So what is the keto diet?
The keto diet is a low-carb plan, which aims to put the body into a state of ketosis, when it burn fat – instead of carbs – for energy.
On the diet carbs are limited to 20 to 50 grams per day. Fifty grams of carbs a day equates to three slices of bread.
Explaining how he tackled the diet, the Reddit user wrote: “First I cut all sugars and starches, basically avoided carbohydrates at all costs. I stuck with electrolyte, sodium, potassium, and magnesium supplementation thoroughly from the get-go to help avoid the keto flu at that time, but I kept eating three meals a day or whenever I felt hungry.
“Didn’t worry too much about calories then, just focused on getting into the habit of eating foods to support a ketogenic diet.
“After a month I found that energy levels came back up and I started drinking black coffees for breakfast.
“I resumed sport – played basketball, and I started road cycling 3x a week. Shortly after I worked a lot on strength training and kept a closer eye on calories.”
He claimed the diet had done more than just help him lose weight.
“Changing this way of eating has reduced inflammation in my joints and relieved me of arthritis pain in my hands and feet. It’s amazing,” he wrote.
Another man revealed his weight loss plan, revealing how he lost seven stone.

“I was 263 and hated it. I needed to lose weight so I started with what knowledge I had.”
