When you want to treat refractory epilepsy in children then a low carbohydrate diet is followed with high fat and adequate protein. This diet burns the fat instead of the carbohydrate. In this low carb diet, ketones are produced in the liver that is used as energy. Therefore the name of the plan is ketogenic. The ketosis menu varies from 2 days to 7 days and even to 30 days.

The 3 Week Plan

Week 1

In breakfast, try and utilise the leftovers. Drink plenty of water and salt intake to be higher to prevent headaches and fatigues. So re-hydrate and recycle your electrolytes at regular intervals.

Breakfast

Start the day 1 of the diet on a weekend so that you can make something to last the whole of the week. So the first week should be kept as simple as possible.

Lunch

Lunch too can be made non-cumbersome with salad and meat in high fat dressings.

Dinner

Dinner should be a combination of leaves like broccoli or spinach and some meat too.

Avoid any dessert in the first couple of weeks.

Week 2

There is a coffee that is recommended made up of butter, coconut oil and some heavy cream.

Breakfast

In case you are not a fan of coffee, try it with tea, but the concoction is bulletproof. The intake of this coffee will lead to more energy and fat loss too. you can even add little sweetner if you so wish.

Lunch

The fats from the morning will keep you feeling full for a long time and you will only feel around 2. But make sure to drink plenty of water.

Dinner

You can have a mix of meats vegetable and fats and can even add some bread too. One added bonus is that dessert is allowed this week. So go ahead and prepare a low-carb dessert.

Week 3

This week you got to skip breakfast and lunch altogether. But keep drinking fluids be it tea. This week you get to experiment more with desert and dinner and can also gorge on snacks and protein laden chicken.

Breakfast

Take either tea or coffee to improve brain function and increase the metabolic rate.

Lunch

Only water.  So the advice would be four litres of water to keep yourself hydrated.

Dinner

The most fantastic time of the day is dinner with lots of food and desserts. Break the fast with a snack and then eat to your satisfaction after 20-30 minutes.
