Ketogenic diets and protective mechanisms in epilepsy, metabolic disorders, cancer, neuronal loss, and muscle and nerve degeneration (Li et al., 2019)
New review out, that got a lot of stuff right!
For example, it’s useful to talk about starchy/net carbs in terms of % of calories because for people with vastly differing total daily energy intake, the actual grams will differ considerably. Also, if you want to know if your diet is ketogenic, there’s a neat little trick.
Topics covered: biochemistry of ketogenic diet-mediated energy generation, general health, type 2 diabetes, weight loss, fatty liver, neurodegeneration, muscle biology, and more!
