In this in-depth yet accessible guide, Dr. Joseph Mercola joins forces with fasting expert Dr. Alan Goldhamer to explore the profound health benefits that result when ketogenic living and well-planned fasting are combined. Fasting is one of the most powerful metabolic interventions there is and it works perfectly in conjunction with a ketogenic diet, as both activate the body's fat-burning mode.
This book explains why the method works, drawing on the latest science as well as the author's decades of research and clinical experience. Readers will discover-
how our food is making us sick and what we can do about it
what stem cell activation is, and how fasting affects it
why the cyclical ketogenic diet with fasting is different from the conventional keto diet
how fasting can help treat diseases from diabetes to fatty liver to Alzheimer's
And much more!
