The overall objective of this program is to train professionals on the appropriate, safe, and effective therapeutic use of ketogenic nutrition to improve clinical outcomes in a broad range of chronic metabolic conditions. By translating cutting-edge nutrition science research into practice, this program will: 1) provide gold-standard training for nutrition and other healthcare professionals on the optimal use of ketogenic nutrition, including when it is of benefit and when it is contraindicated, and 2) raise awareness of the benefits of ketogenic nutrition when implemented under the direction of a trained healthcare practitioner.
The ketogenic diet (KD) is a growing area of nutrition science research and of public interest, but few vetted, science-based training programs for healthcare practitioners currently exist on how to properly implement a KD. The American Nutrition Association (ANA) has developed this online program to provide the robust standards needed to enable practitioners to best determine when ketogenic nutrition is indicated and how to implement it to personalize intervention and optimize outcomes.
This foundational program has been designed to meet the foundational concepts of the ketogenic diet and does not lead to the credential of a Certified Ketogenic Nutrition Specialist. To learn more about the full program that leads to certification, visit THIS course.
The program consists of 2 modules is geared toward nutrition and other healthcare practitioners with nutrition in their scope of practice who wish to learn the basic concepts of the ketogenic diet.
Modules 1 and 2 introduce ketogenic nutrition by addressing the history of the ketogenic diet and the basic foundations of the science in support of it, as well as an understanding of ketone metabolism and the general principles of dietary formulation.
