Dr. Berg explains the difference between the Ketogenic Diet and Low Carb Diet. The only difference is that the ketogenic diet recommends a moderate amount of protein and most low carb diets have higher amounts of protein. The problem with higher amounts of protein with certain people especially if there is a liver damage is there is a start of buildup of uric acid and ammonia in the body. Excessive amounts of ammonia could create all sorts of problem in the brain, kidney, problem with gut and this basically is a toxic effect of amino acids.

If the protein is too low, you can get really weak, immune problems, muscle loss, hair loss, collagen loss, saggy skin and receding gums. The common denominator of why the low carb diet and the ketogenic diet is healthy is simply because you are lowering the carbohydrates. It is the high carbohydrate diet that creates the most side effects especially to the eyes, liver, heart, nerve and brain.
