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, publisher of the Mark's Daily Apple paleo blog, presents a two-step 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 favor 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.

Compelled with curiosity stirred by a couple of friends who are following a ketogenic diet, I eagerly read this comprehensive introduction to the diet. The book covers the science behind the plan, offers recipes (that sound fantastic!) and addresses tips and troubleshooting.

What struck me throughout is how entrenched my ideas of nutrition are, probably thanks to a lifetime of Weight Watchers indoctrination (e.g., sugar and fat are bad, carbs from veggies and fruits--within reason--are good). Keto espouses a high fat, moderate protein and very low carbohydrate (20g a day if rather sedentary; 50g if active) formula as well as intermittent fasting (a compressed eating schedule). The carb limit is so low that, for the most part, a piece of fruit would send me over my carbohydrate limit for the day. The jury's out as to whether I will try this. A good book though!
