Local author Robert Santos-Prowse, MS, RDN will visit your library on Thursday, April 18 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. to talk about his new book, The Cyclical Ketogenic Diet: A Healthier, Easier Way to Burn Fat with Intermittent Ketosis. Santos-Prowse is a registered dietitian who specializes in low-carbohydrate and ketogenic diets.
According to Santos-Prowse, people on a ketogenic diet can lose weight, experience more energy, think more clearly, and gain control over their blood sugar. However, the traditional keto diet requires a restrictive low-carb and high-fat intake that can yield quick results but also can make it hard to maintain in everyday life. Santos-Prowse understands this dilemma; his book focuses on a cyclical variation of the diet that makes it more practical and sustainable but still provides long-term effects. To make the diet as accessible as possible, Santos-Prowse’s book includes nutrition tips, delicious recipes, and step-by-step meal plans.
Santos-Prowse became interested in the keto diet after learning about it in his graduate biochemistry class. He says, “I tried the diet for myself, experienced fantastic results, and fell in love with it.” Adult Services Library Clerk Pam Murray says that his firsthand experience and passion show through in the book. “Santos-Prowse’s straightforward way of describing nutrition both informs and encourages me. After reading his book, I feel like I can actually do the diet and that there are good reasons to try.”
Santos-Prowse describes himself as a father, registered dietitian, author, and student of human wellness. He graduated from ETSU in 2015 with a master’s degree in human nutrition. He currently works as a clinical dietitian for an inpatient rehab facility. Learn more about Robert Santos-Prowse and his version of the keto diet at www.robertsantosprowse.com.
