When it comes to losing weight, it is easy to be overwhelmed with the huge number of different diet plans available. Looking to someone who has managed to slim down could be a good way to get inspiration on what method to use.

What did she eat?

The Reddit user explained she is 41-years-old and 5ft 4in tall and that her transformation took one year.

She said: “A year progress with keto diet and sports. Still keeping the diet and don’t want to go back!”

The keto diet plan is a high-fat diet where slimmers will try to drastically limit their carb intake to around 25 grams per day.

This is thought to help the body enter into a state called ketosis, which helps it burn more fat. Those on the plan can fill up foods such as meats, fish, nuts, avocados, eggs and dairy.

In order to limit carbs, dieters will usually avoid foods like bread, rice, pasta and high-sugar fruit.

Below her before and after photos, other Reddit users were quick to comment on her huge transformation.
