erinmarie Resurrecting this thread... I have just read a couple scholarly articles that suggest a diet composed of 60-80% fat with the remainder speed equally between proton and carbs can control both epilepsy and bipolar effectively. Incidentally, my moods have been stable ever since beginning LC. The two exceptions involved the consumption of excess carbs- and not a whole lot- but enough combined with alcohol. As simple as a breaded chicken strip full carb beer and a couple fries. Weird, but I have found enough science on the subject to understand this. Not sure how living on such a strict ketogenic diet is sustainable- though there is suggestion following Atkins alleviates symptoms as well. Just less effectively. Sigh. I'm feeling run down and was ready to start adding a few carbs back in . Guess not
Do you mind sharing where you found this. I read a blog not long ago that stated this woe also helped with Alzheimer disease. I could lean toward being mostly vegetarian....but this makes me think....

Thanks,
Anna

Just wanted to add my two cents in here...

I was diagnosed as bipolar when I was a teen. Currently I have other diagnoses as well. But my pysch doc is the one who suggested the Atkins diet because I had gained so much weight from all my meds. Just like with any other med, there may be certain items you need to adjust or limit depending on the med you take. But your woe can also improve your symptoms. If your pysch doc is not willing to work with your decision of a LC diet, I would ask specific questions about what foods he believes interacts badly with your meds. If he can't answer that question with proven research, I suggest looking for a new doc.

Thanks for all the response.

I do not eat any gluten. It gives me terrible headaches.

I have heard of it. I do think grains are not good. Thanks.

mjgh06 thanks for your 2 cents. I think that is great that your dr. recomended this woe. I don't think many drs tie food/mood and all that together. Glad you found someone good.
