There have been a couple of case studies and that's it.

I find it interesting that many bipolar meds started out as anti-epilepsy meds and ketogenic diets are used for epilepsy. But there's not a lot of data on it.

Glad to hear you are doing better Lyle! I've struggled with Depression as well as it is a major pain.

I've noticed a change in your writing, at least with update 5. Seems much more upbeat. Glad to see it.

From what I gleaned for helping with depression:
1) Vitamin D + multi
2) Exercise
3) Diet
4) Meds
5) Support Groups/Support structure
6) Proper sleep
7) Socialization

Anything else you or anyone else would recommend?

this would be my recommendation also.

heres what ive notice, which is how i stumbled upon the ketogenic for BPD. over the last several weeks, ive shifted to more carbs in my diet, over that time, my attitude has changed, being on the verge of snapping, which would not be good for me or those around me. Just last night i had serious thoughts about violence towards myself first, and then towards others. and then i was calm and laughing. today Im agitated again. this is not who i am or how i want to be. Ive never thought it could be the carbs in my diet until i read about the ketogenic diet possibly helping with BPD. Do you think it would be worth a shot to get into a ketogenic state and see if things change?

EDIT: i know youre not a doctor, and your opinion will not be taken as advice from a doctor.

here is some food for thought...

I recently had an off-the-cuff conversation with a local dietician and our conversation wandered into the diet-mind topic. she has a theory and is currently trying to fund some trial on the gut-brain link of diet and behaviour.

Hi Lyle. How did you find the motivation/discipline to be able to put out more articles and books?

Is it just a matter of making the "willpower muscle" stronger?

Get to 10% bodyfat first while lifting weights heavy 3x a week with reduced volume. Two weeks maintenance. Bulk up slowly (1 lb weight gain per week max), focus on getting stronger, measure body composition changes often.

When I want to write, it doesn't take any willpower. It is also effectively my job.
