1) The Keto Reset Diet: The Ketogenic Plan to Reboot Your Metabolism in 21 Days and Burn Fat Forever
By: Mark Sisson
You may recognize the author, Mark Sisson, as he is one of the leading voices in the Paleo community, and the writer of the hit-sensation: “The Primal Blueprint”. In “The Keto Reset Diet”, Mike dives into his proven ketogenic eating strategies for losing weight and improving your health overall. I highly recommend this as an audiobook, since he does a great job of breaking dense information down into digestible pieces, perfect for an easy listen while on the go! He expertly breaks down the process of becoming “fat-adapted”, a critical component of keto success, and then dives into a suggested 21-day “reset” program to get your body consuming and burning all of the right fuel. As with his other books, he also offers recipes and tactical strategies for acquiring the appropriate macros, all of which help you to walk away feeling educated and capable of dominating your diet!
2) The Plant Paradox: The Hidden Dangers in “Healthy” Foods That Cause Disease and Weight Gain
By: Steven Gundry
“The Plant Paradox” is a fascinating read, and one that I encourage anyone (no matter what diet they align with) to take into consideration before loading up their grocery cart. Dr. Steven Gundry is a renowned cardiac surgeon that deep-dives into hidden compounds that exist in what we typically deem as “healthful” foods. This book offers a great analysis into how and why lectins can be harmful when ingested. As always with most diet books, take this one with a grain of salt, as everyone’s body reacts differently to various compounds. That being said, many of his analyses line up with protocol from the ketogenic diet, and can offer some backbone to why we feel inflamed after eating particular foods.
3) Fat For Fuel: A Revolutionary Diet to Combat Cancer, Boost Brain Power, and Increase Your Energy
By: Dr. Joseph Mercola
If you’ve ever wanted a reason as to why you should take the keto diet seriously, then this is the audiobook for you! In this easy-listening novel, Joseph Mercola explains how nearly all disease is caused by defective metabolic processes. The culprit? Damage and dysfunction to our mitochondria – the powerhouses of our cells! Dr. Mercola does a fantastic job of laying out a full framework to help us better understand the process of rebooting our metabolism and rebuilding our mitochondria through the ketogenic diet. He also cites all sorts of evidence around the positive effects this diet can have on our longevity and well-being, such as increased energy, weight loss, and improved brain functioning. I don’t know about you, but I sure wouldn’t want to pass up on this conversation!
4) Eat Fat, Get Thin: Why the Fat We Eat Is the Key to Sustained Weight Loss and Vibrant Health
By: Mark Hyman
If you’ve been loyal to the keto program for awhile, you may have started to realize that this diet requires us to consume a lot of fat! And despite what you may have been told growing up – that is absolutely a great thing!! In Dr. Mark Hyman’s book “Eat Fat, Get Thin”, he dissects all of the research validating the use of fat in our diets, and strikes out on a mission to reveal the positive benefits that this habit has on our bodies. This book comes with an immense amount of resources, including: practical tools, meal plans, recipes, and shopping lists as well as step-by-step, easy-to-follow advice for ways to incorporate the right amount (and type) of fat into your diet.
