The Keto Diet – Book Review + a giveaway for you!

Leanne Vogel is a holistic nutritionist, host of one of the top 10 health & fitness podcasts and largest keto resource on YouTube, creator of and author of The Keto Diet.

Ketosis is a metabolic state in which you’re predominately burning stored fat for fuel and converting fat into ketones to be used by the cells. Please see our earlier article on nutritional ketosis here.

During her own journey with Keto, Leanne found that the standard ketogenic approach did not work for her and set about adapting the principles to create a keto diet that felt right for her, her body and her health.The Keto Diet is a fabulous resource which you will refer to time and time again. It helps you find an approach that works for you and how to maintain a state of fat burning without guilt or restriction.

The Highlights

  • Over 215 pages of information on the keto diet, how to eat keto and strategies for keto meal preparation.
  • Five different 28-day keto meal plans adjusted to suit you.
  • More than 125 wholefood ketogenic recipes, many of which are dairy and gluten free; fodmap and vegan friendly. Some of our favourites so far are:
    • Bacon-Wrapped Mini Meatloaves
    • Chilli-Stuffed Avocados
    • Roasted Cajun Broccoli
    • Keto Milkshake

You can catch up on our recent chat with Leanne on The Real Food Reel where we talk all things keto. Grab your copy of The Keto Diet here.
