What is the Ketogenic Diet?

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fueling brain function. However, if little carbohydrate remains in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis, leads to a reduction in the frequency of epileptic seizures.[1] Around half of children and young people with epilepsy who have tried some form of this diet saw the number of seizures drop by at least half, and the effect persists even after discontinuing the diet.[2] Some evidence indicates that adults with epilepsy may benefit from the diet, and that a less restrictive regimen, such as a modified Atkins diet, is similarly effective.[1] Potential side effects may include constipation, high cholesterol, growth slowing, acidosis, and kidney stones.[3]

The Different Types of Keto Diets

There are four different types of keto diets that people typically follow. The first is the Standard Ketogenic Diet (SKD), which is a very low-carb, high-fat diet that is typically used to treat epilepsy. The second is the Cyclical Ketogenic Diet (CKD), which is a low-carb, high-fat diet that is used to help people lose weight and build muscle. The third is the Targeted Ketogenic Diet (TKD), which is a low-carb, high-fat diet that is used to help people burn fat. The fourth and final type of keto diet is the High Fat, Low Carbohydrate Diet (HFLCD), which is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that is used to help people lose weight.

Pros and Cons of a Keto Diet

When it comes to the keto diet, there are definitely pros and cons to consider. On the one hand, this way of eating can help you lose weight and feel more energized. On the other hand, it can be challenging to stick to and may not be right for everyone.

Here are some of the main pros and cons of a keto diet:


-Weight loss. This is one of the biggest reasons why people try out the keto diet. And it can definitely work – many people lose a significant amount of weight on this plan.

-More energy. Since you’re not eating as many carbohydrates on a keto diet, your body starts to burn fat for energy instead. This can lead to an increase in energy levels throughout the day.

-Improved mental clarity. Some people find that they think more clearly and have better focus when they’re on a keto diet. This could be due to the increased levels of healthy fats and antioxidants in the diet.


-It can be hard to stick to. In order for the keto diet to work, you have to limit your intake of carbs pretty significantly. This can be tough for some people – especially if they love carb-heavy foods like bread and pasta.

-You may experience side effects at first. When you first start a keto diet, you may experience fatigue, headaches, and nausea as your

What Foods to Eat on a Keto Diet?

When it comes to food choices on a keto diet, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, you’ll want to focus on eating high-fat, low-carb foods. This means plenty of fatty meats, oils, and full-fat dairy. You’ll also want to make sure you’re getting enough fiber by eating leafy greens and non-starchy veggies. And finally, you’ll need to moderate your protein intake to ensure you’re not eating too much or too little.

Here are some specific food suggestions for a keto diet:

Meats: fatty cuts of beef, pork, lamb, chicken, turkey, etc.

Fish: salmon, tuna, mackerel, herring, etc.

Eggs: whole eggs with the yolk included

Full-fat dairy: milk, cheese, butter, yogurt

Oils and fats: olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, lard

Alternatives to the Ketogenic Diet

There are a few different ways to approach the ketogenic diet. Some people may find that the strict guidelines of the diet are too difficult to follow, and opt for a more flexible approach. There are a few different variations of the ketogenic diet that allow for more carbs and calories:

The Modified Atkins Diet (MAD): This diet is similar to the traditional ketogenic diet, but allows for more carbs and calories. MAD is typically used for children who have epilepsy, as it is easier to follow than the traditional keto diet.

The Low Glycemic Index Treatment (LGIT): This diet is also similar to the traditional ketogenic diet, but allows for more carbs and calories. LGIT is typically used for adults with epilepsy, as it is easier to follow than the traditional keto diet.

The Atkins Diet: This diet is not technically a “ketogenic” diet, but it is low-carb and high-fat. The Atkins Diet restricts carbs more than the other two diets mentioned above, but allows for more protein and fat.
