This book was a disappointment As someone who been doing keto for almost 2 years I was excited to see a book with healthy recipes new ideas This book is not that The first 70% is all about the keto diet various reasons as to why it s healthy and the science behind it That s great but not what I wanted It honestly seemed like too much information and I m not sure who it would benefit I feel like a newcomer to the diet would be overwhelmed by it and a veteran of the diet probably "already knows most of it She makes the diet way complicated than it " knows most of it She makes the diet way complicated than it to be The recipes seem fine but nothing new or innovative I understand this is supposed to be a 16 day diet to power your body but it s no different than I eat every day except she promotes a meal replacement that she sells no thanks She also includes some recipes that I honestly uestion the carb count of mango which I love but 1 mango has 50 carbs and beans She also doesn t include any of the nutritional values for her recipes This book is a hard no for me A few pages of recipes way too much information no nutritional info and an over complicating of a simple diet isn t helpful Thank you NetGalley for this ARC in exchange for an honest review First off this has been a lifesaver during our shelter in place orders I have never cooked so many nights in a row until now I loved learning about what my body needs nutrition wise to be fueled including tons of add in foods like almond milk and other nut milks I went from hearing the word Keto as a buzz word to really understanding how this diet could help me in my weight management goals The step by step planner over the first 16 days will be super helpful and I am most looking forward to the improved sleep Thank you for this amazing tool Dr Cabeca has written a medical breakthrough that saved my life I was diabetic not sleeping having horrible hot flashes in constant pain and couldn t think I had blood tests done before and after trying her methodI tried her Keto Green 16 method for a period of 3 months After consistently eating this way I reversed my type 2 diabetes hot flashes disappeared my pain levels dramatically dropped I went from sleeping 3 hours a night to 7 monitored by my Fitbit and my brain fog lifted I lost 20lbs tooMy personal physician said whatever you are doing that is the lifestyle for youI have oy in my life once again and feel like I am myself once Highly recommend her books and her products Although I don t follow a keto diet I am a big believer in the benefits of it on weight loss and overall health Oh puh lease What a gimmick *there is no science behind why she is *is no science behind why she is a 16 day diet 16 key ingredient types 16 lifestyle practices and 16 minutes of exercise Is it a coincidence that these are all best practices or did the author Oeuvres de Ennius Quirinus Visconti, Vol. 3 just stick with 16 of everything because it is catchy I would say it s suspect I also do not choose to pay for books that are in essence advertisements for the author s line of supplements and courses DO NOT BUY Wish I could give it zero stars I so wanted to like this bookLike mentioned before by other reviewers it has a lot of medical info it was a large portion if the book and not needed Keto green 16 should have been laid out better From the recipes exercises to the medical info Intermittent fasting isn t for everyone and a big turn off to me It s basically the keto diet with greens and less protein and some fruit itust seems like a oyless diet No thanks I read this book a couple of months ago and thought I d reviewed it back then but I An innovative 16 day plan that combines the fat burning benefits of a ketogenic diet with the brain clearing and keto flu protection of alkaline food by the USA Today bestselling author of The Hormone Fix There is no uestion that keto eating is the biggest diet trend in years And it really works dieters often report super fast weight loss But they also complain about the rigidity of the diet as well as the flu like symptoms that often accompany this high fatlow carb way of life The solution Add alkaline foo. Ee that I haven t I really wanted to like this book A nutrition book that promises to help you *lose weight and reverse illness in ust 16 days Awesome And I liked the *weight and reverse illness in The Love of a King just 16 days Awesome And I liked the idea it combined green foods veggies with a keto diet instead ofust recommending fatty animal products It ended up not really being a good fit for me thoughThe premise of the diet is that you should combine a keto diet with an alkaline diet for best results and this will fix hormone levels that are the cause of health problems thyroid insulin estrogen and other hormones The 16 foods or food groups recommended are fish beef chicken dark leafy greens raw sprouts cabbage cruciferous vegetables garlic and other alliums MCT oil or coconut oil olive oil nuts Brazel almond hazelnut and pili avocado lemons and limes fermented foods sour kraut kimchi and pickled ginger bone broth and 3 fruits mango pineapple and papaya There are a few optional add in foods like spices vegetarian swaps for the meats and eggs You avoid dairy sugar other fruits and vegetables cured meats grains uices and so on She also offers a vegan list of 16 foods to eat These are mostly the same but use black soybeans white beans chickpeas and vegan aklaline brothIn addition you do 16 minutes of exercise a day especially HIIT exercise and practice intermittent fasting You are reuired to test your ketones and urinary pH every morning and to start the day with an alkaline drink that you make or purchase from her website She also recommends a lot of other powders and such that you can purchase from her website plus a lot of supplements vitamins minerals and herbs Not surprisingly she offers combinations of these supplements for sale on her website too She also recommends commonsense healthy practices like getting enough sleep drinking enough water and meditating among other positive self care practicesAfter 16 days on her plan you can repeat the cycle if you want to lose weight or move on to a modified diet with foods allowedThe second half of the book is recipes These include vegan recipes and ones with animal products Maddeningly no nutritional information is provided a huge gripe of mine for cookbooks but especially for health related cookbooks Many of the recipes call for her protein powders and supplementsThe end result for me is that I d go bankrupt buying all the test strips and supplements she says you need and I m not entirely convinced that 16 days of living this way will do what she promises I will take some of the advice regarding lifestyle changes healthy foods and exercise suggestions but won t be doing her 16 day programI read a digital ARC of this book for review Very detailed information about hormones and how they might not be functioning and the impact that can have on dietingThere is detailed information about the author s version of the keto diet but to me this was underwhelming and not true to Keto Don t get me wrong I have raved about other non conforming Keto books before I am not afraid to deviate or make my own way but this one was too heavily reliant on dietary supplements and shakes for results and seems of a twist on a liuid cleanse for part of the day which was not what I was looking for Also Keto is not an alkaline diet and I don t necessarily agree with combining the two together This book for me was kind of all over the place mixing liuid meal replacements supplements and alkaline cleanses with a bland meal If this twist sounds promising you may like this book It seems to be a rapid weight loss short term 16 day diet To me Keto is.

Of a lifestyle change but I can see that this may appeal to some who ust want some uick results Also I must say I could have lived without reading what porn does to testosterone levels and other things to correct it HARD PASS and I wasn t expecting that in a cookbook but to each there ownAll recipes are in the last 30 pages of 185 Mostly shakes the recipes all have minimal ingredients and would be fairly fast to prepare I received this book from NetGalley for an honest review While the overall idea behind the book is nice I did not really enjoy the options that were within it I wish there were flexible options In Keto Green 16 Dr Anna Cabeca presents her alkaline ketogenic diet and lifestyle plan for hormone balance and weight loss The initial plan lasts only 16 days although the author does recommend that you adopt her plan as a permanent lifestyle The diet uses only 16 key ingredient types with a maximum of 40 grams of carbohydrate per day The plan also recommends fasting for 16 hours per day exercising for 16 minutes a day and adding 16 positive lifestyle practices such as meditation and Seneca Falls and the Origins of the Women's Rights Movement Pivotal Moments in American History journalingThe first part of the book provides an explanation of how 13 *hormones affect mood energy and weight control I found this information very interesting but if youust want to know what *affect mood energy and weight control I found this information very interesting but if you ust want to know what eat it may seem overwhelming The author then discusses how she developed her Keto Green 16 protocol and provides some limited evidence regarding its safety and efficacy I found this section disappointing because many of the studies she cites involve very small numbers of patients and it s not clear how well the studies
Were Designed Nor Are The Full Resultsdesigned nor are the full results The author provides references in an appendix but the references aren t cited clearly in the textWhen the author described her diet plan she includes a vegan version of the plan She recommends many of her own protein powders and nutritional supplements but she also provides alternatives if you don t want to use her products I appreciated her efforts to make the plan accessible to a wide audience If you re someone who eats to live rather than living to eat you might do ok on this plan but I get a lot of pleasure from my meals and this plan looked like it would involve a lot of effort and would become boring uickly I might be able to tough it out for 16 days if I were desperate to lose weight but I can t see adopting this as a lifestyle And I ve been attempting intermittent fasting for months and am still not able to fast for 16 hours a day So far I have only tried one of the recipes provided The Mango Coconut Sorbet is easy to prepare and a refreshing dessert for someone on a restricted diet Some of the recipes looked very easy and some would be challenging but they did seem clearly writtenThe book seems to be aimed mostly at perimenopausal women but the plan could work for any age or gender One chapter is specifically for men I wish the author had spent a little bit time discussing possible contraindications although she does provide warnings for certain people who shouldn t try fastingIf you re curious about the ketogenic diet and intermittent fasting this is a good choice The author s keto diet might be difficult to implement but it looks much healthier than many other versions of keto I ve seen I think this plan would be a challenge to implement unless you have a lot of free time and motivation but if you follow the plan in its entirety you are very likely to lose weight I was provided an unproofed ARC through NetGalley that I volunteered to review.
