Exactly how the pivot to low-carb, high-fat reduces seizures is not clear. The Standard Ketogenic Diet appears to be the most researched particularly with regard to its ability to help people lose weight and control blood sugar. It typically comprises 70-75% fat, 20% protein and 5-10% carbs. Once you know your estimated daily calorie requirements, you can begin to work out how much of each of the three macros, fat, protein and carbs, you should consume to achieve your goals. The easiest way to do this is by using a keto macro calculator, like the one at the top of this page. Protein is restricted to moderate levels but recommended amounts vary with activity levels. Although highly debated, some keto experts suggest that if you have too much protein the body converts it to glucose which spikes insulin, lowers ketone levels and takes you out of ketosis. Protein can be broken down to glycogen through a process called gluconeogenesis, but current evidence suggests the only macronutrient that will interfere with ketosis is the carbohydrate.
