What is keto?
The ketogenic diet is an anti-inflammatory way of eating that has been used since the 1920s as an effective treatment method for children suffering from epilepsy, and which has made it possible to cure many of today’s chronic diseases and health conditions such as type-2 diabetes and cognitive brain diseases including, including dementia and other inflammatory illnesses.

KETO-licious is a concrete and practical guide for improving and even revolutionizing your health, from the inside and out. In this book the ancient, ketogenic low-carb-high-fat, nutrient dense food is presented in combination with contemporary expertise, and the latest scientific findings which emphasize the healing powers of real food, and explains why insulin and blood sugar play a key role for your health and well-being.

The keto diet means going back to basics
In other words, eating the foods that us humans are genetically adapted and designed for. By eating a large amount of healthy fats, moderate amounts of animal protein and a great deal of low carb vegetables you can help your body and brain to start using ketones as primary fuel, instead of glucose – a process which has great cognitive advantages and results in calming effects on the brain, increased energy, fewer mood swings,
less anxiety and better sleep. It will also highly improve your metabolism: get ready for becoming an around-the-clock fat burner!

Not just food

My book KETO-licious is all about adopting a holistic health perspective, treating the individual as a whole and nurturing the mind, body and soul with all the aspects of the human health puzzle needed to not just live healthy but also thrive in life.

 

We can do this by living as much as possible in alignment with our ancestral blueprint. Through functional breathing patterns, and many other tools which are presented in chapter 4: The addictive brain, carnivore and the chapter of sleep, stress and harmony.
