How to Calculate for Ketogenic Diet Cancer
According to Elaine Cantin, author of The Cantin Ketogenic Diet for Cancer, Type I & II Diabetes, Epilepsy and Other Ailments, to be considered ketogenic, a dish or food must carry a ratio of Fat plus Protein : Carbohydrates of 3:1. Elaine recommends that all your intake of fat and protein to carbohydrates should be in the range of 3-5 : 1.

76g + 18g = 94 g : 16 g
Fat + Protein of 5.875 : Carbohydrate of 1
