Only other one to add to the comprehensive list above is Keto Adapted by Maria Emmerich
I would include both of Phinney and Volek’s books-
The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living: https://www.amazon.com/Art-Science-Low-Carbohydrate-Living/dp/0983490708/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1482707219&sr=1-1&keywords=phinney+and+volek
The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Performance: https://www.amazon.com/Art-Science-Low-Carbohydrate-Performance/dp/0983490716/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1482707253&sr=1-2&keywords=phinney+and+volek
My first book was Keto Clarity. I think that’s a good simply written Keto book.
I forgot to add the Ketogenic Diet by Lyle McDonald. @amber mentioned it which reminded me. It was probably one of the first science-oriented and widely available books when it came out.
Formatting suggestion for your list to make it easier to read. Try putting the title in bold and putting a space between entries.
@admins - Is there a way to create resource list as a way to have a curated list of recommended reading? I apologize if it’s already out there and I missed it. This is a fabulous post, but it sure would be nice to have a permanent resource list that we could point folks to.
@sjbrouillard has a very good point. Honestly, most of the “Resources” subjects might be better served this way.
Maybe Wiki style?
I’m with you there! Changed my life!!!
ME too. So far I LOVE it! Altered versions of my 3 year old recipes in there too. /strut
That stuff gets around!
I think a couple helpful books are by Julia Ross the Mood Cure and the Diet Cure you can also find some good talks by her on YouTube and I also like Dr Eric Bergs talks on the ketogenic diet on YouTube he has been living keto for a number of years and he looks pretty healthy to me ,he definitely shows you the science,he helped convince me this was a good path to follow, along with the 2 keto dudes of course,I think they would both be great guests on the podcast maybe even invite them to Ketofest
Also forgot Dr.Mark Hyman Eat Fat Get Thin
Has anyone used the Fat Fast Cookbook? Thoughts?
Mark Hyman also has the blood sugar solution book and blood sugar solution cookbook
Yes to Keto Clarity - easy to understand and read.
I am not a science minded person - I like simple explanations - I found Good Calories Bad Calories overwhelming for my brain!!!
Also Christine Cronau books are very easy to understand.
Eat Bacon, Don’t Jog: Get Strong. Get Lean. No Bullshit.
- easy to read in small chunks (5 minutes on my walk from parking lot to work)
- inspired me to try harder at keto
- gives some easy to follow tips and exercises
Great title just found my new guru,two of my favorite things eating Bacon and not jogging
Maria Emmerich has a NEW BOOK out! Just a couple of days ago. I’ve already read through it. It is a very nice guide to get you into ketosis for the first 30 days. I like it because the recipes are simple. Also, it is mostly dairy-free, which is important for many ketonians.
30 Day Ketogenic Cleanse!
Thanks for the recommendation going to have to check this one out ,sounds like a very practical guide
I made the original post into a wiki, if anyone would like to add to it. I didn’t get all the suggestions in there.
