I've been following a ketogenic diet for about 7 months now. I could write a few pages on the number of positive benefits that I've benefited from by eating this way -- it's literally changed everything in my life from my mood, waistline, hair and fingernails, energy level, memory recall, cognitive function, biomarkers, blood lipid tests, etc. I understand that it may not work for everyone but it has been remarkable for me and I'll likely follow some version of it for the rest of my life.
I also lift weights and have done so for several decades. I decided after a few months doing keto that even if I lost lean muscle mass that I could live with that given the changes that I was seeing on the diet. But, to my surprise, I found better gains via keto after having been on it for about three months.
So, when I saw the title and description of this book I immediately purchased it as I was hoping to better understand some basis for my own experiences concerning this subject. Unfortunately, the book was almost a complete let down for me. I nearly stopped listening after the first five minutes as it seemed that the audiobook had almost been published as some sort of joke. I got better toward the end although I'm not a fan of cyclical or targeted ketogenic diets as I believe that carb refeeds take one out of ketosis for too long and that this takes away from the benefits I believe are associated with this diet/lifestyle.
There are so many great ketogenic resources available and many of them are free on youtube: Dr. Volek, Dr. Attia, Dr. Phinney, Dominic D'Agustino, Dr. Wahls, etc. Even Jimmy Moore's book was quite good.
I really wanted to get something out of this book. For starters, I think the author would have been better served by hiring a professional narrator and to remove the various references to becoming "Greek gods" and similar "bro" messaging.

The Narrator Siim Land is really bad and makes it very difficult to listen to.

very good I know a lot when it comes to keto and bodybuilding,, and have learnt a little bit more ,this guy knows his stuff very in depth, a few people on here complain about audio recording ,I found it ok ,I think it's just his accent he is foreign but his English very good, this guy is a very clever guy and will be looking for more stuff from him not keto or diet as he says it all here ,but he comes out with other stuff, I listen to about 4audio books a month and very rarely do reviews , so well done siim 👍
The reader of the audiobook should never be allowed to record again. Shockingly bad deliver even if the content was interesting.
A true gem, surprisingly concise. Terrible recording quality but the narrators voice is almost lyrical. Feels like having your own Baltic/Eastern European life coach giving you no BS. Some nice humor blended with raw data, science, the authors informed opinion and some philosophical pickings to tide things over. Listened in 2 days, starting over now.
This book is a must for anyone wishing to explore the benefits of keto for high performance and body recomp. Well done I wish I found this sooner. If I had it would of saved me making all the mistakes I made as the transition to this lifestyle can be challenging when done without a resource such as this
