From Ketogenic to Low-Fat Vegan Diets


Two popular diets that would appear to be polar opposites are the low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet vs. a low-fat vegan diet. Yet, if you examine the evidence-based research underlying these dietary recommendations, you may be surprised to find less controversy and more consensus than you might expect.

Join us for a scientifically robust and entertaining webinar to explore a range of popular dietary patterns based on 25 years of human nutrition studies. You will learn to identify dishes and menu items that meet the guidelines of many of what might seem like contradictory diet patterns. By the end of the webinar, you will have practical tips and strategies for choosing an approach to how you eat that is good for you, good for the planet, and unapologetically delicious, based on first-hand research from the Stanford Prevention and Research Center.

This class will be recorded and a temporary link to the recording will be shared with all registered participants, which will be active for one week. Stanford University benefits-eligible employees must attend the live session in order to receive BeWell incentive points.

Instructor: Christopher Gardner, PhD, is a nutrition scientist and the Rehnborg Farquhar Professor of Medicine at Stanford. For 25 years, he has been studying what to choose to consume and to avoid for optimal health and how best to motivate individuals to achieve those healthy dietary behaviors.

Class details are subject to change.

Winter quarter registration opens on January 4
