There’s a new kid on the block helping make keto easier than ever before. Newly launched, Keto Kind is a tasty plant-based keto shake that supports your ketogenic lifestyle.
Whether you are following a ketogenic diet for weight loss, managing a chronic illness, or simply improving your quality of life, Keto Kind helps make keto simple.
“Regimented health protocols can be challenging to adhere to, especially when it’s new for us. That’s why we decided to create a complete shake with 280 calories and a 3:1 keto ratio* to help make keto easy, and to provide an alternative for those…
There is a constant dance inside our cells, maintaining a balance between processes that build up (anabolic) and break down (catabolic) based on the substrates available to produce the cell’s energy currency, ATP.
Catabolic processes produce ATP.
Anabolic processes consume ATP.
We make ATP mainly by breaking down metabolic fuels like sugar, fat, and ketone bodies. This occurs inside the mitochondria, the cell’s “powerhouse,” where the bulk of ATP production takes place.
To use energy, ATP is broken down into ADP, which can be further broken down to AMP. Ultimately though, using energy means we are decreasing ATP levels.
Here is a list of modern/chronic diseases associated with metabolic damage (i.e., mitochondrial dysfunction, insulin resistance, and metabolic inflexibility):
And I am sure I am missing others.
Now, I am not saying these conditions are caused by metabolic damage, but then again, I’m not saying they aren’t. I simply find it fascinating that despite the apparent differences between all of these conditions, they share many metabolic characteristics.
What if these conditions were downstream…
Last September I completed 30-days of eating only meat and animal products. Historically my diet has been primarily plant-based, so this style of eating was incredibly foreign to me. In fact, it was during these 30-days I cooked a steak for the first time. I’ll save my reasons why I transitioned from a plant-based to animal-based diet for a separate post; for now, I want to focus on what I learned from this 30-day experiment.
During these 30-days I ate nothing but animal foods as I already said, with the exception of coffee, herbs, and spices. Oh and Franks hot…
Peter Attia’s podcast, The Drive, is one of my favourites, but due to the complexity of conversation, if I’m not taking notes I might as well be listening to someone speak in a different language.
And I presume I’m not the only, so with that — here are my notes from episode #46 with Chris Masterjohn, PhD

What came first: the ability to build tools, hunt animals, communicate, etc. or the unique size and cognition of the modern human brain?
Researchers Stephen Cunnane and Michael Crawford make a sound case for how and why a shore-based diet and fat babies explain the evolution of the large human brain that led to the sophistication and intelligence to hunt, develop language, and socialize.
In order for the brain to expand by nearly one third in under a million years, it must have required an environment that supported the increasing metabolic and nutritional demand to…
