Ketogenic Q&A Part 1: Introduction to the Ketogenic Diet


Dominic D’Agostino, PhD; Assoc. Professor, Dept. of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology, University of South Florida

In Q&A Part 1, Dr. Dominic D’Agostino shares his personal experience working with the US Navy to research the cellular and molecular mechanisms of oxygen toxicity seizures, which are a significant limitation for Navy SEAL fighters using special breathing apparatuses. This research allowed Dr. D’Agostino to unearth the unique benefits of nutritional ketosis to target energy metabolism pathways, thereby limiting seizures in Navy SEALs, even during times of oxidative stress. Dr. D’Agostino discusses the evidence basis for the ketogenic diet, not only for neuroprotection, but in metabolic disorders and cancer pathology. Dr. D’Agostino also explains how to utilize a ketogenic food plan to achieve a ketogenic state.
