Just Read this thread after talking with one of my church members yesterday and I was kind of inspired by his sucess. Hes not epileptic he just was extolling the benefits of living raw that have been mentioned here. I have intractable epilepsy and have been on Atkins Mad and LGIT and while all three have worked. KEto the best when I was in my early teens. The MAD is too hard to self manage and with the LGIT I am still consuming breads so I am not making any ketones anyways and I am still having partials. Albeit They are less instense but still happen. I think what happens with me is when my BS spikes or drops radically I have an issue. I'm not diabetic and we don't have a history of that in our family but I do feel lethargic and unmotivated all the time and just very blah. So I think I might want to give this a go. One question I have though I can you still drink alcohol? I am a big fan of a pint of guiness or stout or a glass of wine or the occasional shot of whiskey in tea. Which leads me to another question. What about Honey or molasses? Can you consume either of these things? How about caffiene? I live in PA dutch country so getting away from meat is really hard to do up here as most of the local culture is centered around consuming beef and pork and heavy carbs like potato filling or sweets like stickybuns. Can you consume caffiene on this diet? I currently only drink herbal tea now and decaf black tea. Over this past summer I was making herbal tea from Rosemary and Sage and fresh mint from my aunts garden and the detox effects where amazing and it was a naturally sleep aid and made me feel so good. So in this diet all you can eat is Fruit and veggies and raw nuts correct? So No bread or grains right? Sorry for all the questions but I'm really curious and I am sick of having partials and feeling generally crappy all the time.
