Thanks James for this research. I tend to whine about meat & veg being more expensive than a "regular" WOE. Nice to be proven wrong!

While I've never put pen to paper, I agree!
Add in the facts that since you're eating less because of your satiety factor AND your health is better....yup, is is indeed less expensive!

Ketones make everything better.
Better sleep. Better mornings. Better energy.
Better fat loss. Better strength. Better mood.

For years I've had the belief the eating Keto was expensive. Now I'm not sure. So this base post is s work in progress.

Not worrying about quality of food, or what you need for good heatlth, but just looking at the shortest term goal of all, and that is getting enough calories for the day.

Secondly is the cost of those calories. So I'm going to compare foods by cost in cents, per calorie. So a lower number is better the better deal. Prices are in Canadian cents, for cost of things in my home city.

Cooked ground beef (1.1)
Chicken breast (1.1)
Weiners (1.9)

Cooked pasta (1.1)
Bread (1.1)

Canola oil (0.05)
Peanut butter (0.7)

Cheddar cheese (0.4)

Apples (0.4)
Banana (0.2)
Blueberries (2.7)
Strawberries (3.1)
Blackberries (3.7)

Veggies still coming.
Broccoli (2.6)
Carrots (0.6)
Cauliflower (1.5)
Mushrooms (3.8)

Surprise number one, meat is not expensive compared to wheat based things like bread and pasta. I thought it would be.
