The Hybrid Diet

The Hybrid Diet

Monday, April 8, 2019 - 19:00 to 20:30
Alternatives says: 
Variation of diet not moderation is the key to health and slowing down ageing.

This evening, Patrick will discuss the benefits of The Hybrid Diet and how your body thrives on two fuels: ketones generated from fat or glucose from carbs. Alternating between the two is the hottest health secret.

There are two effective ways to regain health and lose weight: a high fat, ‘ketogenic’ diet and a slow carb, ‘low GL’ diet. Both outperform the outdated conventional low calorie, low fat diet in all respects – weight loss, health gain and hunger control.

The worst of both worlds is the combination of animal fat and refined carbs – the hallmark of junk food. Yet, something magical happens when you switch between a Slow Carb and a High Fat diet, mimicking the natural cycle of feast and famine.

You will learn why eating Hybrid is the best way to:

  • Get the benefits of fasting without going hungry

  • Prevent and reverse diabetes

  • Lose weight without going hungry

  • Stay cancer-free and suppress cancer cell growth

  • Repair and rejuvenate your body, slowing ageing

  • Stabilise dementia, epilepsy and other neurological disorders

  • Prevent and reverse heart disease
