Hello! My name is Caroline, and I’m a registered dietitian and graduate student. During the course of my doctoral studies, I’ve developed an interest in ketogenic diets, particularly as an adjunctive therapy for gynecologic cancers (i.e., ovarian and endometrial). Ketogenic–that is, high-fat, low-carbohydrate, and moderate protein–diets have gained a lot of popularity in recent years, and while there is growing research evidence of these diets’ benefits, that science-based information is not always what is disseminated on popular blogs and websites. Accordingly, I’ve decided to create this space, where I can share accurate information to facilitate success on a ketogenic diet, whether your end goal is to lose weight, manage diabetes, or minimize chemotherapy side effects–and you won’t have to worry that I’m just trying to sell you a supplement 😃
Despite all that emphasis on science, I do intend on making this a fun space. I love food, and I blogged elsewhere for almost ten years (The Broccoli Hut–the site is no longer active, although I think the early days are still preserved as a blogspot address. Don’t judge me for the content you might find there!). As a result, making recipes, grocery shopping, and generally talking about food has been a hobby of mine for a while; I suppose I’m in the right profession then, huh?
I’m not quite sure where to begin on this new blogging adventure, so let me know in the comments what you’d like to see in future posts. I’m pondering the idea of
stealing borrowing my husband’s GoPro camera too, if video posts are of interest.
Thanks for stopping by!
