You have found a great forum to do lots of reading and research on the Ketogenic Diet. The research and media section is what drew me to this forum years ago.
I donít know the author of the book you read but she has a good background. You might want to check her recommendations against the new Keto guide at DietDoctor. Many tips there, recipes, and links to the science.
If you stick at or below 20g total carbs in beginning, it is hard to go wrong. The clinic plan I follow does not introduce macros, or limiting protein until weight loss slows, keep it simple to start. A woman I know from our local support group at Duke had WLS and finally found long term success with Keto. She has a huge following on YouTube, FB and at DietDoctor. Her "failure story" on YT is inspiring, it may help you to hear how she found Keto after WLS and now maintains a healthy weight. Others on her Keto cooking FB page had WLS.
Look around all the various sub-forums and ask questions.
All the best,
