Author: Martina Šlajerová
Stars: 4 stars
You can't a health nut without having hear of the Keto Diet. Everywhere you turn this is the diet everyone is talking this year. We have seen diets from South Beach to Aktins and they work for a time and than everyone starts to gain the weight back.
Why you ask?
To be honest no one should diet you should change your lifestyle towards eating.
I am not on the diet but I am interested in recipes that are healthy and ways to get more veggies in my kids diets.
The pictures are beautiful and it will have readers diving into making these amazing dishes.
The beginning of the book explains in detail the list of carbs that are in different items of food like veggies and fruits. It Explains how much you need each day to live this diet and why it is important to add fitness. Diet is 80 % of weight loss and fitness in only 20% (Depends on what diet book you are reading.)
There is a section in the book for vegetarian and dairy free. Which helps this mom out since all but one of the kids have dairy allergies (Yup very little dairy in this house)
While I live by the my words I don't diet I do understand changing your lifestyle and how to eat to better your health. If you can stick to this diet I am sure there are wonderful out comes but remember be realize to what your, body, mind and lifestyle can do. This isn't a quick fix this is a life style choice.

I currently live in the UK. I hold a degree in Economics and worked in auditing, but I have always been passionate about nutrition and healthy living. I love food, science, photography and creating new recipes and I am a firm believer in low-carb living and regular exercise. As a science geek, I base my views on valid research and I have first-hand experience of what it is to be on a low-carb diet. Both are reflected on my blog, in my apps and cookbooks.
I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.
The irony was that, like so many other people, I used to follow what I believed to be a healthy,
That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
After we witnessed the incredible benefits of low-carb eating firsthand, my partner and I created KetoDiet, a
Since 2016, I've authored 5 low-carb & keto books to help people follow a healthy diet and to show them that this way of eating doesn't have to be complicated or boring.
When creating recipes for KetoDiet, I don't focus just on the carbohydrate content: you won't find any processed foods, unhealthy vegetable oils or artificial sweeteners. My recipes are all grain-free, sugar-free and gluten-free. Most of my recipes are paleo-friendly or include paleo-friendly alternatives. I always opt for grass-fed beef and butter, raw hormone-free dairy and healthy fats like coconut oil.
KetoDiet is not just about losing weight at any cost; it's about adopting a healthier lifestyle. My mission is to help you reach your goals, whether it's your dream weight or simply eating healthy food.
