  1. Scientific studies now prove that compared to other diets, low-carb or keto diets are often more effective for weight loss, and for improving certain health markers.

    This has been demonstrated in several meta-analyses of high-quality studies, for example this one:

    The British Journal of Nutrition 2016: Effects of low-carbohydrate diets v. low-fat diets on body weight and cardiovascular risk factors: a meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials [strong evidence] Learn more

    Here are two selected high-quality studies (RCTs) demonstrating this:

    New England Journal of Medicine 2008: Weight loss with a low-carbohydrate, mediterranean, or low-fat diet [moderate evidence]

    Annals of Internal Medicine 2014: Effects of low-carbohydrate and low-fat diets: a randomized trial [moderate evidence]
