Publisher's Summary

A ketogenic diet isn't something new that has been recently formulated; people have been on a ketogenic diet for virtually three million years in which our brains were nurtured and evolved. Now the human brain is not only shrinking, but brain atrophy is the norm as we age and get plagued with diseases such as dementia, Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease.
People mistakenly think that they need to eat less and exercise more to create a calorie deficit in order to lose weight. This is not how diet and exercise helps with weight loss. A well-formulated keto-adapted diet along with proper exercise builds muscle and muscle builds mitochondria. It is in the mitochondria where fat is oxidized so you can keep your cells and liver insulin sensitized. Weight loss and health is about healthy mitochondria and about controlling hormones and specifically insulin.
This is not a diet, it is a lifestyle. By eating this way, you will begin to heal your cells and will keep evolving your body into the happy and healthy person you want to be. This book is filled with the most impeccable nutrition information to fuel your cells. Maria's passion goes beyond explaining the "why", she is a master in the kitchen and loves food. Her keto-adapted recipes at the end of the book tie all the nutrition together so you can become Keto-Adapted faster than ever.

A good resource of practical nutritional solutions

Missing from the book description and many reviews of this book is that this is a very good reference book to match nutritional solutions to physical problems.

I am going to buy 4 copies of this book in hard copy version. One for myself, and the three others for people who could benefit from the nutritional (suggested food or vitamin) solutions offered for a variety of specific problems. (Weight, Fertility, Hair Loss, Eczema, Heart, Diabetes, Allergies, Digestion, Energy, etc etc etc. - the examples shared in her book are numerous and varied.)

Maria Emmerich's nutritional advice is helpful to people who want to lessen reliance on pharmaceuticals.

The application of the Ketogenic Way Of Nutrition is explained, but this book is different from the other ketogenic books I've read in that it offers very usable, practical, applicable information. Like how to choose vitamins, and which vitamins to take in the morning or evening, before eating, or with food. With the price of supplements, that one feature makes purchase of this book valuable - buy the best vitamins or minerals or food for your health, and save money by not buying the wrong stuff. I didn't know there were different kinds of magnesium, for example, and she explains the difference and why one kind is better than another.

Yes, I agree with other reviewers that portions *appear* to be self-promoting. And, for that reason I held off listening to this book - choosing other keto-related books first. BUT, this one book would have helped me to make better choices when I started buying vitamins and supplements recommended (vaguely) in the other books. I appreciate the specificity in this book on how to choose vitamins, or minerals, and like the succinct way Maria Emmerich can put in a few sentences why certain people need certain vitamins or minerals and how lack of, or addition of, these supplements will harm or help the body.

The audio version is enjoyable and educational, but because the information is detailed a hardcover will be handy to use as reference. It's easier to flip to a section in a hardcover to look something up than with an audio version. Also, it's easier to share information with friends and family with an actual book to show them when a chapter or paragraph addresses issues they are dealing with.

Faithful to the ketogenic lifestyle.

The sole distinguishing and redeeming value of this book from other keto books is that is takes the time to enumerate ailments and their causes that may be addressed with the ketogenic diet. The listener must be satisfied with endless testimonials as proof, and these often prove to be overly self-congratulatory to the author. These comprise a large chunk of the total text.

The performance tends to sing song and drone on so that the listener is beside themselves when they hear the words, "the end."

I would recommend the following in order: "Good Calories, Bad Calories" or "why We Get Fat" by Gary Taubes, "Living Low Carb" by Bowden, and, if you decide that the keto diet is for you, "Keto Clarity" by Jimmy Moore and Dr. Eric Westman. "Keto Adapted" should be about the tenth book you should buy.
