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!

    I’ve found that I’ve saved money just because I’m forced to cook more! Eating out always screws up my hard won ketones and I hate starting back at square one!
