I have decided to put together a recommendation of some of the best low carb books and keto books.
The different books are divided in the following different areas: Low Carb Cooking Books, Keto Diet Cooking Books, General Low Carb Books and General Keto books. These are the books that I consider to be the very best and a must read for anyone on a keto or low carb diet.
Low Carb Cooking Books
500 Low-Carb Recipes: 500 Recipes, from Snacks to Dessert, That the Whole Family Will Love. Low-fat or low-carb? A recent New York Times Magazine (July 7, 2002) cover story answered this question and said that Dr. Atkins was right all along, “its not fat that makes us fat but carbohydrates.” Though the government has spent hundreds of millions of dollars in research trying to prove that fat is the cause of obesity, there has been a subtle shift in the scientific consensus over the past five years supporting what the low-carb diet doctors have been saying all along: if we eat less carbohydrates, we will lose weight and live longer. One of the toughest challenges of any diet is having enough variety and choices to keep the dieter from losing interest.

The Keto Living Cookbook was written by Ella Coleman, an accomplished cook who loves experimenting with flavor combinations, and delights in eating and living a keto lifestyle. It’s no secret that carbs raise blood sugar, and our body produces insulin to get rid of it. The insulin then helps glucose convert to fat, and this is stored in our fat cells. Goodbye self-esteem. Hello, cellulite! On the ketogenic diet, carbs are limited and protein and fats are eaten in preference, keeping the body in a state of ketosis, and burning fats for a good, steady stream of energy.
The Keto Cookbook. The Keto Cookbook is for those using the ketogenic diet to treat pediatric epilepsy and other neurologic conditions. Each of the 96 recipes for breakfast and brunch, appetizers and snacks, lunch, dinner, and sweets and treats, are compliant with the Keto Calculator and therefore ingredient portions are provided in grams. The ketogenic diet, which is very high in fats and low in carbohydrates, was first developed almost 80 years ago. It makes the body burn fat for energy instead of glucose. When carefully monitored by a medical team familiar with its use, the diet helps two out of three children who are tried on it and may prevent seizures completely in one out of three. It is a strict diet, and takes a strong commitment from the whole family
