Speed Keto For Weight Loss: Does It Work?

If you’ve heard about it, encountered people who are trying it or actually tried it, then there is no doubt that the game has received incredible heights alongside massive success. And while it received lots of initial prize, later analysis and research showed that it’s not all that sustainable for the long haul and can be quite hard to follow.

Well, now research revealed that there’s a new diet called the Speed Keto. True to its name, the new diet is also low-carb and high-fat and promises to double what the original keto diet first offered. And the thing is, even scientists think that this time, this type of keto diet might work.

Just as its name implies, speed keto is a combination of the traditional keto diet along with some intermittent fasting, which is a diet strategy that involves alternating between periods of either fasting or eating. One of its most common styles is the 16:8 method, where you are supposed to fast for 16 hours and then eat during the following 8-hour period.

However, with speed keto, the goal is to diet down to only one meal per day, which also has to fit in with the guidelines of low-carb and high-fat. The goal of doing this is to reach ketosis, which is a state where your body shifts to using your fat stores for energy that then results in, of course, weight loss.

I think keto and 'Speed Keto' diets will result in weight loss. Any time food is restricted and a calorie deficit occurs, so will weight loss, and when your eating window is smaller, you are more likely to consume less calories,” Hillary Cecere, who is a registered dietitian at Eat Clean Bro, said.

However, she still thinks this way of eating is not healthy at all because weight gain will happen once it’s no longer being utilized. As such, it’s a diet not for longevity but only for weight loss.

It does, however, work. Nonetheless, while it does, health experts believe that there are other healthier and sustainable ways to lose weight.
