Elle Russ chats with Victoria Field - who has more than 15 years of experience in the fitness and nutrition industry and has developed ketogenic protocols for both Epigenix Foundation and KetoPet while spearheading cancer-focused pilot studies in partnership with oncologists and world-renowned institutions including Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. Epigenix Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that was started by the co-founder of Quest Nutrition that has a mission centered on understanding the epigenetic impact of metabolic interventions on human and canine disease and performance. Since 2016, Victoria has helped more than 100 cancer patients and nearly 500 canines with a ketogenic approach to disease management. Victoria is passionate about educating people about the ketogenic diet, and in an effort to do so she co-founded Metabolic Health Initiative, an organization that hosts a large annual scientific conference - for both the professional and lay-person alike - called Metabolic Health Summit (MHS) in Los Angeles, California. MHS has a mission to revolutionize science and medicine by refocusing attention on the importance of nutrition and metabolism in treating disease, extending life, and improving human performance.
Victoria started her career as an NBC affiliate TV news and health anchor and reporter while running an international online training and nutrition business that benefited fitness beginners to pro-level athletes. Victoria is also a former professional athlete in the International Federation of Bodybuilding and Fitness.
