The war between Ketogenic Diets and Plant-based diets has ended. The Ketotarian Diet brings the best of both worlds and provides a healthy, plant-based, high fat diet for everyone! Dr. Will Cole, a functional medicine doctor and author of the new book Ketotarian joins me to explain why both diets have many advantages, but they have missing pieces without the other. We discuss why we all need to become fat-adapted (ketosis) and the importance of using ketones AND sugar for energy. We learn why plants are necessary for our gut microbiome and good health as well as the best proteins for vegans and vegetarians. We also debunk the article going around currently regarding “Coconut Oil as poison”. Finally, we dive deep into inflammation, why its the cause of most of the diseases today and how to lower it through eating the right foods. Enjoy episode 25 of The HealthSimple Show Podcast!
