Chiquis has been telling her fans about her experiences with the keto diet since 2018, and now she will be sharing delicious and healthy recipes with the world. This is the star's second book, which follows the release of her 2015 memoir, Forgiveness. This time around she is not sharing more secrets about her life, but giving fans a closer look at what goes on in her kitchen.

The cover is so gorgeous!

Not only did she reveal when the book is coming out and the gorgeous cover, but she also shared her inspiration behind it. "Through this journey, I’ve learned that being fit is not about conforming to a specific look or size; it is about creating a healthy lifestyle and feeling great all around," she wrote. "This is what this program will help you to do. It will help you how to embrace what’s already amazing about your body and build on it, so you can strut your stuff with the confidence you deserve. And by the way.. this is not your average keto book. We will not be counting calories or macros. We will not be peeing on sticks. And we will not be beating ourselves up if we aren’t in a state of ketosis 24/7."

She added: "This is keto done my way, and for all my fellow chingonas who don’t mind bending the rules, but want to reap the benefits of a happy and healthy lifestyle. Let’s do this!"

Before this announcement, Chiquis was already giving her fans a taste of the keto lifestyle.

She embraced the "Chi-Keto" brand by sharing short videos on YouTube of herself preparing some keto-friendly meals and snacks. Chiquis knows that limiting yourself with strict diets can make life feel a little bland, so it's important that she has found something that works for her and is now sharing it with the world in her book.

A year after she started the diet, she does look amazing.

The ketogenic diet focuses on a low-carb, high-fat diet, where people get most of their calories from their protein intake. It is said to lower blood sugar and insulin levels, causing the body's metabolism to focus on burning stored fat. We're sure Chiquis will put a Mexican spin on the keto diet and we look forward to checking out her tequila, tacos, and tortilla recipes when the book comes out in April 2020.
