Keto Episode Show Notes and Links In this episode, Kevin Klatt, PhD, and Katherine Pett, MS, RDN explore the science and history of the popular keto diet. When are these diets used for medical purposes and what are their most popular uses? Does science back up the most popular claims? Namely, can a keto diet improve your metabolism by increasing fat-burning and does it significantly reduce appetite? What about glycemic control? The hosts explore what the literature currently says, and doesn't say, about the keto diet. Look out for the next episode where Kevin and Katherine report on their own experiences trying the keto diet. Other sources (none of these are sponsored) for your reference!
