The Ketogenic Calculator is a simple on the go solution for those looking to calculate the Ketogenic Ratio of Foods, Recipes and Restaurant Meals. We hope you enjoy it!The Ketogenic Diet is a high-fat, adequate protein, low carbohydrate diet that in medicine is used primarily to treat difficult-to-control (refractory) epilepsy in children and has become very popular amongst dieters. The diet forces the body to burn fats rather than carbohydrates. Normally, the carbohydrates contained in food are converted into glucose, which is then transported around the body and is particularly important in fuelling brain function. However, if there is very little carbohydrate in the diet, the liver converts fat into fatty acids and ketone bodies. The ketone bodies pass into the brain and replace glucose as an energy source. An elevated level of ketone bodies in the blood, a state known as ketosis, leads to a reduction in the frequency of epileptic seizures and weight loss for those looking to reduce weight.This diet contains a 4:1 ratio by weight of fat to combined protein and carbohydrate. This is achieved by excluding high carbohydrate foods such as starchy fruits and vegetables, bread, pasta, grains and sugar, while increasing the consumption of foods high in fat such as cream and butter.Try it today!
