The Pioppi Diet: A 21-Day Lifestyle Plan

For those that have seen "The Big Fat Fix" movie, this book expands on it. It's not a "diet", it's a lifestyle that can help you live longer and healthier. Well written, easy to read, easy to implement. Not sure why it hasn't gotten a wider distribution in the U.S., I had to order my copy from the U.K. Great info for people interested in following a low carb or ketogenic Mediterranean diet and lifestyle.

Low Carb Against the World
Refers to the concept that low carb diets must fight an uphill battle against myths and misconceptions.
Diet-Heart Hypothesis
The diet-heart hypothesis, also known as the lipid hypothesis, proposes that there is a direct relationship between dietary fat intake, particularly saturated fat and cholesterol, and the development of heart disease. It suggests that consuming high amounts of these fats leads to an increase in blood cholesterol levels, specifically low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, which in turn contributes to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques in the arteries. Some consider this hypothesis nothing more than wishful thinking.
Ketogenic Diet
The ketogenic diet involves eating high fat, low carbs, and moderate protein. To be in ketosis, one must eat less than 20 grams of carbohydrates per day.
