Cardiometabolic, Obesity

Ketone bodies (including acetoacetate, β-hydroxybutyrate and acetone) are produced mainly by the liver from fatty acids during fasting, prolonged physical activity, starvation, or ketogenic diets (diets that restrict carbohydrates to usually < 50 g/day). The metabolic state in which ketone bodies are utilized as the main energy source for the body instead of glucose is called ketosis. Physiological or nutritional ketosis has been shown to lead to several metabolic advantages including weight management and improvements in glycemic control and blood lipids.1 An…

Christopher Keroack, MD, IFMCP The ketogenic food plan can facilitate significant improvements in weight management and chronic disease for patients. Transitioning out of the ketogenic dietary pattern is equally as important as the initiation. If the transition is implemented incorrectly, the improvements seen during the diet may be attenuated or lost. Dr. Keroack imparts a step-by-step approach to gradually transition patients from the ketogenic platform into a long-term eating pattern. Watch the full MAPS Talk: View Now

by Ashley Jordan Ferira, PhD, RDN Three months of nutritional ketosis provided relief from chronic cluster headache (CCH), according to a study by Di Lorenzo and colleagues.1 Headache complaints are among the most commonly reported neurological disorders. Migraines affect 1 in 7 adults annually and are 2x more common in women than men. In contrast, cluster headache (CH) is rare, affecting < 1% of the population and is 6x more common in men.2 CH is the most severe type of…

Christopher Keroack, MD, IFMCP Understanding food plan macronutrient ratios is straightforward, but the actual implementation of a ketogenic program and achieving desired results in diverse patients can be more difficult. Dr. Keroack shares the clinical challenges and successes he has experienced while guiding patients through the ketogenic food plan. He discusses patient improvements in the areas of hormone balance, insulin sensitivity, weight loss, and overall metabolism. Learn how to implement the ketogenic diet with success.

Scott Bergman, DC, CTN, DAAIM; Director, Chiro Kinetics Dr. Bergman discusses inflammation and speaks about common inflammatory conditions and their underlying causes. Dr. Bergman suggests that the first place to start for patients with inflammatory dysfunction is the ketogenic diet. In this talk he will explore the biochemical process of the therapeutic ketogenic eating program and explain how it helps disease states as well as supporting athletes, for better endurance, faster recovery, and improved overall performance.

Cardiometabolic, Foundational, Obesity

by Milene Brownlow, PhD It seems like we’re always on our way to a destination. Whether it’s a physical journey, such as traveling out of town, or a mental one, like getting ready for a job interview, we must prepare for the journey in order to get there. Entering a state of ketosis is no different. Strategic planning is important. What is “ketosis,” and how can you get there? Many people associate ketosis with a popular diet program and as…

In Part 1 of this 2-part series, Jeff Volek, PhD, RD reviews the concept of ketogenesis, nutritional ketosis, and keto-adaptation. He discusses the utility of ketogenic diets in clinical practice and the potential benefits of the ketogenic approach to enhance physical performance, manage inflammation, and improve lifespan. Dr. Volek is a Professor in the Department of Human Sciences at The Ohio State University. For 20+ years, Dr. Volek has studied the effects of how diets extremely low in carbohydrates can induce…

Ryan Lazarus, DC, MS, CNS, IFMCP If you had three wishes to improve your health, what would they be? Dr. Lazarus identifies the three main areas most patients desire improvement in: gain energy, lose weight, and improve the aging process. Dr. Lazarus discusses a therapeutic metabolic reboot via nutritional ketosis, when the body uses fat as alternative fuel by reducing overall calorie input, reducing carbohydrate intake, and maintaining adequate protein intake. He provides simple implementation strategies to help patients safely achieve ketosis…

Ryan Lazarus, DC, MS, CNS, IFMCP In this preview of Dr. Lazarus’ talk on the ketone diet and anti-aging, he examines the body of research that demonstrates how the ketogenic food program effectively treats many metabolic conditions including metabolic syndrome, diabetes, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and other neurodegenerative disorders. Dr. Lazarus provides insights on how to best implement a ketogenic food plan. Lastly, he explores the biochemical and genetic underpinnings that mediate the ketogenic diet’s effects.
