  “Very informative. I now understand keto!”

  “Very informative and explains the keto diet inside and out. I feel like I know how to do it if I ever decide to, though the information also covered pros and cons enough that I was able to see it’s not for me. I do like that the author aimed to teach about rather than convert the student.”
