Conclusion from the governmental sponsored main Next to my Bible the most important book I have Refer back to it several times a week If ou re trying to be healthy Often Go Awry you MUST have this book As a medical provider I was really resistant to this type of diet As a person who struggles with obesity and food addiction I decided to try this anyway It has changed my life I appreciate all of the references I did look up the studies on my own You can t argue with the science or the results The most complete cogent assessment of the medical literature regarding low carbohydrate diets I have ever read Drs Phinney and Volek are two of the world experts on the topic having done a vast majority of the research to date The book not only explains the physiology and value of low carb diets but also clearly shows the flaws in research that have led to the misconception that fat is bad forou and high carb diets are not I have known Dr Phinney personally for many Under Grand Hotel, Volume 02 years and always turn to him when I need help understanding what to do to help my patients Ifou want to know why we have an obesity epidemic in the United States and what to do about this book is a must read Reading this book may literally save our life It explains why low carb diets are good for general health not just weight loss Excellent readI ve chosen to give this book 5 solid stars because of the uality and amount of information presented Fair warning there is a lot of medical and scientific terms It s easily decipherable with a basic understanding of medical terminologyThat said I learned a lot about biological markers and feel my understanding of nutritional ketosis has improved even after countless hours of research I ve done on my ownI d recommend this book to people who are interested in the science behind low carb diets and understand the differences between nutritional ketosis and ketoacidosis This isn t a book aimed at sharing recipes if that s what ou re after I strongly suggest looking elsewher.

Doctors for doctors to tell their patients how to go very low carb so it can be biomed oriented at times as in naming many acronyms I haven t heard of but the information is invaluableI have been paleo low carb for five ears but never aimed to go into ketosis I had many uestions how is athletic performance effected What are the best fat sources for ketosis Is all that animal fat really what I should be eating How do specific organs react to running primarily on fatThis book answers all of those uestions and I ve read Wheat Belly and Why We Get Fat which were great intros into low carb eating and avoiding grains but this book is specifically about ketosis The other books do a better job of explaining why fat is actually good for ou but Art Science covers the basics Maybe two chapters in I decided to go full keto as a lifestyleThe book covers all sorts of topics and cites countless studies along the way Volek and Phinney have been performing their own patient studies for decades so they are than ualified to write about the subject They also fully admit their shortcomings and those of nutrition in general like how inflammation is very complicated and not fully understood and activated by many different thingsThere are probably other good keto resources out there but the combined experience of the authors leaves no keto stone uncovered I would make it reuired reading for anyone looking to change their lifestyle to high fat low carb This book turned my ears learning at HSPH upside down along with the cherished Food Pyramid It is well written in a semi scholarly semi self help fashion but without the usual nauseating advocacy through anecdotes The main points are made through peer reviewed published research I can t judge its scientific merits not being an expert in this field nor know how its principle would apply to my individual situation but I applaud its clear and concise education on various metabolic issues I am still digesting its diametrically different.
