Publisher's Summary

From the author of the national best-seller Eat Dirt, a 30-day healthy plan - including more than 80 delicious recipes - to burn fat, fight inflammation, and reverse disease using the keto diet.

Today, the ketogenic diet is the world's fastest growing diet, and with good reason. When practiced correctly, it has been proven to burn fat, reduce inflammation, fight cancer, balance hormones and gut bacteria, improve neurological diseases, and even increase lifespan. Unfortunately, many people remain unaware of several key factors that are crucial to the diet's success, setting them up for frustration, failure, and relapse.

In Keto Diet, best-selling author Dr. Josh Axe sets the record straight, offering thorough, step-by-step guidance to achieving lifelong health. Unlike other guides on the subject, Keto Diet identifies and details five different ketogenic protocols and explains why picking the right one for your body and lifestyle is fundamental to your success. 

Complete with shopping lists, delicious recipes, complementary exercise routines, and accessible explanations of the science confirming the diet's powerful effects, Keto Diet gives listeners all the tools they need to say good-bye to stubborn fat and chronic disease once and for all. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

What the critics say

"Backed by science and Dr. Axe's own experience with patients, Keto Diet masterfully explains how setting your metabolism to the way humans functioned in ancient times reverses chronic diseases of today. Dr. Axe's interest in health started with his mom getting sick, which gave him powerful motivation. It is obvious in his work that this pure, original intention is very much alive. I trust Dr. Axe as a source of information without reservation, and I highly recommend his book to anyone interested in getting healthy." (Alejandro Junger, MD, author of Clean)

"Keto Diet is a proven way to balance insulin, reduce inflammation and change your health forever. In his book Dr. Axe busts all of the common Keto myths and teaches you how to do the Ketogenic diet the right way." (Dr. Mark Hyman, New York Times best-selling author of Food)

"If you're looking to lose weight, balance insulin, and boost your brain health, this book can change your life. Dr. Axe lays out a simple plan for following the Keto Diet the right way: by eating only nutrient-dense foods, like healthy fats, vegetables, herbs, and spices. If you're ready for a health breakthrough, this is the book for you." (Amy Myers, MD, author of The Thyroid Connection and The Autoimmune Solution

"Our dietary choices remain our most powerful ally in remaining healthy and combating disease. In Keto Diet, Dr. Josh Axe explores the emerging science that is converging around both the threat of carbohydrates and sugar as well as the powerfully salubrious benefits of a diet that augments our utilization of fat, and specifically ketones, to power our physiology. And beyond providing an in-depth exploration of this exciting science, Keto Diet provides the user-friendly tools that will allow every reader the chance to implement changes to regain and safeguard their health." (David Perlmutter, MD, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Grain Brain)

Read it twice

With so much disinformation about this complex diet, this book gives you accurate guidance without getting too mucked up in the details. Recipes are healthy and balanced, and after having spent the last 6 months obsessed with everything Keto, I can tell you the plan is solid. He just doesn’t go into why or compare to other crappier versions of the diet. I read it, I strayed and went “dirty keto” and when I read it again I realized how smart it really was. This is the ultimate reference.

Horrible Narrator

Please change the narrator. His verbal expression ,tone and style is annoying.If I can't actively listen to the book,it is useless. He overly pronounces the last letter in words and has a weird breathing pattern in his sentences. It sounds like he is adding "ah" at the end of words,so 'home' sounds like 'home-ah' etc.
I never knew the importance of a good narrator until realizing what a horrible one sounds like.

Excellent Information

Dr. Axe was detail oriented and provided information regarding Keto and how it is beneficial to your health from cancer, pms , menopause diabetes etc. He explains very well how to sustain this overall way of life once you are done the initial plan of 30 to 90 days. His step by step weekly menus and recipes are excellent for those just beginning Keto or for those who appreciate an outlined plan. As well as Dr Axe includes education on which herbs, vitamins and essential oils that will help you on this Keto journey! Love this book!

Doubt the plan would even achieve ketosis in most

I want to start this review by sharing that I have been on a ketogenic diet for over a year and have seen many health benefits related to being in ketosis. Highly recommend the ketogenic diet, just not this book.
I have several issues with this book I will list below:
1. The 30 day plan likely doesn’t have enough fat and too much protein and carbohydrates for most individuals to get into ketosis.
2. The keto cycling plan was so frequent (every third day) that most of the population would likely never get back into ketosis even if they were able to get there in the first place.
3. Many of the foods recommended are highly processed foods, many of which are inflammatory.
4. So much anecdotal ‘evidence’ used to recommend many of the herbals and supplements. Vast majority of his herbal and dietary supplement recommendations are not substantiated by scientific literature. Furthermore, the amount of herbals and supplements this guy recommends would cost a fortune each month and take like 30 minutes just to ingest each day.

Overall, I’m disappointed in this book. I’m really hoping for a keto diet book that sticks to the evidence and doesn’t demonize the health profession like other keto books.

Some good info mixed in with a bit of iffy stuff

The good news? You can speed up the narration to twice as fast and get through the book in half the time. That’s how slow the narrator is. Also, there is some good information regarding collagen and macro information, but there’s also sections about how helpful essential oils are, and how to align your chi. If you are not into that alternative stuff, there is still enough good info here to make it a worthwhile read.

Great book on Keto! The best I’ve read yet!!

I really liked the fact that Dr. Axe included things outside of diet like meditation, Bible reading, and taking warm baths with Epson salt! I know that being healthy for the rest of my life will incorporate all of these not just what I eat and I feel he did a great job giving a variety of foods on the different sample menus that he had in the book! I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to change their life for the better and someone looking for a whole life approach.

Amazing so much great info!

Joined Dr. Axe's street team before his book was released and been doing his keto for about 1 month and have lost 10lbs! Getting so close to my goal of losing 100lbs I set in 2015 only about 14lbs to go! This book is amazing and has so much good info not just on keto but supplements and oils! I actually got the audible book and listened to it then purchased the actual book so I could highlight all the good info to go find it easier! Even if you are not doing Keto there is so much good info in this book I recomend it!

Cancer Survivor

I am a four year cancer survivor and this is the first time I feel like I understand what happened to my body and how to move forward. I finally dropped 25 pounds and I have been stuck since the holidays addicted to sugar again!

Thank you for giving me the knowledge and understanding of the best Keto diet plan! I have been converted to work with my body, mind and spirit to live my best life.

Thank you,
Diane

Spock. Would’ve rated better with Dr. Axe’s voice.

Trying not to be too nit-picky, but I want to be honest. The narrator would be perfect for a Star Trek or similar fiction novel. However, he was a little distracting with his Spock-like vocal roll at the end of most words or when ending sentences. He mispronounced a few words too, which I think is important since it’s an audio book. I’ve watched multiple Dr. Axe videos and the pronunciation should match his. Otherwise this book is a superior reference for Keto done right. I’m waiting for my hardcover tomorrow as I just couldn’t get past the voice. Plus, I’d like to highlight some excellent points. Here’s to attempting keto life!

Great and detailed book

I had a million questions about the Keto Diet, especially how to understand and survive the keto flu. Dr. Axe laid everything out in an easy to understand format. Excellent recipes and shopping lists. I’m 20 pounds in about two and a half weeks. I love it and recommended it to everyone I know struggling with losing weight.
