Metabolic Flexibility

How to Heal Your Metabolism With a Ketogenic Diet

Metabolic flexibility is essential for optimal metabolism. A robust metabolism is the key to recovery from metabolic disease – including diabetes, heart diesease, overweight and obesity – as well as most modern chronic illnesses.

In this how-to workbook, Dr. Bonnie Nedrow leads people through a step-by-step program to train the body to burn fat and achieve metabolic flexibility. The 12-week boot-camp outlined in this book uses a strict ketogenic diet coupled with blood-ketone monitoring to help people achieve ketosis and become fat adapted. Over the 12-week program, dietary fat and stored body fat becomes readily available fuel. While the program begins with a high-fat diet, complex carbohydrates will eventually be rotationally brought back in.
