I am not endorsing this diet. I have not tried this diet. 

A good friend of mine went Keto and lost over 100 lbs. I was so happy for her! We talked about it for a while, and I said it might be something I'd check into. Less than three days later I received this book in the mail from my friend.

This cookbook is done in three parts which are, The Ketogenic Lifestyle, The 14-Day Meal Plan, and The Recipes. The Recipes part of the book is of course broken down to different categories. Sadly, it’s at the beginning of each of these categories that you’ll see the only photos in the book. I prefer seeing a photo of each meal. I guess it’s more cost effective for the author and/or publisher to do less pictures. Ah well. Also included are tips to help you a bit more through the Keto world

I have to say, I hate diets, and I'm a finicky eater (Yes, overweight people can be finicky eaters), but since this book was a gift, I wanted to give it a read.  I think with a few tweaks of my own, I could enjoy a lot of these recipes. Some of the recipes included are . . . Peanut Butter Cup Smoothie, Bacon-Artichoke Omelet, Smoked Salmon Fat Bombs, Crispy Parmesan Crackers, Herb Butter Scallops, Stuffed Chicken Breasts, Roasted Pork Loin with Grainy Mustard Sauce, Cheeseburger Casserole, Portobello Mushroom Pizza, Golden Rosti, Almond Butter Fudge, Raspberry Cheesecake, Hollandaise, Traditional Caesar Dressing, and more!

I haven’t started a Keto diet, but I’m a little less intimidated that that I’ve read THE COMPLETE

  1. I have since lost another 70 pounds. I was huge and still have a way to go but my diabetes is controlled without medication. I'm a believer.

    1. That's wonderful! Another 70? Wow! What is your total loss now? I recently found out that I am pre-diabetic. It's time for me to take things a bit more seriously.
