Keto and COVID-19

According to several ongoing researchers, the Ketogenic diet may be a helpful tool in lowering a person’s chances of developing COVID-19 and preventing severity. Could the keto diet help prevent or mitigate severe COVID-19? Well Dr. David Harper thinks it can and he will be explaining why in his presentation in the Keto Salt Lake 2021 virtual conference on May 22, 2021.

I am delighted to be a keynote speaker at Keto Salt Lake this weekend. I’ll be talking about the science that supports a well-formulated ketogenic diet as a means to improve metabolic health to reduce the incidence of COVID-19 infection and improve outcomes if infected. It’s online and free to attend. On Saturday, May 22nd I’ll be presenting at 10:56 a.m. (EDT) / 7:56 (PDT) for about 35 minutes and answering questions live during my 35 minute presentation.
