The Ketogenic diet has been wildly popular for several years. In fact, you may feel like everyone you know is on the keto diet—or at least has tried to live life on the keto diet. That’s where many people run into a pitfall. Keto is often seen as being unsustainable for the long term. That’s where nutritionist, personal trainer, and health coach Tara Garrison comes in with her expert advice about the proven benefits of a shorter-duration keto plan. In Short-Term Keto, Garrison explains why the keto diet makes sense and shares success stories from people who’ve made it work. Then she explains how to increase your chance for success if you’re new to keto or how to reintroduce carbs if you’ve used keto to meet your goal and need to maintain your health and weight loss.
Garrison’s plan enables you to customize your meals for the carb count that’s right for you. She describes different eating models—One Meal a Day, Targeted Ketogenic Diet, and Cyclical Ketogenic Diet—so that you can listen to your body’s cues to follow the plan that suits you best. She even includes recommendations for athletes whose carb needs may vary because of events, performance goals, and weight changes. Garrison’s delicious recipes, complete with carb counts, will help you find the inspiration to feed yourself well for the long term!
