Weight loss is on the minds of many Britons and slimmers will usually need to overhaul their lifestyles to achieve their goals. Looking to those who have lost weight can be a great way to get inspiration on which diet and exercise plans will work. The Reddit user, “lizabev”, managed to drop 4st 6lb by following a keto diet plan. She followed the low carb and high fat keto diet plan to shape up in less than a year.
Posting pictures of her before and after losing weight, the Reddit user mentioned she is 29-years-old and 5ft 5in.
With the starting weight of 15st 10lb, “lizabev” managed to slim down to a much healthier 11st 6lb.
In the post, the social media user explained it was a low carb diet plan that helped her change her life.
She said: “I’ve been doing Keto for so long now that it’s become the easiest lifestyle change I’ve ever made!
“I’m so proud of myself and I’m so happy to walk passed mirrors now!”
Other Reddit users praised her and one commented: “Great job! You look amazing!!!”
Another said: “Your body must like keto, even your skin looks better.”
What is the keto diet?
The keto, or ketogenic diet, is a high fat plan which is low in carbs and includes foods with a moderate protein content.
Many on the plan will eat less than 25 grams net carbs a day in order for their body to enter the fat burning state called ketosis.
When the body enters into ketosis, it is thought to burn more fat and help them get in shape quickly.
On the plan, slimmers can fill up on foods including meats, fish, eggs, dairy, nuts and non-starchy vegetables.
