After months of hard work and my kitchen/household turned upside down, I am excited to reveal my latest book – The Zen Beach Diet and show you how to lose weight and gain your health at the same time.
The Best Diet
After Keto ruined my health, I went searching for something else that would enhance my health as well as give me the weight loss results I desired. The fast metabolism, thyroid supporting approach by Dr Ray Peat was the one.
What’s in the book?
It’s based on my experiences with the Dr Ray Peat style of eating and solves the many questions about what to eat, how much to eat, and exactly how to lose weight with this diet. You’ll learn how to formulate a meal, exact macros, calories and how to balance your starch and fat intake.
The Zen Beach Diet is a detailed guide of Kristy Alford’s experiences with the Dr Ray Peat style of eating.
After eating low carb/keto for 10 years, she realised it was no longer working. Weight was coming back on, she was feeling cold all the time and her hair started to fall out. Kristy sought further answers and found the work of Dr Ray Peat.
After researching, experimenting and eating this way for nearly four years now, Kristy has finally found her answers. It was about fine tuning the calorie level, balance of macros and types of food to maximise her health, metabolism and finally reach the weight loss goal she desired.
The book includes information, food guides, a how to build your own meal plan formula as well as a 7-day meal plan and new recipes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
Kristy says, “Many of the resources on Ray’s way of eating give the general guidelines, but no-one tells you specifically WHAT to eat and HOW MUCH to eat. This is where the Zen Beach Diet book fills the gap.”
It’s a fantastic start point to get you going. Then as you learn more, you adjust what you’re doing to suit your own body better.
Beautifully photographed by her husband and professional photographer Adrian Alford, it features a stunning collection of beaches from around the world.
Enjoy the amazing view as you learn how to finally get your health and weight on track and into the Zen Beach vibe.
Priced at only AU$9.95 (US$6.65, £5.15), it’s a PDF file of 34 mb and is available for immediate download now.

“Ray’s information and education is amazing but I could never find it all in just the one spot, so this book is amazing!”– E.D.
“Yep I have bought this recipe book and can safely say we are given fabulous recipes with lots to eat. I feel very well fed plus the gorgeous photography images are sunny and cheery!”– Lisa W.
“You are to be commended on putting the basics in one easy reference for sure! This isn’t easy to simplify at all! Very, very helpful” Marcine P.
“I am really enjoying the Zen Beach Diet. Great info in it and easy to understand.“ J.V.
“I’ve been trying to follow a pro-metabolic diet for years but it didn’t click until I started working with Kristy and reading her books – the Zen Beach Diet is SO simple and easy to understand and makes me feel like I can do this. With Kristy’s help, I’ve been able to get my temperatures back to where they should be and feel more energized. Thank you, Kristy!” – Rachel B.
“What a gorgeous book, it’s such a delight to read and use.The pictures are amazing, it’s beautifully written and easy to follow.I love all of Kristy Alford’s books and I think The Zen Beach Diet is her best book so far! Very inspiring! – K.D.
“I recently purchased the Zen Beach Diet book and Sweet Treats. Both of these books contain great recipes and break down the macro nutrients for each meal/snack. When I’m out of ideas for what to make, I pull out your books for easy meals and snacks that also hit my nutrient needs (especially protein!) I also recommend both books to my clients because you follows the principles I teach. Recipe development is NOT my favorite thing to do, which is why I am so grateful for the diligent, hard work you’ve put into these resources, Kristy. Thank you!”
“While I am pretty new to the Peaty way of eating, (about 2 months now,) I have all three of your Peaty books and am having great success with gradual changes and love your perspective of watching the fat and calories so I don’t blimp out!
So far, I have lost 10 pounds, feel so much less bloated and never felt like I was on a diet but rather quite satisfied. I can totally eat this way the rest of my life and my only hunger is to learn more about this way of eating.
Truly though it has been MOST helpful to ‘see’ the Ray Peat plan simply laid out in your Zen book with the information and daily food plan. Can’t say enough how much this has helped me and I always refer back to it.
After on and off again dieting and interests in nutrition, etc., since my teens, I can wholeheartedly say, I’ve finally found it…what really works to keep me healthy, balanced & happy.” – Jen H
“I also want to thank you for writing an excellent book. It really explains things well. I guess I didn’t realize one needed to eat that much fruit at a meal.
I think as simple as your food measurement method might sound, it is brilliant. It does make this way of eating easier. I don’t want to have to count my macros.” – J.F.
Ray Peat weight loss is elusive for many, mainly due to following wrong advice. Hopefully by the end of this article you may figure out where you are going wrong.
Interesting reading in the Ray Peat groups recently and the study where a bunch of guys were given 6,000 calories and no exercise. It demonstrated that while their metabolism increased, so too did their fat and other, not so great, health markers.
While the study was extreme, I think it was a great example of how too many people emphasise the increase of calories as the only way to get to health and a higher metabolism using Dr Ray Peat principles. (Anything under 2,500 calories was deemed to be an eating disorder! What?)
I had told dear friend Maryanne about the progress of my book and she listened intently like the loyal and beautiful friend that she is. She has heard about this book and the way I eat for about two years now, so perhaps it is sounding more like blah, blah, blah to her now. I can’t help it though as everyone is trying to figure out how to lose weight fast, without a thought about how it may affect their health.
Anyway, so we moved on to her news. She proceeded to tell me about a naturopath she saw who told her about these weight loss drops to suppress your hunger and the diet you eat of only 500 calories.
I stopped in my tracks and my jaw dropped open. Involuntarily I started shaking my head and blurted out, “Nooooooo!”
