Resources for Further Research and Reading

I have the found the resources below to be of great value in learning about the traditional and scientific evidence which supports a ketogenic diet. I've read all of the books several times over, bought them for loved ones and friends, and I recommend all of these books and websites without reservation to anyone wanting to learn more about low carbohydrate diets in general.

Website Resources

  • Metabolic Optimization: a new blog featuring interviews and information from Dr. Dominic D'Agostino, ketone expert and researcher at the University of South Florida and Travis Christofferson, author of Tripping Over the Truth: The Return of the Metabolic Theory of Cancer Illuminates a New and Hopeful Path to a Cure.

She wrote her graduate thesis on the use of ketogenic diets as therapy for Alzheimer's disease and now helps others understand the myriad benefits of carbohydrate restriction. She can help you too!

  • Denver's Diet Doctor: If you live in or near Denver and you are looking for a good physician who understands how to apply a low carb diet, I can highly recommend Dr. Jeff Gerber. He's warm, friendly, and an expert in Low-Carb High-Fat (LCHF), Ancestral, Paleolithic and Primal diets. Check out his blog too!
