    Hi
    Really need to kick start my eating ways.
    Has anyone had a look at this book? Is it worth it?
    If not can you recommend something else, needs to be family friendly
    Thank you x

    I found that most cookbooks are too high in carbs for me. I get loads of information from the internet, just put keto in the search.

    I found a good book, I will try and find a link.

    A Pinch of Nom books. Easy and delicious and you can substitute carbs!

    I bought this book and apart from the title (which I dislike), the recipes are fabulous and the book is a great read.

    It is worth looking at the reviews on Amazon for this book - pretty bad!

    I was soooo disappointed. I like the Hairy Dieters but this book is based around low fat and low calorie. There’s a pretty dismissive mention of low carb and that’s it. Bit old fashioned really. I really like Sarah Flowers sugar free books in which she gives low carb options. Justine Pattison’s books ‘xxxxx without the calories aren’t low carb but they have the nutritional values in the back of the book and most are easy to adapt. Jamie’s more recent books also have nutritional values of the recipes including the carb count, which I find useful. Annie Bell’s low carb revolution is also good.
