For those who are brand-new to keto and those who are getting back on track after falling off the wagon, the first 30 days on a ketogenic diet can be challenging. As the body adapts to burning fat (ketones) rather than sugar for fuel, cravings can arise, and some people find that they just don't feel so great. Many fall victim to the temptation to give up before they can truly experience the benefits of being keto-adapted. "The 30-Day Ketogenic Cleanse" isn't like most juice or other cleanses where you starve throughout the entire process. Keto expert Maria Emmerich offers tasty whole-food recipes--all dairy-free and nut-free--that are filling and satisfying and keep cravings at bay. Plus, she offers helpful tips and tricks for making it through the adjustment period.
"The 30-Day Ketogenic Cleanse" is a guidebook for healing the body from the inside out. Most people attempting a keto diet do it completely wrong. Maria Emmerich, on the other hand, bases this cleanse on a true, well-formulated ketogenic diet, helping readers reset their metabolism, regain health, lose weight, and tap into increased energy levels. This book includes:
--A detailed explanation of how sugar causes inflammation and leads to disease
--30-day meal plans to kick-start ketosis, with corresponding shopping lists
--30-day Whole30-compliant meal plans, with corresponding shopping lists
--A wide variety of amazing recipes, with suggestions for combining those recipes into delicious and satisfying ketogenic meals

You have arrived at reading the reviews and probably have this book in your shopping cart. By now, you know and completely understand that diets don’t work, but life changes do. And, you fully comprehend that carbs are the culprit, good fats are not, but you are not sure how to get to the other side, cross the bridge, and embrace the Keto lifestyle without ever looking back. The 30-Day Cleanse is only one month of a commitment, that’s it. 28 lousy days, packed with some of the most incredible food and after which you will feel better and will certainly drop some of those nasty pounds. Just 28-Days! But getting out of the carb and sugar trap isn’t easy, but you already knew that. Our addiction to processed foods, create carb monsters, and now it’s time to let this monster go, kick it to the curb, and let it get run over by a bus. I have been on Keto almost a year, and have dropped a lot of weight, gained so much more confidence and feel like I’m in my 30’s again (almost 50). I run several 5K’s a week, and at 5’7” I can easily fit back into a size 6. I finally have all my energy back. I was done being tired, and done eating foods I just didn’t like, and riding the diet roller coaster. Ketogenics is a sustainable life change and way of eating. If you’re still associating the word “diet” with it, you’ll quickly discover you’re dead wrong. Keto is a commitment, you can't be 90% in and 10% still eating wheat, sugar and processed foods. It won't work. And if you believe you can't live without your precious traditional bread, this way of eating is not for you. If you're ready for change, however, this book will help you get started, and segway you into a better and more delicious way to eat. Maria’s recipe’s will are never dull. They are creative and I love how she entices you to step out of your comfort zone to try new and different foods. I ate each and every one of them on the cleanse, and all were delicately balanced, fun, and absolutely tasty. If you are a seasoned cook, this will also test your new way of creating outstanding dishes that everybody in your family will enjoy. No separate cooking required during this time, even for kids. In our family, everybody enjoyed the food. Win. During the cleanse a little prep work can go a long way. Read the recipes, cut and chop whatever you can on the day prior to your cleanse weeks, many foods can be precooked or frozen (i.e. parsley, onions etc.). But also learn that this is not fast food, this is slow food. Enjoy preparing food that will nourish your body, and use the time while preparing your food, to reflect on what’s to come. Good food! And food is essential to life, and good food is essential to a happy life.55
I have just begun the program and actually love the results. However, the book is very difficult to read. The layout is designed better for print than device. I have tried to read it on my iPad and the text is very small. The format will not allow a single page view so you always end up viewing two pages… one of which is a full page photo. Lovely presentation but because they used a small type on the information side and take half the screen for a photo on the right it is very difficult to read. If I enlarge the view on my device it requires constant scrolling both left to right and up and down. Very poorly designed for use on electronic device and frustrating. Buy the hard copy!35
I love this book! It's honest and straight forward. As you are reading the book you feel like Maria is there guiding you. She wants you succeed at lose weight and gaining health. Also the recipes are delicious! I hated to cook before I started cooking Maria's recipes. Now I love to cook! My husband and kids love her recipes too.25
