Keto Recipe Books to Price Track

1/12/2019

Introduction

The Ketogenic diet has been around for quite some time, with its origin difficult to place. It was originally developed to treat epilepsy in children. Medical research has found that restricting the carbohydrate intake of kids with epilepsy forced the liver to produce ketones which then fuel the brain instead of glucose. Something about this process reduces the frequency and severity of seizures.

Many people have found that putting their body in a state of ketosis makes it easier for them to manage their blood sugar, burn fat, and feel better overall. The keto diet has exploded in popularity in the past few years and 2019 looks to be accelerating even more by looking at Google Trends which shows search volume and interest for a given term.

This is a pretty exceptional growth in interest over time, which is a strong indicator that the diet actually works. It's great that so many people are discovering the keto diet and finding it helpful, but there are some downsides. When interest raises this quickly, a lot of businesses try to jump on the bandwagon and make some money off of the trend. Using Penny Parrot to fact check and set alerts will help you save money and protect yourself from price gouging.

We can see that the 3rd party new and used prices fluctuate a lot. Using Penny Parrot to set an alert will help you catch a great deal on this flagship book. Price watches that monitor the "used price" are the most rare on Penny Parrot, but for books it makes sense. The value in a book is its content, a few dings and folds does not preclude you from getting good use out of a book.
