Our expert says:
Diabetic ketosis can be lethal and qualify as a medical emergency. Therefore, it is definately not an option and I suggest that you consult a doctor and a dietrician for a low calorie diet to loose weight. Your doctor will have to monitor your blood glucose while you are on this diet. Ask your doctor to test your thyroid hormone levels, as this can also account for your weight gain.
Please do not induce a diabetic ketosis, in order to loose weight.
