What is it about?
App Store Description
We have just launched this very simple but very useful calculator which yields a Keto Ratio that lets one pre-plan meals guaranteed to be ketogenic. This easy to use calculator lets one get up and running in a few minutes. One then never again has to only rely on messy urine or blood tests to find out after the meals if one's food was or was not ketogenic. The ratio KetoCalc yields correlate highly with actual blood ketones, because it is based on a well researched formula developed by Dr. R. T. Woodyatt who tested and verified it in his successful efforts to cure epilepsy with ketogenic diets. Other calculators add protein and carbs together in a ratio against fat, but carbs and protein do not contribute equally to the degree of anti-ketosis. This is why the original Woodyatt formula is the only accurate measure of the relative contribution of carbs and protein to the amount of ketosis.
Instructions on using KetoCalc you can find in the app’s menu eliminate the room for failure through a simple 4 step process which does not only ensure ketosis but also ensures that one avoids the three pitfalls of weight loss on a ketogenic diet (in the case weight loss is desired and not only ketosis for its therapeutic benefits). Playing with KetoCalc even a few times is the best way to learn what a real ketogenic meal looks like - at a one time cost less than that of a box of ketostix.
Why KetoCalc is Essential for Success With a Ketogenic Diet?
1 - Pre-plan Your Meals to Ensure Ketosis
Urine ketosticks are known to yield notoriously inaccurate results in addition to the way using urine or blood tests can determine the amount of blood ketones only after your meals. Ketocalc can work together with any other macronutrient counter app to let you find out and enter your macronutrients to calculate your ketogenic ratio per meal or on a daily basis.
2 - Remain In Ketosis Even If You Slip
Few people know that even if one eats too many carbohydrates at a meal, it is still possible to maintain ketosis if one eats a larger amount of fat. This may add up to too many calories to let one lose weight for that day (too many calories from even low carb sources can prevent weight loss as has been determined), however, one may retain the health benefits of maintaining ketosis. By remaining in ketosis, one can also start losing weight again sooner as one maintains the body’s fat burning adaptation. Otherwise, even going out of ketosis occasionally, according to researcher Dr. Stephen Phinney, requires another three week adaptation period. In addition to helping one remain in ketosis, the calculator also gives the total number of calories from one’s meals so one can adjust the amount of macronutrients to both maintain ketosis and a desired calorie level optimal for weight loss (if weight loss is desired).
3 - Avoid the 3 Pitfalls of Weight Loss on a Low Carb Diet
Many people who use low carb diets to lose weight have found that after a period on what they thought was a ketogenic diet, they stalled or even re-gained weight. As you use KetoCalc, following our simple 4 step process explained in the instructions ensures that you avoid the following three pitfalls which can prevent weight loss:
- Too much protein even from low carb sources
- Too many calories even from low carb sources
- Too little fat which prevents ketosis
The app works totally offline, works very fast due to its native programming language and includes no advertisements or irritating pop-ups unlike most frustrating apps on the market which are free.
