Default Heavy Cream, Bacon and Hot Dog Diet is Life Saving!

I watched an ABC News clip last night about the Ketogenic diet to treat childhood epilepsy.

One child was on the diet and after a year not only became completely cured, but he was able to go back to a normal diet afterwards. It doesn't work for all epilepsy sufferers, but the amount it does work for is amazing.

I found this to be highly interesting, so I thought I would share.

It makes total sense because the body doesn't have that ready supply of carbs. And I doubt any kid would complain that he has to eat hot dogs and bacon!

Ugh, I totally get the low-carb, high-fat thing, but should the meat they're consuming really be hot dogs? The vast majority of hot dogs are full of artificial crap - fillers, preservatives, chemicals and "flavourings". Why not natural grain/grass-fed beef or pork? Ya know, REAL meat?

On a random side note, the children's book When You Reach Me by Rebecca Stead deals with an epileptic character and her "special" (ie. ketogenic) diet in a beautiful, sensitive, positive way. Awesome book!

Actually, a lot of studies show hot dogs are not good for epileptics because of the nitrates in them. My sister has been epileptic for most of her life.
