I don't think it is something that can be considered complete. "Diet" should be a lifestyle change, not a short-term change. I've never heard of a short-term diet that will prevent the same old results when one goes back to the same old bad habits.

I've only been doing restricted calorie version of Keto for about 9 months. So far:
  • I've lost 150+ pounds (only 250 to go).
  • I haven't used insulin this year (I was using a third of a vial daily last year).
  • My average blood glucose has dropped from 170 to 101.
  • My A1C has dropped from 7.3 to 5.4.
  • I'm not hungry all the time.

My initial goals were based on my height (6'5"), my goal weight (250#), and my sedentary lifestyle. So, 20 grams of net carbs or less, at least 80 grams of protein, and 1200 or fewer calories per day. In reality, I ended up with about 1400 to 1500 calories per day when I was tracking what I ate. But that is still a large calorie deficit. According to a Keto calculator I used, it said my daily calorie expenditure was probably about 4200 calories.

Tracking what I ate showed me I was overdoing some of my favorite high-fat foods -- sausage, bacon, butter, and cheese. My portion sizes were also too large. I will eat as much as I put on the plate, but I've found I'm now satisfied with less on the plate. It's just a lifetime of large portions has skewed my perception of what a plate full of food should be. I need(ed) to retrain my mind and body.

Bad habits.

I was supplementing protein with a protein drink early on, but haven't really needed it lately. I get more fish and seafood now, which have a lower ratio of fat to protein content than most cuts of beef or pork.
