Hacking the Cost of a Ketogenic Diet
Today I analyzed my grocery spending in 2012 and found that I saved about $90 a month on groceries during my 2 month Ketosis experiment. Not bad considering I also lost 12 lbs!
I use Mint.com to track all my expenses – it aggregates every charge on my credit cards into one place. Since I almost only every buy food with credit cards, it’s pretty easy to track my food expenditure over time. I made this chart using an export from Mint.
These numbers certainly aren’t perfect. I ate low-carb or very moderate carb for other periods in 2012. I’ll try and update this post with a total food expenditure cost analysis next.
I was inspired to write this post by this post on the Bulletproof Executive Blog: Hacking the Cost of the Bulletproof Diet.
Also, thanks to Jimmy Moore for linking my blog this week!
