New in paperback, from Dr. Joseph Mercola, one of the world's foremost authorities on alternative health: a guide to using the principles of ketogenic eating and meal planning and timing to treat disease, promote weight loss, and optimize health.
Fasting is one of the most powerful metabolic interventions there is - one of the single best things you can do for your health. Strategically timed and planned fasts dovetail perfectly with a ketogenic diet, as they activate your body's fat-burning mode. This in turn can ward off insulin resistance, reduce oxidative stress and inflammation, optimize brain function, prevent neurological problems, support weight loss, and more.
In this in-depth yet accessible guide, Dr. Joseph Mercola explores the profound health benefits that result when ketogenic living and well-planned fasting are combined. Part I of the book explains why this works. Part II shows how to put keto-fasting to work for your own health, with a specific protocol and practical guidelines to follow. Topics include:
- How our food is making us sick and what we can do about it
- The physiology and mechanisms of fasting, including stem cell activation
- How the cyclical ketogenic diet - with carefully timed meals - differs from the conventional keto diet
- How fasting can help treat diseases from diabetes to fatty liver to Alzheimer's
- And much more
