Chapter 1: Introduction


For you lazy souls that don’t want to read my book, I’ll tell you what has worked for me.  I can’t say it will work for everyone because there are loads of differences between people and their degree of metabolic disease.  Genetics plays a role.  Age plays a role.  Gender plays a role. Personal tastes and motivations play a considerable role.  Maybe the alignment of the planets plays a role.

I had great results using a two-stage process. The first is alternate-day fasting.  You simply don’t eat every other day.  (I don’t recommend jumping right into this!)  The other piece of the puzzle is being on a ketogenic diet the days you eat.  I am agnostic on how to accomplish this; the key is to stay under 20 grams of carbs per day.  If you want to know the why and how of doing this, read the book!


I’ve added a complete reference page to my book on this site.  I’ve also included “further reading” articles in books on this site, organized by the book chapter headings.  Book links to Amazon are affiliate links, and if you happen to buy something via one of those links, I get a small kickback from Amazon to help keep this site up and running.  Thank you for your support!

Dr. Robert Lustig is a well-respected medical doctor, YouTube sensation, and prolific author.  In the video linked below, Dr.  Lustig (UCSF Division of Pediatric Endocrinology) updates his very popular video “Sugar: The Bitter Truth.” He argues that sugar and processed foods are driving the obesity epidemic, which in turn affects our endocrine system.

If you really want to dig deep into how bad sugar is, and how evil the sugar industry is, check out the book linked below.

If you are interested in a colorful medical doctor that isn’t scared to call bullshit on his own profession, Big Food, Big Pharma, and Big Healthcare, look no further than Dr. Ken Berry.  Dr. Berry is a prolific writer and YouTube inspiration.  His no-bullshit approach to telling it like it is was a major influence in my writing of this book!    Check out his short “Lies Doctors Tell Diabetics” video below.  If you like that sort of in-your-face truth, then be sure to subscribe to his YouTube channel.  He posts new videos frequently.

If you want a deep dive into what lies doctors tell people and why check out Dr. Berry’s book below.
