Why did Jimmy Moore and Eric Westman feel the need to produce Keto Clarity? Do we REALLY need another book about ketogenic diets?

Maybe they know that there are many people out there who think that the best a ketogenic diet can do is to cause bad breath, and at worst-- raise your cholesterol and risk of heart disease, and lead to fatal ketoacidosis.

Others have heard that a ketogenic diet is only useful for treating seizures in young children, and that it doesn’t work at all for obesity or diabetes in adults. The common belief is that we ALL need to follow a low fat or vegetarian diet in order to stay healthy.

Not so!

As a cardiologist I find a role for the low carbohydrate diet to reduce inflammation, shift small dense LDL to a less atherogenic pattern, and to reduce “risk factors” of obesity, high blood glucose, diabetes, and elevated blood pressure. It is the ketone that plays a role in the nutrigenomic "turn on" as well as the metabolic efficiency.

When I wear my "exercise physiologist" hat I have discovered the benefits of the ketoadaptive state for endurance training and competition.

And then as a nutritionist I have found the effectiveness of a low carbohydrate ketogenic diet for treating many disorders from Autism to Alzheimer’s. The properly formulated ketogenic diet can reduce seizures in children and increase fertility for hopeful parents-to-be. And for certain pregnant patients with gestational diabetes, or outright clinical type 1 or type 2 diabetes, there is also potential benefit to the mother and fetus. Now the ketogenic diet is being looked at as another therapeutic modality to prevent, retard, and maybe even cure some forms of cancer.

There's a book called "The man who mistook his wife for a hat" and you just think - what on earth is that about? You don't have this worry with a Jimmy Moore/Eric Westman collaboration - the book is exactly what it says on the cover: the definitive guide to the benefits of a low-carb, high-fat diet.

Keto Clarity follows the super reader friendly format of Cholesterol Clarity. Jimmy does what he does best - interview experts (22 this time) and then share their insights, as he and Eric navigate you through everything you could ever want to know about ketosis...

What is ketosis? Why would you want to be in ketosis? How do you know when you're in ketosis? What's the difference between ketosis and ketoacidosis? How can you find your carb tolerance level? What's the right protein level for you? What about Intermittent Fasting? What are the five mistakes that low carb enthusiasts most often make? What are the top 10 things to check if you're not staying in ketosis?

The book format is just so readable and memorable. There are doctors notes throughout and 'box outs' to clarify points. The chapter summaries are so useful as a reminder of what has just been covered and they provide great check-backs for future reference.
There's a handy KETO acronym to keep you on track: Keep carbs low; Eat more fat; Test Ketones often; Overdoing protein is bad. There is also a frequently asked questions section, so that you can see others have the same questions and there's a success stories chapter, so that you can see the experience of other people.

With Dr William Davis and Dr David Perlmutter on the panel, you know you've got carbohydrate covered from a body and brain perspective.

I was trying to think of flowery things to say but come on! This book is just THE BOMB! I read it as someone who has learned A LOT about Nutritional Ketosis by following Jimmy and some of the doctors and other experts who contributed to this book. I loved that it wasn't just a "been there, heard that" overview of Ketosis and what it can do for us. Jimmy and Dr. Westman manage to go deeper into the science for us while still bringing it around for the lay person or novice. I used to regularly test my blood ketones/mmols but the book moved me to go bust out my glucometer that has been gathering dust for a while. His step by step instructions on how to find your own thresholds for carbs and protein just got me all fired up again and will help me in my hacking pursuits. I'm no expert, I'm a soccer mom/school teacher, bio-hacker wannabe. This book is perfect for me because it clears up why some of my earnest efforts were not getting me the results I expected. It is also perfect for that family member or friend who is trying that Low Fat diet (with poor results) and doesn't understand what you are doing and doesn't really want to hear your explanations. The gift of this book to that person is a great, non-threating way to help them in their journey. As a teacher, I love a reference read that is not so dang dry!! Jimmy's personality comes through to make this an easy, enjoyable read. BONUS: if you get the audio version, Jimmy is the one who does the reading. That's kind of rare!

Men, you can skip this one unless you are looking to help someone of the female persuasion. Me and the ladies are going to chat. I'm not going to tell you much about what's in the book, because there are hundreds of reviews already, some going into that in great detail. I'm going to tell you my story:

When I was young, I could go low carb and lose weight so quickly, so easily. I loved the Atkins way, but I couldn't stay faithful. Now that I'm getting up there and coming into the beginning of menopause, things are just different. You know how it is. I have allowed so much weight to creep up on me, which led to pre-diabetes, high blood pressure, and general low quality of health. I would think to myself, "I can just go low carb and lose that, no problem." Well, it's a problem. Over the last 5 years or so, I have been losing weight, and it's been a terrible struggle with quite a bit of the roller-coaster effect. All in all, I am still down from my top weight, but not without tremendous strife. Often I would lose 10 or 12 pounds, think I was doing great, cheat once, and before I could blink an eye, 2 months had passed and I had gained that entire 12 pounds back plus 5.

So what was going on? After reading Keto Clarity, I learned that cutting my carbs just wasn't enough. I had been over eating protein, and it was converting to sugar in my body since it didn't have enough carbs to do that with. Oh, brother! No wonder I would wake up starving after a great steak and salad the night before! I was enjoying my steak a little too much. I am still tweaking my carb/protein/fat numbers, but I am getting closer to a good level for me.

Take heart, ladies. This was about a month-long process for me, and it might be for you too if you're in the same boat.
