The Big Fat-Burning Science
All forms of carbohydrates - fruits, vegetables, grains, and starches - are broken down into glucose by your body, increasing your blood sugar. Your body considers raised blood sugar toxic, so it releases insulin (a storage hormone) to push the glucose into your cells. Once this occurs your blood sugar decreases, making you hungry again.
This vicious cycle of blood sugar highs and lows is why you experience endless hunger and cravings.
The release of insulin halts your body's ability to release fat and toxins. If you're eating carbohydrate-based foods every two to three hours, your body is never fully able to exercise its ability to rid itself of excess. And if more carbohydrates are consumed than what your body needs, they will be converted into triglycerides and stored in your blood, leading to weight gain and unbalanced cholesterol.

Great book for beginners

So thankful I found Leanne's YouTube video's as well as this book. I have spent years in bad health from Metabolic Syndrome to stomach issues. I tried Vegan, Paleo, Atkins and too many others to mention. Keto just sounded good from the start and her podcasts and videos have helped me begin my journey of health. She speaks to you, not at you and never claims to be the authority on all things Keto. She shares her research and personal trials and errors. I've been Keto for about 2 months and my stomach is healing and I have cut my meds for blood pressure issues in half. My mind is clear and my moods are great. I couldn't have done it without her guidance.

A good book for beginners

A good book for someone wanting to learn the basics to get started on eating for nutritional ketosis. That would be me. Actually it goes a bit further than the basics. Lots of good information.

contradicts her current views

I liked it. the only downside is that some of her views and recommendations etc contradict what she says in her newest book and on her podcast...
