Otherwise your body will simply slow metabolic rate and you will not feel or perform well and may not lose weight. More lean muscle burns more calories and makes it easier to keep weight off. If you don't build muscle you may add fat when gaining. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I have recently been put on the ketogenic diet for my seizures. My question is are there actual meals I can eat and still follow the diet?

I am not aware there is a recipe book for this diet for adults. Here is a link to some guidelines that may help: https://www.epilepsy.com/learn/treating-seizures-and-epilepsy/dietary-therapies/ketogenic-diet ...Read more
