Ketotarian: The (Mostly) Plant-Based Plan to Burn Fat, Boost Your Energy, Crush Your Cravings, and Calm Inflammation Reviews

  • Jacqueline Wheeler

    I love this book. I actually have read it twice this year and have learned so much each time I read it. I am a huge lover of keto, but I also believe alot of people do it in an unhealthy way. This book has you eat tons of veggies, whole foods, healthy fats, and the recipes are simple and super tasty! Highly recommend to anyone doing keto, or any plant based eaters.

    ⚡I was first introduced to Dr Will Cole on my favorite podcast, That’s So Retrograde. He’s so insightful that I was inspired to give this book a shot. Ended up a great reference on how to conquer health issues and reevaluate your relationship with food. I enjoyed learning more about my body, as well as the food and supplements that can help it perform better. I recently began the Keto Diet. Still not sure I’ll switch to Keto-Tarian, but I will incorporate some of his suggestions as to which meat

Wishing I would’ve bought this book instead of borrowing from library for the recipes. Added to my amazon wishlist to snag later ;-)

    so I have been trying to stay on the keto diet for a year . I have my ups and downs but having choices makes it easier. I have nothing against eating meat / dairy but I do like having vegan / vegitarian choices too--- so this just adds another dimension to the keto lifestyle. For that it is wonderful.

    Let me start off by saying that the info is great, and very useful for the 'lay vegan/vegetarian' types. If you are still thinking that boiled chicken is the epitome of clean nutrition, this book will also be of great use for you.

    The book covers lots of material on a very shallow basis, quickly skimming by stating that things are good without going in-depth. Vague statements along the lines of 'does your body good' while correct, are a bit of a miss for me. Had to pinpoint several new facts tha

    Let me start off by saying that the info is great, and very useful for the 'lay vegan/vegetarian' types. If you are still thinking that boiled chicken is the epitome of clean nutrition, this book will also be of great use for you.

    The book covers lots of material on a very shallow basis, quickly skimming by stating that things are good without going in-depth. Vague statements along the lines of 'does your body good' while correct, are a bit of a miss for me. Had to pinpoint several new facts that were introduced by the author and then search the in-depth breakdown of what he was alluding to.

    Another personal let down is that while the author says that getting the optimal nutrition being vegan IS possible (although a little more tough), he continues to push the fact that it is not advised. A little depressing that someone who followed the lifestyle for a long time wasn't able to see the bigger picture of the environmental meltdown that is currently fueled by the animal agriculture industry. On the same note, i had a great laugh reading the quote by the author's friend who's opinion is quoted to show that veganism may not be optimal.

    " I spent some time reflecting on life in the wild. We all consume one another in the end. Our atoms and molecules are continually recycled. Every living thing without the benefit of photosynthesis must consume other beings – plants, fungi, bacteria, and animals. And in the end, they will consume me. I prayed and meditated on these ideas. Humans have been eating all these things for thousands of generations, so I decided I was not committing a crime against nature if I ate meat. Perhaps I was getting even closer to nature. "

    Forgive me for not believing that modern slaughter house mass production of 'pork processing plants' is not getting me closer to nature. Please take a look at the conditions of just about any animal farm and then report back on how it 'makes you feel closer to nature' to support the mass executions of animals.

    Regardless of my 'militant vegan' view, the book offers lots in the way of beginner level nutrition, and helped me identify several areas i might be falling short. Great info, questionable priorities.

    I thought it was a great book. While I am all on board as a practitioner and self-professed "patient" as to the benefits of Keto food regimen and lifestyle, I am definitely not a meat eater and would be cautious to recommend unbridled meat consumption to patients who will derive their sources of meat from conventional mass-farmed animals. Besides, not everyone who feels undernourished to conventional vegan and vegetarian diets is nevertheless ready to make the transition to complete avoidance of

    I thought it was a great book. While I am all on board as a practitioner and self-professed "patient" as to the benefits of Keto food regimen and lifestyle, I am definitely not a meat eater and would be cautious to recommend unbridled meat consumption to patients who will derive their sources of meat from conventional mass-farmed animals. Besides, not everyone who feels undernourished to conventional vegan and vegetarian diets is nevertheless ready to make the transition to complete avoidance of vegetable matter in favor of a steak a day.

    The book gives clear instructions on the goals of the food regimen, and no, it's not weight loss first and foremost, although certainly, in functional medicine, the healthy gradual weight loss usually follows a decrease in overall inflammation. You will be guided through a clear and concise refresher on essential nutrients and their relationship to main body systems (recent research is listed in the reference section), will be primed on what to expect on the Ketotarian plan, and after that, given a clear run down on what foods to consume and which ones to avoid.

    The book can be used as a structured plan of 60 days, or an idea book for an indefinite keto lifestyle. Dr. Will Cole is no slouch on the latest digital trends, and should anyone need help and further info, his expertise is available via different media channels. (I tagged #ketotarian on instagram for a food-related post of my own and quickly got an acknowledgement and a thank you - a nice little gesture, although it was not the post's primary intent). Lastly, it is a beautiful cookbook, with nice food photography and simple and concise recipes and ingredients I have come to rely on even back in my raw foodist days, a type of life style that I find highly beneficial, but for various genetic reasons (just like Dr. Cole), cannot engage in long term. And yes, smoothies and green juices are ok - sans sugar and sweeteners! A great addition to my health library and great resource to anyone whose health tool chest is in the kitchen.

    I love reading diet books. Don’t ask me why?!

    This is a concept that I’ve always been intrigued by-a mostly plant based Keto diet with the occasional egg and fresh fish thrown in the mix...unlike a Pegan(Paleo Vegan) diet, this seems to offer a bit more flexibility in what you can eat.

    The premise is simple-eat mostly plants for protein and fats (avocado/olives/seeds for fats), some eggs and fish, keep carbs lower than 55 grams per day, limit or eliminate alcohol, eliminate processed foods....tha

    I’m gonna give it a whirl and see what’s what.

    Book was easy to read.

    Another health & nutrition book, with recipes, of the "finally, this will solve everything!" variety. About half the book details the supposed health benefits to get you to buy in, with the back half devoted to recipes. (I'd rather have less of a sales job and more recipes.) If you don't like avocados and coconut, you're probably not going to be crazy about this book.

  • Caitlin Dickerboom

    I was very excited to receive this book but it did let me down a bit. The first 100+ is information about the diet and benefits, then the end is simple recipes with a rare photo. Feel like the hype mislead me into thinking this would be THE BOOK for vegan/veg keto recipes. Nonetheless, a few things look tasty and I will keep in my collection.

  • Linda Hopf

    Good info on the science behind this diet trend. Makes sense. Love that it has a plant-based focus. Allows fish/seafood as protein - no dairy though. Some good recipes.

    Unless you are a vegetarian and you eat eggs and dairy; going keto is very, very, very difficult to pull off. But that does not stop people from tweaking the lingo to make us think they've figured this keto thing out for vegans/non-dairy eating vegetarians. If you are one of those rare vegans who is overweight - try reducing to elimination the high carbs items in your diet - that includes all that crap made especially for vegans that substitutes all kinds of artificial ingredients.

    Unless you are a vegetarian and you eat eggs and dairy; going keto is very, very, very difficult to pull off. But that does not stop people from tweaking the lingo to make us think they've figured this keto thing out for vegans/non-dairy eating vegetarians. If you are one of those rare vegans who is overweight - try reducing to elimination the high carbs items in your diet - that includes all that crap made especially for vegans that substitutes all kinds of artificial ingredients. Try that for 3 months and watch what happens.

    p.s. Don't forget to sweat.
