  1. Seems like your plans are catered to females. Are there any adjustments for males?

    • Hi Ming! Men can follow the plan too, they just need less support from carb ups!

  2. Hi I’m looking for keto soft foods. I’m getting teeth pulled and getting dentures so I can’t do regular keto food. Any segestions?

  3. My son and his wife started eating Keto 3 months ago. They both lost 45lbs. A year ago his doctor told him that his liver was so bad that he will need a liver transplant in 5 years. He went for his doctor appointment to see how his liver is doing. His doctor told him that he doesn’t know what he’s doing, but is liver is clear and healthy. Thank god and your recipes and info on Keto. I’m thinking of eating Keto.

    • That is incredible, Karen! I’m so incredibly happy that this eating style could help your son. Welcome to the community!

  4. Is there an entry where you talk about why you started eating Keto? My husband and I started it to lose weight but have noticed other good results, and my daughter has an autoimmune disorder that I’m thinking Keto may help alleviate. Just curious. Thank you! Great recipes on here.

  5. Thanks for including my stir fry recipe in this great roundup. Everyone needs fast and easy recipes! Will share on social media.
