Unlocking the keto code : the revolutionary new science of keto that offers more benefits without deprivation

Gundry, Steven R.2022
Books
Like many doctors and nutrition experts, author Dr. Steven Gundry has long endorsed the ketogenic diet-a style of eating that heavily restricts carbohydrate intake to make the body burn fat for fuel. Because ketosis offers a variety of health benefits, including weight loss, reduced risk of illness, and enhanced energy, Dr. Gundry believed his patients' efforts to adhere to the challenging regimen was worthwhile. That is, until his research uncovered a shocking truth: We've gotten keto all wrong. In Unlocking the Keto Code, Dr. Gundry 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. Over the long term, a very low carb-diet can lead to muscle wasting and poor cognitive health.
