    keto diet is the high fat and protein diet correct?
    how old are you?

    in my opinion before putting her on a diet like that i would get her to get a dr. appointment,check thyroid function and blood work to see if a problem with her metabolism.
    after that talk to dr about a diet
    at her age you have to be very careful as bodyand mind is still growing...a diet is a good idea except dont call it a "diet". diets cause yoyo weight gains,loose a bunch and gain it back-- change her way of eating and living..make it a lifestyle of well balanced foods,cutting out simple sugars and have her do cardio.
    you never mentioned if she works out or does cardio also never mentioned her eating habbits now

    start simple,a well balanced diet with cardio and light weight training--cutting out simple sugars--and remember you want fat loss not just weight loss

    any change in diet or lifestyle can cause weight loss,do this till it quits producing results(body gets used to it) before considering any questionable options

    im all for the keto diet its great... but make sure your sister can supress those cravings i know my little sister who eats shit food nonstop could never go on keto.... other than that as long as she follows the diet, and gets plenty of exercise, she should be fine...btw since your sister does not workout (im assuming), you might want to put her on the atkins diet instead of keto (its pretty much the same thing, but atkins was designed more for sedentary people)

    She too young! and my only assumption is that the results of the keto might aggrave a teenager acne!!!!!

    im 25, popping acne like on a 10 000mg of test a day cycle! damn it!!!!!

    believe me its bad!

    also, the side effects would be not really nice
    bad breath
    alway going to bathroom

    try to teach her a good basic and exercise
