Great subject matter but a terrible book

I've been following a ketogenic diet for about 7 months now. I could write a few pages on the number of positive benefits that I've benefited from by eating this way -- it's literally changed everything in my life from my mood, waistline, hair and fingernails, energy level, memory recall, cognitive function, biomarkers, blood lipid tests, etc. I understand that it may not work for everyone but it has been remarkable for me and I'll likely follow some version of it for the rest of my life.

I also lift weights and have done so for several decades. I decided after a few months doing keto that even if I lost lean muscle mass that I could live with that given the changes that I was seeing on the diet. But, to my surprise, I found better gains via keto after having been on it for about three months.

So, when I saw the title and description of this book I immediately purchased it as I was hoping to better understand some basis for my own experiences concerning this subject. Unfortunately, the book was almost a complete let down for me. I nearly stopped listening after the first five minutes as it seemed that the audiobook had almost been published as some sort of joke. I got better toward the end although I'm not a fan of cyclical or targeted ketogenic diets as I believe that carb refeeds take one out of ketosis for too long and that this takes away from the benefits I believe are associated with this diet/lifestyle.

There are so many great ketogenic resources available and many of them are free on youtube: Dr. Volek, Dr. Attia, Dr. Phinney, Dominic D'Agustino, Dr. Wahls, etc. Even Jimmy Moore's book was quite good.

I really wanted to get something out of this book. For starters, I think the author would have been better served by hiring a professional narrator and to remove the various references to becoming "Greek gods" and similar "bro" messaging.

Excellant...Buy the Book as well🌞

Content was good very knowledgeable but the narration was difficult to listen to. I found it better to listen at a faster rate I used 1.4X this smooths out the presentation well. This book is rich in content so much so I purchased the Kindle edition as well. Highly recommend.

Returned this one

The author REALLY should have hired voice talent. I can't even tell you if the book ended up being any good... The performance was not good at all so after several hours of listening to him talking about what a press is in lifting and the "Greek gods" of past (body builders) that we should look to because of their physique... I threw in the towel. I bought the book to learn the specific tweaks that I'd need to make to a standard keto diet. I never got to any of that after several hours of listening so I called audible to return it! My suspicion from other reading is that you need a bit more protein if you are wanting to build mass instead of simply a maintenance amount. Time will answer that since Siim seemed to have an issue getting to that point!

Reading the book poorly and we hear it

Just began the book. Very difficult to listen to. He’s not telling a story. He’s reading the words off the page.

I didn’t want to ruin his rating so I will keep
the 5 stars for overall and story.

Please consider redoing or having someone else redo it

Review by a nurse practitioner and trainer

Breaks down the science behind Keto and gives qualified and quantitative review on studies done supporting Keto. Also explains which type of Keto dieting, supplements, and food has been proven beneficial to establishing lean muscle. Great book, contributing immensely to my already established knowledge of Keto.

A fantastic book covering all aspects of Keto particularly for sport & bodybuilding , Siim goes into full physiological details enabling you to learn exactly what’s going on inside our bodies. He thoroughly compares the effects of glucose vs running on ketones. Well worth a read if your starting out on a Keto diet & strength train.

Packed with good information

The book is very good and motivational as well.
I understand people have trouble with the guy's accent. He should have a professional actor doing the recording, however,
I put the speed to 1.25 and worked perfect :)

Terrible recording, reasonable content

The reader of the audiobook should never be allowed to record again. Shockingly bad deliver even if the content was interesting.

Surprisingly, the BEST keto book

A true gem, surprisingly concise. Terrible recording quality but the narrators voice is almost lyrical. Feels like having your own Baltic/Eastern European life coach giving you no BS. Some nice humor blended with raw data, science, the authors informed opinion and some philosophical pickings to tide things over. Listened in 2 days, starting over now.

Great book - just hard to understand at times

All the info was great, however the recording sounded like it was done on a cassette tape from 1972... The reader should really look at getting a native English speaker to read it as it was quite hard to understand at times.
Great book and I'm looking forward to putting the techniques and info to use

Siim is an awesome and hilarious nutrition god. I’ve been following his YouTube channel for a long time and I feel like he’s one of the top guys to follow for keto nutrition. Be sure to also follow his YouTube channel. Awesome book all round. Love you Siim.

Very Interesting

What did you like most about Keto Bodybuilding?

Focus on bodybuilding whilst being on keto (unconventional)

What did you like best about this story?

Practical

Any additional comments?

Sometimes hard to understand due to accent, however, is okay after listening for around 15mins.

Purposeful

The book delves into all operational aspects in which constitutes bodybuilding, and then adapting the keto methodology to this. Well researched, the book validates many of my assumptions as a keto physique athlete.

Slim has a strong accent, but his commitment to producing a full and conclusive book really
Stood out - 6 hours of good insights and productive recommendations.

Great contents. Poor recording quality.

The author displays great knowledge in bodybuilding and keto diet. His English is almost poetic! I love it!!
The only thing is that the quality of the recording was poor. This audio book would be much more useful if it is published as an actual book.

For starters needs another narrator!!

The narrator’s accent and his very boring way to tell the story make this book completely tedious and annoying, does give you any interest to follow up!!
