Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
One size does not fit all when it comes to the ketogenic diet. Keto: A Woman's Guide offers a balanced approach to using the keto diet to optimize hormonal balance and body composition, customizable to your specific dieting goals.
Women need to do keto better and smarter to get the health and fat-burning benefits they are seeking. Men and women have different energy requirements, different levels of hormones, and metabolize nutrients differently. With the soaring popularity of low-carb diets in recent years has come a lot of confusing and misleading information--and very few resources that consider the unique physiology of women on a ketogenic diet. Keto: A Woman's Guide addresses the misconceptions and discrepancies to give you a clear path to keto success .
Ketogasm website and blog creator, Tasha Metcalf, outlines the fundamental differences between male and female keto dieters , how to correctly determine your calorie and nutrient needs, and how to adapt the appropriate approach for your particular keto dieting strategy, whether for fat-burning and weight loss, reversing insulin resistance and PCOS, athletic performance, thyroid health, and/or balancing your hormonal cycle. She also explains the ketogenic diet phases , their particular lengths and objectives, and actionable steps for getting the most out of each phase of the diet.
With Keto: A Woman's Guide as your trusted source, meet your individual keto goals with a diet plan custom fit for your body.
