If you have been following me for any length of time, you’ve heard me say often that “there is no one-sized-fits-all low carb or keto diet“. This is the one-hour presentation that I gave at Solving Healthcare’s Virtual Summit on August 9, 2020 where I elaborate on the various types of low carbohydrate & ketogenic (keto) diets, how they are different, what makes them similar, and various considerations in choosing between them.
The reason I chose to present on this topic is because there is the common, but mistaken belief that there is such as thing as “the keto diet” — which is high in fat; including heavy whipping cream, butter, bacon, avocado and fatty cuts of meat when there is in fact a range of “keto diets”, including several different therapeutic ketogenic diets used as Medical Nutrition Therapy in the treatment of epilepsy and as adjunct treatment (along with chemo and radiation glioblastoma), as well as keto diets that have been used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes and for weight loss.
