The idea of the ketogenic diet is simple – avoid carbs and eat more fat. But it’s a lot more complicated than that. In fact, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with all the literature around keto.
Luckily, with these amazing books, you’ll know what you’re getting into. All the facts are laid out from a woman’s perspective! Soon you’ll be basking in the powers of this incredible way of life.
Starting a new lifestyle way of eating, can be difficult to navigate. She Does Keto breaks down the ketogenic diet, specifically from women. It covers health concerns and the best ways to eat healthily, stay fit and feel good. This book targets women’s unique nutritional needs and has a ton of female-friendly recipes and tips to follow.
As an advocate for women’s health and the the keto diet, Leanne’s new book Keto For Women creates a way for women to take control of some of the most difficult illnesses such as thyroid imbalances, menopause, PCOS, adrenal fatigue, pregnancy, menstrual cycles, sex drive and more through the power of the keto diet.
The purpose of the book is to inspire women to feed their body nourishing keto foods and heal their metabolism. Also instead of eating emotionally, fill your life with nourishing self-care practices, so you learn to eat when you are truly hungry.
As you know, the ketogenic diet is only growing in buzz and popularity, as is the intermittent fasting diet trend. Intermittent fasting has many variations, such as eating only during a certain window of each day, or eating normally a few days of the week, then restricting calories on other days.
This diet book amplifies both trends by combining the two approaches – suggesting that readers can intermittently fast while on the ketogenic diet. The book lays out sets of guidelines for people who prefer to fast for a portion of each day and for those who prefer to fast for a couple of entire days a week. Plus, it has recipes, like almond-crusted salmon and Italian stuffed peppers.
This combination of eating plans isn’t news to health professionals. “[Many] people who do the ketogenic diet also intermittently fast,” says Kelly Roehl, RDN, a dietitian and instructor at Rush University Medical Center in Chicago. Jalali says “intermittent fasting on the ketogenic diet is fine as long as people are able to eat enough in the window.” And so a book that helps people fuse the two in an easy way may be beneficial for some.
Still, pairing two big diet trends isnât without risks. “Intermittent fasting while on the ketogenic diet is going to be really difficult to follow, because keto is already challenging,” says Hultin. On top of that, she adds, intermittent fasting can be unsafe if not followed correctly, and so can keto.
“It may be a great idea for some people, but it might not be safe for every person, which is why you need to check with your doctor and registered dietitian before trying this approach to eating,” Hultin adds.

Dr. Anna’s compelling story is inspired by her own life experiences; she went through menopause twice – the first time at 38 after suffering a tragedy of losing a toddler, and then again 50 years old. She was actually able to reverse her own early menopause at 38 (and the probability of doing this is about 1%!), and went on to conceive a beautiful daughter. Now at 52 years old, she is healthy, vibrant, mother of 4 daughters (including a 10 year old!), and is helping thousands of other women navigate the difficulties of hormonal changes.
