Dietofy Ketogenic Diet

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate, and adequate-protein diet that has been developed for treatment of various diseases majorly Obesity, and Intractable Epilepsy. We made a thorough study about Ketogenic Diet and have gone through various researches. thus we are known to be one of the best Ketogenic diet designer for Weight loss and intractable epilepsy. Let us discuss the same in details and make you understand Ketogenic diet in detail.

Ketogenic Diet For Weight loss

A ketogenic diet is a high fat, low carbohydrate and moderate/adequate protein diet that works on the principle when no carbohydrate is stored in the muscles for energy, and the body burned fats instead of carbohydrates for the energy production ( this process is called as ketosis, to attain ketosis, you need to eat a diet that is very low in carbohydrate (amounts will vary depending on the plan you are following and the stage of that plan you are on, but to begin with can be as low as 20 grams a day).
The ketogenic diet is not only known to be one of the most effective weight loss tools, but has proven to have many health benefits also like Ketogenic Diets control blood sugar and minimize insulin spikes. When we eat carbohydrates, our blood-glucose levels rise rapidly. This causes an equally rapid insulin response from the pancreatic gland. The insulin disperses excess blood glucose, which causes you to feel hungry all over again. By eating a low carbohydrate diet, we keep our blood sugar levels low and steady, and as a result, carb-induced hunger spikes are avoided. Reducing insulin levels is paramount to success with any diet, as insulin is the hormone that tells our bodies to store fat. By keeping our insulin levels low, we create an environment within our bodies that limits fat storage and promotes fat breakdown.

Ketogenic diet for Intractable Epilepsy

Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders and affects people of all ages. It’s a brain disorder characterized by unpredictable seizures (convulsions) and can cause other health problems. Most individuals with epilepsy can successfully control their seizures with medication. However, 20–30% fail to achieve such control despite trying a number of different drugs this condition is referred to as intractable or refractory epilepsy (IE). For treating IE, Ketogenic diet is the best option. The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate, and adequate-protein diet that has been developed for treatment of pediatric epilepsy in the 1920s. The diet is effective in half of the patients who try it, and very effective in one third of patients. The efficacy of the ketogenic diet is better than most of the new antiepileptic drugs. Ms. Kanika (Dietician & Nutritionist) introduces an Indian version ketogenic diet which is more palatable and easy to follow. Dietofy team helps Intractable epileptic patients in treating their diseases with the help of Ketogenic diet, our team will take regular follow ups of these patients and teach their family members about the ketogenic diet recipes, measuring of ketones via keto dia stix etc. Even our team provides modified Atkins diet and the low glycemic index diet for the treatment of intractable epilepsy.
