Bringing the Science of Keto to Spain
Ketogenics as it relates to childhood obesity as well as the benefits of implementing it into clinical practice.
I wanted to share some exciting news!
I’ll be traveling to Barcelona, Spain for the 11th International Conference on Childhood Obesity and Nutrition soon. I’ve been given the honor of presenting two keynote presentations at the conference. It’ll be held on March 15-16 and the theme is: Emphasizing Latest Innovations in the field of Childhood Obesity & Nutrition.
I am constantly thinking about how I can reach more people and impact more communities about healthful living. This is one great way!
I’ll be meeting with University Professors, Physicians, Metabolic and Bariatric Surgeons, Basic and Clinical Research Scientists, Nutritionists, Dietitians, Diabetes Educators, Integrated Health Professionals, Physical Therapists, Students, Industry Professionals, Fitness Professionals, Health Promoters, and Community leaders to discuss the worldwide obesity situation, how it’s impacting children, and what we can do about it.
Reaching children is so important because they can learn great habits that will stick with them through their entire lives. Children are our little humans… and as adults, we can be role models for them. What we eat, how we move (or don’t move), and our attitudes toward healthy lifestyles can place permanent impressions on them. What habits are we passing onto them? What habits are we NOT passing on to them? Sure, they may not always understand the value of eating whole, unprocessed foods (neither did I as a kid) but we can introduce these foods to them at an early age and make it fun! It saddens me when I talk to children today and ask them, “Where does lettuce come from?” Their response is usually, “The grocery store.”
I live in a major US city, so that’s the majority of answers I hear. I’m no horticulturist, but I do my best to tell them about farms and planting seeds!
That is a great metaphor for what WE can do with children…plant seeds. Some children I meet have been diagnosed with clinical obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol levels, among other conditions. That will be the focus of my talks in Barcelona: How to help children with these conditions.
I will be doing two keynote presentations:
Ketogenics: Beneficial Impacts on Childhood Obesity and Metabolic Syndrome
Ketogenics: Implementation in Clinical Practice and BioPsychoSocial Settings

I look forward to hearing from you and will circle back with what I learned from other professionals in Spain and will share my own experiences from there too!
