Words cannot express the gratitude I have for the KetoDietCalculator. When my daughter was only 2 years old she began to have these weird incidents that no one could explain. The paramedics were constantly at my house as I panicked fearing for my young daughter's life as her eyes would daze off and her body goes limp. It took several months for us to get answers. We were told she was having nonconvulsive seizures that lasted up to 45 minutes. We were devastated because the doctors told us she would have epilepsy for life. Through The Charlie Foundation, we found out about the ketogenic diet. With the help of our dietitian and KetoDietCalculator, I made over 700 recipes. I learned how to make good food my child liked. Our daughter no longer has epilepsy; she remains seizure-free and has been off the ketogenic diet for over 3 years.

As a new keto dietitian, it is such a wealth of knowledge and a great amazing database to have! I have been using the Help Line searching for topics about ketogenic diet, supplements, and lab interpretations. I really appreciate all the effort that Beth has put into this, which is such a great database and training materials for new keto dietitian to have. Thank you so much for making this available to us and organizing it! I really appreciate it!

I am so thrilled to have the benefit of KetoDietCalculator (KDC) for implementing precision ketogenic metabolic therapy for epilepsy and numerous other metabolic and neurological conditions. I have used KDC for the past 15 years for hundreds of adult and pediatric patients. KDC takes the guesswork out of macronutrient targets and assists with supplementation goals and meal planning. The KDC Help Line is the most comprehensive KMT resource available-a hidden gem!
