Meditteranean, Keto, Alkaline, Paleo are few of the most common diets we follow to lose weight. Human beings have evolved on diets that were low on the two most common villains in our diet, salt, sugar, and trans fats. These have made us vulnerable to diseases like diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and dementia. The Hybrid Diet by Patrick Holford & Jerome Burne, explains a practical and doable way to achieve a healthy weight and reduce the risk of these health hazards.
The book focusses on two main fuels the body thrives on, glucose and ketones. Through researches, it has been proved that a diet that is very low in carbs and high in good fats is effective for weight loss, can counteract many diseases and also help athletic performance and endurance. But human love for carbs makes it difficult to stick onto many of the common diet schedules. Our body is designed to burn two different sources of fuel – glucose, and ketones (which are made in the body from fat) – and to switch between them when food is scarce. The Hybrid Diet gives clever guidance on how to make the best use of both options when you need them, and how best to switch between them. In their quest to discover the perfect diet, leading health journalist Jerome Burne and nutrition expert Patrick Holford have examined the latest cutting-edge science and have put together a plan that is sound, simple and delicious the one that is based on how your body works best.
