Hello, and welcome to Diagnosis:Diet!
NEWS FOR MONTH OF AUGUST 2014
This year I was busy transitioning from Harvard University to Smith College but am finally able to return to regular postings this month. Thank you all for your patience!
I am not currently following a ketogenic diet due to the severity of my food sensitivities, which limit the types of fats I can eat and make the ketogenic diet challenging for me to sustain long-term, but I continue to follow a whole foods, ultra-low-carbohydrate, pre-agricultural, mostly-meat diet and feel great!
On May 5, 2014 I presented a talk at the American Psychiatric Association’s annual convention in New York City as part of a novel symposium about nutrition and mental health, along with Emily Deans MD and Drew Ramsey MD. My portion of the symposium will be entitled “Starvation, Ketosis, Sugar and Gluten: Macronutrients and Mental Health.” As this presentation was not recorded, I will summarize the information in blog post form soon.
A good time was had by all at the Ancestral Health Symposium in August 2013 in Atlanta! Unfortunately, video of my presentation entitled Brain Food: The Vital Connection between Diet and Mental Health cannot be made available, as the conference organizers experienced technical difficulties with the majority of the video recordings.
Videos of presentations from the 2012 Ancestral Health Symposium are available on vimeo. Below is my vegetable presentation–I hope you enjoy it!
