Keto Launches

The ketogenic world is a fast paced environment with lots of new keto books and programs being launched all the time.

These resources are incredibly helpful when we try to adopt a ketogenic lifestyle and to help us succeed long term with this way of eating. At the same time many keto friendly products are being developed.

Keto Launches

We started this section on our website to get the best out of all these developments.

We publish information about new launches of books, programs and products as and when we become aware of them.

​Information Overload Disclaimer

Only check out these launches if, like me, you like to know what is new on the market. Don’t let it overwhelm you though. Knowledge is power, but too much information can create confusion.

​About Keto Launches

The Ketogenic diet has become really popular.

As we all know it is not a new diet, it has been around for many decades. What is new is the way we are thinking about our food and our growing understanding of how our food affect our health.

Much research has been done over the last few decades that proof that fat is not the culprit, but our problem is sugar and grains.

Many health experts, scientists, and doctors are starting to realize and acknowledge that to be healthy and slim, our first priority needs to be what we eat and are writing about it.

There are also many ordinary people who have adopted this way of eating and are spreading the word.

As a result of the growing popularity of the fat fueled paradigm, more and more ketogenic books and programs are released.

The aim of this page is to announce the launch of any ketogenic book or program as I become aware of the launch.

The objective is to announce the launch or pre-launch of these books and programs.

I am not necessarily endorsing them and in many instances I will not be able to read or study them prior to the announcement.


Keto launch criteria

The criteria I consider before announcing a launch here are:

  • mail-forward
    ​Supports the Keto lifestyle. (The ketogenic diet is a very personalized diet and I don’t subscribe to any narrow version of it.)
  • mail-forward
    ​Adds value to the discourse. (I know this is also somewhat subjective.)
  • mail-forward

    Provides step by step instructions to make the change from glucose to fat as fuel.

  • mail-forward

    Recipe books by well-known keto bloggers, experts or new comers whose books look interesting.


​This will develop over time, but the main categories are:

  • mail-forward
    ​​Recipe books.
  • mail-forward
    ​Programs that can assist us to adopt to or maintain a ketogenic lifestyle.
  • mail-forward

    ​Books that improve our knowledge of how our bodies are fueled.
