Ketogenic Program

Tailored to suit you

This is a low carbohydrate, high fat program following the principles of a well formulated ketogenic diet tailored to individual requirements.

We provide support to achieve a ketogenic state with education and advice with regular visits which include regular measurement of metabolic markers. These will enable us to monitor your progress.

Benefits of the diet:

  • Improve metabolic health
  • Reduce the risk of heart disease
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Reverse, reduce or prevent type 2 diabetes
  • Reverse fatty liver disease
  • Reduce the risk of dementia
  • Increase lifespan
  • Better manage polycystic ovary disease
  • Reduce inflammatory disease such as rheumatoid arthritis and inflammatory bowel disease.

By definition a well formulated ketogenic diet*:

  • Sustains nutritional ketosis
  • Maintains or improves lean body mass and performance
  • Effective electrolyte, mineral and hydration management
  • Fat provides majority of dietary energy in all phases
  • Counting calories is not necessary for success
  • Totally or predominantly composed of ‘whole foods’
  • Short-term very low-calorie diets should be avoided until proven effective in long term studies
  • Contraindicated for chronic conditions unless a credible long-term maintenance phase has been demonstrated
  • Ongoing expert medical supervision required for medication management of chronic conditions (e.g., type 2 diabetes, hypertension)    
  • A well-formulated ketogenic diet does not necessarily adhere to traditional dietary guidelines
