Keto Proverbs

Putting keto wisdom in pithy poetic packets.

Make up your own or give credit to your muse.

“Control carbs
Prioritize protein
Fill with fat”

~Dr Benjamin Bikman.

Best quote of the day, anyone?

Carbs are for addicts who aren’t in recovery
I am in recovery.

(UsedToBeT2D) #3

Fat does not make you fat.


I state it as “Minimal carbs, adequate proteins, fats as needed (for satiety).”

Also, instead of the acronym CICO, I use CICK (Calories In Controlled by Keto), since keto does nothing on the “calories out” part of CICO.

I re-state the infamous thermodynamic equation in its mathematically equivalent form. This is CICO corrected for causality.

Energy stored + energy used = energy eaten

“Butter makes your pants fall off” ~Butter Bob Briggs

(Take time to smell the bacon) #7

A fool and his bacon are soon parted.


To me it’s “minimizing everything” (especially fat, I tend to overeat due to eating too much fat in my protein sources. added fat is truly minimized since ages but that’s not enough) but it doesn’t make a good saying or good general advice… :smiley:

When in doubt, bacon and eggs.

(Tim Cee) #10

You’ll look like prey if you eat that way.

(Tim Cee) #11

Where’s the beef?


Oh I got inspired… I tend to say this a lot since I tried carnivore (I did mostly vegetarian keto before, I like contrasts :D). It’s usually about the price of some plant food item.

“I could buy meat with that money!!!”

Binge keto live to fight another day.

You are not what you eat.
(You are what you fail to poop.)

(Tim Cee) #15

If all the world were fruit and grains
And all the springs were Coke
And all the meats were bread, plantains,
We’d all be sick and broke.


Brilliant, will adopt.
