We’re just days away from the release of my highly-anticipated new book with my coauthor Dr. Eric Westman entitled Keto Clarity: Your Definitive Guide to the Benefits of a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet featuring frequent “Moment of Clarity” quotes from 22 of the world’s biggest experts on the subject of ketogenic diets, including Dr. David Perlmutter, Dr. William Davis, Dr. Dominic D’Agostino, Nora Gedgaudas, Dr. Mary Newport, Dr. Ron Rosedale, Dr. Terry Wahls, and more. I simply cannot wait to get this out there as a resource for people desiring to be in a state of ketosis for all the amazing improvements it has to offer people who earnestly give it a try for themselves. Most of you already know that this has been the heart and soul of everything I’ve been doing the past few years following my successful n=1 experiment exhaustively testing and researching this topic. And now I’ve wrapped up all the practical tips for what it takes to get into ketosis, the glaring mistakes people make trying to do this, responses to criticisms about very low-carb ketogenic diets, and so much more into one complete package that you can use as your go-to resource on this topic.
For those of you wanting to get the hardback copy of Keto Clarity, here are the links to the various websites carrying it ready to ship on the release date this Tuesday, August 5, 2014:
It will also be available in Barnes & Noble stores, Books-A-Million, independent bookstores, as well as 17 test market Costco stores located in Fresno, CA, Lacey, WA, Citrus Heights, CA, Phoenix, AZ, Frederick, MD, Rockwall, TX, San Marcos, CA, Cedar Park, TX, Spartanburg, SC, Lenexa, KS, Cordova, TN, West Des Moines, IA, Roseburg, OR, Lancaster, PA, Lake Elsinore, CA, San Dimas, CA and Lexington, KY. If you live in or around these areas, then I would appreciate it if you get your copies of Keto Clarity from Costco. If we can sell out quickly at each of these locations, then Costco will bring the book into ALL of their stores. THIS WOULD BE A HUGE OPPORTUNITY to share about low-carb, high-fat diets on a much grander scale! Thank you in advance for your support in helping to make this happen.
I gave a copy of Keto Clarity to my primary care physician last week while we were at the doctor’s office for a checkup on Christine and when he saw “keto” in the title he responded, “As in ketogenic diets?” I responded in the affirmative and he blew me away when he said, “Oh, I’ve been hearing so many great things about ketogenic diets being used therapeutically for health purposes.” WHOA! This is a traditionally-trained medical doctor who has been somewhat skeptical of the whole low-carb, high-fat message despite the fact that I’ve shown him through my own experience as one of his patients that this way of eating has been a healthy alternative to the low-fat, grain-based diets that are the default for every patient. Maybe things are changing with him and other doctors who are ready to see their patients improve through the strategic use of a ketogenic diet. That’s one of the goals of my new book.
It’s going to be quite busy for me in the release week and following with podcast interviews, speaking appearances, book signings, and more, but I wanted to keep you updated on all the latest that is happening. The most asked question I’ve been receiving from people lately is “Will Keto Clarity be available in the Kindle e-book version?” Absolutely and it’s RIGHT HERE. If you prefer to get your e-books from iBooks, then you can get Keto Clarity from the iTunes store. If you’d like to read the Introduction to Keto Clarity, then GET IT HERE.
Plus, by popular demand, the Audible audiobook version read by me will be available by mid-August according to my publisher (I’ll link it HERE when it becomes available). I recorded the audiobook for Cholesterol Clarity about six months after it released and so we decided to make the unabridged audiobook available at the same time as the hardback and e-book for Keto Clarity. Reading a book and trying not to sound boring is a lot more challenging than you would think even for someone who does podcasts as much as I do. I was able to infuse a lot of my personality into it to keep your interest while listening. Hopefully you guys enjoy it! Listen to me read Chapter 1: What Is Ketosis and Why Do You Want It?
While I aired the raw footage from the actual interview I conducted with the various experts featured in my last book Cholesterol Clarity on “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show” podcast last year, this time around I decided to conduct BRAND NEW INTERVIEWS that run about a half-hour and are done in a casual style with most of the 22 experts quoted throughout Keto Clarity. Here are the ones I’ve aired so far as well as the schedule of the rest of the experts who will appear on the show in the coming weeks:
You may have already heard me making the podcasting rounds already for Keto Clarity. But in case you haven’t, here are the awesome ones I’ve done so far:
I’ve got tons more lined up that will air in the coming weeks (all of them will be posted on the Keto Clarity Media Page), including Dave Asprey’s “Bulletproof Radio,” Mark Sisson’s “The Primal Blueprint Podcast,” Vinnie Tortorich and Anna Vocino’s “Angriest Trainer,” Jonathan Bailor’s “SANE Solution Show,” Tony Federico’s “Paleo Magazine Radio,” Angelo Coppola’s “Latest In Paleo,” Kaila Prins’ “Finding Your Hunger,” and many more! It’s been so much fun talking to my fellow podcasters about all the positive aspects of ketosis on all their wonderful podcasts, so tune in to them if you want to get a feel for what my new book is about. And we’re not giving up on attempting to get on some of the huge national television health shows like The Dr. Oz Show (who has NEVER done a show on ketosis before) and/or The Doctors. My mom secretly hopes I can get on The Rachael Ray Show. HA! We’ll see about that mom.
And finally, I’ll be making some public appearances at various bookstores and other lecture/Q&A/book signing and I wanted to highlight a few of them for you that are coming up:
My publisher is working on a lot more events, especially in the southeast area where I live. So be sure to check the Keto Clarity Events Calendar to see where I’ll be heading next. I would LOVE to meet so many of you and personally thank you for your unwavering support of my work. If you are interested in bringing me to your area to do a lecture/book signing event, then e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll connect you with my publisher about making it a reality.
Let me just say that YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME and I’m grateful to you all for giving me a renewed purpose and motivation each and every day to keep doing what I’m doing. Here’s to hoping for unprecedented success for Keto Clarity and perhaps even hitting the New York Times bestsellers list with your help. I LOVE YOU GUYS!
