They Have the Best Chocolate-Lover Tricks on the Ketogenic Diet

In theory, I know there are people who don’t like chocolate. I have been told they exist. And I respect that choice.

But my chocolate-loving heart really aches for people who like chocolate and can’t eat it freely.

It’s not uncommon for chronic conditions to come with rigid dietary restriction, but for kids who, say, have Glut1 DS and adhere to the ketogenic diet… well, rigid is probably not a strict enough word.

Originally created for those with epilepsy, the eating plan is high in fat and low in carbs. And, of course, Snickers, PayDay, Twix—all your favorite store-bought brands are loaded with sugars.

So chocolate-lovers on a ketogenic diet just have to get creative.

The Charlie Foundation for Ketogenic Therapies makes the ketogenic diet both more accessible and more enjoyable, offering recipes, resources, and information.

Even on a restrictive diet, The Charlie Foundation shows that food can be fun and fulfilling. So go ahead—check out their website and take a bite!
