            6 0 The [ketogenic] diet appears to maintain its efficacy in humans when provided continuously for several years. Interestingly, benefits may be seen long term even when the diet is discontinued after only a few months of use, suggesting neuroprotective effects. Kossoff, E.H. & Rho, J.M. Neurotherapeutics (2009) 6: 406. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.nurt.2009.01.005

                                Saying “Do The Research” is ineffective

                                • 1If it is a contentious enough issue for you to say "do the research" then there are probably many resources proving both sides of the debate. Guess which one I will believe.
                                • 1It takes a significant amount of time to find the research
                                • 1You opponent has most likely seen enough to form an opinion and they think more research would change their mind.

                                • 1If you are not willing to supply evidence then it appears that it is not important to you which gives the impression that your research may not have been that thorough.

                                • Take the time to find a good piece of evidence to share.
                                • If you are unwilling to take the time to provide evidence then give me a resource that you trust that I can look it up on.
                                • If you don’t have time to give any specifics then admit it is not that important to you and end the conversation.
