WARNING: KETOGENIC MEALS AND SNACKS, while usually benign, can produce adverse reactions in some people. Extreme Nutritional Dietary Changes can interact adversely with other supplements and with prescription drugs or can make prescription drugs ineffective or may boost their potency. As with prescribed drugs, long-term effects from KETOGENIC MEALS AND SNACKS (due to high fat content) are often unknown. Women who are pregnant or nursing should NEVER go on a KETOGENIC DIET unless directed by their healthcare providers.
