Miriam and Chris Bair are the husband and wife team behind
Keto Chow. They have been married 17 years and have 6 children,
including a couple sets of twins.
Their first introduction to Keto was a passing reference from
a neurologist - that if they couldn't find
an anticonvulsant to help one of their
sons' epilepsy soon, their son would need to go on a
"ketogenic diet" - fortunately, he is doing extremely well
Chris started doing Keto 3 years ago this month to lose weight
and Miriam jumped on the bandwagon about a year and a half ago.
Keto Chow was created in January 2015 after Chris had a rather
rough time with Keto Flu while getting started doing Keto - the aim
was to make a nutritionally complete keto food that tastes good and
has all the electrolytes, vitamins, minerals, fiber, fat, and
protein you need to thrive on Keto - an "engineered staple
food" you could entirely live on if you wanted to.
Originally made for his own use, the recipe to make Keto Chow
was, and still is, available for all to use - "open source" if you
will. People wanted to be able to use Keto Chow without having to
buy all the powdered ingredients in bulk and get their kitchen
messy so Chris and Miriam started selling it pre-mixed on the web.
The operation outgrew their house and they now use a contract
manufacturer for all the mixing and packaging and ship out of a
warehouse near their home.
Currently, they're working on getting their children
doing Keto, or at least eliminating sugar from the house.
