The present study was designed to evaluate the anticonvulsant effects of a high-fat ketogenic diet (KD) in rats. Animals were maintained on one of four experimental diets: (1) calorie-restricted ketogenic (KCR); (2) calorie-restricted normal (NCR); (3) ad libitum ketogenic (KAL); or (4) ad libitum normal (NAL). The calorie-restricted diets were fed in quantities such that they were calorically equivalent. All animals began diet treatment at age P37 and each was subjected to one of five… CONTINUE READING
