Keto Diet Hacks 200 Shortcuts to Make the Keto Diet Fit Your Lifestyle


Keto Diet Hacks is a tutorial and tips guide for adjusting the ketogenic diet to readers' lifestyle rather than compromising lifestyle to become keto compliant. Released 15th Dec 2020 by Simon & Schuster on their Adams Media imprint, it's 224 pages and available in paperback, audio, and ebook formats.

This is a bare bones, information dense, accessible, and *useful* book of tips and tricks to make the keto lifestyle more relevant for most of us who struggle to maintain ketosis in our daily lives. The table of contents is specific, easy to understand and descriptive enough to make information easy to find (there's also a comprehensive index). The first chapter covers meal planning and prep, including shopping and pantry lists, tips for writing a weekly planning calendar, meal prep and shopping on the same day, and lots more. The second chapter includes a number of good tips/hacks to make shopping easier, more effective, and budget friendly. The third chapter was particularly good for me and included a lot of hints to make dining out less catastrophic (ALWAYS my downfall - always). Chapter four covers socializing and drinking situations. The following chapters provide readers with good solid tips on everything from dealing with hunger, maximizing macro-nutrients, curbing carb cravings (another huge problem for me), keto weight loss and management, lifestyle tips, and troubleshooting. 

The included tips and information are formatted in one to two page short entries and are written in very easy to understand language. They are numbered sequentially (1-200), and I couldn't personally think of a question or problem I've had with my own keto journey which wasn't touched on in these 200 tips. 

There is no photography included, but I didn't find it problematic. There are also no recipes included - that's not within the scope of the book.

This would make a good gift for a keto adherent friend, for library acquisitions, or for oneself. Four stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes
