Publisher's Summary

You're about to discover everything you should know about the ketogenic diet, the benefits, and recipes.

This audiobook contains proven steps and strategies on the ultimate guide for beginners, for weight loss, burning fat, and going low-carb and high-fat.

The phrase "ketogenic" stems from the natural process of "ketosis", which allows our bodies to thrive when the intake of food might be low. Ketones are produced during this process as fats break down in our livers. The entire goal of the ketogenic diet is to force our bodies to stay within this state of high metabolism. No, it is not about starving yourself and keeping yourself from consuming food, but rather the starvation of consuming carbohydrates. 

Humans have not changed in the fact that we can adapt to our environments at drastic speeds. That being said, when you pack your body with bad edibles, it will start to burn those precious ketones that are partially responsible for weight loss and optimum mental and physical performance.

The ketogenic diet is made up of extremely low-carb and high-fat intakes. This diet is quite similar to that of the Atkins and other low-carb diets. While you are reducing your intake of carbohydrates by such drastic amounts, you are replacing it with foods high in fat. The absence of carbs creates a higher metabolic state within your body, known as ketosis (as mentioned above). In layman's terms, our body becomes an incredibly powered working machine, burning off fat for energy instead of ketones. It warps our metabolisms so that it no longer burns precious substances utilized to keep our bodies in the best shape they can be. This diet has been shown to reduce blood sugars and insulin levels, which makes it a diet that is loaded with quite a few health benefits.

This is a first time of me listening to an audiobook of this type. 17 mins of it was information and the rest was recipes. I will say the recipes are hard to listen to and most likely difficult to make just from listening to the audio format (the ebook would be best for that). And there are no brand names of things listed for instance chocolate chips is used in an ingredient. Well that has sugar which spikes glucose levels. Some people may not know about stevia based chocolates that are out there, or state to use highest cocoa content (dark chocolate) for less sugar.

I found some slim information new to me, but otherwise I already knew most of what to do. So in that case this probably wasn't the best book for me. I also wished some info was elaborated more on. It was so short.

Narrated did a great job.
