The high-fat, low-carbohydrate modified ketogenic diet, based on a ratio of fat to non-fat (protein and carbohydrates) of 2:1 and 1:1, has been used to improve seizure control in people with epilepsy. New research suggests that the diet may promote weight loss and provide benefit to those with cancer, brain injury, forms of dementia, autism, migraines and other neurological problems.
With a focus on fresh, clean eating and simple, everyday meals and snacks requiring minimal effort and time, The Modified Keto Cookbook will help even the busiest families or individuals incorporate the diet into their lifestyle and experience the rewards. Start your day with a Chocolate Peanut Butter Breakfast Shake or Baked Eggs with Cream and Herbs. For lunch, enjoy Butternut Squash Soup and Spinach and Ricotta Filled Portabella Mushrooms. Whip up Chicken Peanut Curry, Beef and Mushroom Stew, or Baked Cod with Roasted Red Pepper Sauce for a satisfying dinner. For dessert, try Refrigerator Coconut Macaroons, Chocolate Chia Pudding, or ice cream drizzled in Caramel Sauce.
Includes: Allergy-free recipes (nut, dairy, and egg free), No-cook and make-ahead meals, and suggestions to increase fat in recipes to conform to the classic ketogenic diet ratios of 4:1 and 3:1 Recipes with standard U.S. measurements and grams

“As is true of The Keto Cookbook, I expect to see many dog-eared and food-splashed copies of The Modified Keto Cookbook, which are proof of just how much families rely on these delicious and creative recipes to achieve health through metabolic therapy.”
√≥Christine Williams-Dyjur, RD, Ketogenic Diet Specialist
“This new cookbook is a welcome addition for those who are able to follow a more liberal diet, and even those on a more classical version can easily adapt the recipes to work with their individual plans.”

Great resource for those using the Ketogenic diet or Modified Atkins diet. My son has loved every recipe in here so far. All the recipes can be adapted into the Ketocalculator to balance out whatever ratio is needed. I love that both standard cooking measurements and gram measurements are included. I was also very pleased with the fact there were many dairy-free options as well. I do own the Keto Cookbook, but this one is my favorite. We were in need of fresh ideas, and found a good variety of new recipes in this book.
Some real good recipe I especially like the lemon spinach and coconut milk soup. I’ve been slowly converting over to this diet due to a medical issue. It takes time but it is easier with good low carb recipes.
Dawn you have done it again !! Another great cookbook !! This has been a win win with my long time Keto kid ( young adult ) ! Lots of great new recipes to try ! Plus I have found this cookbook very easy to use and the recipes are easy to adapted to any ratio !!
