A panel of leading health experts, including nutritionists and doctors specializing in diabetes, heart health and weight loss, reviewed detailed assessments prepared by U.S. News of each diet. The experts rated each diet in 11 categories, including short- and long-term weight loss, ease of compliance, safety and nutrition. The panelists are medical doctors, registered dietitian nutritionists, nutritional epidemiologists and weight loss researchers who are leaders in their field.
Research suggests that the keto diet can be effective for short-term weight loss, but in the long run, it may not be any better than low-fat diets that allow for more carbs. Nasrallah shares more expertise regarding the keto diet here.
