With a family history of diabetes, heart disease, hypertension, and a variety of other metabolic syndrome problems, Dr. Adam Nally tried to keep his calorie count low and exercise five to six days a week, but it wasn’t working: he was still 65 lbs overweight, his triglyceride levels were almost four times what they should be, he was prediabetic, and he was always hungry. As a practicing family medicine physician, he was noticing the same patterns in many of his patients. “I started looking for answers for myself and for my patients, realizing that what I was taught in the traditional school just was not effective,” says Dr. Nally.
This search led him to the most recent research on obesity, which led him to eventually compile a plethora of information on the many hormones used by the body in order to control weight and the powerful influence of food on hormonal behavior. For the past 15 years, Dr. Nally has implemented everything he’s learned into his practice, removing starches and sugars from his patients’ diets and replacing them with fats and proteins. The results? He’s helped reverse over 50 cases of diabetes and continues to treat 16 diseases that respond very well to the removal of starches from the diet. The Keto Cure: A Low Carb High Fat Dietary Solution to Heal Your Body and Optimize Your Health is all about Dr. Nally’s experience over the past 15 years treating patients with this diet and “walking the walk.”
