Different nutritional approaches
Top Diet for the Treatment of Epilepsy: Ketogenic Diet!
The ketogenic diet, popularly known as the "keto" diet, is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet that aims to induce a state of ketosis in the body. In this state, the body burns fat for energy instead of carbohydrates, which leads to weight loss and improved health indicators.
The Ketogenic diet, which has recently become very popular for weight loss, dates back to the 1920s. It was introduced in the 1920s for the treatment of epilepsy and has long been recognized as a successful dietary approach. In addition to epilepsy, its positive effects are being investigated for many diseases such as cancer, diabetes and obesity. However, the health effects of following this diet regularly in the long term are still a matter of debate. It is very important to apply this type of diet, which can create a lot of burden on the liver and kidneys, under the control of a dietician with a doctor's advice.
So, what is this Ketogenic diet in essence? This type of diet, which is very rich in fats and low in carbohydrates, is a diet that aims to mimic the effect of hunger on the body. The goal is to allow the body to use fat as a primary energy source instead of glucose. Typically, it is a nutrition plan that contains about 70% fat, 20% protein and 10% carbohydrates. The goal of this way of nutrition is to direct the body to burn fat through the metabolic change that occurs when carbohydrate intake is reduced.
If, after consultation with your doctor, you are advised that ketogenic diet is suitable for you, Fit Brokoli will guide you safely with its expert dietitians.
According to the Harvard School of Public Health and the American Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the following people should avoid this diet:
  1. Those who use insulin
  2. Those with pancreatitis, hypertension problems
  3. Those with liver and kidney problems
  4. Those with diseases related to fat metabolism
  5. Those with primary carnitine deficiency
  6. Pregnant and lactating women
  7. Seniors
  8. Children and adolescents (except epilepsy patients)

Hello Bro. We started a healthy life journey with you from March 2021. When I saw how easily I survived Covid, I understood once again that my immune system was strengthened with the suggestions you gave. Thank you BRO for your suggestions.
I have been using Fit Brokoli since the beginning of October. I learned a lot from the dietitian I consulted. I have been consulting with the same dietitian since the beginning. I am very happy to receive advice from him according to my needs. Since I am breastfeeding, we follow a diet suitable for this situation. Fit Brokoli also provides additional information for my baby. I am very happy with it. I decide how often I want to communicate. My dietitian reminds me if I should and also I'm able to consult with them whenever I need. It's a nutrition app I often recommend to my friends. Thanks.
By the way, I had a blood test today and found out that my liver enzymes were back to normal. I can't even remember the last time it was within normal limits. We managed to get it under complete control in 6 weeks. Many thanks for all your suggestions and help. I also uploaded my result to the system.

The program we made with Fit Brokoli and instant meal-based follow-up via Whatsapp made my diet much easier. The diet program is both very flexible and it's very useful to be able to communicate instantly. In this way, diet tracking was very efficient. Since we can constantly revise the program, stretch it and create instant alternatives, I have never stopped following or tired of the diet. I also started excersising. As I started to lose weight, my motivation increased. Because both feeling physical weight loss and gaining fitness with sports increased my self-confidence. I am 93 kilograms now. I'm very close to reaching my goal. Most importantly, I did not get tired of the diet. I don't want the diet to end as soon as possible and attack the food. Endless thanks to Fit Brokoli for his support in this process.
The number of steps I take daily is increasing day by day. I had a little difficulty in the beginning because I had a hernia in my back. I can walk more because of you. Most importantly, I lose weight in a healthy way. I couldn't wake up in the morning, but now I wake up easily. So glad to have you Fit Brokoli!

In this e-mail, I would like to talk about my short journey with Fit Brokoli and thank first my own Bro and then the whole Fit Brokoli family. I started on the diet on 18.02.2021 with about 90 kilos and I am currently 77 kilos. I think I am one of the best examples of both slow and permanent weight loss. In this process, my Bro has always supported me and answered all my questions. He never let me lose motivation and for the first time I was able to follow a diet for so long. I am calling out to my Bro from here, I will not give up on you easily from now on.
My doctor told me that I had depleted my iron stores. 'I wanted to check after 3 surgeries, you have lost perfectly healthy weight, you are not tired. I congratulate both you and your dietitian.' they said.

I have been working with my nutrition coach remotely through the Fit Brokoli app for about 1 year. I met this very nice app thanks to the cooperation that started with our corporate agreement. I am very pleased to work with my dear Bro, who helps me lose weight and adopt eating habits that will maintain my weight by providing me with a special diet list. I received instant support by writing whenever I wanted, and I also learned new things with the tips provided to me. In summary, improving my eating habits in this direction has made me fitter, more motivated and more vibrant. I would like to thank him. I shared my satisfaction with the people around me and recommended the app. They were also very pleased. I always felt that there was a real person on the other end. Thanks to Bro for his constant follow-up and guidance.
