The Ketogenic Diet
The Ketogenic Diet was developed in 1924 by Dr. Russell Wilder at the Mayo Clinic as a treatment for epilepsy. It was very popular in the 1920s and 1930s until the introduction of anticonvulsant medications. However, it is still utilized as a means of therapy for those who have a pharmacological resistance to epilepsy.
It is a high fat, low carbohydrate diet which induces a state that mimics carbohydrate starvation. By almost completely eliminating carbohydrates from the diet, the body resorts to burning fat and using ketone bodies as an energy source.
