Ready to Kick the Carb Monster
You have arrived at reading the reviews and probably have this book in your shopping cart. By now, you know and completely understand that diets don’t work, but life changes do. And, you fully comprehend that carbs are the culprit, good fats are not, but you are not sure how to get to the other side, cross the bridge, and embrace the Keto lifestyle without ever looking back.
The 30-Day Cleanse is only one month of a commitment, that’s it. 28 lousy days, packed with some of the most incredible food and after which you will feel better and will certainly drop some of those nasty pounds. Just 28-Days! But getting out of the carb and sugar trap isn’t easy, but you already knew that. Our addiction to processed foods, create carb monsters, and now it’s time to let this monster go, kick it to the curb, and let it get run over by a bus.
I have been on Keto almost a year, and have dropped a lot of weight, gained so much more confidence and feel like I’m in my 30’s again (almost 50). I run several 5K’s a week, and at 5’7” I can easily fit back into a size 6. I finally have all my energy back. I was done being tired, and done eating foods I just didn’t like, and riding the diet roller coaster.
Ketogenics is a sustainable life change and way of eating. If you’re still associating the word “diet” with it, you’ll quickly discover you’re dead wrong.
Keto is a commitment, you can't be 90% in and 10% still eating wheat, sugar and processed foods. It won't work. And if you believe you can't live without your precious traditional bread, this way of eating is not for you.
If you're ready for change, however, this book will help you get started, and segway you into a better and more delicious way to eat. Maria’s recipe’s will are never dull. They are creative and I love how she entices you to step out of your comfort zone to try new and different foods. I ate each and every one of them on the cleanse, and all were delicately balanced, fun, and absolutely tasty.
If you are a seasoned cook, this will also test your new way of creating outstanding dishes that everybody in your family will enjoy. No separate cooking required during this time, even for kids. In our family, everybody enjoyed the food. Win.
During the cleanse a little prep work can go a long way. Read the recipes, cut and chop whatever you can on the day prior to your cleanse weeks, many foods can be precooked or frozen (i.e. parsley, onions etc.). But also learn that this is not fast food, this is slow food. Enjoy preparing food that will nourish your body, and use the time while preparing your food, to reflect on what’s to come. Good food! And food is essential to life, and good food is essential to a happy life.
