This is obviously not an exhaustive list and I do my best to always include the best-researched resources for cancer nutrition, metabolism and the low carb ketogenic diet. If you have written about keto and I somehow missed you, please contact me so that I can include you on this list! Thanks!
Research and Science
This website allows you to keep track of the clinical research into ketogenic diets. Type for instance “ketogenic diet and cancer” into the search box and you will find current and completed trials.
My first port of call when I do research!
Websites worth checking out
It’s a great honour to be a founding and advisory board member of the European Centre for Ketogenic Metabolic Therapies. Josephine Barbarino organised the first Keto-Live Conference in my home country, Switzerland, in 2019. Many illustrious doctors, scientists and practitioners are now on board to change the medical landscape of metabolically driven diseases- which includes many non-communicable conditions.
Dr Dominic D’Agostino, PhD is an assistant professor at the University of South Florida College of Medicine. He teaches courses in molecular pharmacology and physiology. Dominic is very busy maintaining involvement in several studies researching metabolic treatments for neurological disorders such as seizures, Alzheimer’s, ALS and cancer—all of which are metabolically linked.
Dr Colin Champ is currently an assistant professor in the department of Radiation Oncology at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He has a keen interest in dietary and exercise effects on the prevention and treatment of cancer.
My friend and colleague Ellen Davis has years of research and her own health experience in recommending the ketogenic diet. I consider her the “keto brain”- her knowledge in all things keto is amazing and her book has helped thousands of patients! Ellen is in the final stages of completing her Master in Nutrition.
Miriam Kalamian is a nutrition professional specialising in the use of the Ketogenic Diet for cancer and other metabolic diseases. Her clinical experience in the implementation of the diet is vast and she has helped many patients around the globe- also with her eBook on the subject. She holds a Master of Science degree in Human Nutrition from Eastern Michigan University.
Elena Gross, PhD, is not only a highly esteemed colleague of mine but has become a close friend over the years. Her brilliance when it comes to brain health shines through in her riveting lectures and she’s one of the world authorities in ketosis and nutrients for brain health.
Martina Slajerova is not only a fun and interesting person to hang out with, she’s also created a fantastic resource with lots of expert articles, creative recipes and insightful information.
Dr Georgia Ede is an MD that is passionate about the connection between food and all aspects of our physical and mental health. She often uses herself as a guinea pig and her blog posts are not only informative and evidence-based but also practical and entertaining. We finally met in person in Switzerland in 2019 and I loved hanging (and geeking) out with her.
Ivor Cummins is a fellow Irish man (yay!) and chemical engineer who threw himself into in-depth research of metabolism, nutrition and biochemistry following “less-than-ideal blood test results”. His sharp mind, refreshing interviews and spot-on information make his blog an invaluable resource.
Similar to Ivor, Marty Kendall is an engineer with an avid interest (and understanding!) of nutrition “who tries to optimise things with numbers”. His analyses can be quite technical for beginners but his website is also full of very practical nutrition info not to be missed.
