Product description


'The concept of combining the low GL and ketogenic diets would result in the best of both worlds. It's well-researched and clearly written - taught me a thing or two. Understanding how the body is changed by food encourages people to take responsibility for their own health - the NHS should be delighted.'

Kieran Clarke, Professor of Physiological Biochemistry, University of Oxford

So many books have been written about the best diet. So many of them written by people who seem to have not the slightest idea about human physiology and biochemistry. Here, Patrick Holford and Jerome Burne have brought together the best, most up-to-date knowledge in the area. This book is detailed and thorough. If you follow the advice here, you will improve your health, lose weight, avoid diabetes and reduce your risk of cancer and Alzheimer's. What more could you ask?

Dr Malcolm Kendrick, GP and author of The Great Cholesterol Con

The Hybrid Diet is a very intriguing and interesting idea. Once we have cut out the table sugar and refined carbs, which create such metabolic havoc, we have a choice; to use fat or low GI 'slow' carbs for fuel. This enables individuals to experiment and create the best diet for their own good health.

Dr David Unwin, winner of Innovator of the Year award from the Royal College of GPs

This is a book that is certainly original and very likely to be provocative. It's refreshing to explore what might work from more than one viewpoint. In a world where there seems to be no middle ground, this book dares to go there. Maybe we don't have to choose between fats or carbs. Maybe we can embrace real food in ways that accommodate both. Maybe the body works better when fuelling itself on either.
Maybe there's something in the concept of a 'hybrid' diet. You probably won't agree with everything in it, but you won't know unless you read it!

Dr Zoe Harcombe, nutritionist

A thoughtful, intelligent, highly informative and practically useful contribution to the seemingly intractable debate on what constitutes a healthy diet.

Joanna Blythman, award-winning food writer

This book couldn't be more timely with the obesity and diabetes spiral at an all-time high. A versatile and accessible solution for anyone who's struggled with weight loss or low energy - essential reading.

Robert Verkerk, founder of Alliance for Natural Health

Patrick Holford and Jerome Burne are superb communicators and their writings are soundly based on the scientific and medical literature and very much at the forefront of nutritional medicine.

Emeritus Professor David Smith, University of Oxford

Book Description

For years the battle lines have been drawn between two diet camps: the low-carb, high-fat diet fans and those who favour a more vegetarian diet, rich in carbs. So which is right? This groundbreaking book cuts through the controversy to discover a unique method of successfully blending the two.
