I received this review copy in exchange for an honest review.
I read a lot of health books. And most of them are good. I learn a few things and I put them on my shelf as good reference books. But every once in a while I read a special book – a book that changes my life. Two years ago I read a book like that Dr. Jason Fung’s book The Obesity Code. And this year 2018 I read another book like this- Keto By Maria and Craig Emmerich.
The keto diet has become very popular but there is a lot of misinformation out there about the keto diet and what it is. The Emmerich’s have eaten keto for years and really understand the ins and out of what eating this way means. They are great examples of how keto can be a very healthy diet and be really life changing.
The book sets out to explain, first how our bodies work and how disease disrupts our bodies. Then from there the keto diet is explained and set into context of how it makes a difference in the way our bodies work. How keto can help various diseases is one significant chapter. Another is common mistakes of keto (one of my favorite chapters). Another very significant chapter is how exercise and the keto diet work together And there is even a chapter on fasting, which is near and dear to my heart.
This book is easy to read and the explanations are simple and clear. I love the way they put the facts together to make a clear picture of the value of the keto diet. They dismantle the myths one by one in a way that makes so much sense. If you are reluctant to try the keto diet or wonder if it is for you, then give this book a read. By the time you finish you will have a much clearer picture of the benefit to be derived for your body.
Maria Emmerich also has a number of wonderful cookbooks. I own and have reviewed Keto Comfort Foods. This is a cookbook I use often in my home. I also have Easy Dairy Free Ketogenic Recipes, which I am just beginning to use. I can tell you any of her recipes are worth putting the effort into to cook. And once you see her cookbooks you realize that eating a ketogenic diet is not one of deprivation but instead one of satisfaction, great flavors, and good health.
Keto is a book I will read and reread and come back to for reference for myself and clients that I coach. If you have ever considered the keto diet or if you are already eating low carb and want to understand it more, this book is for you. Or if you want to know if it can help you in your health struggles then I recommend you take the time to read Keto and add it to your library too.
