Yesterday I interviewed Jimmy Moore on his new book Keto Clarity. Today I’ll publish my review of Keto Clarity. If this is your first time hearing the word Keto I’ll explain it. I’ll convince you why you want to check out Keto Clarity. Even if you are not overweight. There is a lot more to the ketogenic diet than weight loss. That’s icing on the low carb cake.
What is this keto diet anyway. Well I’ve talked about is any times before on my journey of weight loss. Our good friends over at Wikipedia define it as such.
Ketosis/kɨˈtoʊsɨs/ is a metabolic state where most of the body’s energy supply comes from ketone bodies in the blood, in contrast to a state of glycolysis where blood glucose provides most of the energy. It is characterised by serum concentrations of ketone bodies over 0.5 millimolar with low and stable levels of insulin and blood glucose.
So it’s an alternative fuel source for the body. Switching from glucose to ketone bodies. Switching to high-octane in my opinion. How do you get into a ketogenic state? In easy terms you eat low carbs, moderate protein and high fat. Notice I didn’t give specific numbers there. For each person those numbers will be different. In Keto Clarity Jimmy covers the many ways to measure ketone levels. He goes over which ones work best and which are not that good. You can wing it but it’s best to test.
With Keto Clarity Jimmy knocked out a tome of wisdom. He gathered the best and brightest in the low carb field. He researched all the science. He himself conducted a year-long experiment with thousands of data points. I do not have the patience to weigh myself everyday. Measure blood glucose and ketone levels more than once a day. His N=1 experiment was detailed and impressive. In Keto Clarity he not only covers the basics of getting into ketosis but some great tips of optimizing it. He digs deep into the science on why it works and is better for humans. How does a keto diet affect different illness like epilepsy and schizophrenia?
If you geek on the science behind why things work you will love this. If you just like to know what to do you will love this book. With shopping lists and sample meal plans you can hit the ground running. I like that the chapters are short and to the point. The end of every chapter is a bullet point list of that chapter. That is the best thing I’ve seen in a book. If you’re not familiar with Jimmy’s work you don’t know how entertaining he is. That comedy comes out in this book well. I learn best when It has some humor in it. I could never learn from Ben Stein. So go check out Keto Clarity and give it a try.
