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!
