First of all yes it works, I have personally used Keto 15 times to get my bodyfat below 5%.
WHAT IS A KETOGENIC DIET? The ketogenic diet (often termed keto) is a very low-carb, high-fat diet. When you reduce your carbohydrate intake and increase your fat intake your body will go into a metabolic state called ketosis. In ketosis your body very efficiently burns fat as well as turning fat into ketones in the liver, which also can supply energy. Ketogenic diets are also great for controlling blood sugar while re-sensitizing insulin receptors. One study found that the ketogenic diet improved insulin sensitivity by a whopping 75%!
What Does this Mean for You? The ketogenic diet can boost insulin sensitivity and cause fat loss, leading to drastic improvement for type 2 diabetes and prediabetes.

SUPPLEMENTS FOR A KETOGENIC DIET Minerals: salt and other minerals are important when starting out. This is due to shifts in water and mineral balance. Caffeine can have benefits for energy, fat loss and performance. Creatine provides numerous benefits for health and performance. Creatine can help if you are combining a ketogenic diet with exercise.
In closing we are seeing an explosion in people going on a KETO program. These people are having great success quickly, which human beings need as we are easily discouraged. I believe in using Keto to obtain ideal bodyweight, then shift to a more balanced diet.
