Thank you so much for joining me on day four of the “Reverse Alzheimer’s Summit.” I’m excited to share with you some of the takeaways and kind of go back over the ketogenic diet and what we see at Marama and at, so sorry, the clinic. So we’ve talked a lot about diet today and nutrients and nourishing our bodies so that our brains are optimally functional. And ketosis is really what I think at this point, at this stage with the data that we have right now, ketosis really makes the most sense to me. And there are ways to do it in a really, really, really healthy manner so that you’re not just eating bacon and cheese all day. I know Amy and I talked about that earlier today. You may have seen her talk and she was like, “No, no, it’s okay, bacon and eggs, bacon and cheese, for a couple of weeks to get into ketosis is maybe okay, that we don’t have to be so stringent about, or dogmatic about what’s healthy versus what’s not, but it’s really about flipping that metabolic switch, and that’s what’s so compelling about the ketogenic diet, especially for our brains. So I wanna make sure that you have lots of resources to do this from home. I really love Amy’s book. Brant and Amy were both interviewed today. So they both have books that are fantastic, and that I refer to a lot for my patients and also for all of you, of course, to get the benefit of all of the information in those books. And then the keto mojo and this website,,, it is full of fantastic information about the ketogenic diet. And so there are recipes, recommendations, frequently asked questions, and of course, all of their answers, lots of information about how to use the keto mojo app and that meter, the best… This is the most essential tool I think in terms of getting into ketosis.
