Keto and Coping – Daily blog 03202020

March 20

Staying home and social distancing. I get my groceries delivered by Whole Foods Market. Their usual 2 hour free delivery, is now taking about 2 to 3 days, but under the current bizarre circumstances, I figure I ought to cut them some slack. And they, like everyone else, are out of many things.

One thing I like about the way Whole Foods does it is that they open a text window while filling my order. If they are out of something, they can suggest a substitution which I can either accept or reject in real time.

For example, this morning they text’d me than they were out of jalapeños and suggested the much hotter serranos. I accepted. I hope I don’t come to regret that decision.

  1. Wonderful, you inspired me. I must say that it is very nice to see you put in so much work into this article. I admire your zeal. The Keto diet has also helped me to some point especially with blood sugar levels. I am very sure you will lose some more in the next six months as well if you stick to the Keto diet. Great work and thanks for sharing.

    1. Thanks for your response and especially for your encouragement. I’m glad it’s working for you, too. I’m a type 2 diabetic so blood sugar is important to me, too. On keto, my fasting blood sugar has gone from the high 200s to usually between 80 and 110. 

  2. I don’t think I have a whole foods that will deliver to my house, but that sounds like a great option especially in these times right now.

    I have a Kroger and Publix near me, so I might look to see if they offer this same service.

    Also I see that your title is about keto. Can you explain real quick what kind of diet that is ? Thanks.

    1. Lots of markets and restaurants have always delivered and many more are gearing up. There is probably one or more in your neighborhood. Check the website of your favorite market.

      As for the Keto diet, the theory is to cut way back on carbohydrates to cause your body to switch from glucose to to ketones as it’s primary fuel source. Ketones are manufactured by your body out of triglyceride, aka, fat.

  3. The fact that i have come to learn something tangible from this post is satisfying. The make of your website is nice and the simplicity of the color selection makes it beautiful. the effect of covid 19 on our movements restricts what we can eat. i am hoping to have what i ordered for also. i would work on alternatives just for this period

    1. Thanks for your kind words. I hope you get all you ordered. I got everything I needed to make a cheese and mushroom omelette, except eggs.  I believe things will sort themselves out if we are patient. There really isn’t a food shortage. A disruption of the supply chain logistics, caused mostly by hoarding and panic buying, makes it seem worse than it is.
