Summary

Written by three mothers who have children on the Ketogenic diet, Fighting Back with Fat provides essential information to educate parents on every aspect of diet therapy, as well as giving counsel for parents navigating the emotional minefields that often come with attempting Ketogenic diets. Common stress factors such as fear of failure, hyper-responsibility, dealing effectively with a child’s non-compliance, and educating non-supportive relatives, friends and peers, are all addressed in heart-to-heart frankness from mothers who have covered the territory personally. Fighting Back with Fat guides the reader through the Ketogenic Diet, Modified Atkins Diet and The Low Glycemic Index Treatment intrepidly discussing the struggles and emotional bombshells that come with diet therapy. The authors include first-person accounts of the successes and trails of other families as well as a rare glimpse of what kids think of the diets, in their own words. Finally the book closes with the KetoCalculator 101, with tips and advice from the Charlie Foundation’s Beth Zupec-Kania, RD, CD, the Keto Calculator’s creator and moderator and an extensive recipe section offering simple, delicious recipes organized by age group, from infants to adults, each with “Keto Bites,” fun food facts or practical advice that correspond to each recipe.

Author Biography

Erin Whitmer, who has an MFA in creative writing and is a former contributor to National Geographic Kids magazine, has used her blog NoahsRoad.com as a way to empower herself since her son suffered a traumatic brain injury nearly three years ago at the age of four months. Jeanne Riether lives in China and co-founded and directs the Healing Young Hearts Project (healingyounghearts.org) by helping young children build resilience in this challenging world. With little support, she started her teenage son, Jordan, on the Modified Atkins Diet. He is now seizure-free.
