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.

    Does keto make you lose fat faster?

    I have a friend that does cutting and bulking phases, and he told me that it's really hard to lose fat on diets that have more than 5-10% carbs and if you want to lose fat, you will do it much faster in ketosis. Is is this true?

    Do I dare try to answer this? It might be true depending on how you respond, follow the diet, train and handle carbs. Overall caloric intake (cal in vs cal out) will have some play. But, if your asking if dropping below 5-10% carbs and merely getting yourself into 'keto' will make you cut, then no. Do your research and read up before trying is my best advice.

    Keto will cause your body to primarily burn fat for fuel. I guess this makes it easier to lose fat, but not sure whether it guarantees losing fat faster. Several variables like fat %, calorie deficit and genetics come into it.
