The National Institute of Health 10 Year Nutritional Plan draft does not include plans to study low-carb/keto diets for the next 10 years. “Follow the money” & “Read between the lines”: without specific mention, clinical trials of low-carb/keto diets are likely to be excluded from future funding. However, the Western, Mediterranean and vegetarian diets are specifically noted in the Draft Plan.
Our past comments helped persuade USDA-HHS to put “low-carb” and “saturated fats” on the list of topics to be studied for the next Dietary Guidelines. Now we need to let NIH know low-carbohydrate/ketogenic diets MUST BE INCLUDED in funding for clinical trials.
The Clock is Ticking: Please take the next 2 minutes NOW and be sure your comment is submitted by the December 15th Deadline

Subject: Comment on NIH 10 Year Nutrition Plan Draft
[for example only, your words are best]
The low carbohydrate/ketogenic diets have helped me, along with thousands of other Americans put obesity, diabetes and other metabolic diseases into remission and MUST BE INCLUDED in NIH funding for clinical trials for the next 10 years.
Please share and spread the word.
