The ketogenic diet is an individually calculated restricting diet that should only be administered under the care of physicians experienced with the diet. The amount of fat to non-fat (in gram, not in calories) is expressed as a ratio, e.g. 3:1 :
3 : 1 3 gram fat : 1 gram (protein + carbohydrates)
The ratio should be strictly adhered to in every meal. Adequate protein needs to be provided for sufficient growth. Every food item needs to be weighed and calculated into the meal plan. The dieticians will help to select and calculate the ketogenic meals.
