Adapt Program, The

Author: Westman, Eric

Description: The unfortunate reality is that most health practitioners are taught very little about basic nutrition, and even less about how to help people lose weight by using nutrition. Because many of the chronic medical problems that we face today are the result of improper nutrition, health practitioners do not know how to solve these problems—they just palliate them with medications. But with The Adapt Program, ketogenic expert and Duke University internal medicine doctor Eric Westman, MD, reveals another, better way. After treating thousands of clinical patients at the Duke Lifestyle Medicine Clinic, conducting years of clinical research, and authoring nearly one hundred peer-reviewed publications, Dr. Westman developed the Adapt Program, which enables patients to heal themselves just by changing what they eat. Participants in this nutritional program have experienced tremendous success in losing weight and turning around their health, and today Dr. Westman’s practice routinely has a waitlist of three to six months to enter the program. But you don’t have to get in line. This book puts his program and his years of expertise right in readers’ hands. The Adapt Program spells out how to consume adequate amounts of protein to fuel the necessary metabolic functions within the body and then substitute fats for carbohydrates to meet the body’s caloric requirements. It walks readers through every step of the clinical process, explaining which tests and evaluations Dr. Westman would conduct, as well as key points of the diet to be cognizant of. This approach gives readers the tools and knowledge they need to start down the path to recovery and ultimately achieve their goals. The book not only outlines a general program for people who are simply looking to lose weight, but also includes modifications to accommodate the needs of athletes and people with specific medical conditions, such as type 1 and type 2 diabetes, pre-diabetes, metabolic syndrome, obesity, and hypertension.
