THE SIMPLEST & MOST EFFECTIVE KETO FAT LOSS PLAN
Feeling totally lost and overwhelmed in the sea of conflicting info out there about keto?
Tired of counting macros, carbs, fat, protein, and obsessing (and worrying!) about every molecule of food you eat?
Ready to make things SIMPLE and UNCOMPLICATED?
If so, DR. WESTMAN’S PAGE 4 DIET IS FOR YOU.
If you’ve spent any amount of time in the ketogenic/low carb community and you don’t know the name Eric Westman, check your pulse; you might be dead. Dr. Westman has been conducting clinical research on LCHF/keto for 20 years. (Here’s just a handful of his work.) He was co-author of The New Atkins for a New You, as well as Cholesterol Clarity and Keto Clarity. (Keto Clarity is having a 5-year update/revision soon. I know Dr. Westman and the other author, Jimmy Moore, and there were a few things in the original version that they’d say a little differently now, so a revision is a good thing. And Cholesterol Clarity was dynamite as originally written. If you’re worried about “high” cholesterol on keto, get that book and read it, STAT.) In Dr. Westman’s own words, The New Atkins for a New You is the best mainstream book ever written on nutrition—not because he’s a co-author, but because Stephen Phinney, MD, PhD, and Jeff Volek, PhD, RD, wrote the chapters on protein and fat. (His words, not mine.)
Bottom line: Dr. Westman knows his stuff. He’s a past president of the Obesity Medicine Association (which has endorsed a low carb/ketogenic diet among their other strategies) and has a 6-month waiting list at his clinic at Duke University, where he specializes exclusively in helping people lose weight, reverse type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome, and other related issues. He’s helped thousands of patients lose tens of thousands of pounds, and now the way he does it is available for you.
Dr. Westman is famous for “page 4,” which is the food list he gives his patients. In the handout he gives patients, it’s more like pages 4, 5 and 6, but internet shorthand for it has become “page 4.” He recently boiled it down to one page – one side of a standard 8.5 x 11” sheet of paper. It is the simplest, most straightforward, and most effective way to do keto—and now it’s available for YOU. 20 grams total carbs (not net!) per day—or less. No nonsense, no gimmicks, no confusion. It is also the strictest form of keto, but guess what? That’s why it’s so effective. If it’s not on page 4, you don’t eat it. There’s no guesswork, no counting, no tracking, no obsession, no fear, and no need to let your entire life revolve around what you are and are not eating. Work the plan and the plan will work.
If you’ve been struggling with fat loss on keto for a while, this could be very helpful for you. You will likely be very surprised at what’s on page 4—and maybe even more so by what’s not on page 4. Sorry to break your hearts, but butter, heavy cream, cheese, and mayonnaise are not unlimited. You know what you are told to eat as much of as you like? Meat! Meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs, so if you’ve been limiting protein and loading everything up with added fat instead because you’ve bought into the fearmongering out there about protein “turning into sugar” or “kicking you out of ketosis,” it might be time for a course correction. (To clarify: if whatever version of keto you’re following is working for you and you’re happy with the results you’re getting, keep going! “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” I’m sharing about page 4 specifically for people who are having a hard time losing body fat – assuming, that is, that they have a substantial amount to lose, not just 5 or so “vanity pounds.”)
If this sounds intriguing to you, you can purchase the famous Page 4 Diet for $9.99. I know ten dollars seems like a lot for one page of information, but you know you can always expect honesty from me, which is why I’m being very clear that this is literally one page (one side!) of paper. And I’m not kidding when I say it’s the simplest and most straightforward way to do keto for fat loss. Plus, people have spent far more on all kinds of gadgets and gizmos, books and programs, that have failed them. Fancy-schmancy technology, trackers, apps, and for what? To still be stymied and not understand why they’re not losing weight. (Lack of fat loss or slow fat loss is the most common reason people contact me for help.) Or, you can get Page 4 for a relatively small amount of money and be on your way to keto success!
There are images and lists claiming to be page 4 all over Pinterest and various other places on the interwebs. Accept no imitations! If it didn’t come from Dr. Westman or from this download site, I can’t guarantee it’s the real thing, with the version of keto he uses in his own clinic. (I would say he created it, but he credits Dr. Robert Atkins and the head nurse at the Atkins Center, Jackie Eberstein, for most of it. Yes, he learned about keto from the late, truly great Dr. Atkins and Jackie. [What, you thought he discovered it all on his own? Heehee.] I’ve written in the past and still believe that the good ol’ Atkins diet is a GREAT way to get started on keto, especially for people totally overwhelmed by conflicting info out there.)
By the way: if you’re wondering why page 4 is so strict—20 grams total carbs per day, maximum, it’s because Dr. Westman has a very broad patient base. All walks of life, all income and education levels. Some of them will not be able to implement a plan that requires them to track every molecule of food they eat or to prick their fingers multiple times a day. He knows not everyone needs to live at 20g or fewer per day, but he starts everyone out that way because when carb intake is that low, you will be in ketosis. You will be burning fat. You will have no need to measure ketones, track your food, weigh and measure your portions—none of that. If you stick to page 4, It. Will. Work. It is beautiful in its simplicity.
