Articles & Resources


There is a tremendous amount of information, and mis-information, about the ketogenic diet available on the Internet, in self-help books, and by self-proclaimed experts.  When otherwise healthy people simply want to lose a few pounds, relying on this information is probably fine. The worst that usually happens is they don’t lose weight.  However, when using the ketogenic diet to treat serious medical conditions, reliable and accurate medical information is essential. As a physician, I am looking to provide at least some of this information here on My goal is to provide the most accurate and up-to-date information from trustworthy sources based on research and evidence. I welcome your ideas and recommendations for additional resources to share here.
