Publisher's Summary

From the author of the New York Times best-selling Plant Paradox series comes this revolutionary take on the keto diet that debunks common myths and shows listeners how to reap the rewards of keto with less restriction

Like many doctors and nutrition experts, bestselling author Dr. Steven Gundry has long endorsed the ketogenic diet - a style of eating that heavily restricts carbohydrate intake to make the body burn fat for fuel. Because ketosis offers a variety of health benefits, including weight loss, reduced risk of illness, and enhanced energy, Dr. Gundry believed his patients’ efforts to adhere to the challenging regimen was worthwhile. That is, until his research uncovered a shocking truth: We’ve gotten keto all wrong.

In Unlocking the Keto Code, Dr. Gundry reveals the biological mechanism that makes keto diets so successful: a cellular process known as “mitochondrial uncoupling.” As it turns out, ketones are not the magical fuel source they’ve been made out to be; in fact, the body cannot run on ketones and fats alone. Over the long term, a very low carb-diet can lead to muscle wasting and poor cognitive health. 

Luckily, you don’t have to restrict all carbs to reap the benefits of ketosis; you simply have to have enough ketones and other plant compounds called polyphenols present in your body to “unlock” the process of mitochondrial uncoupling. In this insightful, empowering, eminently practical book. Dr. Gundry explains the many ways listeners can ignite this process, from feasting on plant-based foods (carbs that are typically off-limits on a keto diet!) to enjoying ketone generating foods such as goat and sheep milk products, to implementing a timed eating schedule. You will even discover the real reason how superfoods, even apple cider vinegar, work their magic; and its not what they you think!

Grounded in cutting-edge science, this is the book for all the people who have tried and failed on a keto diet; for vegetarians and vegans who want to go keto; and for anyone who wants to lose weight and enjoy better health while eating a wide variety of foods. With food lists, hacks, and all-new recipes, Unlocking the Keto Code makes going keto easy and enjoyable for the first time.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Massive energy and weight control

Dr Gundry has written a lot of fine books on health, gut biome, heart health, longevity and all types of metabolic disorders. I have read all of his books and all of them have been excellent. However this book is my favorite for it lays out how to fix your lack of energy and significantly fix you weight control through the functioning of your bodies mitochondria uncoupling. He goes into detail on aging,how to stay younger, how to develop more brown and lose the white fat which increase you energy and lowers your body mass index. The young thin days are back again. How this improves your immune system and for a cancer patient this is great. He goes into great detail on recipes on healthy eating, reasonable fasting to keep you young and what vitamins,minerals,good fats to eat, polyphenols, and good oils to take. This is the third week on his full program and my energy level is through the roof and I am fighting cancer. Thank You DR Gundry!

Good for keto newbies

Good for someone new to keto or trying to find variations of keto eating. I like the emphasis on "metabolic flexibility". But overall there is nothing new in this book, despite the authors claims, that others haven't been writing about for years in the keto and paleo world.

Great Info But Diet is Too Niche

Dr. Gundry has a great reading performance, the info is great I assume but it's too niche and expensive to follow. "Only goat cheese or cow cheese from southern Europe", "only blueberries from high altitude" and things like that.

I’m blown away!

Every person in the world world benefit from the knowledge provided. I’ve been a dedicated follower for years and I even take a variety of his supplements including the olive oil. They have worked miracles on my body and now he’s doing the same thing to my mind! I’m about to binge consume everything he has written! I’m eternally grateful for this marvelous human being! My only complaint is he makes a statement about how detrimental “constant ketosis“ is for the body but doesn’t elaborate.

Excellent Science, Excellent Story

Dr. Gundry has nailed the science behind Keto. This book explains why it works and why calories and ratios are far less important than eating windows and good, healthy foods. I got so much value out of this book I finally feel like I can eat in a way that will work for me.

Dr. Gundry explains complicated topics well.

The book was very well narrated. As a non-medical layman I came away with a well based understanding of the concepts presented. I am eagerly anticipating relaxed dietary restrictions as a KETO practitioner. While KETO works for me, it is as Dr. Gundry states "BORING." Looking forward to unlocking the KETO Code.

Gave up

I gave up on this after listening to several chapters. The book is overly dense with lengthy explanations of biological and chemical processes which I feel that I didn’t need to know. The key dietary and lifestyle advice is provided in a short section, before the science begins again and I had to stop listening. The book is read in a strangely annoying style, with emphasis placed on random words which interrupts the flow. I’m sure this book is full of great information, but it takes considerable concentration to take it in, and I’m not sure the average listener will last the distance.

Fascinating Listen

OK loads to digest (!) here. Gundry’s entertaining style makes the science easy to get. Only negative is that he debunks a lot of his own prior beliefs. How long will it be that what he says here is swapped out for his next book? Nevertheless, really worth listening to if you are all about ketosis.
