Have you read through an “adapted book” about the Atkins Diet? If not, I highly suggest you do so today! A keto adapted book is not something that was recently invented; humans have been on a low carb diet for just over three thousand years where their diets were developed and nourished to improve endurance, mental ability and strength. The human brain evolved for thousands of years feeding itself predominantly on carbohydrates and proteins.
It wasn’t until the 19th century that we started eating more meats, dairy products and other carbohydrates. This is why we have so much trouble digesting high-glycemic starches like pizza and white bread! The same is true for our metabolisms when it comes to the Atkins Diet, and you may be surprised at what you learn about the Atkins Diet and keto nutrition in one of these books.
First off, there is Amygdalus communis flaxseed wheat bread by Dr. Michael E. Murray, PhD and assistant professor at the University of Georgia. This book discusses the benefits of a daily dose of the soybean enzyme rich flax seed oil. Dr. Murray explains how his study revealed that the keto metabolite concentrations in soybean are higher than those in cow’s milk, rice and corn, but even higher than red meat (meat that is derived from animal sources). Therefore, he recommends starting your Atkins diet with a glass of milk, a tablespoon or two of flaxseed oil and some tofu, cheese, chicken or turkey pizza.
Another “adapted book” on the Atkins Diet that covers the topics of the keto crust diet is “Keto Friendly Kitchen Cooking” by Dr. Michael E. Murray, PhD. This book provides recipes and suggestions for a wide variety of foods that will go well with the soy flour. Dr. Murray uses the Amygdalus communis flaxseed as a base, but also teaches the readers about other plant sterols and stanols that can be used to create a lovely net crust for your pizza.
The third book to use as a resource for your Atkins Diet is “The Atkins Cookbook: A Comprehensive Guide to Cooking Made Easy”, by Dr. Robert J. Atkins. Dr. Atkins is a long time advocate of the Atkins diet and has written several books on the subject. This book takes the most practical approach possible for a person who is just beginning an elimination diet such as the Atkins. This cookbook gives a person all of the information he needs to create a delicious, yet healthy pizza. One thing that I find interesting is that he does not seem to teach the importance of using cheese in a high-protein diet such as the Atkins. The only time I can see this discussed in one of his books is when discussing vegetarian pizza.
Another very valuable resource for someone on the Atkins Diet is “The Atkins Diet Cookbook: Twenty Questions to Ask Yourself and Have For Your Next Dinner”. This cookbook is very similar to the “amygdala diet cookbook” which I mentioned above. It gives you all of the information that you need to know to create tasty, yet healthy meals that are great on the Atkins Diet. These include the right types of meats, vegetables, and snacks to eat while on the diet. It also includes some interesting ideas on how to make keto friendly desserts such as fudges. Again, these recipes should only be used if you are on the Atkins as they are higher in carbohydrates than your regular everyday food.
There are several other excellent resources for someone looking to start keto diets. One of the best ones out there is “The Ultimate keto diet Guide”. This is by a nutritionist, Dr. Michael Allen. This book gives incredible information on what foods to eat when on the keto diet. Dr. Allen does state that this may not be effective for everyone, but it is still worth checking out.
In conclusion, if you are an obese person or suffering from diabetes, please see your doctor before starting any new diet plan. Remember, starting any diet plan can be difficult if you don’t have a clear plan for what you want to accomplish. Also, a diet high in fat and low in carbohydrates is not recommended for people with high blood pressure, heart problems, or pregnant women. The most important thing to remember when following a diet high in fat and low in carbohydrates is to have fun! As long as you are eating in moderation, and you are exercising regularly, you will be doing your body a big favor by eating in a low-carb, high-fat keto adapted book and by engaging in some fun, fat burning exercise routines.
