Keto diets are all the rage right now, with study after study revealing their many health benefits. But with their intense focus on meat and dairy, they can also cause a range of health problems… especially if you’re someone (like me!) who likes to centre their diet around plants.
But what if there was a way to fuse the incredible benefits of keto with the power of a clean, green, plant-based diet? Today’s podcast guest, Dr Will Cole, has found the sweet spot between these two ways of eating. He calls this nutritional revolution ‘ketotarian’, and in this episode, he’s walking us through his game-changing approach to food, so we can experience the difference for ourselves…
Dr Will Cole is a leading functional-medicine expert. He specializes in finding the underlying factors that lead to chronic disease, then customising health programs for his clients to help them achieve full body health the natural way. Dr Cole was named one of the top fifty functional-medicine and integrative doctors in the nation. His book Ketotarian: The (Mostly) Plant-Based Plan to Burn Fat, Boost Your Energy, Crush Your Cravings, and Calm Inflammation has zoomed to the top of bestseller lists, and has garnered high profile fans like Terry Wahls, David Perlmutter and Gwyneth Paltrow.
