Eating chocolate & sweet treats & losing weight..? THIS IS KETO! Help today by supporting Keep it Keto, the low carb lifestyle company!

Who am I?

Hello, I am Rhys and I am the founder of Keep It Keto (https://www.keepitketo.co.uk/), an online food service (launch date Nov 2021) dedicated to making finding sweet keto treats convenient. 

I have been an avid follower of the health benefits of keto since 2019, due to rehabilitating a now lifelong disability from a motorbike accident that left me crippled physically, mentally and financially. Keto has been a godsend to my rehabilitation and lifestyle. I wish to share my knowledge and turn it into my new career path in November!

But what is keto?

Keto refers to the high fat, low carb lifestyle, utilising fat (ketones & fatty acids) as a cleaner efficient fuel for the body over glucose (which is a comparatively 'dirty fuel'). Carbohydrates, mainly sugars, elevate blood glucose, which can cause long-term weight gain and a myriad of health problems.

Eating high fat, low carb however incudes ketosis (bodyfat burning) and it is responsible for fat loss, improved muscle performance and insulin resistance.

Eating fat doesn't equal storing fat! Yet the myth remains and it is hard to find low carb sweet treats.

So... is it possible to create ethically single-sourced chocolate that is only 5 net carbs per 100 grams? Cookies less than 3gs net carbs? Millionaire shortbreads less than 2g? 

YES IT'S TRUE!

Where is the Business at?

With my current budget from selling to people from various walks of life, I have:

  • Since 2020 - Experimented with various recipes to formulate the best tasting, lowest carbs versions of sweet favourites. Sold various keto bundles.
  • Easter 2021 - Built the website and established links to the food industry
  • September 2021 - Gained a kitchen space from which to operate at a beautiful farm barn in Northallerton

Why do I need to crowd fund?

After a bad motorbike accident, legal battle and losing my job in 2020, I've sought many ways to secure investment. Crowdfunding seems logical! I wish to make keto imitation snacks convenient and as tasty as the originals. I need investment to fulfil our pre-orders and take our next step into production. Here's what me and Keep it Keto would spend the Crowdfunding money on:

  • Kitchen equipment and machinery
  • Packaging design & production 
  • Buying bulk ingredients to fulfil our first orders 
  • PR/Marketing
  • Some new trainers for me!
  • Market stalls
