1.0 out of 5 stars A terrible book full of faulty ideas backed by faulty science, 11 Aug. 2014
By 
This review is from: Keto Clarity (Hardcover)
A terrible book full of faulty ideas backed by faulty science. If you want to make yourself sick over the long term buy this book. If you don't, don't.

Shockingly poor and dangerous pseudoscience with a dose of carbohydrate fearmongering.

Can you elaborate please? Where is your science to support your comments?

I too would like to know what it is about Keto Clarity that you have taken against. There is very good science behind the ketogenic diet for all sorts of conditions. It is certainly the outstanding treatment for epilepsy and has been for about a century, i.e. it is more effective and better tolerated than any anti-epileptic drug. There is also very good science on the use of this dietary approach in brain injury and neurodegenerative diseases as ketones are an excellent fuel for brain neurones, even when glucose can not be taken up due to brain insulin resistance. There is a growing body of evidence for the use of this diet in treating cancers, certainly the solid tumour sort and possibly the blood cell proliferation type too, and this is in keeping with the principles discovered in the 1920s by Nobel Laureate Otto Warburg which demonstrated that malignant cells (i.e. cancerous cells) lose the metabolic flexibility to use either fats or glucose for cellular energy, and 'degrade' into more basic cell types, i.e. more like simple cellular life like yeasts and bacteria, by utilising only glucose in the glycolysis pathways. Professor Thomas Seyfried in his excellent book Cancer As A Metabolic Disease discusses this in detail and explains how cancer cells simply cannot continue to thrive, grow and derange our bodies when starved of glucose and other dietary substrates that can be turned into glucose, whilst healthy cells, including heart, brain, kidney, liver, skin, gut, etc etc can all run well on fats and ketones. Cancer patients all over the world are putting themselves onto this diet. They are not stupid and they reap the reward of curtailing the rampant cancer cells, stopping them in their tracks, whilst enabling their healthy cells to remain healthy.
On this basis, and there are a great many people just doing this for themselves, I don't see how you can say that they will be sick in the long term, when if they didn't do this they would be dead in the short term.
I doubt if the ketogenic diet is the ideal diet for every human on the planet, but once we have become metabolically diseased, as evidenced by symptoms and signs that any doctor can identify, the only way to return to health is to do something drastic, something diametrically opposite to what has been done hitherto. Most people have lived on a predominantly carbohydrate based diet since they were born going from milk of one kind or another to baby rice, then onto sweets, breakfast cereals, sandwiches, pies (pastry) wraps, puddings, cakes biscuits, bread, pasta, baked potatoes and rice, fruit, sugar and alcohol. No wonder their health is destroyed. Working to flip the cellular switches the other way, i.e. from burning glucose to burning fat, is often the only way to regain cellular health.
I think that your use of the term 'pseudoscience' is very ill judged, as the science is very very sound. What makes you say it is not?
If you have been a low fat promotor you may be feeling under fire these days as that approach has been proven to be dangerous and was certainly based on pseudo science itself, what with Ancel Keys, Professor Colin Campbell and the Douglas Graham type of gurus promoting themselves. This link takes you to an article by a brilliant young research scientist, Chris Materjohn, who critiques the claims make by Prof Campbell and shows how fraudulent they were. It is a great read and I commend it to everyone: http://www.westonaprice.org/blogs/cmasterjohn/the-curious-case-of-campbells-rats-does-protein-deficiency-prevent-cancer/. I also highly recommend the reading of Denise Minger's superb work in actually reading the data Campbell collected and seeing what it actually revealed, rather than what he said it showed. He was biased in that he wanted to find proof for his beliefs that eating animal products is detrimental to health, which means he is not a proper scientist, as true science goes with the evidence not with beliefs or wished. Here is a link to her work: http://rawfoodsos.com/2010/09/02/the-china-study-wheat-and-heart-disease-oh-my/.
So mister Martin Kineticmb, I want to know whatever it is about Jimmy Moore's book that you don't like. I suspect you are of the vegan/vegetarian/fruitarian/ type brigade. If I am wrong please tell.

I think it's you that needs to go and do some research!

This is not a review, it's simply pejorative statement based on a lack of understanding of this diet. Ketogenic diets have been around a long time and have been well documented as to the long term effects of the diet. It's also being rehabilitated by the medical community in treating epilepsy in children. It's not an easy diet and it's not for everybody but it is a diet that warrants a respectful appraisal and not the nonsense that has been written by this reviewer.

Jimmy Moore's book is a brilliant and well paced exploration into the physiology of metabolism, from a personal perspective but with full explanation and, yes, clarity.

Here here Biofeld. This Martin Whatnot is a troll and should be treated as such, i.e. ignored.

Go buy the book all ye who value your health!
