Out Now! The Ketogenic & Hypotoxic Diet

Lose weight and improve health with this low-carb, high-fat, anti-inflammatory plan

Combining the fat-burning results of ketosis with the anti-inflammatory benefits of a hypotoxic diet, this healthy-eating plan stimulates weight loss, boosts energy and supports the immune system. According to the latest scientific research, it can help combat many common conditions, including migraines, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, dementia and more.

This essential guide explains how the diet works and helps you get started, featuring key foods and their benefits, creative recipes, ideas for meal plans and tailored programmes according to dietary requirements and specific goals.



  • Discover the health benefits of key ingredients and how to incorporate them in your diet
  • Includes customized ketogenic plans for vegetarians and vegans
  • Join the ketogenic diet revolution and start transforming your life today!


So what does Hypotoxic mean?

It’s often assumed that the ketogenic diet involves a high consumption of fatty meat and full-fat dairy products, such as butter, cheese and cream. In fact, to be beneficial for our health, a ketogenic diet has to be hypotoxic.

Fatty meat and full-fat dairy are major sources of toxins and are pro-inflammatory, with fats high in arachidonic acid, trans fats (as in pro-oxidant grilled meat), casein (in cheese, for example, which has a detrimental effect on the intestinal lining), leucine and antibiotics. So it’s impossible for these foods to be beneficial for our health.

It’s important therefore to adopt a ketogenic diet that is fundamentally hypotoxic. This aspect of the diet is vital for our health. Say yes to fats – but not to just any kind!

The three main principles of the ketogenic and hypotoxic diet are as follows:

Proteins, carefully chosen
and moderately consumed

All toxins, such as pollutants, heavy metals, antibiotic residues and pesticides, accumulate in animal fats. This is why it’s vital to choose good-quality meat from animals raised organically and fed on grass – not on grains high in pro-inflammatory omega-6s). You can even opt for a vegetarian or vegan diet when following the principles of a hypotoxic ketogenic

Furthermore, animal meats are acidifying, even when the quality is good. They contribute to the acidifying of the body when consumed in excess and without a large helping of green vegetables. They are also a source of pro-inflammatory components, including arachidonic acid, leucine and pro-oxidant iron. Moreover, when cooked to high temperatures (on a grill or barbecue, for instance), animal meats produce carcinogenic substances, as well as ‘glycation end products’, which accelerate ageing and tissue oxidation. For all these reasons, meat should be consumed in moderation. It may even be cut out completely, if you prepare meals instead that are properly balanced in plant proteins – a simple thing to do.

Also, since animal fats accumulate heavy metals, it’s important to opt for small oily fish, such as anchovies or sardines, over large ones, such as tuna and salmon, which, because they have eaten the small ones, are even more concentrated in heavy metals. The heavy metal mercury, for example, is  a powerful neurotoxin found in varying quantities in most fish.

No Dairy Products or Gluten

Cheese, butter, cream and even yogurt contain lactose and galactose, which, when consumed in excess, accumulate in body tissues, in particular in the lens (causing opacification of the lens and risk of cataract) and the nerve sheath (carrying a risk of neuropathy). Another major toxin found in dairy products, even more detrimental to our health, is casein, which disrupts the central nervous system by producing opioid substances and makes the intestinal lining more porous. The consequences of this include concentration problems, mood swings, chronic fatigue, irritable bowels, food intolerance, skin problems, ear, nose and throat problems,  and migraines – not forgetting a weakening and disruption of the immune defences.

Not only that, but dairy products are also pro-inflammatory. They contain hormones and growth promoters, suspected of causing certain cancers and autoimmune diseases (in particular, but not limited to, type 1 diabetes and Hashimoto’s thyroiditis), and inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases.

The ketogenic diet is naturally low in gluten as it excludes grains, pseudo-grains and processed foods (which often contain gluten in the form of additives). Gluten, like casein, acts on the brain receptors with effects similar to opiate drugs, leading to mood swings and an addiction to products containing it. Gluten also belongs to the large group of ‘prolamins’, which constantly attack our intestinal lining. We now understand the importance of keeping this lining healthy due to its crucial role in the development of many diseases.

A mostly organic diet

As stated already, when it comes to meat, it’s best
to choose organic. But this isn’t enough. For obvious health reasons, it’s always preferable to choose plant foods grown in living soil, rich in microorganisms and without added chemicals. In the medium and long terms, and depending on the state of our internal detoxification system, putting chemical and toxic substances into our bodies could have serious consequences on our health and fertility, and impact future generations.

On top of this, organic vegetables are nutritionally much richer in vitamins and minerals and, above all, contain many phytonutrients and powerful anticarcinogens. It’s time to make the right choices for your health and our planet!

The Ketogenic and Hypotoxic Diet:

Lose weight and improve health with this low-carb, high-fat, anti-inflammatory plan

Low in carbohydrates and rich in good fats, the ketogenic diet offers the perfect solution to healthy eating for optimum well-being. But in order to be truly beneficial to our health, it should also be hypotoxic (gluten- and dairy-free, with only moderate amounts of organic animal protein). 
According to the latest scientific research, a hypotoxic ketogenic diet plan can help combat many of the diseases and conditions so prevalent today, including diabetes, heart disease, cancer, dementia, and more. It’s also an effective method for combating obesity and improving athletic performance – making it a win-win approach all round!
