My journey on the ketogenic diet


This is a series of four blogs about my experience of starting the low-carb, high-fat ketogenic diet to control my seizure activity.  This strict diet has been a standard treatment for children with epilepsy for over twenty years and clinics are just now opening up to treat  adults in this way.


Blog 1 – First appointment at keto clinic

Blog 2 – Training day at clinic

(NB – Published by Epilepsy Society but currently only available on my blog)

Blog 3 – Update: Three weeks on the diet

Blog 4 – Update: Three months on the diet




I have also written a personal blog called Research Has Shown That Epilepsy Can Be Treated With a Low-Carb, High-Fat Diet.  Why Aren’t More Adults Treated This Way?
