Think you’re eating healthy? Think again.

For the past forty years, we have been slowly eating ourselves to death—and doing so based on government guidelines about what constitutes a healthy diet. This grand low-fat, high-carbohydrate dietary experiment has led to epidemic increases in obesity and other chronic conditions, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s.

It’s time to hit the reset button. In BioDiet, Health educator and researcher Dr. David G. Harper offers a new, scientifically validated approach: a low-carbohydrate, high-fat, ketogenic plan that works with the body’s natural processes to improve health and reverse decades of damage caused by our collective carbohydrate addiction. BioDiet isn’t a “diet” in the usual sense: it’s not a quick fix designed to help shed ten pounds before beach season. Drawing on his professional experience and the latest research in nutritional science, BioDiet is a lifestyle that will leave you healthier and happier. No hype or gimmicks: it’s what the science says.

About the Author

As a health educator and cancer researcher, Dr. David G. Harper has studied the impact of diet on human health for many years. The culmination of that extensive work is the BioDiet, a ketogenic food regimen that he and his wife began in 2012. The significant weight loss and health improvements they experienced led Dr. Harper to counsel hundreds of people on the BioDiet, with similarly consistent and impressive results.

Dr. Harper is an associate professor of kinesiology at the University of the Fraser Valley and a visiting scientist at the BC Cancer Research Center, Terry Fox Laboratory. He holds a PhD from the University of British Columbia and completed a post-doctoral fellowship in comparative physiology at the University of Cambridge. He is on the scientific advisory board of the Canadian Clinicians for Therapeutic Nutrition and is a member of the Institute for Personalized Therapeutic Nutrition.
