Dr. Will Cole is a leading functional medicine expert who consults patients around the world via webcam and locally in Pittsburgh. Dr. Cole was named one of the top fifty functional-medicine and integrative doctors in the nation, and is the author of the book, Ketotarian, in which he melds the powerful benefits of a ketogenic diet with a plant-based one.
We love Will’s approach to the Keto diet—for all of us out there who aren’t down with the meats, there’s still a way to get the benefits of this uber popular diet, and he wrote the book on it. Quite literally.
He helps us understand the difference between conventional (Western) medicine and the integrative approach, which we hopefully all agree is the proper path. Western meds are great when you break your leg, but it’s time to seriously rethink how we approach preventative care for chronic illness. Hint: it starts on your plate. A carb-restricted diet has come a long way since Dr. Atkins started touting steak and eggs as the breakfast of champions. We’re happy to report there’s now room for veggie lovers at this table.
There’s a lot to unpack in order to understand how ketones play a role in your health. Tune in to find out! We’re totally starting a band to play at wellness summits called the Ke-Tones….
Dr. Cole started early in the healthy lifestyle game as a kid--they were drinking the Kool-Aid around his house before it was Kool. Um because his dad was Mr Pittsburgh…please just listen for details.
He breaks down the difference between conventional and integrative medical practices. It gets kinda nerdy but it totally makes sense why we’re stuck in this hamster wheel of western sick care.
Can we put an end to this whole “detox myth” crap? It’s simply not enough that our bodies are BUILT to eliminate toxins naturally—we actually have to give them the fuel in order to do so. So that Bloomin Onion is not really going to find its way out of your system without a little help…
Ketogenic + Plant Based come together to make Ketotarian, the perfect combination. Like peanut butter and chocolate…as long as it’s keto chocolate and almond butter.
Ketotarian is about getting the benefits of ketosis in a more sustainable way. Break the blood sugar crash cycle. Avoiding vegetables because you’re afraid of the carbs is NOT the way to do this properly. So onion lovers, rejoice! We’re talking to you, Zoe’s mom…
He breaks down a few days worth of food in the Ketotarian diet—there’s more there than you think! And it’s tasty. Organic wines can enhance ketosis…after eight weeks. Settle down, it’s time to detox before you retox.
