What is the Keto Diet?
The keto diet plan is proven to be a highly effective method of losing weight, reversing or preventing numerous diseases and improving cognitive function.
Unlike diets based on the old calorie in/calorie out method, this diet does not expect you to go hungry. It is a proven diet that aims to help you to achieve your goals by eating in a way that is in tune with your hormones.
By doing this, you will be using your natural body processes to actively help you to utilize your stored fat to meet your daily energy needs.
Further, you will be turning off your body’s fat storing signal. Your body will learn to use the food you eat for fuel, and to give you long-lasting steady energy throughout the day – no more after lunch slump.
Plus, because the foods eaten on the keto diet are super satiating, you will no longer feel hungry in between meals. You will find that your need to reach for the snacks will be greatly reduced.
On top of all of these gains, the keto diet has also been proven to help lift your mood and to lessen anxiety.
How does the keto diet work?
The keto diet is based on the proven idea that it isn’t how much we eat that is making us fat, but what we eat.
The keto diet restricts your total daily carbohydrate intake to 20 net grams or less; no more than 5% of your daily intake. 25% of your nutrition will be protein, and the remaining 70% of your daily requirements will come from healthy fats.
By following these guidelines you will reach a state of ketosis. This is the healthful state which will bring you multiple health benefits including the ability to:
Prevent fat storage and the use of glucose for energy by putting your body into a state of ketosis.
Train your body to efficiently switch to burning fat for fuel to meet its energy needs, thus reducing unwanted body fat. This includes hard to shift visceral fat.
Stabilize blood/glucose levels
Reduce dangerous chronic inflammation, thereby reducing or preventing many health issues.

What’s in the free Keto Diet Plan ebook?
You’ll learn how to get started in a way that will make your transition to keto eating as easy and comfortable as it can be.
There are plenty of tips on cleaning up your diet, and cutting out the foods that will not be allowed on the keto diet plan.
Of course, there’s no need to do this ahead of time, but if you plan properly there is less chance of you finding it difficult for the first few days.
One of the most important tips is the need to clear out your cupboards of all the foods that you won’t be able to eat.
I neither buy nor store off limit foods. If it’s in the house, sooner or later I’ll eat it. So unless you’re super strong, having a clearing out day will be something that should be on your pre diet list.
Another great idea is to get yourself a good set of scales. Its important that you don’t just guess the amounts that you’re eating, especially in the beginning.
See this article for tips about how to judge the amount of food you’re eating. It also discusses the best sort of scales to use if you want to weigh your food and track how much your eating.
All about Ketosis
The keto diet plan also has a section all about ketosis. I strongly recommend that you read this, and familiarize yourself with what to expect.
Normally ketosis is achieved without problems, but from time to time the so called keto flu can become an issue.
It’s fairly easy to deal with, once you have it, and can be avoided altogether if you know in advance what to do to make sure that this doesn’t become a problem for you.
