Following a keto diet plan doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy food. In fact, following this type of diet plan should mean that you get to experiment with some fun new recipes. You will be surprised at the wide variety of foods that you can eat following keto. While you may have to give you a few things, like your favorite dessert, you will be able to eat very well. Plus, you have the benefit of feeling better and losing that unwanted weight.
At its core, a keto diet eliminates almost all of the carbohydrates from your diet. You replace these carbs with fats, fruits and vegetables. Keto helps re-train your body by burning fat for energy. By starving your body of carbs, your body will turn to stored fat for energy. This is where the weight loss comes from, plus the added health benefits that come from reduced weight.
You Can Eat Well On A Keto Diet
The biggest failing of most diet plans is that they are boring. The meals are bland and it seems like you are eating the same foods every day. Keto is different in that it allows you to eat a wide variety of foods. If you can change up your meals, you will stay more interested in your diet plan. Staying interested will keep you focused on your goal-long term weight loss.
Here are three keto diet cookbooks that we really like. Each is different but all three have easy to follow recipes. Plus, the meals are really good tasting!
Keto Diet CookBook For Beginners
This is a great cookbook for someone looking to get started on a keto diet. Yes, it has 550 recipes, which is probably more than one person needs. However, it has a huge variety of recipes. There are tons of well written and easy to follow recipes for almost every kind of cooking. The Keto Diet Cookbook For Beginners is a great keto book.
Southern Keto Cooking
Keto cooking with a regional take. We had a lot of fun with this cookbook. Southern cooking is one of our favorites and we were thrilled when this book was published. There are over 100 recipes to work with and all of them are very well written. The author even includes a shopping list, helping to take some of the mystery out of buying ingredients. Your family will love Southern Keto Cooking.
Keto Comfort Foods
Comfort foods are called comfort foods for a reason. We want them, we love them, we enjoy eating them. Too often, these types of foods are restricted on a diet and people crave them. Luckily, this cookbook shows you how to make your favorite comfort while staying true to your keto diet. Great recipes with great photos, this is a fun cookbook. Keto Comfort Foods should be on your bookshelf.
There are hundreds of cookbooks available that focus on the keto diet plan. These are three that we really like, but you can find others that are just as good. The goal is to find recipes that are keto friendly, that taste good and will help you stay focused on your weight loss goal.
