The Skinny on the KetoDiet – Tuesday, September 18th (5:15 – 6:30 PM)
Few diets have gotten more press lately than ketogenic (Keto) diet! It seems like everyone is wondering: What is it? Is it safe? Does it help with weight loss? In this Nutrition Talk, you will learn about the history of the ketogenic diet, the nutritional requirements of the diet, and what occurs in your body when “in ketosis.” Additionally, research will be presented about the KetoDiet and weight loss (short- and long-term), Alzheimer’s disease, diabetes, and other conditions. Finally, key long-term considerations and possible side effects of the KetoDiet will be discussed.
