The ketogenic diet has become increasingly popular with celebrities because of the rapid weight loss that results. The keto diet calls for boosting fat intake, eating moderate amounts of protein, and drastically cutting carbohydrates. In addition to helping celebrities to shed pounds, the ketogenic diet has become known for benefits such as improved energy level and mood, an expert told the publication.

“On a ketogenic diet your entire body switches its fuel supply to run almost entirely on fat,” explained the diet specialist. “It becomes easy to access your fat stores to burn them off.”

Kim Kardashian turned heads with her 75-pound weight loss in 2017, reported the Diet Doctor. Kim’s keto diet consists of high-fat foods such as avocado and bacon; protein such as chicken and fish, and non-starchy vegetables such as lettuce and green beans.

Hollywood Life honored the top celebrity weight loss transformations of 2017, including Melissa McCarthy. After following a low-carb diet, McCarthy shared her enthusiasm about her 75-pound weight loss. Melissa called her weight loss “the best thing” she has “ever done,” sharing that she feels “amazing.” As reported by the Inquisitr, McCarthy followed a four-step process to achieving low-carb diet success.
