I’m down over 60 pounds, and off all but 1 prescription medication!!! I was taking over 600 pills a month, prescription and non-prescription. I had headaches everyday, had no energy, severe acid reflux and had severe IBS. For the first time in my life I feel amazing!!! My body is changing, and it feels great. I used to be a carb loader, now I have turned my body into a fat burner thanks to you!! You have given me back my health, which I am forever grateful!!!! -Tanya

Cancer and Ketogenic Diet
Did you know that men can have ‘estrogen dominance’ too? Yep, one of the causes of prostate cancer is excess estrogen in men. (reference). Both androgen and estrogen have been reported to stimulate proliferation of cultured prostate cancer cells.
This diagram demonstrates estrogenic carcinogenicity in the prostate. The numbers refer to references supporting the corresponding pathway of estrogenic action. (To find the references and diagram click HERE).
A well-formulated ketogenic diet has an intense and fast effect on cancer. All of your body’s cells, including cancer cells are fueled by glucose. Conversely, cancer cells have one huge mortal flaw; they do not have the metabolic adaptability to be fueled off of ketones, but your healthy cells can thrive on ketones. Therefore, since cancer cells need glucose to thrive, and carbohydrates turn into glucose in your body, then cutting out carbs literally starves the cancer cells.
HEALTH TIP: Excess bad estrogen in the liver and fat cells is a leading cause of breast, thyroid and uterine cancer in women, as well as prostate cancer in men. Cutting out all of the estrogenic factors is extremely important (which I list in my Keto-Adapted book). A supplement called Estrofactors helps detox this bad estrogen out of the liver which will in turn heal liver function and increase T3 production for thyroid patients. Click HERE to find.
Unlike healthy cells that can get energy by metabolizing sugar in the mitochondria, cancer cells appeared to fuel themselves only through glycolysis, a less-efficient means of creating energy through the fermentation of sugar in the cytoplasm.
If most aggressive cancers rely on the fermentation of sugar for growing and dividing, then take away the sugar and the cancer can stop spreading. Meanwhile, normal body and brain cells switch to generate energy from fatty molecules called ketones, the body’s main source of energy on a fat-rich diet.
The healthiest way to stop feeding cancer cells isn’t to increase protein while subbing out excess carbohydrates; it is to increase healthy fats. Too much protein will increase glucose also via gluconeogenesis. I know I have written that many times, but it is such a common mistake that people make when cutting out carbohydrates. Limit protein to high-quality organic and pastured sources only.

you must be my chef. great recipe!
I just made these using kohlrabi. Thanks for the inspiration! I love your blog.
I’ve made this 3 times in 2 days, for me & 2 others, and it’s been a winner every time! I’ve been craving hashbrowns ever since I didn’t order them at IHOP & this really ‘hits the spot’! I tried it with added bacon bits & shredded cheddar on top & loved it. I also experimented with using 2 eggs. It was bigger but still held together to flip. It was more omlet like than hashbrown like but still delicious. Thank you for creating & sharing this wonderful recipe!
Purple cabbage for sure and not green cabbage?
I just used the green cabbage I happened to have in my fridge. It turned out so good, I went to the store and bought another head of green cabbage to make more! I haven’t even tried the purple cabbage yet! LOL! I’ve made this recipe about 6 times in the past 2 days. I’m officially in LOVE with this recipe. And it’s so simple and fast!! Thank you so much!!
I just took my first test nibble. Wow. Absolutely WOW. I have a huge batch of shredded cabbage, and I’m just going to keep making these until I have enough for several meals. Thank you for the recipe that fulfills a pretty long-standing craving! It’s brilliant!
FYI…These are 6 points if you are on WW. They look very good and I can’t wait to try them
Absolutely the best. Hubby (who HATES cabbage) and I are eating them constantly now. Yummy!
Was wondering if there is an egg taste with this as I HATE eggs. Or could you substitute something for the eggs. Thanks.
You could try a chia egg replacer. 🙂
I’m wondering why, in the nutritional comparison, does the healthified version have so many more calories than the traditional? I would think cabbage has less calories than potatoes..
I updated it above. I checked again and the traditional now reflects IHOP hashbrowns. 😉
