One size does not fit all when it comes to the ketogenic diet. Keto: A Woman's Guide offers a balanced approach to using the keto diet to optimize hormonal balance and body composition, customizable to your specific dieting goals. Women need to do keto better and smarter to get the health and fat-burning benefits they are seeking. Men and women have different energy requirements, different levels of hormones, and metabolize nutrients differently. With the soaring popularity of low-carb diets in recent years has come a lot of confusing and misleading information—and very few resources that consider the unique physiology of women on a ketogenic diet. Keto: A Woman's Guide addresses the misconceptions and discrepancies to give you a clear path to keto success. Ketogasm website and blog creator, Tasha Metcalf, outlines the fundamental differences between male and female keto dieters, how to correctly determine your calorie and nutrient needs, and how to adapt the appropriate approach for your particular keto dieting strategy, whether for fat-burning and weight loss, reversing insulin resistance and PCOS, athletic performance, thyroid health, and/or balancing your hormonal cycle. She also explains the ketogenic diet phases, their particular lengths and objectives, and actionable steps for getting the most out of each phase of the diet. With Keto: A Woman's Guide as your trusted source, meet your individual keto goals with a diet plan custom fit for your body.

Great book on how any woman can follow the keto diet and lose weight. Keto is not as simple as some of the other diets on the current trend. It is a more personalized approach so anyone hoping to go keto definitely needs to read and follow guidelines.
We women are different than men in so many ways, and our diet is just one of them. We deal with hormones from puberty, pregnancy and menopause that present challenges beyond merely aging. In this book, the author provides a view into some of these differences and how we can deal with them on Keto. The reason I wanted to read this book is because of the section on Thyroid health. I’ve read that you can do keto with hypothyroidism, but mostly I’ve heard that you shouldn’t. It was good to read more about doing keto in menopause as well. Lots of different issues for women and it’s good to read up on them. If you’re new to the ketogenic diet, the book also has a primer to help you understand keto, macronutrients and so on. All in all, it’s a good resource for both women who are new to keto and those of us that are a bit more seasoned and looking to understand some of the unique challenges we face.
A great guide for anyone who wants to go much more in-depth regarding the keto diet and how it works for women and our specific needs. This is definitely for someone who already has all the basic information and the recipe books and wants to learn more. I wouldn't recommend it for someone just starting out, because it may be overwhelming. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
This book is flooded with information with a few diagrams. A lot of key points on Keto for Women I will be sure to check out. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
