Iris
~ THE CREATOR & FOUNDER OF KETO-TO-GO LLC. ~
EXECUTIVE CHEF

 Original Creator, Recipe and The Original-brand-new-products creator; and now, The Owner of “KETO-TO-GO LLC.”  Iris is also the initial tester of the “KETO-TO-GO” life-style recipes and will never include any recipe that she has not tried and lived on herself first. Even though her ultimate goal is to become 100% Vegan, she has (even with dairy allergies and sensitivities) tried and “lived on” every single item that is being promoted by KETO-TO-GO

Iris has a Master’s Degree from the Juilliard School of Music, is a composer, a writer and an inventor. Iris created the extremely popular event planning and entertainment company IGMC in 1989. During IGMC productions, Iris has worked on more than a hundred million dollars of corporate and social catered events. She is very familiar with all aspects of producing events and production in general and is a dynamo coordinator. (You can learn more about IGMC here: http://www.igmc.net.)

Iris created “KETO-TO-GO” when she became ill with no results-oriented help from a number of doctors. Iris found that The Ketogenic Diet was her solution.  She also came to learn that doing this diet properly can become an all-encompassing and full time job. Iris could NOT find one 4:1 Ketogenic Food option in any store or on line, nothing, anywhere! In addition, Iris accidentally (at first) created some imaginative new food options and combinations that were more than just tolerable, they were exceptionally yummy. Iris shared her Keto Yummies with friends who started demanding repeat meals. It is out of the deepest desire to be of service and lessen suffering in others wanting to try the Ketogenic Lifestyle that KETO-TO-GO was created.

Iris’ personal passion and motivation ~ Iris’ Dad died a horrible death from Pancreatic Cancer and pro-actively Iris believes that The Ketogenic Diet will reduce her chances of following in his footsteps since the studies by The Ketopet Sanctuary and Epigenix Foundation with healing dogs with Cancer has been so promising and even more promising the most recent medically supervised treatments of high-stage Cancer Patients in Turkey that had “miraculous” results of both remissions and improvements previously unseen within the medical community. (Look up: Dr. Abdul Kadir Slocum from the ChemoThermia Oncology Center in Turkey and their six year observations of advanced Cancer patients using Ketogenic Diets as part of their treatment schedules.) It is because of this and her belief that The Ketogenic Diet is prevention for her, that she has dived with passion into creating, building and sharing the KETO-TO-GO experience of truly yummy food combinations that make sticking to a Ketogenic Diet both easy and something to look forward to!

Iris’ continuing role with KETO-TO-GO is to be continually improving menu items and designing new food combinations, interacting with Doctors and Dieticians to continually be improving and advancing a health oriented objective to all participants and staying on top of the latest health findings to incorporate into the Yummies that KETO-TO-GO cooks up and makes available.   Iris looks forward to more advice from Medical Professionals to continue to improve and be the food sources that Ketogenic Dieters turn to for their sustenance.

Iris not only taste tests all products that come out of the kitchen, but she lives on them as well to test viability in staying in Ketosis while using the products and also testing how they feel in the body. No product gets released from KETO-TO-GO without first being in the company owner's regular diet for a period of time.

Most recently, Allen has been able to put Iris' concept and design of a KETOGENIC DIET analyzing Excel spreadsheet together that will automatically calculate the nutrients of each food in each recipe so that when Iris and Executive Chef Chemist Steve get into the kitchen with each recipe, they can finely tune each recipe down to the double fraction of a percentage of accuracy as to the KETOGENIC Ratios of each ingredient that is put into each KETO-TO-GO product!

In addition, Allen is able to put together Iris' other request for a recipe MENU CALCULATOR for dietitians and KETO-TO-GO Customers that will allow them to input which products they want to eat on any given day and this EXCEL SPREADSHEET CALCULATOR will help them to add up all the nutrients, net carbs, fat content and proteins to help the users stick to their recommended totals for each day.

These special additions to our processes are extremely exciting and put KETO-TO-GO at the forefront of technology within the KETOGENIC world of dieters! More is on the way soon!

Allen is another happy tester of KETO-TO-GO products as they get produced.
