THE FIRST DEDICATED WEIGHT-LOSS BOOK BASED ON THE KETOGENIC DIET—THE ORIGINAL, SCIENTIFICALLY DEVELOPED LOW-TO-NO-CARB DIET
Losing weight the healthy way means losing fat—and there’s no better diet for that than the ketogenic diet! With the simple program in this book, readers are guaranteed to lose weight by eating a rich variety of whole foods that are high in fat, moderate in protein, and very low in or free of carbs. This proven approach to eating transforms one into a fat-burning machine by changing how the brain gets energy and the body dissolves fat cells.
There’s no need to count calories or obsess over portion sizes on the ketogenic diet because the highs and lows of hunger that one feels on a carb-rich diet simply don’t occur. The plan in this book will make the reader’s body automatically desire the correct amount of food for their needs and feel fully satisfied without ever overeating. The ketogenic diet has been helping followers successfully lose weight and shed fat since the 1800s and since it’s eveloped by experts, Ketogenic is more effective than fad diets like Paleo that have untested, user-concocted guidelines.
The added benefits of a low-carbohydrate diet can’t be overstated. Studies increasingly point to their potential for preventing a variety of diseases, including Parkinson’s, diabetes, and some forms of cancer. Despite the common misconception about eating whole fatty foods, replacing carbohydrates with healthful fats reduces the risk of heart disease and has positive effects on insulin regulation and glycemic control.
