You are what you eat–or is it more that you are when you eat?
Natural-health expert Dr. Joseph Mercola and top Australian chef Pete Evans share a firm belief that food can be medicine–that what we eat offers us powerful tools to reshape our health. In their second co-authored cookbook, they explore the science behind intermittent fasting and the practice of timing ketogenic meals for maximum health benefits–a unique combination of principles they call KetoFasting.
Drawing on Dr. Mercola’s expertise and visionary work in natural medicine, and Pete Evans’s experience as an award-winning restaurateur, cookbook author, and TV chef, this book offers:
• Insight into the history and cultural relevance of fasting
• Guidance for a healthy ketogenic lifestyle
• Strategies to boost your body’s detox processes–including a detailed guide to using sauna therapy for detoxing
• Healthy supplements to support KetoFasting
• Delicious recipes for soups, broths, snacks, and more –all illustrated with mouthwatering full-color photographs shot in Pete Evans’s own studio
• And much more
Read on to learn how KetoFasting can help you lose weight, treat disease, and feel better than ever before.

KetoFast provides a strategy that will help you regain your healthy weight, with the absolutely liberating experience of finally being free of cravings that sabotage your ability to choose healthy foods. The weight that you lose on this program will be mostly visceral fat (the dangerous fat around your organs that is believed to be a driver of metabolic dysfunction, insulin resistance, and chronic inflammation) and losing this fat will help lower your blood pressure, improve your cholesterol patterns to healthy ratios, and lower your risk of heart disease and diabetes.
An accompanying recipe book, the KetoFast Cookbook, was written with the world-class Australian chef Pete Evans. The recipes are based on my specifications for your 300- to 600-calorie partial fast day. The foods in the recipes are loaded with phytochemicals that will support your detoxification during the KetoFast, and should serve to eliminate virtually all the side effects that people experience with fasting.

This will be an exciting journey for you, and I encourage you to solicit all the support you can from friends and family members. Invite them to join you on your journey so they too can reap all these magnificent improvements in health and avoid the pitfalls of relying on prescription drugs that never address the root cause of disease.
