            The Case for Keto: The Truth About Low-Carb, High-Fat Eating

            The Case for Keto: The Truth About Low-Carb, High-Fat Eating (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

            While the government and nutritional agencies still spout the failed mantra of calorie reduction, doctors treating diabetes and obesity are experiencing extraordinary results among patients cutting out carbs; a diet which has the essential benefit of allowing you to lose weight w...ithout leaving you feeling hungry, one of the biggest reasons diets fail. With forensic journalistic rigour and in compelling prose, Taubes analyses the bad science behind our nutritional dogma that has brought us to a diabetic and obesity crisis. He shows that weight gain is driven by genetic, hormonal factors - and not 'gluttony' as is so commonly the underlying suggestion - citing compelling evidence that people with the propensity to fatten more easily than the lean among us can be helped by a low carbohydrate diet, diets discredited in the 70s and 80s as 'fads'. This groundbreaking read offers hope to anyone wishing to prevent or reserve diabetes or obesity - as well as anyone wanting to eat more healthily - and will fundamentally change our habits around food forever.

            The answer to all questions about ageing and nutrition. When science journalist Bas Kast collapsed with chest pains when he was only 40, he was faced with an existential question- had he ruined his health with junk food? He decided to radically change his eating habits in order t...o heal himself. But what is really good for you? This was the beginning of a journey of discovery into the latest research into ageing and nutrition - and it lasted several years. What do people with a particularly long life span eat? How can you lose weight efficiently? Are afflictions typical of old age avoidable? Can you 'eat yourself young' with certain foods? Much of what we think is healthy can even be harmful. Bas Kast has filtered out from thousands of sometimes contradictory studies scientifically founded findings about what really makes for healthy eating.
