Publisher's Summary

Mark Sisson - author of the mega-best-seller The Primal Blueprint - unveils his groundbreaking ketogenic diet plan that resets your metabolism in 21 days so you can burn fat forever.

Mounting scientific research is confirming that eating a ketogenic diet could represent one of the greatest nutritional breakthroughs of our time - and that it might be the healthiest and most effective weight loss strategy ever. Going "keto" by eating high fat, low-to-moderate protein, and low-carb foods enables you to break free from the disastrous effects of carbohydrate dependency by resetting your metabolism and promoting metabolic flexibility - where your body learns to burns fat instead of sugar for energy, even when you go off plan.

Unlike many other ketogenic programs that require challenging restrictions and deprivation or offer misinformation, Mark Sisson, best-selling author of The Primal Blueprint and publisher of the number-one paleo blog MarksDailyApple.com, presents a unique two-step, scientifically validated 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. This process allows your body to learn to burn fat more efficiently, resulting in increased and sustained weight loss over the long term. It takes as little as 21 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 slip-ups. 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 over 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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Finally an easy to "digest" Keto Diet Guide!!!!

The Keto Reset Diet is hands down the best comprehensive Keto Guide out there!
overwhelming the amount of information that available on the web on the Keto Diet... Yet a lot of this information is many times too scientific for any bigger interested to comprehend. This why many that are just peeking into what the Ketogenic lifestyle consists of sometimes get discouraged even before even trying it out.

Living a Ketogenic Lifestyle my self for the the past 2 years: I still had some doubts as to some of the concepts and or ways to obtain a comprehensive understanding and
gain a sharper edge.

The Keto Reset Diet has definitely shed a lot of light! There are some books out there, but again, its hard to know which authors to pay closer attention to. When I heard Mark Sisson came out with a book, this was a no brainer. Mark has done such an amazing job of synthesizing the info needed in a way for anyone to understand. I

Great for beginners and for the more advanced Keto Masters, it provides a substantial amount of info that will give you and upgraded advantage!

Highly recommended! Thanks again Mark!

PDF not included

The author mentions an associated PDF numerous times throughout the book, but the only PDF that is included is a recipe PDF. Without the mentioned PDF you can't take the keto exam that is necessary or find all the calculations, etc....

Fairly good, but I expected more

I gave this a 5 star review for two reasons. First, Sisson has been a pioneer in the paleo/primal movement for fitness and nutrition, so he deserves credit for that irrespective of the content of this book. Second, keto has been life changing for me and I can't imagine even being able to stay healthy in the future outside of ketosis (at least in my case).

That said, I was a bit disappointed with the book. It's certainly worth the read (or listen) but Sisson is a bit late to the party on this one. Mercola, Asprey and many others have been publishing and posting on keto for a long time now. Granted, it's important for the keto movement to have prominent figures like Sisson state that he didn't buy into the movement but that eventually as the science started to stack up in favor of it, he tried it and found it to be incredible. That is a good story and important for others to come to know.

However, a few things were offsetting for me. The whole quiz approach to determine if one is ready to start keto seemed unwieldy and somewhat paternalistic. I realize that the book is directed at people that are new to keto, but perhaps that might have been appropriate 5 or 6 years ago when we didn't know as much about it. Second, the book was really just a surface view of keto. Granted, for its intended audience perhaps that is fine, but other than the discussion on cortisol I didn't really find anything new in this book that hasn't been covered at least as well in other books over the past 5 years.

One major upside for me was the author's view that it may be healthful to stay in ketosis longer term or even indefiniately. Mercola, Asprey Mutzel, and many others have taken the view that one must cycle in and out of ketosis. This "movement" started as the TKD or CKD with carb refeeds once or twice per week but has largely transitioned more to a seasonal way of eating (strict ketosis in winter and somewhat higher carb in summer). For those of us who feel great in ketosis year round, it was refreshing to hear something other than the standard "long term ketosis is dangerous". I think the proper approach should be that if ketosis works for you than stay in it, and if its not working optimally for you then try to cycle out or move to simply low carb.

At any rate, I expected a bit more from this book but I still consider it well worth the purchase.

Awesome Sauce!

I can't recommend this book enough. If you are just getting started with keto or an expert, you will learn something here. As an athlete, I have many questions regarding keto and every one of them was addressed in this book. Thank you Mark and Brad!

Fascinating

The most comprehensive discussion of Keto I’ve ever come across. It not only walks you through the significant health benefits of Keto it also gives great detail on how to achieve Keto. I will be buying the print book to revisit a lot of the topics as there is such a significant amount of great information.

No PDF

There is no PDF as the author mentioned several times in his book. The hard copy contains recipes and other valuable information that the audible doesn’t provide.

Other than the broken promise of meal, ideas, the main point of the book was crammed down your throat like an infomercial or a time share sales pitch.

Everyone should do this at least once in there lifetime...

Well written, difficult subject matter clearly explained, my wife and i are loving cooking together, recipes are worth it alone, this is a paradigm shift in the way you use food, I’m absolutely loving it. Clearly layer out, easy to follow, big time learning experience, and Mr Sisson has lived it, i’m all in...

Where is the PDF Download????

Would you consider the audio edition of The Keto Reset Diet to be better than the print version?

Does anyone know where to find the PDF download the book talks about again and again? Frustrating. Good book but if you cannot get all the reference material, makes it pretty useless to get the audio version of the book.

Like the content

I liked the content, though I haven't finished yet. annoyed by how often the narrator laughs as he reads. Sometimes, it makes sense, but most of the time it turns the tone of the context to patronizing or condescending. sometimes, it's not appropriate at all, since it doesn't even change the tone of the context.

THERE IS A PDF FILE!!!

What disappointed you about The Keto Reset Diet?

Thanks to Cynthia's review of The obesity code I found this "I keep seeing reviews on Audible stating "it would be nice to have the charts, forms, list, etc. the author keeps referring to". Yes they're included here! Log into Audible and look at your purchase list, and underneath the books that include a pdf you will find a link to click. You can then download reference material for your book."

Has The Keto Reset Diet turned you off from other books in this genre?

no - this one is pretty straight forward

Would you be willing to try another one of Brad Kearns’s performances?

yes but probably only with non-fiction books

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

This was a great book and easy to listen to on my evening walks and at the gym - I wish I had the PDF file before I finished the book but I have the PDF now!

Vital info, somewhat disappointing book

Hi. In the past I've never minded that Mark Sisson's books seemed to meander quite a lot, as well as containing vital information. Obvisously that can be more of a problem in an audio book where tables and so on aren't possible, and this audio book does suffer from this and would probalby be best servied in the print edition. I also do have a real problem with Brad Kearns' reading as a decision has been made where he has been allowed (or allowed himself) to regularly improvise the reading, lots of ums and ahs, deciding to add bits and pieces here and there we he comments on the text. Perhaps it's because as the co-author he wants to inject his own personality into the reading but I think it's terribly distracting.

Interesting stuff

The information in this book is great. One problem is not all of the stuff the narrator talks about is actually included in the download as he says it should be. All the recipes are there, but none of the tables he mentions. Fix this and the book is all 5 stars.

Lots of technical info about Keto...

A very technical book, a lot of content went over my head. Regardless, I'm keen to try the recipes.

This will nourish your brain

If you could sum up The Keto Reset Diet in three words, what would they be?

Eye-opening, motivating, concise

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Keto Reset Diet?

It's amazing to learn how conditioned we are to carbohydrates and how beneficial it is to revert to what previously was a normal diet for us humans.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes I was always looking for the next opportunity to listen to more

Any additional comments?

Go keto and change your life!

paleo centric look at Keto, including exercise

Of course, Mark Scisson is an authority on primal and healthy living. you would have to look far to find an author that practises what he preaches and have the results to back it up.

I looked the book, concise to the point and not as rigid as most diets.
