In this study researchers will investigate how the ketogenic and Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes diets affect cognition in adults with Alzheimer's disease. The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carbohydrate diet and participants will also take daily supplements. The Therapeutic Lifestyle Changes diet is low in fat and cholesterol; high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains; and moderate in protein. Participants will be randomly assigned to one of the two diets for three months and researchers will measure changes in cognitive performance, including memory and reaction times, using several assessments and tests.
