    Hi highly recommend Keto Made Easy, easy to follow and great recipes. Ketoconnect is the reason I started and stuck with Keto

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Awesome! Thanks for the recommendation, Rosi! Good to know how helpful that one has been!

  2. Guy Racicot

    I highly recommend Dr Jason Fung’s book: The Complete Guide to Fasting. It is the logical “must read” book after you have read The Obesity Code.

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Oh cool! Thanks a bunch for the suggestion!

  3. JenLoves2Save

    Hi all. I have been using Simply Keto by Suzanne Ryan, mentioned in this post, and it has really helped me stick to keto eating. The recipes are simple and most of them are suited for 1 but can easily be doubled, or more, to accommodate extra servings. Each recipe also has a picture of the final product which I personally like in my cookbooks, as well as the nutritional facts for each recipe. 🙂

    • Amber (Hip Sidekick)

      Yay! Super happy you have been loving that one! Thanks a TON for the great review!
