Keto cycling is the most powerful, most effective, and most efficient tool for overcoming chronic disease and restoring health. Keto cycling is a method of going in and out of ketosis—a metabolic state in which the body runs on fat. It is absolutely the easiest and most efficient method for losing excess body fat and achieving your optimal weight. Low-fat, calorie-restricted diets are gruelingly difficult because you feel continually hungry and deprived; the keto approach is comparatively easy. The food is delicious and your hunger is depressed, so you can eat to your satisfaction and still lose the weight without the pain.
All of the common health markers that doctors measure when evaluating a patient’s health, such as blood pressure, blood sugar, triglycerides, HDL, and systemic inflammation, are improved when a person goes keto. It is like hitting the reset button on your computer—all of the garbage is deleted and you are returned to the original properly working starting position before the errors began to creep in. Health problems are wiped away and you get a fresh start. Hormones are rebalanced, proper digestion is restored, energy levels improve, and blood chemistry improves; you sleep better, think better, and function better. It is literally an anti-aging diet. All of these results have been documented in published medical and nutritional studies.
Unfortunately, information about how to do the ketogenic diet is awash in myths, misinformation, and misconceptions that are perpetuated on the internet, in books, and in the news media. Many people are confused, and consequently do not follow the diet properly, leading to unsatisfactory results.
This book exposes common errors that can sabotage the ketogenic diet and reveals how you can greatly enhance the health-promoting effects of the diet through keto cycling.
