4.5 Ketogenic Diet
THIS IS A VERY EARLY DRAFT
What happens if you eat a very low-carb, high fat diet ?
One study finds higher levels of Akkermansia and Parabacteroides reduce production of gamma-glutamylation and modulate hippocampal GABA/glutamate ratios.123
Here is the microbiome of a person who tried Keto for several weeks.
Now let’s compare two people. The red line is the person above, who tracked their microbiome while beginning the diet; the blue line is a person who has been on a ketogenic diet for six months or so. Interestingly, the genus Parasutterella seems in unusually high abundance in both cases. Does it somehow relate to a low carb diet?
