    This review is from: The Complete Ketogenic Diet for Beginners: Your Essential Guide to Living the Keto Lifestyle (Paperback)
    This book is split into 3 parts: The Ketogenic Lifestyle, The 14-day Meal Plan, and the recipes. Before this book, I really didn’t fully understand what a Ketogenic Diet was. Chapter 1 defines it for me in 4 words, Low-Carb, High-Fat. This diet promotes fresh whole foods and healthy fats & oils, and cuts out processed, chemically treated foods. It also tells you that when you start a Keto Diet, you’ll most likely experience the Keto-Flu!
    Chapter 2 – Go Keto in 5 steps. 1-clean out your pantry. Egads! No dates or peas, 2 of my favorites! 2-Go shopping and stock up on the basics- water, coffee, tea, spices, herbs, non-sugar sweeteners, lemon & lime juice, mayo, mustard, pesto, sriracha, broths, pickled foods, nuts & seeds, meats, eggs, wild caught fish, nonstarchy veggies, berries, avocados, full fat dairy, avocado oil, olive oil, butter, lard, bacon fat. 3-set up your kitchen with a food scale, food processor, spiralizer, hand mixer, and cast iron pan. 4- plan your meals, and 5 -exercise!

    Part 2, the 14 day meal plan, not only gives you the meal outline for the week for breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, and dinner, but it gives you the nutritional breakdown of calories, fat, protein, carbs, fiber & net carbs, it then gives you what page to find the recipe on, THEN it gives you a weekly shopping list! Bonus!

    When I decided to start ketogenics I bought a general book plus three cookbooks. This book was the smallest of the three cookbooks but easily the most useful.

    Ramos includes basic ketogenics information at the front of the book and tips for eating away from home at the end. In between is a lot of helpful information.

    The book contains a two week menu for beginners. (Face it, there’s a 90% chance you won’t follow it to the letter, but it does help set your thinking in the right direction.) For each individual week there’s a shopping list which, by itself, will help you adjust your kitchen quite a bit. There are tips on the best sweeteners (Swerve over Splenda), the oils you’ll need, produce, canned and bottled items, pantry items, and meats. Something to consider as you go along is that some items, like almond and coconut flour are expensive items to stock up on, but you’ll use considerably less than non-keto recipes will use for regular flour. Do what you can afford. Just know that there are some must-have staples like coconut oil and olive oil.

    The recipes themselves are divided into smoothies and breakfasts, appetizers and snacks, fish and poultry, meats, veggies and sides, desserts, and staples. Each individual recipe gives an overall “keto quotient” (how close it fits the idea balance of fats, carbs, and protein) as well as what each serving contains in calories and the fats, carbs, and protein for those servings. This makes life a lot easier if you are using a phone or tablet app to keep an eating record.

    I find myself in the kitchen a lot more, but that’s a good thing, especially since I’m gaining more energy and endurance from the diet. Since I live alone I’ve also invested in more plastic bags and containers. When I use one of the recipes I divide the finished product into the number of servings, eat one and bag the rest for the freezer or fridge.

    Recipes include items like homemade salad dressings and mayonnaise in a good keto balance. Since I’m eating a lot more salad this has been handy to have. I also thought I would miss sweets but I’ve been using the book to make snacks with stevia products. There are some chocolate recipes using cocoa powder and oils that help stifle any chocolate cravings. The oils often melt at a little above room temperature so I put chocolate pieces in bags in the freezer and granola in the fridge in snack bags.

    I have yet to find a recipe that didn’t turn out well, though my tastebuds like a little more salt. Better to add it in later because you can’t take it out once it’s cooked. The only bad turnout I had was my mistake, assuming that coconut flour would substitute for almond flour. It won’t.

    There’s a wide variety of tastes to help you learn your way through adapting the lifestyle to your tastes.
