Many diets have come in and out of our lives over the years. With some we achieve success, with others, not so much. Whether our goal is to lose weight, decrease disease and medication use, or just improve energy and mental clarity, I am sure you feel you have tried everything. One of the hardest parts of beginning a diet, I'm sure you'll agree, is follow through. Finding that way of eating that will propel you to the healthy person you know is waiting inside of you.
When I began my journey, I researched diets, made pro and con lists and zeroed in on one specific area, the Ketogenic or Keto Diet. I began reading Bill McIntosh's book, “BodyReBoot: Ignite Your Metabolism, Quickly Shed Weight & Eat Your Way To Health” and it completely changed my entire way of thinking not only of my diet, but how the foods I eat are effecting my WHOLE self. What I discovered about my everyday eating regime was an eye opener. With this new knowledge I made the decision to get on the program and improve my life. If you are new to the Ketogenic or Keto Diet, Bill explains everything perfectly in the pages of the “BodyReboot” book, beginning with what this lifestyle plan consists of, the science behind why it works and how greatly it can benefit your overall health.
So what exactly is the Keto Diet? Bill explains:
The Ketogenic diet (keto) is a diet plan extremely low in sugar and carbohydrates. It focuses on increasing the amount of fat in your diet and causing something called ketogenesis. Ketogenesis switches on your body's fat burning Furnace and helps you rapidly lose weight
You may have heard of low-carb diets or even high protein diets like the Atkins diet but keto is something different. You'll need to eliminate added sugar from your diet and dramatically cut your carbohydrate intake, but a central feature to the diet is that you will increase the amount of healthy fat that you eat each day.
It is most important to understand that keto is not just a fad diet, or a temporary solution to weight loss, it is actually designed to be a lifestyle plan that not only results in successful weight loss, but also promotes overall health, energy, and vitality.
It eliminates junk and processed food. By definition, most carbs are just that. A ketogenic diet allows you to eat more quality food for better overall health and wellness.
While some may question how sustainable it really is to drastically lower carb intake, in reality, it is quite easy with the wide variety of whole foods available. Several studies show they offer better results for weight loss than low-fat diets, or even low-calorie diets.
Beginning anything new can be challenging especially if you don't have the right plan in place. In the “BodyReboot” book every aspect of the Ketogenic Diet is broken down and specifically explained, Bill makes everything very easy to follow. Knowing what to eat, how to prepare meals, taking the proper essential daily vitamins and minerals and the most efficent exercise to perform while on the keto diet is laid out in each chapter. With the right plan to achieve your goals, anything is possible. I highly recommend you get your copy of “BodyReBoot” and begin your Keto journey at full speed.
