Ketogenic Diet For Beginners – Review

If you are thinking of starting a Ketogenic Diet then the Ketogenic Diet For Beginners by Jennifer Stone may be the book you are looking for.

It begins with a very comprehensive explanation of the ketogenic diet and how it can help you. Ketogenic Diet For Beginners spells out the ingredients you should keep an eye on. You will learn what to go for, what not to go for, even a seven-day plan. The plan spells out what protein carbs fat and calories you should choose for your daily intake.

Each of the recipes gives you the servings Prep time, Cook time, and even the nutritional information for calories, fat, carbohydrates, and protein which is something I particularly like about a good cookbook.

You Won’t Have To Feel Deprived

All of the recipes fall well within the target guidelines for the ketogenic diet, but most of the recipes look like they could be in almost any cookbook. The glamorous apple flatbread, for instance, looks particularly decadent. I don’t believe anybody following this diet, will feel deprived. There’s even a recipe for Popsicles that looks very luscious.

All in all, I think that anybody will enjoy this book not just people on a diet.

The recipe for Glamorous Apple Flatbread is included below. Enjoy!
