Publisher's Summary

The ketogenic diet is one of the simplest menus around. To start, you just need to do one thing: eat high fat, moderate protein, and low carb. Eating a high-fat diet leads your body into a state called ketosis. In ketosis, your body will burn fat for energy, leading to incredible weight loss benefits.

Everyone has a different body, so you’ll need to pay attention to the signs and listen to your body to determine when you’re in ketosis. In general, your body can reach ketosis very quickly. Ideally, if you commit to the diet and don’t snack on carbs, you should enter ketosis within one or two days.The fastest way to enter ketosis is by fasting. By not eating anything with caloric value for a 24-hour period, the body will begin ketosis to find enough energy. If you break your fast with a high-fat, low-carbohydrate meal, you will be able to keep your body in ketosis going forward. In this audiobook, I'll show you everything you need to know about the ketogenic diet.

Here is what you'll learn....

  • The basics of the ketogenic diet
  • A step-by-step guide
  • The benefits and dangers of the ketogenic diet
  • Common keto mistakes
  • Common keto questions
  • And as a bonus.... 30 exclusive easy-to-follow ketogenic recipes

Be the smart person you are and make the wise decision today.

Good content not so good delivery at times

While the content of this book was very informative and detailed considering the brevity of it, there were issues with narration during parts of the reading. Most notably in chapter 7 and 14, at times it seemed there was a word salad going on (pun intended!!) At one point the narrator actually said something about doing the reading incorrect and then restarted herself. At other times the sentences were jumbled or it was almost as if they skipped certain words or even sentences altogether. Since I did not purchase the written book I cannot say for sure but would assume that these errors are not in this form. Based on this assumption if these errors were corrected in the audio form I would give it a 4.5 to 5 star rating easily.

Is this a Joke? This is a word salad of nonsense!

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Is this a Joke? This audio book largely a word salad of nonsense! It sounds like someone hit the auto thesaurus button and never went back to check if it came out in a way that makes sense. Case in point:
At 2:50 into chapter 9 the narrator says “in case getting more fit is your inspiration of doing a Keto devour fewer calories by then it is decidedly recommended that you watch your total sugars and net starches. When you participate in a ketone eating routine and get yourself hungry you can check your yearnings by eating nuts, nutty spread, cheddar and seeds. Do whatever it takes not to perplex your need to eat with your need to eat.”
I am not kidding, that is a word for word quote! This is just one example! Whoever produced this audiobook should be embarrassed! Where in the chain of events was there supposed to be some quality control?
This review is about the audio book only. I have not seen the printed book.

Has Keto Diet: A Complete Guide for Beginners turned you off from other books in this genre?

No.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brooke Pillifant?

It is not the narrator’s fault that this book is so poorly produced. It is the sound editor, the producer, and the quality control officer who should hang their heads in shame.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

disappointment

Any additional comments?

I recommend that Audible pull this book from the catalog until it is fixed.

Highly recommended

Excellent, short and to the point. I rarely give five stars, but it’s the best book, you'll spend on a audio (I did Audible, but I’ll also buy the book to get the references easily ).
