The cancer diet that works with your body. The ketogenic diet deprives cancer cells of the sugary fuel they need to survive while providing support for and protecting healthy cells. The eBook is based on the work of Dr. Thomas Seyfried and was written with Dr. Seyfried's permission in response to the many emails I've received asking how to implement the diet. The new Second Edition of the "Fight Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet" eBook is an essential, well referenced eBook offering 134 pages of detail on:
Ten percent of the profits from the cancer diet eBook go to support the ketogenic research of Dr. Seyfried and his team at Boston College, and Dr. Dominic D'Agostino's work on ketone esters at the University of South Florida.
The Fight Cancer with a Ketogenic Diet, Second Edition eBook is in Acrobat PDF format. It will be delivered as a downloadable PDF file via a digital link in an email.

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.
This may be because the implementation of a ketogenic diet for cancer patients should be monitored by a qualified and knowledgable health professional. However, 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.
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 diet which emphasizes the targeting of cancer cell glucose metabolism. The diet is designed to target cancer cell metabolism by reducing the metabolic factors that promote cancer growth, while 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, and has been shown in studies to be successful in treating many cancers, but especially 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 the recent 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.
My friend and colleague Patricia Daly has created a recipe and meal plan eBook specifically geared toward the ketogenic diet for cancer patients. Her "Practical Keto Meal Plans for Cancer" ebook has 14 days of meal plans and recipes. Click on the book cover to purchase your copy!
These books, although geared toward those with epilepsy, have very similar diet plans.
