Publisher's Summary

For over a century, we've accepted the scientific consensus that cancer results from genetic disease due to chromosomal damage in cell nuclei. But what if scientists are chasing a flawed paradigm? What if cancer isn't a disease of damaged DNA but rather of defective metabolism as a result of mitochondrial dysfunction? What if that startling truth could revolutionize our understanding of other diseases, too - and show us a radical new path to optimal health?

In this groundbreaking guide, the first of its kind, New York Times best-selling author and leading natural-health practitioner Joseph Mercola explains how nearly all disease is caused by defective metabolic processes. Then he reveals what's causing your metabolism to go haywire: damage and dysfunction in the mitochondria, thousands of which are at work in nearly every cell in your body, generating energy you need to stay alive and well. When mitochondria are damaged in large numbers, it is impossible to stay healthy.

Dr. Mercola shows that you can take control of your health simply by giving your body the proper fuel - and it's not what you've been led to believe. A ketogenic diet, very low in carbohydrates and high in healthy fats, is the way to optimize the biochemical pathways that suppress disease and support healing. And the benefits can be astonishing - not only in treating or preventing serious illness but in boosting your brainpower, increasing your energy, helping you lose weight and keep it off, and much more.

As you listen to this audiobook, you'll learn in clear, rational terms how your body works at a molecular level. You'll finally understand the type of fuel it's designed to burn in the most efficient way possible. You'll find detailed guidelines for starting a ketogenic eating plan. And you won't have to wait decades for metabolic mitochondrial therapy to make its way into the mainstream. You can build a healthier body and brain starting right now.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "This is Missing the .pdf file!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This has wonderful information but with the .pdf file missing it makes for far to much note taking.

    "Summarisers everything from podcasts and blogs"

    If you want a summary of information about the keto diet and how to implement it then this is a good book

    Nothing new is said or covered in my opinion if you follow podcasts and blogs on this topic

    But I still enjoyed it

    "Outstanding synthesis"
    If you could sum up Fat for Fuel in three words, what would they be?

    Empowering dietary insights


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, it's a fascinating listen. No doubt parts of it will be shown to be inaccurate as the volume of clinical and scientific study in this area expands over the coming decade. But my overriding impression is of a masterful synthesis of key concepts and new information available on the opportunity to improve health through nutrition. It is shocking and sobering to discover (through reading this and related titles over the past couple of years) how much the dogmatic dietary advice of the past four or five decades remains at issue at its very core. So it is with a sense of relief that you can have much of the confusion addressed by this reconceptualisation of new and old information. Thankyou to the author for the effort that has gone into making this available.

    "Good book... but where is the .pdf?"
    Any additional comments?

    I would love to have diagrams and checklists to follow. The book makes some strong arguments and I enjoyed all the references to other pieces of work from various authors, Drs and researchers.

    "Nothing new.."

    If you are already familiar with the benefits of a keto diet, this book doesn't have much to offer. Nothing new. I valued all the principles outlined in the book, and I'm a strong believer in a high-fat, low-carb lifestyle - but I had hoped this book would have new insights or science advancements to share.

    "A waste of time."

    Very thin on science and very heavy on anecdotes and "you should trust me" argument. The whole approach so complicated, you need to quit your job to do it. He mentioned 2 books by Jason Fung in this title, i've finished them both and suggest you to read them instead of this mess.

    "Sometimes there are books that can change your life."

    This book can change your life style. It is not about a diet but about changing your eating style.
    I started this life style four weeks ago after doing fasting diets. A lot of people are warning me to go on with this life style, but I feel good. Don't have the need for sugar and cookies anymore. It works.
    I thing about the book, it is a lot of information and a lot about stuff I have never heart of. Also about the food supplements. And as a (not native English) listener I do not even know how to spell it. So to search for it on the internet, made it difficult sometimes. This is the reason why I did not give it a full five star ranking.

    "Insightful, useful, and quite complex in parts"

    As above really. I learned quite a bit from Dr. Mercola via this book! I'd need to listen to it again to get some more of what I couldn't take in first time around.

    "Science heavy"

    I found the book OK. I've read better books. Too science heavy for me. Average and better books out there I think on the subject of LCHF
