“Ketotarian” is a dietary guide book written by Dr. Will Cole, a functional medicine practitioner, and chef Colleen Christensen. The book introduces the concept of a ketotarian diet, which combines the principles of a ketogenic diet and a plant-based diet.
The book outlines the benefits of a ketogenic diet, which includes increased energy, improved mental clarity, and weight loss. However, it also highlights the drawbacks of a traditional ketogenic diet, which typically includes large amounts of animal products and processed foods. To address these issues, the authors introduce a ketotarian diet, which is based on a foundation of nutrient-dense, whole plant foods combined with healthy fats, such as avocado, nuts, and seeds, and moderate amounts of clean protein sources, such as eggs, dairy, and fermented soy products.
The book provides a comprehensive overview of the ketotarian diet, including a discussion of macronutrient ratios, food choices, and meal planning. It also includes more than 60 recipes designed to help readers implement the ketotarian diet into their daily lives.
The authors emphasize the importance of listening to your body, being mindful of your food choices, and incorporating regular physical activity into your routine to achieve optimal health. They also provide practical tips and advice for overcoming common challenges, such as overcoming sugar cravings and navigating social situations while following the diet.
In conclusion, “Ketotarian” is a comprehensive guidebook for anyone interested in incorporating the benefits of a ketogenic diet into a plant-based lifestyle. The book provides a unique and innovative approach to healthy eating and lifestyle that is easy to follow and sustain.
