    Does anyone know whether it's safe to keep going on the Keto diet, even after the desired weigh loss and more has been reached - asking for a relative.

    Your relative now has to tweak his/her diet to stave off more weight loss while still having good readings. Not as easy as it sounds, I'm afraid.

    You might look for a copy of Dr Atkins New Diet Revolution - the one I have is the 2003 edition. There is advice on how to find the right amount of carbs to eat and foods to chose to maintain weight.

    I am always puzzled at the idea of having to tweak and worry about continued weight loss on a permanent keto/low carb high fat regime. Dairy products, coconut oil, animal fat, nuts and flours from them - how to keep losing weight eating this lovely energy-giving stuff? But I guess some people do? Wow! Not me.

    Have they reached their desired weight and are still losing or just well on the way?
    Personally I'll probably do it for life because i feel it has restored my health and well being as well as putting Type 2 into remission.
