Patrick is excited to announce that he will be releasing his latest book, The Hybrid Diet, co-authored by award-winning UK medical and health journalist Jerome Burne here in SA in May. Overthrowing predominant dieting theories, The Hybrid Diet, outlines a revolutionary nutrition plan based on the latest research into the body’s processing of calories.
With the ever-increasing global epidemic of obesity, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease, The Hybrid Diet has already generated an international surge of interest in its practical, cutting-edge approach to nutrition.
“It is painfully obvious that this remedy isn’t working. The less you eat, the hungrier and more exhausted you feel, and as a result you are less likely to do any exercise and burn the calories you have eaten,” says Patrick.
According to Patrick and Jerome, the reality is that the public has been misguided into thinking the solution to weight loss is to eat less fat.
“Our body’s evolutionary design is two-fold: we generate energy from the glucose in carbohydrates and ketones from our body fat. When your blood sugar level rises too high, your body dumps the excess into storage as fat, and then when your blood sugar level plummets, you feel hungry. That’s why modern man is getting fatter and sicker,” says Patrick.
The Hybrid Diet provides a comprehensive guide to how the body efficiently derives and processes energy efficiently from food.
“The key to preventing fat storage and supporting a healthy metabolism is alternating between a ‘slow’-carb and high-fat diet,” says Patrick.
