My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy from the publisher. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I’m always looking for a good weight loss diet that’s healthy. I keep hearing about the keto diet, I’ve read a couple of books about it, but I’m still not totally convinced that it’s a healthy diet, especially if a person “cheats” on occasion and ends up in and out of ketosis. So, this diet will be a discussion with my doctor when I go for a check up in a couple of weeks.

If I decide to do the keto diet, this will definitely be a resource I will keep on hand. Not only does it have several recipes that I’ll try even if I don’t go on the diet, it explains what foods and tools are needed to be successful. It’s a diet that requires a commitment as well as a few foods that I’ve never purchased before.

At the beginning of Keto in 30 Minutes, it explains the diet, the science behind it, and the right and wrong foods to eat and how to keep yourself in ketosis. Each recipe has the nutrition information needed and is marked Vegetarian, Nut Free, Gluten Free, Diary Free, and/or Paleo. At the end of the book, there is advice for eating out, a glossary, indexes, helpful apps, and a conversion chart. What else could you need?

Keto in 30 Minutes is a good resource for the keto diet. The title is a little misleading because it would take some time and money to prepare to start the diet, but once you’re prepared, it should be less time-consuming.

Book Review: The Big Keto Desserts Book by Ellen Branson

The Keto Diet is a common trend nowadays. We have a good awareness about keto trends. It is a diet that contains a good amount of fats and some proteins as well. However, it is low in carbohydrates. Keto desserts are made sugar-free, and this is done by using sugar substitutes.
If you eat keto desserts, then your body will have a lesser amount of sugars floating in blood. Lower blood glucose levels will eventually lead to a lower production of insulin.




My Review

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

I read this book not because I’m interested in the Keto Diet but because I’m a diabetic and was interested in the sugar-free recipes. All of these recipes are sugar-free and use other sweeteners. One of those, erythritol, causes no alteration in blood sugar levels. Although some of these recipes are very high in fat, some such as the different flavored Fat Bombs (chocolate, cookie dough, etc.) aren’t too bad.

If you’re on the Keto Diet, this is a great book to use for when you want something sweet. The best thing I learned was the different sweeteners that can be used as an alternative to sugar.
