Here's Exactly How I Lost 50 Pounds Doing The Keto Diet

Of all the places to seek life-changing nutrition advice, I never thought the barber shop would be where I found it. But one day last January, after a couple years of saying to myself, "today's the day I make a change," my barber schooled me on something called keto. Normally, I take things he says with a grain of salt unless they're about hair or owning a business, but this guy could literally be on the cover of Men's Health. He's 6 feet tall, conventionally attractive, and his arms are about five pull-ups away from tearing through his t-shirt. If anyone else had implied that I was looking rough, I would've walked out in a fit of rage, but I decided to hear him out. I should clarify that I was out of shape, but my case wasn't that severe. I hadn't exercised in a few years and basically ate whatever I wanted and however much of it, but I was only about 30 to 40 pounds overweight. My barber went on to explain that this diet, paired with an appropriate exercise routine, allowed him to completely transform his body in less than a year, and all he ate was fatty foods.

    Everyone is different. I just worked out I needed fewer than 30g of carbs a day to lose weight and get good BG numbers. I then used a calculator to determine the optimum amount of protein for me, which was around 65g a day. With those two sorted out as actual grams, I just ate good fats to satiety. The final ratio came out at an F:P:C of around 85:10:5, but it varied day by day according to what I felt like eating each day, although for many months I was meticulous about not going over the 30g of carbs. Sometimes that was as low as 13 or 14.
    I no longer weigh and measure my food, but my fasting glucose and HbA1c are still where I like them to be. My HA1c has been pretty well a horizontal line now for over five years. You'll see my current number in my sig line.
