John Freeman MD with The Ketogenic Diet: A Treatment for Children and Others with Epilepsy

Sometimes called the miracle diet, the ketogenic diet has helped doctors treat difficult-to-control epileptic seizures in thousands of children. Coauthored by two respected Johns Hopkins neurologists, The Ketogenic Diet continues to be the definitive guide for parents, physicians, and dieticians wanting to implement this strict diet. This fourth edition is extensively updated to reflect current advances in understanding how the diet works, how it should be used, and the future role of the diet as a treatment. The best-seller also includes sample meal plans, a food database, a section on how the Atkins and modified ketogenic diet can be used as alternative diets to control epilepsy, and much more.
