''Now, here's where things might get confusing, because research3 has also shown that ketone body utilization drives tumor growth and metastasis. (Ketones are acids made by your body when it burns fat rather than carbohydrates as its primary fuel.) This finding appears to be completely contradictory to so many other studies that show a ketogenic diet effectively "starves" cancer. But there is an answer to this apparent contradiction, which Rosedale explains in his lecture. DressAfford crop top items to wear of the wedding
"It isn't ketogenesis, really, that we're after," he says. "It's fat burning. They're not the same. You can have a ketogenic diet by eating protein. It isn't the ketones, necessarily, that give you the benefit, it's the fact that you're burning fat, and the ketones are a byproduct. So you have to specify if you're going to [promote a] ketogenic diet that it's a high fat ketogenic diet.
It's really the burning of fat that's of benefit. As a result, you'll get ketones that your brain needs. They do good things too ... So a ketogenic diet is a good diet, but not because it's ketogenic. It's [good] because it's an indication that you're burning fat."
The Ideal Diet? Think Low-Carb, Moderate-Protein, High-Fat
I believe it's absolutely crucial, no matter what type of cancer you're trying to address, to incorporate a high-fat ketogenic diet, meaning a diet high in healthy fats like avocado, coconut oil, butter, olive oil and macadamia nuts, low in net carbs (total carbs minus fiber), and moderate amounts of high quality protein, ideally no more than about 1 gram per kilo of lean body mass.''
Such a diet, along with Peak Fasting can be easily integrated into whatever cancer treatment plan you decide to follow. More importantly, this kind of diet may be key for preventing cancer and other chronic diseases in the first place. It also appears to be key for longevity, and will help optimize your weight as well, since eating this way will help you convert from burning sugar to burning fat as your primary fuel.
