The best-selling author and woman behind the popular site MariaMindBodyHealth has developed a 30-day meal plan to kickstart a keto diet. 

Author and keto diet expert Maria Emmerich has written several keto books touting the benefits of the diet, but this one in particular is meant to guide readers through the meal planning and cleansing process.

Emmerich provides the foundation for fully embracing a ketogenic lifestyle with an overview of the benefits (eliminates acid reflux and improves brain health, for instance) and how to stock your pantry properly by eliminating sugar and high-carb foods and focusing on fatty versus lean protein.

This primer on changing your lifestyle offers a recipe index along with 160 illustrated recipes for making everything from salad dressings, cashew milk and seasonings to meals like hunan beef-stuffed bell peppers.
