Norma’s Keto in a Coulee Progress & Reviews

Hello Week One!  So I thought I would also add some personal information to this review for all of you that might like to join me &/or follow me on my new Keto lifestyle.  It will be beneficial to me to help with accountability issues as well as keeping me motivated.  I have included two reviews below for the books that I am using while on this journey.  Please feel free to join me or send me some encouraging words!

The Keto Diet: The Complete Guide to a High-Fat Diet, with More Than 125 Delectable Recipes and 5 Meal Plans to Shed Weight, Heal Your Body, and Regain ConfidenceThe Keto Diet: The Complete Guide to a High-Fat Diet, with More Than 125 Delectable Recipes and 5 Meal Plans to Shed Weight, Heal Your Body, and Regain Confidence by Leanne Vogel

I absolutely love Leanne’s approach! This book is so much fun and interesting to read with lots of useful information. I don’t usually read cookbooks from cover to cover but the creative way that this cookbook is laid out I found so appealing and extremely motivational.

On a whim I picked this book up at Costco as I was really curious about the Keto diet and thought hmmm, I think I’m going to give this Keto lifestyle a try. I have been following this plan for six days now and I am thoroughly impressed with my progress so far and how helpful this book is. It is like a one-stop guide to all things Keto and I absolutely love and appreciate that the plan is totally customizable and tailored to my individual needs.

I found the book to be very informative, simple to follow and understand! And the author is Canadian which makes it a little easier knowing that the ingredients are easily accessible and where to purchase them. I was able to find most of the ingredients with no problem at all. Which is always a plus when following a healthy eating plan.

*** I haven’t tried too many recipes from this book yet as I am using this one as more of a reference guide and getting to know me Keto book.  But, I have tried the Rocket Fuel Latte where I can’t say I liked it too much but I was able to get it down without too much difficulty though.  I am not a coffee drinker so I am sure that definitely had something to do with it.  I am going to try a different variation tomorrow morning to see if I enjoy it a little more.  My mom is also following the Keto diet with me and she loves coffee and didn’t have any problem drinking it!

    1. Oh, that makes me so happy to hear that you are still loving it after a few months into the keto lifestyle. I have allowed and given myself permission that during the learning stages of going keto if I don’t do it exactly as plan it is all okay. I think that has really helped my mindset. I am so glad that you appreciated the book recommendations and you are so very welcome! Let me know how your progress is going as I’d love to hear from you again! 🙂

      1. We’re pretty rigid about it, got a blood monitor, and recently started paying attention to the calorie intake, too. Hubby has lost 20 lbs and I’ve lost 10. We have super energy and almost never feel hungry. Love it!
