Here is an iterative provider list of clinicians who represent themselves as low-carb, ketogenic or pro intermittent fasting in their practice. We want to help you find clinicians in your area, but we are not a certifying body or a licensing agency. So we cannot endorse the quality of care a clinician will provide. Patient beware. You must use your judgement before you engage any service listed here. Always check for relevant licensing and/or certification.
There are many different versions of the ketogenic diet. If you are on prescription medications or have a medical condition then please work with a competent clinician because dangerous adverse events can occur.

Keto for Psych – Ketogenic diet for psychiatric conditions
The strongest evidence for treatment-resistant brain conditions points to using the Dietary Therapies for Epilepsy rather than Prescription of Carbohydrate Restriction as a Therapeutic Intervention. One major difference is the former focuses on the ratio of fat grams to grams of carbohydrate and protein. The latter focuses on daily grams of dietary carbohydrates.
Do I care if the practitioner is licensed or certified?
Countries and states have their own licensing of health care providers and who may practice what where. Doctors and registered dietitians are typically licensed while nutritionists are not. Some of these regulatory restrictions have relaxed during the COVID-19 pandemic.
