Kick your sugar habit, lose weight, and feel amazing in just one month! Plus, enjoy tactics for success to live your best keto life sustainably after the 30-day mark.
The ketogenic diet, which promotes weight loss from being in the metabolic state of ketosis, is one of the most popular and effective diet plans in recent years. And it continues to grow in popularity as people across the country are learning more and more about it. However, there is conflicting research regarding the safety of consuming unlimited amounts of items such as bacon, cheese, fatty cuts of meats, and fried pork rinds. A large percentage of Keto dieters find the 70–80 percent fat intake requirement unsustainable, and even worrisome due to potential health implications. Many people are curious about the Keto lifestyle, given the weight loss results they hear about from others, but will not attempt the diet as the fat intake requirement sounds daunting!
The 30-Day Keto Plan provides a detailed system to help readers lose weight and see blood sugar level improvements in just one month. With emphasis on the healthiest fats and cleaner ketogenic foods, readers will benefit from detailed grocery lists, and meal plans, macro-nutrient charts, and categorized fats, carbohydrates, and proteins which are most beneficial for the healthiest keto plan.
Nutritionists and authors Aimee and Richard instruct readers on exactly what to eat for four weeks to achieve ketosis, weight loss, and overall health improvements, without requiring exercise. In just thirty days, readers will learn how to achieve freedom from sugar and the processed food lifestyle, and they will kick-start their weight loss goals. It is very common for keto dieters to see dramatic results, only to regress and regain the lost weight once they are no longer following the ketogenic regimen. This book provides a formal and sustainable program for the post-ketosis stage, which will yield positive long-term results and assist in maintaining life-long health and wellness.
