keto clarityBy Eric Westman, M.D. and Jimmy Moore
Leading health blogger Jimmy Moore and researcher and internist
Dr. Eric C. Westman join forces again to explain the powerful therapeutic effects of a ketogenic diet–one that combines a customized carbohydrate restriction, moderation of protein intake, and real food-based fats–which is emerging in the scientific literature as a means for improving a wide range of diseases, from Type 2 diabetes to Alzheimer’s and more. Simply eating a low-carb diet alone isn’t enough, and Moore and Westman tell you why.

keto adapted

By Maria Emmerich
A ketogenic diet isn’t something new that has been recently formulated; people have been on a ketogenic diet for virtually three million years in which our brains were nurtured and evolved. Now the human brain is not only shrinking, but brain atrophy is the norm as we age and get plagued with diseases such as dementia, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. People mistakenly think that they need to eat less and exercise more to create a calorie deficit in order to lose weight. A well-formulated keto-adapted diet along with proper exercise builds muscle and muscle builds mitochondria. It is in the mitochondria where fat is oxidized so you can keep your cells and liver insulin sensitized. Weight loss and health is about healthy mitochondria and about controlling hormones and specifically insulin. This is not a diet, it is a lifestyle.

obesity codeBy Jason Fung (Author), Timothy Noakes (Foreword)
Everything you believe about how to lose weight is wrong. Weight gain and obesity are driven by hormones—in everyone—and only by understanding the effects of insulin and insulin resistance can we achieve lasting weight loss.

 

 

big fat surpriseBy Nina Teicholz
In The Big Fat Surprise, investigative journalist Nina Teicholz reveals the unthinkable: that everything we thought we knew about dietary fat is wrong. She documents how the low-fat nutrition advice of the past sixty years has amounted to a vast uncontrolled experiment on the entire population, with disastrous consequences for our health.

For decades, we have been told that the best possible diet involves cutting back on fat, especially saturated fat, and that if we are not getting healthier or thinner it must be because we are not trying hard enough. But what if the low-fat diet is itself the problem? What if the very foods we’ve been denying
ourselves—the creamy cheeses, the sizzling steaks—are themselves the key to reversing the
epidemics of obesity, diabetes, and heart disease?

why we get fatBy Gary Taubes
Building upon his critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Gary Taubes revisits the urgent question of what’s making us fat—and how we can change.

He reveals the bad nutritional science of the last century—none more damaging or misguided than the “calories-in, calories-out” model of why we get fat—and the good science that has been ignored. He also
answers the most persistent questions: Why are some people thin and others fat? What roles do exercise and genetics play in our weight? What foods should we eat, and what foods should we avoid? Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat is an essential guide to nutrition and weight management.
