I’ve been practicing and prescribing low-carb, mildly ketogenic diets along with intermittent fasting since 2008. It significantly improves most patients' health, helps reverse prediabetes and diabetes, helps with sustainable weight loss and other chronic issues such as hypertension, fatigue, hypothyroidism, fatty liver disease and metabolic syndrome. Fasting protocols have also been an effective way to complement chemotherapy and immunotherapy and management of weight loss plateaus.
