KetoCure Cover

Pre-order your copy of my new book that will be available on September 26, 2017.  

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:

  • Alzheimer’s
  • Epilepsy
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Hypercholesterolemia
  • Hypertension
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Thyroiditis
  • 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.

Why Be In Ketosis? Part V – The Yin & Yang of Glucose (Amylin)

What is the Yin & Yang of glucose control?  It is Glucagon & Amylin.  We talked about glucagon in an earlier post. Today we’ll balance the world of blood sugar with Amylin talk.  Don’t go getting hypoglycemic with all the excitement  . . . !!

Skinny on Sweeteners in 13 Minutes

 


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 old-man-sour-faceraise 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:

The Skinny On Sweeteners

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.

Keto//OS Orange Cream Soda . . . Oh, Yeah!

Ok, for those of you who are using Keto/OS (I commend you for your insightful use of the next step in ketogenic metabolism bio-hacking), I have discovered one of my new favorite mixes. (If you’ve already tried this mix, then where have you been and why didn’t you tell me about it?!)

Enter Keto//OS – exogenous ketones that aid in shifting you into ketosis. Yes, they actually do work and usually bump my ketones up 0.5 mmol/L to 1.5 mmol/L when I use them.

So, I mixed my orange flavored Keto//OS version 2.1 with Diet A&W Cream Soda, and voala, Orange Cream that takes me back to childhood memories!!   You gotta try this.

KetoOS Cream Soda

As you know, I have no problem with using Diet Dr. Pepper, Diet Coke (NOT Coke Zero!), Diet Mug Rootbeer & Diet A&W Cream Soda.  The sweetener that these four sodas use does not kick you out of ketosis, and I am OK with my patients using them on my Ketogenic diet. (Yes, I am OK with most of my patient’s using aspartame. Yes, I’ve actually read the studies . . . have you?!  That’s why I’m OK with it’s use.)

If you haven’t tried Keto//OS yet, you can get your sample here.
