  • Awesome stuff! Question, how do you feel about the Ketogenic diet and are you familiar with it? I like the way your site looks and I think you and your readers may be interested in a book on Ketosis that I wrote which somewhat follows the theme of your post. The book is titled “Ketosis and the Ketogenic Diet: The Complete Guide to a High Fat Low Carb Diet with Recipes”. It’s always great to get inspiration from blogs posts like this! I will leave a link to my book if you or anyone else wants to check it out.

    • Hi Brenton so glad you read my post. 

      The Ketogenic diet is truly a great one. The complete guide to a high fat low carb diet sounds great and I would love to have a read. Thanks a lot for leaving your link, i think it’s a great way for us to share.

      Cheers
