-Powerfully suppressing appetite
-Effectively stabilizing blood sugar
-Naturally enhancing mood
-Dramatically reducing fat storage
The Ketogenic Diet includes a quick-start guide to rapid weight loss, a surefire plan to eliminate carbs and fat-burning advice that works. Using the recipes and tips in this book, you will learn to avoid trigger foods, gauge the difference between good and bad fats, and steer clear of nutrient-poor carbs.

As a professional model, Nikki Sharp traveled constantly, barely slept, skipped meals, and relied on quick fixes to stay skinny, all of which took a toll on her physical and emotional health. Realizing she needed to make a serious change, she began to study integrative nutrition—and learned that the key to weight loss, radiant skin, and overall well-being is not starving yourself but eating. That’s right: eating! Sharp created her detox plan based on the knowledge that in the right combinations, real whole foods—grains, vegetables, fruits, and spices—can aid digestion, burn body fat, flush out toxins, reduce bloating, banish fatigue, and clear up acne.
Unlike other cleanses, The 5-Day Real Food Detox allows you to eat five times a day—and shed a pound a day—with meals and snacks developed by Sharp (and backed by a nutritionist and a registered dietician). Even better, the recipes, including Love Pancakes, Spinach & Chickpea Hummus, Black Bean Burgers, Cauliflower Mash, and Taco Bowl, have been taste-tested by Sharp’s many of 300,000-plus Instagram followers, who have done the plan and seen amazing results. In The 5-Day Real Food Detox, you’ll discover
• nutrient-dense foods that encourage detoxification and weight loss
• the facts on juice, smoothie, tea, and raw food cleanses
• yummy foods to substitute when you crave unhealthy ones
• ingredients to avoid and how to decode food labels
• the secret to great-tasting meals—use spices instead of salt
• strategies for lowering stress and combating insomnia
• troubleshooting for food allergies, mood swings, bloating, and other detox issues
Complete with gorgeous full-color photos, success stories, shopping lists, and meal plans, The 5-Day Real Food Detox lays the groundwork for eating well and feeling wonderful for the rest of your life!
