I’ve previously posted on the Ketogenic Diet and cancer.

Dr Reinwald’s talk was especially interesting to Peter and me because it concerned a variant of the ketogenic diet we had never come across before – the Hyperketogenic Diet.

[This was the keynote speaker and the first presentation on the morning of the conference, on a subject that would be a recurring theme in other presentations.  Unfortunately, Peter and I  were driving from Frankfurt, and because of traffic congestion, arrived about 30 minutes from the end of the lecture.

My apologies therefore, that my notes are incomplete, and this post therefore does not do justice to Prof Luca-Moretti’s fascinating lecture.  If anyone has a recording of the lecture, please send it to me and I will be more than happy to fill in the gaps.  This post is an amalgamation of several information handouts to give the background to the MAP and to place the talk in its context.]

The Speaker:  Professor Doctor Luca-Moretti has a doctoral degree in medicine, and is former professor for clinical nutritionat St. Thomas University in Florida.  He was also scientific director, president and CEO of the International Nutritional Research Centre (INRC) in Coral Gables, Florida.  He is the discover of Master Amino Acid Pattern (“MAP”), and has published numerous scientific publications and received international awards for his discovery relating to MAP.
