Hello there, my name is Jon. In this introduction post I want to explain what this site is about just so our expectations are in sync :)

I'm 39yo, male and I live in Asia - traveling between Singapore, Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia regularly. I've been on the keto diet for a year. I've lost a lot of weight, and feel very happy with how my body has transformed.

As my journey with keto progressed, I noticed there wasn't many keto websites out there with an Asia focus, so I thought I'd start my own! Welcome to Far East Keto!

At the same time however, this isn't my full time job and I'm not earning any money from this. This is just me sharing my keto journey in more detail, which will hopefully help some people along the way.

I'm an entrepreneur and run a software company - so I admit, I have some cool ideas of what Far East Keto could possibly turn into one day, but for now I just want to keep things simple. Honestly, I have no idea if people will be interested in this content. So I'm going to set a goal / limit for this first phase.

Phase 1

I have about 20 or so articles about keto in Asia in my head that I feel I can write / make a video about right now. So that's the plan - Phase 1 of this site will just be 20 articles about keto in Asia.

That's it! I don't know if this will take me weeks, months or years… or if anyone will find it interesting… but if you don't try you'll never know!

I hope you find my future articles useful in some way. The most important thing you can do now is subscribe to the mailing list to get notified when there are new articles, and remember to share the articles with friends if you find them interesting!

I'll try to quantify whether or not this site is a good idea with another goal. If I can reach 5000 mailing list subscribers by the time I finish the 20 posts, I'll take Far East Keto into Phase 2 :)
