Interesting news coming through today on the Ketogenic Diet.


Modified Atkins Diet for Seizures Ketogenic Diet

Evan Kleiman of KCRW's Good Food

I am a huge fan of this show and listen to it religiously (ironically when I exercise).  Her stories showcase a plethora of all things food.  Last week I was thrilled to hear, as I was walking up a steep hill, this segment as I feel that a push of media coverage will make the Ketogenic or Modified Atkins Diet more mainstream.  A big Thank You to Evan Kleiman for broadcasting this on her June 4th, 2011 show.

Evan Kleiman hosts Good Food on 89.9 KCRW (Los Angeles) and  She is a noted cookbook author and owner/chef of Angeli Caffe on Melrose in Los Angeles.

Hi everyone.  I am passing the following information along for a web event with Dr. Eric Kossoff.  I hope that you will be able to participate.  It should be very informative.
