In Ketone Power, Cristi Vlad, self-experimenter and avid researcher outlines a common denominator in terms of nutrition, health, and physical performance. After all, human DNA is 99% exactly the same. So, there should be a prescription (Rx) that works for the majority of us.
Cristi himself, fed up with not being able to lose the last few pounds of his belly fat, has started studying and experimenting with ketogenic nutrition and ketosis.
Ketosis is the metabolic state where your body uses fat and ketone bodies (by-products of fat) as the main source of fuel and it is achieved by drastically eliminating sugar from the diet. Long-term constant ketosis leads to keto-adaptation.
Keto-adaptation brought various improvements in Cristi Vlad's existence, such as: fat loss, elimination of hunger, elimination of cravings for high-carbohydrate foods, improved mental performance, ultra-high energy levels, less sleep required per night, better sleep, enhanced endurance and strength training ...
This generalised guide culminates experience coming from four generations of off-road drivers, using a large variety of vehicles in the mountainous areas of Greece. It's the result of literally millions of kilometres, starting from the late 1920s and carrying on to modern times. Going from the slow, less capable cars of the past to today's 4X4s.
Any experienced overlander may tell you that this subject is next to impossible to cover in a single book, let alone in a quick, easy & dirty guide. The author's purpose is to provide enough basic rules to cover a sufficient number of bases - so that any novice may be able to begin their first off-road excursions staying as safe as possible, and living to tell the story, without any drama, whether it be financial or due to a severe accident.

Fifty years ago this year, six friends and I were determined to get away from the predictable, miserable summer weather in Great Britain. We wanted to venture further afield for our holidays, travelling to a country where we were guaranteed blue sky, endless sunny days, warm nights, golden sand, Azure crystal waters, bikini clad bronze bodies, and ice-cold beers... To commemorate this once-in-a-lifetime holiday, I have recounted the incredible experiences from a journal written at the time by one of the seven, Steven Wilson, as we drove through the heart of France and Spain in 1969.
