Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER.

The ketogenic diet is a special high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that helps to control seizures in some people with epilepsy. It is prescribed by a physician and carefully monitored by a dietitian. It is stricter than the modified Atkins diet, requiring careful measurements of calories, fluids, and proteins.

The typical ketogenic diet, called the "long-chain triglyceride diet," provides 3 to 4 grams of fat for every 1 gram of carbohydrate and protein.
Usually when the classic ketogenic diet is prescribed, the total calories are matched to the number of calories the person needs.

The kinds of foods that provide fat for the ketogenic diet are butter, heavy whipping cream, mayonnaise, and oils (e.g., canola or olive).
Because the amount of carbohydrate and protein in the diet have to be restricted, it is very important to prepare meals carefully.
