Short Weight Loss Success Stories on Keto Diet

“5 months 44 pounds down.” – Kindra

Keto success story 3

“So I figured I share my success so far anonymously. I had hypothyroidism and very bad eating habits for a long time which caused me to gain a tremendous amount of weight, at the highest being 234. I’ve done keto for 3 months so far and went from 234 to 178… and still have a long way to go but half way there. My goal is 140… and I remember thinking how I had 100 pounds to go and feeling overwhelmed.. now I have 38 pounds to go. The only difference is I have a cheat meal once a month, and I’ve learned if you do weight lifting in the same day, you go right back into ketosis the next day. Here is my before and after: picture to the left is May 28th 2017 at 234 lbs Right picture was last night (30th August 2017) 178 lbs” – Anonymous

Keto success story 2

“I started my keto journey in June 2017, I was tired, I overweight and generally felt really bad about myself. A friend told me about the keto diet and decided to give it a try, I mean what did I have to lose except fat and discouragement??? My result is that I have lost 37 pounds in 3 months and am feeling better about myself everyday. I still have a ways to go to reach my goal weight but now I am positive that I can get there!!! If I can do it, it is proof that anyone can reach their goals!!! I had a slow start and got really disappointed in occassion but I just kept at it. I have given up coffee, sodas, sugar…. I drink LOTS of water! I use stevia instead of sugar…. I got rid of the junk food and high carb products out of my home. When you climb into bed and your hubby reaches over and puts his hand on your stomach and says “Oh wow, I can really feel the difference in you now, you are so much smaller”… I feel really great now” – Sheila

Keto success story 4

“I loved other diets, like Weight Watchers for example, but I always got bored and then I’d quit and gain the weight back. In the last 3 weeks on Keto, I’ve lost over 10 lbs and clearly a few inches as you can see in my progress pics – I should have measured! I have cooked more on this Keto “diet” than any other one and I LOVE it. I honestly can’t wait to see what the next 3 weeks (and more!!!) bring. I’d like to lose 30 more pounds by the end of 2017!” – A member of our community

Keto diet success stories from Debbie

“I’ve been totally keto since September 19th, 2017. Before that, I was taking in about 5,000 to 6,000 calories a day when I went cold turkey. My detox lasted about 7 days. The 3rd day was the worst. Once I made it through the nausea and migraine the rest was ok. Tuesday of this week will make 12 weeks! My weigh in on September 19th was 261.6 pounds as of December 9th weigh in I’m at 189.0 lbs. In total, I’ve lost 72.6 pounds in 12 weeks.

Keto works for me because it’s very strict. You’re not allowed to eat high-carb snack at all, you can’t have any dirty foods. I love interment fasting. I eat my meals at 12pm and 4pm and I fast the other 20 hours each day.

My gym routine gets a little more intense every day now but started out very basic. I’m up to 1 mile on the elliptical, 5 mins of running on the treadmill, 12 minutes on the stair climber, 100 sit-ups a day, 25 squats and free weights. I do that 7 days a week.

I don’t know my goal weight. I have a very large frame but I’m guessing I will be comfortable in the low 160 range. I did this by myself. I did all the research. Good luck to anyone starting your journey the first few months will be intense but when people begin to notice it makes it worth it.” – Lorrel Dunn

“I started my keto journey on July 17, 2017. I keep it simple, nothing fancy, no crazy recipes and no keto breads and sweets just yet. I have lost 50lbs and feel amazing and have so much more energy. It’s hard not to focus on the number on that evil scale but even when I stall I stick to it and never give up! I take potassium and magnesium and that’s it. No BPC, not a big coffee drinker. This is the only WOE that I have been able to lose weight in years and stick to it. I do IF sometimes 16/8 or 20/4 but normally just Monday-Friday. No exercise yet but I do want to incorporate some weights soon.” – Kim Soto

“My name is Amy and I started my ketogenic Journey on July 24th, 2017, and have since lost 54 pounds and 64 inches from my body. I have also been taken off of one of my two hypertension medicines, I am no longer pre-diabetic, I no longer have bleeding ulcers which were verified by another endoscopy, and my migraines have ceased completely. I am still actually 49 pounds away from the high end of my goal, but I have no doubt that I will achieve my goal and maintain because I can’t even think of going back to the way I used to eat. Being metabolically resistant and over the age of 45, I have had absolutely no luck with any other way of eating until now.

For about a month prior to starting this way of eating I researched everything I could about the ketogenic lifestyle. I quickly learned to check every single thing I put into my body and record my macros on MyFitnessPal which helps me keep accountable for each day.

My main tips would be to try to drink as much water every day that you can, keep yourself accountable by keeping track of your Macros in MyFitnessPal or any of the other keto app, check everything that goes in your body for carbs. You’d be surprised how many carbs are in Foods you wouldn’t think have them. If you get a craving for chocolate, have a couple squares of a dark chocolate candy bar, or a fat bomb. They definitely squelch my cravings.

Basically you just need to decide that you want to commit to this long-term lifestyle and put it into motion. Be easy on yourself and even if you slip up don’t give up!” – Amy J. Zinobile-Shank

“After losing nearly 5 stone on a very strict limited diet for my wedding I put it all back on within 2 years. After seeing a picture of myself and also the birth of my daughter I decided that it was time to turn this around. I randomly saw an advert for the keto “way of life” and was sold on it. I started at 18 stone (114 kg) 10 and within 10 weeks am teetering around the 16 stone region (101 kg).

Now, to say it’s been 100% easy I would be lying. I am a massive fan of ale, sandwiches, pizza and pasta and in many occasions I have found myself thinking “I could murder a beer.” I even fell off the wagon and had curry chips and rice…but the mess I was in afterwards soon made me regret it. Stomach cramps and indigestion would be out to get it lightly.

But it is so easy to just put that Behind you due to the results that I have achieved in the eating plan set out in the keto diet. I am mentally happy, full of beans and cannot wait to see even more results in the coming months.
