Let me cut straight to the facts; the Keto diet has been the most successful diet for my clients regarding weight loss. Even my best friend has lost 15 kg since COVID, and she has tried everything under the sun.

Here is our short-formed bulletproof Keto Diet guide to lose weight and reboot your metabolism.


How Does Weight Loss Normally Work?

  • Calories in, calories out

  • Eat less calories, burn the same amount of energy

  • Eat the same amount of calories, burn energy at a higher rate

  • Burn the weight loss candle from both ends

The Standard American Diet and Why You Can't Lose Weight

  • Carbohydrates and the problem with insulin

  • If you want to burn more fat, you have to control your insulin levels

The Keto Alternative

  • Ketosis explained: Burn fat instead of sugar for energy

  • Ketoacidosis = excessive ketones in the blood = RARE

  • Ketosis = more common = healthy

Keep This in Mind Before You Start Your Keto Diet

  • Change your lifestyle instead of going on another diet

  • Believe that the keto lifestyle works

The 5 Most Common Myths that Stopped People from Trying the Keto Diet


Myth No.1: I'm going to die

  • Ketoacidosis is a very rare condition, and it primarily affects people with type 1 diabetes

  • If you're not a type 1 diabetes patient, you have nothing to worry about

Myth No.2: I'm not going to enjoy my food

  • Most of the food that you are already enjoying is very fatty and very salty; you're halfway there

Myth No.3: High-fat foods are universally bad for you

  • Current research begs to differ: it turns out that sugar and a high-carb diet is the reason why people are sick

  • Fat can be very good for you

Myth No.4: It's very hard to stay on a keto diet

  • There are many high-carb, high-starch foods like rice you could easily replace with keto-friendly ingredients

  • Just because you're used to a certain way of eating doesn't mean there is no keto substitute

Myth No.5: I don't have the time to go keto


You don't have to change your schedule; you just have to zero in on your preferred taste profile and find keto ingredients that meet that flavour profile

How Much Weight Should You Expect to Lose on the Keto Diet?


Make no mistake; the keto diet works just as most other diets on the market work. Think about it. If people did not lose weight after they bought a diet book and carried out its tips and tricks, that book would soon be out of print.


The great thing about the global market for weight-loss products (and all the other markets, for that matter) is that it has a self-adjusting and self-policing internal mechanism. This is called "supply and demand." If a particular product doesn't do what it claims to do, few people will buy it. The word will get out, and people will stop buying that product.


This is why I could say with full conviction that most weight-loss books out there work. Most of those programs do deliver.


The problem is there are two timelines involved. You can't just focus on the first timeline. I am, of course, talking about short-term weight loss. Sure, you go on a diet, and within the first three weeks, you lose quite a bit of weight. Awesome! The problem is, can you sustain it, so you keep the weight off for life?


Sadly, when the conversation turns in that direction, most people fail with most diets. There I said it! The reason is simple. Many of us start to fight ourselves when we try to change ourselves. We're used to doing things a certain way. We have certain food habits just as we develop certain life habits. We are the products of our habits. There's no need to deny this because it's true.


We can make all sorts of excuses. We can come up with all kinds of seemingly reasonable-sounding justifications, but at the end of the day, we are the products of our habits.


The great thing about the keto diet is that it enables us to embrace these habits that we usually feel we should apologize for. If you like fatty foods, then you, like most other people, would probably be talking about feeling guilty that you eat certain things.


You might even try to sweep it under the rug. You might even try to distract people in discussions, but the truth is, you're entitled to that. That's part of your flavour preferences. That's part of who you are.


The keto diet enables you to embrace that within a certain framework. As long as you stick within this framework, your love for fatty food or food that makes you feel guilty will help you lose weight.


Short-Term Weight Loss versus Long-Term Weight Loss


I can say with complete conviction that you can lose quite a significant amount of weight in the short term with the keto diet. Don't be surprised if you lose ten, fifteen, or even thirty pounds or more. If you pair your new keto diet with a moderate-exercise program, expect even more weight loss.


What excites me about this diet is not the short-term weight loss. Let's be honest with ourselves here. Most other diets can deliver on this. As I mentioned, most other diets won't be on the market if they cannot deliver some initial short-term weight loss.


The keto diet is no exception to this. On the other hand, what makes it exceptional is its ability to deliver sustainable weight loss. In other words, you lose weight and keep the pounds off. This makes it exciting, and on this count, I cannot give you a range of how much weight you could lose. It all boils down to whether you can commit to sustainable weight loss using the keto diet.


If you're ready to commit and if you have decided to go on the keto diet, click here to download a bulletproof keto diet plan.


This plan enables you to fully prepare to maximize your chances of success with the keto diet. Please understand that, just like any other diet, if you go into the keto diet completely unprepared, chances are you will fail.


Again, we're not talking about short-term weight loss. We're not talking about the few pounds you lose in the first few weeks. We're talking about the pounds coming back as you stumble and fall later. That's when the whole diet becomes unsustainable.


Thankfully, using our framework, you will get a bulletproof way of losing weight and keeping it off. You have to get into the keto diet the right way, and this framework enables you to do that.
