I've been reading more keto, high fat, and other nutrition books recently. These are the best ones that I'd recommend.

Fat for Fuel - Dr Joseph Mercola

The Rosedale Diet - Dr Ron Rosedale (Leptin resistance)

The Clever guts diet - Dr Michael Mosley (re-setting your microbiome)

Diabetes Epidemic and you - Dr. Joseph Kraft (re released from the mid 20th century)

The Complete Guide to fasting - Dr. Jason Fung & Jimmy More

The Obesity Code - Dr. Jason Fung

The Secret Life of Fat - Sylvia Tara - a book telling us just how much we need fat.

The Banting Pocket Guide - Prof Tim Noakes, Bernadine Douglas, Bridgette Allan

Not on the Label - what really goes into the food on your plate - Felicity Lawrence

Salt Sugar Fat - Michael Moss

The 8 week blood sugar diet - Dr Michael Mosley

These are a few of the nutrition books - and books about the food we eat - over the last few months. I've read many, many more - too many to name here.

The thing it has taught me is to keep away from processed food. If it has to have an ingredient list then it's not the way Nature intended. Oranges grow on trees - Orange juice doesn't - it's processed oranges. Grains grow in fields - breakfast cereal, white rice, bread of any colour, flour pasta - they are all processed. Tony used to live on 'good' ready meals - vegetarian ones - Shirley had the best ready meals too. Not any more. I make them from scratch and freeze them. No additives.

The thing I've found is that I've been not getting enough salt. I've added sea salt or iodised salt and my cramp is so much better. When I fast - which I often do for 3-5 days I add a teaspoon of salt to water and drink it once a day and I have raw apple cider vinegar - a couple of tablespoons twice a day - all helping me to lose weight. When I first started fasting I thought I'd kicked the chronic fatigue into touch, but it came back - not as bad, I am more alert, but it's still there. Who'd have thought that not eating is good for gaining energy - stands to reason when you think about it.
