Although evidence supporting the benefits of ketogenic diet therapies continues to mount, there is little to guide those who wish to adopt this diet as a metabolic therapy for cancer. Keto for Cancer fills this need. Inspired by the work of Dr. Thomas N. Seyfried, PhD, nutritionist Miriam Kalamian has written the first book to lay out comprehensive guidelines that specifically address the many challenges associated with cancer, and particularly the deep nutritional overhaul involved with the ketogenic diet.

Kalamian, a leading voice in the keto movement, is driven by passion from her own experience in using the ketogenic diet for her young son. Her book addresses the nuts and bolts of adopting the diet, from deciding whether keto is the right choice to developing a personal plan for smoothly navigating the keto lifestyle. It is invaluable for both beginners and seasoned users of the ketogenic diet, as well as for health-care professionals who need a toolkit to implement this targeted metabolic therapy.

The book guides readers to a deeper understanding of the therapeutic potential of the ketogenic diet--which extends well beyond simply starving cancer--emphasizing the powerful impact the diet has on the metabolism of cancer cells. Nutritional nuances are explored in sections such as "Fasting Protocols" and "Know What's in the Foods You Eat" while meal templates and tracking tools are provided in "Preparing Keto Meals."

Kalamian also discusses important issues such as self-advocacy. Readers of Keto for Cancer are empowered to "get off the bench and get in the game." To that end, Kalamian offers tips on how to critically examine cancer-care options then incorporate what resonates into a truly personalized treatment plan.

This is an astonishing book.  Unlike most memoires in American letters, Pete Fromm has given us a book of big, one might say existential questions.  A searching book providing few answers, but asked by someone who has experienced life--and death-- on the edges.  This is a book of fathers and sons, legacies and letting go, time and mortality. The prose is spare.  Not quite prose poetry but it holds more weight than most contemporary writing.   An absolute joy to read, Pete Fromm will make you laugh, then just as quickly break your heart.  The book moves seamlessly across time and space; youthful hubris, to a man in early middle age  in awe of the power of love and the realization at how quickly the things that matter to us can be wrenched away.  Chances and fate; choices and the realization that it is over all to soon.  Just like this book--over all too soon.
