My Review of “Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cooking” cookbook
This book is the first ketogenic cookbook I have purchased in hard cover. I have googled and found different keto recipes online but never purchased a full cookbook before. However I’m really glad I got this one and got it in hard copy form. I am overweight (to the point of obesity) and a type 2 diabetic with metabolic issues. I also have fibromyalgia and spinal disc degeneration and use a wheelchair most of the time. (so exercise is pretty much out except for swimming).
Before mid-December, 2016, I was injecting 182 units of insulin daily. Then I began my adventure with Intermittent Fasting (IF). Within 78 days of starting IF, I was down to injecting under 10 units of insulin a day and I had lost a lot of weight (from 260 to 227 pounds). I mostly practiced alternate day fasting and a few longer fasts (5 days is the longest fast I’ve done). Most of my fasts were from 24-48 hours with a few 72 hour ones.
On my eating days, I eat low carb high fat (LCHF). I try to keep my diet to a pretty low-carb, ketogenic style of eating. Here is a link to a nice article explaining the ketogenic way of eating. This way of eating has really helped my health, I have much less pain, my blood pressure is lower, my coloresterol is better and my weight is down a lot. See my previous post on my lab tests before and after I began IF.
