If you’ve never tried the ketogenic diet, it can seem intimidating and intense. Before our test kitchen started churning out recipes for things like cookie dough fat bombs and bacon-wrapped keto meatloaf, we had a lot of questions. How many carbohydrates is too many? Is fat really that good for you? Also, WTF is a fat bomb?

We got answers to all of our questions from our keto coach, Lara Clevenger, R.D., of TheKetoQueens.com, and with her guidance, we created a 21-Day Keto Plan and a cookbook to go along with it: Keto For Carb Lovers. It’s in-depth and comprehensive and filled with 100+ delicious recipes. But if you’re not ready to commit to three full weeks, don’t worry. We’ve got you covered.
