"Keto for Cancer brings clarity to this emerging science and makes implementation of this information straightforward and uncomplicated."-David Perlmutter, New York Times bestselling author "This book addresses every question or concern that cancer patients might have in using a ketogenic metabolic strategy for managing their cancer."-Thomas Seyfried ,PhD THE comprehensive guide for patients and practitioners from a foremost authority in the emerging field of metabolic therapies for cancer. 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. Nutritionist Miriam Kalamian has written the 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 and meal templates and tracking tools are explored in sections such as: Fasting Protocols Know What's in the Foods You Eat Preparing Keto Meals Put Your Plan Into Action Kalamian also discusses important issues such as self-advocacy empowering readers by offering tips on how to critically examine cancer-care options and then incorporate what resonates into a truly personalized treatment plan.

Booklist- "Starve a cancer cell? Indeed. Kalamian, a nutritionist and educator whose 13-year-old son died of brain cancer, argues that research efforts focus too much on genetics and drugs and not enough on the environment and diet. Tumor cells seem to feed on glucose, so she argues that it makes sense to try a low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet. With his introduction, biology professor Thomas Seyfried adds credibility to what he calls a 'playbook' for patients and caregivers who would like to try incorporating 'therapeutic ketosis' into their standard-of-care oncology treatment. In her how-to guide, Kalamian covers meal planning (many fats are friends), fasting (mostly good), calorie restriction (just don't go overboard), chemo and radiation (the weight loss they often cause might drive some of the early response to treatment), side effects (an increased risk of kidney stones), and long-term benefits of the keto diet (improved blood pressure, more energy). Though she is an unapologetic advocate, Kalamian does advise readers not to force a loved one to embrace this nutritional therapy." "Keto for Cancer is an incredible guide for cancer patients and anyone attempting the ketogenic diet for the metabolic management of disease or just overall health benefits. This book addresses at least 95 percent of the questions I get on a daily basis. A must-read resource for anyone interested in ketogenic diets, cancer, exogenous ketones, and personalizing their nutritional ketosis strategy."-Dominic D'Agostino, PhD, leading scientist on ketogenic metabolic therapies "In an era when interest in ketogenic diets has erupted and misinformation abounds, Miriam Kalamian has brilliantly cut to the facts for cancer patients and their caregivers. Keto for Cancer is a clear, concise, and invaluable resource that describes both the science and implementation of these metabolic therapies. Underlying it all is the heart of a mom who has experienced the ultimate tragedy and has chosen to give additional meaning to her son, Raffi's, life."-Jim Abrahams, The Charlie Foundation for Ketogenic Therapies "Keto for Cancer reveals how a ketogenic diet powerfully targets cancer at its metabolic core. This approach to cancer therapy, and prevention, offers up a welcomed perspective in a world focused on waging war on cancer with medical weapons of mass destruction. Miriam Kalamian's exemplary achievement brings clarity to this emerging science and makes implementation of this information straightforward and uncomplicated."-David Perlmutter, FACN, author of #1 New York Times bestseller Grain Brain and The Grain Brain Whole Life Plan "Standard treatments for Miriam Kalamian's son Raffi's brain tumor failed and crippled his quality of life, so she went to graduate school to learn all she could about metabolic nutritional therapies. Keto for Cancer is comprehensive and has appropriate cautions about the limits of the approach. It's a complete how-to book for others in this terrible position and is imprinted with her love for her son."-Eugene J. Fine, MD, professor of clinical radiology, Albert Einstein College of Medicine "Cancer is the word nobody ever wants to hear, but Miriam Kalamian understands it's not an automatic death sentence either. Keto for Cancer offers hope for healing to cancer patients by offering them a personal plan for success that implements the powerful symbiosis of natural strategies such as the ketogenic diet, fasting, and supplementation. It's time to live the anticancer life!"-Jimmy Moore, health podcaster; international bestselling author of Keto Clarity "The nutrition and medical world is incredibly blessed that Miriam Kalamian has decided to generously share her in-depth knowledge, but most importantly her vast clinical experience and skills, in this book. I'm confident that it will become the go-to resource for the practical application of the ketogenic approach. Keto f

Övrig information

Miriam Kalamian is a nutrition consultant, educator, and author specializing in the implementation of ketogenic therapies. She earned her master of education (EdM) from Smith College and her master of human nutrition (MS) from Eastern Michigan University. She is board certified in nutrition (CNS) by the Board for Certification of Nutrition Specialists. Inspired by the work of Thomas N. Seyfried, PhD, Miriam draws on a decade of experience to provide comprehensive guidelines that specifically address the many diet and lifestyle challenges associated with a cancer diagnosis. Miriam is a leading voice in the keto movement. Her passion for helping others implement this diet comes directly from her personal experience. Her son Raffi was diagnosed with a brain tumor in December 2004. Standard of care therapies failed to stop the relentless progression of his disease, and it became painfully clear that she needed to switch gears quickly. That is what originally led her to Dr. Thomas Seyfried's research supporting the use of the ketogenic diet for cancer. Beyond cancer, Miriam integrates nutritional strategies with metabolic therapies and lifestyle modifications to develop personalized treatments that address a broad spectrum of conditions that are currently considered intractable, including age-related, neurodegenerative, and bariatric diseases. Miriam lives in Montana.
