Questions from Facebook:
Micheal: I’ve lost 112 pounds on keto-paleo, down from 260lbs, but still have about 10lbs around my mid section that is very stubborn. Any suggestions for getting rid of the last ten pounds
Linda: I would like to know more about the 2 week menu and recipes in her ebook. I am thinking about buying the ebook, but am looking for an easy to follow, good meal plan. I’ve been paleo with occasional raw dairy for a year and would like to try the ketogenic diet for health reasons.
Gina: Is it as complicated as it seems?
Bonnie: What, if any, sweetener did she allow herself? When I followed a keto diet in the past, I used Splenda, Xylitol, Stevia and Erythritol (I was also combining keto with anti-candida diet) for an occasional treat to help me stay on track. Now, those sweeteners don’t appeal to me (with the exception of Stevia, on occasion) but I know that I will need an occasional treat (special occasions and such) to stay on track.
Tony: It would be good to hear what she has to say about health issues by going keto. I have a friend that freaks out every time I tell her I want to go keto, she reckons it will damage my already dodgey kidneys big time!!
Pamela: I’ve done low carb ketogenic diets in the past w/ great results; however, as I got older they seemed less effective. I do paleo to feel healthy but I really am *stuck* at a healthy size 14 unless I do tons of exercise & weight training which, as a single FT working mom, I just have time to do. So my question is this… do we need to count calories as we get older to have the same effects on a ketogenic diet? I’m in my 40s, fairly active (hiking / walking, hit the gym a couple times / week) & not menopausal. Thanks!
Facebook Fan: Do we really have to measure our ketones level to follow this diet? Can we know we are in ketones without that?
Ali: My household has gone paleo and some things in the Keto cookbooks are using things that are no longer in my kitchen. We are not loosing weight but are eating very healthy foods now. So, we want to take the steps to get into Ketosis to loose weight. So, is Kim’s book the book for us?
Mélanie: Thanks about the article the thing is that I have been on a very low carb diet for 5 months because I have a carb malabsorption of some kind and probabaly sibo. I am maybe in ketones but never realized it. I didn’t noticed the smell of my breath or pee. Is it really obvious?
Mélanie: I would also like to know if being in ketosis can cause a disrupt women’s periods.
Bonnie: Any suggestions for the keto bad breath?

Are you wanting to try ketosis?
I had some questions myself when I wanted to try ketois but all the info was hard to find and scattered all over the web. I wished there was one easy guide to follow with all the tips and tricks in one place from a veteran who has tried it herself. Well now there is in the new book from Kim Knoch of Eat Fat Lose Fat Blog. She lost 40 lbs and was so excited she had to share keto with the world. The great thing about her book is that she writes from experience with her own health and weight problems.
I don’t know about you but I hate it when naturally skinny people tell me how to be thin. I feel like they don’t have any clue what I have been through as an overweight child all the way to being an obese college student. When I read Kim’s book I was like “this chick gets me!” You can hear the pain and the struggle she has been through. She knows the challenges that over eaters and/or chronic dieters face and you can hear the hope in her voice that comes through when she finally found Keto! Kim says it was like the light went on and it clicked!!! I felt a connection with her after reading and you will too!
This book so great because it is easy to read, logically laid out and full of hints and tips the whole way.
