How many of you know what a ketone is? You’ve heard of ketosis, but are you aware of the benefits it can have on your health? On this episode of Bulletproof Radio research scientist Dominic D’Agostino, Ph.D. comes on the show to discuss what it’s like living in ketosis 95% of the time and what he’s discovering through his work developing therapies for diseases like cancer and Alzheiemer’s with ketogenic principles. Also learn how ketones feed your brain, if a ketogenic diet is for everyone, and why MCT oil is so badass!

Dominic D’Agostino, Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor at the College Of Medicine Molecular Pharmacology & Physiology at the University of South Florida. He works to develop and test nutritional and metabolic therapies including ketogenic diets and ketogenic agents for CNS oxygen toxicity (seizures), epilepsy, metabolic disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, ALS, muscle wasting and cancer.

Low carbohydrate diets are commonly practiced but seldom taught.  As a result, whether by design or neglect, mainstream medicine has either ignored or relegated this powerful tool to casual use.

Now, two prominent medical educators draw upon their 6 decades of clinical and research experience to bring you the definitive guide to low carbohydrate living.

As co-authors of the New York Times best-selling book ‘The New Atkins for a New You’, Drs. Volek and Phinney have continued their collaboration to provide an unabridged and in-depth perspective on this controversial and often misunderstood topic. Whether you are a healthcare professional seeking the best care for your patients or an inquisitive health-minded person, the research about the benefits of a low carb lifestyle will forever change your views about healthy food and dieting.

Learn Why:

  • Carbohydrate restriction is the proverbial ‘silver bullet’ for managing insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and type-2 diabetes.

  • A well-formulated low carbohydrate diet improves blood glucose and lipids while reducing inflammation, all without drugs.

  • Carbohydrate restriction induces the process of keto-adaptation, refining the body’s metabolism to allow the mobilization and clearance of excess body fat.

  • Dietary saturated fat is not a demon when you are keto-adapted.

  • Dietary sugars and starches are not necessary to feed your brain or fuel exercise.

  • Long-term success involves much more than simply cutting out dietary carbs.

  • There is an ‘art’ to electrolyte and mineral management that is key to avoiding side effects and ensuring success.

  • Trading up from sugars and starches to a cornucopia of nutrient-rich, satisfying, and healthy natural foods is empowering.
