The program is called Keto. Nutritional Ketosis is essentially reversing a person's metabolism to use energy from fat instead of carbohydrates.

One of the researchers, Doctor Sarah Hallberg said people on the program have had incredible results.

"Although weight loss was not our main goal in the study, at a year our patients lost an average of 12% of their body weight, this is very significant," said Hallberg.

Hallberg wants people to realize type two diabetes can be reversed.
