Ketogenic Diet Form A Mothers Experience

There are many experiments regarding epilepsy that can be read in newspapers or internet every other day. One of them I found was Ketogenic diet. Suggested to us by Doctors of Hinduja hospital. It turned out to be a miracle diet that helped my son who is an Epileptic.

I am not a dietitian. Nor have I any experience in medical line. Still I am writing this article because reading this may help a few who have no idea about Ketogenic diet.

My son had to be admitted to the hospital before starting this special diet. We were told that monitoring him will be necessary as this diet was in a way quite extreme.

Now the diet part comes. Ketogenic diet mainly consisted of proteins and fat in good quantities. No carbohydrates was one of the main factors. Next important thing I felt was the portion of food. It was quite less. Every three hours or so my son was advised to eat a portion of protein, fat and a little vegetable(only those mentioned in the chart) or fruit.

As days gradually progressed there was a marked improvement on his health front. Seizures drastically reduced and his weight was coming down too.
I thought about writing this article thinking that it may help people with weight problem. My first hand experience of the whole procedure was the one thing I had.

Conclusion- Ketogenic diet helps a child with uncontrollable seizures and deals with the overweight problem also.
Warning- This should not be tried on your own but under the guidance on doctors or nutritionists.
