The Best Keto Cookbooks Of 2019
The keto diet was designed by Dr. Russell Wilder in 1924 and emphasizes replacing carbs with healthy fats and protein. The drastic drop in your carb intake puts your body into a state of ketosis-a natural metabolic process that helps burn stored fat and accelerate weight loss.
Today the keto diet has taken the wellness world by storm. And the growing amount of research backing its varied health benefits together with the celebrity proponents of this diet (including Kourtney Kardashian, Adriana Lima and Halle Berry, to name a few) have further fueled the popularity of this low-carb eating plan.
Whether you've recently embraced the keto lifestyle or you're just looking for healthy recipe ideas to diversify your low-carb diet, these keto cookbooks are here to help:
