Travel: Practical Ketogenics, Egypt.

Yes, I’m off on my travels again! This time it’s sunny Egypt for some scuba diving. It’s a real privilege to be returning to the Red Sea where I did my initial diver training many years ago, offering divers some of the best diving that this planet of ours has to offer. It’s only over the…

Burgers with Onion Relish

Tried these for the first time a couple of days ago and they really are out of this world! The burgers themselves are very simple but the key here is the onion relish which really sets off this recipe. Even though the relish contains a small amount of honey, it’s still well within even strict…

Measuring Ketones

In my previous post, I talked about measuring blood sugar. In this one I’ll talk about measuring ketones: how, when & why?

These can be measured by yourself at home using over-the-counter devices, obtainable…

Measuring your Blood Glucose

Meat sauce: – 1-2 aubergines – 400…

Roast chicken: simple, quick & great value

Available freshly made at just about every supermarket chain nowadays, it’s simply not worth roasting your own chicken at home anymore. Great value, with the roast skin being a nice source of fat. Save the carcass for making a nice bouillon later on. Nothing goes to waste! Just go easy on the white meat in…

This is a great snack if you’re feeling a little peckish in the afternoons. I lived off these during my weight loss phase.
