Looking for a diet that makes you feel amazing AND helps you lose weight? Is it time to turn the health debate on its head? The weight loss industry booms and people get fatter but thankfully there is now a groundswell of interest in an alternative to the traditional formula of eat less, move more. An alternative that allows us to work with our bodies, rather than against them. An alternative that gives us robust health, mental focus and freedom from cravings and insatiable hunger. Oh, and you get to eat butter as well.... Author and world renowned podcaster, Jimmy Moore has combined forces yet again with Dr Eric Westman to write a book that is sure to become one of the seminal works on nutritional ketosis. Written in a practical, accessible style, this book provides the reader with everything they need to adopt this lifestyle change and way of eating. Many practical questions are answered and the exciting ways in which nutritional ketosis is used to treat a wide range of diseases is presented. Combining practical advice, first hand experience and a wealth of information, this book is a necessary read for anyone who is seriously looking for a way out of diet failure to good health.
I am so glad that I found this book. I have been folowing a paleo diet for two months with minimal weight loss. After reading this i realised that I am super sensitive to carbs. Although my diet was heathy I was consuming too many carbs and too much protein to be in fat burning mode. I was aso afraid of fat! which probably stemmed from twelve months on a high carb vegan diet where the mantra was 'the fat you eat is the fat you wear'. I loved the way that the book was written as it was easy to undersrand and enjoyable
I rarely write reviews on books even though I read so much. But I was prompted to write a review on this book because it really clearly made a good case for LCHF lifestyle. This was the first book I read on the subject whilst having read a number of books on low carb diets/lifestyle. I find this book both easy to understand and appears scientifically sound. Personally I have already benefitted from incorporating the principles in this book even though it has only been 2 weeks.
Very interesting and informative book that is easy to read. Written without a plethora of technical jargon the book is able to be read and absorbed quickly.
Keto clarity challenges the status quo about what we eat. I personally have adopted the method of eating and have been pleased with my fat loss but most importantly I feel full all afternoon which is when I used to crave sugar. I very rarely have cravings anymore. I am into week 6!
Easy to understand, full explanation of Keto. Also has a benefit of the contribution of many practitioners, based on not just theories, but working, real life experiences. Love the recipes and the 21 day starter program. I highly recommend this book
Having read a number of books now on Ketogenic diets and having ventured into nutritional ketosis, mainly to enjoy the benefits of doing endurance events without carb supplementation, I have found this book to provide that answers to a number of the questions I have raised about the 'how to' and 'what is happening' on my journey. Thank you Jimmy and Eric, a well written and easy to read reference book.
Ordered the book early this year just waiting on delivery down under. Purchased the kindle version and was not disappointed. Thought provoking, maybe we all have been brainwashed for 25 years. I really have enjoyed reading this book well done Jimmy
