(A) Depriving the body of carbohydrates, commonly found in many fad diets, may aid in the loss of weight, but it can likely lead to ketosis, which results in muscle loss in a process that itself can often account for much observed weight loss. - Depriving the body of carbohydrates is the subject (simple gerund form) modified by commonly found in many fad diets, the word found is inappropriate here because depriving the body.... cant be found in diets but it is a property of such diets. The which modifier modifying ketosis is not clear - ...."muscle loss in a process that itself can..."

(B) Many diets, because they deprive the body of carbohydrates, can likely lead to ketosis—muscle loss occurs accounting for much of the observed weight loss—though they may aid in the loss of weight. - Meaning problem - the description of ketosis separated by dash is not clear in what it means - though they may seems to refer to ketosis or Many diets.

(C) Common in fad diets is the recommendation to deprive the body of carbohydrates, which may aid in weight loss and can likely lead to ketosis, resulting in muscle loss and accounting for much observed weight loss. Meaning Problem

(D) Depriving the body of carbohydrates, a strategy common in fad diets, may aid in weight loss, but such a regimen can likely lead to ketosis, which can cause muscle loss—a result that can often account for much of the observed weight loss. - Correct

(E) When the body is deprived of carbohydrates, which is common to fad diets, weight loss may occur, but it can also lead to ketosis, accounting for much of the observed weight loss. - what is "it" referring to?

there are many errors with each of option choices except D.
For the practical purpose, one most common way to deal with such question is to read the meaning and apply the POE method.
