windscar Posted February 4, 2011 Report Share Posted February 4, 2011 That diet change considerably the way our brain works, replacing glucose into ketone bodies as energy source. It's used widely by bodybuilders to lose weight and by epileptic patients with remarkable success, and has also been recently reported as an effective treatment to migraine. The ketogenic diet reduces seizure frequency by more than 50% in half of the patients who try it and by more than 90% in a third of patients. To do it all you have to do is eat from 60g to 120g of protein, zero carbohydrates and the remaining calories from good fats like olive oil and fish oil, and taking a multivitamin every day. It sets on after about 3 days and can be tested using a urine test you can buy in diabetics stores. Seems VERY worth trying. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
