The ketogenic diet is a natural, non toxic, science based cancer diet which can be used for cancer prevention and treatment management. It works because cancer cells are dependent upon a constant supply of blood sugar (glucose) to stay alive and while normal cells can use ketones as an alternative fuel, cancer cells can’t.
Ketogenic diets lower blood glucose while increasing ketone levels, a metabolic state which effectively starves cancer cells while nourishing normal cells. This essential, well referenced book is based on cutting edge research on ketogenic dietary therapies from Dr. Dominic D’Agostino and Dr. Thomas Seyfried at Boston College, with his generous permission.

Why Create the Book?
I researched and wrote this eBook because many, many people emailed me asking for information about a ketogenic diet for cancer patients, and there is currently no comprehensive guide on implementing a ketogenic diet to treat cancer in the mainstream literature.
While the implementation of a ketogenic diet for cancer patients should be monitored by a qualified and knowledgable health professional, the number of health professionals available with knowledge on how to implement the ketogenic diet for cancer patients is limited. I feel that so many people need help with basic questions on the process, and the book is helping to fill that knowledge gap. The people who have already purchased have written me many wonderful emails full of positive feedback, and I'm grateful I was able to help them during such a rough period in their lives.
In addition, my own research has convinced me that this dietary protocol will be instrumental in changing the way cancer is prevented and treated. It is my hope that every hospital in the world will eventually have dedicated teams to helping cancer patients implement the diet, just as they do for children with epilepsy.
Some History on Metabolic Dietary Therapy for Cancer Treatment
In 1924, Dr. Otto Warburg, a Nobel Prize winning biochemist, proposed the hypothesis that cancer is a metabolic disease. Dr. Warburg showed in his studies that cancer cells exhibit a preference for using sugar to fuel themselves, even when oxygen needed for normal cellular energy processes is available. He wrote:
“Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar.”
~Otto H. Warburg
Until recently, Dr. Warburg’s hypothesis has been marginalized by the persistent belief in the oncology world that cancer is a genetic disease. However, in a new book Cancer as a Metabolic Disease: On the Origin, Management, and Prevention of Cancer, Dr. Thomas Seyfried has placed Dr. Warburg’s efforts to solve the cancer puzzle back in the medical limelight.
The ketogenic cancer diet for cancer is a very low carb, moderate protein, high fat diet which targets cancer cell glucose metabolism. This cancer diet is designed to target cancer cell vulnerabilities by reducing the sugary fuel and other metabolic factors which promote cancer growth, while at the same time protecting normal cells from the toxic effects of traditional therapies.
In the Fight Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet eBook, we explore the details of this dietary solution and discuss why it works and how to implement it. Get the facts on the how and why metabolic diet therapy is the most promising cancer treatment available to cancer patients. The diet has been shown in formal research studies to be especially successful in treating cancers which are highly visible on a FDG-PET scan.
In addition, Dr. Georgia Ede has an excellent article here on treating cancer with diet.
Dominic D'Agostino, Ph.D , a research scientist who specializes in cancer and mitochondrial disease research, has a blog here on which he discusses the research for using a ketogenic diet as a cancer diet. He recently spoke at TEDxTampa and did an interview with Dr. Joe Mercola on this subject. The Single Cause Single Cure organization has been formed to provide funding for metabolic therapy research.
You can also listen to a podcast interview I did with Erin Chamerlik of Get Better Wellness about the Fight Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet eBook. We talk about how I came to write the book, what's in it, the state of American health, how the diet for cancer patients works, and more.
“Sugar addiction is the Achilles heel of cancer cells.”

My friend and colleague Patricia Daly has created two recipe and meal plan eBooks specifically geared toward the ketogenic diet for cancer patients. Both books offer 14 days of meal plans and recipes. You can find them on her site, just click the link above, it will open a separate window.
