By Susan Downs, MD
Based on the mounting evidence supporting the benefits of ketogenic diet therapies, Dr. Kalamian gives information and guidance on how the ketogenic diet fits into the new paradigm of metabolic therapies for cancer. She is driven by her passion from her own positive experience in using the ketogenic diet for her young son (who had cancer), Beyond starving cancer cells, she describes the impact that the diet has on the metabolism of cancer cells. More importantly, she discusses the nuts and bolts of adopting the ketogenic diet and how to incorporate it into one’s lifestyle. The benefits of other diets and forms of fasting are discussed.
