This wiki has been updated 16 times since it was first published in August of 2018. The Keto Diet is an eating plan that limits carbohydrates, encourages adequate protein intake and prioritizes fats. Whether you’re looking to completely change your lifestyle or simply drop a few pounds, our list of cookbooks delivers a variety of easy-to-follow recipes. We’ve included options for everyone, from busy parents to the lactose intolerant - just be sure to consult your physician first. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

October 28, 2019:

Many people who struggle with weight loss or living a healthy lifestyle find the Keto Diet to be a saving grace, but as with any diet, you need to do your research first. Speak with your doctor or a nutritionist, take your medical history and eating habits into account, and consider picking up an explanatory book or two. To give yourself the best chance, it's best not to enter a new diet lightly and without consideration.

We wanted this list to run the gamut on recipe types and important information regarding Keto in general, so you'll find options for those who are just beginning (Keto Made Easy) as well as those pressed for time (Quick & Easy, The One-Pot Cookbook), volumes that focus on desserts (Easy Desserts) and savory comfort foods (Comfort Foods, Keto For Carb Lovers), comprehensive selections, (The Complete Guide), and books that simplify things and provide moral support (A Practical Approach).

We let go of A Year of Fat Bombs and The 5-Ingredient Diet to make way for Keto For Carb Lovers, which we feel is more practical than having recipes simply for fat bombs (although they're a very useful snack to have on hand), and Keto Made Easy, which we feel is more comprehensive and approachable than The 5-Ingredient Diet.
