Absolutely a must for a deep understanding of what this is all about. Taubes is highly credentialed, and lays out bullet proof logic backed by volumes of data. Not an easy read, take your time. -/u/b-rad62
My first keto book ever. Changed my life without doubt. And yours if you’re reading this. - /u/dem0n0cracy
Extremely interesting book that is an absolute pageturner with undeniable historical details into the production of sugar and how it has led to one of the greatest chronic disease climaxes of our time. Great first book. - /u/dem0n0cracy
Nice for lay people - much less technical than GCBC, but useful for a recourse - /u/dem0n0cracy
First, an absolute page turner of excellent investigative writing and research on how and why the conventional wisdom is anti-fat, especially anti-saturated fat, and why it is wrong. Second, the education you’ll get from understanding the fats that will make up the majority of your calories will be very comforting on this journey. You’ll be armed with up-to-date knowledge. -/u/b-rad62
Very popular keto / fasting book by one of the foremost doctors. -/u/dem0n0cracy
Excellent book about nutrition from the standpoint of a biochemistry professor - a really unique view into the world of nutrition and metabolism. Very wry Brooklyn humor. Talks about the new Second Low Carb Revolution of Taubes - Teicholz and new studies into keto science - basically what this whole subreddit is about. Feinman is also doing research on cancer and keto and runs a journal(Nutrition and Metabolism). -/u/dem0n0cracy
Kraft basically figured out how insulin works and revolutionized our understanding. I need to read this eventually. -/u/dem0n0cracy
An absolutely compelling and credible take down of all the conclusions that have been drawn from prior studies. This is your arsenal against dilettante skeptics of LCHF and your own personal doubts due to years of marketing low-fat pseudo-science. -/u/b-rad62
Let’s face it. After we lose those pounds of fat and are happy with the way we look, the main purpose of eating like this is to feel good and live long. This book helped me understand the science of heart disease and draw an important conclusion; the true answer to what causes heart disease is, “we don’t know”, but the so called “lipid hypothesis” which hypothesizes that it’s due to a high concentration of fat in your blood is hard to believe and based on weak science. Rather, cardio-vascular disease (CVD) is likely due to inflammation, caused by insulin, caused by glucose. After this book, I resolved that I will never take a statin to lower my cholesterol – ever. -/u/b-rad62
What an eye opener ! The books helps you understand drug studies and how they are controlled by the drug companies. This is a must read for any ketoer. Dr. Kendrick makes you realize peer review is not really a good thing all the time, when new ideas go against conventional ideas. His arguments against statins make you realize how the drug companies lie for profits. The books makes you think critically and it analyzes papers related to health and makes you realize that statistics can be twisted to support the researcher’s bias. Dr. Kendrick also points out that some of the treatment for heart diseases, like stent placement and bypass surgery have not been tested properly for effectiveness.
[The Fat of the Land by Vilhjalmur Stefansson (1956, 7 reviews, 4.5 stars)] (https://www.amazon.com/Fat-Land-Vilhjalmur-Stefansson/dp/8829534234/)
An extremely dense, but still somewhat accessible book about the nutrition side of cancer. The author builds on the Warburg effect and argues that cancer is not primarily caused by mutations, but by a reversal of the cell’s energy production to a more primitive state. This state uses glucose and certain proteins to produce energy via fermentation instead of oxygen. Working from this premise the author suggests fasting and a ketogenic diet to prevent cancer. While the author’s arguments were convincing, it sometimes feels he’s drifting too far away from mainstream diet and I’d like to see his conclusions supported by more large studies. -/u/manu_8487
Ben Goldacre has made a point of exposing quack doctors and nutritionists, bogus credentialing programs, and biased scientific studies. He has also taken the media to task for its willingness to throw facts and proof out the window.
The Magic Pill (2018) - Vimeo, NETFLIX - Big comment thread about TheMagicPill I cannot recommend this movie enough! Watch it with your family to understand keto science!! Buy it and have it to stream anywhere! -/u/dem0n0cracy
A healthy guy switches his food to ‘healthy’ ‘low-fat’ options and gains weight and becomes sick. Eye opening.
Make sure you understand the controversy over using surgery versus CAC scores when it comes to preventing cardiac events. -/u/dem0n0cracy

Alright, this is not a “pro-keto” book, so I guess it can’t be on the list. But I heard about if from Michael Eades’s review on his blog. The author Brady, like Eades before he retired, has a medical practice specializing in weight loss. Patients don’t visit him until they’ve failed to lose weight repeatedly on their own. He keeps up with the science but he also knows that, no matter what the science says, if patients can’t comply with a regimen, it’s not very good. He has read Good Calories, Bad Calories and takes it seriously. He agrees that keto outperforms low fat but he ultimately rejects it because he has found that it creates too many noncompliance problems. This book turned me on to the Protein Leverage Hypothesis, which blew my mind because of its scope and explanatory power. -/u/ZooGarten
The Keto Diet: The Complete Guide to a High-Fat Diet, with More Than 125 Delectable Recipes and 5 Meal Plans to Shed Weight, Heal Your Body, and Regain Confidence by Leanne Vogel (2017, 1149 reviews, 4.6 stars)
http://highsteaks.com/carnivores-creed/owsley-the-bear-stanley/ We have multiple doctors not only suggesting that people try a carnivorous zerocarb diet, but are even doing it themselves and realizing they too have been conned by the health and nutrition establishment.
” I like to go back and re-read these articles on occasion to refresh my understanding of the Keto lifestyle. Many people aren’t aware there there is a long unbroken string of professionals that have been using low carbohydrate interventions to combat obesity dating all the way back to the 1860s. This is by no means an exhaustive list, but rather shows a “lineage of thinking” that got us to where we are today. Some of these publications are hard to find now, so I leave them here for you to enjoy:
