Want proof? Here’s what a meta-analysis of thirteen randomized controlled trials published in the British Journal of Nutrition concluded:[29]

“Individuals assigned to a VLCKD [very low carbohydrate ketogenic diet] achieve a greater weight loss than those assigned to an LFD [low-fat diet] in the long term; hence, a VLCKD may be an alternative tool against obesity.”

In fact, two randomized controlled trials found the keto diet leads to more belly fat loss and produces up to three times as much weight loss as a high-carb, low-fat diet![30-31]

That’s right. Those who followed a keto diet lost more fat while eating tasty foods like bacon, scrambled eggs with hot sauce, BBQ wings, and pork rinds nachos. But why is a keto diet superior for fat loss?
