1. KetoDiet Challenge

Whether you want to drop those holiday pounds or simply want to feel and look great, don't forget to join the KetoDiet Challenge! You can learn more and join us for free here when there is a new challenge sign up - a giveaway is always included! :-)

I always receive hundreds of submissions and I can't promise that I'll reply to every single one of your emails but I'll do my best. You will all receive an auto-reply which means you are in!

2. KetoDiet Guide

If you want to learn about the ketogenic diet in a nutshell, check out my Keto Diet Guide and Ketogenic Diet FAQs. A detailed guide to the ketogenic diet can be found in my apps and in my premium diet plans!

3. Ketogenic Food Pyramid

You can grab my keto food pyramid that will help you stick with your diet and make the right food choices. Just like my recipes, this pyramid is primal-friendly and if you skip the dairy section, it's also suitable for a paleo diet.

4. Free Ketogenic Diet Plans

You can download my free ketogenic diet plans. They all include a quick guide to the ketogenic diet, detailed ketogenic diet plans and all the recipes included. There are currently three (keto & paleo, keto & primal and keto & vegetarian) and I've been working on more!

5. Keto Calculator

Following a ketogenic diet doesn't guarantee weight loss. It helps to keep an eye on your fat intake and use a good macronutrient calculator. The closer you get to your target weight, the more important that becomes. Additionally, you need to ensure that you're eating sufficient amount of protein to stay satiated and prevent muscle loss.

Our keto calculator will give you recommendations depending on your goal (weight maintenance, weight loss or weight gain). The calculations we used are based on widely accepted research and recommendations made by Dr. Volek and Dr. Phinney. We put a lot of effort to ensure that unlike some other calculators, you get sensible results that will help you with your diet.

6. KetoDiet Books

I have authored 3 keto cookbooks (more coming soon!) to help you kick-start your keto diet:

  • The KetoDiet Cookbook
  • Fat Bombs Book
  • Quick Keto Meals in 30 Minutes or Less

All are available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Book Depository and other book stores.

10. Low-Carb & Keto Experts

It has been a busy year for us and my inbox has been flooded with requests for personalised advice. I don't offer consulting services but want everyone get the best advice possible. Apart from the freely available resources on my blog, I decided to create the Low-Carb & Keto Experts resource to help you get advice from qualified professionals.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Hi Martina,
Nice app, I like the main stream approach.
I would like to be in contact with you by email or skype because we are writing about low carb and keto from a scientific perspective and would be interested to collaborate with your site/app.
Let us know how to proceed or send us a email.
Best regards,


Hi Eduardo, the best way to communicate would be our support/contact us page: ketodietapp.com/Blog/contact


I started Keto about 1 month ago but have a # of questions. Would love to hear others opinions on the following.
Apple Cider Vinegar (I take 2-3 tbsp/morning)
Tumeric shot (2 tsp tumeric + pepper w/water)
Metamucil (1 tsp/day w/water)
Hidden Valley Ranch (usually use it on my salads) - better option?
Chicken - it is a low fat protein so I tend to go with beef but what if you eat it with the skin? Does it become a good option?
Turkey burger/bacon - avoid and go with the beef/pork versions because they are fattier right?
Best Foods Mayo? Eat or Pass?
Nuts - Raw or salted?


Hello....I have fibromyalgia and I'm limited to swimming as my exercise. So I'm looking forward to shedding fat with your diet.
Years ago I did the Carbohydrate Addicts Diet and lost 35 pounds...and kept it off for ten years. So I know low carb works. Its just getting my lazy butt to do it.


I started itching just over a week into the keto diet, any ideas on how to relieve it and what the cause might be?


Hi Kate, this could be keto rash. If you google "keto rash", you will find tips on how to cure it. I hope this helps!


I am very interested in starting the Ketogenic diet, which of the keto cookbooks would you recommend I buy first? I have bought many different books for different diets and I don't want to buy another one only to find it is the wrong one .
Thank you.


Hi Rahab, I think that my Quick Keto book may be the best way to start: ketodietbooks.com (keep in mind it is mostly a recipe book)
Also, there are several free resources - you can find the list here: Welcome to KetoDiet!
I hope this helps!


Please put me on your waiting list for the ketogenic Android app


Hi Janinemarie, we started beta testing a few months ago but we plan to release the Android app in the next 1-2 months. I hope this helps!


Hi Martina, I have hypothyroid and my TSH levels are way above normal. I tried your diet and week 1 I actually gained 3 pounds. I followed it strictly. Can you suggest what I ma doing wrong? Should I add in a little bit of carbs? I am a vegetarian. Please advise.


Hi Divya, there could be a few reasons for that. I personally follow a low-carb, mildly ketogenic diet and I'm maintaining a healthy weight (also hypothyroid). Here are some tips that might help: How To Low Carb: 15+ Common Weight Loss Mistakes And here is a sample diet plan for vegetarian keto: 2 Week Vegetarian Keto Diet Plan


Hi Martina, I've been following Leto for a week but it's been up and down with weight loss what do you think I'm doing wrong ...


Hi Jenni, check out this post: How To Low Carb: 15+ Common Weight Loss Mistakes Hope this helps!


So happy I stumbled across your blog. So much great information 😊 Eating the same food can get a little boring so I'm excite to try some of your recipes from your other posts!


Greetings, As I do not own an iPad rather a RCA tablet, would the KetoDiet iPad App work on this device?


Hi Zach, if that's Android, it's our next step. We have a Basic Android version (doesn't include the planner) and we are working on the fully featured KetoDiet App for Android.


I've got your iPad app and can't wait for the iPhone version that will have the planner! I also pre-ordered your cookbooks and use your keto calculator all the time. Thank you for all you do 😊


Thank you for you kind words Debbie!


Didn't know if you were aware of this but bc I pre-ordered your cookbook on Amazon I was able to order the Kindle version at a reduced rate of $3 and I downloaded it right away! 😉 😉 I am so excited. How awesome is that? It's an awesome collection and I still can't wait for the paper version. I was even the first to review it which never happens to me either! So congrats on your book and nice work! 👏👏👏👏👏


Thank you soooo much Marybeth! I really appreciate your kind words about my cookbook and me! I will soon have 6 diet plans available to download from my book page: (ketodietbooks.com/KetoDietCookbook.aspx) together with an allergy table 😊
