Keto Resources Post

Here is a list of links to videos, websites, research articles and books that have positive information about low carb and/or ketogenic diets. I plan to update this resource list as I find items. Because I am diabetic, these links are unsurprisingly geared toward managing diabetes. Please help me get some links that focus on other diseases, particularly epilepsy.

Note: I receive no monies from any of these links; they are provided merely for convenience


Article from Diabetes Self Management in 2008 regarding ADA approval of low-carb diet (additional links to the ADA website are in the article):

Article from Medscape in 2013 regarding ADA aceeptance of low-carb diet in controlling diabetes (their main objection seems to be that some people don't stick with it):
New ADA Guidelines Focus on 'Eating Pattern' not 'Diet'

Blood Sugar 101 Author: Jenny Ruhl Written by a diabetic for diabetics, this book advocates a low carb diet as one of the underpinnings of successful diabetes management

The Art and Science of Low Carbohydrate Living Authors: Jeff S. Volek, PhD, RD; Stephen D. Phinney, MD, PhD An outstanding book, the authors are the most knowledgeable and respected researchers in the ketogenic arena

Diabetes Solution Author: Richard K. Bernstein, MD While I generally shy away from anything that sounds like it might be promoting a "cure" for diabetes, this book is written by an 80+ year old physician who has been a Type 1 diabetic since 1946. He has successfully controlled his disease by eating a ketogenic diet, with minimal insulin usage.
