Publisher's Summary

The ketogenic diet is a diet based on a process called ketosis. It is a specific state of the body, which is characterized by an elevated level of ketones in the blood which occurs due to the conversion of fats into fatty acid and ketones. This occurs when the body gets only very small amounts of carbohydrates over a certain period of time.
When you start with this type of diet, your body goes through several changes. After 24 to 48 hours since the beginning of this diet, the body starts to use ketones in order to use the energy stored in fat cells more efficiently. In other words, a primary source of energy becomes fat, instead of carbohydrates.
Because of that, during ketosis it is not a problem to eat food with bigger amount of fact, than would otherwise seem reasonable
This way the body is rapidly losing weight, specifically in fat. In addition, the loss of muscle tissue is minimal since the vast majority of food consumed during ketosis also contains relatively large amounts of proteins that are good for your muscles.
If you are interested in finding out more about this diet, listen to this interesting and informative book to find out more about the ketogenic diet.

I couldn't get through 15 minutes...

The narration is what kills this book. It is so robotic I couldn't pay attention. The book may have great info, but I can't get through it to find out.
