Here are some great recipe ideas to play with. I seldom crave carbs any more, but I know you might... Be creative, make these recipes your own!



I started Keto 2 yrs ago. I have now been Carnivore since November. I feel way better without the veg and dairy. I have PCOS and have learned thru my weight loss journey that I can not have carbs with PCOS. I was morbidly obese when I started. Keto worked to drop a lot of weight because I was all of a sudden eating so healthy but then when my body got used to the way I was eating my digestive issues started again and I started gaining weight again. As soon as I started Carnivore weight loss started back up and digestive problems went away and I am almost off my high blood pressure meds now. I always had thought red meat didn't agree with me and have now learned that it was always the veg I was eating on the side, not the meat. I have lost a total of 176 lbs as of today and still losing. Your videos are amazing and have taught me so much and helped me get where I am today. Thank you so much!!

Congratulations, Dr. Berry. Well done! If you have had a feeling that you weren't necessarily getting the best medical advice from your MD, this book will explain why! Although I was familiar with almost all of these medical myths due to my own personal awakening several years ago, it was so exhilarating to see them listed and organized in such a fashion. This book is self-published! Which, to me, means that it is not adulterated by a publisher's wishes to water down the message and/or be politically correct in it's presentation. Dr. Berry pulls no punches and it shows in the hard-hitting information presented here. If you see an MD, then you need to read this book! Dr. Berry has asked his readers to alert him to any typos or poor grammar and to suggest any other "lies" to him for his next book. I'm going to do this as soon as I publish this review. Good for you, Dr. Berry. I'm very much looking forward to your next book!

In simple language, Dr. Ken fills us in on how the medical system has gotten to the point that it is in today, where doctors are taught mostly to treat disease and illness, but are not taught how to help their patients stay healthy. He tells us of many of the lies we are told that many doctors don't even know are lies! He goes on to tell us how we can do a better job of of taking care of ourselves, and prevent disease, but not necessarily by following the same rules that doctors would tell us to follow. Very non-technical, but he encourages us to research for ourselves how to stay healthy and provides us with resources that we can read or study. There are a few typos, but not enough to detract from the important information that he is presenting. All in all, a very good read!

S. Williams, Amazon Book Review

So many ah ha moments while reading this unbiased strait forward no BS book that everyone should read. He tries hard not to vilify doctors, but explains how it's difficult for any person to keep up with all of the latest medical research while also seeing patients, running a practice, and just generally trying to live life. I also am deeply suspicious of government, medications and the doctors who prescribe them willy-nilly. I wholeheartedly believe in the paleo/low carb way of eating and believe the SAD is a huge part of today's medical problems, so he didn't have to try hard to sell me on that. Dr. Berry presents facts that disprove long standing Medical Myths. He doesn't mince words and gets to the point in a informative and engaging manner. I highly recommend this book.

I was introduced to Dr Berry by a dear friend. Let me just say his no nonsense approach to healthcare has allowed me to lose 115lbs in 13 months. He lets you know it’s ok to question your doctor’s medical decisions for your health and your life. He encourages open conversations about health and nutrition. You can’t believe everything you hear or read from the MSM. I recommend you buy his book AND follow his YouTube and Facebook page. There is lots of info in all of these places. I have now found a local keto friendly doctor who has helped me on my journey and my husband and dropped his A1C an entire point in 5 months and lost 35lbs. My daughter has lost 52! Thanks Dr Berry for changing my family for the better!

BtoomBS80, Amazon Book Review

Dr. Berry's approach in the book is pretty much how he relates to his viewers in his videos on his YouTube Channel. His direct, honest, and humorous approach of explaining misconceptions, false information, and the lack of transparency by those in the medical world (or by those who are just plain ill-informed) comes through in each chapter. His intent is very plain throughout the book – he is not trying to throw the medical community under the bus – not at all! But rather his purpose is to inform and educate the public as well as to challenge the medical community. Emphasizing that our trusted physicians must stay up to date with the latest research, studies, and ongoing education – both in their fields and outside of their field of expertise – is something which Dr. Berry does very respectfully. He wants patients to have very open, honest, and good working relationships with their doctors. I highly recommend his new and updated book!
