Dr Chris Palmer is a Harvard psych who treats his clients with lifestyle (and medication when necessary) centred around a keto diet. He claims incredible success for mental illness such as schizophrenia. He doesn’t claim as much success with ASD but does notice improvements in some markers. He has a new book out called Brain Energy where he explains the science behind a keto diet for mental illness. Essentially it’s a metabolic dysfunction within the mitochondria.

If you search through your favourite podcast app you will likely come across some useful interviews with him.
