Mark Hyman. Nada Youssef : Welcome, and Dr. He’s also the 11th time, number one New York Times bestselling author, and an internationally recognized leader, speaker, educator and advocate in his field. And today we will cover a whole hour talking about the ketogenic diet. For those who don’t know, it is a strict nutrition plan that is high in fat, moderate and low protein, and very low in carbs. So before we begin, please remember, this is for informational purposes only, and is not intended to replace your own physician’s advice. So thank you so much for coming back. Nada Youssef : So let’s talk about the ketogenic diet, what is it and how did it start? So when nothing else works they put children, or adults, on a very high fat diet so the body burns fat instead of carbohydrates.
