A ketogenic diet makes sugar (glucose) less available to cancer cells while providing ketones as fuel for normal tissue.

  1. Limiting your intake of carbohydrates dampens spikes in blood glucose.
  2. Dampening spikes in glucose also dampens spikes in insulin. This restricts the movement of glucose across cell membranes.
  3. Lowering insulin levels lowers blood levels of tumor-promoting insulin-like growth factor I (Igf-1).
  4. The ketogenic diet facilitates a metabolic shift to ketosis.
  5. In ketosis, dietary and stored fats are converted to ketones. When glucose is in short supply, most normal cells switch to using ketones and other fats as fuel. Tumor cells are starved of energy because they are not as fuel flexible as normal cells.

Is a ketogenic plan right for you?
The responsibility for any change in diet is yours. Carefully weigh risks and benefits. If you decide that the diet is right for you, I can offer you and your family the guidance and support you'll need to translate the research into action.
