The ketogenic diet isn’t just a great tool for helping people lose weight and feel their best; it’s also an extremely effective method for treating the common “diseases of civilization.” The Keto Cure will give readers the prescription they need to heal their bodies by eating plenty of fat and moderating protein and carbs.
I’ve been advocating a low-carb, high-fat diet in my clinical practice for over fifteen years, helping people address their health problems by making better food choices. I teamed up with bestselling low-carb author and podcaster Jimmy Moore to create a top-50 health podcast espousing the benefits of eating keto. Now, for the first time, I’ve taken my years of clinical experience, put everything down on paper, and create a how-to guide that details all the ways in which the ketogenic diet can help remedy common ailments.
The Keto Cure details the science behind the keto diet’s effectiveness at treating a wide range of diseases, including:
Fatty liver disease
Type 2 diabetes
and many more
The Keto Cure also outlines practical tips gleaned from Dr. Nally’s fifteen-plus years in medical practice, as well as Moore’s ten-plus years as a health and wellness podcaster, on overcoming the common pitfalls that people experience when adapting to a high-fat way of eating, including fatigue and keto flu. This helpful information, combined with a wide variety of delicious keto recipes from international bestselling cookbook author Maria Emmerich, makes The Keto Cure a complete resource for healing oneself with the ketogenic diet.
Listen and watch as we talk about how ketosis, or the absence thereof plays a role in the formation of the Diseases of Civilization (It’s not rocket science, or maybe it is?)
We touch on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, carbohydrate restriction, the use of protein and even exercise (Did you say “eggs are sides . . .” or exercise?). So pull up a piece of string cheese and spend 20 minutes that may just change your life.
You can find the vitamin supplements that Dr Nally developed and uses himself and with his patients at KetoLiving.com.
Listen to KetoTalk Podcast #32 where we talk about hereditary angio-edema, adequate ketone ranges, statin use while in ketosis and healthy keto questions. You can listen in by going to KetoTalk.com or you can listen in on iTunes.
“About 40 percent of my older patient population who take statins while eating ketogenic experience some form of myalgia they didn’t have before. And there’s an amplified side effect profile: muscle ache, joint pain, generalized fatigue, liver enzyme elevation, and cloudy headed.” — Dr. Adam Nally
I am frequently asked about the sweeteners that can be used with a low carbohydrate diet. There are a number of sweeteners available that are used in “LowCarb” pre-processed foods like shakes or bars, or in cooking as alternatives to sugar. However, most of them raise insulin levels without raising blood sugar and are not appropriate for use with a true low-carbohydrate/ketogenic diet. You can see and print the article I published clarifying which sweeteners you can use and which ones to avoid here:
Of recent note, I’ve been asked about the insulin response that occurs in the study found here quoted by Dr. Jason Fung in his wonderful book, The Obesity Code.
First, it is essential to note that both the crystalline form of Stevia and the aspartame used in the form of Equal, also a crystal, contain either dextrose or malto-dextrin as the crystallizing agent. Both dextrose and malto-dextrin have a known insulin spike equal to table sugar. You can see that in my article link above. Watch the video and we’ll discuss which forms of Stevia and aspartame don’t raise insulin and haven’t been a problem with myself or my patients in the last 10 years.
