This book teaches you how to change your body from a sugar-burner to a fat burner, which is what you are when you are in ketosis. Ketosis is when your body no longer is using carbs as its fuel source but fat. Years ago I tried the Atkin's diet. It did work but I was focusing more on protein and less carbs but I did not get the importance of fat.
This book showed me that fat is integral for your success of achieving ketosis and proper fat-burning. The diet wants you to implement 60-80% FAT!! 20-35% Protein and 0-5% Carbs. I learned from this book that if you have more protein than fat then your body will then begin turning the excess protein into glucose will be similar to sugar-burning. So fat is key!
Guess what? I have been doing this plan and I am actually eating less!! Fat has more flavor and more calories. I no longer have jitters from high-carb intake that was resulting in crashes. My energy is up and I am excited because I don't feel like I am deprived! Once in a while I will get hungry and want to turn to a quick carb anything but have learned to have nuts, cheese, etc. ready at hand. I eat plenty of vegetables because there are plenty that have a low-glycemic index.
I have lost weight easily and without any hunger. I do not crave sugar that much anymore and if I do I have learned incredible replacement recipes that take care of it. My sister has diabetes and high blood pressure. She has been doing this similar plan and has improved all of her blood levels. She was so excited!
The foods are amazingly yummy. They have breakfast, lunch, desserts, smoothies, and sauces. I can go out to a restaurant and actually eat!!! I can order chicken or steak with cream sauces and butter.
Most of the recipes are quick and easy and because they have FAT they are delicious! There are so many recipes where you use Almond Flour and Coconut flour that you can eat things like sausage gravy and biscuits, pancakes, muffins, etc. I don't feel like I am missing anything with these options!
Here are some interesting things I have eaten and even adapted "my own" versions from:
Buttered Coffee!! I will put coconut oil, almond milk or coconut milk, and some xylitol or Swerve sweetener---When I have this I feel such a burst of energy!!
Peanut butter shake, chocolate covered nuts,
my adaptation of one recipe is lemon coconut chocolate cheesecake....this is so good and it does not taste "diet" at all!!
cinnamon muffins with cream cheese frosting
Eggs, cheese, bacon.....recipes with chicken, beef, fish, shrimp........it has it all!
This book's information has been a blessing to me. Its easy recipes have allowed me to immediately start this way of eating unlike some other books where you have to build up a huge food list before you can really begin.
I bought some ketosis testing strips here on Amazon which helps me track my ketosis. They show you when you are in ketosis and not and also show if you are in light ketosis or high ketosis because they have color variations. This helps me keep track.
Cause hate is a strong feeling for this book, I merely don't like it and I'll tell you why.
I bought this because of it's price and seemingly great reviews.
After purchasing this book and attempting 10 different recipes, I realized that most of the people who gave this book great reviews got it at either a discount price or free!?
It has A LOT of typographical errors, nearly NO pictures and whoever wrote this just didn't understand the concept of measurements and the way ingredients work.
I've been on the KETO diet for 3 months and while I LOVE the diet, In an attempt to find more ways to cook different meals, I set out to purchase cook books to assist my journey. Being on the keto diet is expensive for me cause I am buying better quality ingredients however, I've wasted a lot of them on this book.
I made the beef stroganoff (gross, watery mess and the cream cheese didn't even melt and blend very well into the sauce), lemon cheesecake (aka rubber cement! The recipe called for 1/3 cup of lemon JELLO! Not 1/3 of a box or 1/3 or Tablespoon - 1/3 CUP! Add that to 1 CUP of boiling water and yes, in a few hours, you've got the perfect recipe for cement. Should've used common sense!) Recipe after recipe let me down and wasted precious meat & ingredients! I've made a few of the fat bomb recipes successfully but they're not anything fancy that you can't find on say, pinterest.
DO not waste your time on this book that was clearly not thoroughly combed through by an editor or even spell check.
If you're thinking about doing KETO - DO IT! Just don't plan on this book assisting you on your journey. Cooking well takes skill, I know, but cooking keto friendly dishes takes some extra finesse and this book will only let you down cause clearly no one thought to MAKE the food they published!
