This course is for medical professionals who would like to better understand the therapeutic utility of intermittent fasting or ketogenic diets. We will review and compare the the biochemistry of ketone and and glucose metabolism and the potential therapeutic value to intermittent fasting and ketogenic diet for your patients. We will discuss research findings on which conditions benefit from IF/ketogenic diet, review the risks and contraindications, detail the appropriate medical monitoring through biometrics and laboratory testing, as well as how to instruct your patient on implementation these diets. Additionally, we will discuss exercise, weight loss, preservation of muscle mass and the proposed the influence of nutritional and botanical supplementation on IF and ketogenic diet outcomes.
