No-carbohydrate diet

A no-carbohydrate diet (no-carb diet, zero carb diet) excludes dietary consumption of all carbohydrates (including dietary fiber) and suggests fat as the source of energy with sufficient protein. A no-carbohydrate diet may be ketogenic, which causes the body to go into a state of ketosis, converting dietary fat and body fat. the brain. Some bodily organs and parts of the brain still require glucose, which is tightly regulated by gluconeogenesis or by the conversion of glycerol from the breakdown of triglycerides. A no-carbohydrate diet may be used, but it is not prescriptive of the diet, which, by definition, Read More…

Ketogenic diet

The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, adequate-protein, low-carbohydrate diet that is used primarily in the treatment of epilepsy in children. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, carbohydrates are contained in food glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fueling brain function. However, if there is little carbohydrate in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis, leads to a reduction in the frequency of epileptic seizures. Almost half of children, and young people, with epilepsy who have had some experience in this area, and the effect persists after discontinuing the diet. There is some evidence that the diet may be more effective, and that the strict regimen, such as modified diet, is similarly effective. The most common adverse effect is constipation, affecting about 30% of patients, which has been reduced to less than one year. The original therapeutic diet for pediatric epilepsy provides just enough protein for body growth and repair, and sufficient calories to maintain the correct weight for age and height. The classic therapeutic ketogenic was developed for the treatment of pediatric epilepsy in the 1920s and was widely used in the next decade, but its popularity with the introduction of effective anticonvulsant medications. This classic ketogenic diet contains a 4: 1 ratio by weight of fat to combined protein and carbohydrate. This is achieved by excluding high-carbohydrate starchy foods such as starchy, bread, pasta, grains and sugar, while increasing the consumption of high-fat nuts, cream, and butter. Most dietary fat is made of molecules called long-chain triglycerides (LCTs). However, medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) -made of fatty acids with shorter carbon chains than LCTs-are more ketogenic. A variant of the classic diet known as MCT ketogenic diet uses a form of coconut oil, which is rich in MCTs, to provide around half the calories. A larger proportion of carbohydrate and protein can be consumed, allowing a greater variety of food choices. In the mid-1990s, Hollywood producer Jim Abrahams, whose son’s severe epilepsy was successfully controlled by the diet, created the Charlie Foundation to promote it. Publicity included an appearance on NBC’s Dateline program and … First Do No Harm (1997), made-for-television movie starring Meryl Streep. The foundation is a multicenter research study, the results of which-announced in 1996-marked the beginning of renewed scientific interest in the diet. Possible therapeutic uses for the ketogenic diet have been studied for various neurological disorders in addition to epilepsy: Alzheimer’s Read More…
