Unlocking the keto code
BY STEVEN R GRUNDY
In Unlocking the Keto Code, Dr. Gundry walks us through his recent research that reveals the biological mechanism that makes keto diets so successful: a cellular process known as “mitochondrial uncoupling.” As it turns out, ketones are not the magical fuel source they’ve been made out to be; in fact, the body cannot run on ketones and fats alone. Instead, you simply have to have enough ketones and other plant compounds called polyphenols present in your body to “unlock” the process of mitochondrial uncoupling.
In this insightful, and practical book. Dr. Gundry explains the many ways readers can achieve this process. You will even discover what makes superfoods so super… and it’s not what you think!
BY WILL COLE
This is the perfect book for those who are interested in the keto diet but are turned off by all the meat and dairy that often is associated with the diet.
“In my new book, Ketotarian, I describe my plant-based approach to the ketogenic diet,” writes Dr. Cole on his blog. “Eating according to the ketotarian diet means getting the best parts of the ketogenic diet along with the best parts of a plant-centric diet, whether you prefer to eat vegan, vegetarian, or pescatarian. Fat-burning plus nutrient density and microbiome enhancement? It’s the ultimate and optimal way to get the best benefit from a ketogenic diet.”
