Keto Adapted with Craig Emmerich

This week, Michal interviews Craig Emmerich, who along with his wife Maria, have written write one of the most comprehensive books about the ketogenic diet — Keto: The Complete Guide to Success on the Ketogenic Diet. As a guide to getting into ketosis for health, the book discusses the science behind how keto works and clarifies a lot of misinformation surrounding the ketogenic diet.

Together, Craig and Maria have also created online courses for other people looking to improve their own health through a ketogenic diet.

In this episode we talk about…

  • How Craig first found his way to the ketogenic diet

  • The problem with the “calories in vs calorie out” approach to weight loss

  • The thermic effect of food

  • What is a protein-modified fast as compared to a water fast

  • How to program your body to burn stored fat more than dietary fat

  • The role of gluconeogenesis on keto (and why you shouldn’t be afraid of it)

  • What oxidative priority is and why it matters

  • How your body processes different fuels

  • How to eat intuitively

  • How Craig and Maria raise their kids on a ketogenic diet

  • Craig’s fight with Lyme disease and the impact of a ketogenic diet on his symptoms
