Fat or carbs, plant-based or meat? It’s no wonder everyone’s confused. Enter The Hybrid Diet because variation is the key to weight loss and improved health. There’s no need to choose – you can have the best of all worlds, enjoying fatty foods (whether you’re carnivorous or not) and healthy carbs.

My new book, co-authored with Jerome Burne, explains these two effective ways to regain health and lose weight: a high fat, 'ketogenic' diet and a slow carb, 'low GL' diet. Switching between the two is the best of all. Variation not moderation, is the key to health.

The Hybrid Diet mimics the body’s evolutionary design. We are ‘hybrid’ and can run on glucose from carbs and ketones from our body fat. Alternating between the two is the hottest health secret – because something magical happens when we switch between a ‘slow’ carb and a high fat diet: it set sup a healthy cycle of new cell growth and repair, and body fat is burnt more efficiently, mimicking the natural cycle of feast and famine.

The worst of both worlds is the combination of animal fat and refined carbs – the hallmark of junk food.

A High Fat diet switches on a cellular clean up, repairing the energy factories in cells. A Slow Carb diet makes clean energy and healthy new cells. Switching regularly between Slow Carbs and High Fat is like nutritional yoga. You become ‘carb adapted’ – craving less sweet foods, and ‘fat adapted’ – able to burn and derive energy efficiently from fat.

Variation not moderation is the key to health and slowing down ageing. This is the Hybrid Diet because your body thrives on two fuels: ketones generated from fat or glucose from carbs. Alternating between the two is the hottest health secret.
