Do you want to optimize athletic performance, lose weight, and improve your health?
Say goodbye to sugar cravings, extra body fat, unhealthy foods and discover the amazing health and weight loss benefits of the low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet!
The ketogenic diet combines a customized carbohydrate restriction, moderation of protein intake, and real food-based fats which is emerging in the scientific literature as a powerful means for improving a wide range of diseases that most people think require medication to control including epilepsy, Type 2 diabetes and Alzheimer’s.
Since ketones are a preferred fuel for the heart and the diaphragm, and because a state of ketosis can give you extreme focus and cognitive performance during difficult mental tasks, a ketogenic diet can be extremely useful for endurance athletes like triathletes, distance swimmers, cyclists, marathoners, ultra-runners, etc.
Problem is, there aren’t a ton of resources out there about how highly active people can actually get into a state of ketosis without…
A) chugging coconut oil and MCT oil all day long, which (trust me, I’ve tried) gets boring really, really fast; or
B) experiencing some pretty extreme nutrient deficiencies from a ketogenic diet gone wrong – nutrient deficiencies that really get magnified when you combine them with crazy high levels of physical activity.
So in this article, author, triathlete, and ketogenic expert extraordinaire Patricia Daly is going to fill you in on how to do things the right way.
This book is mainly aimed at endurance athletes, but can be very beneficial for other sports people like body builders or anybody who needs to lose weight in a safe way.
A well-designed ketogenic diet has been shown to have positive effects in individuals suffering from inflammatory conditions, autoimmune disease, excess weight or anybody who wants to clean up their diet and eat real food.
The overall health benefits of high-fat, low carbohydrate ketogenic diets have been shown to …
- be anti-inflammatory.
- produce less oxidative stress during exercise.
- enhance recovery between training sessions.
- reduce dependence on muscle glycogen.
- decrease the need to reload with carbohydrates during and after exercise.
- accelerate the use of saturated fat for fuel, allowing a high intake of total fats without risk.
- enhance gut and immune function by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation.
The main goal of the ketogenic lifestyle is to teach the body to run on fat/ketone bodies instead of glucose. A big advantage of burning fat instead of glucose is that the body has access to around 92,000 calories instead of only about 2,000 calories of stored glucose.
So it makes sense that a ketogenic diet may be beneficial for sports endurance!
- An introduction to the ketogenic diet for athletes and overview of the basic principles.
- 14 days of meal plans that take the hassle out of planning a ketogenic day.
- Full overview with clear instructions and macronutrient ratios for each recipe.
- A whole section with keto-friendly snacks if calorie intake needs to be increased.
- Ketogenic foods at a glance for easy reference.
- All recipes are grain/gluten free and many are dairy free or can easily be modified to exclude dairy.
- A list of resources and scientific references for further research and reading.
- A free bonus package from Ben Greenfield as a “thank you” for buying the book.
And, you will discover this way of eating can be integrated into family life with just a little practice.
You’ll get into full fat-burning adaptation if you follow the plan in this book for as little as 14 days…and revitalize your life!
