrate digestion and metabolism. We’ll also look at the general recommendations for carbohydrates in a low carb or ketogenic diet. Fun!
How many carbs to eat on a low carb diet can be a pretty tricky subject. I’ve been pretty open about the fact that I eat more carbohydrates every day than the average low carb bear. I eat loads of veggies, and have some berries and yogurt. I know – I’m a real wild one. Usually, […]
If you’ve ever spent time browsing the #keto hashtag on Instagram (what? I like to get meal ideas!), you’ve likely seen pictures of ketostix, proudly displaying their pinkish purple results. It’s exciting! It’s an almost instant way to tell if you’re in ketosis…sort of. Either way, the concentration of keto strip pictures on social media […]
