Did you know that the ADA recommends a diet which makes long term diabetic complications more likely? The diet the American Diabetes Association recommends calls for 45-60 carbs per meal. As a result of that carb load, blood sugar spikes, insulin is administered, and blood sugar crashes. We call this the blood sugar roller coaster. The logical solution is to get off the blood sugar roller coaster completely. Following a low carb, high fat ketogenic diet stops this blood sugar spike/crash cycle, helps you reduce or even eliminate medications such as metformin, greatly reduce insulin needs, and avoid long-term diabetic complications.

Diabetes is a modern disease of carbohydrate intolerance, meaning your body isn't able to process carbohydrate (sugars and starches) normally. Consuming these foods results in high blood sugar, and over time, diabetic complications. Before the invention of insulin in the 1920s, physicians advised diabetics to avoid eating carbohydrates because of this intolerance. In contrast, modern advice is to eat carbohydrates and treat the resulting high blood sugar with medications and insulin. This "eat carb and take medicine" method increases the cost of diabetic care and does nothing to resolve the underlying disease and progression. The logical solution is to follow a low-carb ketogenic diet because it treats type 2 diabetes at the root cause. Avoiding carbs while enjoying foods rich in healthy fats and protein stabilizes blood sugar and reduces and in some cases, eliminates the need for diabetic medications.

A Comprehensive Guide for Patients and Practitioners Although evidence supporting the benefits of ketogenic diet therapies continues to mount, there is little to guide those who wish to adopt this diet as a metabolic therapy for cancer. Keto for Cancer fills this need. Inspired by the work of Dr. Thomas N. Seyfried, PhD, nutritionist Miriam Kalamian has written the first book to lay out comprehensive guidelines that specifically address the many challenges associated with cancer, and particularly the deep nutritional overhaul involved with the ketogenic diet. Kalamian, a leading voice in the keto movement, is driven by passion from her own experience in using the ketogenic diet for her young son. Her book addresses the nuts and bolts of adopting the diet, from deciding whether keto is the right choice to developing a personal plan for smoothly navigating the keto lifestyle. It is invaluable for both beginners and seasoned users of the ketogenic diet, as well as for health-care professionals who need a toolkit to implement this targeted metabolic therapy. The book guides readers to a deeper understanding of the therapeutic potential of the ketogenic diet--which extends well beyond simply starving cancer--emphasizing the powerful impact the diet has on the metabolism of cancer cells. Nutritional nuances are explored in sections such as "Fasting Protocols" and "Know What's in the Foods You Eat" while meal templates and tracking tools are provided in "Preparing Keto Meals." Kalamian also discusses important issues such as self-advocacy. Readers of Keto for Cancer are empowered to "get off the bench and get in the game." To that end, Kalamian offers tips on how to critically examine cancer-care options then incorporate what resonates into a truly personalized treatment plan.

The huge and growing problem of type 2 diabetes already affects 10-20% of the population. Millions more are in the early stage of the disease (a condition called prediabetes) or are at high risk of developing it within five years. Though there is a lot of information and advice about living with diabetes, there is very little information about how to minimize the risk of health complications or, more importantly, how to get rid of it for good. That's where Beating Type 2 Diabetes comes in! This book is a single, reliable, evidence-based, high-quality resource that includes everything there is to know about beating type 2 diabetes. After reading what type 2 diabetes is, how the condition is diagnosed, how it is treated, and how the condition is monitored and managed, you will gain a better understanding of the causes of type 2 diabetes, what the risk factors are, and why it is linked so strongly to being overweight or obese. Understanding type 2 diabetes means you are now equipped to reverse the diagnosis. To help you beat type 2 diabetes, Professor Michael Gleeson provides a safe and effective weight-loss plan. This plan uses sensible, varied, non-extreme dieting combined with enjoyable and exhilarating (but not exhausting!) exercise that should kick diabetes into remission and improve overall health. The great thing about the diet part of the plan is that it does not require sticking with the same boring diet week after week. Instead, you can use a variety of different, but equally effective, diets which can be changed each week. With this book, you can reverse your diagnosis and beat type 2 diabetes for good!

A Comprehensive Metabolic & Lifestyle Approach A diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease in 2016 is startlingly similar to a half-century ago. Despite decades of research and millions of dollars invested in uncovering the causes and developing treatments for this devastating illness, progress has been slow, with each new “blockbuster” drug proving to be as big a disappointment as the ones that went before it. Today, an Alzheimer’s diagnosis is a death sentence. However, there may be ways to prevent, delay, and possibly even reverse the course of this crippling neurodegenerative disease. In The Alzheimer’s Antidote, Certified Nutrition Specialist Amy Berger presents a multi-pronged nutrition and lifestyle intervention to combat Alzheimer’s disease at its roots. Berger’s research shows that Alzheimer’s results from a fuel shortage in the brain: As neurons become unable to harness energy from glucose, they atrophy and die, leading to classic symptoms like memory loss and behavioral changes. This is a revolutionary approach—one that has been discussed in the scientific literature for years but has only recently been given credence in clinical settings, thanks to extremely promising studies wherein Alzheimer’s patients have experienced complete reversals of the condition. Medical and scientific journals are full of research showing alternate ways to fuel the starving brain, but no one has been bringing this essential information to the people who need it most—until now. In a culture obsessed with miracle medications, the pharmaceutical route for tackling Alzheimer’s has been a massive failure. Pills and potions don’t address underlying causes, and regarding Alzheimer’s, they typically fail to improve even the symptoms. As a metabolic problem, the only effective way to treat Alzheimer’s may be a multifaceted approach that fundamentally reprograms energy generation in the brain. The good news is, the secret is as simple as switching to a low-carb, high-fat diet. The Alzheimer’s Antidote shows us that cognitive decline is not inevitable, but if it does occur, we don’t have to sit idly by and wait helplessly while it progresses and worsens. Amy Berger empowers loved ones and caregivers of Alzheimer’s sufferers, and offers hope and light against this otherwise unnavigable labyrinth of darkness.
