So it’s been a while since I started the Swank Diet, and I can already tell a difference. Unfortunately, it’s a negative difference: severe increase in seizures.
This is hella lame, because it also had a few great positives: I’ve been losing weight, enjoying being creative in the kitchen, and it’s helped me make some new friends!
So – why am I sure that it’s the diet?
Because my seizure doctor and I had a long talk about the Ketogenic diet for people with Epilepsy, which is awful close to the Atkins diet – or almost the OPPOSITE of the Swank Diet.
We concluded that it probably wasn’t a good thing for me to try to control my seizures with diet.
But today, I broke the Swank Diet. I had a cheeseburger and fries. I went, within an hour, from having seizures every 5 to 10 minutes, to being seizure free for 3 and a half hours.
My MBE practice question scores… they also jumped up 5%. I finished at 68% tonight.
Well, at least it’s that cut and dry. 🙂 If only the rest of my meds showed me that quickly that they worked well! 🙂
