Why was this diet developed?

The ketogenic diet began in 1924 with Dr. Russell Wilder at the prestigious Mayo Clinic. There, Dr. Wilder designed a carbohydrate-restricted diet to treat epilepsy in children, and the research at the time indicated that it was highly effective.

The ketogenic diet is very low carb, high fat and moderate protein diet. It was originally used with patients with epilepsy that did not respond to pharmaceutical drugs.
