Restricted Ketogenic Diet for Cancer

Restricted Ketogenic Diet (R-KD) is an important part of our integrative cancer management protocol.  The following is the general principles which should be modified upon each individual cancer patient.

  1. Total calories, 600-1200 calories/day.
  2. ~80% of the total calories from fat (we recommend animal fats, avoid seed oils rich in Omega-6 PUFA fats)
  3. ~10-12% of the total calories from proteins,
  4. ~8% – 10% of the total calories from carbs.  Simply put, avoid all starchy foods such as wheat and rice, potatoes, corns which are high in carbs. Avoid foods and drinks with added glucose or high fructose corn syrup.
