Mounting scientific research suggests that eating a ketogenic diet could represent one of the greatest nutritional breakthroughs of our time—and that it might be the healthiest and most effective weight-loss strategy ever. Going “keto” by eating in a high-fat, moderate-protein, and low-carb pattern enables you to break free from the disastrous effects of carbohydrate dependency. Instead, you’ll reset your metabolism to promote metabolic flexibility—where your body learns to burn fat instead of sugar for energy, even when you take a break from the plan. Many ketogenic programs require challenging restrictions and deprivation or offer misinformation, but Mark Sisson, bestselling author of The Primal Blueprint and publisher of the number one paleo blog MarksDailyApple.com, presents a unique, two-step, scientifically validated approach for going keto the right way. He first reveals the real secret to rapid and sustained weight loss, which is in becoming “fat-adapted” before entering full nutritional ketosis, a process that allows your body to learn to burn fat more efficiently. It takes as little as twenty-one days to reprogram your metabolism to burn fat for fuel by ditching processed grains, sugars, and refined vegetable oils in favour of nutrient-dense, high-fat, primal/paleo foods—and you’ll see immediate results. Next, you’ll fine-tune with Intermittent Fasting and then foray into full ketogenic eating for a further weight-loss boost and improved health. With The Keto Reset Diet, you can eat to total satisfaction by enjoying rich, high-satiety foods, and even weather occasional slipups. You’ll use keto as a lifelong tool to stay trim, healthy, energetic, and free from the disastrous health conditions caused by the typical American diet. With step-by-step guidance, daily meal plans, and a recipe section with more than 100 delicious keto-friendly recipes, this is the definitive guide to help the keto beginner or the experienced health enthusiast understand the what, why, and how to succeed with ketogenic eating.
