The zucchini fries look absolutely amazing. Gonna have to try those when I get home.
I wanted to ask if you have ever tried the ketosis cookbook. I have seen so many reviews that say it is amazing but at the same time other reviews completely bash the program. For instannce this review http://simplefitnessproject.com/reviews/ketosis-cookbook/ advocates for the program but I just dont know if I trust it. Would you be able to give me your two cents on the program? Thanks!
Hard to say – I too have heard from both sides of the fence when it comes to keto. I think ultimately the major failing with keto, as with most diets, is that it isn’t really feasible to maintain long-term. Ultimately, you want to establish healthier habits that you can maintain for years to come, and that’s definitely not really doable with keto (nor with Whole30 really).
