That said: this book (for me) gets you 90% where you need to go. I say: read it. AND read COCONUT OIL MIRACLE first.
Now: about that other 10%: Jimmy Moore is releasing a new book in August called Keto Clarity. It contains the additional 10%. I have read this Dr Fife book and like it VERY much. Read it. THEN: take the next step and pre-order Jimmy's book. You'll be ready for that one with this really good foundation.
KETOGENIC living will SHOCK & AMAZE you. It certainly did me!! Don't be fooled though: This puppy takes REAL commitment to tackle, get on, stay on and be willing to take months to be crazy successful!! GEAR UP!!
Good news:: The initial stage of becoming a fat-burner can take as little as 3wks - month. Be strict & faithful -AND~ Be strong!!
THIS is the biggest secret of our time~
Congrats for grabbing the tail of this tiger!!
I don't think everything in here is 100% true and everyone's body is different. Use your intuition and listen to your body.
I do feel this is one of the better diet books I've read and I am keto - but I tweek the diet to fit my body's needs as if I followed their protocol, it wouldn't work as well for me.
Give it a try. And yes I am losing weight :) I was a 4, I'm now a 2, and I'm shooting for a 0. As many of you know, it's more difficult to lose, the closer you are to your goal weight. So I am impressed. I feel there is good info in here. Even things like getting sunshine - that is very important to weight loss and it's typically overlooked.
I do feel I should mention that Keto does have side effects, and some aren't pleasant. I don't know if Keto is good long-term, my intuition tells me no, at least not for me. Maybe I will cycle, maybe I will just tweek the foods so I can stay keto but in a way that feels better to my body. Not sure - time will tell. I may come back and update this review later if things change or more info comes to light.
All in all - I would recommend this. Also the Keto reddit is awesome for information, help and inspiration!!!
The low fat or low calorie diet that you are on is the reason why your weight loss has been slow, or non-existent. Fat is an essential nutrient; the human body needs a certain amount of it every day. It helps to slow down food in your digestive system so that it can be absorbed. Besides, food producers will add chemicals to make up for the fat or calories that have been removed, chemicals that are even less healthy than fat.
Your whole thyroid system may be malfunctioning, not just your thyroid gland, which the usual thyroid blood test may not pick up. The problem may be an iodine deficiency, or chemicals like fluorine, chlorine and bromine that are in your tap water. Take your temperature several times during the day. If it is chronically more than 0.3 degrees low, that may indicate a thyroid or metabolism problem. How can a person stimulate their metabolism? Drink lots of water, get regular exercise and exposure to sunlight, eat a wholesome diet, consume coconut oil and add cayenne pepper to the diet.
What about this coconut ketogenic diet? The two most important parts of it are to greatly reduce, or eliminate, your consumption of carbohydrates, and have three tablespoons of coconut oil with each meal. If your body tells you to start with one tablespoon per meal and work your way up from there, that's fine. The book has a list of the carbohydrate content in fruits, vegetables and breads, along with a chart showing desired body weight. The explains why coconut oil (also known as medium chain triglycerides) are so healthy.
This is an excellent book. It is not the usual "diet," where the dieter is limited to certain foods. If all a person can do is greatly reduce their carbohydrate consumption, and do a lot more exercising, without doing anything else, that can only help. This book is recommended for everyone, with and without a weight problem.
