Favourite self education finds please add to 😀

With so much to learn I was so grateful I found this forum with such generous time & experience gifts’. I have noticed a strong trend in many questions being repeated, I didn’t read enough before starting myself ~ but some people are really in the dark & I don’t think they will stick with it as a result. Along the lines of help but in a relaxed way I thought I would list some YouTube & Websites I found useful.

Please add to the thread if you can as the more information we have the more informed our choices can be. Thank you.

Pinterest ~ recipes once you can spot ingredients that you are avoiding as you need to pick through a bit....

  • pinterest is and great place for keto ideas . i just wanted to throw out there, people get turned off by the high fat, get scared or dont understand.. ofcourse   just like so many others i was  a low fat dieter. and struggle the entire time with some wins and some losses. low fat never solved alot of the  cravings  that ultimately is the ruin of our diets.  keto solves soooo many issues.  cravings, imflammation , pain, water retention, headaches, lack of energy,  cholesteral. these are the things that have been  resolved for me.   and hopefully  keto will help u too.   get on google and research the  myth about  cholesteral u will be surprised  at how our goverments  adopted the policy of low fat for its citizens and how the flood gates opened to produce foods  for us to buy aligning with the policy.   its interesting  to research why things changed and how  our bodies really process cholesteral.

  • Great resources! Thank you! I started my second week on Sat and have not strayed from the eating plan. I’m feeling very good. Have not missed any of my 2 mile daily walks either. My 2 labs keep me going with that! They love the walk. I read up for a couple weeks before I started, but I find it helpful to keep reading whatever I can.

  • Joanna cook book number one arrived.

    Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen by Carolyn Ketchum 

    beautifully laid out, excellent photographs, great index at the back that is easy to find what you are looking for. It only arrived today so I haven’t had time to cook anything but there’s lots I want to try. Boredom could set in if I don’t try different meals at least once in a while, this book will be a high on my go to list I can see already. Plus I have many of the ingredients already as they are spot on for Keto. Odd recipes include things I will substitute and I will give chat 24 a miss until I am at goal..... sweet treats! 


    Carolyn gives a brief but good explanation of the keto diet & lists many excellent sources for further information.
