Ketogenic versus Mediterranean Diet Study
Sep 12, 2022 Episode 21
Andrea Nicholson, BCHN®

Today I’m sharing results from a research study looking at the differences and benefits between a well formulated ketogenic diet (very low carb at 12%-18% of intake) versus a moderate carb Mediterranean Plus diet (carb at roughly 36-37% of intake).  This information comes from a study published in May 2022 in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

Effect of a ketogenic diet versus Mediterranean diet on glycated hemoglobin in individuals with prediabetes and type 2 diabetes mellitus: The interventional Keto-Med randomized crossover trial

*Side note – please do read the ENTIRE study. This paper got a LOT of criticism for writing very biased abstract and conclusions that didn’t exactly match up to the data of this study. 5 of the study authors are on the board of a Plant-Based Coalition committee.
