Hello, ketogenic diet is not good unless recommended by a dietitian. If you are afraid because of your family history, then you can rather follow a healthy diet which contains high fibre, no processed food, moderate salt. Try taking vegetable in the form of salads (raw) mostly and fruits you can take just as a fruit, fruit chat or fruit salad for a variety. Use less oils in food and avoid fried stuffs. Use refined oils and olive oil. Have food on time and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Hello there.

I can understand your concern.
Ketogenic diet is a diet in which you have to eat only high fat and low , very low carbohydrate diet.
It's a very difficult diet to follow, but it shows good results.
I however, do not recommend it.
Have a proper diet with the help of a dietician and exercise regularly. This will be good for your heart and not ketogenic diet.
Best regards.
Dr. Anil Kumar Jain.
