  • 2. Eat wholesome foods

    A person with epilepsy should eat a diet consisting of whole, natural foods like fruits, vegetables and whole grains. These foods are minimally processed and packed with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that will improve your physical and mental well-being.

  • 3. Consume healthy fats

    Healthy fats found in oily fishes, extra virgin olive oil, nuts and seeds are considered good for people with epilepsy because fats help to absorb important nutrients that aid in the proper functioning of the cells.

  • 4. Drink plenty of water

    People with epilepsy should drink plenty of water because drinking water helps you to concentrate better and helps in better functioning of the body's cells. This lowers the risk of seizures caused by dehydration.

  • 5. Eat protein -rich foods

    Including protein-rich foods into your diet will help build and support muscles, red blood cells, hormones and immune system. Protein can be found in foods like meat, fish, eggs, lentils, milk and cheese.

  • 6. Eat energy-boosting foods

    Most people with epilepsy will feel extremely tired or exhausted due to disrupted sleep because of seizures. So, consume foods that increase your energy levels such as brown rice, oats, peas, beans, nuts, yogurt, apples, pears, berries and broccoli.

  • 7. Enjoy cooked food

    People with epilepsy are recommended to eat cooked food which is much healthier than fried food. You can steam, bake, grill, boil or poach your food.

  • 9. Know what foods you eat

    Research what foods are good and bad for you. Check the food label to see if they are high in calories, fats, salt and sugar. Choose foods which have fewer calories and sugar as they are much healthier. This will help you make clear food choices.
