Modified Atkins Version of Keto for Seizure Control – More Accepted by Medical Professionals

July 31, 2019 0 By William Morgan


we’re looking at different versions of
the ketogenic diet today and right now
we’re going to talk about the modified
Atkins diet and this is something that’s
kind of coming up in the medical
literature as we are looking at the
ketogenic diet for seizure control and
stain and ketosis and where the classic
4:1 ratio diet that we had
talked about in a previous video will
keep people in ketosis there is a lot of
evidence to support that the modified
Atkins diet which is what they are
calling under if you eat under 10 or 15
grams of carbohydrates a day with
unrestricted protein and restrictive
calories and restricted liquids and this
is what sets the modified Atkins version
of the ketogenic diet apart from the one
to four ratio classical ketogenic diet
and this is if you are looking for the
ketogenic diet especially for seizure
control you can look on PubMed and
search modified Adkins version and
you’ll see that it’s a lot less
restrictive but it has been studied for
seizure control and it is effective not
only is it effective for seizure control
it’s also effective for the other
reasons people do the ketogenic diet
which is anxiety depression pretty much
any cognitive or neurological condition
often responds but not always to the
ketogenic diet and then weight loss is a
big one and so modified Atkins version
if you see side effects associated with
the ketogenic diet and if your doctor
talks about side effects associated with
the ketogenic diet go ahead and instead
of telling them you’re on the ketogenic
diet tell them you’re on the modified
Atkins version or the modified modified
Atkins diet and this is something that a
lot more of the medical perception
profession is accepting of just because
if you do a quick search for side
effects of the keto diet you see kidney
problems you see growth restriction in
children and both of those we obviously
don’t want to have but there is
literature to suggest the modified
Atkins version of the ketogenic diet is
much more well accepted by people both
physically it also keeps you in ketosis
so you get all those awesome health
benefits and it is gonna probably be
more accepted by your doctor so thanks
for joining me if you want to see kind
of what to do for this modified Adkins
version of the k2
my cue to family class definitely covers
that and really all you have to do is
keep your carb limit under 10 or 15 a
day kind of whatever is your personal
needs for stayin in ketosis and in our
keto family class we have lots of keto
family friendly foods that I would love
