One cornerstone of the pervasive ketogenic diet is the idea that ketones are a powerful alternative fuel source for the human body. But it turns out, ketones aren’t necessarily the mechanism that makes a keto diet effective. In his newest book, Dr. Steven Gundry explains the science behind how we’ve largely misunderstood the keto diet.
New science shows that our mitochondria have a protective mechanism called mitochondrial uncoupling. To better understand how mitochondrial uncoupling works, today I’m bringing Dr. Gundry back on The Model Health Show to share the cutting-edge science from his new book, Unlocking the Keto Code. Dr. Gundry is a cardiologist, a heart surgeon, and a best-selling author. His focus is to help folks achieve true health and longevity through sustainable diet changes.
On this episode, Dr. Gundry is sharing key insights on mitochondrial function, and its link to other mechanisms like metabolism and microbiome. You’ll learn food sources you can incorporate to boost the power of your mitochondria, the power of fasting, plus a whole lot more. I think you’ll find this conversation both fascinating and enlightening. Enjoy!
