About Fighting Back With Fat: Written by two mothers who have children on the Ketogenic diet, Fighting Back with Fat provides essential information to educate parents on every aspect of diet therapy, as well as giving counsel for parents navigating the emotional minefields that often come with attempting Ketogenic diets. Common stress factors such as fear of failure, hyper-responsibility, dealing effectively with a child’s non-compliance, and educating non-supportive relatives, friends and peers, are all addressed in heart-to-heart frankness from mothers who have covered the territory personally.
