Hi there,

Although I (now) know what a Ketogenic diet is, I cant say that I have heard of anyone using it so I am not sure of its effectiveness. I would think that (in my opinion) any diet that uses a 4:1 ratio of fat to protein cannot be good for the cardiovascular system. I am wondering if anyone on the Cardiovascular Forum has heard of it?

Hiya,

I have asked some of the other moderators (as we used to have an ADHD forum) and have got this link for you: http://www.webmd.com/epilepsy/guide/ketogenic-diet Hopefully it will be of some use to you
