Women’s bodies are different from men’s in many ways: including in physical composition, hormonal makeup, and how they metabolize fat and calories. Here, Ketogasm website and blog creator, Tasha Metcalf, breaks down the essential differences between male and female keto dieters to create an actionable plan for adapting the keto diet to your own body and needs, whether you are looking to lose weight, reverse insulin resistance and PCOS, enhance athletic performance, improve thyroid health, or balance your hormonal cycle.

The first part of this book introduces the keto diet and fat-burning metabolism, while busting common keto myths and addressing diet dogma. This sets the stage for you to confidently approach your diet, avoid the pitfalls, and put the naysayers to rest.

Next, learn exactly how female bodies respond to both diet and exercise. Find out how the keto diet and calories coexist, how the menstrual cycle and menopause affect metabolism and eating behavior, and how the keto diet can be used to bring harmony to your hormones.

Finally, put everything you’ve learning together to implement your custom keto diet with simple strategies and instructions. These and more delicious recipes make it easy to stay on track all day long:

Keto, A Woman’s Guide, is a must-read for all women wanting to win the weight loss battle with a keto lifestyle! Regular hormonal changes make the female approach to weight loss different than a standard keto plan geared towards men. This guide helps women understand why their male counterparts seem to struggle less when it comes to losing weight. Tasha does an excellent job explaining how things like hunger and metabolic rate can fluctuate during the female hormonal cycle.

–Lisa MarcAurele, founder of Low Carb Yum

A keto book for women, by a woman; this is just what the keto community needed. We’ve known for decades that women’s bodies have different metabolic pathways for various drugs and medicines, why would it be any different for the food we eat? Keto: A Woman’s Guide helps identify the benefits and potential pitfalls of the female keto lifestyle and set women up for greater success.

–Carolyn Ketchum, best-selling author of The Everyday Ketogenic Kitchen

Tasha’s book should be on every keto woman’s bookshelf. Men and women are so different when it comes to losing weight, yet most advice on how to follow a healthy diet is not designed for their respective needs. From understanding how female hormones impact weight loss and ketosis to the smartest food and exercise strategies, Tasha explains everything in such simple terms you’ll be able to start your low-carb journey right away.

Tasha simply knocked it out of the park with her debut book. She is breaking the “one-size-fits-all” mold that we have become programmed to believe is necessary for success on keto. She demonstrates that the path to health, wellness, and weight loss looks different for everyone; especially women. This is an invaluable resource for women who wish to go from merely surviving to abundantly thriving. I can’t recommend this book enough.

Keto: A Women’s Guide is going to be my new resource for women wanting to adopt the ketogenic diet. As a low-carb athlete, I appreciate that exercise and athletic training is covered in this invaluable guide, as this topic alone can be quite tricky to navigate as you venture from the world of high carb sports nutrition into the wonderful realm of keto.
