Product Description and Author Information

About the Book

The New York Times bestselling author of the Plant Paradox series introduces the NEW SCIENCE OF KETO and shows how you can eat a much wider variety of foods to get more benefits with less misery!

The “Keto” movement has legions of fans, and research has shown that the benefits of a ketogenic diet are irrefutable. In fact, Dr. Gundry—creator of the million-copy bestselling Plant Paradox series—has long been a supporter of a modified ketogenic diet for this very reason: his patients enjoyed amazing results, though they often struggled with the program’s rigid restrictions over the long term.

Diving into the most recent studies on the topic, Dr. Gundry uncovered a shocking truth: the effects of the keto diet are not simply a result of the body being in a state of ketosis, in which it burns fat for fuel. The magic of keto, he discovered, is that ketones unlock a mechanism in our mitochondria that helps them burn fuel more efficiently. And these ketones are present in an array of food, not just fats.

Now, in Unlocking the Keto Code, Dr. Gundry advances the most radical idea in the diet space since The Plant Paradox, offering readers a new, sustainable way to “do keto” with less restriction and more options. When we eat foods that produce ketones in the body—as well as foods that promote gut health—we unlock the true power of our mitochondria and are able to lose weight effortlessly while lowering our risk of disease.

With a comprehensive new eating plan, food lists, and recipes, Unlocking the Keto Code offers the key to sustainable health.
