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.
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.
What is the difference between ketoacidosis, starvation ketosis, and nutritional ketogenesis? What are these ketone bodies? How do we make them? How do we get them? How do we measure them? And, just what do they do?
Keto Clarity provides the answers. Understanding these distinctions allows the practitioner to serve his patients with an expanded spectrum of nutritional therapies, and gives many discouraged, obese, tired, and depressed patients new hope.
Keto Clarity should be a required read for physicians and registered dieticians, and is highly recommended for all health care providers, patients, and anyone curious about nutrition.
The unique format of scientific fact, practical clinical pearls with technical tips, and patient commentary provides the full spectrum of information needed to prescribe and/or practice a low carbohydrate, ketoadaptive lifestyle, for disease resolution or health.
