In the past, I’ve shied away from the topic of following a Keto diet, even though my doctor advised me a few years ago to try to cut back on the carbs wherever possible. She knows darn well that I don’t have a sweet tooth – I have a starch tooth!
But recently, a good friend has been losing a remarkable amount of weight and regaining her health on a Keto diet. And so I decided to take a look at this cookbook. Low Carb Yum is clear and easy to read, and really does educate beginners like me. I finally understand exactly how this method works, thanks to the perfectly titled chapter “The Keto Diet & How It Works”. It’s the clearest explanation I’ve yet seen.
Author Lisa MarcAurele spends a good deal of time making sure we understand how to manage a Keto diet, how to stock our kitchens, and even how often to eat. By the time I got to the actual recipes, I felt confident and interested in what sort of Keto meals I could start experimenting with. I advise anyone interested in Keto dieting to read the beginning chapters carefully – don’t just jump directly to the recipes! Trust me on this one.
My thanks to author Lisa MarcAurele, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a digital advance review copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.
