For readers of Atul Gawande, Andrew Solomon, and Anne Lamott, a profoundly relocating, exquisitely saw memoir by means of a tender neurosurgeon confronted with a terminal melanoma prognosis who makes an attempt to respond to the query What makes a existence worthy living?

At the age of thirty-six, at the verge of finishing a decade’s worthy of educating as a neurosurgeon, Paul Kalanithi used to be clinically determined with level IV lung melanoma. at some point he was once a physician treating the death, and the following he was once a sufferer suffering to dwell. And similar to that, the long run he and his spouse had imagined evaporated.

When Breath turns into Air chronicles Kalanithi’s transformation from a naïve clinical scholar “possessed,” as he wrote, “by the query of what, on condition that all organisms die, makes a virtuous and significant life” right into a neurosurgeon at Stanford operating within the mind, the main serious position for human identification, and at last right into a sufferer and new father confronting his personal mortality.

The key ingredient of this diet is MCT oil. The body absorbs a medium chain fat or MCT much quicker than long chain fats such as butter. Because MCTs metabolize so quickly in the body, the body’s ketogenic potential is increased, making the body more efficient in producing higher ketones with less overall fat. It’s the basic “more bang for your buck” kind of theory: the MCT oil is so great at helping the body produce high ketones, less overall fat is needed. The big perk to the introduction of MCT oil into the diet is the possibility for higher carbohydrate foods such as rice, pasta, and potatoes—major no-no’s on both the classic Ketogenic diet and on MAD.

Carbohydrates are limited to 10 to 20 net grams a day in the beginning, though that number can be adjusted in time, depending on the success of the diet and the individual’s dietary needs. Unlike the Ketogenic diet, protein and calories are not limited, and fats are used liberally, though not formally measured. No food is weighed; instead, carbs are counted using standard USDA food guidelines as outlined in carb-counting books and online programs. There are even apps for counting carbs now. Chapter 4, “The Mess Hall,” has a useful list of carb-counting books and online resources.

Weigh your options, trust your gut, and make the choice that feels right for you. Preparing for Battle Once you’ve cast your lot in the diet therapy camp, you’ll need to start preparation, and not surprisingly, much of the initial battle prep is mental rather than physical. We explore this more fully in Chapter 2, “Boot Camp,” but it is important to know from the start that your attitude will largely influence whether you succeed or fail. It’s normal to be nervous, but if you honestly dread starting the diet and view it more as a punishment rather than an opportunity, you’re going to find the going very tough.
