My tries with KETO weren’t really successful so far (I got the WORST migraine ever from trying to go KETO), but I do really want to try it.
So - when it was on sale I bought it, because I know other work from Diane and I know she is a real nutrition professional who knows what she is talking about.
I am so glad I did!
First of all, she really explains what KETO is and means, and who should do it and how. This is no “one approach fits all” approach, in the way like “when I could, you can do too”, but differentiated approaches for different kind of conditions, life styles and approaches
Second, I think the absolute game changer is her approach to EASE into KETO - to not go full blown KETO with a snap of your fingers (chapter 6). This book also includes protocols to help you keep track - different protocols for the first to week (ease into KETO) and for the “real” KETO phase, for different amount of calories.
Third: even if you not decide to go KETO, the recipes in this book are amazing. I think I wasted a whole package of stick it notes to almost all of them - and I am a picky eater with picky eater kids, but I know they will love most of the recipes as well.
Also, often when I see people posting their KETO recipes- full of fat, meat, cheese, sweeteners, but with no veggie or fruit to seee for days - it made me wonder how this style of living could be healthy. All of Diane’s recipe include veggies (or fruits).
It is also a KETO approach that is closer to a “real food” or “paleo” approach, and it looks sustainable.
Lastly, even if you don’t want to go full blown KETO, just eat better or get healthier, you will learn a lot from this book - there is no way this book is going to be a vaste of money.
She makes a lifestyle, that can seem daunting, very user friendly and easy to follow. I am looking forward to a successful year following her suggestions.
I own both the Kindle and paper copy. As always the Kindle version can be hard to read when looking at charts. This issue has nothing to do with the author but a limitation of Kindle and electronic formats in general. I use the Kindle version when going to the grocery store so I don't have to write down what I need.
As you've probably seen there are many books on the Keto diet and each one I've read has helped to further my understanding to this way of eating. I thought I knew more than enough but was surprised at being only 21 pages in that I have actually learned quite a bit.
True to Diane's style there are plenty of mouth watering recipes, meal plans and tracker to track your food intake. There are tips for adjusting the diet to suit what is best for YOU. There are considerations for people with autoimmune diseases, neurological conditions, SIBO & IBS, etc.. It really is a wealth of information.
So if you are a looking to try Keto for the first time or you have been eating this way for quite awhile, I believe there's something for everyone in this book. This is a guide to doing Keto in a safe and sustainable way with real food.
