The Empowering Neurologist – David Perlmutter, MD, and Dr. Will Cole


When Grain Brain first hit shelves, one of the first questions I started to hear repeated to me again and again was “This is great and all, but what can I do if I’m a vegetarian?” The answer is simple: you can be a vegetarian and follow the Grain Brain lifestyle, no problem (and if you want to learn more about this, visit our vegan/vegetarian focus page).

Now as similar lifestyles begin to take the spotlight, the ketogenic lifestyle chief among them, the same question, posed about these diets, are coming to the fore. Thankfully, Dr. Will Cole is here to help.

In his new book, Ketotarian, Dr. Cole lays out a lifestyle plan that expertly marries the vegetarian and ketogenic diets, bringing together the fat-burning power of ketogenic eating and the clean green benefits of a plant-centric plate. What could be better!
