Recently, Diet Doctor site has been promoting higher protein, low-carb options to help maximize weight loss, prevent stalls, and improve body composition by reducing body fat.
But some people might want to stick to a low-carb keto diet that focuses on higher fat and moderate protein.
Is that you?
If you suffer from frequent migraines or cluster headaches, for example, you might want to keep eating a traditional higher fat keto diet to keep your headaches at bay.
Diet Doctor site has a guide on ketogenic diets for migraines and cluster headaches which explains, that their causes are not completely known. But it is thought that, like epilepsy, inflammation, chemical imbalance, and brain energy deficits may be at play.
Strong evidence has existed for more than a century that high-fat keto diets can help reduce the frequency and intensity of epileptic seizures.
Recently, keto diets are being researched to see whether they can have similar results with migraines and cluster headaches. Anecdotal evidence is also growing that a high-fat keto diet can reduce headache frequency.
So if headache treatment or neurological improvements are at the top of your health goal list, you may want to read the migraine and cluster headache guide to determine if a low-carb, higher-fat keto approach is right for you.
All the best Jan
