Let me first say that I have never been a fan of any fad diet. Ever.
I have never understood the point of participating in some restrictive diet for a month or so only to eventually quit because–be honest–you hate it and it is unrealistic. And end up right where you started, except usually with less money.
But The Keto Reset Diet is a different story. Mark Sisson and Brad Kearns layout an eating plan designed to reprogram your body such that you harness metabolic efficiency and flexibility.
While it is a definite lifestyle change and major departure from the Standard American Diet, this plan is not about depriving yourself of food.
Going “keto” really redefines the food pyramid as we know it. By eating in a high-fat, moderate-protein and low-carb pattern, your body shifts from burning glucose to burning fat and ketones. This metabolic function is wildly more efficient and has a myriad of health benefits, including:
- Aids in weight loss and reduction in fat stores
- May help reduce the risk of cancer
- Improves heart health
- Related to improved cognition
- May help protect brain function from degenerative disease
- Potentially reduces seizures
- Increases immunity
- Reduces acne
The good news is you can eat with total satisfaction by enjoying rich, high-satiety foods, which are also nutrient dense. And in this pattern of eating, you will become what Sisson “affectionately call[s] a fat-burning beast, and you’ll stay this way for the rest of your life”
The Keto Reset Diet is no fad weight loss program—it’s a set of lifestyle laws and habits that promote health, wellness and longevity. If you want a quick graphic overview of the program before getting the book, Google Primal Blueprint and see how much sense it makes to you.
