A new twist on keto: The fat-burning power of ketogenic eating meets the clean green benefits of a plant-centric plate

The keto craze is just getting warmed up. The ketogenic diet kick-starts your body’s metabolism so it burns fat, instead of sugar, as its primary fuel. But most ketogenic plans are meat- and dairy-heavy, creating a host of other problems, especially for those who prefer plants at the center of the plate. Dr. Will Cole comes to the rescue with Ketotarian, which has all the fat-burning benefits without the antibiotics and hormones that are packed into most keto diets.

First developed for individuals suffering from seizures, keto diets have been shown to reduce inflammation and lower the risk of many chronic health problems including Alzheimer’s and some cancers. Adding a plant-based twist, Ketotarian includes more than 75 recipes that are vegetarian, vegan, or pescatarian, offering a range of delicious and healthy choices for achieving weight loss, renewed health, robust energy, and better brain function.

Packed with expert tips, tricks, and advice for going–and staying–Ketotarian, including managing macronutrients, balancing electrolytes, and finding your carb sweet spot, this best-of-both-worlds program is a game-changer for anyone who wants to tame inflammation and achieve peak physical and mental performance. Let the Ketotarian revolution begin!

Sincerely Recommended Now, after few weeks since I read the book and prepared around 10 recipes, I wanted to add some details about favorite recipes at the end of the review to share with you. But before that, the review continues to be positive.The diet plan proposed by Dr. Will Cole pleases both vegans and omnivorous who enjoy eggs, fish, and shellfish. Taken as a whole, it is a clear, engaging, and updated reading. First half of the book is dedicated to the principles of the diet, whereas the second part contains many recipes and a meal plan.The book delivers a key promise. That is, the ketotarian way of eating brings together healthy plant-based fats, clean protein, and the rich, vibrant colors of nutrient-dense vegetables to reach the benefits of a low-carb high-fat diet in a realistic way. It is, in fact, a plan focused on two major lifestyles combined: taking the best of ketogenic and vegan diets to create an easy-to-follow plan in order to nourish our microbiome…

Recipes High in Net Carbs The book is very well laid out and I really enjoyed reading about Dr. Cole’s health journey. It all made perfect sense when considering the vegan lifestyle isn’t for everyone and the dangers of having a one size fits all mentality. I do a lot of research or diets and specifically healthy eating. This book really hits the mark in terms of being easy to read and I am in agreement in the idea of eating whole foods and healthy meat products in limited amounts. I was disappointed in the high carbohydrate (which is actually higher than net carbs that are listed in the book). It would have been nice to list out the fiber content (total carbs can be back calculated with the fiber… but alas no fiber was listed only the protein, net carbs and fat so not easy to plug into an app to track your macros) as he mentions how important fiber is on a keto diet. Sadly even the meal plans suggest 40-60g NC which in my opinion is way too high to loose weight with this plan or for a lot of people to…

Exactly what I needed!!!! I was already following a keto lifestyle. But was recently told by a holistic dr that some of the issues I was still having with bloat and weight was because of the level of animal protein I had in my body. It was causing my blood sugar to be elevated and my stomach was not producing enough acids to breakdown food. So it was suggested that I go vegetarian and supplement with stomach enzymes and HCL. I have definitely noticed a difference changing to a keto/vegetarian diet but struggle with variety in my meals. I am definitely not a “eat tthe same thing everyday” kind of person. I need variety! And I need simplicity, easy recipes that have my micros counted out for me already. This book does that! Great yummy, easy recipes, with ingredients that are easy to find at the local store. And the macros are listed there with every recipe so its easy to add it to the Cronomter App that is fantastic in keeping track of what you consume daily. Instapot recipes too! And a 4 week meal plan at the…
