In this groundbreaking guide, Dr. Mercola, leading natural-health practitioner, explains how nearlyall disease is caused by defective metabolic processes. He shows you how to take control of your health simply by giving your body the proper fuel- and it is not what you have been led to believe for over a half-century. A ketogenic diet, very low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats, is the way to optimize the pathways that suppress disease and supporthealing.
Our Standard American Diet (SAD) is full of hidden sugars, which cause us to become dependent on burning glucose as our main source of fuel. This pattern creates insulin resistance and contributes to many chronic health conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, and neurological disease like Alzheimer’s disease and brain fog as well as cancer.
His comprehensive approach to improving mitochondrial function by switching from a low fat SAD, to a high healthy fat, low carbohydrate diet helps improve many health conditions. If you suffer from weight gain, high blood pressure, heart disease, cognitive disorders, low energy or even cancer, this revolutionary lifestyle change can improve and even reverse the most serious illnesses.
Dr. Mercola outlines how to get started and stay on track with abundant resources and meal plans that every one of us can incorporate into our lives. Beware; if you are convinced that a low fat diet is the only way to live healthy, you will be in for ashock!
We believe this is a valuable read if you want to retrain your body to be more efficient in energy production and less dependent on glucose, improve your energy and focus and reduce your risk for all major chronic illness.
