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.

FIND YOUR PDF!

Any additional comments?

Like many of you I was very confused about how to access this "pdf" they kept referring to. I sought out to contact the authors of the book and in their "contact us" section was the following link to instruction on how to access your pdf...

Much easier to do this on a computer, but works on mobile too. Hope this was helpful!

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.

It took me forever to figure it out but there is a PDF. I downloaded the book on my iPhone and even when I tried to look on the mobile site I couldn't find out where I could download the PDF. So I tried my tablet and went to library on audible.com and found it there!

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.

Exceptional book and narration

Mark Sisson has quickly become one of my favorite health-related thought leaders and authors of such topics. The Keto Reset Diet is a masterful outline that delivers the foundational science of Keto that nutritional buffs are looking for, along with simple, practical applications making it palatable (no pun intended) for lay-readers. After a number of failed attempts at tackling ketosis, this book has helped me understand and apply the steps for long-terms success on keto - I am now 4 weeks into the Keto-Diet and it has never felt more sustainable! The writing is fun, natural and often humorous - making you forget you’re reading a book about hard-hitting nutritional science.

Of course any audiobook wouldn’t earn 5 stars across the board without top-notch narration, and Brad Kearns delivers in spades here too. The inflection and cadence flows as naturally as a conversation with a trusted friend, making it an easy and thoroughly enjoyable listen. Well done!

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...

A Little Sketchy

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It's a little Sketchy that Brad mentions a PDF that will come with the book. Even when you read the description it mentions that anything that should be included with the audio book will be in you audible library. It's not. I also messaged Brad Kearns (who is btw a really good narrator) and Mark on Instragram and did not get a response. No offence but Brad is only connected with 1K+ people on IG and I'm sure he's not overwhelmed by messages.

In terms of the book I like it so far but I'm hesitant to finish it now because if I hear Brad Kearns say "with the pdf" I'll scream.

I would in fact like my money back because I am only on Chapter 4 and really feel like I am missing out on an important and special part of the entire book. I should have known better buying this type of book via an audio version but I am commuting and have recently gotten into audio books. Ehh.. so frustrating that no one will address the PDF aspect of this entire thing.

Have you listened to any of Brad Kearns’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Brad's good. He is easy to listen to, adds in what appears to be his own comments from time to time.

Any additional comments?

Dear Amazon & Audible - the narration and author commit to provide a PDF with the book and they do not. Go through the reviews - you will see many other people facing the same issue. It's not good because I will never buy a food or health related book again on Audible because I will always feel like I am missing out on important elements.

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!

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.

Excellent book, good, useful content.

Really valuable book. However the narration got really tedious at times, with the rising and falling intonation at the end of sentences, like stating something very obvious.

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.

Great book and life changing

I had been keto / hflc for a few weeks and was just getting back into running. I truly believe in the science of this methodology and it is sustainable and rewarding. yes there are sacrifices but no where near as many as you get with the typical low-cost fat standard diet the dietary regulations throw at you. carbs are sugars end of and sugar makes you crave food and turns to fat. good day on the other hand makes you thin and all food cravings diminish. it really does work!

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?

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.
