 Hello, and welcome to Diagnosis:Diet!


I am delighted to announce that, In order to rededicate myself to my nutrition work on this site, I recently reduced my hours at Smith College, so you can expect new posts at least once a month from now on. I appreciate your patience with my long absence and am very happy to be back. I hope you will find the new information I have to share interesting and helpful! For those who have been wondering, I am back on a ketogenic diet again, after taking a break from it for over a year, and am feeling great.
