Introduction: 10 Top Keto Blogs on the Internet
Here at KetoFlavor we’re obsessed with keto culture. We’re continuously amazed by the immense amount of support, resources, tools and of course tantalizingly delicious recipes shared daily by the ketogenic community. While this list is by no means exhaustive, we wanted to share what we think are the top keto blogs on the internet. We hope you enjoy!
Ruled.Me (Comprehensive User’s Guide)
At the top of Ruled’s website, newbies and veteran ketone followers will find information on the Keto Diet and Keto Recipes. Sub-categories include a user guide, diet plan, diet tips, additional information, and even a keto calculator.
Under recipes, Ruled breaks down the ketogenic lifestyle in every meal imaginable, including breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snacks, side items, and condiments. Since most keto fans understand the main meals, let’s examine this dessert recipe:
Keto Mocha Mousse
“This Keto Mocha Mousse is a velvety cloud of rich chocolate and coffee,” writes the Ruled staff. To make this treat, you’ll need ingredients for the cream cheese mixture as well as the whipped cream mixture:
Cream cheese mixture:
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 3 tbsp sour cream
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1 ½ tsp vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup Stevia
- ¼ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 3 tsp instant coffee (optional)
Whipped cream mixture:
- 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
- 1 ½ tsp Stevia
- ½ tsp vanilla extract
In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, butter and sour cream with an electric mixer until smooth. Then, blend the sweetener, vanilla extract, cocoa powder, and coffee powder. Set aside.
In a different mixing bowl, beat the whipping cream until a soft peak forms. Add vanilla extract and sweetener and then beat again. Fold about one-third of the whipped mixture into the cream cheese mixture and deflate the bubbles. Fold the other two-thirds until the whipped cream is distributed evenly.
Transfer the mousse into serving dishes and then place in the refrigerator for at least 2-3 hours. This makes four servings, which are 42g fat, 6.5 net carbs, and 6g protein.
Diet Doctor (Beginner’s Guide)
The Diet Doctor begins by giving away a brief overview of the ketogenic lifestyle. This includes introduction and benefits, knowing what to eat, knowing how to determine the ketogenic state, optimal ketosis, side effects, fine-tuning, and more.
What’s interesting about this site are the charts and photos. In simple, easy-to-understand diagrams, it’s clear that fats and proteins help build muscle and focus in the brain.
The Diet Doctor also makes sure to tell readers when not to follow the diet, such as when you are on medication for diabetes, high blood pressure, or breastfeeding. Each section is short and sweet so it’s great for an overview or a quick answer to nearly any question keto.
KetoConnect (Keto On A Budget)
Despite being a computer engineer and a Law school graduate, Matt and Megha created KetoConnect due to their mutual love of culinary and low-carb meals. Something unique on this site would be their keto budget.
The duo writers behind this budget friendly site have created a shopping list and meal plan, that fits on an infographic while also being easy on the wallet. We even sourced KetoConnect in our original “30 Day Playbook,” which includes a detailed meal plan for two.
Not only does this simple article have 26k shares, but it’s so well-organized, thoughtful, and easy-to-read, nearly anyone could understand the basics of the keto lifestyle by simply looking at this shopping list.
Reddit/keto (Discussion, Community)
For those unfamiliar with Reddit, the website allows for users to post questions and then the community of “Redditors” can answer from personal experience. In addition, Reddit also offers open forums for celebrities and experts to answer questions in the forum. Answers are then upvoted or downvoted.
On Reddit, dieters can research past questions and search information or they can begin new conversations. This is great for those who want to learn about keto questions from a large group of like-minded individuals.
Dr. Axe (Health, Recipes, Fitness)
On Dr. Axe’s website, he believes, “Food is Medicine.” The doctor, Josh Axe, is known for providing training videos and personalized sessions for those who want to know more about essential oils or even repairing their leaky gut. Dr. Axe has also been on the Dr. Oz show to discuss health and fitness.
Some of the recipes on the website include avocado and egg fat bombs, keto bread, cauliflower crusted grilled cheese sandwiches, chicken pad Thai, chocolate fat bombs, cinnamon butter bombs, spinach quiche, and coconut oil mayonnaise.
Fat Burning Man (Interviews, Articles)
Despite mostly promoting his own book and diet, The Wild Diet, Abel James is a “fat-burning man” that believes in natural foods and often interviews ketogenic specialists on his podcast as well as his website.
Abel James has been featured on ABC, People, Women’s Health, NPR, The New York Times, Forbes, and Wired, among others. His website includes gluten-free recipes, testimonials, info on the Wild Diet, tons of ways to help his followers “burn belly fat, beat cravings, and feel great.”
The Tim Ferriss Show / Blog (Interviews, Articles)
Author of The 4-Hour Workweek and Tools of Titans, entrepreneur and human guinea pig Tim Ferriss speaks with world-class performers in an array of different fields. While not everything he delivers relates to health, the articles and podcasts that hit the ketogenic lifestyle dive deeper than most, as the conversations go “into the weeds,” or down a rabbit hole of information.
Our favorite episodes include the interviews with Dom D’Agostone (The Power of the Ketogenic Diet), Dr. Rhonda Patrick (Exploring Smart Drugs, Fasting, and Fat Loss), The Tim Ferriss Radio How (How to Control Stress, Upgrade Your Nutrition, and Build the Mindset of a Gladiator).
Mark’s Daily Apple (Articles, Recipes)
Mark Sisson, the author of The Primal Blueprint, is another expert with his own plan, but it’s pretty close to being completely ketogenic. Mark is now in his mid sixties and has the torso and six-pack of a twenty-something. Personally, Mark allows extra carbs on occasion, so double-check the nutrition on any given recipe before you buy ingredients.
In his book, Mark simplifies his life and those around him by encouraging others to follow “10 Laws,” which include eating plants and animals, avoiding poisonous things (refined sugars), moving frequently (walking), lifting heavy things, sprinting on occasion, getting plenty of sleep, playing in the sun, and a few other simple traits.
Dominic D’Agostino (Science, Keto Research)
While most websites can only summarize the backstory of the ketogenic diet, Dominic D’Agostino is a professor and neuroscience graduate who is leading the pack in uncovering more information on the lifestyle. Dom’s website dives in deep behind the science of anxiety, intermittent fasting (IF), anti-cancer properties and much more.
Keto School (Articles, Science)
KetoSchool uses the Medium platform to share information on the science behind the ketogenic diet. Some articles include “The Science of Optimal Sleep,” “How to Increase Muscle Flexibility,” and “How to Stay Hydrated,” which also discusses how the ketogenic diet fights off headaches and hangovers.
The description reads, “We teach the biochemistry behind ketogenic dieting and discuss new research related to ketogenic health and fitness.” They believe that the more you know, the more you can change your health.
