Not Losing Weight On Keto Reddit

She Tried The Keto Diet And Dropped More Than 100 Pounds

She Tried The Keto Diet And Dropped More Than 100 Pounds

For many, after years of trying to lose weight without seeing results, it may feel like your only option is to throw your hands up in the air and shout, "I give up!" Well, Reddit user toccobrator proves it's never too late to lose weight; all you need is to find the diet that works for you. Despite being only in her early-40s, she looked years older because of her excess weight. At 245 pounds, she knew she had to make a change. She opted for a keto diet and tried intermittent fasting and eventually she lost more than 100 pounds — 105 to be exact! MUST-SEE: Paula Jones From 'My 600 Lb. Life' Has Kept Off the Weight and She's Never Looked Happier In a Reddit post, she shared her amazing weight loss journey and revealed her diet secrets. "I actually started just doing calorie restriction without specifically pursuing keto, but given the 1200 cal/day restriction, I found that protein-heavy and fatty foods were better "bargains" for the calories in terms of being more filling. Obviously not everyone feels the same way but keto sucked me in :)," she wrote. As happens with lots of people who lose weight in a short amount of time, toccobrator was left with a lot of excess skin. When asked, she got brutally honest about the realities of living with sagging skin, including how her extra rolls caused infections. "I used the best hygiene, the strongest anti-fungals, whatever I could do but the fact is skin folds, if deep enough, are gonna get sweaty and moist and then... well I'd developed a systemic fungal infection, it was so bad. If it was just a matter of vanity I would have lived with the skin folds," she said. Fortunately, her insurance paid for her surgery — "360 belt lipectomy, thigh reduction, the works" —so she was able to have her excess skin removed. MUST-SEE: 12 Continue reading >>

The Diet Trend Reddit Is Obsessed With (and Whether It Will Work For You)

The Diet Trend Reddit Is Obsessed With (and Whether It Will Work For You)

If we know anything about dieting and losing weight it’s that though the method is extremely simple (more calories out than calories in), the execution can be incredibly difficult. So difficult, that on the extreme high end, some studies have shown that 95% of diets fail. This is true in other areas of life, to be sure. What we know we should do for ourselves is simple: exercise every day, complete all the tasks at our jobs, save money instead of spending it, quit smoking or drinking to excess — we know all the right things to do, the knowledge we lack is how to get ourselves to take the right actions. To this end, a community on Reddit has become more and more popular by working through a diet that claims to work not just because it accomplishes the simple goal every diet accomplishes (helping people eat less calories than their body expends, resulting in weight loss) but because it helps people feel satisfied enough with what their eating that they can actually stick to it. It’s called Keto and it’s basically a high fat, low carb diet. What excites most people about this is that it’s a diet you can eat bacon on. Yup. Bacon. Advocates of the diet say that by strictly avoiding carbs (keeping their intake between 0-50g per day), they force the body to burn fat for energy rather than it’s preferred source of energy, glucose. Also, because you are not spiking your insulin levels with carbohydrates, you will crave less food. Some Reddit users have seen big progress using keto, like this girl: And this couple: Many people say the difference between keto and other weight loss strategies they’ve tried is that they’re able to keep up with the diet because of the satisfying meals they can make. For instance, look at this delicious keto meal: And keto calzones And Continue reading >>

I Can't Stop Looking At This Major Weight Loss Gif

I Can't Stop Looking At This Major Weight Loss Gif

Reddit user dignityblows, whose real name is Amanda, has become a bit of an internet sensation because of this GIF that shows her losing a significant amount of weight over the course of a year that is a real WHOA. Good Morning America featured Amanda on their program Wednesday (forcing her to do that horrible walk and look away from the camera made popular by The Bachelor); in the segment, Amanda talked about sticking to a Keto/Paleo diet, her very basic weight loss tips and how it was her eating habits and not exercise that prompted her drastic weight loss, though she writes on Reddit that she's "a little disappointed" about how they categorized her habits: I was very clear during the interview that Keto is a high fat and moderate protein diet, but the voice over said I followed a "high protein" diet. Sigh. I guess the world isn't quite ready for the glorious bacon-fueled truth. The best part of Amanda's GIFed weight loss is when her glasses just disappear ala every makeover in every movie ever. She's added a glasses pic from today to prove that they didn't go far. [Reddit] Continue reading >>

How To Lose Weight On A Keto Diet In 5 Easy Steps (+ 4 Real-life Examples)

How To Lose Weight On A Keto Diet In 5 Easy Steps (+ 4 Real-life Examples)

CLEARLY the “eat less”, “eat low fat”, and “just eat everything in moderation” diets haven’t worked too well for most people. So, if you’re still trying to lose weight and keep it off, then maybe it’s time to try something that’s working for tens of thousands of people right now… The Ketogenic Diet. But is it all too good to be true? Yes, we believe Keto is fantastic for weight loss. We’ve just seen it work for way too many people (check out the success stories below). But it’s also not for everyone. So, in this post, we are giving you the real facts behind all the hype as well as real-life stories of people who have lost a lot of weight on Keto. PLUS, how to get started on Keto to lose weight in 5 EASY Steps. What is the Ketogenic Diet? THE HISTORY: Originally the Ketogenic diet was created as an effective treatment for epileptic children. BUT NOW: More and more people are finding that a Ketogenic diet has tons of benefits, including: a healthy way to lose weight, control blood sugar levels, improve your brain function, and potentially even reverse a myriad of health conditions. How does keto do this? The Keto diet puts your body into a powerful fat-burning metabolic state called nutritional ketosis. NUTRITIONAL KETOSIS: In nutritional ketosis, your body generally uses very few carbohydrates for energy. Instead, it switches to using ketones (which are produced from the breakdown of fats). That’s why the keto diet is often called a fat-burning diet… You can literally be burning your own body fat for energy! (It’s still unclear whether ketosis is the magical factor that makes a Keto diet so effective for weight-loss, but whatever it is, it seems to work!) So, how do we get into this nutritional ketosis state? You can get into nutritional k Continue reading >>

Watch A Woman Lose 88 Pounds In 1 Gif — All Thanks To Bacon?

Watch A Woman Lose 88 Pounds In 1 Gif — All Thanks To Bacon?

When Reddit user Amanda posted pictures of her transformational weight loss, she never expected to become an overnight phenom. But, after an inspired reader translated her progress photos into an oddly mesmerizing GIF, she became just that. Watching it happen in GIF form is pretty amazing, but the thing that really got our attention: the prominent role bacon played in her diet. Over the course of two years, Amanda lost an incredible 88 pounds on a high-fat, medium-protein, low-carb diet — also known as the keto diet. (She also says she was influenced by the paleo diet, a close cousin to keto.) But, what is this oddly named regimen? And could it possibly be right for you? Maybe... Advertisement First off, keto is short for ketogenic, and the diet works by reducing the amount of carbs you put into your body, forcing it to burn up fat reserves in order to power itself. But, you might ask, how does the body shed fat so rapidly when all you’re eating is fat? After all, we’ve had “FAT BAD” drilled into our brains for so long that it seems tough to believe the health benefits of such a high-fat plan. Well, here's how it works. People on keto diets typically focus on fatty meats, leafy greens, veggies, and eggs — but totally cut out sugars, refined grains, and fruit juices. And yes, there are lots of similarities between Paleo and keto diets, but very generally, Paleo diets tend to be extremely protein-focused, while this diet is heavy on fats and medium on protein. The reason a bacon-y, buttery regimen could actually help you shed the weight has to do with how your body uses different kinds of food for energy. When we eat sugar and carbs, our bodies react by producing insulin to help regulate our blood sugar; believers in the keto diet say that insulin both encoura Continue reading >>

How I Fixed The Biggest Ketosis Mistakes

How I Fixed The Biggest Ketosis Mistakes

The ketogenic diet isn’t always as easy as it seems. I tried for a long time, but not until I dove deep into the research and found out how to fix all of the common mistakes was I able to enjoy the full state of ketosis. This article is to help you avoid those same mistakes. Why Try the Ketogenic Diet First, why would you want to even try ketosis? I truly enjoy trying diets and eating methodologies to research what I like and what works for me. I’ve experimented with low-carb diets, high-carb diets, and everything in between, but I’ve never cut them out to the point to achieve ketosis. What’s most exciting about the ketogenic diet to me is that, yes, it’s amazing for weight loss, but it’s not just a “diet.” Ketosis is literally a state of metabolism. You are either in or you’re out. I wanted to see and feel for myself the benefits everyone is talking about from going full Keto. My Keto Coach has a great line that goes like this: I was sold and needed to try this and commit. If you are new to researching ketosis, a quick review of the popular benefits: Mental Clarity [2] Fat Loss [2][3][4] Feeling Full [1][2] Better Sleep [1] Better Mood [1] Better Skin [4] The list goes on and on, including disease and inflammation reduction, better cholesterol, etc. For my purposes I didn’t care about weight loss or fat loss, I just cared about doing the diet the best I could, and to do that, I needed to prepare accordingly. Preparation Stage – Learning the Keto Basics Here is what I did to educate myself and prepare for six weeks of the Ketogenic Diet. I picked a start date and spent $30 at In-N-Out burger on a massive send-off to carbohydrates. A whole other post could be dedicated to the mistakes I made at In-N-Out. After this epic meal, it was officially time Continue reading >>

Weight Loss: Diet Plan Used By Woman To Lose Five Stone In Just Five Months Revealed

Sharing her before and after transformation to Reddit, poster ‘imakebadpuns_’ explained she had lost five stone in the same number of months. At 27 years old and five foot seven inches, this scale of weight loss is an impressive feat. Writing about how she did it, the poster said: “It took me five months to lose the weight and I've been maintaining and focusing on becoming stronger since! “I lost the weight with keto and moderate exercise and have been maintaining with CICO and weight lifting.” I still am pretty restrictive with carbs because I hate feeling hungry and keto foods keep me feeling full longer Her post quickly went viral with hundreds of comments asking for more detail on how she achieved her goals.

Breaking A Weight Loss Plateau

Breaking A Weight Loss Plateau

I know all about how annoying a low carb diet weight loss plateau can be. In 2008, I began to change my eating habits in order to address some serious health problems. I also wanted to lose the excess weight I had accumulated over the years while eating a poor diet full of processed junk food. It took several years and I still struggle with my weight, but then I'm a work in progress. The Most Common Causes of a Weight Loss Plateau Here is my opinion, born of my individual experience, on the most common causes of a weight loss plateau. If you are following a ketogenic diet, and not losing weight, or the weight loss is inconsistent (going down one week and up the next), here are some of the most common causes: Eating more carbohydrate than you think (fruit, nuts, and yogurt are the particular culprits here). I call this carb creep. Eating more calories than your body can handle without storing (this is usually the result of a very high fat intake - for me, too much dairy). You want to be burning your stored fat, not excess fat from your diet. Eating large amounts of low carb foods that elevate insulin. Dairy protein (hard cheeses, yogurt and whey protein in particular), sugar alcohols, and other artificial sweeteners are culprits here. Eating lots of coconut, coconut oil or MCT oil. Coconut oil has a lot of medium chain triglycerides in it. This type of fat can't be stored, so your body has to burn it first. Again, the goal is to burn your stored fat, not fat from your diet. Not exercising in a way that increases insulin sensitivity to the muscles. (The problem is that for people with a broken metabolism, long, slow exercise doesn't work well - it has to be high intensity exercise, which uses all the glycogen stored in the muscles, and makes them more insulin sensitive. T Continue reading >>

Intermittent Fasting On A Keto Diet

Intermittent Fasting On A Keto Diet

Intermittent Fasting, or “IF”, is a relatively new craze that is used as a supplement to your diet. It revolves around the timing of your food intake, and can have some benefits in the long run. There are quite a few people misinformed on fasting, so we’ll clear that up and explain how intermittent fasting can be useful. On your ketogenic journey, it’s important to know that your success is not only dictated by eating enough fat and protein and restricting carbs. When you eat, how often you eat, and how much you eat have a substantial impact on your health and function as well. If your results have plateaued or you are thinking of starting a ketogenic diet, this article will provide you with a way to lose more fat and improve energy levels called intermittent fasting. If you need to learn how to calculate your macros, visit our Keto Calculator. Fasting isn’t required to lose weight on a ketogenic diet. If it doesn’t work for you, then do not force yourself to fast. Restricting yourself unrealistically is pointless – it’s not worth it if it makes you unhappy. There are 2 basic terms we need to understand here first: feeding and fasting. Your body is in a feeding state when you are eating your food, and you are in a fasting state when you are between your meals. The Approach Skipped meals. This is when you skip over a meal to induce extra time of fasting. Usually people choose breakfast, but others prefer to skip lunch. Eating windows. Usually this condenses your entire macronutrient intake between a 4 and 7 hour window. The rest of the time you are in a fasting state. 24-48 hour cleanse. This is where you go into extended fasting periods, and do not eat for 1-2 days. I don’t recommend that you go straight for a 1-2 day fast, but begin by restricting you Continue reading >>

How Quickly Can You Lose Weight?

How Quickly Can You Lose Weight?

Take your average guy or gal that decides they’re committed to finally losing that extra weight that’s crept on over the years. They’re going to eat healthy (primally, of course), start working out, and stop all the nonsense they know to be unhealthy. This might be you. A few days go by, then a week. The scale is budging, but barely. “This is going to take forever! How long is this going to take?” We all want instant results, right? Well, what is realistic? What is safe? What is effective? And what can you expect when you attempt to lose excess body fat and reach your ideal body composition? Everyone knows that slow, gradual weight loss produces the best long-term results and fast weight loss is unsafe and unhealthy. People you know have probably clucked “Oh, you’re losing weight fast now with that low-carb fad diet, but just wait a few weeks and it’ll all come rushing back!” And when you go somewhere like the CDC’s weight loss page, they pat your head for “want[ing] to lose it very quickly” and reassure you that “people who lose weight gradually and steadily are more successful at keeping it off.” It’s become an article of faith that slow and steady weight loss wins the race. But is it actually true? I searched the literature for support of this widely-accepted weight loss truth. If folks like the Center for Disease Control were saying it, there had to be some evidence for it. Right? I came up empty. What little evidence I could find seemed to support the opposite contention: that rapid initial weight loss is associated with better long term weight maintenance than slower weight loss. Just look: A 2000 review concluded that “greater initial weight loss” improves long term weight loss maintenance, even when that weight is lost using ext Continue reading >>

Not Losing Weight On A Low-carb Ketogenic Diet? Don’t Give Up And Read Further

The ketogenic diet is not only known to be one of the most effective weight loss tools, but has proven to have many health benefits. Ketosis is a state at which your body produces ketones in the liver, shifting the body's metabolism away from glucose and towards fat utilization. Unless you can check your blood ketones, using Ketostix is an easy way to detect urinary ketones. It's not the most accurate method, but may be good enough to find out whether you are in ketosis. In some cases, weight loss may be difficult even on a low-carb ketogenic diet and there may be a few possible reasons for weight stalling, which I have listed in this post. If you want to know more about the ketogenic diet and how it can help you lose weight, have a look at my Practical Guide to Keto Diet which is freely available on my website also as PDF. 3 free diet plans to help you kickstart your diet, lose weight and get healthy Recipes, giveaways and exclusive deals delivered directly to your inbox A chance to win the KetoDiet app every week Top Reasons You Are Not Losing Weight on a Keto Diet 1. Carbs are Too High Your carbohydrate intake may be too high. Try to decrease your daily carbs limit. Also try to include coconut oil in your diet. Coconut oil consists of MCTs (Medium chain triglycerides), which are easily digestible, less likely to be stored by your body and are used for immediate energy. MCTs are converted in the liver into ketones, which helps you enter ketosis. If you want to know more about carbs, check out this post. For more about ketones, have a look at this post. 2. Protein is Too High or Too Low Your protein intake may be too high/ low. Protein is the most sating macronutrient and you should include high-quality animal protein in your diet.

Top 15 Reasons You Are Not Losing Weight On A Low-carb Diet

Top 15 Reasons You Are Not Losing Weight On A Low-carb Diet

Weight loss isn’t a linear process. If you weigh yourself every day, then there will be days where the scale goes down, other days where it goes up. It doesn’t mean that the diet isn’t working, as long as the general trend is going downwards. Many people lose a lot of weight in the first week of low-carbing, but it is mostly water weight. Weight loss will slow down significantly after that initial phase. Of course, losing weight is not the same as losing fat. It is possible, especially if you’re new to weight lifting, that you are gaining muscle at the same time that you’re losing fat. To make sure that you’re losing, use something other than just the scale (which is a big, fat liar). Use a measuring tape to measure your waist circumference and have your body fat percentage measured every month or so. Also, take pictures. Take note of how your clothes fit. If you’re looking thinner and your clothes are looser, then you ARE losing fat no matter what the scale says. Bottom Line: Weight loss isn’t linear and there’s a lot more to weight than just body fat. Be patient and use other ways of measuring than just the scale. Some people are more carb sensitive than others. If you’re eating low-carb and your weight starts to plateau, then you may want to cut back on carbs even further. In that case, go under 50 grams of carbs per day. When you go under 50 grams per day then you’re going to have to eliminate most fruits from your diet, although you can have berries in small amounts. If that doesn’t work either, going under 20 grams temporarily can work… eating just protein, healthy fats and leafy green vegetables. To make sure that you’re really eating low-carb, create a free account on Fitday and log your food intake for a while. Bottom Line: If you ar Continue reading >>

The combined effect is clinically proven to not just rapidly burn fat off your physique but as importantly, to flush out all the destructive toxins in your body and increase your metabolism, all without harming your immune system.
