I just got it today, and have already read it! She breaks it all down so well, so it is so much easier to understand. In this book you get four different shopping lists for each individual week of menus she provides. Basically she plans the whole month out for you with tons of delicious sounding means. Breakfast lunch dinner AND snacks are covered! There's even a keto smoothie section which I was very happy to find!
There is a list of pantry staples to have while doing keto as well which was very helpful to me. Every recipe she has on the menu is provided along with extras. This book is 100% worth the money if you are doing keto! I've googled and joined groups and spent so much time looking things up about this online and was still having some issues but this book really helped break it down in the way I needed to understand.
I HIGHLY recommend this book!
The grocery list: One of the most annoying things about this book is the shopping list for instance, for week 1 I got everything on the list including the snacks at the bottom of the page. To my surprise most of the recipes for week one actually almost ALL of them had ingredients that were not on the list and I’m not exaggerating. I could not believe it when I went to start preparing my first day of food and found I didn’t have all the ingredients for the first couple of meals for the day! I had to literally go to each recipe for the entire week, find the actual recipe and write down items I hadn’t purchased from the list. I also feel like the recipes should have a single serving recipie and a multi serving recipie. This one mostly serves up to 4 which doesn’t really help me if I’m starting a meal plan that I’m following as it is on paper. Idk just kinda frustrated.
Super complicated and time consuming in my opinion. Lots of page flipping for one recipe as for instance you follow the recipe for Caesar salad then it sends you to another recipe for the Caesar dressing. Just hard when you are a a busy working mom.
I did find a few recipes I’ll try again but more like dinner on the weekend recipes when I have time.
I’ve attached pictures that show the shopping list, week one guide and then the second list I had to create to get the items that were not on the shopping list to support the recipes for week 1.
Excuse the writing/spelling errors on the board. My friends 7 year old daughter insisted on writing some of the words for me :)
The only reason I took away a star is for the recipes. I'm a single person with only myself to cook for. Most of the recipes make 4 servings. To make matters worse, I'd be spending minimum $300 on groceries each week if I followed the mail plan to a T. Even with my adaptation and trying to keep expenses low, I'm spending over $100 the first week or two. I'm hoping with some of the more expensive stuff like the different flours, extracts, and spices purchased, that some of my expenses will go down. In addition, if I made every meal for every day that the plan mentions, I'd be spending at least 2 hours a day cooking or my entire Sunday cooking like 12 meals. It's ludicrous for a busy single person with a job to be expected to do. It's where almost every diet plan falls down. On a positive side I wish someone would make me those meals because they do look delcious and the few I've cooked so far were really well done.
This has led to a lot of trial and error and not really following the meals plan at all. From the book, I picked 1-2 breakfasts, 1-2 smoothies, 1 crockpot-esque meal, and then used the snack section for inspiration. Then I went to the meat counter at my local grocery store (they have really good meat) and picked a bunch of meats that looked to not have any sugary carby marinades or breadings. I've been using Fitpal to calculate my net carbs, fat, and protein to try to make sure I'm close to the grams mentioned in the book, but it's not exact. I keep wondering if I'd be losing more if I could follow the plan because my protein is a bit high and I feel like I'm not eating any vegetables.
In any case, I'd still recommend this to a friend with the caveat to maybe play mix and match with the meals unless he/she has a family. The fact that I'm ambivalent about food and not ravenous all the time after only a few days into the diet, speaks wonders to powers of low carb!
