Comparing common diets: Ketogenic, Paleo, Mediterranean Diets

Today my focus is to understand the difference between the common diets.
Please see the Ketogenic vs. Paleo diagram. You will see that the Paleo and the Ketogenic diets are below the 30 grams of carbohydrate level.Health - Ketogenic vs. Paleo per Dr. Jeff Volek
Dr. Tennant* recommends the Mediterranean Diet without the grains and the dairy. Please see the Mediterranean Diet brochure. You may notice that he removes grains from the diet. In my opinion, this could also bring the carbohydrate levels to below 30 grams as well.

Dr. Tennant has been acknowledged by his peers by awarding him the following:

    AMA:  American Medical Association Physician’s Recognition Award

    Philip Corboy Award for contributions to ophthalmology

    Hawaiian Eye Society Award for Excellence

    Pope Benedict:  Order of Saint Sylvester Award for Contributions to Medicine

    Microcurrent Society:  Lifetime Achievement Award

    Top 20 Alternative Doctors in America

    Newsmax Health’s Top 100 Physicians Who Embrace Integrative Medicine

    The Academy of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine:  Lifetime Achievement Award

    World Academy of Neural Therapy According To Huneke:  Scientific Excellence Award

    And others

For me, Mediterranean Diet is like the Ketogenic Diet without the ratio of proteins, fat and carbohydrates to consume daily. Please see the Keto Pyramid.
It seems to me that consuming high fiber vegetables is an excellent way to replace grains.
My intention here is for you to have the opportunity to present this information to your doctor if you so wish.
I hope this has been helpful as you go on your journey to improved health.

Ketogenic Diet App

Yesterday my focus was on how I figured out how I do the Ketogenic Diet.

Today I am sharing an App that helps track your food intake.

The KetoDiet App easy to use and gives you charts of you the grams of fat, carbs and protein you take in.

There are other Apps available, I like this one because of its easy to read reports. It is perfect for a tablet, either Android or iPad. It is available for under $10US.

Canola oil has been proven to cause lung cancer and heart disease.

Canola oil comes from genetically engineered rapeseed. Rapeseed is easy to produce because it is so toxic not even insects want it. It was originally used as a lubricant for machinery in small industries. It has been proven to cause lung cancer and heart disease. It was originally used in Europe in farm animal feeds. These animals went blind, began exhibiting various diseases, and finally went mad and began attacking people.
Here is the link to the Natural News Post:
So what do you do about it?
Natural News:  Switching from a diet high in these polyunsaturated and refined vegetable oils (partially hydrogenated oils are Trans Fats) to one with raw or at least minimally processed medium chain fatty acids (MCT) can thus reduce our risk of cancer, heart disease, and various other diseases associated with these dangerous refined oil products.
What is the big deal about Trans Fat? 
Health Canada is banning Trans Fats.  From the CBC News Article: “Canadian researchers estimate a ban (onTrans fats) could prevent 12,000 heart attacks in Canada over 20 years.” Source:
Where do I find these medium chain fatty acids (MCT)?  
Rich sources for commercial extraction of beneficial MCTs include palm kernel oil and coconut oil. 
I use coconut oil for heating up foods or for baking. 
Please look for 100% pure coconut oil that is cold-pressed to ensure the highest integrity and quality. It will become a liquid if it is over 72 degrees. Some suppliers mix it with vegetable oil to reduce the cost.  Their label may or may not say, “partially hydrogenated”, which is Trans Fat.
Look for a product like Silkeny.

50% percent of men and 41% of women are expected to develop cancer during their lifetimes. Groundbreaking research reveals cancer is primarily a metabolic disease that need not be a death sentence.

You can do something about cancer whether you have it now or are afraid you may develop it.

Genetic mutations are not the primary cause of cancer but are, rather, a downstream effect of the defective energy metabolism. As long as your mitochondria remain healthy and functional, your chances of developing cancer are slim!

In this link Dr. Mercola interviews Dr. Seyfried.  Seyfried is one of the pioneers in the application of nutritional ketosis for cancer, a therapy that stems from the work of Dr. Otto Warburg, one of the most brilliant biochemists of the 20th century.

In this article you will learn how you can avoid cancer and if you have it, really fight cancer.
