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.

Have you looked at a low-carb diet simply as a means to lose weight? What if you learned that combining a low-carb nutritional approach with a high fat intake produces a powerful therapeutic effect on a wide variety of health conditions that most people think requires medication to control? That's what Keto Clarity is all about. Jimmy Moore, the world's leading low-carb diet blogger and podcaster, has reunited with his Cholesterol Clarity coauthor Dr. Eric C. Westman, a practicing internist and low-carb diet researcher, to bring you the crystal-clear information you need to understand what a ketogenic diet is all about and why it may be the missing element in your pursuit of optimal health. This book includes exclusive interviews from twenty of the world's foremost authorities from various fields bringing their depth of expertise and experience using this nutritional approach. Moore and Westman clearly explain why ketosis is normal, how this nutritional approach is being used therapeutically by many medical professionals, a step-by-step guide to help you produce more ketones and track your progress, real life success stories of people using a ketogenic diet, and more. The solid evidence for nutritional ketosis in dealing with many of the chronic health problems of our day is presented, including: epilepsy, Type 2 diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, metabolic syndrome, polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), heartburn (GERD), nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD). The good evidence for ketogenic diets is also shared in dealing with Alzheimer's Disease (AD), Parkinson's Disease, dementia, mental illness, schizophrenia, bipolar, depression, narcolepsy, and sleep disorders. Plus, you'll get the details on the emerging science that is showing great promise in treating cancer, autism, migraines, chronic pain, brain injury, stroke, kidney disease and so much more. Keto Clarity is your definitive guide to the benefits of a low-carb, high-fat diet. Full details on Jimmy Moore's yearlong n=1 scientific experiment of nutritional ketosis, in which he used sophisticated blood testing technology to track and monitor his production of ketones and blood sugar to achieve rather remarkable effects on his weight and health, is also presented as well as food shopping lists, 25+ low-carb, high-fat recipes, and a 21-day meal plan to get you going on your ketogenic lifestyle change. Keto Clarity gives you a whole new perspective on the work that the late, great Dr. Robert C. Atkins started in earnest with his promotion of the low-carb approach beginning in the 1960s. That revolution continues boldly in this book designed to shift your paradigm on diet and health forever!

Very worth while and thorough though I question whether many could follow his 21 day diet and fasting recommendations without nausea and/or hunger. I've experimented a lot with varying levels of fat and it was not appealing to me. Just the same the rest of the book was great. Also check out David Perlmutter's book on Brain Making, a whole lifestyle approach to mental and physical well being that includes a high fat, high fiber, moderate protein, low carb diet. And Tristan and his wife at Primal Edge have done a great recipe book with lots of nutrient rich foods (including pasture raised organ meat recipes).

Enjoyed this book for the clarity it did bring to my mind, concerning the ketogenic protocol.

Yes, one has to find one's sweet spot of balance between carbs, protein and fat; in order to switch from sugar burn to fat burn. Once you find it, it is so sweet.

(For some, they can't shake their grain/sugar addiction and keep relapsing.)

One of the better LCHF / Keto books. I especially liked that it emphasized that this dietary lifestyle is as much for healthy eating as it is for weight loss. In fact, excessively thin people who need to gain weight (as in lean muscle mass) will readily do so on this lifestyle.

I also especially liked that for a change it not only adopted a true LC format but made it clear that it MUST be accompanied by (ultra) high fat - and knows that GOOD FATS are your animal fats and tropical plant oils (coconut, palm, palm kernel). If one tries to make it both LC and LF, it will fail.

Also, way too many LC "Diets" fail in that they incorrectly emphasize high protein (usually along with lowered animal fats - as they just cannot lose the "animal fats are evil" myth). This book does not do that.

Unfortunately that is also the one downfall of this book. To a degree it underestimates the need for protein. Only PROTEIN can build ANYTHING in the body. Not carbs. Not fats. Carbs and fats are for energy (with fats by far the better choice).

If you are relatively sedentary, then their basic protein recommendations are just slightly low. But if you are an athlete, workout regularly, etcetera (like also to include recovering from surgery for example), much more protein should be consumed (along with ultra high levels of fat).

Still, one of the better LCHF / Keto books.
