During the past two months I’ve found new-to-me resources for information, support and recipes supporting a keto way of eating. I started with blogs and Facebook groups which led me to podcasts and Youtube channels.
Normally, I had little to do with Youtube other than when researching travel destinations and cruise excursions. Seeing it through others’ lenses helps a lot in planning those short port days. Now I’m on Youtube everyday watching my favorite channels.
Some channels I’ve dropped because it seemed like the primary goal is to sell products or they might follow a version of keto that’s not aligned with my approach. So with that in mind, here’s the top five keto channels in my subscription list in no particular order.
Dr. Berry is a board certified family practice provider that shares medical information relevant to a ketogenic diet in words any layperson can understand. His straightforward, practical approach appeals to me.
He’s not selling any products (other than his book, Lies My Doctor Told Me, that I highly recommend. You can get it free if you have Kindle Unlimited.
Keto WhiteBoard is a fairly new channel created by Jimmy Moore. Jimmy has been podcasting for 12 years sharing information related to a high fat, low carb way of eating. He started this channel as a way to present keto concepts in brief, easy to understand visual format.
This channel is particularly useful to people considering or new to the ketogenic diet. It’s also a great resource for friends and family members who question the diet.
Keto Connect is a young couple, Matt and Megha, producing content online in multiple mediums including Youtube, blog posts and podcasts. I find them engaging, endearing and love their tell it like it is approach.
Their videos are not the same old “this is what I ate today” videos that many channels publish. (Don’t get me wrong those have a place but I appreciate the change-up.) My favorite ones are the honest product reviews which help me decide what products I want to try.
They’ve grown their following to the point that KetoConnect and related opportunities is now their full time jobs. I bought their recent cookbook, Keto Made Easy, and will be making some of the deliciously simple recipes soon.
This channel is hosted by a self-proclaimed weird dad, Aaron, who has lost more than 60 pounds with a keto diet. A.D. Keto includes a lot of product reviews, giveaways, recipes and updates.
I’m an even bigger fan of the videos with Aaron and his lovely wife Sara who’s recently transitioned to keto from Weight Watchers. As a former Weight Watcher member (8 or 9 times but who’s counting), it’s very relatable.
Christina from Ireland hosts this channel where she talks about Keto from a woman’s perspective. She’s lost over 100 pounds since transitioning to this way of eating.
Most of her videos are informational although there’s the occasional recipe. I particularly enjoy the traveling while keto recaps which gives me ideas on how to address this challenge. Also, I love her Irish lilt!
Bonus Youtube Channel
I wanted to throw in this last one, Cooking Keto with Kristie, because it’s such a great resource for recipes. The only reason it isn’t in my top five is that Kristie doesn’t post videos on a regular schedule. Kristie Sullivan has authored several keto cookbooks including the favorite one on my shelf: Keto Living Day by Day. She also collaborates with Diet Doctor and can be seen cooking on many of that site’s videos.
