Ketogenic diets—diets that restrict carbohydrates to usually < 50 g/day to induce ketosis—are gaining popularity, for nutritional ketosis has been shown to lead to metabolic advantages including weight management and improvements in glycemic control and blood lipids.

As a result, there has been growing interest in maintaining nutritional ketosis via consumption of exogenous ketone drinks such as ketone esters (KE) and ketone salts (KS). The…

by Sara Gottfried, MD and Kari Hamrick, PhD, RD Did you grow up with parents who told you that breakfast is the most important meal of the day?  The word “breakfast” comes from breaking the overnight fasting period, and replenishing the body with a supply of glucose and other nutrients. It implies a period of metabolic rest that we know from ancestral health is beneficial, but in recent time, that period has shortened. While physicians and dietitians have touted the…

by Bianca Garilli, ND Understanding Lyme disease What do The Platters and Lyme disease have in common? Both, although for totally different reasons, are associated with “The Great Pretender.” The Platters landed their “Great Pretender” connection through the 1955 recording of the song by the same name, which would go on to reach the #1 position on the R&B and pop charts just a year later.1 Lyme disease, on the other hand, is unfortunately connected to the term “The Great Pretender”…

Obesity

by Ashley Jordan Ferira, PhD, RDN   Heart disease is killer Cardiovascular disease is the #1 cause of mortality globally (17.9 million deaths annually),1 so it makes sense that researchers, clinicians, and health policymakers want to hunt down the culprit(s) of the heart disease epidemic. Recognized risk factors for heart disease include overweight and obesity, hypertension, dyslipidemia, excessive alcohol consumption, physical inactivity, and smoking.2 With the exception of smoking and physical activity habits, one’s nutrition choices (i.e., diet) can mitigate…

by Annalouise O’Connor, PhD, RD Dyslipidemia is defined as an abnormal level of lipids in the blood and is often described most simplistically as greater levels of total or low-density lipoprotein (LDL), the “bad” cholesterol or particle number, or lower levels of high-density lipoprotein (HDL), the “good” cholesterol. Dyslipidemia is linked with cardiovascular risk and is highly prevalent: The minority of adults (46.6%) in the US have on-target total cholesterol levels (<200mg/dL).1 With cardiovascular disease (CVD) responsible for one in every…
