Comparing common diets: Ketogenic, Paleo, Mediterranean Diets

Today my focus is to understand the difference between the common diets.
Please see the Ketogenic vs. Paleo diagram. You will see that the Paleo and the Ketogenic diets are below the 30 grams of carbohydrate level.Health - Ketogenic vs. Paleo per Dr. Jeff Volek
 
Dr. Tennant* recommends the Mediterranean Diet without the grains and the dairy. Please see the Mediterranean Diet brochure. You may notice that he removes grains from the diet. In my opinion, this could also bring the carbohydrate levels to below 30 grams as well.

Dr. Tennant has been acknowledged by his peers by awarding him the following:

    AMA:  American Medical Association Physician’s Recognition Award

    Philip Corboy Award for contributions to ophthalmology

    Hawaiian Eye Society Award for Excellence

    Pope Benedict:  Order of Saint Sylvester Award for Contributions to Medicine

    Microcurrent Society:  Lifetime Achievement Award

    Top 20 Alternative Doctors in America

    Newsmax Health’s Top 100 Physicians Who Embrace Integrative Medicine

    The Academy of Comprehensive Integrative Medicine:  Lifetime Achievement Award

    World Academy of Neural Therapy According To Huneke:  Scientific Excellence Award

    And others

For me, Mediterranean Diet is like the Ketogenic Diet without the ratio of proteins, fat and carbohydrates to consume daily. Please see the Keto Pyramid.

It seems to me that consuming high fiber vegetables is an excellent way to replace grains.
 
My intention here is for you to have the opportunity to present this information to your doctor if you so wish.
 
I hope this has been helpful as you go on your journey to improved health.
