Think you're eating healthy? Think again. For the past forty years, we have been slowly eating ourselves to death--and doing so based on government guidelines about what constitutes a healthy diet. This grand low-fat, high-carbohydrate dietary experiment has led to epidemic increases in obesity and other chronic conditions, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and Alzheimer's. It's time to hit the reset button. In BioDiet, Health educator and researcher Dr. David G. Harper offers a new, scientifically validated approach: a low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic plan that works with the body's natural processes to improve health and reverse decades of damage caused by our collective carbohydrate addiction. BioDiet isn't a "diet" in the usual sense: it's not a quick fix designed to help shed ten pounds before beach season. Drawing on his professional experience and the latest research in nutritional science, BioDiet is a lifestyle that will leave you healthier and happier. No hype or gimmicks: it's what the science says.
