Master the easier, smarter way to achieve ketosis

Done properly, intermittent fasting will put your body into a state of ketosis where it burns fat instead of glucose for energy. It’s a very effective and safe way to lose body fat while retaining muscle mass. Detailing everything you need to know to start intermittent fasting today, this book offers practical advice on how to integrate it into your lifestyle and tips to make your fast go smoothly.

Intermittent fasting isn’t a restrictive diet. You can eat the foods you want! What changes is when you eat, not what you eat. There are no meals to track or calories to count, and it will actually lower your food expenses!

Guiding you step by step through the entire process, Jump Start Ketosis explains how to:

• Ramp up your “fat-burning machine”
• Avoid feeling weak or lethargic
• Lower your insulin levels
• Turn stored food into energy
• Lessen your hunger cravings
