Dominic D’Agostino teaches at the University of South Florida Morsani College of Medicine as an associate professor. Also a researcher, Dominic D’Agostino dedicates time to studying the impact of ketogenic dieting on diseases such as cancer.

While the topic has not been studied in depth, integration of a ketogenic diet as a component of cancer prevention therapy has been the subject of numerous inquiries. A possible approach would recommend patients practice ketogenic intermittent fasting over the span of four to seven days to aid in purging cancer cells. If successful, patients would be advised to fast multiple times throughout a year.

Ketogenic intermittent fasting would involve dedicating 20 hours a day to consuming ketogenic fats and ketone supplements. In the remaining four hours, patients may eat a balanced meal following ketogenic rules, which limit carbohydrate and protein intake and maximize consumption of vegetables and fats found in nuts and dairy. Depending on the person, the ratio of fat to carbohydrate and protein can be as much as four to one.
