Unlocking the Keto Code
Examine the real evidence about the ketogenic diet—a style of eating that heavily restricts carbohydrate intake to make the body burn fat for fuel. Ketosis is promoted to offer a variety of health benefits--weight loss, reduced risk of illness, and enhanced energy. Discover the biological mechanism that makes keto diets so successful: a cellular process known as “mitochondrial uncoupling.” As it turns out, ketones are not the magical fuel source they’ve been made out to be; in fact, the body cannot run on ketones and fats alone. Over the long term, a very low carb-diet can lead to muscle wasting and poor cognitive health.
Luckily, you don’t have to restrict all carbs to reap the benefits of ketosis; you simply have to have enough ketones and other plant compounds—polyphenols--present in your body to “unlock” the process of mitochondrial uncoupling. In this insightful, empowering, eminently practical book. Help your clients ignite the process, from feasting on plant-based foods (carbs that are typically off-limits on a keto diet) to enjoying ketone generating foods such as goat and sheep milk products, to implementing a timed eating schedule.
Grounded in cutting-edge science, this is the book for all the people who have tried and failed on a keto diet; for vegetarians and vegans who want to go keto; and for anyone who wants to lose weight and enjoy better health while eating a wide variety of foods. Implement food lists, hacks, and all-new recipes and help your clients going keto easy and enjoyable for the first time.
