On ‘Psychology Behind the Headlines’, hosts Jessica Reyes, Patricia Wu, and guest therapist Ryan Heapy discuss a new study from Stanford Medicine suggests a high-fat, low-carb ketogenic diet might be a powerful tool for managing difficult mental health conditions.

Keto and the Brain

Research is increasingly showing a link between our gut health and our mental health. For some people, a ketogenic diet, which is very low in carbohydrates, might dramatically improve mental well-being.

Promising Study Results

The Stanford study adds to the evidence that keto could be helpful for those with serious mental health conditions like schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Challenges and Considerations

Sticking to a ketogenic diet can be difficult, especially for those with mental health struggles where motivation and energy levels may already be low. It’s important to talk to a doctor or dietician before making major changes to your diet.
