Amazing. The ketogenic diet is just amazing, I never thought food could help control seizures and change the brain’s / body’s activities soooo much!
Chelsea has now been on the keto diet for 5 months and we have begun reducing topomax anti-consultant. She is doing outstanding. Tomorrow I will be in the kitchen for close to 5 hours preparing meals for her dinners and lunches. On the menu is Chicken & Mushroom Casserole, Spag Bol (minus pasta) & Tuna Bake. Everything will be weighed out to the nearest point 1 of a gram. All the hard work is definitely paying off! Below is the recipes I have created and the spag bol that my girlfriend makes for her boy. Chelsea loves it too! I’ve attached the recipes below so people realise how EVERYTHING is weighed and calorie counted!
We have had a very busy month and things are not slowing down for Christmas. More neurologist appointments, off to see the pediatrician and the usual speech therapy appointments, physio, music therapy, ecdp & playgroups. Plus the find times we have at home playing with stuff like rice, jelly, finger painting, outdoors in the sand pit etc. Photos from these activities are on Chelsea’s facebook page.
Chelsea is definitely on a winning streak again, no seizures in the last 2weeks ! Thank you keto diet!
