AN EXAMPLE OF A KETOGENIC MENU

The following is found at Ketogenic Diet Resource:

Here are a few examples of a daily ketogenic diet menu. As you can see, it comes down to eating controlled portions of meat, as much fat as you like, and low carb veggies. Any hunger in between meals can be handled with low carb, high fat foods like celery with cream cheese, or an slice of cheese, or a handful of macadamia nuts.

I've analyzed the entire Day 1 menu and included the results in the graphic on the right. The protein grams are a little high but at that calorie intake, the percentage of protein in relation to the percentage of fat intake is perfect.
Menu Analysis

Day 1 Menu

Breakfast

  • 2 eggs, fried in butter
  • 1 ounce of chopped onion, or other low carb vegetable
  • 1 oz of full fat cheese
  • 4 slices bacon
  • coffee with 1 oz heavy cream

Lunch

  • 3 cups of salad greens
  • 6 oz chicken breast strips, cooked in butter or olive oil
  • 4 T high fat, low carb salad dressing
  • 1 ounce of full fat cheese
  • 1 celery stalk with 1 oz cream cheese
  • water or unsweetened flavored sparkling water or other unsweetened beverage

Dinner

  • 6 oz grilled or pan fried steak
  • mushrooms sauteed in butter
  • broccoli or other low carb vegetable
  • water or unsweetened flavored sparkling water or other unsweetened beverage
  • coffee with heavy cream

From me:  I see that this day comes out to 2600 calories, which is pretty high for a normal sized person.  I would recommend cutting down the protein, which would make the percentage of fat a little bit higher.  I, for one, would gain a ton of weight eating all that protein!

  1. I think that earlier detection of Alzheimer's Disease will be of great benefit to the aging population.Not only will early treatment help slow down the illness, but a lot can be learned about prevention.The elderly is a large group of people who have a lot to offer. I am very pleased to hear about any kind of research being done in this needed area.

  2. This is a great write up, I was also a victim, having Alzheimer's disease for many years. My journey and diagnosis with Alzheimer's disease began when I was 58 years old. My medical condition was heart broken. The first thing I did was get myself informed. I was subjected to different medications including Donepezil, galantamine, by my doctors for treatment without the assurance of having a positive improvement. Despite my visit to several doctors my health wasn't getting better. Also I keep thinking there has to be another alternative to address this, using herbal remedy, this information reinforced my original gut feelings that I should not give up. I decided to look for another option to help my condition. I’ve made many lifelong friends when I was looking for a natural cure for my ailment. To say it gets better is an understatement. I find hope in the darkest of days when I saw a testimony of people talking about Dr. Charanjit's herbal product. I started having series of thoughts, thereafter I ordered his product and started using it, to give the Alzheimer's disease an aggressive approach, the symptoms progressively got better.
    Luckily, everything seemed to be okay after a few weeks of starting the herbs, this was a pleasant surprise. I promised myself that I would stay strong. You sit living in fear of the reality what you may face, never really knowing what will happen until it does. I am indebted and decided to always share my experience.
