How to lose weight: Man sheds more than 6st by following this diet

Taking to Reddit, a man has revealed his weight loss transformation on the open forum where he dropped 6.7st in a year.

The user, under the name Fresnogeek, started his journey by switching to the keto diet.

Short for ketogenic diet, the keto diet is a low-carbohydrate, high-fat diet, similar to the Atkins diet.

By following this method, it puts your body in a state of ketosis, which it means it starts using ketone bodies – burning more fat.

“I haven’t tracked them in a while because I was maintaining”

The Reddit user wrote: “Starting out for the first six months it was pretty strict keto 75-20-5.

“I was under 20 net cards a day pretty much the whole time. Now I’m probably 50-40-10 I haven’t tracked them in a while because I was maintaining.”

He then began following the keto diet, which stands for calories-in-calories-out.

His clever shopping and cooking habits made sure he had healthy food to eat throughout the week.

In the post, which secured more than 1.2k upvotes, Fresnogeek added: “I grill chicken on Sunday and use it for dinner that night. I make bacon in the oven on Sunday’s too.

“Then I have six to eight chicken breast/thighs and a pound of bacon left over for use during the week.”

One of his recipes was a cobb salad with bleu cheese and bacon, with chicken added.

He explained: “Cut up the chicken into strips, reheat and toss/dip them in Frank’s Red Hot and melted butter.

“Grilled chicken tacos with avocado, sour cream, hot sauce, cheese in a butter lettuce leaf.”

What is the keto diet?
