Thank you Goodreads and Penguin Random House for an uncorrected Prood copy of The Keto Reset Diet.
Mark Sisson, an ex-endurance athlete, has written this very informative book on Keto dieting. This book shows us how to eat right in a world full of unhealthy food choices. This book teaches you how to make better choices and how to burn fat faster. It is a step-down guide in getting rid of sugars, sweet beverages, desserts, then eliminating processed grains, bread, pasta, cereal and rice. I really

Just get the recipes and the index. I feel like I would go crazy if I followed this diet. There is so much measuring of food and checking the keto and so so much soft science. I mean, I already do intermittent fasting and I already don't eat that many carbs, but this book seemed both over the top and not super rigorous. Read the Obesity Code by Fung or any of the Gary Taubes books instead. This one seemed a bit too gimmicky. Also, there's like three pages at the end about "Women." Ha! The whole ...more

Bodies are ... interesting.

When we're dreaming, daydreaming, meditating, or even immersed in a good book, we experience a reality that has nothing to do with our physical bodies.

You’ve flown in a dream, right? It’s such a delicious experience, in large part because when you’re in a dream, flying, you’re totally unshackled from your physical body, from the physical laws (gravity!) that are otherwise an inescapable consequence of being “in” a body.

**1.5 Stars**

DISCLAIMER: I thought this book was cookbook. When I saw that it was a full diet, I read the plan in its entirety anyway. That being said....

This book is written for someone who is relatively fit & with a few pounds to lose, so if you're looking for a weight loss plan, look elsewhere.

Also, there is WAY too much math to do on your own in order to figure out what you should eat (Why aren't there some basic ratios of carbs, protein, & fat for each phase of this plan?? And how

This book lays out a plan for how you are going to get from point A to point B in a keto diet. You don’t have to crash into keto and experience horrible and sometimes downright scary side effects of dropping your carbs by the 100’s of grams overnight. Many keto advocates promote the “all or nothing” approach. Sisson teaches you how to gradually and safely enter ketosis, how to adapt, and then offers thoughts on where to go next to make this a whole life plan.

This book contains valuable information for anyone seeking to improve his/her health. The constant journaling and measuring to make sure one is hitting the right ratios (65-75% fat, 15-25% protein, and 5-10% carbs) would drive me crazy, however. I want to just eat, and enjoy it. I came away feeling informed, but very unsure of whether or not this is something I would want to follow.

I am a bit of a health nut. Although I eat out or eat junk food occasionally, I am always immediately reminded of why I don’t do it more often because, almost instantaneously, my body rebels against what I have put in it. It has recently seemed to me that everyone and their dog is going Keto. Curious about this supposedly more healthy way of eating, I picked up this book on recommendation by a friend on Keto.

Keto is a low-carb, high-fat, moderate-protein diet. There are a lot of misconceptions a

I think the author is very knowledgeable on this subject. He went into great depths to explain the science behind this diet and how it works. I think he provides a lot of practical info and personal tips on how to succeed at this lifestyle. He is very wordy and tries to cover a LOT of information, probably more than most people require.

I like Mark Sisson’s blog so I was excited to read this book when it came out as I was already eating a keto diet and thought I could get some good additional info. This book was okay but it felt incredibly repetitive in every chapter. I’m not sure if he really was repeating the same sort of info often or if I’d read it all many times in other places. A lot of it was trying to sell someone on the cause of a keto diet which I guess was not necessary for me as I was already on board. This book wou ...more

This book left me conflicted in several ways. Having been on a Ketoish diet for about six months, I have noted a distinct change in mental alertness, so I am convinced it does something beneficial. Yet the whole evolutionary explanation found in this book wouldn’t ring true if I believed in evolution. How can fossils tell you what people did and didn’t eat? Since I believe the Bible, I was also left wondering if grains and other non-Keto foods are really as bad as claimed if God created man to e ...more

Excellent book on the subject. It explains the proper and safe transition into Ketosis and how to remain in the "keto zone."

My personal philosophy is that health and eating should not require math or measure so, after reading this, I've decided to not bother with ketosis. It sounds amazing, but it would be too much of a hassle for me (measuring ketones and daily carb intake with journaling is something I refuse to do after counting calories for years) and I'm seeing results carb cycling with sw

I think I'm of an age that I need a hard copy of something, a book, to guide me rather than just being able to rely on the internet. And so it was that when deciding to try out the keto diet, I wanted to get a reference guide. There are too many books on keto out there, but I thought this one would do. And it did, for the most part.

One of its points of difference is that it goes into the science of the diet extensively. But here's the thing. I'm a pretty literate science reader, and I'm not sure

The Keto Reset Diet has the best information on the keto diet and the science behind ketosis that I've read. Mark Sisson really dives into what keto is, how to get your body into ketosis and how to stay in ketosis.

The Keto Reset is a 21-day period where you prepare your body to go into ketosis. Mark walks the reader through ditching toxic, unhealthy foods and replacing them with nourishing, nutrient-dense options. There are great lists of food types with what to eliminate and what to replace th

I would have loved to see a list of sources. There are plenty of findings that he mentions, lots of name dropping, but an appendix of sources and studies does not exist in this one.

It shows you how to transition into eating better without just jumping in so that you can become better accustom to eating this way and not shock your system. You can find helpful food replacements so you won't go feeling unsatisfied. I've enjoyed the recipes I've tried from the book, though I haven't had the chance to try many of them yet.

I think this book is primarily intended for newbies. If you have read The Primal Blueprint you probably already know a good chunk of the info in here. The 21-day reboot, from what I can tell, is essentially the same as the 21-day primal challenge. However, there is a good amount of helpful information about Keto as well. I think those who have never heard of primal, paleo, or keto will get the most benefit out of this book. If you already know about primal or paleo and want to learn about Keto y ...more

Super helpful and encouraging book. I've tried Keto twice before, several years apart. I lasted 7 days the first time, back when Atkins was the only game in town. The second time, about a year and a half ago, I did a bunch of Internet research and gave it another go. I lasted 10 days, and hated the food so much I cried through the last several meals, before throwing in the towel.

Both times I dropped weight alarmingly fast, so I know it works, but the experience was so awful, I couldn't continue

The information in this book isn't bad - it just has a very limited horizon, very much focusing on a target audience that is similar to the writer: male athlete looking to increase performance or health and longevity. If you - like me - wanted to learn about keto for weightloss there is much better, more tailored and helpful information out there. Honestly, if you have some serious weight to lose, you might get a little frustrated by the amount of times Sisson writes about "those last 5 pounds t ...more

I think Mark is a strong writer about something that isn't exactly a page turner. He is able to add scientific fact to common sense scenarios that make sense. I think he creates a valid argument against processed foods and carbohydrate foods that is hard to argue with. My only complaint is that when Mark talks about these life style changes above and beyond eating carb-heavy food, I do not feel he is realistic for a lot of people. Mark is in his 60s and owns his own company and is quite financia ...more

Good information

I went into this book not overly concerned about getting into the Keto lifestyle.  I enjoy Mark Sisson’s ability to thoroughly research the subject.  The first part of the book, the 21 days reset portion, was something I found to be very useful.  What I truly wanted was a well written intro guide to the Primal/Paelo lifestyle, and I think I really found it with this book.  The meal guide and recipes were key in getting my wife and I to succeed.  I’m feeling better and much of the

Dám pět hvězd, ale upřímně není to jednoznačné hodnocení. Kniha je prima, hodně lidem pomůže si urovnat názory na keto. Ale často jsou to názory, zkušenosti a zážitky lidí, kterým Mark věří (místy je přidává i jako opačné názory) a jak i sám párkrát zmíní, vědy místy není dostatek a je nutné si pár let počkat, jak se to vše vyvine. Proto volí mírnější cestu, která by měla zaručit úspěch všem. Přikládá 21+ denní program, který má další jednu až dvě fáze. Nabízí taky velké množství receptů, které ...more

I finished the majority of this book but haven’t tried the Keto diet, yet. Mark provides good background information and addresses what you need to prepare for and “go” Keto. To be honest, this book is about preparing to go Keto for 21 days and then diving in. The writing and information is accessible and easy to understand.

I appreciate all of the recipes and information but the book feels a bit rushed. And it is very frustrating that there is no recipe index or at least a categorized listing. T

TRUTH: I spot read this. I'm familiar with the keto way of thinking and, indeed, my body feels at its best when I follow the keto process.

Page 142 sums up the keto idea pretty succinctly:
"...when you wake up and slam orange juice and cereal in short order, you spike insulin, shut off ketone production, ... lock fat into storage, and send a message to your genes that carbohydrates are going to be your go-to fuel source for the rest of your busy day."

Ignore the rating. It doesn’t feel accurate to rate this book without trying a recipe or doing the 21 day challenge. I read the e-book because our local natural food store is sponsoring workshops based on the book and I’m pro-nutrition for healing and wanted to learn more.

I think the writing does a good job explaining physiology and nutrition to help understand the concepts, though the e-book didn’t have visuals and that would have helped. I think the best recommendation is that I felt motivated

“The ingestion of carbohydrates, especially the refined grains and sugars that are so prominent in the modern diet, causes a spike in blood sugar and a temporary energy boost. Then, because a glucose overdose is toxic in the bloodstream, insulin floods the bloodstream to remove any glucose you don’t burn immediately and stores it as either glycogen (in the liver and muscle tissues) or in the fat cells as triglyceride (the storage form of fat). When insulin removes glucose from your bloodstream and transports it into storage, you experience the familiar sugar crash and a craving for quick-energy carbohydrates. You have plenty of fat energy locked away in storage, but a high-insulin-producing diet prevents you from being able to access it. Instead, you become reliant on your next snack or meal for energy, and you exist in a state of carbohydrate dependency.” 1 likes
