Dr. Georgia Ede, MD is a Harvard-trained psychiatrist specializing in nutrition science, brain metabolism, and mental health. She teaches the CME-accredited metabolic psychiatry clinician training course Ketogenic Diets for Mental Health and writes about food and the brain for Psychology Today and her own website DiagnosisDiet. In 2022, Dr. Ede collaborated with Drs. Albert Danan, Eric Westman, and Laura Saslow to publish the groundbreaking study: The Ketogenic Diet for Refractory Mental Illness: A Retrospective Analysis of 31 Inpatients. Her forthcoming book Change Your Diet, Change Your Mind will be published in 2023.


Her two decades of clinical experience include twelve years at Smith College and Harvard University Health Services, where she was the first to offer nutrition-based therapies as an adjunct or alternative to psychiatric medication. Since 2019, her clinical work has focused exclusively on the use of nutrition and metabolic interventions to help people address root causes of poor mental health. Dr. Ede speaks internationally about nutrition science, nutrition policy reform, and dietary approaches to psychiatric conditions.

Dr. Ede was a recipient of the prestigious Metabolic Mind grant in November 2022.
