The KetoCure: Now Available for Pre-Order

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.

KetoDynamic Successes . . .

Adam Tiffini 

As I reviewed my website recently, I realized that I have posted lots of science but I’ve never posted any success stories.  So, as patient’s are comfortable & willing to share, I will begin posting these experiences here on the blogosphere for the world to witness their successes and the power of the KetoDynamic Antidote.  

The first success story is my own.  This picture of me and my wife, were taken after I had been following a ketogenic lifestyle for about 4 years.  I dropped 60 lbs, normalized my cholesterol and blood sugar also normalized.  I couldn’t and wouldn’t recommend these lifestyle changes unless I was willing to follow them for the long haul myself. I call people following a ketogenic lifestyle for longer than a year “Ketonians.”

Not only mine, but hundreds of patient’s having similar successes have become the greatest reward to my career as a physician over the last 15 years.  They are truly the “KetoDynamic Moments” that etch themselves into my memory and have made me such an advocate of a ketogenic lifestyle.  Therefore, it is with great honor and excitement that I have been allowed to share Michelle’s story below. 

  
Michelle started seeing me in October 2015. She has struggled with weight all her life and, now in her late 40’s, weighed 201 lbs with a waist circumference of almost 36 inches and a body mass index of 32.  Her “before” picture was taken just before a Halloween activity in 2015.  Her “after” picture was taken in late March 2016.  

A simple ketogenic lifestyle change ( <20g of carbohydrates, moderate protein for her ideal body weight & increasing fat to > 60% of total calories) has produced almost 50 lbs of weight loss and 6 inches off her waist in just 5 months.  This was with dietary change only (Michelle doesn’t exercise) and she’s still losing weight.  What is dramatic, and I see it every day, is that Michelle looks younger by at least 10 years (she actually added 20 years to her life span with this weight loss already).  She feels fantastic.  Blood sugar and cholesterol are now under control and she has tremendous amounts of energy.  Her picture in March is at a body mass index of 29.
Michelle doesn’t calorie restrict. She just eats until she is full.  Congratulations, Michelle!!! And, keep up the great work.

If you’d like to share your KetoDynamic successes with me and my audience, please let me know.

Thinking Outside of the Box

Nine dots

The image above has nine dots within a square.  Your task, using only four lines is to connect ALL nine dots WITHOUT ever raising your pen, pencil or finger (Please don’t use a sharpie on your computer screen . . . it doesn’t come off).

You may have seen this puzzle previously . . . it’s made its rounds in corporate training circles. But the underlying principle remains true.  The solution requires you to expand your thinking or to “think outside the box.”out-of-the-box

Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect. (Mark Twain)

Why should we limit ourselves to thinking outside the box.  Can’t we just get rid of the box?

True discovery consists in seeing what everyone has seen . . . then, thinking what no one has thought.

The answer can be found when those four lines are used beyond the box our mind creates:

Nine dots solution

What good has the box done us?  People were burned at the stake because they refused to believe the Earth was not the center of the universe. People were beheaded because they had a sneaking suspicion that the world was not flat.

Why is it so very hard to accept that our weight gain and diabetes are driven by a hormonal signal, and not by gluttony or caloric intake of fat?  The definition of insanity is doing the same thing repetitively and expecting a different outcome.  How long have you been restricting calories and fat with only minimal or no improvement in your weight, blood sugar, cholesterol or general feeling of health?diabetes global warming

The main problem with the current thought model, or dogma, on the obesity’s cause is that it does not account for metabolic syndrome.  Metabolic syndrome is insulin resistance.  It is an over production of insulin in the presence of ANY form of carbohydrate (sugar or starch).

In the practice of medicine over the last 15 years, I noticed that a very interesting pattern emerged.  There was always a spike in fasting and postprandial insulin levels 5-10 years prior to the first abnormal fasting and postprandial blood sugars.  These patients were exercising regularly and eating a diet low in fat.  But they saw continued weight gain and progressed down the path of metabolic syndrome.  10-15 years later, they fall into the classification of type II diabetes.  What I now lovingly refer to as stage IV insulin resistance.

The only thing that seems to halt this progressive process with any degree of success is carbohydrate restriction.  Fasting insulin levels return to normal, weight falls off, and the diseases of civilizations seem to disappear as insidiously as they arose.

So you tell me, is the world flat?  Is the Earth the center of the universe?
