Weekend at Keto Symposium '22
NYC is an epicenter of plant-based initiatives. It was one of the first cities to adopt Meatless Mondays, and is now pushing its plant-based agenda even further. NYC mandated vegan meals every Friday for all children in public schools. After the untimely death of Bob Atkins, MD in the early 2000s, the NYC keto & metabolic health scene has been fairly quiet, so we were excited to connect with a like-minded Community, in-person, and to learn more about this healthy lifestyle.
Speakers also included big names like Nina Teicholz, who talked about the various influences and agendas that have found themselves intertwined in our nutritional policy. She emphasized the lack of scientific rigor when it came to incorporating the hundreds of studies on low carb nutrition into the policies of our dietary guidelines. Cynthia Thurlow, talked about the benefits of fasting and other lifestyle interventions.
Temple Stewart, better known as @The.Ketogenic.Nutritionist spoke about reversing PCOS with a low carb and ketogenic diet. She was motivated to help women after successfully reversing her own PCOS and losing 40 pounds.
Dr. Tro Kalayjian gave a powerful speech on Food Addiction highlighting the needs to recognize binge-eating and food addiction prior to starting a nutrition program.
Dorian Greenow, also known as Mister Mojo, gave a riveting talk about the various ways to measure ketones, including the pros, cons, and costs. He spoke about the future of metabolic treatments and the need for multi-disciplinary approaches in healthcare.
You can learn more about the complete lineup of speakers by clicking their names or visiting the Keto Symposium website.
We also connected with Dr. Robert Kiltz whose high energy was contagious. He prepared keto ice cream for the attendees which paired perfectly with our mini chocolate cupcakes made using the Chocolate Cake Mix. Dr. Kiltz is a fertility doctor who believes "Through the power of positive thinking, changes to diet, and a nurturing attitude toward overall health, you can achieve what you envision and desire most."
In between speaker sessions, we shared our low-carb baking mixes with the attendees and speakers! It was nice for our business to be a part of such an amazing event, in our home-town, with keto-famous professionals! We were proud to be able to introduce our low-carb baking mixes to a new audience and in turn hope they will take it back to their communities.
Our mission at ROSETTE’S is to empower people to sustain a low-carb, ketogenic lifestyle with versatile baking mixes that can (re)create all the foods people crave.

Nice meeting you Rossete, Mayra from 🇲🇽 Mexico, and a very nice description of the symposium, thanks for making my bday extra special.
When we started our business Whole Well-Being 16-8 our journey was much in the same as Rosette’s Mix. I was struggling with diabetes and a whole host of other medical issues like Tro. I decided that low carb, no sugar, and fasting was right for me. With the support from my wife who is a cardiac icu nurse who loves to do research on our healthy life style. I have lost 137 lbs reversing my diabetes, the starts of diabetic retinopathy, sleep apnea, and afib. So wanting to help others I went back to school at 49 and graduated and opened my business. Helping others like me and people struggling is our goal! Rosette’ Mix has some fantastic products, I highly recommend all of the products the produce and recommend to my clients, friends and family as alternatives to processed foods as they are healthy and taste great. Rosette’s mission is just like ours at Whole Well-Being 16-8. I look forward to continuing to help promote there business on my Website, Facebook and Instagram pages. The sisters are awesome people and both my wife and I enjoy supporting local companies. Thank-you for all you do!!
