My 15 year old son is a big boy, about 6-1. As of June 20, 2016 he weighed 233 lbs, and he was carrying some excess weight that he wanted to lose. He loved eating all the usual carb-rich foods like pizza, chips, and sugary soft drinks.
He decided he wanted to do the keto diet along with me and his mom, so on June 20 he got on board with us, ditched the carbs, and started eating what we were eating. We check his weight every Monday morning to see how things are going.
Here is his progress so far. The first week usually shows the greatest weight loss as some of this is water.

Aside from the weight loss he is feeling much more energetic. We can tell from his behavior too—he is just happier and more animated than he was before. He also told us that he feels awake more quickly when he gets up in the morning. It used to take him a while before he would talk to anyone in the morning.
This is the spreadsheet where we enter the data every Monday morning.
