Synopsis from Simon & Schuster:
More than 70 high-fiber, easy and delicious recipes for the high-fat, low-carb diet perfect for everyone looking to lose weight and stay healthy.
By now, we’ve all heard—and even tried—the keto diet. But when cutting out carbs such as fruits and grains, it is easy to worry about digestive health—and too few (or too many) trips to the bathroom. Dr. Thomas Kurscheid offers the perfect solution. Demonstrating how simple it can be to make delicious keto-friendly, high-fiber meals without sugary fruits and starchy carbohydrates, The Keto High Fiber Diet offers flavorful and healthy meals that you can make in no time.
The Keto High Fiber Diet is split into two phases: a strict low-carb phase kick-starting the ketosis, and a gentler one that stabilizes it. Both phases offer a large selection of recipes including drinks, salads, bowls, and mains. Focusing on high-fiber, low-carb veggies like avocado, cauliflower, broccoli, and cabbage, these more than 70 appetizing, balanced recipes will train your body to burn fat instead of sugar for effective weight loss and steady energy, all while maintaining healthy levels of fiber. From a delicious breakfast bowl to a creamy chicken curry, Dr. Kurscheid’s keto diet could not get any healthier or easier. Let this book be your guide to the body you’ve always dreamed of without sacrificing all your favorite foods!

My Experience: I started eating the morning bowls on December 31, 2020 and in the first half of January 2021. I wanted to lose weight. I loved both Morning Bowl with Eggs, Avocado, and Tomatoes and Morning Bowl with Strawberries, Avocado, and Cottage Cheese so much that I eat them almost everyday. See pictures below for them.
On 1/26/2021, I made the Asparagus lunch and it was delicious! I didn’t make the sauce but it’s really good on its own too. I substituted shrimp for lobster tails and made two servings. I ate the same for dinner. I can see myself eating this dish a lot in the future. It’s that good! The recipe was easy to follow and quick to make, both met my busy schedule standards!
Honestly, I do get hungry after eating this meal, so I eat twice as much every time I made it and I have eaten 3-5 times already!
One day, I made Kale & Cheese Omelet for brunch and loved it. My version doesn’t look exactly like the cookbook because I sliced the shallots instead of finely diced it. I also put more fresh kale because I need all the extra vitamins kale has. I also substituted cheese because I didn’t have gouda cheese on hand. It’s still delicious 😋
I started reading in detailed the advices the author gave in the first 47 pages of the book. It’s definitely helpful. One advice was to eat slowly so we don’t ended up overeating. Another was how consuming fibers keeps us feeling full longer. I didn’t know that the side effects of antibiotics is gaining weight. Now I understand why Italian restaurants served olive oil with their bread as snacks while we wait for our meals. The good oil breaks down the carbs slowly and protect us from elevated blood sugar thus helping to prevent diabetes.
One day I tried cooking the Salmon Fillet on Creamy Kale and it was delicious!
I like learning which foods has good sources of protein and I appreciate that the author listed them out. I also like learning which vegetables is good for vision and it’s not the usual carrot I’m accustomed to hearing. The definition of triglycerides was helpful because I just got my lab results back and I’m understanding it more.
Today, 2/18/21, I’m having a Kale Smoothie with Avocado, Cucumber & Coconut for brunch at 10:30am. It’s surprisingly delicious. I haven’t had a green drink in 2 years!
The breakdown of the phases and what to do daily was helpful. I like the glimpse into the author’s lunch at work. I like the pages of keeping on track! Very helpful advice. As I read “How to Make a Successful Start,” I see myself having to restart the whole process over again. Strict with results so I’m inclined to restart the Keto High Fiber Diet. I highly recommend everyone this cookbook to keeping yourself healthy or start changing your eating habits. I will add more pictures on here as I try new dishes.
