High Fibre Keto A 22-Day Science-Based Plan to Fix Your Metabolism, Lose Weight & Balance Your Hormones

Author: Naomi Whittel Format: Hardback Release Date: 25/02/2020

Have you tried going keto and found that it has made you feel worse rather than better? Does keto seem to make sense in so many ways yet seem just slightly off in several key ones? What if it's not just you? What if traditional keto diet simply fails to encompass the needs of the female body? Naomi Whittel, the New York Times bestselling author of Glow15, explores how the problem isn't keto, it's fibre. Ninety percent of women are fibre deficient, and when women go the standard keto route, they often lean into animal-based, high-fat, zero-fibre foods, leading to low energy, brain fog and unnecessary weight gain. Whittel explores the prebiotic fibre sources that work within a keto framework to speed up your metabolism, transform your microbiome, balance your hormones and keep you feeling full. Included are a 22-day meal plan, movement plan and delicious, easy-to-make recipes.
