Episode Info: So, for me, it was kind of liberating that once youre in ketosis youre not that hungry. And then, in the context of elevated ketones, theyre sort of anti-catabolic, and I talked about that a little bit. And, it liberated me from food. But when I I like to enjoy food; I think food should be- I dont think we should deprive ourselves of food. So, depriving myself of carbohydrates, thats not something that I miss. So, and if people really miss that and enjoy that, I dont think they should eliminate it from their menu or their meals. I think we need to enjoy food, thats part of the process. But I enjoy food much more if Im a little bit hungry. I appreciate the food, I enjoy it. Ketogenic food is like indulgent to me because for years thats the stuff I avoided. So, Im more happy with my food now than I ever was, I think. And I dont have irrational food behavior. Dominic DAgostino Dominic DAgostino, Ph.D., is an assistant professor in the Department of Molecular Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine and a senior research scientist at the Institute for Human and Machine Cognition. With a diverse background in neuroscience, pharmacology, nutrition and physiology, Dom brings a unique perspective to the ketogenic diet. He believes it can be applied not just in treating medical conditions but also in contributing to overall health and optimizing human performance. The findings from his research on nutritional ketosis have been utilized by Navy SEALs and NASA, and he recently has been at the forefront of research involving the use of nutritional ketosis as a tool to treat cancer. I had the opportunity to sit down with Dom at the 2019 CrossFit Health Conference in Madison, where he presented on the emerging applications of ketosis. We talked about the basics of the ketogenic diet, how it can fit into the everyday persons lifestyle, and the exciting research hes conducting to learn more about using metabolic therapies in the treatment of cancer. In this episode we discuss: What brought Dom to the CrossFit Health Conference His background and what influenced him to become a research scientist What led him to study nutritional ketosis A broad overview of the ketogenic diet Whether its necessary to actually measure ketones The physiological impacts of being in a state of ketosis The known and emerging applications of nutritional ketosis Whether there is an advantage to being in a state of ketosis versus simply eating low carb Populations for whom keto might not be a good fit Why keto can appear to affect men and women differently How ketosis can fit into a typical CrossFitters lifestyle and a competitors lifestyle What we know about ketosis and the microbiome The metabolic theory of cancer and why ketosis may be a tool for treatment How press-pulse therapy can be used as a metabolic management tool in the treatment of cancer What drives Dom to do self-experimentation and what hes learned from it T...
