Craig and Maria Emmerich have partnered to write a book that goes well beyond the typical ketogenic recipes to create a book that digs deep into the science of ketogenic dieting, explains how dozens of diseases can be cured or controlled through ketogenic dieting, and how ketogenic diets are fueling a new breed of athlete.
The Keto Book is the definitive resource to the ketogenic lifestyle. Inside, you'll learn
- How cancer, obesity, metabolic syndrome, coronary artery disease, high cholesterol, Alzheimer's, dementia, ADHD, anxiety, and depression can all be beaten into submission by making some simple, yet impactful, changes to your diet.
- How cholesterol and diabetes medications could very well be making you sicker rather than better.
- How generations of bad advice—advice designed to sell sugar not health—has killed millions who blindly trusted the medical community and worse still, the government, to tell them the truth.
- How overconsumption of carbohydrates is both bad for your health and could be at the root of what ails you.
- How changing your inputs—the foods you eat—can change your outputs, meaning the quality of life that you live.
- How reductions in fat consumption have led to a tripling of diabetes patients, sharp increases in the number of cancer patients, increases in ADHD, and a meteoric rise in heart disease rates. If we are to assume that eliminating fat from our diets is the key to good health, why then are more and more people who’ve followed this advice dying from food-related diseases?
- How inflammation is at the root of many diseases, and how modern diets that are rife with sugar, carbs, and omega-6 oils are sending us to early graves.
- How hormones control mood swings, sex drive, blood sugar levels, muscle tone, fat-burning ability, metabolism, the immune system, and much more—and how adopting a ketogenic lifestyle will change your waistline and your life!
- How to stock your pantry with the right foods and make meal plans that are delicious, easy to follow, and most importantly, are the pathway to a longer, healthier life.
- How you can build muscle and perform your best on a low-carb, high-fat diet. No, we're not making that up!
So, enjoy that slab of bacon. Gnaw on that rib bone. And say "no" to that plate of "heart-healthy" pasta. New York Times bestselling author, Maria Emmerich and husband, Craig, are going to take you on a journey to a new life—one that helps you lose weight, build muscle, and live the life nature intended you to live!
Keto meets carnivore in this revolutionary new book by revered cookbook author and low-carb pioneer Maria Emmerich.
Did you know that our ancestors were apex predators who were even more carnivorous than hyenas and big cats? That was only about 30,000 years ago. But since then, our diets have drastically changed due to the invention of agriculture about 7,000 years ago and, within the last 100 years or so, the introduction of millions of food additives, the development of a year-round produce supply, and the hybridization of fruits and vegetables, making them higher in sugar and lower in nutrients. Carnivore Cookbook explores what our bodies were really designed to digest and gives compelling evidence that we were designed to be primarily meat-eaters.
In this book, you will learn why all plants come with a downside. Antinutrients are chemicals and compounds that act as natural pesticides or defenses for the plants against being eaten. Maria explains how antinutrients can rob your body of minerals and other nutrients and lead to autoimmune issues and leaky gut. There is even a protocol for healing autoimmune issues called the Carnivore Autoimmune Protocol: a detailed system for stepping you through the various levels of carnivorous eating to find the point where your body responds best and is symptom free. You will also learn which foods are the highest in nutrient density to help your body heal.
Carnivore Cookbook includes more than 100 tasty meat-focused recipes featuring innovative ways to add flavor and variety. There are even carnivore meal plans with grocery lists to make the diet easy to follow.

In this book, international bestselling author Maria Emmerich presents more than 160 delicious low-carb, high-fat keto recipes designed to be cooked in an Instant Pot or other multi-cooker. The recipes run the gamut from appetizers and sides to soups to main dishes to sweet treats and even a few drinks, along with some handy keto basics. As a bonus, Maria also includes slow-cooking instructions (which can be done either in the Instant Pot or in a separate slow cooker) for each recipe for those days when set-it-and-forget-it convenience takes precedence over the need for speed.

Although the ketogenic diet can be a healthy and satisfying diet for everyone, modifying it around other dietary restrictions can be challenging. People with dairy intolerances or allergies often struggle to adapt keto recipes, many of which rely on dairy staples like butter, heavy cream, and cream cheese. And good dairy-free alternatives can be hard to come by.
Maria Emmerich solves that problem with her latest book, Easy Dairy-Free Keto. Maria has been advising her clients to avoid dairy, at least during the initial stages of their foray into ketosis, for many years. She finds that even high-fat dairy products can stall weight loss and healing. That's why she set out to create an entire book of recipes that are safe for people who are avoiding dairy. With Maria's delicious high-fat, low-carb recipes, dairy-free keto home cooks will never feel like they are missing out.
Those recipes include:
- Almost Deviled Eggs
- Snickerdoodle Mini-Muffins
- Super Keto Pancakes
- Curry Chicken Meatballs
- Broth Fondue
- Avocado Salmon Ceviche
- Juicy Pork Loin
- Avocado Toast
- Mint Chip Gelato
- Banana Bread.
And much more! Maria has gone out of her way to create an entire book of keto recipes that will appeal to everyone, whether they consume dairy or not. With over 175 recipes, multiple meal plans catering to many different dietary needs and allergies and including AIP and vegetarian meal plans, Easy Dairy-Free Keto strives to be the book that reaches the entire keto audience and becomes a staple in your keto kitchen.

food-related gifts for the holidays and friends’ birthdays.
Even when I was a poor college student, I would make
homemade food gifts for my friends and family. It was
usually caramel apple pie (not healthified!), unbaked and
frozen, with a label on it explaining how to bake it so that
the recipients could enjoy a fresh-baked pie whenever they
I still love to give food gifts, but I choose healthified gifts
now. This past year I made gift baskets filled with a bag of
Swerve sweetener, chocolates from ChocoPerfection, and
Primal Kitchen Greek salad dressing, as well as my
homemade taco seasoning. The reason I love to include this
taco seasoning mix is that it also helps educate people. I had
a family member tell me that he hadn’t been feeling well for
quite some time, so he decided to cut out gluten, but it
hadn’t helped. I asked him if he had cut out smoked meats,
beef jerky, spice mixes, and a few other products, all of
which contain gluten. He hadn’t. Once he started following
the rules on my avoid-hidden-gluten plan, he finally began
to feel amazing.
