Hi Friends, this year I’ve been deeply immersed in writing an exciting new book called The Keto Reset Diet with my primal sidekick Mark Sisson. It’s about the recently popular ketogenic diet, which represents the highest sophistication of the primal/paleo/low-carb eating strategy. The essence of “keto” is to become free from dependency on regular high carbohydrate meals as your main source of energy, and improve your ability to burn internal sources of energy—namely stored body fat as well as ketones. Ketones are made in the liver to burn in place of glucose when you restrict dietary carbohydrates. Going keto helps you easily remove excess body fat, improve cognitive function, minimize disease risk, and improve both athletic performance for both endurance and strength endeavors.
The benefits of keto are like that of fasting, where your body becomes more efficient with energy production and cellular repair, and you improve overall health, immune function, cognitive function and longevity. Keto allows you to eat satisfying meals that are high in nutritious fats and low in carbohydrates–minimizing insulin production and stabilizing appetite and energy levels. This honors our hunter-gatherer ancestral diet of meat, fish, fowl, eggs, vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds.
In contrast, the Standard American Diet (SAD) is wildly excessive in refined carbohydrates (bread, rice, cereal, pasta, sugars, sweetened beverages). This causes excess insulin production and free radical production in the body, inhibits you from burning stored body fat, and sets the stage for disease patterns like Type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart diease, and cancer.
If you’re interested in healthy eating, reducing excess body fat, and escaping the epidemic of diet-related disease in modern life, you might appreciate this read that takes you from start to finish for how to clean up your diet and start enjoying the benefits of what we call metabolic flexibility.
Right now the book is shooting up the charts and is in the top 50 overall on amazon, even before the official release date of October 3. We announced a special pre-order bonus of 4 digital—details about the offer here.
