The Modified Ketogenic Diet (MKD) is a more liberal version of the classic diet, often used when tapering treatment to a less restrictive form (like MAD or LGIT) or when there are barriers to achieving adequate dietary compliance. With a macronutrient ratio between 1:1 and 2:1, the MKD affords more flexibility, which can be beneficial for easing any gastrointestinal discomfort that might be associated with a high-fat intake.
